Penny For Our Thoughts

Traveling Sisters Book Reviews. Join us on our adventures through the books we read

What we finished reading:

The Last Time I LiedThe Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

Norma and I read The Last Time I Lied with eight of our Traveling Sisters and this was a fast-paced entertaining read for us all.

What we thought:

The Last Time I Lied had all the elements like the camp setting, the eerie lake and girls who go missing in the night to make this a spooky, creepy good story that sent chills up our back.  

Who we recommend to:

We recommend this one to all readers but especially for readers looking for a tense, entertaining and fun creepy good story.  If you enjoy a little cinematic feel to your story that is so well done – it feels like a movie playing in your mind.  This is definitely one not to be missed.  We also recommend to reading groups for a fun and entertaining discussion as you share your suspicions and theories.


The Death of Mrs. WestawayThe Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware

Norma and I read The Death of Mrs Westaway with five of our Traveling Sisters.

What we thought:

This was a very interesting sister read for us.  We clearly were split into two different views on how we felt about this.  The twist and turns in this one kept some of us staying up late and feeling a little book hangover the next morning.   The rest of us were left with our heads spinning in confusion with those twists and turns.

Who we recommend to:

We recommend this one to all thriller lovers to see if it will leave you book hangover or your head spinning.  Please see on review and drop us a comment and let us know which side you were left on.

The Keeper of Lost ThingsThe Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan

Norma and I read The Keeper of Lost Things with three of our Traveling Sisters.

What we thought:

We all thought the premise of The Keeper of Lost Things was an interesting and unique concept and we enjoyed the feel-good feeling after reading this one.

Who we recommend it to:

For readers looking for a cute, quirky, magical feel-good easy story.


Tin ManTin Man by Sarah Winman

I read Tin Man with my Traveling Sister Jan.  We ended up in two different coulees after reading this one.  We both enjoyed the story, however, I am not sure the timing was right for me with this story as I struggled to stay focused.

Who I recommend it to:

To readers looking for a quiet story that compacts a lot in it while exploring different types of grief, love and loss.
