This was a nice quick YA thriller. At 12 years old Karin is “dropped” in the middle of the forrest with 3 other children left to find their way out. This is a regular tradition for her town but this year things go wrong.. 😱 this book goes between Karin and her moms perspectives 🥰

Reboot (Reboot #1) | Amy Tintera

This was a cute YA book with a fun concept! When people (mostly under 20) die, they have a chance at rebooting. The longer they‘re dead before coming back the ‘better‘ they are. Wren has the highest time with 178 minutes before rebooting. She‘s now training a 22 minutes, with little potential.

This was my April #doublebookspin @TheAromaofBooks 😁📚

ReaperOfTerrasen Amy Tintera is one of my favorites. I enjoy her books very much. 6mo

This was a super good mystery novel! I actually didn‘t see the end coming for once and it was wrapped up so nicely! I did have to get past how the main character gushed about how rich he is but besides that it was great! I was confused as to why he kept bringing up his friend Myron who had no relevance, then I realized this was a spin-off of the Myron Bolitar series. 😂

A girl vanishes for a week before her body turns up dead. Three years later Lucas puts together a podcast to try to find the missing pieces to solve the murder. As you can imagine, there is always more to the story...

This is my first Allison Brennan book but definitely not my last! I binged the book in 2 days whenever I had spare time. I actually downloaded her first novel on my kobo to make my way through all her books.

He has so many wild stories you couldn't imagine were real but they were. It can get a little violent but the detail makes you feel like you're at the crime scene! 🤯 SO GOOD!

This is my first Nevill book but I will definitely be reading more after looking into his other novels. I really enjoyed the first half of this book.. the second half was also great, don't get me wrong, but also pretty confusing 😅 I had to read a few Reddit posts to aid with the confusion but even they had unanswered questions. I think Nevill wanted to leave us feeling confused which he did brilliantly. 🤯📖
