    I read this book a few months back and it was everything I ve been waiting for from Tarryn Fisher Not that she hasn t delivered before, but she OVER delivered with this one About a day after I read it, my mind was still numb I needed a distraction, so I asked one of my many sons, Do you know of any apps that can distract me from this callipygian book I just read He said, TikTok It s great I already had a TikTok account, but it s been a couple of years since I logged on So I took his a I read this book a few months back and it was everything I ve been waiting for from Tarryn Fisher Not that she hasn t delivered before, but she OVER delivered with this one About a day after I read it, my mind was still numb I needed a distraction, so I asked one of my many sons, Do you know of any apps that can distract me from this callipygian book I just read He said, TikTok It s great I already had a TikTok account, but it s been a couple of years since I logged on So I took his advice because I was in desperate need of a distraction It s been four months since I read The Wives This book was the last book I read I m not sure I ll ever read another one again because of TikTok Last night I saw a video of a woman with a split tongue and she was using the two halves of her tongue to clap to the song, If you re happy and you know it, clap your hands Except she was using her tongue to do the clap clap part instead of her hands Did you know if you have your tongue split in half that it becomes TWO tongues that you control separately I would have never known that if it weren t for TikTok And if it weren t for The Wives, I would have never logged onto TikTok to begin with Five stars Or ten, if you split them in half

    what the fuck.I can t trust Goodreads reviews any because how is this a 4 starred book IM I think this is another instance where the most of the people who ve read from this author are new to the thriller genre and absolutely love it Not meeeeee.This book s plot was ridiculous right to the climax ridiculous to the point where it s non believable Actually most thrillers are non believable but there s a groundness to it, a reality check of plausible believability But not here, folks what the fuck.I can t trust Goodreads reviews any because how is this a 4 starred book IM I think this is another instance where the most of the people who ve read from this author are new to the thriller genre and absolutely love it Not meeeeee.This book s plot was ridiculous right to the climax ridiculous to the point where it s non believable Actually most thrillers are non believable but there s a groundness to it, a reality check of plausible believability But not here, folks Too many plot holes Too many what ifs and whys and whats and oh nos Don t be fooled Like I was Haha.hA.oh man.Not gonna lie, first half of the book got me intrigued and the writing style is extremely fast paced and engaging but.BUT It all just got all downhill from there for me The rest of this book got extremely cliche and predictable And then I saw the twist and I was hopingplease , that this twist wasn t going to be the case.but oh boy It was Our lead girl is also very contradicting herself She d realize something wrong and shady but then later either a brush it off and make up excuses for it or b forget all that monologuing and deep though contemplating on chapter 15 to do the opposite on chapter 20 But it all makes sense becauseI can NOT stand when mental illness is used as a twist plot device It s so cheap not to mention degrading and problematic And that ending Go aheadHelp yourself Who knows, you might like it 1 STAR for writing It s 5 AM as I m writing this review so time to sleep for another 72 hours and purge my brain of this mess.Twitter Bookstagram Youtube

    It s all too perfect, I think When things are that perfect, something is wrongTarryn Fisher is and always will be one of my all time favourite authors because of The Opportunist Whilst I am a big fan of her romance novels, The Wives was my first attempt at reading one of her psychological thrillers This review is going to be slightly problematic because this book was both a mindfuck and a clusterfuck at the same time._______________ Dark and Unwavering My first tip for this book wouIt s all too perfect, I think When things are that perfect, something is wrongTarryn Fisher is and always will be one of my all time favourite authors because of The Opportunist Whilst I am a big fan of her romance novels, The Wives was my first attempt at reading one of her psychological thrillers This review is going to be slightly problematic because this book was both a mindfuck and a clusterfuck at the same time._______________ Dark and Unwavering My first tip for this book would be to dive in not knowing much Simply because everything hits ten times harder that way The plot of TW is quite simple on the surface level, but as each chapter unfolds, you start questioning and doubting nearly every character The deeper I fell into this story, the darker it became, theI started feeling uncomfortable and uneasy It pulled me in right from the start and every time I put it down, I wanted to pick it back up again.Fisher portrays a complex commentary on the starving feeling of jealousy and envy through this novel that is unparalleled with anything I have ever read before The storyline dealt with topics such as polygamy, manipulation, insecurities and abuse not necessarily in that order It was refreshing to see a different type of suspense, wherein the story grabs you with the obviousthan the mystery I struggled with the writing at the start, I found the structure to be fragmented and the flow, jarring It was a lot of this then I did that then this but I soon adapted to it to find that it surprisingly suited the story very wellSomething s going on and I feel like I m the only person in this marriage who doesn t know whatThe main reason I m giving this 3 stars is mainly because the latter end of the book lost me slightly I felt like the twist could have been executed and developed better The angle it took became very dysfunctional and it felt like the story was trying to squeeze the mindfuck towel dry So much so that it soon became a clusterfuck It felt like I was trying to keep up with every characters arc and story involvement that I was lost in the crowd I also detached from our heroine, Thursday quite often She was a very dichotomous character and throughout the story, I wanted her to stand up to her opinions and beliefs but she kept letting others treat her badly There were times where she did in fact come through and push against the doormat stereotype but it was always met with a contradiction in her personality.I do recommend this to anyone that wants to dip their toes into psychological thrillers, or even the regular readers in the genre I would not throw caution to the wind however because this story can get very dark and gritty at the best of times It hurt me at times because I empathized with Thursday s plight to its core, I found myself rooting for her situation even though I had my conflicts with her I wish I could say that the ending left me completley satisfied but I felt like it was a very rushed ending and the story only unfolded in the last 20% Beyond this, I enjoyed myself and definitely need a light read now.Credits to the artist of the paintings The quotes in this review are taken from an ARC and are subject to change preceding final publication

    First half was 3 stars, second half bumped it down to 1 star for relying on a heavy handed and cheap plot twist and turning into a convoluted and melodramatic soap opera.

    This story went from super intriguing, to stupid, to boring, tostupid, and then it became downright terrible Pre reading thoughts I can t wait to see how fucked up this is going to get.
