This is the first of a new series for middle grade that I absolutely LOVED!! It has darker humor comparable to Lemony Snicket, very fun and funny. Pick this one up Dec 8th. Thank you to Simon & Schuster for the finished copy to review!!

This was excellent! A very unique story told from the perspectives of three women told in both the late 1700s and modern day about an apothecary that dealt in deadly poisons. Really enjoyed it! This one releases in early March, don‘t miss it! Thank you to Harper Collins for the ARC!

Daaaaang this book was so good and intense!!! Be prepared for some pretty unlikeable characters but that‘s what makes this story so great! I loved it!!

Graciouswarriorprincess I just finished it! It was great especially that twist! 2y
Mirandareads @Graciouswarriorprincess I agree!! Loved it so much! 2y
Graciouswarriorprincess @Mirandareads The author will be on the Today Show Friday (day after Thanksgiving) with the Read with Jenna book club. I think it‘s between 10-11 am. 2y
Mirandareads That‘s awesome thanks for letting me know. I‘ll be working at that time. Busiest time for us! Coincidentally at an independent bookstore 😊🤓📚, but I‘m telling everyone about it on Monday! 2y

Wow!!!! I tore through this memoir/true crime book. This is such a bonkers story and a serial killer I had yet to hear about. If you love true crime, this is for you! Many many thanks to Simon & Schuster for the advanced copy. This will definitely be one to pick up when it releases in early March!

I loved every single bit of this classic by Lawrence Durrell. This is only the first of the Alexandrian Quartet but I definitely plan on reading them all as time allows. This was one I really had to take time with and soak in every word. Just beautiful. 💜💜💜

What an incredible and fascinating memoir this is. I will forever hold it dear. This is not a book I normally would have chosen, but so grateful that I did. I highly recommend it. You will be captivated from the first page until the end. What I wouldn‘t give to sit down with this woman and have a conversation. 💜👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

This was my favorite Alice Feeney novel yet. I LOVED this twisty murder mystery. When Christine Dalcher said “Feeney has single-handedly made the bookmark obsolete,” she was NOT mistaken!

I couldn‘t have read this book at a better time. An absolutely wonderful story of man who hears of a shaman that can heal everything wrong with you in three days, and the journey and process that then enfolds. Beautiful, moving, deep, and so much more. I LOVE this book! 💜

This is incredibly devastating and heart breaking. That being said it is also beautiful in its own right. I‘ve yet read an author that evokes the emotion in me that Jeanine Cummins can. This was so distressing it had me physically shaking. I‘m saddened her family had to endure all it did but I‘m happy knowing she‘s made an impact with this book.

Grady Hendrix is my favorite, my absolute favorite!!! It really amazes me how he can write about something as overdone as vampires and still provide a fresh, unique, and scary story! He‘s done the same with his novels in the past and I continue to look forward to ANYTHING he puts out. Loved this story about book clubs, stay-at-home moms, the 90s, and of course....a vampire ☠️😈☠️

This was a pretty heavy book but I thought it was done very well!! Told from different perspectives this story is one that will haunt me for awhile. It deals with domestic abuse and the secrets that we carry.

I enjoyed Stephen King‘s newest novel about an institute that experiments on children showing signs of telekinesis and telepathy. I liked this more than his earlier novel The Outsider but it‘s still lacking that old spark he used to have. It‘s worth the read though! 👍🏼

I LOVED this book!! This is Stephen Chbosky‘s first adult debut and it‘s in the genre of horror so I couldn‘t be happier! LOTS of creep factor here, biblical references, and a strong mother/son bond. As much as I loved this book, this is not for everyone...

Spontaneously combusting children is the premise here - as crazy as that sounds it comes across completely normal. This is a hilarious and endearing novel about what it means to be family.

Ninth House | Leigh Bardugo
post image
Pickpick

I absolutely loved this book! Ninth House is Leigh Bardugo‘s Adult Fantasy debut. I found myself actually putting this down because I didn‘t want it to end 🤣. It definitely ends on a cliffhanger so there will be more! Be prepared for some major triggers, ghosts, gore, magic, and secret societies 😈.

Hannah_Haymond I'm SO excited for this one to come out next week... but this is the 3rd or 4th post I've read mentioning trigger warnings in it. Are you able to elaborate, even just high level? I don't want to be caught off guard 3y
Mirandareads @Hannah_Haymond Triggers for sexual assault! 3y
Hannah_Haymond @Mirandareads Sigh. Ok. Good to know, thank you for the info! 3y

This was very different from what I had expected. It is an excellent coming of age novel! Beautifully written 💜.

Pruzy I agree! It was well written, although I feel the advertising for this book oversold the horror elements 3y
Mirandareads @Pruzy I completely agree!! I‘ve seen people commenting on how excited they were to read it with a #horror. I want to warn them but then again I feel they might benefit from reading it 😁. 3y
Pruzy @Mirandareads It was still an emotionally moving story with horror adjacent elements! 3y

I was able to get about three quarters through this one and then just couldn't do it any longer. There are really funny parts but the majority is so all over the place and at times overally detailed that it was very hard to stick with it.
