Anyway, let’s get to it!

Books I Want to Read…

Final Girls – Riley Sager

After reading Sager’s book The Last Time I Lied, I knew I wanted to read more of his books, and this one went straight onto my TBR. It’s premise is basically that there are a group of girls who managed to survive different murder massacres or sprees. But now some of these “final girls” are being killed and two final girls end up having to band together to get to the bottom of it. So yeah, this mystery/thriller sounds really interesting and I’m curious to see how I’ll like it compared to the first book of his that I’ve read.

A Study in Scarlet Women – Sherry Thomas

I like a lot of books that are “Sherlock Holmes” based. This one stars a female “Sherlock,” who is a well-to-do lady in society, but ends up being a pariah and then when a group of murders occur and people start pointing their fingers at her and her father, well…she has to solve the case to clear her family’s name. I think this book sounds like it could be really good. Plus, it’s historical fiction, which is a bonus for me, since I do love historical fictions. Add in some murder and it’s a party!

And Then There Were None – Agatha Christie

I’ve seen theatrical renditions of this book, but I haven’t yet read it. Of course, I love pretty much anything by Christie. Her whodunnits are always so interesting, fun, and really make you think. This one is one of her stand-alone mysteries about a group of people called to an isolated house and then each one start turning up dead. All of the guests have a supposed “wicked” past and secrets that they’re being blackmailed to keep secret. There’s a lot of intrigue involved, so I’m interested to see how it plays out in the book versus what I’ve seen on a screen.

A Curious Beginning – Deanna Raybourn

Another historical fiction! This one features a young, scientifically minded woman who now has the freedom to travel as she always wished. She ends up stopping an attempted abduction with the help of a German baron who later winds up dead…and now she needs to solve the case of his murder…I’ve heard a lot about this series. I think there’s a lot of hype surrounding it. It looks like it could be really good, so I’m looking forward to eventually reading it! And who knows, if I like it then I have a whole new series to enjoy.

The Shark – Mary Burton

This book features another woman who needs to solve a crime. In this case, the main character was abducted when she was a teen and drugged and eventually wakes up on the side of the road. She has no memory of what happened to her. But with a new teenage murder that brings back flashes of her own past, she believes this could potentially be the work of the same person. Teaming up with an old-flame, will they solve the crime and catch the killer? I mean, I’m down to see where this goes!
