    This is a tough one. I had high expectations for "In A Dark, Dark Wood" by Ruth Ware, but I must be honest - I'm extremely disappointed with this clunky novel. I had 2 main problems. The first being, the writing. I will say I did enjoy the plot, even though the pay-off was mediocre at ...

    3/3.5?!?!!! This book left me in such anger. The beginning was so fast and I was so sucked in and then the middle left me feeling lethargic and as if I were reading as I was walking through mud. Then the end.... The end totally blew my mind. I couldn't believe it happened the way it di...
