Hello friends! Today’s post is going to be about the Thriller-a-thon that I found over on Twitter.
Honestly, I am awfully excited about Thrillerathon.
Thrillerathon was created by @ Harriet_Rosie_ on Twitter, and is taking place from February 18-24. That’s 7 days! I have more than a few books I plan on reading. However, I’m a mood reader to the core. I may not end up reading any or even all of the books I’ve planned. Yikes!
If you’re interested in joining in, or reading along with the Thriller-a-thon, here’s the thrillerathon page on Twitter.
What I’m reading:
I have 5 books that I’m wanting to read in the duration of the thrillerathon week. — If you are interested in these books yourself, click the respective book cover to be lead to their GoodReads page.
The books I’m planning on reading are:
We All Fall Down by Natalie D. Richards
Young Adult, Contemporary, Thriller, Mystery, Suspense, Mental Health, Horror
Theo’s always been impulsive. But telling Paige how he feels? He’s obsessed over that decision. And it’s time. Tonight. At the party on the riverbank, under the old walking bridge, site of so many tales of love and death.
Paige has had a crush on Theo since they first met, but she knows her feelings are one-sided. She’s trying to move on, to flirt. A party at the river is just what she needs. Except a fight breaks out, and when Paige tries to intervene–Theo’s fist lands in her face.
All Theo and Paige want to do is forget that fateful night. But strange events keep drawing them back to the bridge. Someone, something is determined to make them remember…and pay for what they each did.
What I’m expecting from We All Fall Down is a lot of suspense, and a lot of confusion on my part. I also expect that the bridge on the cover will play a huge roll in the novel.
I’m not reading too much into what We All Fall Down is about, because I don’t want to know what happens until it happens. All I can hope for is that Paige turns out alright.
Copycat by Hannah Jayne
Young Adult, Mystery, Thriller
Everyone is dying to read the latest book in the popular Gap Lake mystery series, and Addison is no exception. As the novels biggest fan, Addison is flattered when the infamously reclusive author, R.J. Rosen, contacts her, granting her inside information others would kill for.
But when the most popular girl in Addison’s high school is murdered, Addison can’t help but think that life may be imitating fiction. And as other terrifying events from the book start happening around her, Addison has to figure out how to write her own ending -and survive the story.
I believe that Copycat will be a very interesting read because from what I’ve read from Hannah Jayne’s writings, Jayne hasn’t written a book that imitates a fictional novel within the novel that we, the reader, read.
I’m eager to read Copycat because I love reading what Hannah Jayne writes.
Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon
Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Mystery
Willow Lamott’s best friend is a murderer, and no one in the small town of Gilt Hollow will let her forget it. For four long years, she’s tried to fade into the background—but none of that matters when Ashton Keller comes striding into school, fresh out of juvie and fueled by revenge. The moment their eyes meet, Willow no longer feels invisible. Drawn to the vulnerability behind Ashton’s mask of rage, she sinks deeper into his sinister world and begins to question whether he’s a villain, a savior, or both.
Ashton thought he wanted vengeance, until Willow reminded him what he’d been missing. Now he longs to clear his name and become the person she sees in him. But the closer they get to uncovering the truth, the darker the secrets become, and Ashton fears his return to Gilt Hollow will destroy everyone he loves, especially the girl he left behind.
Gilt Hollow is actually on the list because this title is an old ARC I still haven’t read. I might just start out with reading Gilt Hollow since I don’t want to be deterred, or forget to read it.
I believe that Gilt Hollow will be an emotional novel on the characters part. I’m honestly quite intrigued about the story. I just hope that Gilt Hollow won’t be predictable.
I See You by Clare Mackintosh
Fiction, Mystery, Thriller, Crime, Suspense
It all starts during her commute home one night. Zoe Walker glances through her local paper and sees her own face staring back at her in a classified ad. With the grainy photo is a phone number and a listing for a website called FindTheOne.com.
In the following days, she sees other women in the same ad, a different one every day, and nearly all of them show up in the newspapers as victims of increasingly violent crimes–including murder.
With the help of a determined cop, Zoe uncovers the ad’s twisted purpose…And suddenly, the man on the train sitting across the car–the one smiling at Zoe–could be more than just a friendly stranger. He could be someone who has deliberately chosen her and is ready to make his next move…
I See You has been on my To Be Read list for a while. How I found Clare Mackintosh’s novels was actually through instagram. I first stumbled across Mackintosh’s first book, I Let You Go, on Instagram as well. I do plan on reading I Let You Go (one day, lol) but I See You stands out more to me. I don’t know why yet.
Copycat by Alex Lake
Fiction, Mystery, Psychological/Thriller
Sarah Havenant discovers–when an old friend points it out–that there are two Facebook profiles in her name.
One, she recognizes: it is hers. The other, she has never seen. But everything in it is accurate. Recent photos of her and her friends, her and her husband, her and her kids. Even of her new kitchen. A photo taken inside her house.
She is bemused, angry, and worried. Who was able to do this? Any why?
But this, it soon turns out, is just the beginning. It is only now–almost as though someone has been watching, waiting for her to find the profile–that her problems really start…
Copycat is a book that I saw on Instagram a year or two ago and the synopsis is creepy and seriously freaky in my opinion. What’s creepy about Copycat to me is that someone has basically copied the main character’s life on the internet — Mainly on Facebook, and whomever is impersonating them. But then the impersonator takes things to the next level by starting drama on the internet with people that the MC knows in real life.
Those are the 5 books that I plan on reading during the Thrillerathon. I legitimately don’t know if I’m going to get through all of these books. I’ll have a fun time trying though.
I’m going to try and update my twitter more often while I’m reading these books. Of course I’ll do my best to not post spoilers throughout. If you want to read along with me, my Twitter handle is @ adeleisreading . See you there!
