What I'm reading: July 2023

Here are five titles I’ve added to my TBR pile this summer.

As summer marches on, I love to enjoy a glass of wine on the patio in the evening with a much-anticipated new read. Take a look at the top five books that have rocketed to the top of my TBR pile this summer.

The Only One Left by Riley Sager

I’m a little over halfway through this book right now. Sager’s books are an automatic must-read for me every summer, and this one is not disappointing so far. Like his other novels, I can’t begin to guess where this one is going. Sager is masterful at ratcheting up the suspense.

The Woods Are Waiting by Katherine Greene

Creepy woods, missing children, eccentric mother—this book has all the makings of a dark, twisty tale. Fun facts: Katherine Greene is the pen name of two friends, and this is a debut thriller! This is next up on my TBR pile.

None of This Is True by Lisa Jewell

Jewell adeptly creates complex characters with emotional depth while delivering jaw-dropping thrillers, and I’m sure this will be no exception. Releasing in August, this novel is about a woman who finds herself the subject of her own popular true crime podcast.

Liar, Dreamer, Thief by Maria Dong

When a compulsive stalker witnesses a suicide, her life is uprooted, and she’s forced to confront painful truths in this provocative mystery. This inventive debut explores mental health and blends fantasy with reality.

Bright Young Women by Jessica Knoll

Releasing in September, this novel is inspired by the sorority targeted by Ted Bundy in Florida during his last spree before capture. I’m intrigued by the true crime element at the core of this book. Coupled with Knoll’s excellent writing style, this one is sure to be a page-turner.
