*Many thanks to the publishers for my Netgalley review copy*

About the book:

Each girl survived an unthinkable horror. Now someone wants them dead…

They were the victims of separate massacres. Three strangers bound by similar traumas grouped together by the press.

When something terrible happens to Lisa, put-together Quincy and volatile Sam finally meet. Each one influences the other. Each one has dark secrets. And after the bloodstained fingers of the past reach into the present, each one will never be the same.

Final Girls is out in July 2017 but you can preorder your copy by clicking HERE.

My thoughts:

Final Girls is a book that’s being touted as one of the psych thrillers to watch out for in 2017, and I’m sure that if you enjoy these kinds of books then you love this on. Hell, I read a ton of these books, so you’d think that I’d be raving right?! Sadly not.

Don’t get me wrong, Final Girls has all of the ingredients needed to make a decent psychological thriller, but for me, it just didn’t fit together the way I was hoping.

Final Girls is the title given to those who survive a massacre, who walk out when nobody else does, who live to tell the tale. In this case, enter Quincy, Sam and Lisa. Each one of these girls survived something horrific, and the reader is given glimpses into their nightmare experiences.

Quincy is essentially the main character. Surviving Pine Cottage, she has taken refuge in her baking blog. Unexpectedly, Samantha Boyd shows up after being off the radar completely. Just in time to deal with the fallout from the The events surrounding 3rd Final Girl, Lisa.

And that’s where I will stop describing it. In the interest of honesty, I had early suspicions which were confirmed as I kept reading. While this didn’t deter me, it made me less inclined to care for the characters if that makes sense?!

FinL Girls is twisty, there’s no doubt about that. It would make an interesting movie, I can see it translating to cinema quite easily I think! I have seen absolute rave reviews for this book, and though it didn’t really grab me 100%, I can see this one being popular next year.

If you like psych thrillers give this one a go! I’ll be keeping an eye on this one, I reckon it will be a hit!

  1. I found that The Girl On The Train ws very much the same. I didn’t get what all the fuss was but I did think it would translate so much better on screen. It’s a shame about this one. The cover is great. Would have reeled me in lol.
