Killing November by Adriana Mather
In this thriller, there’s a school completely off the grid, hidden by dense forest and surrounded by traps. There’s no electricity, no internet, and an eye-for-an-eye punishment system. Classes include everything from Knife-Throwing and Poisons to the Art of Deception and Historical Analysis. And all of the students are children of the world’s most elite strategists, training to become assassins, counselors, spies, and master impersonators.
Into this world walks November Adley, who quickly discovers that friends are few in a school where personal revelations are discouraged and competition is everything. When another student is murdered, all eyes turn to November, who must figure out exactly how she fits into the school’s bizarre strategy games before she is found guilty of the crime…or becomes the killer’s next victim.
Make sure to give this thriller a chance…you will not regret it!
The Dating Game by Kiley Roache
The Social Network gets a romantic twist in this read that explores college romance.
When a notoriously difficult class for future entrepreneurs leads to three freshmen developing the next “it” app for dating on college campuses, all hell breaks loose. Type A control freak Sara lives by her color-coordinated Post-it notes. Rich boy Braden wants out from under his billionaire father’s thumb. Scholarship student Roberto can’t afford for his grades to drop.
When the three are forced to work together in one of the university’s most difficult classes, tension rises to the breaking point, until, shockingly, the silly dating app they create proves to be the most viable project in class. Late nights of app development, interest from investors and unexpected romance are woven into a true-to-life college drama that explores what it means to really connect online and IRL.
This book explores friendships and romance and the connections that make or break us.
