Blogmas Day 13: Books I Didn’t Get To In 2018
Hey guys! I can’t get over how fast 2018 came. I honestly am really happy with how this year went. I have to say I feel my reading was off a little bit. I found myself not enjoying a lot of books. I feel I gave a lot of 3 stars. Goodreads says my average rating is 3.5. I am also sad because there were a lot of books I really wanted to get to but didn’t. So today I thought I’d share with you some of the books I was really excited for but didn’t end up picking up. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “Blogmas Day 13: Books I Didn’t Get To In 2018”
5 Star Predictions
Hey guys! So I have been seeing this go around on youtube in the past and have been wanting to do this for a while now. I think the main reason I just never did is because I’ve been super nervous about this. I worry that I’ll make this list and then either I won’t like any of the books or none of them will be five stars. Sure I know what books I like but sometimes I surprise myself. Sometimes I find myself loving a book I might never have picked up and other times I’ll dislike a book I was dying to pick up. I am very excited to pick up all these books. After I read all of them I will come back and make another post with my ratings and what I ended up thinking of them. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “5 Star Predictions”
Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag
Wow I honestly can’t believe we have little over a week left of June. I find that so crazy. It feels like just yesterday that I was anxiously waiting for Bookcon to get here. Bookcon came and went and so did the rest of June. I have to say I am pretty excited because I have a vacation coming up in July but I do wish things would just slow down a little bit.
So I have been seeing a lot of people doing this mid-year freak out tag. It was created on youtube Chami & Ely. I thought it would be really fun to do. Yes I am freaking out a little bit but I’d like to share with you guys my reading experience so far for half of 2018. I am interested to see how I feel at the end of the year. So let’s dive in!

Hey guys!!! It’s time again for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.This week’s theme is Frequently Used Words in [Insert Genre/Age Group] Title.

Waiting on Wednesday: Then She Was Gone
Then She Was Gone By Lisa Jewell
Genre: Thriller, Mystery, Fiction, Suspense, Adult, Contemporary, Adult Fiction
Pages: 368 pages
Release Date: April 17th 2018
Publisher: Atria Books
Plot: Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. She was fifteen, the youngest of three. She was beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers. She and her boyfriend made a teenaged golden couple. She was days away from an idyllic post-exams summer vacation, with her whole life ahead of her.
And then she was gone.
Now, her mother Laurel Mack is trying to put her life back together. It’s been ten years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie’s case was unearthed. So when she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a café, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she’s meeting Floyd’s daughters—and his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away.
Because looking at Poppy is like looking at Ellie. And now, the unanswered questions she’s tried so hard to put to rest begin to haunt Laurel anew. Where did Ellie go? Did she really run away from home, as the police have long suspected, or was there a more sinister reason for her disappearance? Who is Floyd, really? And why does his daughter remind Laurel so viscerally of her own missing girl?
Why I Need This Book: I discovered Lisa Jewell last year. I read I Found You and it was so good. It was a five star read for me. Here is my review on the book. So when I saw Lisa was coming out with another book I got so excited. Thankfully I got accepted for the arc. I plan to make it my next read.
Have any of you guys gotten a chance to read this early? I would love to hear your thoughts on it. I seriously can’t wait to start it. What books are you looking forward to being released?
