Hello, fellow readers! I recently started using Edelweiss more and was able to get a review copy of The Return by Rachel Harrison last week from Berkley. I was in the mood for a creepy story (always!), so I had high hopes going in to this one despite the mixed reviews.
Hello, fellow readers! It has been quite some time since I have written a book review. It has also been quite some time since I’ve finished a book that I enjoyed as well. I was sent a copy of The Honey-Don’t List by Christina Lauren through Netgalley. The publisher was kind enough to reach out to me after I read In Five Years. Given the state of the world recently, I was in need of some lighter reading, so I decided to start this one at the beginning of my spring break.
Hello, fellow readers! I made a goal to not only catch up on my BOTM backlist but to read my monthly pick sooner, preferably the month I pick it. I was successful in January because I chose The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James, which was one of my most anticipated books of 2020. Everyone was talking about this book, so I picked it up the last week of January and was immediately hooked.

Hello, fellow readers! I fell in love with The Cruel Prince two years ago and devoured the entire series. This series is far from perfect and I can only describe it as a fae soap opera that you keep tuning in to because you want to see what ridiculous thing will happen next.
Spoilers ahead because it was kind of unavoidable, plus I needed to get all my thoughts out there for discussion!
Hello, fellow readers! Today’s review is one of my most anticipated books of 2020, and I am so thankful I received an eARC from the publisher via NetGalley.
In Five Years by Rebecca Serle will be published March 10, 2020 and is available for pre-order now!
Hello, fellow readers! I finally won a book from a Goodreads giveaway last year, and it was an ARC of Perfect Little Children by Sophie Hannah. I honestly didn’t think anyone ever actually won Goodreads giveaways because I have had terrible luck with them for the past couple of years!
Hello, fellow readers! Part of my 2020 reading goals is to stay on top on my ARCs. I am about a week late reviewing this title, but I am pleased that I still read it in the month of release! Another 2020 reading goal is to read more “big books.” The God Game has about 450 pages, which I am counting as a big book. I don’t usually read books with more than 300-350 pages!
Hello, fellow readers! I finished my first book of 2020, and it was definitely a memorable one! I am so glad I finally picked up Recursion by Blake Crouch. I picked this as my Book of the Month pick in June 2019, and then I put it to the side, waiting for the “right time” to read.

I am cheating with this review a bit by having it on Thriller Thursday. There is a mystery in the book, however, it is not what I would call “thrilling.” I hate that I DNF’d this one, but it did not capture my attention. I appreciate Tor Books and Netgalley for sending me an advance copy of this book for my honest review.
**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!
I finally signed up for Book of the Month (BOTM) in August. I was actually very disappointed in the selection compared to July, but I am doing a three month comparison of BOTM and Page 1 book subscriptions, so I wanted a book from both for my comparison. Several lovely bookstagram ladies recommended The Dinner List, and I rolled with it because of Audrey Hepburn.
BOTM is a subscription service where you pay $14.99/month and get to choose your book at the beginning of the month. Additional books are only $9.99 and sometimes, apparently, you have the option of choosing a book that is not released yet, as was the case with The Dinner List.
Page 1 is a subscription service that chooses a book for you based on your interests. You can choose from several types of subscriptions (classics, fiction, mystery, etc). You have to sign up for the subscription in 3-, 6-, or 12- month subscriptions, but I promise you will LOVE it! If Page 1 sends you a book that you have already read or own, they will send you another book at no cost AND you get to keep the book they sent you so you can pass it on to someone or donate it! And that is my favorite part of Page 1.
And now let’s get to the review!
