My last book of 2020 was The Tourist Attraction by Sara Morgenthaler.
Synopsis: When Gram Barnett named his diner The Tourist Trap, he meant it as a joke. Now he’s singing reindeer dogs to an endless parade of resort visitors who he couldn’t be bothered with. Two weeks in Alaska is the top item for Zoey Caldwells bucket list. An act of kindness brings Zoey into Grams world and she finds there more to the grumpy local than meets the eye.
I absolutely enjoyed this book so much! It was a great read to finish the year with. It gave me all the feels. Do I think it was predictable, yes did I enjoy that, absolutely. I felt like this was a hallmark movie but in boom form. It gave me romance, comedy and at some points I said “I knew that would happen”. This was a total booksta made me do it and I have no regrets. I didn’t realize this was a series so now I’ll have to read the others to see what happens next with these crazy kids!
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
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.
