Books On My Summer 2020 TBR

If I read only one of these I’ll be thrilled (I failed MISERABLY with my list I made last summer), haha.

I’m super pumped about this book…it’s arriving on my doorstep today (Happy Publishing Day)!!!!

This sounds like it could be the thriller of the summer!!!

I have The Summer I Turned Pretty and It’s Not Summer Without You sitting on my shelf right now…I won’t start this trilogy until I get We’ll Always Have Summer…learned my lesson after I started her To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy, haha.

I am currently in line at my local library for this one…I’m number 16 in line with 5 books out for lend. I know it’s going to be a little slower, any time a book is returned it has to sit for 3 days before they touch it. Fingers crossed the line still moves quickly!

I have a stack of Elin Hilderbrand books I’d like to get through this summer too: Beautiful Day, Here’s To Us, Castaways, Barefoot, The Island, and The Identicals. They’re stacked up right next to me, but I have a tendency of grabbing other books and telling myself I’ll read this one next…and then I never do, haha. It’s time for change this summer, I’ll read all of these darn it!

What’s on your summer TBR list????

Reasons Why I Love Psychological Thrillers

The prompt was, “reasons why I love…” and I chose psychological thrillers because that is my favorite genre to read from! Here I go…

  1. They get my heart racing
  2. I love the twists and turns
  3. I love guessing to see if I can figure the book out
  4. I love coming up with crazy guesses and then think I should write a book with my outlandish plot twist (haha)
  5. Variety (it’s not always about a relationship or a happy ever after)

I only came up with 5 reasons this week, but I love my thrillers!!

What is your favorite genre to read? Why is it your favorite??

  2. Hummus & Pita Chips
  3. Chips & Dips (oh yes, I am a dip queen)
  4. Book Raffle Door Prize
  5. Book Exchange (bring a book for an exchange)
  6. Wine (I feel like bookworms enjoy wine)

  10. Soft music in the background

I got myself excited…I don’t have very many bookish friends, so this party will never happen, but I could see myself scouring thrift stores and the used book store near me for some goodies!!!

What would you have at a book themed party??

The Last Ten Books That Gave Me A Book Hangover

Let me just tell you that books started JUMPING at me with this prompt!!! Ready? Here we go!

Book 2 in the Paradise trilogy…I had MAJOR book hangover after the first book (FOR A YEAR) and here I am in the same boat just dying inside until October…

The plan was to read this and go see the movie…guys…I mourned over this book like I lost a loved one. I have never seen the movie and I have no plans on ever seeing the movie. This ripped my heart and soul out of my body…saddest book I have ever read. I took a break from reading for awhile after this one…man…

Another book that just made me stop in my tracks. I read this on a plane and bawled like a baby. It hit me so hard at the moment in my life. Crazy, right? I did not read the book I had planned once I finished this one mid-flight. Oh man…this is probably one of my favorite books ever. HIGHLY recommend it.

I read the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy in 3 days. No shame in my game. I need more Lara Jean in my life. I miss her SOOOO much. Yet another movie I refuse to watch because I don’t want it to ruin the pristine imagery in my head with this one!

I was obsessed with this one…and this book made me an automatic Driscoll fan. I could not stop talking or thinking about this one. I had to take a break from thrillers after this one because I knew I would just compare them to this one…

So it may not be 10, but I got to 5…it takes a lot for a book to really affect me and these certainly did…what book gave you a major hangover??
