The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine
While the original cover is stunning, the new paperback edition of The Last Mrs. Parrish is PERFECT for this hot summer read. In The Last Mrs. Parrish, Amber Pattinson will stop at nothing to attain a life of money and power like the one Daphne Parrish takes for granted. What follows is a juicy, and addictive thriller about how Amber weasels her way into the lives of a wealthy “golden couple.”
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
We absolutely LOVE the look of the tenth anniversary edition of American Gods by Neil Gaiman! The old school cover art and new font is perfect for the story, and we love the inclusion of Shadow and Mr. Wednesday in the image. If you haven’t read it yet, American Gods is the story of Shadow, an average, unassuming man who gets swept up in a war for the very soul of America between a cast of mythical and eccentric beings.
A Simple Favor by Darcey Bell
Who’s excited to see A Simple Favor once it hits theatres next month?! But of course, you know the golden rule: the book is always better. So makes sure you read A Simple Favor first! And check out the gorgeous new movie tie-in edition! We love the stunning pops of colour and Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively on the cover! This psychological thriller tells the story of a mommy blogger whose life is turned upside down when her best friend suddenly disappears. Queue the secrets, betrayals the ever-revolving question of who is duping whom.
Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson
While the original edition of Peter Swanson‘s Her Every Fear was amazing, we love the creepy new paperback cover! So dark, and that hand is so scary! Her Every Fear is an electrifying Hitchcockian thriller in which a young woman is caught in a web of voyeurism, manipulation and murder after a woman is murdered in the apartment across from her. This one is absolutely bone-chilling and you’ll be checking your locks before bed after you read it!
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
An old classic with an updated cover! Check out the vivid colours on the paperback of Harper Lee‘s beloved novel. Featuring some of the most memorable characters in literary history To Kill a Mockingbird is an unforgettable story of race, class, and the Deep South of the 1930s.
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
Ann Patchett’s stunning novel about love and opera takes place during a terrorist attack at a party at a South American embassy. While we loved the musical elements of the original hardcover, the movie tie-in is dark, dreamy and perfect. The movie is out next month!
