One of my goals this summer was to read as many books as possible. I imagined long beach days and lazy evenings outside getting lost in the pages, discovering new authors along the way. Unfortunately, things didn’t go quite as planned and I finished a grand total of three. So now I’m looking towards fall and adding new books to my Kindle. Below I’m sharing some of my favorite books I read this year, as well as the next two books on my reading list.
How To Murder Your Life
Full disclosure, this is the only non-thriller on this list. If you’re interested in fashion publishing, there’s plenty of name-dropping so you feel like you’re getting a little bit of an insiders view of that world, but the main premise, of course, is the vicious cycle of addiction. The author offers an interesting and well-written perspective, and while it feels almost repetitive at times, it is a memoir about addiction that feels different from others out there in its honesty.
Best Day Ever
The cover won me over, but the story kept me interested. It was a little predictable, but it’s still a really fun, quick thriller that will keep your attention from start to finish.
All The Missing Girls
This one I read several months ago and I still think about from time to time. It’s uniquely written — the story is told in reverse, and the twists and turns will keep you guessing until the end.
Luckiest Girl Alive
If it’s not obvious yet, I love a good suspenseful thriller, and this one does not disappoint. It’s a little dark, remarkably captivating, and will stay with you long after you finish.
I just finished this one and I couldn’t put it down. I tend to read at night, and there were mornings I woke up trying to remember what movie or show I’d watched the night before that was so good, only to quickly remember I’d been reading this book. It keeps you on your toes and would make a great read with Halloween around the corner.
I just downloaded this book and I’m excited to dive in. Early reviews are calling it a dark edgy psychological thriller, which is frankly right up my alley.
The Wife Between Us
Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen
I also downloaded this because I always have trouble deciding what to read next and it sounds clever and full of twists and turns. I’ll be sure to follow-up and let you know if it lives up to the expectations!
