The Dead List by Jennifer L. Armentrout is now officially out in paperback! It was originally released on Wattpad for free, but if you’re like me you’ll want to have a physical copy =)
The Dead List is a YA thriller novel filled with lots of suspense. If you were a fan of JLA’s Till Death or Don’t Look Back then this is right up your alley. Read the full blurb below.
It’s Ella’s senior year of high school and she and her best friend Linds plan to make it the best year ever. At Brock Cochran’s end of summer pool party, the girls vow to have as much fun as possible before they head off to different colleges next fall. But when Ella is mysteriously attacked on her way home from the party, everything changes. Ella’s carefree senior year plans disintegrate as she finds herself at the center of an attempted murder investigation.
Ella tries to move on, but her attacker isn’t done yet. He shows himself in the form of horrifying signs and symbols: a clown mask strewn on her bed, a dead bird in her backpack, a shadow moving past her window in the night. And as the weeks pass, it turns out that Ella isn’t the only one being tormented.
With the help of an old flame, Jensen Carver, and her friends and family, Ella tries to attain some sense of normalcy, but she can’t seem to shake the feeling that there’s a dark pattern hidden in the killer’s every move. Suddenly, even those in her innermost circle seem suspicious. In her seemingly safe West Virginia town, Ella starts to wonder who she can trust.
Here’s my review of the book:
4.5☆ This is such an intense book! I loved the many twists and turns along the way and the constant suspense of this book. I can’t even imagine being in Ella’s shoes and having to go through all that she does. She’s really strong to be able to overcome all that she has and still remain the same nice girl that she is. I love Jensen and everything he does for her. He’s a sweet, caring, and funny guy who just wants to protect Ella from all the bad things that happen in her life. The storyline was just so good! It kept me sucked in the whole time and it was really hard to put down. I wanted to know what was going to happen next and who the bad guy was. I’m not always a fan of the then and now stuff, as well as not knowing a lot about the characters pasts up front, but it worked in this book. It was really just a wonderful read =) This was my second time reading The Dead List and I loved it just as much. I read it on Wattpad first and I’m super excited to be able to have a paperback copy of it. I liked knowing what was going to happen already so that I could catch little things that I missed the first time around.
