I’ve been off my reading game lately, bad. I’ve gotten back into scrapbooking, which is incredibly time consuming, and am working on getting back into my running game. Plus I’ve tried to get into like four books, and I just couldn’t. Hoping this sweet link up helps get me out of my rut.
I Miss You When I Blink – Mary Laura Philpott // I really loved this book. I initially picked it because I loved the cover, but ended up really liking her. Some of her life stories rang true in my own life (being trapped in your own mind, being an extreme people pleaser, needing a change every few months), and it read like conversation with a best friend. Highly recommend this book.
She Was the Quiet One – Michele Campbell // Oh the suspense of this book! I am really digging Campbell lately. She keeps me on my toes! This one is about twins where one ends up getting murdered, and who did it?! So good if mystery/thrillers are your jam.
Columbine – Dave Cullen // This book is frightening. I had to stop reading it at night, because it was giving me nightmares. It is so crazy to think that there were so many warning signs to what was going to happen, and it happened anyway. I just can’t get past these kids being in school and being so scared. There are also so many other “side stories” that I knew nothing about – especially with the survivors. A good read, but just couldn’t do it right before bed.
Give Me Your Hand – Megan Abbott // This book started out a little slow for me, but got super intense pretty quick. Quick thriller/mystery read that passed the time just fine.
The Water Cure – Sophie Mackintosh // A dystopian novel that I’m still not sure of what happened or why. It was an interesting read, but not quite sure of what was happening and why. Girls on an island cut-off from the world and made to believe men and the outside world are evil and will make them sick. Short read, but not sure I’d say it’s a must-read.
Bring Me Back – B.A. Paris // I’ve wanted to read this since Nadine told me it was coming out since she saw it on Netgalley. And this didn’t disappoint. It was so good – so twisty. I didn’t see the ending coming at all. Good little short read if mystery/thrillers are your thing.
