⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Another hit from Riley Sager! Dive into the creepy & haunting atmosphere of the Bartholomew, Manhattans most secretive apartments. Only occupied by the elite, & any unsuspecting apartment sitters who are unfortunate enough to get the job. Jules is grieving, heartbroken & broke. With nowhere to go, she takes a job that seems too good to be true, & soon she‘ll discover that she‘s the Bartholomew‘s favorite kind of tenant. 🔪 #botm

A Nearly Normal Family | Mattias Edvardsson
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An engaging courtroom thriller told from 3 pov‘s, the father, a pastor, the daughter, the murder suspect, & the mother, a defense attorney. The story had enough mystery to keep the reader turning pages, but I enjoyed the humanity in each section. The struggles of a pastor to do what‘s necessary for his family, the hardships of being a teen & finding your purpose, a working mother‘s guilt. Not overly exciting, but still a good read #botm

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you enjoy middle grade that is made to entertain all ages and you‘ve been putting off the Percy Jackson books, you must put whatever you are reading aside and start them! They are really fun and entertaining. I love the mix of Greek mythology mixed with the modern world. Quick read! #percyjackson

The Bride Test | Helen Hoang

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Bride Test was super sweet, and I am officially a Helen Hoang fan. I think anyone who was a fan of her first novel will be happy with this read. Khai is a great character and it gives wonderful insight into the mind of someone with autism and how they process their feelings. #thebridetest #botm

The Last Mrs. Parrish | Liv Constantine
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️ So this book was slightly predictable with unlikable and unreliable characters. With that said, it was a quick and fun read. Amber is atrocious, and my dislike for her is what made this book a page turner. I don‘t want to give spoilers, but there is sensitive material towards the second half of the book that was def stomach turning. More psychological than thrilling! #thelastmrsparrish 💫

Sometimes I Lie | Alice Feeney
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sometimes I Lie is a page turner. There is an unsettling feeling about our unreliable narrator that ebbs and flows throughout the story. Quick read & intriguing, I flew through it. This book was pretty graphic at times & disturbing (NOT as disturbing as I Know Who You Are. I‘m still asking myself what the heck?) I‘ll def be following Feeney‘s work! I know now to expect her stories to “go there” 😂 if that makes sense #sometimesilie 💫

Normal People | Sally Rooney

Trying SO hard to get over the fact that the author doesn‘t use quotation marks 😣 It makes it nearly impossible for me to get into the story and it drives me CRAZY!!!!! I‘m trying not to be irrationally sad about it, and I‘m waiting for a new copy of When the Sky Fell On Splendor Bc my copy came with the pages all hot glued together 😐 book of the month fail so far!!! #normalpeople #botm

Kimberlone A lot of European and Latin American writers write dialogue like this. It can be a difficult adjustment at first but I think it‘s just a matter of reading more books that are written with this convention. I remember reading Angela‘s Ashes when I was about 12-13 and I was very confused because that was first time I‘d seen an author write like that! 7mo
LazyLibrary @kimberlone I‘m determined to stick with it. It‘s always a struggle for me at first. I‘ve read books without them, but def prefer them!!!! I couldn‘t get into Severance a couple of botm‘s ago Bc of it, so maybe after this it will be a good time to try again while I‘m “quotation-free” 7mo
LazyLibrary I also feel like Requiem For A Dream was a difficult read Bc of it, but I could be mistaken. 7mo
allthingskayla Wait, no quotation marks?! 😩😬😳 7mo
LazyLibrary @allthingskayla ☹️ Not in this read. It‘s just a personal preference of mine, but usually reading is effortless, this I‘ll have to actually try haha 7mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #BOTM picks are on point. While Theo, our psychotherapist, comes off as slightly pathetic, and Alicia, our patient, is primarily silent, the need to know why she shot her husband kept me turning the pages. Each character we meet that came in contact with Alicia is shrouded in suspicion, none are likable. It‘s a quick read with a major twist!

I was 23 when I picked up the newly released Name of the Wind. I am now 35, and still waiting on the completion of this trilogy. It‘s looking like there will be a movie or tv series before us readers get an ending. I‘ve ultimately forgotten about this author and his books. Today a goodreads review caught my eye and I thought, oh yeah! That guy! I checked, but still no release date in sight! Anyone else been waiting over a decade for this!!??

julesG Yep! It's been ages since I first read it. 8mo

Verity | Colleen Hoover

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was a DARK book! But I enjoyed it. Not the typical Colleen Hoover story full of swoon worthy romance. The characters are not likable, & some of the material is hard to stomach. Kind of saw the twist coming, but it didn‘t ruin the book for me. I would encourage the author to continue to expand her genre! #verity #colleenhoover #thriller

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A cute & sexy love story involving an econometrician with autism & the escort she hired to teach her how to get down & dirty! Wasn't sure what to expect from this read & I'm not a huge fan of graphic sex in books, but this was really well done & sweet. Stella is inspiring & fantastic, & not held down by labels! The last read of 2018! #botm

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An Anonymous Girl certainly held my attention like any decent psychological thriller. A few twists and turns were predictable, but Jess and Doctor Shields are both compelling characters to follow. Loved the ending 😉 I find co-authored writing to be choppy, but I think these ladies do a perfect job. #botm

⭐️⭐️⭐️ mixed feelings on this one. Def an adrenaline rush, but in a bad anxious way. Fantastic writing, but pretty violent. Fast read, but stomach was clenched through most of it.

Nine Perfect Strangers | Liane Moriarty

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book is a lot like people watching. I wasn't expecting a thrilling plot full twists, but the story captivated me. Instead I met 9 people who I could relate to in a different way, some more than others. These characters made me chuckle, I felt embarrassed for some, & emotionally sympathetic to others. Masha, the house leader, is layered & intriguing. Moriarty's writing keeps the story moving at a fast pace #botm #nineperfectstrangers

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I'm throwing 5 stars at this bloody dark comedy. Almost didn't pick this one, but so happy I did. Anya is legit crazzzy!!!!! You'll find fashion and gore and humor all in one paragraph. I don't think this book is to be taken as seriously as a book like American Psycho, there is a similar vibe but not as yucky. I would compare it to the new show Insatiable on Netflix. Quick read! Under 300 pages! #botm #fashionvictim #darkhumor

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I used to spend summers in the Adirondacks & the campy atmosphere of this book sets a tone that I can relate to. I liked that there was a whisper of a ghost story inside of it. I feel it read very quick, & although it's not full of action the mystery lingers throughout. Ending gave me chills! Fun read! I assumed Riley Sager was a woman after reading Final Girls, idk why 🤷🏻‍♀️ I like his slightly unlikable female characters #botm

⭐️⭐️⭐️Delirium has been on by bookshelf for easily five years. I was in the mood for cheesy & finally cracked it open, but was surprised it wasn't as cheesy as hoped or expected. It's an interesting concept, a person wiped of the capability to love and feel love. It doesn't only touch on teenage relationships, but the love between friendships, family, becoming a mother. Cliffhanger warning! #review #delirium #dystopian
