Goodreads Mondays #13 – January 11th, 2021

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.

It’s about how these two strangers, Selena and Martha end up having a conversation on the train because they are sitting next to each other. Martha talks about how she believes that her husband is having an affair. Which makes Selena confess to Martha that her husband is sleeping with the nanny. 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?

The book I picked to write about is called You Are Mine by Diana Wilkinson. It is a psychological thriller, which is my favourite genre to read. It is a story that is told from each character’s perspective, and it’s about how everyone loves each other. There’s a murder that takes place. I haven’t read an entire synopsis for this book yet, I was nervous I was going to come across spoilers for this book.

Another book on my (endless) To Be Read List, is Midnight Library by Matt Haig. It’s about somewhere in the universe there is a library that has over a million books. Some of these books show you what your life would like that, if you made a different choice at some point of your life, and shows you how different your life would be. So, if you were given this opportunity to see this library for yourself, how much better would your life be?

It is currently in the Final Round for Best Fiction. It was published on September 29th, 2020.

I saw this book on Goodreads, as a book that other liked, based on some of the thrillers I have been reading lately. I saw it and I placed a hold at my local library. I am really excited to read it soon.

It is about this family who leaves their town and past behind them to have a fresh start. They ended up buying a rumoured haunted house. They are trying to not have secrets exposed although they find that challenging when something or someone is watching their every move from inside their house.
