I’m back from my small hiatus! I needed a little time to catch up and make new Pinterest covers, try and fix some of the performance issues of my site, all that good stuff. But, I’m back and here with a review of the Woman in Cabin 10!
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve seen this book grace my feed more than once. I’ve had it since March, my boyfriend bought it for the first part of my birthday surprise (the second part was a book shopping spree, do I have a keeper or what?!) but I had so many ARCs to read I just now got around to it. So let’s start with a summary for those of you who haven’t heard of the Woman in Cabin 10 before.
Summary From Goodreads
Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and terrifying nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong.From the Woman in Cabin 10 on Goodreads
My Review of the Woman in Cabin 10
I think I should start with how I enjoy and review books since this book has a lot of differing opinions on it. I don’t nitpick a book post-reading it. If I was able to enjoy the book while I read it and it consumed my attention, then I enjoy it. I read a lot of reviews after I finished it. Most of these reviews said they had to “suspend the idea of what’s possible”. While that may be true, I just blatantly didn’t think about it. I was not drawn out of the story, thinking “is this even possible?” instead, I sat holding my breath and anxiously awaiting finding out what would happen next.
This book was so hard to put down! There are so many possibilities in this who-done-it story that you’re truly not sure until the end. No one knows anything about anyone on the boat and that’s what makes it so wonderful. Everyone’s suspicious and it’s perfect.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. It held my attention, and every time I set it down I wanted to pick it up so I could find out what was going to happen.
My rating: 5/5
