10/10 holiday romance. Couldn‘t put it down once I started it

Such a good read. Was grinning while reading from start to finish. I really connected with the characters, truly a 10/10

Carrie | Stephen King

Was this book traumatic? Yes. Was it scary? Kind of. Out of all the phycological thrillers I‘ve read, I really expected such a famous book to be better.

The Cousins | Karen M. Mcmanus
Mehso-so

After loving the other books - One of us is Lying, One of Us is Next, I was disappointed by this one. Too many characters and jumping back and forth, choppy plot line, too many unfilled holes. Not a bad book but not a good one either.

This was a Rollercoaster from start to finish. Dramatic yet genuine and honest. Funny and heartbreaking. Highly recommend.

Honestly couldn‘t put this one down. Such a cute read from start to finish. Cheesy? Kind of. Addicting? Definitely. Read it in one day. Honestly also all of my goals in a book

Usually not a fan of historical fiction, but this one had me hooked. Loved the characters and the plot. Learned a lot and enjoyed every page

Meet Me in Paradise | Libby Hubscher

This book was an easy cute read until about 2/3rd through. Then it jumped from about a 6 to a strong 8 out of 10 for me. Loved the writing style and how connected I felt to the characters.

Could not stand this one. Truly didn‘t understand the point even at the end, only finished because it was a book club book, but it was brutal. Had to skim. Tough to read writing style, didn‘t care about the characters.

Mother May I: A Novel | Joshilyn Jackson

Kept me turning the pages quicker and quicker. Didn‘t want to stop reading so I could find out what happens next. Started out slow but about 3-4 chapters in it really picked up. Lots of surprises I wasn‘t expecting.

The Good Sister: A Novel | Sally Hepworth

One of the more twisted books I‘ve read recently. I wasn‘t into it to begin with but it really grabbed me near the middle. Solid 6.8/10 pick if you‘re looking for something unsettling and mysterious. Also improved my understanding of sensory processing issues as a side bonus.

Different from my usual read, but very informative and interesting. A great gift for any fan of The Office! Not quick, but enjoyable and memorable… (That‘s what she said)

Amazing beach read, so sweet. Definitely would recommend. Couldn‘t put it down and loved the characters.

One of Us Is Next | Karen M. Mcmanus

Not as good as the first in the series but still a decent pick. Finished it in a day. Wanted more believability in the characters. Also felt like there were too many characters to keep up with that we weren‘t connected enough to follow

One Of Us Is Lying | Karen McManus
Pickpick

So nice to get back to a thrill type book! Still teen YA-type, but good suspense. Wasn‘t expecting the ending, and could‘ve been a better ending, but not a disappointing read. The writing kept me reading and wanting to turn the page

Red, White & Royal Blue | Casey McQuiston

This book was unexpected clever and a quirky fun read. Much more realistic and relatable than I anticipated. Not super heavy but real. Enjoyable characters. Definitely a summer break recommendation

Really enjoyed this one. Wasn‘t expecting it to have the twists it did but truly loved it. Something you‘re not expecting

Wow such a good read! Perfect poolside book, but also one you won‘t want to put down. Truly addictive. Started off just sweet and quirky and then quickly turned into something I was deeply emotionally invested in. Cannot recommend enough

Cool for the Summer | Dahlia Adler

While I loved the genuineness of the characters in this book, the overall writing was a little cliche. It was a sweet easy read. Really relatable. Liked it just couldn‘t bring myself to love it.

Perks of Being a Wallflower | Stephen Chbosky
Mehso-so

Read this one cause despite the hype, I‘ve never read it before. Made me uncomfortable to read and maybe that was the point. I appreciate the effort to cover really tough topics from a young perspective. However, it‘s really not super believable and slightly cliche. Kind of enjoyed reading it but really just wanted to get through it.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book! The modern side felt a bit underdeveloped, but the older sections were very interesting. I wanted to know more about the characters. However, overall a very enjoyable read. Would recommend.

Ugly Love: A Novel | Colleen Hoover

Honestly one of my fav reads. Hot, yet sweet, and emotionally deep read. I wanted more. Could‘ve even used more about main characters backstories. But such a solid book.

Sanatorium | Sarah Pearse

Wanted to like this book since I love thrillers and this type of thing. It was a good concept and setting but pathetic twist and bad ending. Also slow and difficult to read. Not a favorite at all.

This was definitely a cotton candy read, but I don‘t regret reading it. Empowering, light hearted, and fun. Made me want to go on a cruise ASAP

I adore this book. Such a fluff, feel good book but I couldn‘t put it down. Relatable characters, great genuine writing style. Beach or lazy day read. So so good.

As a thriller fan, and a fan of the show “You,” I really expected to love this one. However, it felt predictable and fell a little flat. I understand the characters, but they weren‘t believable. I wanted to love it so badly, but it just wasn‘t quite what I wanted it to be.

Outlawed | Anna North

Honestly wouldn‘t have finished this one if it wasn‘t being read for a book club. Truly confusing, contrived, and tried too hard to make a point that wasn‘t even clearly supported. Didn‘t empathize with the characters. Really did not enjoy

review

Pickpick

As thrillers go, this was a solid pick. Probably about a 7/10. I liked that it was fast paced, with strong characters. Good backgrounds and history for them. An ending you don‘t see coming. There were some plot holes I wish could‘ve been filled, and some twists were predictable. But overall a good read

review

Didn‘t know what to expect with this one, but was a sweet heart warming book. I liked the duality of the characters and depth of their stories. Could‘ve had more twists, but was a very enjoyable, touching read.

I started this book because it was free, expecting an easy fluff read. I got so much more than that. Unexpected twists, lovable characters, and more heart than I‘ve ever seen in a book. Definitely recommend.

What She Left Behind | Tracy Bilen
Pickpick

While not my favorite historical novel, I did enjoy this read. It was tragic, heartfelt, and deep. The ending felt too easy, and one half of the story felt much more developed than the other. Still overall a worthwhile read, a decent 7/10

review

A decent thriller, though not the best I‘ve read. It lacked a little bit of character development and the ending twist felt forced. It was shocking but almost too unbelievable. Probably a 6/10 read.

And Then You Loved Me | Inglath Cooper
Pickpick

I started this one because it was free with Amazon Kindle Unlimited. Wasn‘t expecting much. However, this was a beautiful story about family, identity, and love. It may be about a certain church or religion but it is relatable to everyone. I found myself identifying with nearly every character in some way or another. One of the most surprisingly good reads I‘ve found

This is officially one of my new favorite books. It deals with grief so beautifully. Its characters are so genuine and real. Amazing story 10/10

Bloodline | Jess Lourey

A wild, crazy ride from start to finish. Great story idea, but could‘ve used more character development and moments made me nauseous to read. However, still would recommend for a different type of suspense book. Lots of Get Out vibes

Sometimes I Lie | Alice Feeney
Pickpick

This book was good. I really liked the premise of it and I love Feeney‘s stuff. The only way this one fell a little short for me was that the story was sometimes confusing and muddled between all the flipping back and forth through time and perspective. I felt like some of the plot points got lost in it all

This was twisted in every way. A great story, kept me turning the page. Psychologically messed up characters. Honestly still confused on the ending though and how it worked out.

*POTENTIAL SPOILERS* One of the best books I‘ve read in a while. A seemingly sweet, candy read with surprising depth. I loved the voice of the characters and the genuine look at what it means to be bisexual and a woman. Couldn‘t put it down

Huge fan of this historical novel! Such a thrill to read and very believable characters. Really felt empathy for nearly every narrator as Quinn took us through their journeys. 10/10, very enjoyable!

Out of all the thrillers I‘ve read, this one had so much heart and depth of character. I loved the uniqueness of the story and the believable twists it had. Truly a standout amongst thrillers and suspense novels.

Though it started a little slow, this book had a great twist ending. I liked the concept and story a lot. Could‘ve used more character development from many side characters, and would like to know what happens next. Overall, a solid pick

Untamed | Glennon Doyle
Mehso-so

This book was art. It was self expression in a high form. There were many nuggets of truth and valuable thought. That being said, it was hard to really get into, hard to put myself in the story because it was so firmly someone else‘s. I admire Doyle‘s self discovery and happiness, but I don‘t know that this book was as valuable for readers as it was for herself.

A great concept and story. As someone who‘s very interested in the law process, I thoroughly enjoyed getting inside the courtroom for this one. Great character development and unpredictable twists throughout.
