I really can't believe that this is Yara's first book. She writes with the skill of someone who has been doing this for some time now. Her writing style is very poetic and hypnotic.

This book was unflinchingly honest and the subject matter regarding eating disorders, and their affect, not only on the individual, but those around them, is very important for young girls and women alike.

The Smiling Man | Joseph Knox
Pickpick

There was a lot going on in this book, but I really liked Joseph Knox's writing style and the gritty nature of this book. I didn't read the first book in this series, Sirens, but not sure if it was necessary. I am going to put his first book on my TBR list though. Official publish day is tomorrow!

Today's book haul. I'm only sad that the book "Dead Sky" was the UK version (with different title) of a book I already own. Damn these different titled books! Oh well... It was a $2 purchase.

Wow! What a great read! This book explores what some people will do for love and what some will do for money. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

The Au Pair | Emma Rous
Pickpick

Thank you so much to Goodreads giveaway and @Berkleypub for the ARC. Emma Rous definitely knows how to craft a spellbinding story. I was so wrapped up in this mystery and all the drama and by the end I could finally exhale! This story, though pretty tragic, ends with a sense of hope. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Riley Sager has delivered yet another really twisty and suspenseful story. I didn't know who I could trust, so everyone was a suspect. The last few pages sent a chill up my spine, and a sense of dread that I did not see coming. Thank you to Net Galley and Penguin Group Dutton for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. #TheLastTimeILied #NetGalley

I love when cities/towns in my state are referenced in a book I'm reading. My mom's family is from New England, so that's pretty cool this is where this book is based.

Ideas are like sphincters. Every asshole has one. Your take is what counts. I could walk into Fox today and sell a movie about a restaurant that serves baked monkey balls if I had the right take.

Truly Devious: A Mystery | Maureen Johnson
Pickpick

Holy cliffhanger, Batman! I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book, but it was chock full of mysteries that spanned from the 1930's to present time. Our protagonist, Stevie, is inspired to follow in the footsteps of fictional Detectives, Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot to figure out who committed the kidnapping and murders on her school's grounds. I'll have to wait until next year for the next book! Darn it!!

RaimeyGallant Sounds fun! Is it YA? 8mo

Loved this book so much! All the 80's references made me completely nostalgic! I want to listen to some 80's music, watch the shows/movies, and play some old school video games! So fun!
