Happy Thursday!! I feel like this has been a very popular book on bookstagram and I’ve been so excited to read it. There were other books I needed to read before I got to it. I’m slowly knocking down my tbr and I’m so proud of myself! I don’t know when my list got out of control but it did and I don’t have any regrets 😂😂😂 so many great books on my list lol. I have one more book left on my list for this month so hopefully I can read it before the mont ends. 😊 Have a great week guys! 💕💕
After taking a book hiatus..( very unplanned) I finished home before dark over the weekend!
This is my first Riley Sager book and I enjoyed all the twist and turns he threw at me. I saw this book all over the gram and figured it would be the perfect october book to read and wasn’t disappointed.
I liked how the book told the story of the present and the past it gave so much perspective and intrigue to the story. Again the twists and turns really got me, right when I think I’ve solved the mystery and it’s over something happens to throw that theory into the trash. I also enjoyed that even though it was a thriller the main character kind of ended her story on a happy note sort of (besides the stuff with her mom). As someone who gets startled by her own shadow I felt that this book wasn’t as scary 👻 as I’d pictured. I can’t wait to read more by Riley
I finished The Guest List by Lucy Foley in one whole day! It was so good I just didn’t want to put it down. I didn’t think I would squeeze one more book in before September ended but I managed and it was worth it. Synopsis: On a remote island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate the wedding of Jules Keegan and Will Slater. Will is a rising television star, handsome and charming. Jules I a smart ambitious magazine publisher. Everyone on the island has a secret. Everyone has a motive. And someone won’t leave this wedding alive… This was a true page turner! I really enjoyed the changing POV from guest of the wedding. I won’t give much away for those who haven’t read it yet. But I will say I was happy with the ending. This book was very descriptive and flowed very well. I loved the character development and if I were to rate the spookiness I’d give it a 3. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Wow 😯 this book is… I don’t think I can describe it in one word.
I just finished The Night Swim by Megan Goldin
Synopsis: After the first season of her true crime podcast became an overnight sensation and set an innocent man free, Rachel Krall is now a household name.But she’s used to being recognised for her voice, not her face. Which makes it all the more unsettling when she finds a note on her car windshield, addressed to her, begging for help. The small town of Neapolis is being torn apart by a devastating rape trial. The town’s golden boy, a swimmer destined for Olympic greatness, has been accused of raping a high school student, the beloved granddaughter of the police chief.
😡🤬🤯☹️😭 (these sum up all of my feelings about this book.
Besides the the topic being rape I really enjoyed this book. The mystery of putting together all of the pieces and wondering what really happened was enjoyable. The story of both women is very gut wrenching but I liked how it switches between two women with similar experiences that will be forever linked to a small town. The ending threw me for a loop. If you’ve been thinking about adding this to your TBR and don’t mind heavy topics such as rape and suicide then I suggest picking this one up.
Synopsis: Alison Green desperate valedictorian wannabe, agrees to produce her schools production of. Midsummers Night’s Dream. That’s her first big mistake. The second is accidentally saying yes to a date with her oldest best friend, Jack, even though she’s crushing on Charolette. Allison must cope with the misadventures that befall the play if she’s going to survive this year
I really enjoyed this book! It was so funny and a light read. I enjoyed how the main character had a coming of age moment at the end of the book. She spent the whole year really trying to figure out who she was, while being a senior in high school. And let’s be honest senior year of high school is not always very easy. The book flowed very well and kept me highly entertained throughout the whole thing. I would definitely recommend this if you want something light.
I am a huge cozy mystery fan, so I couldn’t wait to read A Spell for Trouble by Esme Addison.
Synopsis: Aleksandra Daniels hasn’t set foot in the quiet seaside town of Bellamy Bay, North Carolina in over twenty years. Ever since her mother’s tragic death, her father has mysteriously forbidden her from visiting her aunt and cousins. But on a whole Alex accepts an invitation to visit her estranged relatives.
Guys this book was really good, I finished it in three days! I couldn’t put it down, the story telling was amazing. The descriptions made everything seem real and totally sucked me in. I had a picture of what everything and everyone looked like in my head. This was a very fun read and I can not wait for the second book in this series. Thank you
I got a chance to read All Our Summers by Holly Chamberlin.
While the cover of this is very cute and you think it’s going to be an interesting read about summer and the memories two sisters have. It turned out to be the complete opposite.
This one was really hard for me to finish, I couldn’t connect with the characters or story line. There seemed to be unnecessary drama and one sister was way more dramatic and confrontational then I expected. I did looked interest. It did pick up again for me at the end when they had a break through in their relationship. This book was also extremely long, which made everything really drawn out.
