1. Rich People Problems
This book has been on my TBR list forever now! I’ve had it since it came out (like August) and it just kept getting pushed back on my reading to dos. So far it’s hilarious! Here and here are the first two of the series and the movie is bound to be good!
2. Code Name Verity
According to several of my former teachers, this is a must read! It’s about two girls who happen to be British spies. Their plane crashes in Nazi-occupied France and one of them, named ‘Verity’ is captured and forced to confess her plans or face a horrible execution.
3. Magpie Murders
This particular book has been on my Amazon wishlist for a good while now. It’s about a manuscript editor who reads the latest work from a troubled author and is convinced that there is another story of jealousy, greed, ambition and murder interwoven in this manuscript.
4. Final Girls
I’ve heard nothing but RAVE reviews for this one so I can’t wait to finally read it. This is all about the ‘final girls’ sole survivors of horror-movie type massacres.
5. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
This is going to be a movie produced by Reese Witherspoon! She has the best tastes in books, so this is a must read. Eleanor Oliphant is not exactly a social butterfly; she lives a totally isolated life which is fine for her. Until she meets Raymond and together they help Sammy, the three become unusual friends and Eleanor learns to open her heart.
6. Everything I Never Told You
How did I not hear about this before?! This book seems to be right up my alley. This is all about a Chinese-American family called the Lees and their favorite daughter, Lydia, who’s body is found the local lake. The balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together tumbles into chaos, forcing them to confront the long-kept secrets that have been slowly pulling them apart
7. Little Fires Everywhere
From the same author who wrote ‘Everything I Never Told You’ comes this tale of the picture perfect Richardson family and the mother-daughter duo that rents a house from them and turns their world upside down.
8. Glass Houses
When a mysterious figure appears in Three Pines one cold November day, the villagers are at first curious, then wary. Through rain and sleet, the figure stands unmoving, staring ahead. But when the figure vanishes overnight and a body is discovered, it falls to Armand Gamache to discover if a debt has been paid or levied.
9. The Woman in the Window
This book is perfect for readers of ‘Gone Girl’, ‘The Girl on the Train’ and ‘The Woman in Cabin 10’-it’s all about Anna Fox a NYC recluse and the family that moves into the house across the street. Anna sees something she shouldn’t, but was it real? This was the first book added to my to be read list!
10. Without Merit
The Voss family is anything but normal. Merit, one of the daughters, collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. After she learns that the boy she loves is unavailable, Merit retreats deeper into herself. When she learns a terrible secret, Merit decides to shatter the family illusion.
11. Turtles All The Way Down
Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her best friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. Aza is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
12. One Of Us is Lying
Pretty Little Liars meets The Breakfast Club- in this story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. On Monday, Simon died and on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?
