If you told me I was going to tear up reading a book about goat farms and a ghost I would have told you you were nuts; but here we are! I absolutely loved this book. #aardvark

I felt like I wanted to skip past some of these chapters, but overall the payoff was good and I did read it in a day because I wanted to know how it all turned out. Ruth Ware is an instant purchase for me but I may be taking a break. #botm

I really love this series and the characters. This one wasn‘t as gruesome as the first and I think I wound up liking this one even more than the first. Preordered the third and can‘t wait to see how this concludes.

HIDDEN VALLEY ROAD. | ROBERT. KOLKER

Pickpick

This was an excellent true story about a family of 12 where half of the siblings (all brothers) have schizophrenia. The toll this has on the family, the victims there were as a result; all had the possibility of making this story seem hopeless. Yet it was hopeful! I hope pharma and others continue the path to understanding this disease and finding safe treatment.

I think I went in to this one with too high expectations; it was compared to Thursday Murder and Knive‘s Out and this book just wasn‘t as engrossing as those two for me. That said it was a decent murder mystery with lots of family history to unravel. #aardvark

This was really cute and definitely an interesting STEM approach to meeting your soulmate. That said I know I want 🌶️ in my romance and this was definitely mild salsa.

I went back and forth in liking this book but I‘m happy I stuck with it. A good study on how a woman‘s success can easily be overshadowed, society‘s acceptance of diminishing a woman‘s talent, and how easily it can be to become lost in a relationship. #BOTM

I really enjoyed this creepy book about “sleepers”. It really underscores the lengths people would go in their grief. Excited to talk about this one at book club. I realized I started this awhile back and never finished it but book club helped me dive back in and I am so glad I did.

Ok I must officially be in my sappy era because I loved this book. #aardvark did it again by introducing me to a genre and author I never would have tried and I am all the happier for it. Definitely picking up the next book by this author.

This book snagged me because I wanted to figure out the mystery but ultimately was a very anticlimactic, depressing end. I think the ending was meant to be hopeful but honestly left me concerned. I didn‘t like this #aardvark pick.

This is a cute murder mystery with characters I‘ll likely follow in their adventures at the Pinnacle. My #aardvark backlist is getting smaller, don‘t know why I never get picked for their surveys and BOTY voting but here‘s hoping this helps since I‘ve been a member since their start.

Call me crazy but this book about serial killers who fall in love has endearing characters who you root for. Some crazy trigger warnings…and it will possibly cause you to skip cookies and cream ice cream for a bit 😝 IYKYK. Spicy and fun and definitely up for book 2. #BOTM

This was such an intriguing mix of murder mystery, eco terrorism and VanderMeer-esque ecological anomalies. Plus beasts! Basically I‘m here to say it had it all and I loved every minute. Hope there is a book 2 so we get to see how Ana and Dinios‘ partnership flourishes.

March #botm selections for me! I have three of the main picks already via ARCs or pre-orders so I struggled to find a main pick this month. Maybe I‘ll be pleasantly surprised by this main pick which is definitely not one I would have picked normally.

February is a 6 book month for #aardvark and #botm club boxes. Can‘t wait to read these! Aardvark continues to really impress me with their selections. If anyone is on the fence to join all I can say is I don‘t think you‘d be disappointed!

ICantImReading They both had such great selections this month!! I got 5 between the two, but also put a lot of library holds in 😀 5mo
Megabooks I was so tempted by House from aardvark, but ended up with two others. You‘re right about the selection! 5mo

I am such a fan of SJM books; I like that this series is set in present day. This mixed murder mystery, cop procedural with fantasy and was just pure perfection in my eyes! Not as much spice in this but still plenty of romance. On to book 2 and book 3 is published this week. Spredges by my husband ❤️
Book 4 of 2024!

Book 1 of 2024 and I‘m afraid it was not a winner for me. This book had all the aspects that would typically hook me and not let me stop reading and yet I found myself distracted throughout this book. Overall, an ok revenge tale, but not one that will stay with me. 2.5 ⭐️

This book was told from three view points with one view point being if Evelyn Hugo was a serial killer. Sounds intriguing, but ultimately it all fell flat for me. The twists I found expected and I saw the ending coming. If you‘re in the market for a fast paced thriller this is enjoyable enough. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thank you NetGalley and St.

If you told me that in 2023 I would be enjoying romantasy fiction I would have thought you lost your mind. But here we are and I‘m the one losing my mind for these types of books. Really enjoying this series so far; this was the second book in this series. I like Hawke more than the female MC.

Devoured all of these really fast and then forgot to write my review! I‘m officially a Maas convert and look forward to reading more by her. Admittedly I like ACOTAR more but this series had me fully invested it he characters to the point I mourned any losses. 5 ⭐️ reading experience.
