Review | The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware

Hello, readers! I read back-to-back Ruth Ware books in July, which inevitably led to a reading slump! But I thought The Death of Mrs. Westaway was the author’s strongest book so far, followed by The Lying Game, which I also read in July.

**Disclaimer: As with all of my reviews, I do post the entire plot synopsis before my review. However, I will always recommend for Thriller Thursday reviews that you skip the plot synopsis. Thrillers are better when you go in knowing little to nothing about the plot. Happy reading!

Review | 9 Days and 9 Nights by Katie Cotugno

Hello, readers! Earlier this month, I checked out several audiobooks from the hoopla app through my library. I only have five borrow credits each month, so I usually get audiobooks. I realized after our trip that I never read this book and it was scheduled to return at the end of the month. I decided to start it at the gym on a whim. I need to read more by Katie Cotugno now!

Review | The Lying Game by Ruth Ware

Hello, readers! I recently read The Lying Game by Ruth Ware, and it is my favorite Ruth Ware book so far! I am hoping The Death of Mrs. Westaway does not disappoint me. So many booktubers who usually hate her books have said Mrs. Westaway is so good, so I’m afraid I have my expectations too high! I think I know too much about the plot for that one going in too. But with The Lying Game, I had read the plot months ago, and then forgot what it was about. I think this is why I finally enjoyed an entire Ruth Ware book.

Books I Am Taking on Vacation

Hello, readers! Today I am running around like a crazy woman while I pack for our cruise. To get to our port, we will have to drive about 9-10 hours one way, so I am definitely taking some books along for the ride! I also hope to get some quality reading time on the beaches one day. I always overpack for trips, and I’m afraid my book list for the trip is no exception!

So let’s talk about my vacation reads this year!
