WWW Wednesday (August 9) What Are You Reading Today?

untitled

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. IT’s a blog that is open to anybody who wants to share what they’ve been reading. All you have to do is answer the three questions below and share a link to your blog in the comments section of Sam’s blog so she can read what you’re reading too!

The 3 W’s are:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

A similar meme I’ve also seen posted on my blog feed is one called This Week in Books and is hosted by Lipsyy Lost and Found.

How I Lost You by Jenny Blackhurst:

I have no memory of what happened but I was told I killed my son. And you believe what your loved ones, your doctor and the police tell you, don’t you? My name is Emma Cartwright. Three years ago I was Susan Webster, and I murdered my twelve-week-old son Dylan. I was sent to Oakdale Psychiatric Institute for my crime, and four weeks ago I was released early on parole with a new identity, address, and a chance to rebuild my tattered life. This morning, I received an envelope addressed to Susan Webster. Inside it was a photograph of a toddler called Dylan. Now I am questioning everything I believe because if I have no memory of the event, how can I truly believe he’s dead? If there was the smallest chance your son was alive, what would you do to get him back?

The Breakdown by B.A. Paris:

This was a book I definitely enjoyed while being on vacation. It was the right amount of creepy, the right amount of twists and turns and it definitely had me on the edge of my seat through most of the read. Head here to check out my full review.

Dead Woman Walking by Sharon Bolton:

I won a free ARC from Minotaur Books and the CJSREADS girls over on Instagram.

Just before dawn in the hills near the Scottish border, a man murders a young woman. At the same time, a hot-air balloon crashes out of the sky. There’s just one survivor. She’s seen the killer’s face – but he’s also seen hers. And he won’t rest until he’s eliminated the only witness to his crime. Alone, scared, trusting no one, she’s running to where she feels safe – but it could be the most dangerous place of all.

Set to be released September 5th, 2017


Well there you have it! My WWW Wednesday. I’d like to hear what you’re currently reading and what your thoughts are on your book! If you read more than one, please still share or share your favorite of the bunch! I love hearing what you all have to say!

Throwback Thursday (August 3, 2017)

Hello fellow bloggers!

I am so excited to be safe and sound in Maryland. Our flight last night had to stay up in the air an extra 10-15 minutes because of storm cells that covered the city right before we had to land. We hit some turbulence (nothing horrendous) and are now safely enjoying the hot sun and air conditioning!

The Throwback Thursday meme was created by Rene over at It’s Book Talk. She made this meme to share some of our old favorites as well as sharing books that we want to read that were published over a year ago. Lord knows we all have a big enough TBR pile, but this is such a great way to share recommendations!

I am missing. Held captive by a blue-eyed stranger. To mark the twelve days of Christmas, he gives me a gift every day, each more horrible than the last. The twelfth day is getting closer. After that, there’ll be no more Christmas cheer for me. No mince pies, no carols. No way out. But I have a secret. No-one has guessed it. Will you?

I read this novel thanks to Pegasus Books last year around Christmas time and what a book it was! Please head on over to my review if you’d like to know more on what I thought of the novel! Dying for Christmas review.

Good morning bloggers!

Once again, I am so sorry for being MIA lately. It was a busy weekend/week. We went down to a 3 day country music festival and since we’ve come home this past Monday I’ve been playing catch up on everything!

On the surface, Kit Caldwell has it all. A senior in college with her future ahead of her, lots of friends, lots of parties … not to mention also having the eye of Tommy, the star quarterback of the football team. But underneath, kit’s life is a charade, built on a foundation of secrets and lies, including one so dark it threatens to tear her world apart: her twin sister, Cat, was kidnapped when they were both seven, never to be heard from again. That is, until one dark Halloween night. But is it really Cat? Or is it someone else, someone playing a sinister and deadly game? To save herself from imminent danger, Kit, with the help of Tommy and her friends, is forced to go back in time and confront her own personal demons, as she finally discovers what really happened to Cat, all those years ago.


When the time comes on this never ending TBR pile, I cannot wait to read this novel. Everything about it screams my name to read. I might just have to bump it up on the list!

Goodreads Monday: Hidden Bodies (YOU #2)

Whew what a week folks! How was your week? My week last week was obnoxiously busy/crazy. Tuesday – Thursday, our best friends from Montana came home and spent as much time with them as possible. Then we got some serious thunderstorms Wednesday night into Thursday morning and lightning actually struck my house. Hit so hard, it took out half of our breaker, blew light bulbs throughout the house and we lost all cable/internet/phone connection. It was a mess. We almost have everything back up and running. Almost. Then this weekend we had our cousins wedding and just got home yesterday. I am still exhausted!

So now that I am back and ready to get back into the swing of things, Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. To take part, simply choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Be sure to check out Laruen’s blog and link back to add your own links!

Today the book I’m going to show off is: Hidden Bodies (YOU #2).

 23492288

Publication Date: February 23, 2016

Publisher: Atria/Emily Bestler Books

Goodreads Synopsis:

Joe Goldberg is no stranger to hiding bodies. In the past ten years, this thirty-something has buried four of them, collateral damage in his quest for love. Now he’s heading west to Los Angeles, the city of second chances, determined to put his past behind him. In Hollywood, Joe blends in effortlessly with the other young upstarts. He eats guac, works in a bookstore, and flirts with a journalist neighbor. But while others seem fixated on their own reflections, Joe can’t stop looking over his shoulder. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don’t always stay that way. They re-emerge, like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: true love. And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he’s more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn’t want to hurt his new girlfriend – he wants to be with her forever. But if she ever finds out what he’s done, he many not have a choice.

My Thoughts:

This book has been on my TBR list since I read the first book Caroline Kepnes wrote, YOU. YOU if you’ve read any of my blogs will know it has been one of my top favorite books! I have praised this book the minute I closed the back cover and I only hope the second book will be just as good. The only thing that has stopped me from reading it is because I have not heard the best reviews compared to the first. I’ve heard that Joe’s character is not the same and this really bums me out because I actually fell in love with a villain in YOU. Go read my review for YOU written by Caroline Kepnes.


Have your read this novel? If so, what were your thoughts without giving too much away?!

Goodreads Monday: Brother by Ania Ahlborn

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. To take part, simply choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Be sure to check out Lauren’s blog and link back to add your own links!

Today the book I’m going to show off is: Brother by Ania Ahlborn.

23492624

Publication Date: September 29, 2015

Publisher: Gallery Books

Goodreads Synopsis:

From the bestselling horror author of Within These Walls and The Bird Eater comes a brand-new novel of terror that follows a teenager determined to break from his family’s unconventional – and deeply disturbing – traditions. Deep in the heart of Appalachia stands a crooked farmhouse miles from any road. The Morrows keep to themselves, and it’s served them well so far. When girls go missing off the side of the highway, the cops don’t knock on their door. Which is a good thing, seeing as to what’s buried in the Morrows; backyard.

But nineteen-year-old Michael Morrow isn’t like the rest of his family. He doesn’t take pleasure in the screams that echo through the trees. Michael pines for normalcy, and he’s sure that someday he’ll see the world beyond West Virginia. When he meets Alice, a pretty girl working at a record shop in the small nearby town of Dahlia, he’s immediately smitten. For a moment, he nearly forgets about the monster he’s become. But his brother, Rebel, is all too eager to remind Michael of his place.

My Thoughts:

This book has been on my TBR list for a little while now and I look at it often sitting on my shelf. This book sounds so interesting to me. The synopsis alone sounds like there are going to be a lot of surprising twists and turns. For the fact that Michael wants to be a normal teenager, I have a feeling the family is going to stop at nothing to make sure he stays stuck in the world he is already living in. Very intriguing and I’m hoping that he escapes the life! I cannot wait to read this one, whenever I get to it!

The lives of the Barretts, a normal suburban New England family, torn apart when fourteen-year-old Marjorie begins to display signs of acute schizophrenia. To her parents’ despair, the doctors are unable to stop Marjorie’s descent into madness. As their stable home devolves into a house of horrors, they reluctantly turn to a local Catholic priest for help. Father Wanderly suggests and exorcism; he believes the vulnerable teenager is the victim of demonic possession. He also contacts a production company that is eager to document the Barretts’ plight. With John, Marjorie’s’ father, out of work for more than a year and the medical bills looming, the family agrees to be filmed, and soon find themselves the unwitting stars of The Possession, a hit reality television show. When events in the Barrett household explode in tragedy, the show and the shocking incidents it captures become the stuff of urban legend. Fifteen years later, a bestselling writer interviews Marjorie’s younger sister Merry. As she recalls those long ago events that took place when she was just eight year old, long-buried secrets and painful memories that clash with what was broadcast on television begin to surface.

I am not usually big on paranormal reads but this book seems to just grab my attention with the synopsis.
