Hey guys! I was suppose to post this yesterday but didn’t finish writing it before I went out so posting it today just because I haven’t posted much all week. I hope you’re all having a wonderful day. I decided that for today to do a post that is long overdue. I haven’t done a favorites of 2019 yet. So I figured I would show you all the books I loved in 2019. I have to say looking back at the books of 2019, It was an iffy read for reads. I read a lot of books I didn’t like. So I can understand why it was a pretty slumpy year for me. I hope that 2020 is better. Right now I’ve been enjoying majority of my books. So I hope it stays that way. So let’s dive in!

Hey guys! So I feel like I got into a bit of a slump in April. It effected my reading in May and a bit in June as well. I think I am finally out of that reading slump because I’ve been actually doing a good amount lately. So I’m very happy about that. I did end up reading a little more in June than I did in May so I’m happy about that. I am still behind with some books I wanted to read. I do hope I’m able to catch up in July. My July TBR will be out soon. Anyway let’s jump in to what I read in June. Continue reading “My June Wrap-up”
Genre: Thriller, Mystery, Fiction
Pages: 384 pages
Release Date: July 2 2019
Plot: No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.
As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly, disturbingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew is not what it seems and the dark history hidden beneath its gleaming facade is starting to frighten her, Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story . . . until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.
Searching for the truth about Ingrid’s disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew’s dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building’s hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.
Why I Need This Book: I really have enjoyed Riley Sager’s books in the past. So when I heard he had a new book coming I was so excited. I was very fortune to get an e-arc of this book. I have read it and I really loved it. This is my favorite Riley Sager book. I can’t wait for it to come out and then you guys are able to read it and experience the story. It was such an enjoyable read with twists I didn’t see coming. My review will be out soon for it.
Genre: Thriller. Mystery, Fiction, Suspense
Pages: 416 pages
Release Date: July 2 2019
Publisher: Berkley Books
Plot: In this high concept psychological suspense novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Somebody’s Daughter, a chance meeting with a woman in an airport sends a man on a
pulse-pounding quest for the truth…
Joshua Fields takes the same flights every week for work. His life is a series of departures and arrivals, hotels and airports. During yet another layover, Joshua meets Morgan, a beautiful stranger with whom he feels an immediate connection. When it’s time for their flights, Morgan gets up to leave, leans over and passionately kisses Joshua, lamenting that they’ll never see each other again.
As Morgan slips away, Joshua is left feeling confused by what just happened between them. That’s when he looks up and is shocked to see Morgan’s face flashing on a nearby TV screen. He’s even more shocked when he learns the reason why–Morgan is a missing person.
What follows is a whirlwind, fast-paced journey filled with lies, deceit, and secrets to discover the truth about why Morgan is on the run. But when he finally thinks every mystery is solved, another rears its head, and Joshua’s worst enemy may be his own assumptions about those around him…
Why I Need This Book: I really enjoy David Bell’s books. I am a bit behind. I still need to read his last release. The moment I saw he had another book coming out I couldn’t help but be excited. I was also lucky to get an e-arc of this book as well. I have not read it but I would like to try to read it before it is released. I really like that this takes place at an airport. I’ve only read one other book at an airport and that was a contemporary book. I feel this should be a quick and fun read. I can’t wait to read it!
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!

Hey guys! It’s time for me to post my June TBR. I ended up not reading most of what I wanted to in May. I’m not sure what it was but I wasn’t in a mood to read. I’m not sure if it had to do with April where I forced myself to read books I wasn’t feeling but my reading slowed down a lot. It’s currently June 6th and I haven’t picked up anything to read yet. I guess I’m in a little bit of a slump which is a sad. I’m hoping I can get myself out of this cause I have a good amount of books I want to read. So let’s dive in and hope I get to these.

➽ AUTO-APPROVED: WHO’S ONE AUTHOR WHOSE BOOKS YOU AUTOMATICALLY WANT TO READ, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT?
Most the stuff I request on Netgalley is Thrillers. So I’ll usually go for authors I know. Ruth Ware has become an author I’ll always request on Netgalley. Also Riley Sager has become an auto-request author.
➽ REQUEST: WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO REQUEST A BOOK ON NETGALLEY?
I always go for thrillers. So I’ll go for books I see people are talking about and said they said they really enjoyed. I also will request books from authors I’ve read from before and really enjoyed. Sometimes I’ll request books if I hear a friend talk about it.
➽ FEEDBACK RATIO: DO YOU REVIEW EVERY BOOK YOU READ? IF NOT, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT BOOKS TO REVIEW?
I don’t review every book I read. I do for Netgalley. I want to work on getting better at doing more reviews though. I usually review books that I feel I have a lot of thoughts on. I will do this with books I like and books I don’t like. I usually don’t do DNF reviews.
➽ BADGES: IF YOU COULD CREATE ONE BADGE TO DISPLAY ON YOUR BLOG, WHAT WOULD IT BE FOR?
I would like a badge dealing with genres I read. I would like to know how many different genres I’ve read and reviewed. I think that would be really fun.
➽ WISH FOR IT: WHAT’S ONE BOOK THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY DYING TO READ?
Top of my list is Lock Every Door By Riley Sager. I am so excited for this book! It is on Netgalley right now. I did end up requesting it but the publisher said right now those copies are only for journalists. She did say if I do have a book blog I could possibly get a copy close to publication. So hopefully that ends up happening. *Fingers crossed*
➽ 2018 NETGALLEY CHALLENGE: WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK THAT YOU RECEIVED AS AN ARC THAT YOU REVIEWED? IF YOU’VE NEVER RECEIVED AN ARC, WHAT’S THE LAST BOOK YOU REVIEWED?
King of Fools By Amanda Foody is the last book I received. I have not read it yet. It is part of my March TBR.
My Squirrel Days By Ellie Kemper is the last arc I just read and reviewed that I got from Netgalley.
