Hey guys! So 2019 has been a wild year for me. I am bummed to say I feel I spent a bit of the portion of the year in a reading slump. I did end up reading but I felt a lot of the books I wasn’t a fan of or took me longer to get through than normal. I am happy to say December is so far looking to be a good month. I have finished 2 books. I slowed down the last couple of days because I just went away. I do hope it will pick up now that I’m back home. (Can I just say this is so weird writing this before I’ve even gone away. I had to write a bunch of posts early. I just know that I won’t get much reading done.) Anywho, let’s dive in and see what books I wanted to read but didn’t this year. Continue reading “Blogmas Day 10: Books I Didn’t Get To in 2019”

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag #2
Hey guys! I honestly can’t believe we are in the middle of June right now. I swear June 1st was just yesterday but we’re almost at the end and July is fast approaching. I can’t get over how quick this year is just flying by. It needs to slow down.
Anyway, I have seen this tag going around on youtube and saw some blogger friends post it as well so I thought I’d hop on board and do it. I honestly forgot that I did this last year but I’m excited to do it again! I feel 2019 has been a bit of a difficult reading year for me. I’ve read 38 books so far. I feel this has been a decent reading year. I’ve had some books really stand out and others I haven’t really enjoyed. I also just got out of a bit of a reading slump which I’m glad that’s over with. I do feel I’ve read some enjoyable reads this month so that makes me very happy. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag #2”
Waiting on Wednesday: The Missing Years
The Missing Years By Lexie Elliott
Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Fiction, Suspense
Pages: 320 pages
Release Date: April 23 2019
Plot: An eerie, old Scottish manor in the middle of nowhere that’s now hers.
Ailsa Calder has inherited half of a house. The other half belongs to a man who disappeared without a trace twenty-seven years ago—her father.
Leaving London behind to settle the inheritance from her mother’s estate, Ailsa returns to her childhood home, nestled amongst the craggy peaks of the Scottish Highlands, joined by the half-sister who’s almost a stranger to her.
Ailsa can’t escape the claustrophobic feeling that the house itself is watching her—as if her past hungers to consume her. She also can’t ignore how the neighbourhood animals refuse to set one foot within the gates of the garden.
When the first nighttime intruder shows up, Ailsa fears that the manor’s careless rugged beauty could cost her everything.
Why I Need This Book: So last year I ended up reading Lexie Elliott’s debut novel, The French Girl. I ended up enjoying it. I was excited to hear she had another book coming out this year. I don’t know too much about the plot. I do try going into thrillers/mysteries blind. I do feel sometimes the summaries can be a bit spoilery. I can’t wait to see what people think of 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 book up? I would love to hear your thoughts on it. I seriously can’t wait for it to come out!

Top Ten Tuesday: The Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Read List
Hey guys!!! It’s time again for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is The Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Read List. So I haven’t been putting too many books on my TBR lately. I have been doing Down The TBR Hole for a while now. I have been trying to add books I know I’m really interested in. I think in the past I would just add something just so I wouldn’t forget the name. So I’m trying to be a bit more picky. So now let’s dive in to see what my most recent additions are!
