The Apprentice, Rizzoli & Isles #2
by Tess Gerritsen
 

One of the toughest Boston dectives, Jane Rizzoli, investigates a series of brutal crimes that are eerily similair to the case that nearly got her killed.  I love a good police procedural and this one doesn't disappoint! The second novel in a long series so if you get hooked, you've got lots more to get through. - Sadie

 

You Will Know Me
by Megan Abbott
 

I became quickly obsessed with eBooks after I read You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott. Typically, I would not gravitate towards a book about elite teenage gymnasts...but this book was recommended to me by a friend when I explained how much I loved Girl on a Train. She suggested this because both books have an unreliable narrator. You never really know what is happening until the very end, typical for books written in the vein of Gone Girl. Since then, I've read everything by Megan Abbott and cannot wait to fangirl on her someday.

If you want a quick read with an unreliable narrator similar to Girl on a Train or Gone Girl, check out You Will Know Me. You will not regret it! - Kellie

 

The Serpent King
by Jeff Zentner
 

When I checked this book out, I knew absolutely nothing about it other than it's on the Sequoyah High School Masterlist this year. I'm not sure what I thought the title meant, but I was NOT expecting it to refer to a snake-handling church! Dillard Early, Jr. is the son of a disgraced pastor who is now serving prison time for child pornography. Dill and his friends Lydia and Travis are outcasts in their small Tennessee town, and they each have their own struggles. The book is written with each chapter alternating perspectives between the three teens, and they each have their own unique voice. I'm not quite to the end of the book, but I've already cried A LOT. This is a great book for anyone who has struggled to fit in, or who has never wanted to fit in and proudly blazed their own trail. - Kassy
