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!

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”
Top Ten Tuesday: Standalone Books That Need a Sequel
Hey guys!!! It’s time again for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Standalone Books That Need a Sequel. Most of these books are great standalones but honestly I could use more of the characters in my life so I feel that’s the main reason for picking them. I would even be fine with a novella. So let’s dive in to see which books I picked. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Standalone Books That Need a Sequel”

Top 5 Wednesday: Summer Reads
Hey guys!! I’m so excited to do another Top 5 Wednesday. I am super excited for this one because it has to do with Summer. Summer is my favorite time of the year. The theme is Summer Reads –The weather is heating up (for half of the world), so what books remind you of summer and are your quintessential summer reads?
Girl Out of Water By Laura Silverman
Reason: Okay so I’m so happy to have this 2017 debut author on my list. I read this book and I absolutely loved it. It deals with the main character basically not being able to take part in the summer she has been super excited for. It was really fun and enjoyable. It truly is a great coming of age story that I really highly recommend. I hope to reread this soon.
Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas
Reason: Okay so this isn’t a summer book it has to do with spring break but it gives me summer vibes. I mean just look at that cover doesn’t it scream summer. Plus when I read this it was summer time so that counts, right? I really enjoyed this book and it really kept me guessing until the end. If you haven’t read this you should check it out.
The Truth About Forever By Sarah Dessen
Reason: Okay so I’m really upset I waited so long to read this book. I really liked it a lot. It takes place in the summer. Macy spends her summer at a job where her coworkers don’t like her and she spend the rest of the day studying. She doesn’t have much of a life until she decides to work at a catering job. This was such a great story. I loved seeing the development of Macy. It really is such a great story that I have sat on for way too long.
The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line By Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham
Reason: This is another book that takes place during spring break but it also gives me summer vibes at the same time. I mean just look at the title and the book cover alone. I am a huge Veronica Mars fan and I am so happy these books were made to keep the spirit of the show going strong. I really enjoyed it and I have the second one waiting for me to read. I’m just not ready for it to be over. If you’re a fan of Veronica Mars than I highly recommend you check this out!
Anything that was written by Morgan Matson
Reason: I am a huge fan of Morgan. I’ve only read two of her books but this month I plan on reading the other two I haven’t read yet plus rereading the other books. I love Morgan’s books so much. They give off the ultimate summer vibes. I mean you really can’t go wrong with these books. They’re so fun.
Have you guys read any of the books on this list? What are some books that give you those summer vibes? I would love to hear what you guys have to say. Summer contemporaries are so fun to read.
Month of Matson
So I recently found out that Maureen Graham over at MaureenKeavy on YouTube created Month of Matson where you spend the month reading Morgan Matson’s book. She started it in 2015 and has continued doing it since. The Month of Matson will begin tomorrow, May 1st.
When I heard about this I was super excited. I ended up buying Morgan Matson’s box set in March which included Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, Second Chance Summer, and Since You’ve Been Gone. I had to get my hands on this because two of these books I haven’t read yet. I’m excited that the paperback of The Unexpected Everything was just released because it has extra bonus content on it. So I need to get my hands on that one A.S.A.P.
I am super excited to read the books I haven’t read already and to freshen up on the ones I have. I know I am going to discover new things because Morgan likes to have old characters appear in her recent books. So I’m super excited to see what I missed.
Morgan Matson is hands down one of my favorite contemporary authors. I am excited to be partaking in this. I am excited because in June Morgan will be making an appearance at Book Con in June. I really hope she ends up doing a signing because I would love to meet her and get my books signed. I know she will be doing a panel there so I hope I am lucky in getting in on this.
Will you be partaking in Month of Matson? If so have you read any of Morgan Matson’s books or will this be your first time reading them? I would love to hear your thoughts.
Hey guys! I just wanted to inform you of this awesome deal I spotted on amazon yesterday. I am a huge fan of Morgan Matson. I have discovered there is a box set of three of her books called Detours, Do-Overs, and Dares. This box set includes: Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, Second Chance Summer, and Since You’ve Been Gone. It is currently only $13.44 when it is usually $22. I’m not sure how long this is going on for but I just felt like informing you guys because I was so excited that I immediately bought the box set.
