Dead Letters by Caite Dolan-Leach
The mystery of this book was so clever and well done. Zelda dies and her twin sister Ava returns home from Paris. Murder is suspected, but Ava believes that Zelda has faked her own death and created a scavenger hunt for Ava to figure out the mystery. This book almost reads as a puzzle itself.
What I loved most about this book is the use of the alphabet, which took me until the second to last chapter to notice! (I most certainly would NOT make a great detective.) This book really inspired me to read more mysteries and thrillers!
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
This book made me want to become a book blogger. That ending!! I couldn’t believe it. This novel literally made my mouth fly open! I’ve recommended it to every reader I know in person, and I just knew that I needed to talk about it. So I started my blog. And the rest is history!
Big Little Lies was so unique in its characters and writing style that it is definitely one of my favorite reads of the year. I jumped a little late on the bandwagon, but I’m just so happy that I eventually checked it out!
Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
I still think about this book and how it made me feel. It’s about two girls who grow up with a distant and cold mother, only to find out when they’re adults and caring for her that the person she is now is because of the tragedies she faced while growing up in Communist Russia. Everything they thought they knew about their mother changes, and they see now that she gave them as much love as she could have.
This seriously made me appreciate my own relationship with my mother, making me realize how important she is to me and all the things she has done for me. I quite literally cried by the end of this novel. How much more warm and fuzzy can I get??
Best Day Ever by Kaira Rouda
I’m not sure if this is supposed to be a book I’ve read, but I wanted to include this book in my list. I absolutely LOVE this cover! I’ve been looking forward to reading this book and, now that it’s out, I’m on the waiting list for it at the library. It looks like such a creepy read, which is perfect for Fall and October!
The perfect suburban couple takes a weekend vacation to their lake house, where they start to develop doubts about one another and question how much they really know each other. In all seriousness, how much do you know about the people in your own life?
World War Z by Max Brooks
What has more action than zombies?? This book is different from what you would imagine. It’s more like a retelling of the war against zombies through the eyes of witnesses who saw it happen. It’s kind of like an anthology or history book based on fictional events. Regardless, I could NOT stop reading this book!
Being a horror fan, zombies just creep me out to begin with. This book didn’t disappoint! Each chapter was the story of a different witness during the war, so I always got a fresh perspective of what exactly happened.
I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon
This book doesn’t come out until March 2018, but I just can’t wait to get my hands on it! I’ve been obsessed with the story of the Romanovs since my childhood. History has always fascinated me, and their story is one of sadness and tragedy.
Lawhon’s novel focuses on the tale of Anna Anderson, a woman who claimed for most of her life to be the grand duchess Anastasia Romanov. Anastasia supposedly perished with the rest of her family in the Russian Revolution. A small part of me wants to believe this conspiracy theory, since then at least one Romanov child would have gotten a happy ending.
