The police say it was suicide.
Anna says it was murder.
They’re both wrong.

One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since.

WHAT I AM READING NEXT

Goodreads Book Blurb

Clemantine Wamariya was six years old when her mother and father began to speak in whispers, when neighbors began to disappear, and when she heard the loud, ugly sounds her brother said were “thunder.” In 1994, she and her fifteen-year-old sister, Claire, fled the Rwandan massacre and spent the next six years wandering through seven African countries, searching for safety–perpetually hungry, imprisoned and abused, enduring and escaping refugee camps, finding unexpected kindness, witnessing inhuman cruelty. They did not know whether their parents were dead or alive.

When Clemantine was twelve, she and her sister were granted asylum in the United States, where she embarked on another journey–to excavate her past and, after years of being made to feel less than human, claim her individuality.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN TUESDAY TOPIC IS…

    That tagline for Let Me Lie definitely catches my interest! And I’ve been all about the thrillers lately lol. Sorry to hear The Asylum didn’t work out… 😦

    Big Little Lies definitely surprised me in a good way. I had no idea i would like that book as much as I did…

    I’m really curious about the Tom Hanks book. I love him as an actor. I’m also glad to see The Broken Girls on so many lists today because I have it on my TBR. Sorry The Asylum wasn’t for you – it sounded so promising and I love the cover. Oh well, there’s plenty of more books on the shelf!
