What I finished reading:

I read three of Lisa Gardner’s books in the past and gave them 3, 4 and 5 stars respectively so I’ll just keep you in suspense a little longer about how much I liked this one. It can definitely be read as a standalone, I’ll tell you that much ;-).

Never Tell by Lisa Gardner

What I’m reading now:

I only read a few pages of this one so can’t really comment on it yet but so far so good. I hear a lot of praise about it and read a very positive review by Ludwig’s Thrillers last weekend so I have high hopes!

The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths

What I’ll (probably) read soon:

When I came across this novel on Twitter and looked up the synopsis on Amazon I definitely wanted to add it to my readlist. It’s published in May in case you’re interested.

The Furies by Katie Lowe

The Furies def

You’d kill to be one of them.

1998. A sixteen-year-old girl is found dead on school property, dressed in white and posed on a swing. No known cause of death.

Four girls know what happened.

And until now they’ve kept their silence.

Violet is returning home, back to the sleepy coastal town which holds so many memories.

In 1998, after a tragic accident claimed the lives of her father and sister, she joins Elm Hollow Academy, a private girls’ school with an unpleasant history of 17th century witch trials.

There she is drawn to Robin, Grace, Alex and their charismatic teacher, Annabel; she is invited to join them in their advanced study group.

There they learn about art, literature and the grisly history of the school. Though Annabel claims her classes aren’t related to ancient rites and rituals, she warns them off the topic, describing it as little more than mythology. However, the more the girls learn, the more they start to believe that magic is real, and that together they can harness it.

But when the body of a former member of the society is found on campus nine months after the she disappeared, fingers are pointed at those closest to her. Leading Violet to wonder whether she can trust her friends, teachers, or even herself.

  1. I can’t wait to read Never Tell; I’m about to read the book that comes before it and then I will have read all of Lisa Gardner’s books (I’m not sure how I got behind on the series since I’ve owned book 9 in that series since publication day, lol). I’ll be looking for your thoughts on it!! Happy Wednesday! 🙂

  2. Hope you are having a great time with your books! I’m currently in a dilemma between two incredible books – The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley and The Devil’s Dice by Roz Watkins. Could you help me decide make up my mind? I’d be so grateful, thanks! xx
