Blogmas Day 18: Netgalley Arcs I Need To Read #5

Hey guys! So I figured it was time for another Netgalley update. I am still backed up on e-arcs. I do have some on my TBR for the next couple months. I have decided if I don’t read the ones from the last couple years then I won’t worry about reviewing them. I keep saying I want to get on top of my e-arcs and I keep slacking. This year has been a mess so I’m giving myself a pass. So let’s dive in to see what arcs I need to read from Netgalley.

July Wrap-up

Hey guys! In the last couple of months I feel that I ended up hitting a bit of a slump. I am thankful that during June I ended up coming out of that slump. I felt like I ended up reading quite a lot of books in July. In the last couple of months I found myself wanting to only listen to audiobooks. I couldn’t really focus on actually reading. I finally have gotten back into my groove. Let’s dive in and see what I ended up reading in July! Continue reading “July Wrap-up”

Waiting On Wednesday: The Game By Linsey Miller & Bookish and The Beast By Ashley Poston

The GameThe Game By Linsey Miller

Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Young Adult
Pages: 240 pages
Release Date:  August 4th 2020
Publisher: Underlined

Plot: If you loved American Horror Story 1984, you’ll die for this paperback original thriller mashup of Agatha Christie’s The A.B.C. Murders and Riverdale in which a game turns deadly with a killer who picks his victims one by one, letter by letter.

Every year the senior class at Lincoln High plays assassin. Lia Prince has been planning her strategy for years and she’s psyched that not only does she finally get to play, she’s on a team with Devon Diaz. But this year, the game isn’t any fun–it’s real. Abby Ascher, Ben Barnard, and Cassidy Clarke have all turned up . . . dead. Can Lia stop the ABC killer before he reaches D?

Why I Need This Book: So the moment I heard about this book it just seemed really interesting. It’s supposed to be similar to Agatha Christie’s A.B.C. Murders. I ended up reading that recently and enjoyed it. It just seems like it’s going to be a fun mystery book that is fast paced. I’m always looking to find new mysteries so I can’t wait to check this out!


Bookish and The BeastBookish and The Beast By Ashley Poston

Genre: Contemporary, Young Adult, Romance, Retelling, Fiction
Pages: 288 pages
Release Date: August 4th 2020
Publisher: Quirk Books

Plot: In the third book in Ashley Poston’s Once Upon a Con series, Beauty and the Beast is retold in the beloved Starfield universe.

Rosie Thorne is feeling stuck—on her college application essays, in her small town, and on that mysterious General Sond cosplayer she met at ExcelsiCon. Most of all, she’s stuck in her grief over her mother’s death. Her only solace was her late mother’s library of rare Starfield novels, but even that disappeared when they sold it to pay off hospital bills.

On the other hand, Vance Reigns has been Hollywood royalty for as long as he can remember—with all the privilege and scrutiny that entails. When a tabloid scandal catches up to him, he’s forced to hide out somewhere the paparazzi would never expect to find him: Small Town USA. At least there’s a library in the house. Too bad he doesn’t read.

When Rosie and Vance’s paths collide and a rare book is accidentally destroyed, Rosie finds herself working to repay the debt. And while most Starfield superfans would jump at the chance to work in close proximity to the Vance Reigns, Rosie has discovered something about Vance: he’s a jerk, and she can’t stand him. The feeling is mutual.

But as Vance and Rosie begrudgingly get to know each other, their careful masks come off—and they may just find that there’s more risk in shutting each other out than in opening their hearts.

Why I Need This Book: I recently discovered the Once Upon A Con series right before quarantine hit. I ended up really enjoying it. I did pick up the second one and not like it as much. I do think I need to read it because I wasn’t as focused during that time. I am really excited for the next book in the series. I can’t wait to meet some new characters while hopefully running into so old ones. I do hope my library gets a copy of this.


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! So I have slowly been getting back into blogging. I have posted two reviews after being gone for a couple of months. I was originally thinking maybe I would do indiviual wrap-ups for those months. Then I saw Dora @Berries and Books do just a quick wrap-up of the books she has read since she’s been gone. I thought that would be fun. Thank you so much for the idea! Anyway, the last couple of months my reading has been very up and down. I finally have gotten back into reading which I’m super happy about. So July will have it’s own wrap-up at the end of the month. So let’s dive in and see what I read in the last couple of months!

I like switching things up and if something sounds interesting to me and I want to pick it up right away why not. So let’s dive in to see what I ended up reading in February!
