Friday Finds #17: March 24, 2017

screen-shot-2016-11-25-at-9-09-29-amFriday Finds (a feature originated by Jenn at Books and A Beat) showcases the most interesting books that I have encountered during the last week and have added to my TBR wish list on Goodreads.

I am constantly adding titles to my never-ending TBR list and I can’t wait to share them with people.

Check out my newest and most wanted additions (or editions?…see what I did there!)

The One That Got Away

Description:

Everyone has one. An ex you still think about. The one who makes you ask ‘what if’?

Fifteen years have passed since Stella and George last saw each other. But something makes Stella click ‘yes’ to the invite to her school reunion. There’s still a spark between them, and although their relationship ended badly, they begin an affair. But once someone gets you back, sometimes they’re never going to let you go again…

I feel like this one would be a perfect blend of the romance stories I enjoy reading and the “relationship gone wrong” stories I love reading even more!  I haven’t really read a book that sounds similar so I’m hoping it will be a nice chance of pace for me!

Sweetpea

The last person who called me ‘Sweetpea’ ended up dead…
I haven’t killed anyone for three years and I thought that when it happened again I’d feel bad. Like an alcholic taking a sip of whisky. But no. Nothing. I had a blissful night’s sleep. Didn’t wake up at all. And for once, no bad dream either. This morning I feel balanced. Almost sane, for once.
Rhiannon is your average girl next door, settled with her boyfriend and little dog…but she’s got a killer secret.
Although her childhood was haunted by a famous crime, Rhinannon’s life is normal now that her celebrity has dwindled. By day her job as an editorial assistant is demeaning and unsatisfying. By evening she dutifully listens to her friend’s plans for marriage and babies whilst secretly making a list.
A kill list.
From the man on the Lidl checkout who always mishandles her apples, to the driver who cuts her off on her way to work, to the people who have got it coming, Rhiannon’s ready to get her revenge.
Because the girl everyone overlooks might be able to get away with murder…

This one has been recommended to me several times.  I am waiting patiently for it’s release in the UK so I can run to Book Depository and get my hands on this one.  Plus the cover is gorgeous!

Still Missing

Chevy Stevens

Description:

On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old realtor, had three goals—sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.
Still Missing interweaves the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfold through sessions with her psychiatrist, with a second narrative following the events after her escape—her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.
Still Missing is a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted novel.

 I read my first Chevy Stevens book a few weeks ago and was in LOVE!  This one came highly recommended to read so I am all about this!  

Are any of these titles on your TBR list?  Maybe you have already read one?  Let me know!

    All these books sound interesting. The first one sounds like a bit of a romance thriller especially due to the last sentence. I really like the sound of Sweet Pea. It sounds like my kind of book.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
