This book is definitely one of my favorites so far this year and I definitely give this one 5⭐. I was hooked from the first page to last. I love the way it was written in a podcast form in some the chapters and felt it was refreshing to read. The story was so good with so many great twists and turns that kept me wanting to read it faster and faster so I could find out all the answers. I also enjoyed the characters and really connected with them and the subject matter. This book does deal with rape so just a heads up but the author wrote it beautifully. This is a must read if you are looking for a suspense/thriller! This book will be published August 4th. Thank you to @stmartinspress and @netgalley for the ARC.
Synopsis: After her true-crime podcast became an overnight sensation and set an innocent man free, Rachel Krall has become a household name—and the last hope for people seeking justice. But she’s used to being recognized for her voice, not her face. Which makes it all the more unsettling whenshe finds a note on her car windshield, addressed to her, begging for help. The new season of Rachel’s podcast has brought her to a small town being torn apart by a devastating rape trial. A local golden boy, a swimmer destined for Olympic greatness, has been accused of raping the beloved granddaughter of the police chief. Under pressure to make Season 3 a success, Rachel throws herself into her investigation—but the mysterious letters keep coming. Someone is following her, and she won’t stop until Rachel finds out what happened to her sister twenty-five years ago. Officially, Jenny Stills tragically drowned, but the letters insist she was murdered—and when Rachel starts asking questions, nobody in town wants to answer. The past and present start to collide as Rachel uncovers startling connections between the two cases—and a revelation that will change the course of the trial and the lives of everyone involved.
While being at home due to COVID, I found my high school book of The Catcher in the Rye while doing some spring cleaning today. I fell in love with this book when I read it for the first time so thinking maybe a should read it again. I think I may have been one of the very few who loved this book high school. I still love it to this day. I don’t do a lot of rereading (except for HP) but I may have to reread this one again soon. I’m sure I will probably get more out of it and find new things in the story that I missed the first time. . What book have you reread because you enjoyed it so much?
I absolutely loved this book! I loved the characters, the chemistry and the wittiness! I couldn’t finish it fast enough and at the same time I didn’t want it to end!

This book was just published June 23rd and is the perfect go to summer rom com! You will not regret reading this one and I promiss it will put a smile on your face! I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Olivia has zero interest in dating a politician, but when a cake arrives at her office with the cutest message, she can’t resist—it is chocolate cake, after all.

But when they finally go public, the intense media scrutiny means people are now digging up her rocky past and criticizing her job, even her suitability as a trophy girlfriend. Olivia knows what she has with Max is something special, but is it strong enough to survive the heat of the spotlight?
Megan Miranda has some of my favorite thrillers to read during summer time. The characters are relatable and the stories always have so many great twist and turns! Thankfully I got into her books a little later than others so now I have a few more books of her that I haven’t read yet but are on my tbr list. She also has a new thriller called The Girl from Widow Hills which I read earlier this and will be published June 23 and it’s a must read! You seriously can’t go wrong with any of her books! So far my favorite of hers in The Last House Guest, it’s the perfect summer suspense book.
Finished this book in the wee hours of the night last night. This has got to be the scariest Stephen King book I’ve read so far. The last quarter of the book had me extremely frightened and arguing with the characters actions. 😂 I really liked the characters, especially Jud. He was my favorite in this story. I do think the Pet Sematary movie made in the 80s did a great job sticking to the book. If you want a great horror/thriller book to read than read this one! Warning you may get scared reading this in the dark but that’s part of the thrill. It’s not as long as some of his other novels and it’s also fast paced. I give this book 5⭐️.
Synopsis: When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job and moves his family to the idyllic rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Despite Ludlow’s tranquility, an undercurrent of danger exists here. Those trucks on the road outside the Creed’s beautiful old home travel by just a little too quickly, for one thing…as is evidenced by the makeshift graveyard in the nearby woods where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. Then there are the warnings to Louis both real and from the depths of his nightmares that he should not venture beyond the borders of this little graveyard where another burial ground lures with seductive promises and ungodly temptations. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there—one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. As Louis is about to discover for himself sometimes , dead is better…
