iBooks: Discover New Authors

This Summer Apple iBooks have been promoting a handful of authors that they have recently discovered and loved. I'm always looking for new books to read and am not the type of person who likes to stick to the same author so was very excited to delve in to some of iBooks' new faves.


I downloaded 'We Were Liars' by E. Lockhart and 'The Good Girl' by Mary Kubica and absolutely loved them both.

We Were Liars is about the upper class Sinclair family who own holiday homes (and by homes I mean mansions) on Beechwood Island and spend their Summers there. Harris Sinclair is the Grandfather and head of the family, he has three daughters: Carrie, Bess and Penny. However, the story focuses on the Sinclair girls' eldest children: Johnny, Mirren and Cadence and their family friend Gat. In the book, Cadence struggles to remember what happened to her a couple
of Summers ago in an accident which is surrounded by secrets. After returning to Beechwood Island, her memories start to return and her realisations are shocking for both her and the reader. If you like books with a gripping storyline and an outrageous, climatic ending you need to read We Were Liars.

The Good Girl is an intense thriller following the abduction of Mia Dennett. The book is written from the perspective of three characters: Mia's abductor- Colin Thatcher; Mia's Mother Eve and Detective Gabe, who is working to find Mia. The chapters also flip between before and after Mia is found. Even though Mia returns home to the Dennett's she is a completely different person with no memory of what happened to her. However, when she does finally begin to remember she wishes she hadn't. The Good Girl is one of those books that's impossible to put down and, like We Were Liars, the climax is one you won't forget.

Even if you aren't an iBook/eBook user and prefer hard copies (that's another blog post!!) I recommend getting your hands on these books in whatever format is to your liking! Leave a comment and let me know if  you have discovered any of iBook's new authors or if you have read/would like to read We Were Liars and The Good Girl.
