In A Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

Goodreads Blurb:
What should be a cozy and fun-filled weekend deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in Ruth Ware’s suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller.

Leonora, known to some as Lee and others as Nora, is a reclusive crime writer, unwilling to leave her “nest” of an apartment unless it is absolutely necessary. When a friend she hasn’t seen or spoken to in years unexpectedly invites Nora (Lee?) to a weekend away in an eerie glass house deep in the English countryside, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. Forty-eight hours later, she wakes up in a hospital bed injured but alive, with the knowledge that someone is dead. Wondering not “what happened?” but “what have I done?”, Nora (Lee?) tries to piece together the events of the past weekend. Working to uncover secrets, reveal motives, and find answers, Nora (Lee?) must revisit parts of herself that she would much rather leave buried where they belong: in the past.

Things I liked:
1) Lenora- I did feel as though she was really naive about some things but I still thought she was a great character and the book would not have been the same without her.

2) The writing of this book was done so well. I felt as though it was really suspenseful and sometimes gave me chills.

3)  I liked the way the book was split up in what was happening and then what already happened and you were just left wondering what was going on.

Things I was not fond of:
1) Another rushed ending that really didn't get explained well. 

2) I thought some of the characters were lacking in personality and just were really there for no reason.

My rating: πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
