Waiting on Wednesday: Into the Water

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins 
Pub. Date: May 2, 2017



Goodreads says, "The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller and global phenomenon The Girl on the Train returns with Into the Water, her addictive new novel of psychological suspense.  A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.  Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother’s sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she’d never return.  With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.  Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath."

I don't really gravitate to psychological thrillers in the summertime, but I am very interested in this one considering how much I enjoyed The Girl on the Train. Have you guys had your eye on this book? What do you think?

  1. I haven't read Girl on the Train so I'm not at all familiar with Ms. Hawkins' writing.

    I hope you'll enjoy!

  2. I cannot wait! I already have this on hold at the library. I hope it's as good as GotT (although the movie isn't the best...it's not horrible, but it's not great).

    I keep thinking I need to sit down and write my review for Roanoke Girls, but I just don't even know where to start. Lol.

    1. Me too, Natalie! I am excited to check it out. I have heard mixed reviews for the movie. That is why I am a little late on checking it out. I really enjoyed the book though - always seems to work that way. I hear you about RG. I haven't written my review yet...sort of processing it as well. Thanks for visiting, Natalie!

  3. Working at the library, I definitely heard so many great things about Girl on a Train. I never did read it for myself, though! I hope Hawkins follows up with another great one!

    1. Yes, it's a good thriller. Not as good as Gone Girl, but still entertaining. I hope her follow-up is just as interesting. Thanks for visiting, Becky!
