Review✨.Reputation by Sara Shepard – 3/5⭐️.
This one was just okay for me. I really thought I was going to love it because I do enjoy those drama filled books (tv shows, movies, etc) that sort of pull you from real life into a crazy world far from your own. Plus the plot sounds incredible. But for some reason this one just didn’t do it for me.
I loved Pretty Little Liars so I knew I wanted to read this but it definitely took me a little while to get through. Although, the author did a great job at adding a lot of twists and turns and wow moments to keep you intrigued! The ending just fell flat for me and maybe it was just too dramatic? But I was invested in finding out who the killer was. There are a lot of characters you hear from which I typically don’t mind in books like this, but I did find that I didn’t overly like many of them.
I did hear from previous reviews that if you enjoyed Big Little Lies you may enjoy this one (which I loved Big Little Lies) but I still like Big Little Lies more!.
Here is the goodreads synopsis: “Aldrich University is rocked to its core when a hacker dumps 40,000 people’s e-mails—the entire faculty, staff, students, alums—onto an easily searchable database. Rumors and affairs immediately leak, but things turn explosive when Kit Manning’s handsome husband, Dr. Greg Strasser, is found murdered. Kit’s sister, Willa, returns for the funeral, setting foot in a hometown she fled fifteen years ago, after a night she wishes she could forget. As an investigative reporter, Willa knows something isn’t right about the night Greg was killed, and she’s determined to find the truth. What she doesn’t expect is that everyone has something to hide. And with a killer on the loose, Willa and Kit must figure out who killed Greg before someone else is murdered. Told from multiple points of view, Reputation is full of twists, turns, and shocking reveals. It’s a story of intrigue, sabotage, and the secrets we keep—and how far we go to keep them hidden.”
Trigger warnings: murder, rape, molestation, talk of suicide.
