I Rank Ruth Ware’s Books

Ruth Ware is another one of my auto-buy authors. The It Girl released on July 12th so today I rank all of Ruth Ware’s books! Tell me in the comments your favorite Ruth Ware book.

The Woman in Cabin 10 5/5 ⭐️

Why did I want to read this book?

I won The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware in a Goodreads giveaway. I was super excited when I found out because the synopsis sounds so intriguing! I took a break from my typical fantasy reads and dived in; I was not disappointed.

My synopsis:

Lo Blacklock, and inspiring travel writer, is invited on the maiden voyage of a high-end cruise. It is all glitz and glam until she witnesses another woman being thrown overboard; however, when she reports the incident, all passengers and crew are accounted for. So is she crazy or did she really witness a murder?


The cover art is gorgeous! The rain looks realistic, and it’s textured!  I related so much to the main character, Lo Blacklock, because I suffer from insomnia sometimes too. I actually stayed up late two nights in a row reading this book because I could not fall asleep. So I really really connected to Lo’s struggle throughout the story. I usually do not read thrillers or mysteries because I find the endings obvious or disappointing, but I did not see the plot twisting coming in The Woman in Cabin 10.


I recommend this to book to anyone who likes thrillers or mysteries, or if you just want a change from the typical genre you read. If you are really daring, take this book on your next cruise vacation.

The Lying Game 5/5 ⭐️

This one is Pretty Little Liars but for grownups.

In a Dark, Dark Wood 4/5 ⭐️

I love Ruth Ware’s books! I’ve now got my coworker reading all of Ruth’s books. I enjoyed In a Dark, Dark Wood more than The Turn of a Key because the inclusion of more characters made the store interesting and fast paced. I could totally relate to having to distance myself from a toxic friendship. This was such a great thriller I couldn’t put down. Ruth is definitely an auto-buy author!

The Turn of the Key 4/5 ⭐️

In The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware, Rowan takes on a new job as a nanny, and a lot of creepy things start happening in her new home. Then when one of the kids ends up dead, Rowan is the first suspect. Follow along as she pleads her case to her attorney. I enjoyed this book so much! It is the perfect read for fall! The format of Rowan writing to her attorney really brought the story to life. I loved the secret garden in the story. That part deserves its own books. The suspense built up perfectly, and I didn’t see the plot twist at the end coming. I gave this thriller 4/5 ⭐️s.

One by One 4/5 ⭐️

I’m obsessed with this trend of thrillers set in snow storms. Don’t stop.

The It Girl 3/5 ⭐️

Did Ruth Ware just construct the perfect murder? This book was just meh. Not my favorite Ruth book.

The Death of Mrs. Westaway 3/5 ⭐️

I read this one in December 2019 but never wrote a review. A three out of five stars for me means it was a solid book, but it didn’t stand out.
