What I'm reading: August 2022

Here are the top five books I'm looking forward to reading before the end of summer.



My "to read" list on Goodreads has stretched to include 55 novels! Here are the top five books I'm looking forward to reading most this summer.


All Good People Here by Ashley Flowers

It's safe to say I'm most excited for the debut novel of Crime Junkie podcaster Ashley Flowers. It is expected to publish in mid-August 2022. Small town, unsolved murder, new disappearance twenty years later ... This book has all the makings of a great thriller.


The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James

Simone St. James writes with high tension. In this novel, a true crime blogger interviews a woman acquitted of a crime many years before and begins to question if she is befriending a murderer.


The Pallbearers Club by Paul Tremblay

The books I've read by Paul Tremblay are unsettling, unforgettable, and excellently written. His writing style stands out in a sea of sameness, but his plots and characters deliver, too.


A History of Wild Places by Shea Ernshaw

This novel explores the mysteries of a reclusive community. I'm fascinated by stories with unconventional settings or ways of life. The description sounds surreal and eerie, with fantastical elements woven in.


The Premonitions Bureau: A True Account of Death Foretold by Sam Knight

This is a true story of a psychiatrist who came to believe in premonitions. I enjoy nonfiction, especially books that dive into the psychology of the human mind.


And my number one most-anticipated summer read: The House Across the Lake by Riley Sager! I just started this book over the weekend. Riley Sager consistently writes my favorite new book each year, so I look forward to writing a book review when I finish his newest.
