Book Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

A destination wedding has gone wrong on a remote island off the coast of Ireland. A dead body is found during the reception and all the guests are suddenly suspects.  

The Guest List is a whole mood. I found this book to be completely engaging. Rich, descriptive and captivating characters will immediately grasp your attention while a primitive fear oozes in the background. What an utterly engrossing “who dunnit” that you will not want to put down. My thoughts on the last TWO consuming hours of audio-

Ooooohhhh…..oh my….Nooooo!… 🙈….really!?….aaah….yes!!!…. wait, what?! 🙊….$@%#$…..why is there no nail biting emoji?!?

Lucy Foley also wrote The Hunting Party, another No. 1 best seller. It’s on my TBR!

Audiobook Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I adore audiobooks with a full cast of eclectic characters! The Guest List was exciting and hearing it read definitely added value to the reading experience with a talented array of accents.  I highly recommend listening to this book!

Hi friends!! I’m Jenni, The Nerdy Gourmet. I love books and I love food. Combining the two with a splash of travel has become my passion. I am a self taught cook/baker and I believe that everyone can cook from scratch! I’m here with recipes and Nerdy Tips to help along the way.  
I review books, mostly ‘read’ via audio, and I create recipes inspired by the story lines. Sometimes if I am deeply moved by a story, I will travel and try my best to experience the book- and bring you along via my blog! I provide all the photographs and content for the Nerdy Gourmet (unless otherwise noted).
