BOOKS THAT RESONATE…

Today I’m participating in Sam’s WWW Wednesdays Here’s how it works:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?

***

Currently Reading:  I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, by Michelle McNamara, a library book:  The haunting true story of the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California during the 70s and 80s, and of the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case—which was solved in April 2018.

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

I love Heather Gudenkauf’s books, so when I learned of this upcoming release, I immediately bookmarked  Before She Was Found .

It will be out on April 16, 2019.

Synopsis:  For twelve-year-old Cora Landry and her friends Violet and Jordyn, it was supposed to be an ordinary sleepover—movies and Ouija and talking about boys. But when they decide to sneak out to go to the abandoned rail yard on the outskirts of town, little do they know that their innocent games will have dangerous consequences.

Later that night, Cora Landry is discovered on the tracks, bloody and clinging to life, her friends nowhere to be found. Soon their small rural town is thrust into a maelstrom. Who would want to hurt a young girl like Cora—and why? In an investigation that leaves no stone unturned, everyone is a suspect and no one can be trusted—not even those closest to Cora.

Before She Was Found is a timely and gripping thriller about friendship and betrayal, about the power of social pressure and the price of needing to fit in. It is about the great lengths a parent will go to protect their child and keep them safe—even if that means burying the truth, no matter the cost.

    1. Ha-ha…but you DID mention it, Patty. I’m still not going there! Even if it is more user-friendly now, I don’t need another book source! It’s bad enough keeping up with NetGalley and Vine. Thanks for visiting.

    I loved I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, though I started reading it before the guy was caught so it was a bit more terrifying when the guy was still at large. I imagine that this was a tough book to get out with the death of the author, but I think they did a great job pulling together her information. Here is what I’ve been reading this week: https://greatmorrisonmigration.wordpress.com/2018/08/29/www-wednesdays-august-29-2018/

    1. Oh, yes, I am glad he was caught…but he looks disappointingly ordinary! How is that possible?

      Thanks for stopping by, Sarah, and I won’t read the book at night…even though he is tucked away. I worry about copy cats.

    1. Thanks, Leslie, I saw those comments, too. Since I was living here in California during the Golden State Killer’s siege, I would be one of those having nightmares…if he hadn’t been caught. But then again, there are copy cat killers. I think I won’t read it at night. LOL

  2. I’ve heard nothing but good things about I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. It’s on my to-reads!

    What did you think about When the Lights Go Out? I loved everything, except the ending, which I hated. I felt a bit cheated and now the overall book has left a bad taste in my mouth.

  3. I keep contemplating reading that book by Michelle McNamara. It sounds so creepy. I am so glad that her book helped them catch the killer. You have so many books that I need to look up this week. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
