Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Fiction
Pages: 368 pages
Release Date: May 21 2019
Publisher: Graydon House

Plot: The perfect home. The perfect family. The perfect lie.

Jane Harris lives in a sparkling home in an oceanfront gated community in Orange County. It’s a place that seems too beautiful to be touched by sadness. But exactly one year ago, Jane’s oldest daughter, Mary, died in a tragic accident and Jane has been grief-stricken ever since. Lost in a haze of anti-depressants, she’s barely even left the house. Now that’s all about to change.

It’s time for Jane to reclaim her life and her family. Jane’s husband, David, has planned a memorial service for Mary and three days later, their youngest daughter, Betsy, graduates high school. Yet as Jane reemerges into the world, it’s clear her family has changed without her. Her husband has been working long days—and nights—at the office. Her daughter seems distant, even secretive. And her beloved Mary was always such a good girl—dutiful and loving. But does someone know more about Mary, and about her last day, than they’ve revealed?

The bonds between mothers and daughters, and husbands and wives should never be broken. But you never know how far someone will go to keep a family together…

Why I Need This Book: So a couple of years ago I got the arc of Kaira Rouda book, Best Day Ever. I ended up really enjoying that book a lot. It wasn’t what I was expecting. So when I heard she was coming out with another thriller, I got excited. I have been waiting for this book for a while now. I currently have an e-arc of it. I would like to get to it before next week. I’m not sure I will because I have a busy week ahead of me but I will try. I’m really interested to see what I end up thinking about this one.


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

Book Review: The Sun is Also a Star By Nicola Yoon

Yoon_9780553496680_jkt_all_r1.inddThe Sun Is Also a Star By Nicola Yoon

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Fiction
Pages: 384 pages
Published: November 1st 2016
Publisher: Delacorte Press
My Rating: 2 out of 5 Stars

Synopsis: Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true? Continue reading “Book Review: The Sun is Also a Star By Nicola Yoon”

I did add some non-thrillers because I do need to switch it up every once in a while. So let’s dive in and see what I’m going to be reading! Continue reading “My May TBR”

March & April Book Haul

Hey guys! It’s time for another book haul! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a haul. I have been trying to buy less books this year. I recently got rid of a bunch and then I realized I still had plenty that I haven’t read. So now I’m trying to get more books from the library. I think in the future I will post my library hauls because those are posts and videos I enjoy watching. I really only bought 2 of these books. The other ones were trades I ended up making with my friends. I am happy because these are all books I really wanted to read. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “March & April Book Haul”

OWLS Magical Readathon Wrap-up

Hey guys! I honestly can’t believe April is already over and we are on our 2nd day in May. I swear these months are just flying by. It’s crazy to me. Anyway, in April I ended up participating in OWLS Magical Readathon. I did end up switching some books because I didn’t like a couple I picked. Some of the books I read I loved and a couple I really didn’t like at all. I ended up reading 10 out of 12 of the categories. I feel if I ended up enjoying a couple of the books more I probably could have got in another book or 2. I am super excited to say that I did pass all the OWLS for my career which is Auror. I am excited to do the next readathon. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “OWLS Magical Readathon Wrap-up”

Synopsis: Indulge your vices in the City of Sin, where a sinister street war is brewing and fame is the deadliest killer of them all…

On the quest to find her missing mother, prim and proper Enne Salta became reluctant allies with Levi Glaisyer, the city’s most famous con man.

Why I Need This Book: Well last year I read Ace of Shades and ended up falling in love with the series. It ended up being such a fun and exciting read. Well finally the sequel is out in a week and I can’t wait for you to read it. I was lucky enough to get an e-arc of it. It was really good. I am hoping to have a review for it up on Friday. So look out for that. Prepare for a wild ride.


Hot Dog GirlHot Dog Girl By Jennifer Dugan

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, LGBT, Romance
Pages: 320 pages
Release Date: April 30 2019
Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

Plot: Elouise (Lou) Parker is determined to have the absolute best, most impossibly epic summer of her life. There are just a few things standing in her way:

* She’s landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog.
* Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou’s never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after.
* Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who’s always been up for anything, suddenly isn’t when it comes to Lou’s quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou’s scheme to get close to Nick.
* And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland–ever–unless she can find a way to stop it from closing.

Jennifer Dugan’s sparkling debut coming-of-age queer romance stars a princess, a pirate, a hot dog, and a carousel operator who find love–and themselves–in unexpected people and unforgettable places.

Why I Need This Book: So this book was an automatic add to the TBR when I saw the cover. A girl dressed up as a giant hot dog, sign me up. Then I read the plot and it seems it takes place at an amusement park which I am always down for. This just sounds like a fun fluffy read. I am here for it.


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

Top Ten Tuesday: (First Ten) Books I Reviewed

Hey guys!!! It’s time again for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is (First Ten) Books I Reviewed. So the prompt says it does not have to be formal reviews. It can be a couple sentences. It also can be from a retailer site or goodreads. So goodreads does show you the books you’ve reviewed but it doesn’t show you in the order you’ve reviewed. it. So I thought it would be fun to see what were the first 10 book reviews I posted on my blog. I think that would be a fun trip down memory lane. So let’s dive in.

Also I am sorry about this post going up so late in the day. I just purchased My Time At Portia and it’s taken over my life. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: (First Ten) Books I Reviewed”
