⚠️ Boy does this author like to write crazy stories involving women and cars!
⚠️ I will start by noting that this book has some issues in my opinion. There are some confusing storylines (too many unreliable narrators), some extremely convenient situations, and more than a few ridiculous occurrences. Do I care? No! Because this was an explosive read with a bad*ss heroine who took care of business!
⚠️ Once the action started it didn’t stop! I read this in one sitting!
⚠️ If this book doesn’t end up on the big screen, I’ll be shocked.
⚠️ Not all enjoyable reads have to be great literature or have an epic plot. Sometimes it is simply fun to race through an exciting/claustrophobic/tense situation, well beyond anything I’d ever experience in real life (hopefully), and get through it to a satisfying conclusion. This author does that well… at least for me. I will continue reading his books!
Thank you @NetGalley and Joffe Books for an eARC of this book, which I reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

I haven’t done a monthly wrap-up since June! I fell into a weird reading slump practically all summer. I was reading a book here or there, but I was certainly off my normal pace by quite a bit. I finally feel like I got back into the swing of things in October and I am so excited to be reading again! I’m also ecstatic to report that 12 out of the 14 books I read this month were NetGalley ARCs so I am getting caught up on some of my backlog! I am still behind on posting some of my reviews, but hopefully I will catch up with those in the next week.
Now the details! Below you will find a summary of my October reading, upcoming books, and my reading stats so far this year.
