So I‘m low key excited to read this his book because I‘m actually taking a college course under the professor that wrote this book. I want to see his writing style and see if I like his books. Heehee so that‘s a bit of a rush.

The Institute | Stephen King

Now all of my library books have come in at once but I‘m determined to get to some of them at least. So, that being said this just came in the mail today and I‘m beyond happy about it! I can‘t wait. To read it. Only thing is that I have so much schoolwork to do that I don‘t know if I can get to it right away.

This was actually book of the month for one of my book groups on Facebook. I just didn‘t get it in time. Now all of my library books have come in at once but I‘m determined to get to some of them at least. So...very excited about this one. Heard good things about it and I‘ve always been a fan of mythology. Even took a course on it about a year ago.

So I really love the show Instinct and didn‘t even know it was based off a book.

I‘m also a James Patterson fan so I thought why not!? And guess what came in the mail today!? Yes!!

I actually really enjoyed this book. Just finished it, it‘s 4:30am. Despite the fact that I detest the main character female, Vika, I thought it had a good plot and that the other characters were well done.

I‘m going to look and see what the next book in this series would be. I repeatedly found that I liked the scenes with the other characters, otherworlders in the cages, more than the main ones.

This semester I am taking 4 classes and I have 10 textbooks. This is for my creative writing for English majors class.

I‘m so excited for this semester to begin, starts on Monday, and I have already cracked this book open! Yay!

Starting this one tonight!!! Just needed something to read after a long day at my college orientation. Which was amazing, btw.

I really liked the first book in this series, which I‘ll post about when I can so I have moderate hopes.

I‘m a fan! I liked the main characters, both male and female.
I liked 5e fact that Stephanie/Jake isn‘t a classic Argeneau man. He isn‘t as Alpha: confident, strong, and moody, as the other main character men have been from the series.

He questions, he misunderstands, he‘s not particularly happy as a vampire and he seems genuine. I liked this one and I‘m glad I went back to pick it up.

I finished it as an ebook and not audible!

The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides

I finally finished! The baby only interrupted 3 times but I pretty much read the last 300 pages in one sitting and now it‘s 5am lol

I would definitely recommend. I liked the main characters, the premise, the mystery behind it all and even the writing style. I‘m definitely a fan of this Alex guy 😂 it‘s crazy this is his debut novel!

I‘m open to chatting if anyone want to discuss this book!

8little_paws I haven't read it yet because it's so hard to get at the library! But it's on my radar. 5mo
JadeBethJ It was at mine too! I was literally number 85 in line. Even getting it as a Ebook had a long wait! 5mo

You Belong To Me | Mary Higgins Clark

Pickpick

First, let me just say I freaking LOVE Mary Higgins Clark. As a kid, I went through and crime, thriller and mystery phase. I was obsessed with it all.

Anyway, this book was fantastic! I always love it when my thriller or mysteries have a romantic subplot. It just makes me a bit gooey inside. But better beware with this one.

Anyway, this book was phenomenal! I was so blown away with MHC! I loved the suspense, the characters, the way she has so many suspects and everyone has a possible motive. Just fantastic!

Ok.
Ok.
I will admit, I‘m not exactly sure which book in this series I read first. I‘m also going to review the series because so far, I‘ve read the first 4.

I‘ll say this, I LOVED it!!! I loved the characters. I loved the paranormal world. I loved the witty heroines and the masculine but gentlemen men...lol I just enjoy what she‘s done.

I didn‘t like this one.
At first I struggled to get through the first chapter. I just didn‘t like the writing style and as a writer myself I knew I wasn‘t going to get through the book, let alone the series.

Then under the behest of a suuuuper big fan of the series I tried again. Got further in but eventually I nixed it.

audraelizabeth Maybe try audio? 5mo
JadeBethJ Tried it. I‘m just not a fan. 5mo
Feenbraut Out of curiosity: what is your favourite book? 5mo
JadeBethJ I can‘t possibly have just one! But at the moment it‘s Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. Read it last year and loved it. 5mo

I didn‘t like this book at all.

I really tried and even put it down and came back to it. I didn‘t like the tone, the prose or the characters.
It just wasn‘t my cup of tea, but I hear there are tons who loved it.

Thank the library gods! I was like 110 in line for this book but it was sitting by the door when I got home from the gym. I‘m so excited.

I‘ve heard FANTASTIC things about this book! I‘m feeling down after the gym so hopefully this picks my spirits up.

I‘ve had this book for some time but I‘m just now getting around to reading it. I think I might enjoy it. Fingers crossed I learn something!

BulkingBookie Reading this too! It's not the most philosophically tight book you'll ever read, but it does reframe some things you might be stuck on, through suprising bolts of wisdom and fun. Just don't expect heaps of coherence 😅 6mo
JadeBethJ You‘re right! I try not to go into these types of books expecting too much. Things that are supposed to teach you how to “life” are to always be taken with a grain of salt. Everyone is different but I try to at least look at what they are trying to say and see how I can apply it to my life. 6mo
Chelleo I started the audiobook but put it on pause. I think I‘d like it more if Samuel Jackson narrated it 😂 5mo

This book is one of my favorite books by James Patterson and David Ellis. They are definitely a dynamic duo! I have read this book 3 more times since I bought it and loved it each time.

I even got my book club to read it and they loved it too

So I was at the library yesterday and I found this book by Harlan Coben that seemed really interesting. I wanted to buy it but spent my cash at the farmer's market.

Turns out...I found this today. I already own the book 😂
How crazy is that!
Anyway, this one is going on the to read list!

It's 730am on a quiet #SaturdayMorning.

I've tended to my plants, that have seen too much sun, fed the baby, poured a jug of water, and now I can relax on the patio with Blake Crouch.

This is the life.

Dark Matter | Blake Crouch

Dark Matter is one of the best books I‘ve ever read. Definitely a favorite of 2018.
I legit finished it in one sitting, in just a few hours, and almost cried at the end. Absolutely amazing.

Really makes you think about the avenues of life.

This was one of my favorite reads of 2018 and I recommend it to almost everyone.
The writer spins words so beautifully. It wasn‘t my first choice in topics and I went in thinking it would be different but the symbolism of the the woods just blew me away. I actually put this BACK on my TBR pile so I could read it again.

I had never read Good Omens, or even heard of it really, until the show came out. Then I was like I HAVE to read the book first.

This was the first book I read by Lynsay Sands. It was freshman year of high school and I actually made my first friend because we were both reading the same book. Years later I own so many in this series.

Nute That‘s a cool memory. None of my closest childhood friends are readers, but I have made some very dear NEW friends because of reading!🙂 5mo

LiterarySloth Phantoms is a good one. My all time favorite Koontz is Watchers. That was my first Koontz novel given to me by my dad. 6mo
