This novel has been on just about every must-read list we’ve come across & now we’ve added it to yet another. It tells the story of a girl who has survived in a North Carolina marsh on her own for years, the rumors throughout town that turn her into something else entirely (including murderer), and her new way of life after two young townsmen make her feel beautiful. Make sure you pick this one up soon because Reese Witherspoon is producing the upcoming feature film!
Released in 2018, this popular memoir has been on the top of the charts for over a year. Tara was born in the mountains as part of a survivalist family who lived in the woods, away from society. She decided she wanted a different life than the one she was born into, and at seventeen she entered a classroom for the first time. She went on to attend Harvard & earned a PhD from Cambridge University. We can’t wait to learn more about her journey & be inspired by the realization that it’s never too late to learn anything.
The new series by debut crime novelist Lisa Gray tells the story of Jessica Shaw, a private investigator. The story starts off with the investigation of a missing three-year-old girl that went cold twenty-five years ago, and Jessica soon discovers after seeing a photo that the little girl is her. Thin Air is still on the Amazon charts after its debut in May. And if you love it? You’re in luck because the second book in the series, Bad Memory, will be released on October 24th, 2019.
Stephen King, the author of one of our favorite thrilling books-turned-movies The Shining, is back with another eery novel. It tells the story of Luke, a young boy who is taken by intruders after they murder his parents. When he wakes up in a room at The Institute, he discovers that he’s one of many children there with a special, mutant-like (X-Men reference), talent, and they are all trapped. Just reading the synopsis alone, we have so many questions & look forward to figuring it all out alongside Luke & the other kids.
Another memoir, The Glass Castle gives a deep look into a dysfunctional family. The writer’s father is loving & inspiring to his children, until he drinks & becomes a different person, and her mother is not interested in raising a family. Even so, the writer & her siblings take care of themselves & move to New York, only to have their parents follow them loyally. We’ve heard great things & if you’re short on reading time, the memoir was adapted into a feature film starring Brie Larson, Naomi Watts & Woody Harrelson.
Ruth Ware is a master of suspense & this novel is no different. It tells the story of a writer who is invited on a weekend getaway in the countryside by an old friend she hasn’t seen in years. When she wakes up in a hospital room a couple of days later with little recollection of what happened apart from an eery feeling that someone is dead, she is determined to find out exactly what happened out there in the woods. Leave it to fellow book lover, Reese Witherspoon – she is adapting the novel into a movie!
