Television shows, the news, viral YouTube videos, the endless catalog of memes to laugh at. It’s a relentless stream of technology. Maybe it’s occurred to you to disconnect for a time. Our suggestion: read a book! Here’s a list of 2019 releases that are worth your time.

A suspense novel that follows Jessica Ferris and her participation in a study on ethics. The premise is simply to answer a few questions for some quick cash. But Dr. Lydia Shields’s questions take a more sinister turn leaving Jess paranoid. Definitely a perfect book for those looking for a good thriller.

Sisters Grace, Lia, and Sky, live on the island with just their mother and father, whom they call King. One day he disappears and their whole lives are turned upside down.
