Wow. I finished this book in about a week, which is VERY good for me. The only time I really read is before bed for about 30 minutes to an hour. I just finished reading and had to write down my thoughts straight away!
This weeks book of the week is:
The Rebound by Aga Lesiewicz
Ok, so let’s talk about the context and story line of the book first. It is about a girl named Anna, who is a successful media executive, has a great boyfriend, many close friends and her own lovely home. She also has a chocolate Labrador named Wispa, who she absolutely adores, and takes out for runs everyday.
Suddenly, Anna’s perfect life starts to slowly fall apart, when out jogging in her local area, something that she does everyday. She comes across a handsome stranger, and starts to take a route into unfamiliar territory. For this, she has to face the dark and terrible consequences.
Her obsession with this particular handsome stranger intensifies, her personal life becomes poisonous and pressured, and the atmosphere becomes unsettled.
Basically, it was discovered there was some murderers, as well as rapes, that started occurring in her local area, where she always went jogging with her dog, Wispa. Everything starts to revolve around these. I can’t really say too much else otherwise this will turn into an MA 15+ blog.
To put it simply, I struggled to put this book down. All I wanted to do was to find out what was going to happen next. The book was written in a way that just kept you hooked and reading. It wasn’t boring in the slightest. There was so many events that happened, and definitely shock ones too. The best thing to do is to go in with an open mind with this book, because you will never guess what will happen next.
The main character, Anna, was pretty relatable. I think a lot of us could relate, as she was addicted to caffeine, and loved dogs.
If you’re into crime, thrillers, mystery, or fiction, I would highly, HIGHLY give this one a read. I honestly wasn’t expecting it to be this good. The only bad thing I could say about it is the repetitiveness with Anna going jogging, but it was written in a different way each time which did help the repetitiveness slightly.
I rate this one a BIG 10/10! Definitely binge-worthy.
Let me know if you’ve read this book and your thoughts! Or if you’ve read this review and now want to read it!
This book is definitely for a mature audience.
