I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh and The Sixes by Kate White

Apologies for so many days in between posts-I've been dealing with some personal stuff and work has been really busy (report card season and the last three weeks of school). Life continues to be busy for the rest of this month (my 30th birthday party, Mother's Day, friends' birthdays, family coming into town), but I'm still reading, and posting whenever I can, I promise!

So on to the reviews!

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review itself.

I absolutely love a book that turns everything on its head halfway through the story (see Gone Girl), that takes everything I thought I knew and changes it completely, and does it in a way that makes total sense looking back.

I Let You Go does just that, and does it brilliantly. When I got to the twist, I actually gasped out loud.

I Let You Go is the story of a hit and run accident that leaves a little boy dead and his mother grieving. It is the story of the police who are searching to find the driver. And it is the story of so much more, but I honestly can't say any more for fear of giving something away. Trust me, you want to go into this book knowing just the basics, so you can be as completely shocked as I was.

All you really need to know is I Let You Go is really, really good, and you can get a copy of it now to read yourself.

The Sixes is set on a college campus, where Phoebe has found herself teaching after her latest bestseller has her accused of plagiarism. When students start disappearing, and bodies start turning up, Phoebe throws herself into an unofficial investigation. As she digs deeper, she begins to discover evidence of a female secret society known only as The Sixes, which triggers her own memories about a tragic and terrifying event.

This is one of those reads that flies by, that grabs you and doesn't let you go. As Phoebe learned more and more, I became more and more intrigued, and had to find out the solutions to the many mysteries surrounding the campus, the deaths, and The Sixes. The solution is definitely a surprise, and I like that the twists kept coming.
