Reviews Lock Every Door

  • Chelsea Humphrey
    JULY 2019 BOTM SELECTION"It certainly doesn't feel cursed. Or haunted. Or any other menacing label you could put on an apartment building. It's comfortable, spacious and, other than the wallpaper, nicely decorated. It's easy to see why Nick and Greta choose to live here. I would certainly stay longer than three months if I could afford to. Which makes it all the stranger that Ingrid chose to leave."Muahahahaha. Mr. "Sager" has done it again folks...

    Moral of the story: (view spoiler)[Eat the rich. (hide spoiler)]Look at me reading all three books from this author within a month... At the beginning I thought this was going to be my favorite book out of the three but the ending twist made it my least favorite.An apartment sitting job with a very generous salary seems to good to be true for our main character. Mysterious residents, creepy wallpaper and disappearances...Personally I felt Moral...

    Are you f*cking kidding me?!Unpopular opinion below! I originally wrote a long and detailed review discussing all of my issues with this book. However, I don't want to ruin the experience for other readers who might enjoy this book, so I have cut it down to the main points below.The Good: High level of tension and suspense.The Bad: Everything else!Overall: One big convoluted mess. Believability: Nothing is believable. NOTHING. The Protagonist: T...

    Is it over-the-top craziness?.... yep Is it addictive and entertaining?... absolutely! Did I feel like I was right next to Jules with my heart-pounding along with her?.... I was practically holding her hand! Who is Jules, you might ask? She is the ever so curious protagonist who becomes an amateur sleuth when her stay at the ever so famous Bartholomew Apartment building begins to uncover its unsettling past. The buildings deep, dark secrets beg...

    My thoughts in a nutshell I had high hopes for this one, and it doesn't live up to my expectation. I'm not saying that it was a bad book, but it isn't a 5 stars read like his other book (The Last Time I Lied). I still like it.The story is about…Skip over this point if you don't like the sneak peek. ... an old apartment where strange things start to happen. No visitors. Too strict rulabout…Skipit.The My thoughts in a nutshell I had high hop...

    Rules, Rules, Rules- YOU MUST OBEY THE RULES. They are simple rules really - do not disturb the other residents at the Bartholomew, no overnight visitors and you must spend every night in your apartment. With added questions thrown in about drinking, smoking, family, etc.Reeling from a recent breakup, Jules has been sleeping on her best friend’s couch, when she sees the ad for an apartment sitter on Craigslist, she applies for the job.

    Ho. Lee. Chit.What a page-turner. I found myself awake until the sun came up, frantically turning the pages to get to the end because ...I COULDN'T WAIT FOR IT TO BE OVER!!I LOOOOOVED Final Girls. That may be because I have a special connection to it that I'm positive nobody cares about but either way, I thought it was superb.I LIKED The Last Time I Lied.

    Sometimes a dream come true can turn out to be your worst nightmare! 😱 This totally lived up to my expectations and the hype y'all! 🥰 I have been impatiently awaiting this book since I finished The Last Time I Lied (which I also loved!) last summer. Sager has become a summer staple for me and this book was without a doubt my most highly anticipated summer read. Thankfully, it did NOT disappoint. I devoured this book friends! I could not tu...

    Just when I’d given up hope on finding a fun summer thriller, along comes this book! Jules is having a string of bad luck and finds herself without a home and job, little money in her bank account, and no family to lean on for support. She answers an ad for an apartment sitter at The Bartholomew, an exclusive luxurious apartment building in NYC. The pay to stay in this fancy apartment? $1K a week. She can’t believe her stroke of good luck whe...

    3.5 stars.You know the old saying if it seems too good to be true, it probably is? Well, that's something that Jules Larsen should have thought of when she accepted an assignment as an apartment sitter at one of the oldest and most exclusive NYC apartment buildings, the Bartholomew.Jules is between jobs and, because her relationship with her boyfriend just ended, between apartments. The Bartholomew was the setting of her favorite book from childh...

    A Bizarre, Boring, Bust :(If this was to have chilled and thrilled me, it failed. I just did not connect with this “Hunh?” storyline, which seemed to veer off in strange directions. One dimensional characters only added to my disappointment. I enjoyed my first read by this author, “ The Last Time I Lied,” so maybe my expectations were too high.If you are a big fan of this author, you may very well love this one. There are mixed reviews .....
  • Katie B
    Loved it! I had high hopes for this one because I have liked the author's other novels and I honestly think this is his best one yet. I literally had an out loud "ha" type moment when everything was revealed towards the end. It was just this bizarre combination of being simple but yet clever. I really enjoyed this one and I hope others have fun with it as well.Jules Larsen needs money so she accepts a job as an apartment sitter at the high-profil...

    I read my first Riley Sager book! I read my first Riley Sager book! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Jules Larsen is an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, a big-deal property in Manhattan. Oh, and the Bartholomew is rather mysterious on top of it. There are rules, though, and Jules is ok with them because she’s overwhelmed with the potential this job offers, as well as the beautiful building itself. The rules: nobody can visit. She has to spend every nigh...
  • Matthew
    This has been, by far, my favorite Riley Sager book so far!While some of the plot ended up being familiar from other stories I have seen/read, that is pretty normal for most books. Throughout novels these days, there are lot of retellings of similar plots lines, it just depends on how you tell it. In the case of this particular thrilling and creepy plot twist, I was quite impressed.If I could sum up why this is a 5-star book in 1 sentence: I cou...
  • Susanne Strong
    3.25 Stars. Apartment Sitting Gone Wrong. Very Very Wrong. Imagine, being given the opportunity to apartment sit, AND be paid for it. $4k a month for 3 months. In Manhattan. You heard that right! That’s $12k for 3 months. Sounds like a dream right? Except there’s a catch. Of course there is. There are rules. No guests. No leaving the apartment overnight. No taking photos of the place OR of you and posting them online. Oh and of course, the B...

    Three lalalaa here comes unpopular review alarm, I can hear the ominous soundtrack in my head like Jaws’s approaching, nanana, disappointing, I got so excited, cleared my night to date with this book, but I didn’t like what I got at the end and my husband laughs at me when he is binge watching Stranger Things( at least one of us is happy) stars!!! Oh boy, I usually love Riley Sager’s writing style. I enjoyed “ Final Girls” and literally...

    I know...I am really late to the party on this one. Better late than never right?! What in the actual hell is going on at The Bartholomew? For the next 3 months this is home.........12A...home, hell, you decide!Seriously, people there is some crazy stuff going on here. This was my second book by Sager (Final Girls is here begging to be read) and he is a master of atmospheric writing. Last time he took me to camp but this time we were on a dream t...
  • Paromjit
    Riley Sager writes a wonderfully atmospheric, well plotted, compulsive chiller of a thriller with overtones of horror. Jules Larsen's life is a desperate mess, she no longer has a job or a home, is in dire financial straits and heartbroken after the end of a relationship. So when she is offered the opportunity to become an apartment sitter at the exclusive and gothic Bartholomew, the home of the rich and famous in Manhattan, she grabs it. So ther...
  • Chelsea (chelseadolling reads)
    3.5 stars I think. This was a pretty average thriller for the majority of the book, but the last little bit was REALLY good. Wasn't my favorite of Sager's thrillers but it definitely threw me for a loop!

    Damn! I didn’t see that coming!! Happy Reading! Mel 🖤🐶🐺🐾
  • Mackenzie - PhDiva Books
    Riley Sager continues to dominate the thriller genre with each new book, and this one is certainly no exception!!! I am bubbling with excitement over this sinister and twisty read—he is a master of suspense!!!I read Lock Every Door in a single day—a very RARE occurrence for me. Another incredible thriller that I promise you will be a best seller this summer. It should be on EVERY must-read summer thriller list, in my opinion--it is THAT good....
  • Paulette
    I read this book in one sitting – I could not put it down. Solid 5 stars for meI have wanted to read this book for so long, it took ages for it to be released here in Australia and I knew I was going to devour it in one sitting. What a ride it is brilliant.I loved Final Girls, Thriller/Horror novel. His second book not so much, it was a little repetitive and some story lines didn’t go anywhere, I had high expectations going into this one and ...
  • Gabby
    Holy shit this book was intense and creepy. This is my third time reading a thriller from Riley Sager, and wow this book is great, it might be my new favorite? Idk I’ll have to think about it more because I absolutely LOVED The Last Time I Lied, I liked Final Girls but not as much as these other two. This story follows this girl Jules who is desperate for a job when she stumbles upon this too good to be true opportunity to live in this glamorou...

    Alright, Riley Sager you won me back in your good graces. Back in 2017, Mr. Sager jumped right onto the scene with his first thriller Final Girls blowing up the charts and becoming an international bestseller. I was sold after reading Final Girls and knew that Riley Sager was going to become a household name for thriller readers. Sadly, Sager's second book The Last Time I Lied fell flat for me, and left me thinking, "Will Riley Sager become a one...
