Review | The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

Hello, fellow readers! Several weeks ago, I received an email from NetGalley inviting me to read and review Lisa Jewell’s newest novel, The Family Upstairs. The synopsis was intriguing so I went for it (I would definitely not read the full synopsis if you plan to read this one though). I have a bad habit of missing publication dates for my NetGalley titles, but this book happened to fit several of the challenges for Nightmareathon, so I decided to read it then. I finished the book within 24 hours because I had to know what was going to happen!

Review | This Lie Will Kill You by Chelsea Pitcher

Hello, fellow readers! I have been trying to put my Scribd subscription to better use lately and picked a YA mystery/thriller to listen to during my commute. I have been wanting to read This Lie Will Kill You by Chelsea Pitcher for awhile now, and fall seemed like the perfect time for this book.

Review | A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman

Hello, fellow readers! It has been way too long since my last review. I think I just needed a little bit of a break in September, but now I am trying to catch up on the books I have read recently. I had a Kindle Unlimited trial subscription until recently, so I read several books on there in September. I found A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman and decided to give it a try.

Review | An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

Hello, fellow readers! I recently visited Minneapolis, MN and met up with a fellow bookstagrammer, @readwithash, at Half Price Books. Ashley reads more contemporary than I typically do, and she kept raving about An American Wedding. She ended up sending me her copy to read once I was home, and I finally got around to reading it at the end of August.

Review | The Perfect Nanny by Leila Slimani

Hello, fellow readers! Reading has not been a huge priority lately (back-to-school teacher tired has me too exhausted to focus!), but I finished The Perfect Nanny by Leila Slimani last week. My understanding is this book was originally published in French and translated to English. I was really intrigued by the story and it is a really short book, so I expected this to be a quick read.

Review | We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han

Hello, fellow readers! Even though I did not love the second book in the Summer trilogy, I decided to finish it because the books are short and super easy to listen to. I am SO glad I decided to go ahead and finish because the final book ended up being my favorite of the trilogy!

We'll Always Have Summer

**MAJOR spoilers for The Summer I Turned Pretty and It’s Not Summer Without You are in this review.

Review | The Possession by Michael Rutger

Hello, fellow readers! I absolutely LOVED The Anomaly by Michael Rutger last year, so when I discovered there was a sequel coming out, I knew I had to read it ASAP. You do not need to read The Anomaly before picking up The Possession. There are some mentions of the previous book, but the author is careful not to give too much away.

Many thanks to Grand Central Publishing for sending me an advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Review | The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

Hello, fellow readers! One of my most anticipated reads for 2019 was The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware. I read all of her books last summer and fell in love with her ability to tell a story. When I was sent an ARC of her newest release, I could not believe it! I am so grateful to Scout Press for sending me a review copy.

Review | The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

Hello, fellow readers! I am way behind on reviews, but I am working hard to catch up this month since I know I will most likely read less in August! I read The 7 1/2 Death of Evelyn Hardcastle in July. This was one of my most anticipated books from 2018, but I never got around to reading it.
