Final Girls
Final Girls | Riley Sager
Each girl survived an unthinkable horror. Now someone wants them dead... They were called The Final Girls. Three young women who survived unimaginable horror. Three victims of separate massacres grouped together by the press. Three strangers bound by similar traumas. Lisa. Quincy. Samantha. When something terrible happens to Lisa, put-together Quincy and volatile Sam finally meet. Each one influences the other. Each one has dark secrets. And after the bloodstained fingers of the past reach into the present, each one will never be the same.

Fresh idea, solid writing, and a twist that didn't even make it onto my radar! I like his second book better, but this quick paced mystery thriller took me on a wild ride! I didn't like the characters, but I'm not sure I was supposed to - it makes it easier to suspect everyone - and I was still blindsided!

Very impressive debut. Sager weaves a complicated web, yet the reader never loses the thread.
Filled with intrigue & betrayal, this is just what you want out of a summer read.
Also, I can recommend this as an audiobook. It was so enthralling I listened to it for 3 hours or more each day. I wanted to keep hearing what was coming next.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book was highly recommended, but I just thought it moved too slowly. There was no action in the first two thirds, and then it all came out, but I prefer my books to have action throughout. Maybe that‘s just me?

In the end I managed 19hours of reading in the #12in24 #readathon
Not to bad considering I came down with the flu yesterday.
I finished Duma Key and Final Girls and is about halfway with The Chain.
This was fun!
Next time I'll be a bit more prepared, as it took me half an hour to choose a book after finishing Duma Key 🙈

I settled on "pick" for this one because it was a quick and easy read that kept my attention. I am not usually one to figure out the twists early on, but my gut feeling for this one was spot on. Nothing about this story surprised me.

5feet.of.fury I liked that main characters a lot. The different ways people deal with things. The juxtaposition was quite good. 3mo

Wow!! What a page turner!

Quincy's memory is riddled with holes from the massacre at Pine Cottage. She's become a Final Girl, but she refuses to fit into the role of "victim". What unfolds nearly 10 years following the event is shocking, full of twists and turns, and surprising characters.

I'm surprised it took me this long to finally crack open one of Sager's books. I will surely be grabbing his next read very soon!!

I loved this book!! I read it one day!! A group of college students, a cabin in the woods, an insane asylum, selective amnesia, unlikely survivors, twisty plot, and chills right up to the end. Every bit as good as The Last Time I Lied. I can't wait to read Lock Every Door, coming out in July. Riley Sager is one of my favorite authors. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

That twist and ending made up for the slow start! My previous post was about falling asleep while reading; that did not happen to me last night. I had to keep going because I needed answers! So good.

Starting the weekend off right. I really am one those who would rather stay home and read than go out and party. Don‘t get me wrong, I like the occasional outing, while having some adult beverages... but during at least 50% of that time, I‘m thinking about my books. And my dog. 😉 Happy Friday everyone!

Correction, I had to put it down last night. It was making me very uneasy as I started trying to put things together. Serious "the call is coming from inside the house" vibes.

Man, this book. At times I wanted to throw it across the room because Quincy pissed me off 😂
But this book was quite a ride. Props to Riley Sager for letting me think i had figured it out and then showing me just how wrong I was on multiple occasions. It's a rare thing to find a thriller like this that keeps you guessing to the end. If you like thrillers, definitely pick this one up. 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

In the years following the massacre at Pine Cottage, sole survivor, Quincy, has fallen in love and started a successful baking blog. She's moved on. Only she hasn't. Being a Final Girl never goes away...

I enjoyed this read. Hyperbolic, but in a good way, reminiscent of the whodunnit slashers of the 90s & early 2000s. Tropey but not without twists. The middle was a little meh, but by the 75% mark, I couldn't put it down.

We, as a society, have to get a lot better at not demonizing and looking down on people who struggle with suicidal thoughts and feelings. The huge umbrella that encompasses mental health issues should never be scoffed at. Eyes should never be rolled. Someone who doesn't struggle with thoughts of suicide is not inherently better than someone who does.

Just saying.

Chrissyreadit I think we need to get better at understanding many underlying issues as well. I work with people in recovery and the concept of second chances, serving time and redemption are a joke. I am on the line to show hope and grounding when punishment is all that is offered by our systems and culture. 4mo

scowler1 Waltzing through life with no empathy, love or concern for anyone but yourself is also a serious mental health issue. Many of our elected officials suffer terribly with this condition which usually affects those with below average intelligence. Smart, compassionate people often struggle with living among them. 4mo

Rained in at the cottage. Seems like the perfect time to start a horror from my TBR. Final Girls opens on a girl's escape from Pine Cottage where her friends have just been horrifically murdered. I'd say that checks all my boxes 😏

#RedRightHand always makes me think of Scream, which always makes me think of Sidney Prescott, played by Neve Campbell, which makes me think of Final Girls by Riley Sager, which I thought was meh, but was more me than the book. In all these horror situations you think, if they‘d just #cometogether they‘d be ok, but everyone likes to go check out that noise outside, in the dark, by themselves, after having lost their virginity.

Looking at the #Clues in another #BOTMchallenge book...I went back and listened a second time CAREFULLY to this book. There was only one clue as to who the killer was. That frustrated me. I like books that lead you along, not ones that come up with wacky endings.

I could say the same about Before the Fall as well. Just a bunch of silly red herrings! Sigh.
