In My Dreams I Hold a Knife: TikTok made me buy it! The breakout dark academia thriller everyone's talking about
About this deal
She was the least talked about character even though we had an insane amount of flashbacks where she was alive. With its compelling puzzlebox structure and delightfully ruthless cast of characters, this twisty dark academia thriller will have you flipping pages like you’re pulling an all-nighter to cram for a final. They are each distinguished well and the developing cracks in their relationships add a lot of dark, brooding suspense in an already sinister-feeling mystery.
This book kept us up reading late at night, and is perfect for those looking for a heart racing thriller!The cherry on top of this deliciously dark read is a cinematic, gut-punch of an ending—the kind of finale that feels built for the big screen, and more than makes up for any slower start that some readers may find this book to have.
In addition to my love/hate relationship with the characters, I was incredibly impressed by how atmospheric this novel was.i like ashley winstead but maybe i need to only read her romance novels because what the fuck was that? Now a 30-something living in New York, Jess has built an enviable career and life for herself, and she wants everyone to know it. Not the girl she was when she left campus, back when Heather Shelby's murder fractured everything, including the tight bond linking the six friends she'd been closest to since freshman year. Alternating between flashback chapters that take place during Jess’ time in college in the lead-up to Heather’s murder, and present-day chapters that follow the increasingly sinister events of reunion weekend, IN MY DREAMS I HOLD A KNIFE weaves an immersive tale of friendship, betrayal, love, and deadly obsession. Jessica Miller is the main character in the story and she can’t wait to show her old crew, the East House Seven, how far she’s come since their college days.
