Y‘all!! This book is just the best! It‘s fun, easy, lighthearted, and just an overall good read. I‘ve read all her other books and this is hands down my favorite!

The End of Her | Shari Lapena

I read quite a few books in March and enjoyed all but one of them. I know there have been mixed reviews on The End of Her, but I enjoyed it. I can see how if you were listening on audiobook it would be confusing with just one narrator. Overall, it was an excellent reading month.

I really enjoyed this book! I always love a good thriller, and being that I grew up in the area where this book was written made it that much more enjoyable. I could picture the exact women she was writing about.

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this from DJ Palmer and St Martin‘s press. It‘s been a while since a book has sucked me in from the very beginning. I started it tonight and am loving it so far.

I gave up on this book. I thought it was terrible and am trying to figure out why it had so many great reviews. Just not my thing.

The Guncle | Steven Rowley

I received a gift card to the local bookstore for Christmas and these were my picks! Can‘t wait to dive into this pile!

LiteraryinLawrence So colorful and inviting! 7mo
marleed Ohhh, you did good! 7mo
Aubgurl @LiteraryinLawrence one of my goals this year is to brighten up my bookcase and branch out of my normal genre. I read a TON of thrillers so my bookshelf is pretty dark. These were books from a different genre (aside from The Ballerinas) that I had wanted to read (The Guncle), was recommended by the bookstore (The UnHoneymooners) or I had read a previous book in the series (The Singles Table) The Bookish Life of Nina Hill sounded fun! 7mo
Aubgurl @marleed thanks! I can‘t wait to get started on them! I have the best local indie bookstore! 7mo

Christmas Bliss: A Novel | Mary Kay Andrews

Starting this Christmas book today. I need to read 5 more books before the year end to reach my NEW goal. My previous goal was 30. I‘ve blown that out of the water so now I‘m shouting for 75.

Every 6 weeks or so, a group of friends get together for a book swap. It‘s readers of all levels. Some people read one book every 6 weeks, some people read multiple books during that time. We have brunch, everyone describes the book (or books) that they brought, and then we draw numbers, which are usually on the back of a bookmark to take home. Everyone then goes in order and picks a book they want to take home to read. It‘s such a fun time!

Leftcoastzen That sounds fun! Great idea. 8mo

I finished The Collective (what a wild ride that was!) and am back to Christmas books. There‘s nothing like reading a Christmas book by the lights of the tree and the flow of the fire from the tv because it‘s too expensive to have a real fire😂🎄 #merrychristmas

The Collective: A Novel | Alison Gaylin

I decided I should read a few Christmas books to officially kick off the Christmas season, but now I‘m back to my favorite genre, thriller! So far, this book has me hooked! It‘s quick and easy to ready. Also, I‘m not sure the Angel on my tree is going to survive my cats😂🎄

The Wedding Date | Jasmine Guillory

Book Swap is one of my favorite Saturday morning activities. It‘s such a fun, clever idea and it introduces you to books in genres you may not normally read. Everyone draws a number (that‘s on a bookmark for you to take home) and after everyone talks about the book they brought, you go in order and choose a book to take home to read. If there‘s a book you really wanted but didn‘t get, the person can bring it back for the next meeting. #bookswap

Anxious People: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

I loved everything about this book. It was happy and sad. I laughed and I cried. In some way, I could relate to some part of every character. It‘s a beautiful picture of how deep down, everyone has some hurts and scars, no matter how out together people may seem. Such a lovely redemptive story.

Book of Accidents | Chuck Wendig

I liked this book. I was nervous going into it because while I like thrillers, I‘m not a huge fan of horror books. This one wasn‘t near as scary as I thought it would be. It‘s a long book but it‘s N easy read and has short chapters, which is nice.

This book was ok, not great. It was slightly predictable and some of the characters were just down right not needed. Also, I lost my seat to the cats when I got up to get a drink😂

The Plot | Jean Hanff Korelitz

I‘m enjoying this one so far, although it could be the scenery. The beginning of the book was a little slow and it‘s a very wordy book. I always enjoy a book within a book. It‘s like a 2 for 1 deal😂

Picked this book up after reading Survive the Night for an Instagram readathon I‘m doing. I need a book about a haunted houses and this one was perfect. It was creepy and gory and I read the whole thing today! It is one of the goriest books I‘ve read so if you don‘t like gore, this book probably isn‘t for you.

I REALLY wanted to like this book, but I just couldn‘t get. I have loved every other Riley Sager book but this one was just ridiculous. There were one or two twist but they weren‘t shocking and it was easy to guess who the bad guy was. So disappointed in this one.

Doghouzz Totally agree! I've enjoyed his other books, but this one was truly awful all the way through. 13mo

How many books is too many to take on vacation? I‘m sad I‘m going to miss my #botm box by a day, but I think I‘ve got some good books to keep me occupied.

Hooked_on_books There is no such thing as taking too many books on vacation! You need a selection, since who knows what you‘ll feel like reading each day? 13mo
Aubgurl @Hooked_on_books so true!! And no one wants to be stuck without a book! 13mo

This book! I have to say, the first 40 pages of this had my heart racing. I was so nervous!!! I was sucked in from the beginning. The only thing that kept me from finishing it in a day was work and sheer exhaustion😂 The first thing I did when I woke up this morning was pick it back up to finish. There are so many character to suspect and, just wow! If you‘re a fan of thrillers, this is a must read!

This book! It‘s been a long time since I read a book that I would think about in the middle of the night. This book is CREEPY!! You learn in the first chapter who the bad guy is and he spends the whole book seeking revenge. There‘s a twist at the end I didn‘t see coming. Such a great read!
