FRIDAY FINDS (1)

Here I am with another list of book I’ve added to my TBR shelf this week!

All three are mystery novels this week, but one is also a non-fic! Read about them below.

Synopsis: You think your front door key is unique. It’s not. 

In fact, quite a few people – all of them total strangers – possess a key that is identical to yours.

Imagine if one of these strangers went from door to door, trying their key in each lock. Eventually they would find one that opened. 

What if it was yours?

This sounds CREEPY AS HECK. It’s not out until next year so there’s a long time to wait for it, but it sounds like it’s definitely going to be worth it! Right?

Copycat

Synopsis: Imitation is the most terrifying form of flattery…

Which Sarah Havenant is you?

When an old friend gets in touch, Sarah Havenant discovers that there are two Facebook profiles in her name. One is hers. The other, she has never seen.

But everything in it is accurate. Photos of her friends, her husband, her kids. Photos from the day before. Photos of her new kitchen. Photos taken inside her house.

And this is just the beginning. Because whoever has set up the second profile has been waiting for Sarah to find it. And now that she has, her life will no longer be her own…

I was initially drawn to this one because of the striking cover, but reading the synopsis definitely bagged it a place on my TBR shelf.  I love all these novels that incorporate social media, because it is such an easy tool to use to terrorise people!

Dead Mountain

“The Untold True Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident”

Synopsis: In February 1959, a group of nine experienced hikers in the Russian Ural Mountains died mysteriously on an elevation known as Dead Mountain. Eerie aspects of the incident—unexplained violent injuries, signs that they cut open and fled the tent without proper clothing or shoes, a strange final photograph taken by one of the hikers, and elevated levels of radiation found on some of their clothes—have led to decades of speculation over what really happened. This gripping work of literary nonfiction delves into the mystery through unprecedented access to the hikers’ own journals and photographs, rarely seen government records, dozens of interviews, and the author’s retracing of the hikers’ fateful journey in the Russian winter. A fascinating portrait of the young hikers in the Soviet era, and a skillful interweaving of the hikers narrative, the investigators’ efforts, and the author’s investigations, here for the first time is the real story of what happened that night on Dead Mountain

I’ve always been interested in the Dyatlov Pass incident. It’s such a creepy story and I can’t ever imagine that we will ever know the answer to what really happened, so I would like to see what this book has to say!

I seem to be adding at least one non-fiction book to my TBR each week at the moment!

So there you have it, those are the three books I added to my TBR this week.

Have you guys read any of these books / want to read any of these books? I’d love to hear what you think!
