After the Flood by Kassandra Montag: I picked this book after Jesse @ Bowties and Books gushed about it on their channel. It sounded like it was going to be an intense ride and, so far, it is definitely delivering on the intensity! I’m really enjoying the plot and the writing is engaging af. I’m excited to continue!

The Tenant by Katrine Engberg: Well, this was an alright mystery/crime novel and that’s about it *shrug* It had a great premise, but the execution left me feeling a bit meh. You can read my review here.

Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire: The fifth book in the Wayward Children series did NOT disappoint! I absolutely loved getting to see Jack and Jill again in their creepy world. You can read my review here.

American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins: This book was a pile of problems and not just because of the terrible promotion that tried to make people believe it was own voices. There is so much going on with this book that it’s taking me awhile to wrap my head around it so I can write a review. But it is an ARC, so a review is forthcoming!

Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert: UGH, I loved this! It was adorable and sexy and heartbreaking and I can’t wait to read the next Brown Sisters book! There will be a review soon.

What’s Next

Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia: I talked about this book a little bit in my Top Ten Tuesday post yesterday. I’m incredibly excited to read this! It’s also due back to the library soon, which seems to be my motivation for picking my next reads these past few months, lol.

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren: My last library romance pick and it’s the one that made me want to give adult romances a try in the first place. I’ve just heard about it (and the authors) EVERYWHERE and I want to know what’s with all the hype. Yes, I can be made to read a book simply because of hype. Also, shocker, it’s due back soon 😆


So what are you reading this week? Did you do a WWW Wednesday post? Talk to me/drop a link in the comments!

And, as always, happy reading!

The Tenant by Katrine Engberg: Yup, still reading this one. I’ll have it done by tonight but it has been a bit of slog, tbh. Which, considering it’s a murder mystery, is quite the let-down.

American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins: I’ve just started this book and have been enjoying the writing. Unfortunately, I’ve recently learned about a lot of controversy surrounding this book. Many reviewers have brought up the fact that there is bad representation of Mexico and immigrants. They’ve also brought up that there are so many own voices books out there that are being ignored while this book is getting all the press. I plan on finishing it because I did get it for free in exchange for an honest review, but I’m definitely reading it with a more critical eye.

Well Met by Jen DeLuca: Y’all, this was the cutest thing I’ve read in awhile! Which, I guess isn’t saying much since I don’t tend to read romances, but still! My curiosity about the genre has been growing lately and I finally decided to give it a go. I’m so glad I started with this one because it was delightful and fun and just the perfect amount of steamy. If this is what I’ve been missing by avoiding reading romance, then I can’t wait to dive into more!

What’s Next

Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert: Another romance I’ve been wanting to give a go. I plan on starting it once I’m done with all my ARCs! Also, it’s due back to the library soon, soooo….

Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire: I mean, it’s a miracle I didn’t devour this book as soon as I picked it up at the library. I’m really trying to focus on the ARCs, but I’m dying to finally read this one!

The Tenant by Katrine Engberg: I just started this mystery and I’m still feeling it out. One of the detectives in our case-cracking duo is annoying af, but I’m only on Chapter 4, so maybe I’ll adjust to her abrasiveness? Hopefully?

Well Met by Jen DeLuca: I’ve been randomly interested in checking out a genre I don’t often pick up, which is romance. Especially contemporary romances. A lot of Booktubers I watch were talking about this book last year and I was intrigued. It involves a Reniassaince Faire, too, so at least I knew there was going to be something I would enjoy. So far, I’m really enjoying it!

As you can see, 2020 has really kicked off with a bang! So many four star reads and my first favorite of the year! Though, let’s be honest, I knew I was going to love The Starless Sea. I would have been pretty bummed if it was anything less than at least four stars. I’m glad it lived up to my expectations!

I haven’t done a review for The Starless Sea yet, but you can find my reviews for A Heart so Fierce and Broken and Nameless Queen by clicking here.

American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins: I’m FINALLY going to pick up American Dirt! I’ve been wanting to read it since I got the ARC, but other books kept edging it out. But it’s releasing next Tuesday, I believe, so it is firmly at the top of the list!

Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren: Continuing my exploration into adult romance, I’m gonna give this one a go. Christina Lauren is one of the most talked about authors in romance and this one seemed pretty popular last year. It’s also due back to the library soon, heh.

A Heart so Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer

I’m about halfway through my e-ARC and I am loving it! Mostly because we get to see Grey’s perspective and I’m really intrigued by Lia Mara. This just came out, so I’m trying to have it done by the end of the week!

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

I’m reading this for an online book club and I am having a VERY HARD TIME sticking to the reading schedule. I love this book. I love Zachary. This is most definitely going to be a favorite of the year. But I also don’t want it to end! Uuuuuugh!

The God Game by Danny Tobey

⭐⭐⭐⭐

My first read of the year and it was intense! This is a twisted story about a game that tests your morals. If you’d like to read my full review, click here.

What’s Next

Nameless Queen by Rebecca McLaughlin

This is an e-ARC that I really want to get to since the book came out *looks at wrist* yesterday… So this is definitely up next! It’s about a girl who is Nameless (which is the lowest class in this world) who suddenly becomes queen. So you know there will be political shenanigans!

The Tenant by Katrine Engberg

Another e-ARC that is coming out next week, so I really want to dig in and read this one. It sounds dark and twisty, which is right up my alley! A woman is found murdered in her apartment and the detectives discover that her murder was written in her landlady’s unfinished mystery novel. Hijinks ensue! Or so I assume.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

I’m doing it, y’all. I’m finally finishing this freakin’ book! I’ve been steadily listening to it at work and I only have about 7 hrs left. I will have this done before 2020!

The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill

I just picked this one up tonight and it is the cutest! Ugh, I love it already.

Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey

⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was intimidated by this book, I’m not gonna lie. I love sci-fi but space operas often give me pause. This was an incredible ride, though, and I’m excited to continue the series!

What’s Next

The Deep by Rivers Solomon

I know, I know, I’ve been saying I’m going to start this for weeks. I just finished a team reading challenge, so now I have more freewill in my reading. I’m starting this tomorrow if it kills me!

Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell

I think I’ll pick this one up this weekend, as well. It looks like it’s going to be adorable.

Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey

I’ve been slowly getting through this chonky boy. I probably would have been farther along by now, but a certain book sucked all my energy and made it hard for me to pick up anything else. We’ll talk about that book next…

I’ve also just downloaded Scarlet by Marissa Meyer from my library, so I’ll be picking that up soon!

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

⭐⭐⭐

…Sigh. This book. This book was so underwhelming. I know three stars isn’t a bad rating. It’s middle of the road, it’s nothing terrible. But I was honestly expecting to be blown away by this book! It was less of a tempest and more of a light, spring breeze and that fact just sucked all my energy.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

⭐⭐⭐⭐

This, however, was a delight! I only picked this book up because I hear about it everywhere. I finally decided to see what all the hype was about. I’m happy to say that I fell for it hard! So hard, in fact, that I put a hold on the second book as soon as I was done with the first.

What’s Next

The Deep by Rivers Solomon

I meant to start this last week, I truly did, but, as I said, my book reading energy was being sapped. But I’m done with Ninth House now and I’m ready to dig into this.

Alright, time to get some more reading done before bed time. I’m coming for ya, Leviathan Wakes!

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

I’ll admit that this book started out slow, but I’m about halfway through now and it’s gotten INTENSE. And dark… I’m enjoying the thrill of it!

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

The only reason why I haven’t finished this audiobook is that I tend to listen to it at work and I was off today! But I’m almost done with it and, I have to say, I can’t wait to see how it ends!

Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey

I just picked this one up today and, so far, I’m liking it. Even though I enjoy sci-fi, space operas are very hit or miss for me, so we’ll see how this one fares.

Fireborne by Rosaria Munda

⭐⭐⭐⭐

Y’all! I finally finished one of my Netgalley ARCs!! I still need to write my review, but I’m still pretty stoked! The fact that I ended up really enjoying it makes me pretty happy, too. Full review to come!

What’s Next

The Deep by Rivers Solomon

I’m gonna keep this ARC train rolling and dive into The Deep.

(See what I did there xD)

Perhaps after I finish The Deep, I’ll give The Bone Ships another go. I have to finish it at some point in time… *sigh*

Fireborne by Rosaria Munda

So, I think I’m abandoning The Bone Ships, for now because I just… can’t with that book at the moment. I’ve decided to move on to another Netgalley book dealing with dragons and, so far, it is WAY better! I’m already hooked and I’ve just started! Hopefully this will get me out of my reading funk. And, bonus, I’ll check one more book off my Netgalley backlist.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

My library hold came in for the audiobook of Cinder. I’ve been wanting to check out this series for a long time, but it was always passed over for other books. I figured getting the audiobook from the library would be a good way to finally start reading the Lunar Chronicles. And then I’ll know if I want to continue!

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus

⭐⭐⭐⭐

I tore through this book and discovered that I am as much a fan of YA thrillers as adult ones! This kept me guessing until the very end!

What’s Next

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

This one got bumped up the list because on of my Goodreads groups chose this as the adult BOM and the group read starts December 2nd. So it’s time to dive into this dark and twisty tale! Not that I’m complaining.

I do still plan to start The Starless Sea and The Deep, but they will probably be read later in the month. And then, maybe… I’ll give The Bone Ships another shot. We shall see.

Anyways, have y’all read any of these books? What were your thoughts? Let me know in the comments.

I just started this one yesterday and I’m already almost done. So… yeah. Pretty good so far!

The Bone Ships by RJ Baker

Still working my way through this one. I started over (since I didn’t get very far when I first tried to read it) and it’s definitely interesting! I don’t know what’s stopping me from really getting into this.

Honorable mention to The Count of Monte Cristo which I promise to finish… one day…

Warrior of the Altaii by Robert Jordan

⭐⭐⭐

Finished up this manly man’s man book of manliness. Seriously, this book was dripping with testosterone and it was… a bit much. Still, a pretty solid story, especially considering it’s the first one he ever wrote.

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King

⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was incredibly creepy and twisted and I loved it. There were some bits that were a little overboard, imo, but I still think it was a great sequel.

What’s Next

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

I both reaaaaaally want to pick this up and am dreading picking it up. This is my most anticipated read for 2019! I want to savor it. And what if I hate it?! I’m skurred…

The Deep by Rivers Solomon

One of my Netgalley backlog books. Also, Daveed Diggs is involved and I am intrigued!

Fireborne by Rosaria Munda

Another of my Netgalley backlogs! I saw dragons and I needed it. I’ve heard good things about it, so I’m excited to finally get to it.

Have you read any of these? Any thoughts on which of my three upcoming books I should pick up first? Let me know in the comments!

And, as always, happy reading!
