First Impression Friday – The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

First Impression Friday is a meme created and hosted by Joe @J.W.  Martin – Storeys of Stories. Based on this sampling of your current read, give a few impressions and predict what you’ll think by the end.
• Did you think you’d love it and ended up hating it? Or did you think you’d hate it and wound up loving it? Or were you exactly right?

I bought this book back in January after reading numerous wonderful reviews. Of course I added it to the growing physical tbr pile, thinking I’d pick it up when we had some terrible weather or some other excuse. The truth is I was rather daunted by it’s size, 512 pages and because it has continued to get rave reviews. I was absolutely delighted when Yvo@It’sAllAbout Books agreed to a buddy read.


Everything about it has totally hooked me. It’s definitely going to be a 5 star read!

  1. I’m so glad to be buddy reading this one with you! Looks like we finally have a 5 star read on our hands… 😉 I love how our buddy read is making me read this slower, so I can truly savour each chapter instead of just rushing through it like I normally would. ❤
