June 2020 TBR!

How’s everyone doing?

I think that’s an important question to ask right now. I hope you all are staying healthy, and fighting for what’s right! Stay strong and keep your head up.

Here’s my June TBR if you’re all interested.

I have a few books I need to continue / finish:

A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara

And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

Books I plan on reading:

Bringing Down the Duke by Evvie Dunmore

I Was Told It Would Get Easier by Abbi Waxman

Beach Read by Emily Henry

The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd

Cut to the Bone by Ellison Cooper

I’m keeping this post sweet and simple. I also think I have given up on the TBR jars for right now. I have so many that I know I want to read that I don’t want to put myself in a corner. The last couple months have been a flop when it comes to the jars.

April 2020 TBR!

I decided to pick two NetGalley books, two books I own, and two library books to read for the month of April. I’m trying to stick to my TBRs, and I hope that having this many options will help create the variety I need.

P.S.: Thank you to the publishers and NetGalley for the early digital copies that I have included.


The Big Finish by Brooke Fossey

Goodreads blurb:

In a funny, insightful, and life-affirming debut, Brooke Fossey delivers an unflinching look at growing old, living large, and loving big, as told by a wise-cracking man who didn’t see any of it coming.

He Started It by Samantha Downing

Goodreads blurb:

Beth, Portia, and Eddie Morgan haven’t all been together in years. And for very good reasons—we’ll get to those later. But when their wealthy grandfather dies and leaves a cryptic final message in his wake, the siblings and their respective partners must come together for a cross-country road trip to fulfill his final wish and—more importantly—secure their inheritance.


Network Effect (Murderbot Diaries #5) by Martha Wells

Goodreads blurb:

You know that feeling when you’re at work, and you’ve had enough of people, and then the boss walks in with yet another job that needs to be done right this second or the world will end, but all you want to do is go home and binge your favorite shows? And you’re a sentient murder machine programmed for destruction? Congratulations, you’re Murderbot.

A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara

Goodreads blurb:

When four classmates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they’re broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition.

*My plan is to just continue on with this one. I don’t think I’ll finish it this month.


You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen

Goodreads blurb:

You probably know someone like Shay Miller. You probably don’t know anyone like the Moore sisters. Shay thinks she wants their life. But what they really want is hers.

The Honey-Don’t List by Christina Lauren

Goodreads blurb:

Carey Douglas has worked for home remodeling and design gurus Melissa and Rusty Tripp for nearly a decade. A country girl at heart, Carey started in their first store at sixteen, and—more than anyone would suspect—has helped them build an empire. With a new show and a book about to launch, the Tripps are on the verge of superstardom. There’s only one problem: America’s favorite couple can’t stand each other.

Five 5-Star Reading Predictions!

I watch YouTube all the time, specifically BookTube. I see a lot of them make 5-star reading predictions and I never thought to create a blog post about my 5-star predictions! What is wrong with me? I’m picky when it comes to finding my next favorite book, and even giving it five stars sometimes doesn’t mean it’s a new all-time favorite. That means that it was a fantastic book and I would reread it in the future. If you all want to know some of my all-time favorite reads just let me know in the comments, and I will make that a future blog post. Anyway, let us move on to the predictions, shall we?

  1. House on Fire by Bonnie Kistler. The story deals with family, death, and mystery. The novel is comparable to the bestselling tradition of Jodi Picoult and Celeste Ng according to the Goodreads synopsis. I’ve never read anything by Picoult, but Celeste Ng wrote one of my favorite books of all time (spoiler alert lol). 
  2. Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. This is a novel about a band that splits and nobody knows why. I adore Taylor Jenkins Reid and her writing. She has very original ideas, and I have to read everything she has written thus far.
  3. Wool by Hugh Howey. This book has fantastic reviews on Goodreads, and when I read the synopsis, I immediately wanted to read it. It’s a post-apocalyptic novel about a community that lives in a giant silo underground because the air outside is toxic. Why would that not intrigue you?
  4. The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne. The synopsis to this book is odd, and a little bit confusing but it honestly just seems like the main character is just trying to find himself in the midst of all the chaos. 
  5. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. Again, this has excellent reviews on Goodreads. It’s about classmates that grow up and stick with each other even though they all have issues. There is trauma that they need to overcome in this novel, and I don’t think I’m ready.
