I’ve decided to do Throwback Thursday but blog style. I am going to select a book I have read before and see if I would still read it.
This week’s Throwback Thursday is suspense/horror/thriller.

Ah, end of summer, one more week till school starts, and Ruth and her friend Mandy are wading downriver near Ruth’s grandfather’s cattle and hay farm. Always fun! That is until they spy a newly built house along an upper bank and decide to explore it and are interrupted by two escaped prisoners on their way to Florida. They stab Mandy and take Ruth hostage. She’s never been even slapped, but now she is exposed to the kind of evil that she’s only heard about. One of the men, Rewis, is a serial killer. He loves to shock. There are many sacrifices on the three-month boat ride downriver, but THE sacrifice at the end of the journey is Rewis’s most shocking.
Other places you can find The Sacrifice: Barnes and Noble
Did I like The Sacrifice when I first read it? Not exactly. It was hard to read what Ruth went through when she was with those men.
Would I read The Sacrifice now? I am on the fence. I would have to reread it to see if it lived up to my 4-star rating.
How many stars did I give The Sacrifice when I first read it? 4-stars
How many stars would I give Rebellious Desire now? 3 stars. I would also have to reread the book to see if I am correct in giving it a 3-star rating.
