Although I'm not into reading books with cussing and graphic violence, the summary you've written sounds like the author has written a well-crafted story. Good job on the review!

The book Eating Bull by Carrie Rubin is a triller that is full of suspense. An OCD serial killer who despises fat people is targeting a lonely and obese teenager. The author gives an interesting insight of today's real-life issues of bullying through great plots and captivating characters. Last but not least, the design on the book cover is really eye-catching and sensational! :angry-screaming:

This has been an outlier for me for a while (I actually tried to win a copy before I even knew it was reviewed here), so, while I'm still on the fence, I'm thinking about reading this :eusa-think:
However...not sure when that would be.

A big congrats on it being chosen for Book of the Month!

I have finished the book and liked it. The pace was a bit slow at times, but I enjoyed the book and felt sympathy for some of the characters. Thank you for the nice review!

I very much enjoyed the way this review was written. I feel like it did a good job touching on most of the things you would want to know before reading a book. I'm not sure if the general subject area is my preferred genre, however I can never turn down a good psychological thriller novel.
