I am giving up on this book, I made it to the 50% mark and just couldn’t convince myself to keep going. I didn’t really like the main character and just felt bored with this story. #bookclubofone #bookstagram #igreads #hclib #booksharks

Happy Pub Day to Cover Your Tracks!!! 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳 . This debut thriller from @dacoauffenorde will make you bite your nails and grip the edge of your seat from start to finish! Truly “unputdownable”! It’s out today so please grab a copy!💖💖💖 . Synopsis: Margo Fletcher, eight months pregnant, is traveling by train from Chicago to Spokane, her childhood home. While passing through an isolated portion of the Rockies in blizzard conditions, the train unexpectedly brakes. Up ahead, deadly snow from a massive avalanche plummets down the mountain. Despite the conductor’s order for the passengers to stay seated, former Army Ranger Nick Eliot insists that survival depends on moving to the back of the train. Only Margo believes him. They take refuge in the last train car, which Nick heroically uncouples in time to avoid the avalanche. The rest of the train is hurled down the mountainside and is soon lost forever in a blanket of snow. Margo and Nick, the sole survivors, are stranded in the snowstorm without food, water, or heat. Rescuers might not arrive for days. When the weather turns violent again, the pair must flee the shelter of the passenger car and run for their lives into the wilderness. They must fend off the deadly cold as well as predatory wild animals foraging for food. Eventually, Nick leads Margo to shelter in a watchtower atop a mountain. There, we learn that both Margo and Nick have secrets that have brought them together and threaten to destroy them. Cover Your Tracks is a chilling story of love and hate, the devastating power of nature, and the will to survive. . #coveryourtracks #coveryourtracksbook #dacoauffenorde #thrillerbooks #mustread #thrillernerdigans #bookishlife #happypubday #bookishcanadians #bookishmomsandbeyond #booksharks #booksandplantsofinstagram #turnerpublishing

The Split by Sharon Bolton is a thriller set on the remote Antarctic island of South Georgia. It's about a woman who lives in fear of her ex-husband and tried to escape to as far and as isolated of a place as possible. But, he learns of her whereabouts and is coming for her. The story goes back to Cambridge, England and reveals more information about Felicity and her fears. It was a pretty intense read and not at all what I was expecting. I enjoyed it and my rating is ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 📚📚📚📚📚 I'm happy that I found snowpiles for this book photo in October. How far are you willing to go to get a photo of your book that would match the mood or setting of a story? 📚📚📚📚📚 #thesplit #sharonbolton #thriller #suspense #antarctica #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #canadianbookstagram #instabooks #instareads #bookish #bookishcanadians #avidreader #ilovereading #bibliophile #bookcommunity #booksbooksbooks #bookphotography #bookphoto #bookworms #booksharks #amreading #octoberreads #fallreads #fallreading #goodreads #instagrammers

[partner] Thank you @catapult for the free copy of TINY NIGHTMARES! I was so excited for thrillers and horror this month, but I’ve been on vacation and I haven’t been super motivated to read for some reason. 😬 We’ve been catching up on some neglected Netflix shows instead. Maybe I need to read some of these short stories to get me back into it? . . . #lindseyrbtw #tinynightmares #betweenthelookingglass #catapultbooks #shortstories #bookstanailfie

Happy pub day to @dacoauffenorde and thank you for sending me a copy of your book to read and review! Cover Your Tracks was a wild ride! It starts off with an avalanche causing a train to derail, and we then follow the story of two unrelated people who managed to escape the train before the derailment. The action started right away and kept on going until the end. It was definitely hard to put down and I read it in less than 24 hours because I had to know where it was headed and how it ended. What I liked: the fast pace, the unique premise, the creep factor, and the way the book was told in multiple timelines. What I especially liked was the way the timelines were used to give the backstories of the two main characters. It allowed me to slowly put the pieces together and gain a better sense of who these two people were as individuals. However, despite knowing these details, the book still kept me guessing for quite a while. What I didn’t like: The book includes several descriptions of animal violence and mutilation and I actually had to lightly skim or completely skip over those parts. While I understand that it was part of the story, I could’ve done without the detailed descriptions. There were also a few indigenous slurs, though the author personally reached out to me to let me know that she requested to have them removed from the final copies. If you enjoy fast paced thrillers and dual timelines, this is worth checking out. However, please take heed of the content warnings if you have any specific triggers. CW: indigenous slurs (which are being removed from the final copies ), animal violence and mutilation, attempted abortion, forced adoption.

Well...it’s been a long time since I’ve done an intro-so let’s do this! 🌻 My name is Dominique, but friends call me DJ. 🌻 I’m a wife, mama to 5 with another on the way (yes, we always wanted a big family ), and a writer. 🌻 My family and I live in a tiny town outside of Charlotte, NC. Bonus fact: Our tiny town was a filming spot for The Color Purple! 🌻 I’m smack dab in the middle of writing my very first YA Fantasy, which surrounds Native American storytelling. My hope is this novel will bring even more diversity to the genre while also shining light on my state-only recognized tribe. 🌻 You see, I’m part of the Lumbee tribe. Largest tribe east of the Mississippi and about the 8th largest in the US. We were also recently discovered to possibly be ancestors of the Lost Roanoke Colony. Yet, we are only recognized federally by name. I wanna help change that. 🌻 I am finishing up my planning stage on my MS, hoping to dive into #NaNoWriMo next month. I nervous. Very nervous. 🌻 I used to be a homeschool blogger and podcast co-host for a curriculum company. I walked away due to some health issues, but decided this was the time to focus on my dream. 🌻 Now, tell me something about you? What’s something you’ve done during quarantine you thought you’d never do? #nicetomeetyou

This book was so unusual, and I was hooked from the first page. Vick Miller is a pretty simple guy, with a wife and a child, and his life is fairly happy. One day a woman in a grocery store approaches him, and before she breaks down in tears, says how much Vick reminds her of her dead husband. Fast forward a few days, and Vick is summoned to what he thinks is a meeting with investors; instead, it's Alexa, the woman from the grocery store, and she has a most unusual proposal for Vick...for a handsome fee, she wants his genetic material for artificial insemination. Her husband died before they were able to have children, and because Vick looks so much like her dead husband Francis, she can't let this opportunity pass her by. Vick sees this opportunity as a way to put some money in the bank, but he has no idea he's just made a deal with the devil. As his life slowly starts to spiral out of control and his wife grows more distant and disturbed, Vick begins to realize that there is no such thing as an easy payday. Highly recommended, and the ending was SO satisfying!

Sorrow is a very unique and difficult love story. I have been very excited to read Sorrow, since I heard Tiffanie DeBartolo was writing another book. I have read and loved all of her books and Sorrow did not disappoint. Sorrow was one of those books where I couldn’t wait to find out how it ended but also didn’t want it to end. Sorrow is filled with emotion, heartbreak, music, and art. Sorrow is one of those unique stories where I didn’t like any of the characters, but loved the story and cannot think of any way it could’ve been better. Thank you NetGalley and Woodhall Press for Sorrow. Full Review on blog.

Mexican Gothic Review! __ Gabrielle here! 👋🏻 MG was our book club pick for October and I’ll start by saying... this probably would have been a DNF for me if it wasn’t for my book club girls pushing me to finish it (ahem, @tlovertu ). __ For starters, this isn’t my type of book to begin with, so take my review with a grain of salt! I found the story to be ODD and the writing just... wasn’t good. It felt like a lot of dialogue and strange dreams and MUSHROOMS (if you know, you know ) and no movement to the story at all. Just a few chapters into the book I had to switch to audio just to get through 🙈 all in all, just not a fan... maybe there’s hope for the Hulu series to be better?? 1⭐️ for me 🤷🏻‍♀️ __ Have you read it? Thoughts!?

Today I am featuring the third cover for this book. You can look at my grid and see all three together and tell me which you prefer. Review: “She is walking through a meadow, holding tight to a hand. The hand belongs to her sister, Susanna. It has long fingers and a mole on the fourth knuckle. It does not want to be held: the fingers aren’t curled around Judith’s, but kept stiff and straight. Judith has to grip with all her might for it not to slide from her. Susanna takes great steps through the long grass of the meadow and with each one her hand jerks in Judith’s. If Judith lets go, she may sink beneath the surface of the grass. She may be lost, never to be found. It is important—crucial—for her to keep hold of this hand. She must never let go.” Dare I say this novel was magnificent! O’Farrell knows how to write time and place and the layered emotions in this novel took my breath away. Inspired by a well known historical family, Hamnet transports the reader to Stratford, England in the late 1500s. An eleven year old child takes to bed ill and later dies. The grief of this loss is the focus of this story. We meet the child’s parents and siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles and follow their paths from the time of the parents’ introduction to a few years after the death of their child. The author in her notes shares that she has tried to keep as much of the historical details as true as possible while speculating on certain specifics that were of the time. The character of Agnes is especially emotionally resonant and anchors the novel. O’Farrell’s writing is superb and I understand how this novel has won the accolades it has. #hamnet #hamnetandjudith #maggieofarrell #justread #finishedreading #🇨🇦bookenablers #bookishcanadians #bookcover #bookworm #5starread #goodreads #booksharks #bibliophile #shakespeare #novel #booksofig #booksbooksbooks

"She nocked an arrow, pulled back the string, and swung the bow so it pointed at me.⁣ ⁣She was not the first woman to do such a thing to me...though she was unquestionably the most lethal. She was also the first to sink my heart by doing it." -Sharon Lynn Fisher⁣ ⁣ What I enjoy most about the Faery Rehistory Series is how unique it is, weaving elements of Irish folklore and 1800's history in with Icelandic myths and the faery court, with a dash of alchemy and steampunk thrown in!🧚‍♀️⁣ ⁣ Here we have Koli, princess of the shadow elves, forced into alliance with Irishman Duncan O'Malley, newly-crowned King Finvara of the fairy court. Can you say enemies to lovers?😍⁣ ⁣ Koli is a warrior who definitely runs the show with her calculated ruthlessness, so I do end up feeling sorry at times for our sweet, gallant Finvara. ⁣ ⁣ The book is packed with action and intrigue, and I only wish that the book had been a bit longer so we could have lingered a little more over the complex relationship of our characters...plus I'm a sucker for the romance!😍 I can't wait to see what happens in the next book!😁⁣ ⁣ The Raven Lady released last week and is available now!👍⁣ ⁣ Thanks again to @sharonlynnfisherauthor and @blackstonepublishing for the ARC. ⁣Also, my amazing corset is by @damseldress#theravenlady #cosplay #cosplayisforeveryone #bookishcosplay #corset #damselinthisdress #elfcosplay #bookstagram #booksharks #reading #reader #bookshelves #bookshelf #shelfie #thefaeryrehistory #sharonlynnfisher #blackstonepublishing #ireadromance

#QOTD : What was the last book you finished? Did you enjoy it? Well friends, since I missed my #CurrentlyReading post yesterday, I decided to do a quick #LastNowNext post today! Just with my physical books I’m reading, so these don’t include ebooks or audiobooks. Last: #TheInstitute by Stephen King I didn’t love this one, but I also didn’t hate it, it was just kind of “mehh” for me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Now: #MySisterTheSerialKiller by Oyinkan Braithwaite I am hoping to start this one either tonight or tomorrow - I am feeling like I need a fun, quick read after the monster that was The Institute. 😅 Next: #Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier I’m so excited for this reread! And I have told myself I’m not allowed to watch the new Netflix movie until after I finish this read. And I’m excited to be chatting with so many fun #Bookstagrammers about it at the end of the month as well 😍 #TacklingTBRBuddyRead

DRIPPY WITH SYMBOLISM. ⁣ Rife with imagery, refined with minute details, and deeply embedded themes that leave you ruminating for days after - this book is oof. 5 stars. ⁣ A quick summation of the plot; A couple and a woman named Frances find themselves in a ramshackle, English mansion - once beautiful but ransacked by military men. They are all there to stay on the property and evaluate what is left. Frances finds a peephole built into floor of her bathroom floor that looks into the bathroom of Cara + Peter, the couple. Cara and Peter begin to intertwine their life with Frances’ and a summer she will never forget, begins. ⁣ While you’d think that a peephole in the bathroom floor is the center of this book - it’s not. Frances, a lonely and unloved woman, becomes entranced by Cara and Peter and they all begin to take liberties with each other and with the mansion. It’s a slow burn while you see the relationship between a stranger and a couple twist and turn and how the lines of truth and infatuation become blurred. You don’t know what the hell is going on most of the book and then the fruit drops. Ha. Get it? ⁣ THE HIGHS: - A strange sight, a weird stench, a creak - you have the feeling of impending doom the entire book - Perfectly flawed characters with fucked up interrelationships (lots of them ) - Fuller’s writing is impeccable and all-absorbing - An ending that will make it all worth it - take my word for it ⁣ THE NOTES: - It’s a slow burner (don’t let that discourage you, pls! ) - There are a few gaps in plot that left me with questions at the end of the book - A lot of internal dialogue (Frances as the narrator ) - Wish this had been a book club read because there is so much to digest!! ⁣ My recommendation: READ THIS BOOK. Thanks @michellereadsbooks for putting me on! ⁣ #justbooks #bitterorange #bookaddict #backlisttitles #bookgram #booklover #booksofig #bookrecommends #bookstagrammer #featuredbooklovers #goodreads #igreads #readersofinstagram #tampabooks #tampaspots #welovebooks #booksparks #booksharks

🗣Are you ready for some football? 🏈 Or, are you a non football fan (like me ) who shows up to the watch party to eat? ⠀ 🏈 ⠀ 𝗥𝗲𝗽𝗹𝗮𝘆:: Marlee has been a longtime football girlfriend, because her boo, Chris hasn’t put a ring on it. So, what do you do when your linebacker boyfriend of 10 years cheats on you for the 2nd time? #MoveMoveOntoTheQuarterback ⠀ At least that’s what Marlee did. ⠀ 🏈 ⠀ 𝗦𝘄𝗲𝗲𝘁𝗧𝗲𝗮 ☕️:: This was a cute, yet cheesey; light, yet overdramatic, football romance. I loved that there was a mix of diverse characters and interracial relationships. The antics between the WAGS was comical. I can totally see conceited football wives trying to shade and one-up each other. ⠀ Marlee was witty with her shady thoughts, which made me giggle quite a few times. I loved that she didn’t mind loudly cheering on her man (whichever she was with at the time ). ⠀ What I didn’t like was there was no growth in Marlee. She went from a 10 year relationship to another relationship, practically overnight. I prefer seeing a woman who is focused on leveling up, learning from failed relationships, and being mentally prepared for the next one. ⠀ Marlee seemed really needy at times, and thirsty for Gavin’s affections. It was so overwhelmingly cheesy (🙄 ) how Gavin just 𝑎𝑙𝑤𝑎𝑦𝑠 happened to be a foot away to step in and save the day, 𝑒𝑣𝑒𝑟𝑦 single time. Their romance came off as flat and forced for me, and the sex scenes could’ve been better. ⠀ Ultimately, I liked this one and it reminded me to binge watch The Game on Netflix! Touchdown 🏈 ⠀ Recommend for romanceaholics who enjoy multiple tropes & a damsel whose always in distress. 💁🏾‍♀️ ⠀ 𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝗶𝘁? 𝗟𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗱 𝗶𝘁?
