The Last Time I Lied
The Last Time I Lied: A Novel | Riley Sager
In the new novel from the bestselling author of Final Girls, The Last Time I Lied follows a young woman as she returns to her childhood summer camp to uncover the truth about a tragedy that happened there fifteen years ago. Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she--or anyone--saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips. Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings--massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends. Yet it's immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp's twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present. And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price.

Took some twisty turns that I didn't see coming. Kept me guessing and wondering. Definitely stayed up way too late because I needed to finish it. I'd say those are the signs of a pretty good mystery/thriller.

Another engaging psychological thriller by Riley Sager. I loved it! I‘m a fan of books that take place at summer camps & lakes so I had high expectations going into this. I was captivated by every secret and lie. I finished this book a couple days ago and I‘m still thinking about this story and how I wish it didn‘t have to end. Flawed characters but I still really liked them. Highly recommend.

Not really enough clues to be a mystery. Not really enough suspense-building/fear to be a thriller. But such a page turner! I had the same feelings about Final Girls. 3⭐️ #bfcr3 #bfc #botmbacklog

Me around 10:30: Man it‘s late, better shower and go to bed.
Me at 11: Perfect timing to crawl into bed.
Me, the second I shut my eyes: *thinking about all the twists and turns in Last Time I Lied and imagining how creepy it all would be and all the crazy things that could have gone wrong*
So now that I‘ve throughly spooked myself, I‘ll be up for a while.

2. Gosh.. I'm really having to think about this. It think it was Ralph Breaks The Internet, which coincidentally I am planning to watch again tonight at Movies In the Park

So we finished listening to this book while driving through miles of dark forest in Oregon. It was the perfect spooky setting for the last few hours of the story. Even my husband (who is pretty anti-book lately) was impressed with the final FINAL plot twist-a very twisty twist. Overall I enjoyed the story, but sometimes found Emma a little cringe worthy. I‘d give it 4/5 🔪 🔪 🔪🔪

MaleficentBookDragon This is my favorite book by Sager. 3w

I read this between July 20 & 21st & rated it 4 ⭐️ on Good Reads. Safer is talented with the psychological thriller. Once again I was left guessing if our unreliable narrator was the guilty party or not. Every time I thought I had figured out who did it, Sager lead me down another path making me go maybe, maybe not.

So so so good! This left my heart pounding and the ending had me yelling, “WTF!” I 100% recommend this book. The characters are relatable and the setting adds to the eerie feel of the story. I found myself back at the summer camp I spent many summers at which added to the already masterful suspense.

I finished this book before bed last night and my heart continued to race for at least thirty minutes after finishing. WOW. One of the better thrillers I‘ve read in awhile. I‘m definitely sold on Riley Sager‘s writing. His thrillers are fast paced and hard to put down. This book keeps the twists coming...even down until the very last page. Looking forward to reading his first book, “The Final Girls.”

A great read for summer nights, I loved the summer camp setting that took me back to some favorite 80s horror movies--even though it was set in the present & 15-years prior. Although I guessed several of the many twists & turns, I was surprised by others & the pacing, steadily built tension & gradual unraveling of all of the secrets of Camp Nightingale kept me turning the pages. Not scary, but a good creepy atmospheric vibe & solid thriller. 👍

I assigned the daunting task of picking my July TBR to my husband. He had to pick 7 books from this selection. What do you think he picked? You can find out here: https://youtu.be/2KJrYgqX4Ds

JenFowler My husband would blindly pick 7 and not even try to read the titles...lol 2mo

I thought it was slightly better than okay. It was a solid summer thriller but it took me about 100 pages to care, which for a thriller isn‘t great. I also predicted a lot of the twists. Worth it, but a tad overhyped for me.

Riley Sager does it again! Much like THE FINAL GIRLS, THE LAST TIME I LIED is a creepy, atmospheric summer thriller. Summer camp + missing girls + creepy legends about asylums and flooded towns = perfect beach read.

I found the ending a bit disappointing and the twist reveal fell flat for me. However, the suspense leading up to the end was so strong and compelling, it‘s still a five star read for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #netgalley

Saturday morning: cold brew ☕️w/ coconut milk & my favorite avocado toast w/ spicy sriracha aioli on the patio of my local coffee shop which overlooks the marina. It's actually a bit sunnier that it looks so taking advantage of it before I run my errands & before today's humidity kicks in. Just starting this library e-book loan, on of about 4 concurrent books I have started. I enjoyed Final Girls so I'm hoping to like this one. Happy Saturday!☀️
