Book Review: Have You Seen Me? by Alexandrea Weis

You don’t see me blogging about thrillers or mysteries very often. I do enjoy them, they’re a genre I’ve gotten more into over the last few years. But I find that I’m very picky with what thrillers I want to read. Especially when it comes to adult thrillers. But Have You Seen Me grabbed my attention from the off. I love thrillers and mysteries where the main character isn’t a detective or a police officer. So a teacher and her students looking into some missing girls? I was intrigued. I was able to read an early copy of this book thanks to Black Crow PR, so thanks again Jamie.

Lindsey Gillett is missing. And she’s not the first girl to vanish without a trace. That’s the first thing the blurb tells you. Aubrey is a new teacher at Waverly Prep after having graduated from there years before after one of her classmates was murdered. Now with a new girl missing, she agrees to help her students look into the case in the hope that it would give them some closure.

Book Review: The Forevers by Chris Whitaker

Book Review: The Forevers by Chris Whitaker

Trigger Warnings: Suicide, Self-Harm, Abortion, Disordered Eating, Domestic Abuse, Child Abuse, Homophobia, Paedophilia, Child Sexual Abuse, Fatphobia, Slut Shaming and references to Rape

Yeah, those are a lot of trigger warnings, but before we get into this review, we had to start with them. This is a hard book to read. Not only is it about the world ending, but these characters all have hard lives on top of that. This book is short, so though it’s difficult, it is quick to get through. I was lucky enough to be sent a physical copy of this book thanks to the folks of Hot Key Books, and I’m very glad I read it. I think it’s going to be one that will stick with me for a long while.

What would you do if you could get away with anything? Mae and her friends know they only have 30 days left to live. After coming across the body of her childhood friend, her ghost seems to haunt them all, and Mae wants to find out what happened. But people are more willing to do the deadly things they’d never dreamed of doing before, and chaos will take over the school and town.

Book Review: The Island by C.L. Taylor

Book Review: The Island by C.L. Taylor

I’m really starting to enjoy YA thrillers and knowing C.L. Taylor also writes adult thrillers, I was eager to check this one out. I was granted the audio book through NetGalley and I started listening to it pretty much straight away.

The Island follows six teenagers on a group holiday together. During the trip, they wind up on a survival trip on an island with a guide. But when that guide has a stroke, they find out they are stranded on the island and soon all their phobias are being thrown at them. The book is narrated by Jessie and Danny. Jessie lost her brother a while ago and this the first group holiday since and Danny is worried that his girlfriend, Honour wants to move on from him.
