I'm a little jealous of someone who hasn't come across the series because it's just that good. I wish I could go back and read them all again for the first time.
I recommend The Last Guest to anyone who loves a good mystery. It's a fun story to pick apart and try to figure out who the murderer really is.
Dang paints compelling characters who perfectly capture that awkward stage between high school and adulthood when we are all just trying to figure out who we are. Set against the backdrop of a possible serial killer of course.
It actually reminded me slightly of American Psycho, the college years, as told by Patrick Bateman's female double.
The Last House on Needless Street is a crazy, spooky, twisted page turner that you don't want to miss.
ntry is really a breathtaking and heart-wrenching first account of the trials that undocumented immigrants face when they come to America.
If you are looking for an atmospheric, spooky horror tale that will keep you up long past your bedtime, this is it.
My Heart is a Chainsaw is a masterpiece and likely to be a valuable edition to any horror movie aficionado's bookshelf.
The Perfect Family is definitely a thriller for our times. It's a fast-paced page-turner, where the reader is guessing the whole time as to who is behind the attacks on the family home. Special thanks to Netgalley and Gallery Books for an advanced e-galley in exchange for my honest review. This one is out August 10. Get your copy!
Just One Look is a great tale of how longing for a better life and success can lead to jealously, obsession, and worse.
This one has got it all- mystery, intrigue, an amazing setting betrayal. And the list goes on.
in My Arms was a refreshing spin on the same old story of the women who don't quite fit in with the perfect PTA moms at school.
The Secret Lives of Trophy Wives is a fantastic beach read. It's a light enough read to keep one eye on the kids in the water while you read, but salacious enough that you'll keep turning the pages.
Dark Roads is a great read. It's got a great setting, and plenty of twists and turns you didn't see coming and a rich cast of characters. #darkroads #netgalley
You Will Remember Me is a great read, full of richly drawn characters who all kind of operate on the fringes of acceptable life (and that makes them so much more interesting than you or I!)
I recommend The Disappearing Act to fans of Steadman and suspense, along with people who like a bit of an insiders taste into the going ons of stardom and Hollywood.
I could see this story successful adapted to film. It definitely had a Hillbilly Elegy feel to it.
A Dark and Secret Place is a book that will be satisfying to every true crime podcast enthusiast, Dateline addict, or Hannibal fan.
I highly recommend Hour of the Witch to fans of Bohjahlian and lovers of historical fiction.
Janelle Brown, author of Pretty Things and Watch Me Disappear had the perfect testimonial for the book saying, "The Drowning Kind is satisfying on every level: Marvelously chilling, elegantly written, a true page-turner. I couldn’t wait to get to the end; I also wanted to savor every page. Jennifer McMahon is a master of mood.”
You Love Me is everything I wanted it to be. Joe isn't the same guy who used to stalk Beck through the windows of her NYC apartment. He's matured. I think he might not be as much of a psycho. Well, scratch that.
When Ambrosia arrives at her freshman year of college, she has a chip on her shoulder. Like the size of Antarctica.
The Project is a great read, you definitely won't regret picking this one up. Yes, it's technically YA, but it's one of the YA books with amazing crossover adult potential.
C.J. Tudor is a bit macabre and her books just feel different than your average thriller. Her books are a little bit gory, a little bit spooky, the tiniest bit shocking and super readable.
The Four Winds is a richly drawn work of historical fiction that transports the reader to that moment in history. Hannah does this in a way not many authors can master and it's breathtaking.
Really, if we had to choose just one main character in this book, it might not be Sadie or Beth (or even Leonora), but rather Raven Hall. Because people who have lived there, are somehow legit, obsessed with it.
Buckingham and Shepard have created some colorful characters that remind me a lot of the real-life (or were they?) shenanigans on Laguna Beach.
Jane is kind of an enigma. She comes from a troubled past, and she is clearly trying to improve her life.
In Pretty Little Wife, the reader gets a front row seat to the relentless interrogations and everything that Lila is up to in the days following her husbands, ahem, disappearance.
Yes, Leave the World Behind, is the crowning novel that fits in so well in 2020, it's a little scary.
The Last to See Her is a wild ride that is part mystery, part thriller, part romance, part story of betrayal and part sister story. Which sounds like it could be too much. But it's actually just the perfect amount.
What does an ivy do? It clings to wood or stone, hiding the ruins of what it feeds upon.
Two strangers swapping stories they would never tell most people they know. Strangers taking advantage of anonymity. Or so Selena thought.
Hoffman takes us all the way back to the 1600's where we meet Maria Owens, the matriarch of The Owen's Family featured in The Rules of Magic and the Practical Magic Series.
There is no arguing that Jodi Picoult is one of the greatest writers of our time. I mean, can you argue that?
Stories of missing people are so horrifying, but we are still able to hang on to the tiniest glimmer of hope that things could go back to the way they were before.
Mina Lee, the fictional star of The Last Story of Mina Lee. She is fictional, but feels so real I think I've seen her in a small swap meet shop sometime in my past. #netgalley #thelaststoryofminalee
I really enjoyed Three Perfect Liars. I totally identified with the characters and their struggles and enjoyed the well-place twists and turns.
Heaberlin has written some strong female characters who are running from something but still have strength to stand up for what is important no matter the cost, and no matter what anyone thinks.
I didn't just read this book, I fed on it and consumed it. Which sounds super disturbing. But it was so good.
It definitely brings You to mind, minus adorable Joe (is it unhealthy to think a serial killer is cute?).
