I’m a little behind on my reading so these aren’t all new books. It was hard to choose but was a lot of fun remembering how much I enjoyed each of these as I went through them. Hope you find something you’ll enjoy too!
The Marsh King’s Daughter by Karen Dionne
This thriller kept me on the edge of my seat. The unusual main character, the outdoor setting in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and the drama of wondering who will catch the Marsh King made this a great, compelling read.
Glass Houses by Louise Penny
Chief Inspector Gamache, and all the eccentric characters of Three Pines do not disappoint in this creepy, dark mystery that has many more layers than at first it seems.
The Dry by Jane Harper
A stunning debut novel, with tension and bridled energy at every turn. Looks like small Australian towns come with big secrets.
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
I guess this book is considered fantasy, but it seemed real to me as I was reading it! An extraordinary tale of superstition, tradition, family and magic that takes place in the long-lasting winter of the Russian wilderness. I can hardly wait to read the next book, The Girl in the Tower, just recently released.
Home by Harlan Coben
Book #11 in the Myron Bolitar series, released almost six years after its predecessor, brings back the characters we love- Myron, Win, Esperanza and Big Cindy. A decade older and a little wiser (debatable), they take on the task of finding Win’s cousin who has been missing for 10 years. A satisfying but dark mystery about friends, family and coming home.
Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple
Eleanor Flood’s life is a complete mess, but she has decided today will be different. And she has no idea how right she is! A hilarious story with a main character you can’t help but love and an ending that makes it all worthwhile.
The Golden Hour by T. Greenwood
I somehow thought T. Greenwood was a new author, but now I am wondering why I haven’t read her other eight books?! A beautifully written story of a young mother struggling with her marriage, her career, and her future–all because of the lies of her past.
The Dark Lake by Sarah Bailey
A debut novel that thankfully is the beginning of the Gemma Woodstock series, The Dark Lake tells of teenage jealousy, hurt and secrets that will resurface until they are brought to light and put to rest.
The Trespasser by Tana French
It seems that every Tana French book is better than the last, and this is no exception. The book solves a murder, but more importantly digs into the deeply-rooted culture of the Dublin Murder Squad, with it’s egos, grudges, deceptions as well as its loyalty and commitment to protect and serve.
Still Missing by Chevy Stevens
Spending a year as the captive of a psychopath will definitely change your life. This story looks into the mind of Annie O’Sullivan as she discusses the past with her therapist and struggles to put the pieces of her life back together. A creepy, psychological mystery that’s quick to read.
