WHAT ARE WE READING? Books of the Week

PRESENTED AND CURATED WEEKLY BY E. SHAVER, BOOKSELLERS

Fellow readers, we meet again. This time with a new line-up of expertly curated books by E. Shaver, Booksellers (eshaverbooks.com). It's spooky season- the perfect time for mystery and the supernatural. Get ready for some page turners!

Love in the Time of Serial Killers by Alicia Thompson: Turns out that reading nothing but true crime isn't exactly conducive to modern dating—and one woman is going to have to learn how to give love a chance when she's used to suspecting the worst.

PhD candidate Phoebe Walsh has always been obsessed with true crime. She's even analyzing the genre in her dissertation—if she can manage to finish writing it. It's hard to find the time while she spends the summer in Florida, cleaning out her childhood home, dealing with her obnoxiously good-natured younger brother, and grappling with the complicated feelings of mourning a father she hadn't had a relationship with for years.

It doesn't help that she's low-key convinced that her new neighbor, Sam Dennings, is a serial killer (he may dress business casual by day, but at night he's clearly up to something). It's not long before Phoebe realizes that Sam might be something much scarier—a genuinely nice guy who can pierce her armor to reach her vulnerable heart.

Vampires of El Norte by Isabel Canas: Isabel Canas delivers a gripping  novel that combines elements of urban fantasy and horror. As the daughter of a rancher in 1840s Mexico, Nena knows a thing or two about monsters—her home has long been threatened by tensions with Anglo settlers from the north. But something more sinister lurks near the ranch at night, something that drains men of their blood and leaves them for dead. Something that once attacked Nena nine years ago.

Believing Nena dead, Néstor has been on the run from his grief ever since, moving from ranch to ranch working as a vaquero. But no amount of drink can dispel the night terrors of sharp teeth; no woman can erase his childhood sweetheart from his mind. Follow along this gripping tale of shock and mystery.

Hide by Kiersten White:
Kiersten White's "Hide" is a thrilling novel that ventures into the realms of competition, suspense and mystery. The challenge: spend a week hiding in an abandoned amusement park and don't get caught. The prize: enough money to c hange everything.

Even though everyone is desperate to win—to seize their dream futures or escape their haunting pasts—Mack feels sure that she can beat her competitors. All she has to do is hide, and she's an expert at that. It's the reason she's alive, and her family isn't.

But as the people around her begin disappearing one by one, Mack realizes this competition is more sinister than even she imagined, and that together might be the only way to survive. Fourteen competitors. Seven days. Everywhere to hide, but nowhere to run.

Come out, come out, wherever you are.
