I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara: October 5th, 2018
Okay, so we’re kicking off our read-along with a true crime thriller about the investigation of the Golden State Killer (also known as EAR/ONS: East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker.) This case has spanned decades and the killer was finally caught earlier this year through familial DNA. Sadly the author, Michelle McNamara, passed away two years ago before she got to see the killer brought to justice. I am high key excited for this book.
The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware: October 12th, 2018
I enjoyed In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 despite its polarizing reviews, but I have heard great things about this one. I think Ruth Ware is great at building these Agatha Christie-esque mysteries where there are a group of suspects trapped in one place and we have to figure out whodunnit. I actually have NO idea if this book will be set up that same way, but that’s how her previous books (that I’ve read) are structured. I have high hopes for this one!
If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio: October 19th, 2018
This book has such high ratings and the premise sounds the most intriguing to me: A man who was formerly part of a Shakespearean acting troupe is released from jail and bears his confession to a detective about the dark, twisted things that went on in the theater.
The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager: October 26th, 2018
I legit don’t even know what this is about because I’ve been avoiding reading the synopsis! (I tend to do this with mysteries/thrillers) But I am probably one of the few people who liked Final Girls lmao. I mean, it wasn’t my favorite by any means, but I still enjoyed reading it. Again, I’ve heard polarizing things about this book, but I’m really excited to dive back into another Riley Sager book!
That’s it! I’d love to hear what you’re planning to read this month. I know it’s sometimes hard to plan a TBR especially if you’re a mood reader. I am definitely a mood reader, too, but so far I’ve been loving keeping up with my TBR each month 🙂 I hope you have a great week and continue to read lots of good books! ❤
