The Telling by Alexandra Sirowy + GIVEAWAY | Blog Tour

I am super excited to be a part of the blog tour for The Telling by Alexandra Sirowy!

The Telling is about a girl named Lana, who finds her life turned upside-down after mysterious murders begin to occur in her small hometown. Everything she knew has disappeared, and Lana is now forced to cope with the fact that her life after is anything but ordinary.

You can read the official synopsis below!

A chilling new novel about a girl who must delve into her past if she wants to live long enough to have a future when a series of murders that are eerily similar to the dark stories her brother used to tell start happening in her hometown.

Lana used to know what was real. That was before, when her life was small and quiet. Her golden stepbrother, Ben was alive. She could only dream about bonfiring with the populars. Their wooded island home was idyllic, she could tell truth from lies, and Ben’s childhood stories were firmly in her imagination.

Then came after.

After has Lana boldly kissing her crush, jumping into the water from too high up, living with nerve and mischief. But after also has horrors, deaths that only make sense in fairy tales, and terrors from a past Lana thought long forgotten. Love, blood, and murder.

Pre-Order The Telling from AMAZON | BARNES AND NOBLE !

Doesn't this book sound absolutely amazing?! I'm slowly branching my way into reading more YA thrillers, and I knew that The Telling would be a great book to read. I especially love The Telling, because even after reading the synopsis, I'm still not sure what to expect! Everything is a mystery, and I love going into intense books with little to no information about what is occurring in that universe (also known as "going in blind").
