In the Vines Reviews
I tried 3 times to get into this book, but I just couldn't!
The premise itself is a good one: a woman dies while staying at her sister's guest house, which results in tearing the family apart. But then all the other plot points come in -- the sister is having an affair, she stalks the wife, there's a lady being kept in a barn... what? There's just too much going on. Combine that with the storyline jumping back and forth between past, recent past, and now and it just makes for a mish-mash that is ...more
What the................................................. did I just read?
This book is not for anyone with high blood pressure. It is not for anyone who wants to think critically about post-traumatic stress, schizophrenia, or any other mental illness. It is not for anyone who has anything to do in the next 10 hours because you will be GLUED to this thing until it's over.
This book is insane. INSANE. And I really enjoyed it.
FIVE FRIGHTENING STARS to the Kindle version with audio--It's FABULOUS!!!!!!!
Allow me to collect myself. I might need a puff of Albuterol.
And now, I will be off building a new Hall of Fame shelf. This shelf shall be titled "NOVEL LONG SPASM OF TERROR" and it shall contain this one and only book. With a spotlight shining down on it. And maybe an occasional strobe light. And scary music.
If Misery and Sharp Objects and Dolores Claiborne all banged into each other, rolled around on a dangerous cli ...more

Thanks to Amazon Publishing partner I was gifted In The Vines by Shannon Kirk via Netgalley. Wow! This was such a fun, creepy, crazy read!
I have a rule. A rule that is pretty stupid on my part but still, my rule. If I can’t read a book within two days, I lose interest 🤷🏻♀ Why am I like this? No clue, just my thing. Well, this gem broke my rule. With life, school, recitals, etc my reading time this week was limited. So, to my surprise I ended this gem on day 4. I could NOT stop! I had to know wh ...more
Reviewing books is daunting – not because the writing is hard, but because when you love a book, it’s so hard not to spoil it for everyone else. In the Vines by Shannon Kirk (I am about to read everything else she’s ever written) has without a doubt been my favorite book of the summer...so far. Amazon recommended this book for me, and I hesitate to read Amazon recommendations because I haven’t always had the best luck with that. However, they got it right this time. This story gave me chills as ...more
The writing style and I just didn't get along too well.
