Die Again

Tess Gerritsen is now officially my new favourite crime novelist!

'Die again' - while I suspected it to be cheesy and predictable - was actually anything but! Right up until the last chapter, I had no idea who the killer was, and the narrative flowed so smoothly I barely even noticed that I was staying up til the early morning hours to read 'just one more page'.

After a prestigious taxidermist is brutally killed, Rizzoli and Isles have to find the killer - but while on his tracks, they seem to be finding more and more bodies that are connected to the killer. Their hunt takes Rizzoli all the way to the African bush, and Maura has to face some truths about herself and who she is.

Mary: The Summoning

What a great book! 
It's just the right amount of scary that will make you want to avoid mirrors at night, but not leave you unable to sleep. There's lots of great history about Mary, and an idea of what might happen if she really did show up in your mirror. I also loved that there's no unrealistic happy ending where no one has to deal with the consequences of a stupid idea. I think the realism of it contributes a lot to how scary it is. I wouldn't recomment this to scaredycats under 12 years.

This book opened my eyes to  bullying, the different types of bullying, and the pain that Paige had to go through. Paige Rawl was (and continues to be) ordinary, but slightly different - Paige has HIV. This memoir tells Paige's journey to accept herself, fight the bullying, and educate people about her disease. You are immersed in an experience both 'deeply personal and completely universal'. I was brought to tears by her continuous battle. I hope you are too. - Morgan
