  1. Yes to summer camps! They can either be cozy and fun, or scary and mysterious as the camp was in THE LAST TIME I LIED, which I absolutely adored, by the way. I definitely want to read THE UNWANTED GUEST, and part of the reason is that it’s set in a hotel – I just love any environment in mystery novels that’s sort of closed off from the world in some way.Fantastic list! 🙂
