Hello, fellow readers! Today’s review is not for one of the newest, hottest books. I came across Ararat by Christopher Golden while scrolling through Audible a couple of weeks ago. The premise of the book sounded similar to The Anomaly by Michael Rutger, which was one of my favorite books of 2018.
What a mediocre reading month! March was a rough month. I expected to get so much reading done during Spring Break, but adult responsibilities and National Boards and family obligations dominated that week off from school. Nothing I read this month “wowed” me or captivated me and frankly I had a hard time even picking up a book to read everyday.
I am currently still reading The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden and an ARC of The Killer In Me by Olivia Kiernan. I am very close to DNFing The Bear and the Nightingale though. There are way too many other fantasy books I want to be reading, plus ARCs I need to catch up on.
Hello, fellow readers! I have been failing at sticking to my posting schedule since spring break, and I do apologize for that! The last quarter of the school year always has me super stressed preparing for end of the year testing, so honestly, I haven’t gone shopping to have new favorite clothes or beauty products! I just kind of crash after school and on the weekends, which is really depressing me, but summer will be here soon!
Hello, fellow readers! I picked up this book at the library on a whim. I remember bookstagram raving about the twist ending of The Banker’s Wife last year, and the librarian told me everyone had told her it was great.
Hello, fellow readers! There has been a ton of hype of the Grisha trilogy and the Six of Crows duology on bookstagram and booktube. I bought the Six of Crows duology from BookOutlet’s Black Friday sale, but I then I read reviews stating to read the Grisha Trilogy first. Then Netflix announced their adaptation of the Grisha Trilogy, so I knew I had to read it.
Welcome to another edition of Down the TBR Hole! This will be the fifth month that I have attempted to clean up my TBR list on Goodreads.
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?
Hello, fellow readers! I really enjoyed McManus’ One of Us is Lying in 2018, so I was excited to find out she was releasing another book in 2019 called Two Can Keep a Secret. There was a bit of confusion over the title of this books because it almost sounds like a sequel, especially since the covers have the same feel to them. This is not a sequel or companion to One of Us is Lying, and I think it is the weaker book of the two.
Hello, fellow readers! I love a good supernatural movie, but I have struck out with supernatural books in the last year. I requested and was granted a copy of The Invited by Jennifer McMahon by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
Hello, fellow readers! I usually do not fall for the “bookstagram hype,” but I kept seeing The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo EVERYWHERE last year. It was being raved about in the bookish community, and when I found the audiobook on scribd, I decided to give it a try, not really knowing what to expect.
