Blogmas Day 11: November Wrap-up
Hey guys! It is time for my November Wrap-up. Last week I shared what I read in October to catch up. I finally will be caught up with my book wrap-ups. My movie wrap-up will be coming on Monday. Overall I really only loved one book I read in November. I am wondering if that ended up putting me in my slump. Thankfully I finally finished a book yesterday! I haven’t really been posting TBRs because my reading mood has been all over the place. I haven’t been sticking to them. There were some books I really wanted to get to but I don’t think I’ll be able to fit them in. Here’s to starting fresh in the new year. So now let’s dive in to see what I read in November!
Blogmas Day 7: October Movie Wrap-up
Hey guys! It is time for another Movie Monday! It’s been a long time since I posted one of these. I have to say I didn’t end up watching nearly as many movies as I hoped in October. I was hoping to watch more spooky flicks. I ended up only watching three spooky films. So I am a bit disappointed. I am still on track to watching 100 films this year. I only need two more. So very close! Anyway let’s dive in to see what I watched in October.
Blogmas Day 3: October Wrap-up
Hey guys! So it is time for my October Wrap-up. I know that this is a bit late. I didn’t end up blogging during the month of November. I still wanted to update you guys on what I ended up reading in October. It did end up being a bit more than I remember. However I did read some short stories and some comics so that is part of it. I honestly felt like I read some of these books a while ago. My brain is definitely shot from this year. I do look forward to 2021 and starting a clean slate. I do hope it ends up being better. Anyway now let’s dive in to see what I read in October!
Blogmas Day 2: 25 Reads of December
Hey guys! Once again it is time for the 25 Reads of December. I did want to post this yesterday but I really wanted to do the Top Tuesday. So here I am posting it a day late. I always enjoy this a lot. The 25 Reads of December is done by Riveted. Everyday leading up to Christmas a different book will be free to read for one day. I really love this idea so much. They always include so many amazing books that are in different genres. Also they have a good amount of books that have just recently come out this year.
This year I am not very familiar with a lot of the books on this book. I have only read one of these books which is I Killed Zoe Spanos By Kit Frick. I really enjoyed and recommend listening to on audiobook if you can.
I do find the best way I am able to read these books in a day is when I don’t have anything going on and I’m able to listen to the audiobook. I always try to see if my library has the book before hand. Obviously you don’t have to read these in just a day. I do like that you’re able to start reading it right away. If you do like it you can buy it or even see if you’re library has it. It’s a great way to discover new authors. So let’s dive in to see what I’m going to try to read!

Publisher: Park Row Books
Genre: Thriller, Fiction, Mystery, Suspense, Adult, Contemporary, Adult Ficton
Where to Buy: Harlequin, Indiebound, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Target, Walmart, Google, iBooks, Kobo
Synopsis: Bestselling and award-winning author Lisa Unger returns with her best novel yet. Reminiscent of the classic Strangers on a Train, Confessions on the 7:45 is a riveting psychological thriller that begins with a chance encounter on a commuter train and shows why you should never, ever make conversation with strangers.
Be careful who you tell your darkest secrets…
Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she’s been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena’s station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again.
But days later, Selena’s nanny disappears.
Soon Selena finds her once-perfect life upended. As she is pulled into the mystery of the missing nanny, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, Selena begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she’ll discover.
Expertly plotted and reminiscent of the timeless classic Strangers on a Train, Confessions on the 7:45 is a stunning web of lies and deceit, and a gripping thriller about the delicate facades we create around our lives.
Author Bio: Lisa Unger is the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of eighteen novels, including CONFESSIONS ON THE 7:45 (Oct. 2020). With millions of readers worldwide and books published in twenty-six languages, Unger is widely regarded as a master of suspense.

Overall I did find a couple new reads I liked so let’s dive in to see what books those were!

When Emilia and Wrath’s fates collide, it’s clear this disturbing mystery will take a bewitching turn…

Book Review: Mexican Gothic By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Mexican Gothic By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Genre: Horror, Fiction, Gothic, Mystery, Fantasy, Historical, Adult, Thriller
Publication Date: June 30th 2020
Publisher: Del Rey
My Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars
Synopsis: NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An isolated mansion. A chillingly charismatic aristocrat. And a brave socialite drawn to expose their treacherous secrets
After receiving a frantic letter from her newlywed cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom, Noemí Taboada heads to High Place, a distant house in the Mexican countryside. She’s not sure what she will find – her cousin’s husband, a handsome Englishman, is a stranger, and Noemí knows little about the region.
Noemí is also an unlikely rescuer: She’s a glamorous debutante, and her chic gowns and perfect red lipstick are more suited for cocktail parties than amateur sleuthing. But she’s also tough and smart, with an indomitable will, and she is not afraid: not of her cousin’s new husband, who is both menacing and alluring; not of his father, the ancient patriarch who seems to be fascinated by Noemí; and not even of the house itself, which begins to invade Noemi’s dreams with visions of blood and doom.
Her only ally in this inhospitable abode is the family’s youngest son. Shy and gentle, he seems to want to help Noemí but might also be hiding dark knowledge of his family’s past. For there are many secrets behind the walls of High Place. The family’s once colossal wealth and faded mining empire kept them from prying eyes, but as Noemí digs deeper she unearths stories of violence and madness.
And Noemí, mesmerized by the terrifying yet seductive world of High Place, may soon find it impossible to ever leave this enigmatic house behind.
