Final Girls
Final Girls | Riley Sager
Each girl survived an unthinkable horror. Now someone wants them dead... They were called The Final Girls. Three young women who survived unimaginable horror. Three victims of separate massacres grouped together by the press. Three strangers bound by similar traumas. Lisa. Quincy. Samantha. When something terrible happens to Lisa, put-together Quincy and volatile Sam finally meet. Each one influences the other. Each one has dark secrets. And after the bloodstained fingers of the past reach into the present, each one will never be the same.

Nope. This one was just not for me (and that's the first of the 4 of Riley Sager's books I've read so far that I've said that about). It took me a very long time to even be remotely interested in the story because every single character is unlikable...and weird (as in, the murderer could have been absolutely anyone and I wouldn't have been surprised). The ending was better than I thought it would be, considering. Still just an okay story though.

TheLudicReader This is the only one I've read by this author and I haven't been inclined to read anything else. 4d
kplovesbooks @TheLudicReader I can see why! If this had been my first of his I would have been the same. I hope you'll give him another try at some point. I highly recommend the tagged one; it's my favorite of his and a really special book. 4d

Like a salt n vinegar crisps and chocolate, thrillers are my comfort read and this ticked all the boxes. It dipped a little in the middle & it didn‘t live up to my expectations after Home Before Dark but still a good solid thriller. 👍

Slasher films are so 1980. Slasher books however, now that is the mood for 2022. I finished this book in a day! The pacing was perfect, the suspense was there, and you never knew who you could trust. Loved this!

I have yet to be disappointed by Riley Sager. He kind of just swooped in out of no where and took us all by surprise. He writes the kind of thrillers I thoroughly enjoy.

As a fan of horror, the cliche yet iconic final girl trope has always been my favourite. A “final girl” refers to the last girl left alive to confront the killer, and hopefully live to tell the story. I jumped at the chance to read a book specifically about these girls, and i dont regret it at all. the constant plot twists and shocking revelations had me hooked until the very end. Lots of scenes scary enough to only be read in a well-lit room!

For fans of slashers🔪🩸- these are definitely on theme!

One is dead. One is hiding. The other can‘t remember.

You guys this book had my mind REELING. This novel follows Quincy after a life altering trauma and her struggle through recovery. Her life is upended when an unexpected guest arrives at her front door intending to dig up Quinn's past. The ending of this book caught me off guard and was a bit of a let down. Of the two potential suspects I had in mind, the actual killer was disappointing. Still a great read!

FINAL GIRLS. To be a survivor. This book has me left with a love hate relationship after reading this. The first 30 chapters were dragged out. I kept thinking, “Good Lord just get to the point already.” It didn‘t really have me hooked wanting to know more. It had me rather annoyed. The last 10 chapters were the good parts. The unfolding of everything and it all came into place. The ending wasn‘t what I was expecting- in a good way. 3 out of 5 ⭐️

I read this one because Riley Sager was throwing some shade when Grady Hendrix‘s new book came out. And I have to say, he should have kept his mouth shut, this one is awful. Is it s spoiler to say this is the dumbest twist ending I have ever read? I‘m glad this wasn‘t my first Riley Sager or I wouldn‘t have read another.

Sorry Sager, Grady did it way better. 👎🏻

This is my second read by Riley Sager and it did not disappoint. I read this as a Buddy Read for reading Ravelry. A survivor of a horrific multiple murder finds out that another survivor of another murder has been found dead. A third survivor of another event reappears and visits the first survivor. This read really kept me on my toes guessing what happened.

Maybe it‘s the audiobook narration. Maybe it‘s the book itself. I don‘t know. What I do know is that at the 49% mark I‘m bored stiff and wishing the mass-killers had done a better job cleaning up after themselves so there were no “final girls”. My 1st Riley Sager and likely my last.

DGRachel @Megabooks I think it‘s his first, so maybe later novels are better? I do actually own a later book. I just haven‘t decided if I‘m ever going to read it now. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1y
Megabooks I enjoyed Home Before Dark. The Last Time I Lied and Survive the Night were picks, but not as good HBD. Final Girls and Lock Every Door were not good IMO. 1y
Megabooks If you‘re looking for a mystery, he‘s not good at that. He doesn‘t leave clues very well, but if you look at it as an off the wall, improbable thriller, his books are more enjoyable. 1y

The second half of the book is strong with a twist I did but see coming however, the first half was a bit of a slog. Ultimately, entertaining enough but this is likely a book I won‘t be re-visiting.

This was a reread for me, so I remembered some of the plot points, but others I had forgotten, which was amazing. I fell in love with Riley Sager a year ago and I find that my love for his books still runs very deep. He has an amazing way of blending shock value and lightness to his books. Highly recommend!!

The story unfolds slowly yet moves quickly - really enjoyed this take on the final girl story - it takes place after the event -flashbacks tell the back story. The movie (not based on the book) is a really good concept - teens from present day end up in an 80s slasher movie - if you like horror comedy you might enjoy this. 😊

Still on this Riley Sager jag. Set in 2 time lines the present and the past when Quincy‘s friends are all murdered at a creepy cabin in the woods and she is the sole survivor. She is one of the 3 famous Final Girls who are all over the news and TV. The police never truly believe Quincy‘s account because she has blank spots in her memory. Lots of surprising plot twists. Loved this one.

When it comes to thrillers I prefer them to be fast paced or at least not take so long for suspense to amp up. For the first 2/3 of the book I was dangerously close to being bored. I feel like this would have made a better movie than book.

#20in4 - 9 hours so far. Don‘t think I‘ll get 20 in but I‘m happy to have at least finished this book

Quincy is a final girl: lone survivor after a horror filled night stole 5 of her friends while on vacation.

Lisa survived a similar situation when 9 sorority sisters were murdered, and Sam survived an attack while on night shift at an inn.

Sam is thrust into Quincy‘s life after Lisa is found dead... Up until Sam‘s arrival, Quincy had only trusted her almost-fiancé Jeff and officer Coop, who had saved her.

Is there any reason not to trust Sam?

5feet.of.fury Loved this one! The trauma responses, the Wild Turkey, the campy slasher plot! *chef‘s kiss* 2y
