Best Books of Summer 2018 and a Giveaway

But before you do that, here are some other best page-turners coming your way, now and these coming weeks:

The Perfect Mother by Aimee Moll
Let's start with the one I am reading now; a full review is coming next week. This will be Kerry Washington's next project after Scandal. Molloy’s debut is about a group of Brooklyn mommies and the disappearance of one of their babies.

Florida by Lauren Groff.
This one is included in the giveaway listed below. Her sequel to Fates and Furies Groff delves into the mysteries, marvels, and dangers of everyday life, in the Sunshine State.

The Favorite Sister by Jessica Knoll
Her second novel after the massive success of Luckiest Girl alive, finds two sisters appearing in a reality TV series. Only to have one of the two die before the season is over. This sounds promising, I wasn't 100 percent sold on her first, but it was very well written, and if this delivers in an UnReal level of shenanigans, I'm in.

Sorority by Genevieve Sly Crane
This is a  multi-voice structured story with the death of a sorority sister in the back and foreground. I don't think this will be a thriller, but it has been compared to Prep, delving even deeper into the dark side of college sisterhood. Speaking of Prep, Cutis Sittenfeld newest is included in the giveaway.

The Missing Girl by Jenny Quintana
When her mother dies, Anna returns home. There she's confronted with the reality she pushed away for decades, the disappearance of her sister thirty years before. Is it too late to find out what happened to Gabriella? This sounds like the part depressing, part addictive family horror that British authors are so good at.

The Disappearance of Sloan Sullivan by Gia Cribbs, Best books summer 2018

The Disappearance of Sloan Sullivan by Gia Cribbs
A YA thriller. Sloane Sullivan is in the witness protection program. She had to continually change identities since she was 12 years old and witnessed a crime. But Soon Sloane will turn eighteen and get her permanent identity if nothing goes wrong in the nine weeks leading up to her birthday. A review is coming soon!

The Disappearance of Sloan Sullivan by Gia Cribbs

Who is Vera Kelly? By Rosalie Knecht:

Providence by Caroline Kepnes

The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware

The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware
Hal reads tarot card for a living. One day she receives a letter informing her of the inheritance coming her way. But the note is sent to the wrong person. Hal attends the funeral, only to realize that something about this inheritance is very off.

Give Me Your Hand

Megan Abbott is my favorite writer; I might have mentioned that before. I am so looking forward to reading  Give Me Your Hand
Kit and Diane were unlikely friends back in high school chemistry class. Until Diane shared a secret that changed everything between them. After years of not seeing each other Diane visits Kit's lab, Diane is her competition for a position both women covet, taking part in groundbreaking new research led by their idol. And off we go again, two women squaring off, and Abbott twisting their souls, until every last piece of dark, envious, misguided juice drips out.

The Banker’s Wife by Cristina Alger,

The Banker’s Wife by Cristina Alger,
A private plane heading to Geneva goes down during a storm, and the widow of one of its passengers wants answers. Oh my, I miss Geneva, will there be Geneva scenes in this book? Anyway, this sounds a bit like The Pilot's wife. Was the crash an accident? What was her husband doing on a plane bound toward Geneva?

Undead Girl Gang Lily Anderson

Undead Girl Gang Lily Anderson
Another YA thriller, this one sounds like a major creep fest. Three girls are dead until they aren't. Mila, an amateur witch, has brought them back to life. Now they only have to find out who their killer is. 

My own book of course Hollywood Daze by Simona Moroni

When Mona goes to Hollywood to help her brother make his Hollywood debut, she meets Elki— a K-town native, who spends her days chasing obscure memorabilia, healing a traumatized puppy, and acting as de facto leader of a group of rowdy girls.
Elki makes Mona believe she can stand up to her brother's selfish demands. But Mona gets pulled in like never before. When everything spirals out of control, she finds herself in charge, on the point of destroying her family.
Worse, about to put her only friend in mortal danger.
