The wife & the widow

“Comment below sharing the most shocking book you’ve ever read.” Hmm. Well, I did read the first Hannibal Lecter novel, “Red Dragon,” years ago, and I found the appalling crimes pretty appalling.

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

Den of Viper-KA Knight
Trigger warnings galore!!!

The most shocking book I ever read was Firekeeper’s Daughter.

I suppose “shocking” is a relative term, but at the time I read it Judy Blume’s Summer Sisters felt very shocking.

it takes quite a bit to shock me. I guess maybe the diary of anne frank simply because I was very young when I read it and the horror of reality struck me for the first time.

I’d have to say What Lies Between Us by John Marrs was pretty shocking.

The most shocking book I’ve read recently is “If You Tell: A True Story of Murder, Family Secrets, and the Unbreakable Bond of Sisterhood” by Gregg Olsen. I read alot so there are many others but this is the most recent. Amazing a woman could be so cruel!

I loved the ending to The Handmaid’s Tale. Did not see that little twist coming…

In Cold Blood which I read when I was probably too young for it.

Hmm this is a hard one maybe the most shocking was The Lost by Natasha Preston!

Verity by Colleen Hoover

Probably something by Stephen King. I started a book of his as a teenager. There was a rape early on and I couldn’t keep reading.

The Night awe Burned. It has such a shocking didn’t seem it coming twist!

One of the most shocking for me was The Woman in cabin 10

The most shocking is Verity

The Wife Between Us, seriously did not see that coming!

No Exit by Taylor Adams
