Okay, now it’s Thurday! All week long I’ve been a day ahead of myself. You can imagine how disappointed I was to learn that yesterday was only Wednesday. Ah well, it’s Friday eve now and that puts a little more pep in my step, and I get to share a fab book with you all!
All Your Twisted Secrets (Expected Publication Date: January 17th)
Genre: YA Thriller
This thrilling debut, reminiscent of new fan favorites like One of Us Is Lying and the beloved classics by Agatha Christie, will leave readers guessing until the explosive ending.
Welcome to dinner, and again, congratulations on being selected. Now you must do the selecting.
What do the queen bee, star athlete, valedictorian, stoner, loner, and music geek all have in common? They were all invited to a scholarship dinner, only to discover it’s a trap. Someone has locked them into a room with a bomb, a syringe filled with poison, and a note saying they have an hour to pick someone to kill … or else everyone dies.
Amber Prescott is determined to get her classmates and herself out of the room alive, but that might be easier said than done. No one knows how they’re all connected or who would want them dead. As they retrace the events over the past year that might have triggered their captor’s ultimatum, it becomes clear that everyone is hiding something. And with the clock ticking down, confusion turns into fear, and fear morphs into panic as they race to answer the biggest question: Who will they choose to die?

I presume most of you have seen The Breakfast Club? Well, imagine those kids, now imagine them being held captive by an unknown psychopath a la Saw!
In the same vein as One of Us is Lying, this delicious little YA Thriller is about a bunch of teens from all different walks of life, hiding secrets, pointing fingers, and generally being all kinds of shady.
Under the guise of an award banquet, our characters are locked in a room with a ticking bomb, and told via letter that one of them must die in order for them to be freed. The twist is, the killing must be done by another victim in the group. As time ticks away, these kids start unraveling, and eventually secrets are revealed showing us that no one in the room is innocent, and maybe one of them actually deserves to die.
All Your Twisted Secrets is such a fun read! It reminded me why I enjoy these dramatic teen Thrillers. When gossip and secrets are literally deadly, how can you not be entertained? This is a one sit read that grabs you instantly, and is impossible not to gobble up right away! Some parts were a tiny bit predictable but otherwise, I really enjoyed it.
Big thanks to Harper Collins Canada for providing this ARC in exchange for my honest review!
