National Read-a-Book Day
National Read-a-Book Day is celebrated every September 6. Some of us can't put our book down, but most of us tend to put reading on the back burner right next to cleaning the house, studying, or even going to the gym. Celebrate Read-a-Book Day by taking carving some time out of the day to read. There is a book out there for all of us, where will yours take you?
"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies .. the man who never reads only lives one." - George R.R. Martin, "Game of Thrones"
by Megan Miranda Year Published: 2016
Miranda, known for her successful young-adult thrillers, has crafted a darkly nostalgic adult debut sure to draw new readers and please her YA base. Nicolette Farrell left Cooley Ridge, North Carolina, 10 years ago in the wake of her best friend Corinne's disappearance. Now a school counselor in Philadelphia and engaged to a successful attorney, Nic reluctantly returns to Cooley Ridge to handle her father's affairs after a stroke sends him to a nursing home. With Nic's arrival, the fallout surrounding Corinne's disappearance resurfaces as if no time has passed, confronting her with unresolved feelings about Corinne, a dangerous attraction to her first love, and a growing cloud of suspicion surrounding her family's role in Corinne's disappearance. Then Annaleise Carter, who provided the alibi for Nic and her friends the night Corinne disappeared, goes missing, and Nic scrambles to understand the clues she's unearthed implicating her loved ones. Miranda takes a risk by telling the story backward, but it pays off with an undroppable thriller, plenty of romantic suspense, and a fresh take on the decades-old teenage-murder theme.
