I love to read.

And I love a psychological thriller.

Since becoming a full time mama part time homesteader I don’t always have as much time to read as I’d like.  I’ll read a variety of books I don’t discriminate.  Every few weeks the kids and I head to the library and pick out some new reads for the month.  A way to beat the heat and get free books.

Our library has a summer readers program offering incentives for kids and adults to spend their summer reading.  At first I thought I was to old for a summer reading program but have found it’s encouraged me to read books that I normally would not have picked up.

From the author of Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins, allures her readers with Into the Water, a psychological thriller that will keep you continually turning the page.  Ending with a twist that is surely going to leave you surprised.

The story is set in Beckford, a community along the river in Northern England, known for its historical tales of witchcraft.  Known as the Drowning Pool, “the suicide spot.”  The mysterious deaths and suicides that occur at the Drowning Pool, draw Danielle Abbott to begin writing about the mystery surrounding the small town.  Her obsession with the Drowning Pool is what ultimately leads to her own mysterious death.

Paula Hawkins takes you on a journey full of twists and turns.  Similar to The Girl on The Train I had a hard time liking the characters.

If you are looking for a quick psychological thriller to read I would suggest Into the Water.  It keeps you turning the pages, wondering what will happen next.  The end of the book leaves you questioning it long after you’ve set it down.

Happy Reading!
