Hey guys! I’m not sure what happened this January but I didn’t end up reading as many books as I would have liked. Thankfully in the last 2 weeks I ended up squeezing two books in. I didn’t really enjoy the books as much as I would have liked. I hope that February ends up being a better month for me. Now let’s see what I read in January. Continue reading “January Wrap-up” →
Defending Jacob By William Landay
Genre: Fiction, Mystery, Thriller, Suspense
Pages: 448 pages
Published: September 3rd 2013
Plot: Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney for two decades. He is respected. Admired in the courtroom. Happy at home with the loves of his life: his wife, Laurie, and their teenage son, Jacob.
Then Andy’s quiet suburb is stunned by a shocking crime: a young boy stabbed to death in a leafy park. And an even greater shock: The accused is Andy’s own son—shy, awkward, mysterious Jacob.
Andy believes in Jacob’s innocence. Any parent would. But the pressure mounts. Damning evidence. Doubt. A faltering marriage. The neighbors’ contempt. A murder trial that threatens to obliterate Andy’s family.

Hey guys!! It’s time for another Down the TBR Hole which was created by Lia @Lost In A Story! Wow I am up to my 11th post of this. My TBR continues to grow. I added a couple of new books in the last couple days. Hopefully I can get rid of some more this week. Let’s dive in and see!
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
The fact that I will be repeating this process every week means that I have to keep track of where I ended and where I’m going to continue. E.g. in week one I do book 1 – 5, in week two book 6 – 10, and so on, until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR. Continue reading “Down The TBR Hole #11” →
