Dana Lee over at Book Riot compiled a list of 20 must-read time travel books, and I’m thrilled to have that they included The Shining Girls, together with How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu, This Is How you lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar’s and Max Gladstone, and Tara Sim’s TimeKeeper, among others.
What if time travel fell into the hands of a criminal? The Shining Girls is the story of serial killer named Harper Curtis who stumbles upon an abandoned house in Depression-era Chicago that allows him to travel in time. He chooses his victims and visits them at different times of their lives before returning for the kill. Kirby survives Harper’s attack and, along with a former homicide reporter, tries to unravel the mystery before anyone else dies. This book is wild, W-I-L-D. There’s a lot of violence, so it might not be for everyone, but it’s such an interesting take on the time travel story.
Thanks to @holo.reader for the appropriately sparkly photo of the UK edition of The Shining Girls.
