Such a Suspenseful Read

Title: Such a Good Girl
Author: Amanda K. Morgan
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: June 20, 2017
Source: Netgalley

Riley Stone is just about perfect. (Ask anyone.)
She has a crush on her French teacher, Alex Belrose. (And she suspects he likes her, too.)
Riley has her entire life planned out. (The plan is nonnegotiable.)
She's never had a secret she couldn't keep. (Not ever.)
Riley is sure that her life is on the right track. (And nothing will change that.)
She's nothing like a regular teenager. (But she doesn't have any problem admitting that.)
Riley doesn't usually play games. (But when she does, she always wins.)
She thinks a game is about to start...
But Riley always has a plan...
And she always wins.

What I liked:
-The suspense. This novel was absolutely filled with suspense from start to finish. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time!
-The darkness of the novel. The topics it touched upon were much darker than the average contemporary.
-The plot twist. I honestly didn't see it coming.
-The writing style. There was something so lyrical about it.

What I didn't like:
-Riley! She got on my nerves from the very beginning.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it if you're looking for a different sort of contempary/thriller for the summer months!

Rating: 4/5 stars

  1. It is always interesting to me when I enjoy books like this, because I am normally a very character driven reader, but if for some reason, it always works with a suspend-thriller type book for me.

  2. This book sounds really interesting to me, but if the main character gets on your nerves I'm not sure how much I'll enjoy it because that's usually a big thing for me.

  3. This book sounds so intriguing. I don't know if I can put up with an irritating MC, though. They have to have some redeeming qualities to keep me reading. If I can get ahold of a copy from my library I may give it a try.

  4. I love plot twists I don't see coming! Not sure how I haven't heard of this one before but I may need to check it out!

  5. Wow, I really didn't know that this book was going to be a mystery!! I love dark and twisted books! I thought this was about a forbidden relationship only, so now I'm super intrigued!! Thanks for being on the tour Krystianna!!

  6. Very interesting that this is a dark read. I wouldn't have guessed that from the blurb.

    Thanks for sharing!
