WoW #25 - Very Bad Things by Susan McBride

 Very Bad Things by Susan McBride book cover

Very Bad Things by Susan McBride


Expected publication: October 14th 2014

Genres: Contemporary; Young Adult; Mystery/Thriller


Add to Goodreads


Katie never thought she'd be the girl with the popular boyfriend. She also never thought he would cheat on her-but the proof is in the photo that people at their boarding school can't stop talking about. Mark swears he doesn't remember anything. But Rose, the girl in the photo, is missing, and Mark is in big trouble. Because it looks like Rose isn't just gone…she's dead.

Maybe Mark was stupid, but that doesn't mean he's a killer.

Katie needs to find out what really happened, and her digging turns up more than she bargained for, not just about Mark but about someone she loves like a sister: Tessa, her best friend. At Whitney Prep, it's easy to keep secrets…especially the cold-blooded kind.


Why does this cover remind me of True Blood? *shrugs* I have no idea how my brain works either! Then I spotted Charlaine Harris's name on the cover, and I didn't feel so bad.

Moving on quickly. I’ve been slipping back into my old Fantasy/Sci-Fi staples lately. I intended to read a lot more contemporary in 2014, but it hasn’t really worked out too well. Then I saw Very Bad Things cover. A grave full of rose petals for a contemporary mystery/thriller, and a potential murderous ex-boyfriend on the loose? You’ve definitely sparked my curiosity!


What new releases are you waiting for?

  3. It reminds me of True Blood too! I think it's because of the title and my brain tricked itself in singing "I'm gonna do real bad things to you..."

    Anyway, it sounds like an interesting read!

  22. This sounds good!! I can see why it would remind you of True Blood, especially if the book covers were photos rather than the drawings they were. Great pick!!
