What Doesn't Kill Her

Goodreads Summary:
Jordan Rivera is an ordinary kid with an ordinary family, until a vicious killer takes it all away, sparing her, but leaving her broken. The murders of her father, mother and brother destroy something inside Jordan, who spends ten long, mute years in an institution. Catching a glimpse of a news report about another family slaying, Jordan at last breaks her silence. Now she’s out, and she molds herself—body and mind—into an instrument of justice.

While a young detective pursues the case on his own, Jordan teams up with members of her support group, people like her, damaged by violent crime. They have their own stories of pain, heartache, and vengeance denied. With their help, Jordan will track down the killer before he can ravage any more lives. Her life – and her sanity – depend on it.

My Review:
Page turner from the very beginning. The characters were extremely well-developed. The novel felt very realistic as I felt like I was the main character experiencing all that she was experiencing.

This is a story about a serial killer that leaves a victim behind to tell the tale and as the story develops unlikely links between the killings and characters are revealed.

4/5 stars

I'm Back and bookish as ever!

I don’t know how I let this blog falter for almost 2 years. It’s both shocking and disappointing. I miss reading and writing about what I read. The blog makes me accountable in a good way for what I read. It also doesn’t hurt that I get ARC’s for having a book blog.

I plan on making updates to all of my current posts and then diving right into reviewing again. I’ve definitely been reading all this time!!!! I know people probably thought I was swept away to another country or some other equally exciting adventure, but the truth is I just prioritized other things over this, and I shouldn’t have. So now I’m back and hope to bring an updated and exciting blog for you to read!
