My Bookish Thoughts
This is a stunning psychological thriller. With amazing unpredictable twists that keeps you guessing. A darkish fiction that kept me engaged from start to finish.
A brisk faced paced book that is a roller coaster ride. Well developed characters and a compelling storyline.
This is one book you need to pick up and read
From Chapter 2 of Not Like Everyone Else
The rush starts to die down, and I finally think that I’m in the clear. I haven’t seen the familiar face in at least two minutes. But with one final look up before going back to my book, I realize that’s not the case.
I look up to see Harper waving to me from the ordering counter of the café.
A sinking feeling enters my stomach. This is the last person I ever wanted to see again. And yet
here she is only a few feet away and waving in my direction. Well, this sucks.
Harper makes her way with a coffee in hand toward my table. “Hey, Ryan how have you been? It’s been years since I last saw you!” She sets the coffee down and sits her tan ass right in the chair across from mine. Completely uninvited.
“Oh, you know I’ve been good. What have you been up to?” I try to make enough small talk to not be completely rude. And hopefully get her to leave me alone.
“Nothing really. I’m still at the community college and trying to figure out what I want to do with my life and all. But what about you? How are you and Corey? You guys have always been the cutest couple!” Harper is all smiles as she talks.
I slowly shrink down to nothing. Of course, she wants to know about Corey. Everyone in our high school knew about us but since high school, not a single person stayed in touch. All those friendships real or fake just disappeared into thin air as if they never truly existed. I knew it would happen like that once everyone left on their big college journey and only visiting on holidays. And honestly, I was much happier this way. Except, before I had Corey, now I’m alone.
