The Fear – Natasha Preston (ARC) (🌟🌟🌟🌟)

Don’t be afraid. Be terrified.

It’s just a stupid meme that’s going around their small fishing town in the dead of winter – people reposting and sharing their biggest fear. But when her classmates start turning up dead – dying in the way that they said scared them the most – Izzy knows it’s no joke.

With each death hitting closer to home, Izzy sets out to try to stop the killer. Could her older sister’s friend Tristan have something to do with the deaths? He’s given her some strange vibes. Or what about his brooding cousin, Axel? But he’s in her classes at school. He’s not a murderer…is he? Izzie’s soon on a path that will lead her right to the killer…and her own worst nightmare.

The Rumor Game – Dhonielle Clayton & Sona Charaipotra (ARC)

At Foxham Prep, a posh private school for the children of DC’s elite, a single rumor has the power to ruin a life.

Nobody knows that better than Bryn. She used to have it all – the perfect boyfriend, a bright future in politics, and even popularity, thanks to her best friend, cheer captain Cora. Then one mistake sparked a scandal that burned it all to the ground.

Now it’s the start of a new school year and the spotlight has shifted: It’s geeky Georgie, newly hot after a summer makeover, whose name is on everyone’s lips. When a rumor ignites, Georgie rockets up the school’s social hierarchy, pitting her and Cora against each other. It grants her Foxham stardom…but it also makes her a target.

As the rumors grow and morph, blazing like wildfire through the school’s social media, all three girls’ lives begin to unravel. But one person close to the drama has the power to stop the gossip in its tracks. The question is—do they even want to?

From Dhonielle Clayton and Sona Charaipotra, authors of the Tiny Pretty Things duology (now a Netflix series), comes the edge-of-your-seat social thriller everyone will be talking about.

Up next

The Book of Living Secrets – Madeleine Roux (ARC)

No matter how different best friends Adelle and Connie are, one thing they’ve always had in common is their love of a little-known gothic romance novel called Moira. So when the girls are tempted by a mysterious stranger to enter the world of the book, they hardly suspect it will work. But suddenly they are in the world of Moira, living among characters they’ve obsessed about for years.

Except…all is not how they remembered it. The world has been turned upside down: The lavish balls and star-crossed love affairs are now interlaced with unspeakable horrors. The girls realize that something dark is lurking behind their foray into fiction – and they will have to rewrite their own arcs if they hope to escape this nightmare with their lives.

    Both The Rumor Game and The Book of Living Secrets sounds interesting!! Happy Reading, Raji! I am reading Beasts of Prey but I am finding it quite slow. Did you read it?

      The Rumor Game was a bit of a letdown, but The Book of Living Secrets is really good so far! Yes, I’ve read Beasts of Prey, and apart from some pacing issues, it turned out to be a pretty great read! Hope you enjoy it, and happy reading!

        I am glad to hear The Book of Living Secrets was good. I didn’t enjoy Beasts of Prey… the plot and the main character didn’t impress me.

          Sorry you didn’t enjoy it. I liked it, but I’m still considering whether to read the sequel or not, because I don’t remember much of the plot anymore and would need to reread the first book.
