Book Reviews - Episode 3
Hey everyone! Welcome back to blog! Today we have another book post. Let's get into it!
One of Us is Lying - Karen M. Mcmanus
This book was new to me because I've never really been a murder mystery person, but this book was so good. It's about these 4 kids who are all in detention together when one of the students mysteriously dies. This student had a gossip site where he exposes secrets of the students. The $ in detention were all about to be on his blog before he dies. The book follows them as they try and put the pieces of what happened back together and find out why! This book is such a page turner and has a really good plot twist.
One of Us is Next - Karen M. Mcmanus
Synopisis: One of Us Is Next, the sequel to One of Us is Lying, takes us back to Bayview High. The students receive a group text about a game of "Truth or Dare" among the student population. Choosing "Truth" reveals a secret and choosing "Dare" presents a challenge.
Even as salacious secrets get revealed, the students can't help but enjoy the game and its ominous warnings to "always take the dare" ... until a (new) dead body is found in Bayview
This book was also a really good sequel. It had the same page turning quality and interesting characters. I didn't find the ending as satisfying though, but it was a really good read/
Every Last Word - Tamara Ireland Stone
Every last word is about a girl named Samantha with severe OCD. She struggles with intrusive thoughts as she tries to fit in with the rest of her peers. One day she meet Caroline, who is part of a Poetry club, a hidden room with a group of misfits. She starts to feel more "normal" until something happens and makes her question everything. This book is amazing, and have become of one of my favorites. The writing is so beautiful, and I love the characters.
