Happy Sunday, friends! After a very long and hectic week, I was able to sit down and relax a bit today… get some blog posts scheduled, reviews written, and books read! I hope you guys had a good weekend. Unbelievably, it’s already Sunday again, meaning it’s time for yet another Standalone Sunday post! Let’s see what awesome standalone’s were recommended to us this week!
Standalone Sunday is a feature created by yours truly where each Sunday we will feature a standalone book (not part of a series) that you loved or would recommend! There’s tons of focus on books that are part of a series… I thought it’d be nice to focus on some standalone novels, too!
Feel free to join in on this weekly feature by creating your own Standalone Sunday post! And you’re more than welcome to use the image I created. Link to your post in the comments below or make sure you link back to this post so I can check it out and add you down below!
The Row by J.R. Johansson
A death sentence. A family torn apart. One girl’s hunt for the truth.
Seventeen-year-old Riley Beckett is no stranger to prison. Her father is a convicted serial killer on death row who has always maintained that he was falsely accused. Riley has never missed a single visit with her father. She wholeheartedly believes that he is innocent.
Then, a month before the execution date, Riley’s world is rocked when, in an attempt to help her move on, her father secretly confesses to her that he actually did carry out the murders. He takes it back almost immediately, but she cannot forget what he’s told her. Determined to uncover the truth for her own sake, she discovers something that will forever change everything she’s believed about the family she loves.
I read this book last month and I really enjoyed it. It had been sitting on my NetGalley shelf forever, waiting for me to read it, but I was hesitant and procrastinated. The cover is what drew me into this novel to begin with, but that’s not all this story has going for it. It has emotion, mystery, suspense… and honestly, I found myself guessing and guessing throughout the book, and never could figure it out! I highly recommend this book to you guys! If you stay on the lookout, my review for this standalone will be posted sometime this week! I’m so excited for it, too. 🙂
