If your intention is to read more in the coming year, try on the captivating sequel to One of Us is Lying. In One of Us is Next, author Karen McManus offers a similar suspense story and perspective to that of Pretty Little Liars, including a mysterious someone who orchestrates a deadly game. Only this time, it’s a game of truth or dare. Taking place one year after Simon’s death, there’s a whole new set of rules for the Bayview four.
