I couldn’t put this book down, I had to know what happened! So if you’re not busy for a couple of days, you should definitely pick this one up! It is told by three different narrators, one of which has a totally unreliable memory, and we have to piece together the events surrounding the murder. One of the voices is Rachel, and she begins investigating the murder herself when she sees something suspicious at the side of the train tracks. It has an unexpected and completely satisfying ending! ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

This is a modern fairy tale that feels like an old one. It is not the sweet, happy ending kind, but the darker sort, where the fae folk are not so friendly. The novel follows two creatively talented sisters - Imogen, a writer of fairy tales and Marin, a successful ballerina - as they are both accepted to an elite artist’s retreat. But it would seem this prestigious program has secrets that may pit the sisters against each other, and will definitely change their lives. Beautifully written and hard to put down. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

This is the first in a new series from Maas, author of The Throne of Glass series. It’s a wonderfully lush and evocative novel about the Fae. When nineteen-year-old huntress and mortal, Feyre, inadvertently kills one of the immortal High Fae, she is thrown into a whole other world she must learn to navigate in order to survive. Highly Recommend! ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
