Final Girls by Riley Sager
(Dutton Books – July 11, 2017)

ALL THE BLOOD. And all the drama.

This one was a 2-sitting read for me, and the only reason I didn’t finish it in one is because I was too freaked out to try to read any more of it in bed! It is classic slasher and the comparisons to Scream were perfect – if this were a film there would be crazy-dramatic music and you’d be yelling at the screen, “Do NOT go back in there! Are you CRAZY!?” all the while reveling in the delicious dramatic horror of it all. I was kept guessing almost up to almost the very end (I did have a few moments of wondering at the possibility of the real killer during the book) and can honestly say this is the first blood-soaked book I have enjoyed since high school (and that was almost 20 years ago). Not my typical read, but one I’m very glad I indulged in!

And off the topic of the book, here’s the REAL mystery…….

WHO IS RILEY SAGER??? I’m dying trying to figure out who the real author of this book is, since we are well aware that it’s a pseudonym! Can’t wait to dig into this more!

Thanks to Dutton Books and the Final Girls Friday club for the signed finished copy of the book! (#PRHPartner)
