The Death of Mrs. Westaway
By: Ruth Ware
Truly the work of a great novelist. Dramatic, Suspenseful, Edgy, and Clever. I have not been able to pick up a book and just read for a few months - which is very unusual for me- But this book put me on edge, and I did NOT want to put it down. I am a new Fan of Ruth Ware.
by Gillian Flynn
I would never have guessed this was a debut novel. Writing like a true novelist, it was disturbingly crafty and witty. After reading this, it made me want to read it again..and honestly I will. You don't know dysfunction until you read this.
The Good Girl
by: Mary Kubica
Intriguing with a plot twist. The ending was definitely the cherry on top, and goes to show that you can never really judge a book by it's cover. You don't really know a family until disaster hits and you don't always know a person like you thought. Veronica
The Couple Next Door
by: Shari Lapena
You will want to read this in one sitting. It is relentless and heart-wrenching. This book will make you think you know the ending. But of course you don't, because who would expect that? I certainly didn't. Another well crafted unexpected debut novel.
When the Wind Blows
by: James Patterson
This book made me enjoy reading again. It was the very first James Patterson novel that I devoured, and I quickly became a huge fan. His writing style is so calming to read, and he really knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat.
The Great Gatsby
by: F. Scott Fitzgerald
I was excited when we read this novel in class. It really gave me a broadened perspective on my future, and what lies ahead. With a lot of hidden symbolism on what it meant to live "The American Dream", or to live in poverty ("The Valley of Ashes"). This novel is one of my absolute favorites.
The Maze Runner Series
by James Dashner
What if you found out you were immune to any kind of sickness in the world, even the deadliest one and woke up with no memory of your life, past or present? Would you go through all the trials to save yourself and the human race? Remember "wicked is good". Veronica
