Shelf Control

Shelf Control – 22-05-19

Shelf Control is a meme run by Lisa at Bookshelf Fantasies.  It is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves.  Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up!

For more info on what Shelf Control is all about, check out Lisa’s introductory post.

Now, years later, Emma has been asked to go back to the newly re-opened Camp Nightingale. She thinks she’s laying old ghosts to rest but really she’s returning to the scene of a crime.

Because Emma’s innocence might be the biggest lie of all…


Why Do I Want to Read It?

I really enjoyed Riley Sager’s Final Girls, and I had this on pre-order almost as soon as I heard about it.  I’m not sure why I haven’r read it yet – I think that I’m a little worried that it won’t live up to my expectations, but there’s only one way to find out…

    1. Well… This is my actually second oldest unread book. My oldest was purchased on 14 June 2018 (Us Against You). I made an effort to read my oldest books a couple of years ago, before I started blogging, to clear the backlog. It was hard work, but I’ve gradually got it down to about a year…
