Waiting on Wednesday: The Cheerleaders

The CheerleadersThe Cheerleaders By Kara Thomas

Genre: Young Adult, Mystery, Contemporary, Thriller
Pages: 384 pages
Release Date: July 31 2018
Publisher: Delacorte Press

Plot: There are no more cheerleaders in the town of Sunnybrook.

First there was the car accident—two girls gone after hitting a tree on a rainy night. Not long after, the murders happened. Those two girls were killed by the man next door. The police shot him, so no one will ever know why he did it. Monica’s sister was the last cheerleader to die. After her suicide, Sunnybrook High disbanded the cheer squad. No one wanted to be reminded of the girls they lost.

That was five years ago. Now the faculty and students at Sunnybrook High want to remember the lost cheerleaders. But for Monica, it’s not that easy. She just wants to forget. Only, Monica’s world is starting to unravel. There are the letters in her stepdad’s desk, an unearthed, years-old cell phone, a strange new friend at school. . . . Whatever happened five years ago isn’t over. Some people in town know more than they’re saying. And somehow Monica is at the center of it all.

There are no more cheerleaders in Sunnybrook, but that doesn’t mean anyone else is safe.


Why I Need This Book: So I have been excited for this book the moment I heard of it. I have read both books my Kara Thomas. She is an autobuy author for me. This book sounds totally up my alley. I signed up for the Blog tour for this so I really hope I get picked to be apart of it. I really want to read this book. Plus I’m a little sad because I’ll be missing the launch for this. I was really hoping to go.


Have you gotten to read this early? If so what are your thoughts on it? If not, are you guys interested in picking this book up? I would love to hear your thoughts on it. I seriously can’t wait for it to come out!

Update

Hey guys!!

I just wanted to give you guys a quick update. I’ll be away this week so I only was able to type up two posts for the week. I wanted to do more but I’ve been really tired lately.I also won’t be responding to comments until I get back. I think a part of me is feeling a little burnt out from blogging. I do try to post Monday through Friday. I think I might try to post 3 days a week. I’m not 100% sure yet on that change because I have been enjoying putting out content everyday. I just feel I’ve been forcing myself a little bit more and I haven’t been interacting as much. I am excited to take this week off. I am hoping after my trip, I’ll feel refreshed and excited to come back and blog. Thank you guys for  listening and supporting me.

Love,

Regina (Bookish In Bed)

Destiny’s Questions

What was the first book you reviewed, and what star rating did you give it?

 

1 Eleanor &amp; Park

So I honestly don’t remember the first book I ever reviewed. I’m sure I could go on goodreads and find that out. I decided to do the first book I ever reviewed on my blog. That is Eleanor and Park By Rainbow Rowell. You can find the review here.

Would you rather DNF a book, or give it a poor star rating?

I honestly rather DNF a book. I don’t like giving books poor ratings. It’s such a crappy feeling when I don’t like a book. I hate when it was something I was looking forward to.

Where do you primarily acquire your books from? (i.e. specific bookstore, library, Amazon, etc.)

I have to say I do usually order books from amazon. I will also go to Barnes and Nobles. I also really like walking to the library so I’ll go there as well.

Have you ever/would you ever name a pet after a bookish character?

I have never named my pet after a bookish character. I can see myself naming a pet after someone from a book though. I’m still not really sure who I’d name the pet after though.

Is there a song that makes you think of a specific book?

Gemina

When I first read this question I didn’t have an answer but the song from Gemina By Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff just popped into my head. I believe the song is from that one. It’s the oh yeah wanna lick your lollipop song.

What was the last book to make your mouth water with its food descriptions?

Destiny, I was just telling you that Anna and The French Kiss By Stephanie Perkins had me craving crepes. I was dying for one the other week. I still haven’t gotten one and now I want it again lol.

What was the last blog you followed? Give them a shout out!

I am so bad at this. I honestly don’t remember the last blog I followed. I am sorry 😦

Do you like BookTube? If so, who are your 5 favorite BookTubers?

Yes I do like BookTube. I do have a couple of favorite youtubers whose videos I try to watch when I go on.

Here they are:

  1. BooksandLala
  2. Emmmabooks
  3. Readbyzoe
  4. ChapterStackss
  5. Jadeyraereads

I think I’m going to do a post soon about my favorite youtubers. These are just a few of the people whose videos I try to watch when they upload. I do have others I really like as well. Plus I haven’t been watching as much lately.

Is there a bookish theme you refuse to read about, or a genre you won’t touch?

Um I don’t think so. I mean I’m willing to give everything a chance as long as it interests me. Sure there are some books I know I don’t want to read just cause I’m not into what they’re about.

Bookish candles: burn them or preserve them?

I currently own one bookish candle. I haven’t burned it yet. I feel I probably will once it gets colder out. I love burning candles.

What was the last book you hauled?

I ended up recently hauling The Last Time I Lied By Riley Sager and Somebody’s Daughter By David Bell. I went to their book signing event last Wednesday.


My Questions

  1. If you could meet any author who would you meet?
  2. What is the last book you regretted buying?
  3. If you had the chance to write a book with any author who would you pick?
  4. What book made a really big impact on you?
  5. Where is your favorite place to read?
  6. If you could turn any book into a movie, what book would you pick?
  7. Which bookish character do you look up to and why?
  8. If you could live the life as any character who would you pick and why?
  9. Would you ever get a bookish tattoo or do you already have one? What would you get?

You’re only allowed to read one more book and that’s it, what book do you pick?

June Book Haul

Hey guys!! So I have to say June ended up being a really good haul month for me. I went to Bookcon where I got most of these books and I also made some trades as well. I only purchased one other book outside of Bookcon. I think for the next couple of months I’m going to try to slow down on buying books. I have so many I collected this month and the last month. I really need to crack down and I also have a bunch of arcs from Netgalley to get to. So let’s dive in and see what I got. Continue reading “June Book Haul”

June Wrap-up

Hey guys!! I hope you all ended up having a great June. I ended up only reading 4 books in June. I think I was in a little bit of a reading slump. I didn’t have much motivation to read. I’m happy to say my July is off to a great start. One of the books I read in June ended up being a real favorite of mine so I can’t wait to talk about that more.  Now let’s see what I read in June.
