    It was a juicy thriller that made me turn the pages especially first half of it. The second half became a bit predictable, and there were some issues with the plot and the twist. There were too few characters that made the case simple. All in all, if you're looking for a quick, e...

    Wow this book was excellent. It had so many twists which were brilliant - they had me in shock. The whole story was great and was put together extremely well. I couldn?t wait to find out what was going to happen next. The ending was brilliant and unexpected and it made me love the bo...

    I listened to this book on Audible whilst trying to navigate the Chicago expressways, so I wasn't always clear which of our two narrators was speaking. But the frightening traffic was a good test of an engaging plot. It is also an apposite warning against envy aroused by social media. ...

    This is one that let me down. Although I love psychological thrillers..I do like them to be entertaining. This one started out really strong but then it lost me. SPOILERS: I read my share of books with lousy endings but this goes a bit to far in my humble opinion. It just seem...

    I?m not normally one to pick up psychological thrillers, but when it comes to Alderson?s books, I have no hesitation in picking them up, and I?m glad that I ended up giving this book a go, because it seriously messes with your head (in the best way!). Alderson works the unreliabl...

    We have all done it, admit it, we have looked up someone we used to know and before we know it we are months into their social media feed and then accidentally we like a post or photo. EEEK! Well for Lizzie she goes that one step further and accidentally sends a bitchy message to Becca...

    Entertaining thriller. The twists kept coming, but without being too outlandish. Really enjoyed how the plot progressed. Recommend this book! ...

    4.5/5 :) Flew through this one in less than 24h. There's nothing like a great psychological thrillers with a female antagonist. ...

    This was one awesome book. And a new favorite author, too. I know it was supposed to be a thriller and there were a bunch of really tragic parts etc. but I found myself laughing more than anything. Sarah Alderson's developed two really close-to-home characters, and I think that's an...

    A cautionary tale on crack. This will make you check and double check every Facebook message you send. Lizzie is boozily FB stalking an old co-worker, Becca, and makes some juicy discoveries. So she sends their mutual friend, Flora, a gossipy, besauchy FB message updating her on Be...

    This was fun! Lizzie and Becca are colleagues - not friends - and let's be clear about that! Becca is beautiful, impeccably dressed, has the most handsome of boyfriends and, as it turns out, is an over-all annoyance to the dowdy Lizzie. At a work Christmas party it appears that Bec...

    It was a juicy thriller that made me turn the pages especially first half of it. The second half became a bit predictable, and there were some issues with the plot and the twist. There were too few characters that made the case simple. All in all, if you're looking for a quick, e...

    This is one that let me down. Although I love psychological thrillers..I do like them to be entertaining. This one started out really strong but then it lost me. SPOILERS: I read my share of books with lousy endings but this goes a bit to far in my humble opinion. It just seem...

    I?m not normally one to pick up psychological thrillers, but when it comes to Alderson?s books, I have no hesitation in picking them up, and I?m glad that I ended up giving this book a go, because it seriously messes with your head (in the best way!). Alderson works the unreliabl...

    We have all done it, admit it, we have looked up someone we used to know and before we know it we are months into their social media feed and then accidentally we like a post or photo. EEEK! Well for Lizzie she goes that one step further and accidentally sends a bitchy message to Becca...

    I found this book drew me in immediately as the style of writing was excellent. It dealt with female rivalry, envy, revenge starting in the workplace. I didn?t particularly like either of the main characters: Becca, a beautiful girl with a ?so-called? perfect life; and Lizzie, an...

    Entertaining thriller. The twists kept coming, but without being too outlandish. Really enjoyed how the plot progressed. Recommend this book! ...

    Loved! This book is like a cross between Friend Request and Gone Girl. And I absolutely love an unhinged female antagonist! If I ever write a book of my own, I might just call it ?Unhinged Female Antagonistic?. ...

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. A smart, gripping examination of the perils and pressures of social media. Social media is an intriguing thing, isn't it? The psychology behind it - why people choose to present themselves as unrealistically perfect...

    Well this book was one heck of a ride! Single White Female meets Gone Girl with the gloss of a perfect insta life makes this an incredibly modern and accessible psychological thriller. 3 years ago Becca had a terrible accident which changed her life forever, whilst Lizzie has be...

    If you are looking for a book that keeps you on your toes and has lots of twists and turns, then look no further than Sarah Alderson's Friends Like These. This is one of those books that you don't want to put down until the very last page. ...

    3.5 stars ...

    Great read! full of surprises and very engaging. I loved the writing style. Highly recommended. ...

    I thought from the summary of the book that this would be a psychological thriller perhaps with something new and interesting to say about the superficial nature of social media and how no-one ever really knows what goes on behind the camera. However, I didn't feel that the summary rea...

    This is one that let me down. Although I love psychological thrillers..I do like them to be entertaining. This one started out really strong but then it lost me. SPOILERS: I read my share of books with lousy endings but this goes a bit to far in my humble opinion. It just seem...

    I?m not normally one to pick up psychological thrillers, but when it comes to Alderson?s books, I have no hesitation in picking them up, and I?m glad that I ended up giving this book a go, because it seriously messes with your head (in the best way!). Alderson works the unreliabl...

    We have all done it, admit it, we have looked up someone we used to know and before we know it we are months into their social media feed and then accidentally we like a post or photo. EEEK! Well for Lizzie she goes that one step further and accidentally sends a bitchy message to Becca...

    I found this book drew me in immediately as the style of writing was excellent. It dealt with female rivalry, envy, revenge starting in the workplace. I didn?t particularly like either of the main characters: Becca, a beautiful girl with a ?so-called? perfect life; and Lizzie, an...

    Entertaining thriller. The twists kept coming, but without being too outlandish. Really enjoyed how the plot progressed. Recommend this book! ...

    Loved! This book is like a cross between Friend Request and Gone Girl. And I absolutely love an unhinged female antagonist! If I ever write a book of my own, I might just call it ?Unhinged Female Antagonistic?. ...

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. A smart, gripping examination of the perils and pressures of social media. Social media is an intriguing thing, isn't it? The psychology behind it - why people choose to present themselves as unrealistically perfect...

    Well this book was one heck of a ride! Single White Female meets Gone Girl with the gloss of a perfect insta life makes this an incredibly modern and accessible psychological thriller. 3 years ago Becca had a terrible accident which changed her life forever, whilst Lizzie has be...

    If you are looking for a book that keeps you on your toes and has lots of twists and turns, then look no further than Sarah Alderson's Friends Like These. This is one of those books that you don't want to put down until the very last page. ...

    3.5 stars ...

    Great read! full of surprises and very engaging. I loved the writing style. Highly recommended. ...

    I thought from the summary of the book that this would be a psychological thriller perhaps with something new and interesting to say about the superficial nature of social media and how no-one ever really knows what goes on behind the camera. However, I didn't feel that the summary rea...

    4.5/5 :) Flew through this one in less than 24h. There's nothing like a great psychological thrillers with a female antagonist. ...

    We all have stalked someone on social media. We all have possibly portrayed our online lives to be happier and better than real life. What happens when someone disrupts that life? How do you make them pay? Lizzie is about to find out. Basically y'all, bitches be CRAZY. This is a fun...

    #bitchinread #justenuffpyscho First impressions are everything they say; a bad first impression can lead to deadly consequences or at least that?s how the story goes in Friends Like These. Friends Like These is a warped, tangled, twisty tale, staring a wicked femme fatale who?...

    Wow this book was excellent. It had so many twists which were brilliant - they had me in shock. The whole story was great and was put together extremely well. I couldn?t wait to find out what was going to happen next. The ending was brilliant and unexpected and it made me love the bo...

    I absolutely love a creepy, crazy, twisted character and Friends Like These has two of them. This book was RIGHT up my street. I loved this book and was utterly gripped from beginning to end. It starts with a 999 transcript, with no indication of who?s making the call. The book th...

    While I found Friends Like These to be quite an addictive read, it ultimately left me with mixed feelings, and I think I enjoyed the first half of the book more than the second. My initial reaction to the ?twist? was some doubts as to whether the author had entirely played fair wit...

    Dang this was really good! ...

    I listened to this book on Audible whilst trying to navigate the Chicago expressways, so I wasn't always clear which of our two narrators was speaking. But the frightening traffic was a good test of an engaging plot. It is also an apposite warning against envy aroused by social media. ...

    This is one that let me down. Although I love psychological thrillers..I do like them to be entertaining. This one started out really strong but then it lost me. SPOILERS: I read my share of books with lousy endings but this goes a bit to far in my humble opinion. It just seem...

    I?m not normally one to pick up psychological thrillers, but when it comes to Alderson?s books, I have no hesitation in picking them up, and I?m glad that I ended up giving this book a go, because it seriously messes with your head (in the best way!). Alderson works the unreliabl...

    We have all done it, admit it, we have looked up someone we used to know and before we know it we are months into their social media feed and then accidentally we like a post or photo. EEEK! Well for Lizzie she goes that one step further and accidentally sends a bitchy message to Becca...

    I found this book drew me in immediately as the style of writing was excellent. It dealt with female rivalry, envy, revenge starting in the workplace. I didn?t particularly like either of the main characters: Becca, a beautiful girl with a ?so-called? perfect life; and Lizzie, an...

    Entertaining thriller. The twists kept coming, but without being too outlandish. Really enjoyed how the plot progressed. Recommend this book! ...

    Loved! This book is like a cross between Friend Request and Gone Girl. And I absolutely love an unhinged female antagonist! If I ever write a book of my own, I might just call it ?Unhinged Female Antagonistic?. ...

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. A smart, gripping examination of the perils and pressures of social media. Social media is an intriguing thing, isn't it? The psychology behind it - why people choose to present themselves as unrealistically perfect...

    Well this book was one heck of a ride! Single White Female meets Gone Girl with the gloss of a perfect insta life makes this an incredibly modern and accessible psychological thriller. 3 years ago Becca had a terrible accident which changed her life forever, whilst Lizzie has be...

    If you are looking for a book that keeps you on your toes and has lots of twists and turns, then look no further than Sarah Alderson's Friends Like These. This is one of those books that you don't want to put down until the very last page. ...

    Great read! full of surprises and very engaging. I loved the writing style. Highly recommended. ...

    I thought from the summary of the book that this would be a psychological thriller perhaps with something new and interesting to say about the superficial nature of social media and how no-one ever really knows what goes on behind the camera. However, I didn't feel that the summary rea...

    4.5/5 :) Flew through this one in less than 24h. There's nothing like a great psychological thrillers with a female antagonist. ...

    This was one awesome book. And a new favorite author, too. I know it was supposed to be a thriller and there were a bunch of really tragic parts etc. but I found myself laughing more than anything. Sarah Alderson's developed two really close-to-home characters, and I think that's an...
