4 Disturbingly Good and Twisted Stars to BABY TEETH!

Why I wanted to read this one……This book was a Traveling Sisters Group Read that I missed out on reading and with the so many strong reactions and thoughts towards this book I just knew that I had to read it! I don’t think I have ever been so interested in finding out what my thoughts would be over a book like I was with this one.

So what did I think…….Well, I quite enjoyed it! Now there were a few scenes intended to shock the reader which I think would definitely make this book not an enjoyable read for some but, for this reader to be totally honest once I read those scenes they were totally forgotten. Until, after finishing the book and then discussing it with Brenda then I was like oh right, I forgot all about those scenes. I was just so entertained in how devious and manipulative Hanna was towards her mother, Suzette that I really needed to know how this story would play out. When I wasn’t reading this book, I was thinking about it.

BABY TEETH by ZOJE STAGE is a disturbing, uncomfortable, and downright creepy tale about a 7-year-old girl named Hanna that wants her Daddy all to herself but her Mommy (Suzette) stands in her way of her happily ever after.

ZOJE STAGE delivers quite the chilling tale here that was well-written with an easy to read writing style to make this quite the fast-paced read. The story is told in alternating voices and perspectives between Suzette and Hanna, I enjoyed both of their perspectives equally. The things that Hanna was capable of was downright diabolical and creepy!

What I didn’t like…..The only thing that I questioned here though was if a seven-year-old was actually capable of doing some of the acts that she did in this book.

I was totally immersed in this tale and found it quite the entertaining and enjoyable read but I do understand that this book will not be for everyone so with that I recommend with caution. If you love a good horror or a dark psychological thriller you should really enjoy this one though! I know I do and did!

Reading Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage was a whole different experience in the coulee for me. So my review for this one is going to be a bit different too. I really don’t know what coulee I ended up in with this very different book from any that I have ever read before.

Baby Teeth is a dark domestic suspense that I recommend with caution. It’s bold and daring, unnerving, disturbing and an unsettling read. It could have you turning those pages as fast as you can or you could be closing the book as fast as you can. Or maybe even turning those pages as fast as you can and wish you would have closed the book when you had a chance.

For me, I was turning those pages as fast as I could but I struggled with things just not adding up or working for me. My biggest concern with this story was with Hannah’s age and I just took everything really lightly with this story because she seemed just too young for this story to work for me. It wasn’t that dark to me. I just tried to go with it and put some of those nagging thoughts aside and enjoy the shocking reveals and twists to this story. Overall I enjoyed Baby Teeth but it did leave me with not too much to say.

Traveling Sister in a Coulee Reading Missing Molly by Natalie Barelli

Missing MollyMissing Molly by Natalie Barelli

Kaceey’s Rating  4.5 of 5 stars

Review by Kaceey and read in a coulee with Brenda

Rachel Holloway’s community paper is in big trouble. If they can’t cook up some marketing magic to draw in sponsors, the paper will fold. (Pardon the pun.)
When one staff member recommends a podcast, everyone is quickly on-board. They decide to focus their premiere podcast on finding Molly Forster, a girl whose entire family was murdered fifteen years ago. Poor Molly, having vanished, was never seen or heard from again.
And now with the staffs’ podcast choice made, Rachel is suddenly griped with fear. She can’t let this happen! After all, Molly Forster is hiding in plain sight.

“Have you seen Molly Forster?”

There were so many moments that I was lulled into the story, predicting with great confidence where it was going, only to ‘gasp’ as I was launched in another direction. (Touché!) The author has a gift for dispersing pleasant surprises throughout. This one’s going to keep you guessing right to the last page!

The second book I’ve read by Natalie Barelli with one more sitting on my shelf waiting for me. Can’t wait to get to it! Highly recommend!

Thank you to NetGalley, The Last Bureau and Natalie Barelli for an ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.
