The Maidens by Alex Michaelides

Ages 18+

The Maidens

From the very beginning, we know that Edward Fosca is a murderer. Of this the main character, Mariana, is certain. Fosca is a Greek tragedy professor at the Cambridge University and is loved by both his colleagues and students, especially the group of women known as The Maidens. Mariana is a group therapist who becomes obsessed with Fosca when one of the Maidens is found murdered. This thriller is twisty and a great sophomore novel to follow up The Silent Patient.

The main character doesn’t remember who she is, let alone her first name. She arrives at the train station and realizes her bag has been stolen – so she doesn’t have I.D. to help her. She does remember where she lives, however. She goes to her home, only to find a couple living there who say that it’s their home, and don’t recognize her either. Will she ever figure out who she is? This thriller gripped me from the first page to the last.

Olive by Emma Gannon

Ages 18+

Olive

Olive is very close to her best friends, but when they start to marry and have kids, she feels less connected to them. What’s more, she’s decided she has no desire to have children of her own one day. She’s absolutely sure of it. Fast paced and moving, I would recommend Gannon’s debut novel to all my friends.
