Everything Is Not Always What It Seems

I have been in a thriller slump lately with the twists ending up a little flat. Unfortunately, it was the same for this story. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t enjoyable, I really liked this story and for a while I had no idea where it was going. There are little Easter eggs in it that point you in the right direction, you just need to look for them.

House Of Horrors

This book was quite the page turner for me, I could not put it down. The time jumps are fast and a little confusing at first, but I think that added to the what is going to happen next excitement. Unfortunately, for me, the ending was completely underwhelming. There was no big twist or even happy ending, the one twist was predictable. It leaves a sad taste in my mouth considering how much I was enjoying it.

How Does The Other Half Live

This story is so intricately told that no synopsis will do it justice. There is so many little details that make this story up and how everything builds. Their lives are all complicated and it feels like you have read every part of those lives. I really enjoyed how this story was compiled with a nonlinear timeline, but it was still incredibly easy to follow. Every character had stories that made them enjoyable and relate-able in some way to everyone. This was a great book to read during Black History Month and there are lessons inside for everyone. Although it took me longer to get hooked than I would have liked, I did really like this book.

When Plans Don’t Go As Planned

The Dating Plan by Sara Desai was a very pleasant surprise. This book was such a nice way to warm up this January. This wasn’t just a nice heartwarming romcom, but the sex scenes were HOT. I had no idea the detail we would be getting into here, but just bravo.

Here’s To 2021

This was a great book to end my year on and I was excited to have an on-theme book for New Years. We have all had a long journey this year and sometimes a story of hope for love, work, and self-growth is exactly what we need to move into 2021.

Can You Really Escape Your Past?

This book jumps from a young Paul Adams to his now adult self. Paul is pulled back to his hometown of Gritten to see his mom as she slowly fades away in Hospice care. He had avoided returning to Gritten since he left for college and he doesn’t particularly enjoy being back now and those feelings intensify as things start happening that stirs up the past he has tried to forget.

Sex, Drugs, and Rock’n’Roll?

This story takes you for a wild ride. Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid has been a book that I kept putting off because the format was intimidating to me. I was so sure I wasn’t going to like it that I kept waiting to read it. Well I FINALLY read it and now I’m soContinue reading “Sex, Drugs, and Rock’n’Roll?”

Is A Book Subscription Worth It?

I have always had a hard time picking what to read next, call it indecisiveness or just plain picky. I walk around bookstores and read the back of what feels like hundreds of books and still have a hard time choosing. Then I joined a book subscription where you get a certain amount of choicesContinue reading “Is A Book Subscription Worth It?”
