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?

Goodreads Mondays #12 – January 4th, 2021

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

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 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.

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.

This week I picked A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson. It’s about how about a murder case that has been closed for a few years now, and a student in her final year picks this as her project, she discovers that people in this town has secrets.

Goodreads Rating: 4.33 stars out of 5

Goodreads Mondays #7 – November 30th, 2020

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.

Goodreads Mondays #4 – November 9th, 2020

This post is where I write about a book that is on our To Be Read List (TBR) List, and we discuss why we want to read it.

I have a lot of books on my TBR List. I am trying to make more time to read more books, so I can cross more books off of the list.

This week I would love to read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. I have never read this book, but I have heard many great things about these books. I like to read the books before I watch the movie, so I haven’t see the movie, yet either.

One of a wealthy family member has disappeared over forty years ago, and and one of her uncles begins to seek answers on the disappearance. It covers many genres such as mystery, romance, finance, and family drama. It definitely sounds like it has something for everyone.

I cannot wait to read this book! What is one book on your TBR list? I would love to know.

Goodreads Monday #1 (10/19/2020)

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by Lauren’s Page Turners. It is fairly simple to write about. You pick one of the books on your To Be Read List and explain why you want to read it.

I would love to read Gone Girl I watched this movie with my mama several years ago, and I loved it. When the movie started, it says that it was based on the novel, with the same title, and how the author Gillian Flynn, and how she is also responsible for the screen play writing as well. So I really liked how involved she was with the movie.

It’s a mystery and thriller kind of book. Even time I have seen the movie, it makes me what to read the book. Normally I am always read the book, watch the movie. But my mom really wanted to watch this movie, so I didn’t have time to read it beforehand.

I have always been interested to compare it to the movie. It’s the perfect season to read thrillers with it being Spooktober in all. I placed a hold at my library, so I will be able to read it very shortly. I am so excited!

What is one book on your To Be Read List, that you would like to read?

Thankful Thursdays #16

Hey everyone! I cannot believe that I have been writing Thankful Thursdays for the past four months, now. It is crazy for how fast time is flying by.

Every week I spend time reflecting on what I am thankful for. Feel free to partake in the comments, if you like.

  1. Since it was our Thanksgiving weekend, my boyfriend was off on Monday, so we had an extra day to relax together. That is always fun!
  2. My boyfriend also bought me a new mop, it works a lot better than our other mop.
  3. Yesterday my boyfriend and I tried a new ice cream flavour we haven’t tried before. We tied a peach flavoured ice cream. It was so good.
  4. Having a midnight snack with my boyfriend this morning. That was a lot of fun.
  5. Using my local library to put books from To Be Read List on hold. I’m super excited to start going through all of those books.
