We're always in the mood for a good thriller here in the Living Book Club, and October feels like the perfect time to cozy up and get a little spooked with a great read. Jean Hanff Korelitz's "You Should Have Known" came out just yesterday in paperback and it is sharply observant, and filled with moments you won't see coming. Most importantly, it gives you a fantastic reason to head to your local bookstore to pick up a copy.

FROM THE PUBLISHER:

Grace Reinhart Sachs is living the only life she ever wanted for herself, devoted to her husband -- a pediatric oncologist at a major cancer hospital -- their young son, Henry, and the patients she sees in her therapy practice. Grace is also the author of the forthcoming "You Should Have Known," a book in which she castigates women for not valuing their intuition and calls upon them to pay attention to their first impressions of men.

But weeks before the book is published, a chasm opens in her own life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.

One of the best parts about a thriller is getting to talk about all of those "can you believe it?!" pages with your friends, which is why we're giving away five copies of this book to one lucky reader to share with their book club. Comment below between now and October 17 for a chance to win. Please see official rules here.

Don't forget to let us know if you start reading along, and let us know what you think as the plot thickens!

I would LOVE a new book to share with my book club! I ALWAYS love a thriller, a book that lets your own imagination think of even MORE situations that will give you a good kind of scare, that you are hoping for from a really good book, which this sounds like it will completely live up too! Thanks, J.P.
