Goodreads Mondays #18 – February 15th, 2021

This is the post where we discuss what is on our To Be Read List, and why we want to read these books. I have over 1,300 books on my To Be Read List. I have so much reading to do.

This week I would love to talk about P.S. I Love You. It’s about this young couple, who are in their 30s, plan on living with the rest of their lives together. Until her love of her life, Gerry is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Knowing that he is about to die, he decides to write Holly letters so she has something to remember him by. Shortly after he passes away, Holly is upset, and refuses to move on without Gerry. She must find a way to accept his loss, and sort of live out her life.

I watched the movie awhile ago with my mom, and I loved it a lot. I am really looking forward to reading this book.

Goodreads Mondays #16 – February 1st, 2021

I have a never ending To Be Read List, which I am trying really hard to read a lot of those books. I would love to know what some of the books you have on your To Be Read List, and why. Here is one of the books on my list.

This week I picked to talk about The Wives by Tarryn Fisher. I just got it from the library not too long ago, so I am really excited to read it.

I have heard this is a fast paced thriller. A woman discovers that her husband has two other wives, and she doesn’t anything about the other woman, but she is okay without not knowing about them, because she is so crazy in love with her husband. But she soon learns a horrifying story about her husband, a story that she hasn’t heard before.

I’m really excited to read this one. I enjoy a good thriller. Because I love all of the twists and turns that this genre has to offer.

Hey bookworms!

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it

One of the books that I actually haven’t gotten around to reading, yet is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis. I feel like I am missing out, since I have not read the series, let alone this book, or seen the movie. I have been slowly going through my books from childhood. I am getting excited for my niece to be able to read. She is almost two, so she will be able to read in a few years, give or take. I cannot wait to enjoy all of these classics with her.

Has anyone read this classic, or are there still a few people, like me who hasn’t gotten around to read this, yet? Also, I would love to know which book you would like to read soon. Leave a comment below.

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it. I would love to know what is on your To Be Read List.

I don’t know who knows this, but I have a lot of books on my To Be Read List. I wish I had enough to read all of the books in the whole world. But I am trying my best to make a big dent with my books this year.

One of the books on my To Be Read List is The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I would love to read this because it has romance, history and fantasy with the time travelling. It is about a girl named Claire who is celebrating her second honeymoon with her husband after World War II, but she suddenly becomes an “Outlander” when she is magically transported into 1743. I want to read the books, so I can watch the show on Netflix. I always prefer to read the books, before I watch the movie, or show.

What is something you wish to read soon?

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it. I would love to know what is on your To Be Read List.

One of my books on my never-ending To Be Read List is The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. I have had this book on my book shelf for a few years now, and I would love to actually read this book this year. I have seen the movie twice, and on the second time I had watched the movie, I made a vow that I would actually read the book. I have started expanding my genres a bit. I like fantasy since I loved Harry Potter, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. But one of my goals is to read more fantasy books. I cannot wait to read this book, and compare it to the movie. And then I can reward myself by watching the movie again.

What is a book that is on your To Be Read List?

I forgot to write about this yesterday, so here it is.

I have had Anne of Green Gables on my bookshelf for a few years now, and I haven’t gotten around to this classic yet. My boyfriend and I were planning to take a trip to Eastern Canada about two years ago, but we just never gotten around to take a vacation. And for those that may not know, the book takes place in Eastern Canada. I would have loved to have read it before we vacationed out there. But hopefully we will be able to do that in the upcoming years.

I heard so many great things about this book, I can’t wait to read it!

Goodreads Mondays #11 – December 28th, 2020

I cannot believe this is the last Goodreads Mondays of 2020. It is crazy how time flew by, but it also felt like it didn’t fly by. Out of 11 of these books that I have talked about, I was able to read two of these books. I have read No One’s Home, and Gone Girl.

I would love to read all of the books I have on hand, before I buy anymore, and even placing holds at the library. I told myself that it is okay that I place books on hold for a few books. But at the same I already have so many books here.

One of these books that I haven’t read yet, is The Family Upstairs. by Lisa Jewell.

It is a dark thriller about how on Libby’s 25th birthday she received a letter, which she has been waiting all of her life for. She is finally going to find out who she is. She soon discovers the identity of her birth parents, and that she is the inheritor of their abandoned mansion, worth millions of dollars. She has no idea that other people have been waiting for this moment to happen either. Twenty-five years ago, the police were called to the mansion with reports of a crying baby, laying in her crib, where there were three dead bodies in the kitchen, next to a note. And the other four children reported to live there were gone. This house lives the darkest secrets.

One of the books that I have on my To Be Read List is Confessions on the 7:45 by Lisa Unger. It is a thriller, which are my favourite genre to read.

Eventually the train stops at their destinations. They assume that they wouldn’t see each other again.

But days later, Selena’s nanny goes missing, and she now becomes a part of the disappearance of her nanny. This results in her marriage problems arising. So, who exactly is this Martha person?
