Review: The Date by Louise Jensen is a psychological thriller. This novel follows Ali, who wakes up battered and bruised after a blind date she doesn’t remember from the prior night. She’s been recently separated from her husband, Matt, and was reluctant to go on the blind date with the man she’s been talking to online, but her friends convinced her to go. But now that she has a head injury and is covered in blood, she must figured out the night before. I have mixed feelings about this book. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. It took me a while to get into reading this one and only the last quarter of the book was actually interesting to read. The main character, Ali, annoyed me a bit with her decisions, but her condition of having facial blindness did make the story unique and more intriguing to read. I would recommend checking this out if you like reading psychological thrillers. The book releases on Thursday 6/21.
