One of my favorite ways to find new books is on Goodreads. Goodreads allows you to create an account and keep a list of books you’ve already read and save the names of books you’d like to read in the future. Here are my favorite finds for books coming out in the new year:
- I See You by Clare Mackintosh – When a woman discovers a picture of herself in the newspaper, she realizes other women have been featured in the same ad. She quickly learns the women have been victims of violent crimes and must find out who is placing the ads before she becomes a victim herself. (Release date: July 28, 2016)
- The Fall of Lisa Bellow by Susan Perabo – After a middle school girl witnesses her classmate being kidnapped, she is unable to cope with the trauma. The story focuses on the aftermath of the kidnapping and how everyone involved in affected. (Release date: July 27, 2017)
- Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson – After a young woman temporarily swaps apartments with a distant cousin, she learns his next door neighbor has been murdered. Other neighbors claim to have seen her cousin with the woman and believe he is the murderer. As the woman struggles to determine who she can trust, she finds herself in more danger than she could have ever imagined. I’ve read some of Swanson’s other books and am excited to check out his latest. (Release date: January 10, 2017) (* Update: reviewed here)
- Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia – The community is shattered after a local high school senior is murdered. As the police attempt to find the killer, they discover the girl may have been leading a secret life separate from those closest to her. There are already a lot of positive reviews on Goodreads (from those who have been able to read it early) and it looks like it may be one of the biggest thrillers of 2017. (Release date: January 3, 2017) (*Update: reviewed here)
