20894023 Famous Last Words

Author: Katie Alender
Publisher: Point
Release Date: September 30, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Hollywood history, mystery, murder, mayhem, and delicious romance collide in this unputdownable thriller from master storyteller Katie Alender.

Willa is freaking out. It seems like she's seeing things. Like a dead body in her swimming pool. Frantic messages on her walls. A reflection that is not her own. It's almost as if someone -- or something -- is trying to send her a message.

Meanwhile, a killer is stalking Los Angeles -- a killer who reenacts famous movie murder scenes. Could Willa's strange visions have to do with these unsolved murders? Or is she going crazy? And who can she confide in? There's Marnie, her new friend who may not be totally trustworthy. And there's Reed, who's ridiculously handsome and seems to get Willa. There's also Wyatt, who's super smart but unhealthily obsessed with the Hollywood Killer.

All Willa knows is, she has to confront the possible-ghost in her house, or she just might lose her mind . . . or her life.

Acclaimed author Katie Alender puts an unforgettable twist on this spine-chilling tale of murder, mystery, mayhem -- and the movies.
Why I'm Excited:

So I almost didn't feature this book because that cover looks like amateur hour, but that synopsis sounds so amazing. I'm not obsessed with Hollywood in a want-to-move-there way, but I'll be the first to admit that I'm kind of obsessed with Hollywood. I love pretty much everything about movies and the people who make them. A serial killer who is re-creating famous movie death scenes sounds right up my alley. I'm super excited for this one, but I hope there is a cover redesign in this book's future.

  3. I haven't read a thriller in a long time, well almost since never because the closest I came was a murder-mystery and suspense from Mary Higgins Clark. But this looks really interesting. I hope you enjoy reading it when it comes out. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I actually kind of like that cover, though since seeing it, I can't un-see it. But, a killer who re-enacts famous movie murder scenes? Ohhh, mine. Why does it have to be September though? :(

  10. Yay! It's Katie Alender! I have to admit, I was a HUGE fan of Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer..and that whole "reenacting famous murders"? THAT sounds freaky. I need this.
