Can’t Wait Wednesday – ONE OF US IS NEXT by Karen McManus


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is ONE OF US IS NEXT by Karen McManus. Okay, so am I the only one who had no idea there was going to be a sequel to One of Us is Lying?  I don’t know how I missed this news but I totally did.  I loved all of the twists and turns in the first book of the series, so I’m very excited to pick up this new book and see where McManus takes us next.


ONE OF US IS NEXT by Karen McManus

Publication Date:  January 7, 2020


From Goodreads:

Come on, Bayview, you know you’ve missed this.

A ton of copycat gossip apps have popped up since Simon died, but in the year since the Bayview four were cleared of his shocking death, no one’s been able to fill the gossip void quite like he could. The problem is no one has the facts.

Until now.

This time it’s not an app, though—it’s a game.

Truth or Dare.

Phoebe‘s the first target. If you choose not to play, it’s a truth. And hers is dark.

Then comes Maeve and she should know better—always choose the dare.

But by the time Knox is about to be tagged, things have gotten dangerous. The dares have become deadly, and if Maeve learned anything from Bronwyn last year, it’s that they can’t count on the police for help. Or protection.

Simon’s gone, but someone’s determined to keep his legacy at Bayview High alive. And this time, there’s a whole new set of rules.

    That is one heck of a blurb! And when you see a title like that – you just know they are not talking about being the next to be served at the candy floss stall, don’t you? I hope you thoroughly enjoy this one, Suzanne:)

    I didn’t know there was going to be a sequel either. I haven’t yet read One of Us Is Lying, but it’s one I would like to read at some point. I hope this second book is just as good! Have a great weekend, Suzanne.
