Review: For Your Own Good

For Your Own Good by Samantha Downing

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Genre: Thriller


Teddy Crutcher has won Teacher of the Year at the prestigious Belmont Academy, home to the best and brightest.

He says his wife couldn’t be more proud—though no one has seen her in a while.

Teddy really can’t be bothered with a few mysterious deaths on campus that’re looking more and more like murder or the student digging a little too deep into Teddy’s personal life. His main focus is pushing these kids to their full academic potential.

All he wants is for his colleagues—and the endlessly meddlesome parents—to stay out of his way. If not, well, they’ll get what they deserve.

It’s really too bad that sometimes excellence can come at such a high cost


Stages of me reading this book:

🥱 starting out a little slow

😯 ok picking up a little bit

😮 oh my! wow!

😵 what in the world is happening!

🙈 well I didn’t see that coming!


So as you can see this one was a roller coaster. I got this on a whim from the library to add to my latest obsession with thrillers. The beginning was meh and then it was twist and turn and twist and turn. It’s a book where you say I’ll just read to the next chapter and stop over and over until you finish the book in one day! So many secrets, so many lies and unlikable characters but so so good! Go in blind like I did. So glad the synopsis is vague too!
