THE ELIZAS – Sara Shepard (out yesterday)
Check back for the #allthebookreviews thoughts on this one!
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
Who here has read the PRETTY LITTLE LIARS series? Unfortunately I’m not part of that group (I know, I know, I’ll eventually get to them!) but Sara Shepard’s new standalone sounded very intriguing! THE ELIZAS is a lighter thriller read and perfect for those that want to transition into the thriller genre.
This is one of those that all readers love – a book within a book and a book about an author! Eliza Fontaine is a debut novelist and she is found at the bottom of the pool of her hotel. It appears to be a failed suicide attempt, but she is insistent that she was pushed.
She is determined to find out who her attacker is, but with slight memory loss it is proving harder than she ever imagined. With the lines between her life and her upcoming novel beginning to blur, how do we know what is fiction and what is the truth?
Without going into too much more detail, I’m going to say that this is a great unreliable narrator story! Who doesn’t love not knowing if you can trust everything your narrator is telling you? It keeps the suspense up and it had me flipping the pages to see what would happen next. Like I previously mentioned, this is on the lighter side of the thriller genre, so don’t go into it thinking you’ll get a gruesome investigation and crazy twists.
I really enjoyed the writing and will be bumping up the PRETTY LITTLE LIARS series in my TBR. Maybe this summer?
Do you prefer lighter thrillers or the darker and heavier ones?
