One by One


This is the second book I have read by Ruth Ware, and I am confident I have found one of my favorite authors!  One by One starts with a group of colleagues who have set out on a week-long skiing trip.  After an avalanche and a string of murders, they are trapped with the realization that one of them is a murderer.  This was a great, quick read!  Look for it to hit the shelves in September.

I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The End of October

I recently read The End of October.  I was excited to read this newly released book about a pandemic quickly sweeping the globe.  With everything going on, I expected this to be a fantastic book.  Sadly, this was not the case.  While the store had a good structure, I felt that the plot was rushed, and I was left with a lot of unanswered questions. There were parts of the book where I felt hopeful that the story would pick up, but then it would jump to another part of the story, and I was right back where I started. This story had a lot of potential but sadly fell short. 

Home Before Dark by Riley Sager


Home Before Dark by Riley Sager did not disappoint.  I was a fan of his last book, Lock Every Door, and was excited to dive into this read. 

 

Maggie Holt has always lived in the shadow of her dad’s book, House of Horrors. This book tells the story of her family living in a haunted house for less than a month when she was just five years old. The novel tells of the horrors they witnessed and how they had to flee in the middle of the night, afraid for their lives.  Now, as an adult, Maggie has inherited the haunted house and is determined to find out the truth behind this story that has marked her life. 

 

This book is a page-turner and will keep you reading until the very end. Great read!  Shop local!  Consider buying this book from www.fiction-addiction.com or your local bookstore.

The Shadows by Alex North

I received a chapter to review of The Shadows in exchange for an honest review.  This book already has me hooked in the first chapter, and I cannot wait to get the whole book!  It is a thrilling read set to hit shelves in July.  Chapter 1 already had a lot of blood and gore, so if that is your thing, then check out this book!

Shop Local!  Consider buying  from https://www.fiction-addiction.com/ or your local bookstore.

What You Wish For


After reading Things You Save In A Fire, I had high expectations for this book by the same author, and she did not disappoint.  What You Wish For by Katherine Center is a great read! Sam is a librarian in a coastal city in Texas.  She moved there to start fresh and get over a guy she had a crush on at her former school.  After a few years of living there and falling in love with the school and people she works with, she finds out that her old crush is coming to her new school and is about to shake things up as principal.

This book is a great, feel-good story.  If you liked Katherine Center's other novels, you will not be disappointed by this one! Look for it to hit shelves on July 14, 2020.

Shop local and consider purchasing this book from Fiction Addiction in Greenville!  You can also order it right here and they will get credit https://bookshop.org/books/what-you-wish-for-9781250219367/9781250219367.

Oona Out of Order


Oona Out of Order by Margarita Montimore is a fantastic, fun read.  Oona starts out an 18-year-old girl about to turn 19 on New Years Day in the early 1980s.  As the clock strikes midnight, Onna finds herself in 2015 in her 51-year-old self.  Oona then lives her life as a 19/51-year-old until the clock strikes midnight at the end of the year and then....

 Onna struggles to fit the pieces of her life together as she lives her life out of chronological order.  This was a great read and an awesome escape from the current quarantine situation.

I purchased this book from my local bookstore, Fiction Addiction.  They were great and offered contactless curbside pickup.  During this time of uncertainty, shopping local is one great way you can help out the community.
