Happy Friday! This weekend I’m reading, The Guest List by Lucy Foley. I’ve never read anything by her (but I hear great things!) so I’m really looking forward to this.
I seem to be on a dark, atmospheric book kick just lately. Last week I read Home Before Dark by Riley Sager, a ghosty, twisty thriller that I devoured in less than a day. My TBR pile is filled to overflowing with beachy reads but my current reading tastes seem to be skewing toward October!
What are you reading right now? Any suggestions? I love getting good book recs!

The Guest List
The bride – The plus one – The best man – The wedding planner – The bridesmaid – The body
On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed.
But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.
And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?
