The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena was the smash hit of the summer. I kept seeing the book review for this domestic thriller everywhere! The back of the book had praise from one of my favourite authors, Tess Gerritsen; she had said this book had her “turning pages like a madwoman”.   After reading that, it sealed the deal. I knew I had to give this one a read. Since I have really been into these types of novels as of lately,  I didn’t even bother read the synopsis of this one before I purchased it.  I was going into this one blind….

I don’t read a whole lot of Young Adult Literature. I usually jump on the teen bandwagon when there is a lot of hype surrounding it and I need to see what the fuss is about (Enter, The Hunger Games). However, when I came across The Merciless by Danielle Vega (the pseudonym for Danielle Rollins), I decided I had to give this one a read. It was marketed as “Mean Girls meets the Exorcist”.
