<— Oooooooh eeeerieeee!!! I love the sound of this one and I’m excited that the author is this week’s newsletter sponsor ’cause not only has he sent over the blurb, but a short and creepy excerpt that has me wanting more. She’s in college and wakes up one morning and everything is just a bit… off. Is it a psych-thriller? Is it a time travel thriller? Is it horror? What is going on??!!! YES!!! 😀 I love when a blurb jolts me like that! P.S. It’s super-bargain priced today AND it’s in KU!!
This is an “Amazon First Reads” that I chose recently (in fact, it only officially comes out in January, but I think Prime members can buy it now), and I was thrilled by the feedback I was getting on it, ’cause it sounded right up my psych-thriller/mystery alley!! P.S. It’s actually still available to be “purchased” for free, for Prime members if you haven’t selected one yet, this month.
Mona: Hey Maryse, have you chosen your Amazon Prime First Reads for December? I picked Unspeakable Things by Jess Lourey. I was up until 1:30am reading it, fell asleep but woke back up about 3:30am thinking about the book so I picked it back up and finished it at 6:30am.
Behind Her Eyes: A Suspenseful Psychological Thriller <— OMG OMG OMG!! I AM DYING to read this one BIG TIME!! YAY to my sister for telling me (and us) about it, it’s so right up my domestic/marital strife/the other woman thriller alley. She’s the other woman… but it appears to go WAY deeper than that. 😀
<— Holy moly… look what Stephen King says about the book (his quote is on the cover). And better yet… lookit what my SISTER says (she has sold me on this one for sure):
<— YA HIGH-SCHOOL PSYCH-THRILLER SERIES ALERT (a la “Breakfast Club” but so much more)!!! Oooooh EM GEEEEE!!! I just found out about this ’cause Kat LOVED book #1 and this sounds like so much creepy fun!!! 🙂 AND!!! The actual sequel to book #1 (the 3rd book listed below) is up for preorder and coming out in just a few weeks!!
P.S. I’m not really sure that book #2 is part of this series, ’cause from reviews – it’s a standalone – but the title, and cover and the fact that it’s also a YA psych-thriller/murder mystery makes me feel like putting it in here, anyway. 😉
Frayed <— GAH!! I just read an amazing book that I was SO into from start to finish. This was a debut novel? GET. OUT. I can’t even believe it. FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. R. Renee came to us screaming “YOU” vibes and boy was she right!!!! But it’s not at ALL the same story. I promise. Though that feel is JUST right.
AND what’s best of all? We BUDDY READ it!!! Group read of freak-outs & reactions!! LOL!
R. Renee: Guys!! This is Layne’s debut psych thriller. Some of you know her from the GR PFM challenge group. I started it this morning and I can’t put it down!! I went in blind so I have no idea what’s coming but at 16% it’s giving me serious YOU vibes!
