BBAW Day Four: A Book I Think Everyone Should Read

Today's Topic:
One Book I Think Everyone Needs To Read
Though I could give you a list of books I that I think deserve more recognition, but I decided to pick the one that I think deserves it the most:

Envy by Gregg Olsen
Murder is such a dirty word…

New York Times bestselling adult true crime author Gregg Olsen makes his YA debut with Empty Coffin, a gripping new fiction series for teens based on ripped-from-the-headlines stories…with a paranormal touch.

Crime lives--and dies--in the deceptively picture-perfect town of Port Gamble (aka “Empty Coffin”), Washington. Evil lurks and strange things happen--and 15-year-olds Hayley and Taylor Ryan secretly use their wits and their telepathic “twin-sense” to uncover the truth about the town's victims and culprits.

Envy, the series debut, involves the mysterious death of the twins' old friend, Katelyn. Was it murder? Suicide? An accident? Hayley and Taylor are determined to find out--and as they investigate, they stumble upon a dark truth that is far more disturbing than they ever could have imagined.

Based on the shocking true crime about cyber-bullying, Envy will take you to the edge--and push you right over.

   Gregg Olsen is just an amazing author! From beginning to end he amazed me! This is so different then the usual YA fare... it's written in the style of true crime and it's so suspenseful throughout!  I loved it!
Read my review!


  1. Ooo! I want to read this! It sounds really good. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

  2. Agreed! I love Gregg Olsen and Envy is a really good book! Glad you picked it, Benji!!! :) I am so excited to read Betrayal!!!

  3. Hi Benji! It was nice to meet you over at Shelia's. I loved my visit to Port Townsend. My brother lives in Suquamish. I have not read this book yet.

  4. That was a great book! I approve of your recommendation! It's pretty upsetting that it was inspired by a true story. ):
