For the past few years I’ve eagerly awaited the start of summer because with it comes so many new thrillers! The Girl from Widow Hills by Megan Miranda was one of my most anticipated summer reads, and I was so happy when I got an electronic copy. It’s the fourth book by this author I’ve read, and I was so excited to see what it was about.
Do you ever wonder if there is another version of yourself living in a parallel universe? And if so, how their life is playing out differently from yours? This is exactly what Again Again by E. Lockhart explores. In her latest book, we see how one girl’s life changes across different timelines based on the choices she makes.
This week my “top 5” list was put together for my friend Amy, who asked for recommendations on spooky ghost stories. I love reading creepy books, and had so much fun putting this one together. Whether you’re able to handle some serious paranormal action, or want something on the lighter side to only dip your toes into the horror genre, you’ll be able to find something on this list.
Last week, after posting my list of Top 5 Books to Read if You Love Reality TV, I told friends I’d curate other book lists for them on specific topics or genres they were interested in. I had quite a few requests, so it’s my new quarantine goal to put together one list per week! This week we’re looking at five books to read if you love Victorian England. This request came from Caitlin at My Tech Wardrobe.
“Grief I told you is always, but grieving — more often intermittent. “
Riven is a small collection of poetry by Catherine Owen that explores the process of grief by reflecting on nature.
It was a unique collection, and one that I read slowly because I wanted to take time to reflect on each poem. Many of them packed a lot of emotion and feelings into so few words, and rushing through each one wouldn’t give the writing any justice.
Teenage assassins, witches, magic, ghosts, and a full cast of incredibly diverse characters? What doesn’t this book have? When I first heard about The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass by Adan Jerreat-Poole, I immediately signed in to NetGalley to request an ARC, and I’m so happy I did.
My attention span for reading is usually pretty great. Typically, I’m able to sit and read without interruption for hours on end. But lately, given all this *gestures at the dark void that has become our planet* my ability to read has dwindled. I’ve found myself grabbing shorter books and lots of graphic novels, and when I really can’t focus, I put on reality TV shows.
Netflix’s timing has been perfect, in a way. What better time has there ever been to binge-watch reality shows? I’ve made my way through Love is Blind, recently finished Too Hot To Handle, and am eagerly looking for a new show to fill my time.
One of my friends suggested I write a post about these shows, but instead, in true book nerd fashion, I’ve put together a list of five books to read if you love reality TV.
