The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

Book Summary:
Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she–or anyone–saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.
Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings–massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends.
Yet it’s immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp’s twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present.
And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price.

My Review:

I know I’m reviewing an adult read. I did enjoyed Riley Sager other book, The Final Girls. So i was excited for his new book. He is gonna to be my go to guy for good adult thrillers. If you guys not into adult thrillers, then you can skip this review.

The detailed summary give most of the book away. It what written on back of book. Don’t forget it’s a thriller and there be some twists and turns.

I enjoyed the main character story, Emma. I liked how the story switches up between her time at camp in the past and now. There’s a lot of questions on what happen years ago and Emma the main suspect. How can three campers just disappears years ago? Emma faces her past when she goes back to camp. Will she be able to find answers to the past?

The book is a slow start like any mystery/thriller read. Once it picks up, you will keep guessing until the very end on what’s going on. Beware, Riley knows how to shock you in the end. In mood for good thriller, then this book be a right for for you.

Happy Reading!!

{Arc Review} When Life Gives You Demons by Jennifer Honeybourn

Book Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Shelby Black has spent the past year training to be an exorcist. Her great-uncle Roy—a Catholic priest and Shelby’s guardian—believes she has a gift for expelling demons, and he’s put her through exorcist boot camp hell, but he still doesn’t trust her to do an exorcism on her own.
High school is hard enough without having to explain that you fight demons for a living, so Shelby keeps her extracurricular activity quiet, especially from Spencer, her cute math tutor. Secrets run in Shelby’s family, though: her mother has been missing ever since an exorcism went horribly wrong, and Uncle Roy is tight-lipped about it. But Shelby’s hell-bent on finding her mom, no matter what—even if what it ends up costing her her soul AND a date with Spencer.

My Review:

Another original book I read over vacation. It was such a fun book and I really like the cover to it and also the story.

Shelby, a girl who trained to exorcist demons. I enjoy watching the struggle she deals with keeping her secrets from her friends and also lead a normal life. Will she be able to maintain a balance of normal life and demons?

The book had a Buffy the vampire slayer vibe, but with demons than vampires. It’s also action pack, a lot of demon killing. The book comes out July 17th this month. Keep an eye out for it.

So what would you do, When Life Hands You Demons??

Happy Reading!!
