Are the light fluffy romances just not doing it for you this summer? We get you!
Do you want your beach read to be so gripping that you can't physically tear yourself from the page? Are you into books that leave you saying, WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
This list is gonna be the best thing that's ever happened to you. I promise.
Fans of the Wife Between Us and Black Mirror will love this brutally human story of betrayal and revenge! Evelyn is a scientist perfecting clone technology when she discovers her husband is having an affair with a cloned version of herself that he created: Martine, who has been programmed by Nathan to be a more perfect version of Evelyn. One night, Martine calls Evelyn pleading for help, and when someone ends up dead, they’ll do the unthinkable to ensure that no one uncovers the truth. Secrets, plot twists, and lies are unearthed, one shovelful at a time, and Gailey’s words jab you like shards of bone - sharp and just as disturbing. I still feel this book burrowing into my mind like dirt shoved deep under my fingernails. -Jessi
This dark and gut-wrenching tale of motherhood, marriage, and hereditary trauma is for fans of THE PUSH, but it's much more terrifying and creepy. It's also the most beautifully written horror novel I've ever read. -Alyssa
