Veronica's Favorites

Hello Every one, My name is Veronica Foley (Onsurez). Former Employee, now New Owner. 
Thank you for browsing and checking out my favorites. If you can't already tell,
I am primarily into Psychological Suspense Thrillers, Mystery, and Young Adult Novels.
Although I have tried to read some General and Romance Fiction.
My heart only desires to be put at the edge of my seat.
Trapped in another realm where I fear for the character's lives.

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.

Sharp Objects

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

It Ends with Us by: Colleen Hoover

I can see why this is a NY Times Bestselling Novel. It is truly devastating, tragic, traumatic, and a bit hopeful. This was not the first book of Colleen Hoover that I have read, and it certainly won't be my last. Coming from my own experience, I had to stop reading this several times mid chapter. While having a slight panic flashback sobbing, I was constantly shaking my head at Lily. Because I remember what it felt like as well, thinking "How could I be so stupid". In the time it took me to read this book - which was in one sitting, My Husband would come into the room and ask why I was crying. Not being able to explain was hard.. what could I say? A book made me cry. I am crying because of past trauma? Although my husband was super understanding when I told him I didn't know why I was crying.. "I just was".  When people say "Why won't they leave then, if they are getting abused." A person truly can not understand it, until they have been put in the same (or similar ) position themselves. And knowing that this novel is loosely based on her own Mother's story, made it all the more real. - Veronica

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.

Big Little Lies by: Liane Moriarty

Poetic Justice. That's it, my whole review just these two words... 

Kidding - but seriously. Beautiful Poetic Justice being served! I was lucky enough to read this before it was published for the masses. To say this was the book that made me love multiple POVs is an understatement. After I practically devoured this title, I patiently waited for her to publish more. The suspense and storylines are fantastic. This one in particular will forever be one of my favorites by her. The fact justice was served in the beginning was just the tip of this great ice berg of a novel. By the middle I was gaping so bad, and in the end I smiled for the women who had to endure this storyline.

The Good Daughter by: Karin Slaughter

Oof.. The beginning of this was tough to read. Research TWs before reading. Honestly, It is rare to find an author that has multiple titles that I enjoyed. This book was truly devastating, some of it was unexpected and Charlie truly was the "Good Daughter".

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.

Dark Places by: Gillian Flynn

Where do I even begin? This one is a little sad.. okay A LOT sad. One of the only survivors of her family massacre. Her brother being the "murderer".. or is he? After the horrific accident, Libby gave testimony that put her brother away and spent the next 25 years profitting off her family's tragic demise. When the cash is no longer coming in, she starts to "spiral" because getting things free was all she knew. Until a group contacts her about her family's murder, and confronts her about her Brother actually being innocent. With lots of twists and turns, this book is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Gillian Flynn is brilliant when it comes to writing. I have devoured every book that she has written.
