Sitting Down With Riley Sager: Author of Finals Girls @riley_sager @DuttonBooks

Last year, I read Final Girls, by Riley Sager, for the first time and I was OBSESSED!  I talked about my love for this book HERE and HERE.   If you are a fan of the mystery/thriller genre, or just a fan of an extremely well-developed narrative, you’ll want to add this one to your TBR pile!  Between the intricate characters, the pacing and the well-developed plot, Final Girls is the perfectly bingeable! And, lucky for us, Final Girls is out in PAPERBACK TODAY!! YAY!

To celebrate the novel’s paperback release, Riley Sager answered a few questions from the #cjsreads crew!  This novel was a 5 star read from all three of us!

Book Review: Final Girls (Riley Sager) @riley_sager @DuttonBooks

Screen Shot 2017-07-10 at 9.54.37 PMThe day is finally here!

The publication day for one of the most anticipated novels of the year, Final Girls by Riley Sager, is here!!

When I read this novel late last year, I named it the book that everyone will be talking about.

Months later, I stand by this statement. Intense, on the edge of your seat, and completely addictive, this mystery thriller is binge read worthy.   If there is a novel that lives up to the hype, it would Final Girls.

If you are a fan of the mystery/thriller genre or just a fan of an extremely well-developed narrative, you’ll want to clear your TBR piles and make this one a priority.

My full review of this novel can be found here.

Chandra and Jessica gave this one a read and made it one of our #cjsreads picks for July.  Keep reading to see if they felt as strongly about this one as I did!

These girls screamed louder, ran faster and fought harder.   They survived.
