Review | Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

Hello, fellow readers! Today I am talking about one of my most anticipated books of 2019. Prepare yourselves for the fangirling that is to come! Few authors are on my “automatic read” list, but Riley Sager has claimed one of those spots with his latest book, Lock Every Door.

I am so grateful to Dutton Books for sending me an electronic copy of this book to review.

2019 Anticipated Releases | July and August

I totally fell off the wagon with these posts after the first one for January and February! Honestly, this year there haven’t been as many books that I am super pumped about. I was really excited for BEA and BookCon posts from the bloggers and booktubers lucky enough to go, but even they admitted there were less hyped books this year than in the past.

Review | A Nearly Normal Family by M. T. Edvardsson

Hello, fellow readers! I was sent a surprise copy of A Nearly Normal Family from Celadon Books a month or so ago. I was unaware that the book was coming or that it even existed. I started seeing some buzz for the book after it was released as a June pick for Book of the Month. People were raving about it, so I decided to jump right in to my copy a little earlier than I anticipated. I am so grateful to Celadon Books for sending this hidden gem my way!

Book List | Ten Books I Want to Read This Summer

Next week, I take my test for National Board certification and then summer really begins for me! I can’t wait to get back to reading. Last summer I read about 20 books. I don’t know if I will get to that many this year, but I know of at least ten books I for sure want to finally read. I was not able to give many synopses for these books because they are either the second book in a series or a mystery/thriller/horror book, which I prefer to go in to blind.

**Sidenote: You may have noticed my May Wrap Up post is missing. I only finished one book in May, so I will be combining May and June in one wrap up post!

Review | The First Mistake by Sandie Jones

Hello, fellow readers! I have been in a terrible reading slump for about two months, but I am happy to report that I seem to be coming out of the slump because I flew through this ARC in three days. I could have read it in one sitting if I wasn’t studying!

I am going to recommend that you skip the synopsis for this book. I will be including one in my review, but you will enjoy this more if you go in blind.

Spoilers in my review but I have a warning so you can skip them! If you have read the book, I would love to discuss my spoiler-y thoughts with you!

Book List | Down the TBR Hole #6

Hello, readers! I just got home from a long weekend getaway and it is officially summer vacation! I have nine weeks of fun, sun, and lots of reading! I am working on another post and needed to clean up my TBR, so I thought, “Why not do a ‘Down the TBR Hole’ post since I haven’t done one in a couple of months?”

So basically the idea is to clean up your Goodreads TBR because we are all guilty of adding books to Goodreads and before you know it, there are 200 books on your list and you don’t even remember what a third of them are about!

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads want-to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Tag Tuesday | Spring Cleaning Tag

I am desperately trying to get back to my regularly schedule posts! It feels like I haven’t written a Tag Tuesday post in months. Today is the Spring Cleaning Tag. I know personally, I like to deep clean the house after winter and move all the heavy coats and blankets to upstairs closets. This tag was super fun because it relates the concept to books I have read or want to read!

Book List | Books I Want to See Adapted

Welcome back, fellow readers! Today I was catching up on YouTube videos and I was inspired by a video about movie sequels/remakes to create a post about books I want to see adapted to movies or TV series. I will admit to being a total couch potato at times and binging Netflix like a pro some days. I love to read, but honestly, I still struggle with choosing to read a book over watching TV sometimes. In any case, I have read many books in the past year that I would love to see adapted.
