For someone who loves to read, it has been ages since I have shared on here any book recommendations! That is mainly because life has been a little busy to read as many books as I would like. But I figured sharing a few that I love was better than having a bunch to share. So here are my book recommendations #6, which includes one of the best books I have ever read!
This is hands down one of the best books I have ever read! I picked this up on a whim before my trip this summer, and it was the best choice. The author describes it as a “time travel, body-hopping, Agatha Christie-style murder mystery novel” and it is exactly that. The book is about a woman, Evelyn Hardcastle, who dies every day until the main character can identify who her killer is and break the never-ending cycle. But every time a new day begins, the main character wakes up in the body of someone else.
What I love about the novel is you are learning everything at the same time the main character is. In the beginning author’s note, he says “Think of 7 1/2 Deaths as a game of Clue. This book is the board and all the pieces, and I’m opposite you playing along.” It is a plot-heavy book with many twists and turns, but you won’t want to put it down. The story is so unique and if you love mystery books, I highly recommend this one!
‘Our House’ is another book I picked up for my summer trip. It is a suspense novel about a woman who comes home to find that a new couple is moving into her house, and her husband is nowhere to be seen. The twists in this book are really good and the ending will have you with your hand to your forehead thinking “are you kidding me” (but in a worth reading kind of way.). Although I will say, this book made me paranoid that what happens with her house could actually happen in real life.
If you couldn’t tell, suspense and mystery are my favorite kinds of novels to read. ‘I Am Watching You’ is about a woman who sees two young girls on a train talking to two men who just got out of prison. The next day one of those girls is reported missing. The story takes place a year later when the young girl is still missing, and the woman from the train is receiving threatening letters about it. This prompts her to start asking questions of the girl’s friends and family, which unravels a lot of secrets. If you are looking for an easy read then I suggest giving this one a try.
I hope you found a book that piques your interest, and I would love to know if you have read any good books recently!
