Marty is in his room smoking pot and reading a picture book. He hears a mysterious whisper suggesting he go for a walk. He is disoriented and cries out, "You think I'm a puppet, huh?... I'm the boss of my own brain so give it up!" However he relents and goes for a walk. I am a huge fan of Sarah Alderson and was extremely excited to read this. The cover drew me in as did the synopsis, both pointing to a read that would be right up my street and had the hallmarks of all my favourite thrillers.
Even better than The Stalker, I can't recommend this book highly enough. The best psychological thriller I've read this year and sure to be a contender for my book of the year.

The storyline isn't too drawn out and I loved the fast pace of this book. I read it in under 24hrs which is quite the achievement when I've been struggling to finish a book this year!.Sitterson watches the video feed from Kyoto as the schoolgirls unite against the Japanese Floaty Girl and sing an incantation that defeats the ghost and reduces her spirit to a frog in a bowl. Hadley, Sitterson and Wendy Lin commiserate on Japan's failure ("Zero fatalities, total wash") which leaves North America as the only viable scenario for a successful ritual. Life starts out rough for Rose and her sister Daisy, both born in a trailer park to drug addicted parents in a no named town in Missouri. Having little shot at making it in the world, Rose is enamored when she meets a wealthy, charismatic man named Ryan who sweeps her off her feet bringing her from rags to riches. She thought she scored the most eligible bachelor in Manhattan and that all of the surrounding women were envious. But were they? Or was Rose naive to what their side eyes and side conversations were really about? In an effort to hide his crimes, Ryan frames his wife as a mentally ill murderer. Finding friendship and allies in unlikely places, Rose sets out on a journey of revenge, one that will right all her wrongs. this one even had some really good twists that i wasn't expecting (but also keep in mind that i go out of my way not to try and guess what will happen in books. it puts me in a bad mood, so i try very hard to not try to solve things) also there were some things that in the first half i had like criticism and the author completely overturned those in the second half so i liked that a lot, tbh, and the jumps between timelines were really well done.

The Cabin in the Woods is the first of Sarah Alderson's book's I've read, and it was everything I love in a murder mystery. There was only one person's point of view in this book, but it spanned across both her past an present, with the past working its way up to the present, so reader's are filled in on her past as the book comes to its climax. It wasn't 100% what I thought it would be when I went into it, but it was great nonetheless! As Dana fights to escape the submerged RV and swims to the surface, the underground technicians celebrate. Truman asks how the ritual can be complete when the footage shows Dana is still alive. Hadley explains that the Virgin's death is optional, so long as she outlives the others and suffers in the ordeal. Alderson is also a screenwriter, and it shows in this book. It has a past/present narrative, which isn’t always something I love, but in this book it works really well, as we slowly find out why Rose is in hiding.
