So I read lots of books with twist endings but I’m going to highlight three. Also 50th post for the blog. Woo!
1) The Greystone Secrets: The Strangers
I’m usually pretty good at figuring out mysteries in books, especially Middle-Grade books. Which I suppose is to be expected, however, I’m delighted when I’m surprised. The Strangers kept me guessing right till the end. I will say that Margaret Peterson Haddix is usually pretty good about mysteries and again she doesn’t disappoint. This was by far my favorite book of the year when it came to surprises.
2) Small Spaces
Arden’s narrative is well-paced, and I didn’t figure out the mystery till close to the end, which I always love for scary books. My only problem with it is that it’s too short and I wanted more. I love that the monsters are mysterious and the main villain is not what they seem.
3) Dead Voices
This was maybe even creepier than Small Spaces. The group has to face sinister forces by themselves, and they can’t trust what is around them. I love the false starts and different twists throughout the book. And the where the people they think are good end up being evil and the other way around.
