Summer is the perfect time to kick up your heels and settle in with a book. Whether you like steamy romances, intriguing mysteries or dashing adventures, you just can't beat relaxing with a fresh novel. Throw in some sun, sand, and waves, and you've got the ultimate recipe for a fabulous vacation for your mind, body, and soul. This summer, I'm diving into a few chilling thrillers perfect for keeping me cool while the temps continue to rise!

Allegiant by Veronica Roth
After discovering that everything they've ever known is a lie, Tris and company leave Chicago to seek the truth outside the city walls. However, all knowledge comes with a price, and Tris quickly learns that not everyone can be trusted. Even Utopia has its hidden secrets, and if Tris has learned anything, it is that secrets can destroy everything. Will Tris turn her back on the only place she's ever called home? Or will she make the ultimate sacrifice to preserve the future of all mankind? It's the epic conclusion to Veronica Roth's Divergent trilogy.
