Okay so everyone knows about Gone Girl and the Girl on the Train. Yawn.
Liked them but want something different? And perhaps even better? (Yup, that’s right, I said better. I didn’t particularly love either – they were just okay)
- The Widow – Fiona Barton. Will leave you on the edge of your seat wondering what her role was and what she knew.
- What she Knew – Gilly MacMillan. How appropriate as the second book here. I kept leaving my passover seder this year to go secretly read this in our bedroom. Yah. That happened. I think the entire table thought I was having stomach problems. Anyway, book about a child abduction. It will keep you from doing just about anything else, trust me.
- Thirteen reasons why – Jay Asher. Yes, this has gotten a lot of press, but it’s a great book regardless.
- With Malice – Eileen Cook – psychological thriller that was very satisfying. If you’re interested both in the YA variety and in mysteries, this one is a great one to pick up.
- Good as Gone, Amy Gentry – another about a child abduction (I guess I have a theme right now) and a child who returns after 20 years. But the parents aren’t 100% sure she’s actually their daughter. So if she isn’t, why has she returned?
