Goodreads Mondays – February 8th, 2021

Hey bookworms! This is where we post and talk about the books on our To Be Read List, and the ones we would like to read next. I would love to hear what books are on your list.

I have a lot of books on my list. This week I wanted to talk about, Lock Every Door by Riley Sager. It is a psychological thriller.

It tells the story of Julie, who just lost her boyfriend, and her job in one day. She then finds this amazing job as an apartment sitter in the most pristine building in New York City. Home of the rich and famous people. The rules of her new job is that she isn’t allowed to have any visitors over, or spend any nights out of her apartment. And it is also frown upon to talk to the other tenants in the building. But then she begins to take interest in one of the tenants…

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.

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 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.

Goodreads Mondays #9 – December 14th, 2020

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 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.

I can’t wait to read it one day, I have heard a lot of good things about this book.

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?

Goodreads Mondays #6 – November 23rd, 2020

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 your favourite genre, and what books are on your To Be Read List.

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.
