Social Creature by Tara Isabella Burton (2018)

This was so refreshing after all the tepid thrillers I’ve been reading lately. Louise is a late-twenty-something in New York City who longs to be on the inside but doesn’t believe she’ll ever measure up. Then she meets Lavinia, a quintessential It girl, and is drawn into her glam world. With a nod to The Talented Mr. Ripley, Burton delves into what kind of person might become a murderer, and what they might do afterward to cover up their crime. Louise isn’t necessarily likable–no one in this book is, really, except maybe Lavinia’s little sister–but she is relatable. I tore through this in one day. For once, a thriller that actually thrills!
