Top Five Tuesday ~ P-Q-R-S-T

Welcome to Top Five Tuesday!! Top Five Tuesday was created and is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm.

Today’s topic is: Books that start with the letters P, Q, R, S, and T.

This is actually part of a series that started the first Tuesday in July, starting from A and it will continue to the last week of July and end with Z. You can learn more about the topics and see the rest here!

Let’s get started!

P is for Prep School Confidential by Kara Taylor

I actually don’t have a favorite book that start with the letter P, so I’ve decided to substitute with a book that I want to read: Prep School Confidential. A murder mystery with rich kids set in a boarding school sounds amazing and I really want to read it!


Q is for The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black

I also don’t have anything for Q! A book that I am super excited to read is The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black! Hopefully it’ll be an awesome end to the series!


R is for The Restaurant Critic’s Wife by Elizabeth LaBan

This was a great book that centers around a young mother who is trying to juggle two kids with her husband’s secret job while trying to figure out what will happen to her career. It was fun, light, and entertaining so I hope you love it if you read it!!!


S is for SYLO by D. J. MacHale

I was going to put Six of Crows, but the point of this is to showcase our favorite books that we don’t usually talk about. SYLO was the first sci-fi book that I loved. The characters were spectacular, the plot was believable, and the cliffhanger ending made me continue and read the other two books in the series in two days!! I probably still won’t willingly pick up a sci-fi novel, but this one was amazing!


T is for Two Can Keep A Secret by Karen M. McManus

I read the second book by Karen M. McManus before One of Us Is Lying and was super wowed by it. I really liked the plot, and the characters, and also the diversity. However, that ending left a few questions unanswered and that really disappointed me. But it was overall still an awesome book!

That’s it for this Tuesday! Have you read any of the books I mentioned above? Did you enjoy them? Who are some of your favorite authors? Let’s chat in the comments below!

WWW Wednesday #25

Hello my fellow bookworms! I hope you are having a fantastic day! It is time for my weekly reading update, WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.

The Three W’s are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Let’s get started!

All covers are from Goodreads

What I Just Finished:

I finished The Bridge of Little Jeremy last night. It was a an okay story with good characters, but I thought it was a bit too long. My review should be up, hopefully, sometime later this week!

I also finished Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland and really liked it! The mystery was intense, and the conspiracy plot a lot bigger than what it originally seemed. My review should be up next Monday! (07/22)

Finally, I also finished Look For Me by Lisa Gardner. I loved the characters, the mystery kept me guessing, and the ending was neatly wrapped up. My review should be up, hopefully, by next Friday! (07/26)

What I’m Currently Reading:

I haven’t actually started reading Hell’s Corner by David Baldacci yet, but I plan on doing so later today.

I’ve gotten through the first chapter of Captive Witness and it’s hilarious because Nancy and the story are kind of old fashioned. Hopefully, I will still enjoy the mystery!

What I Plan To Read Next:

Next up, I want to read Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco. Hopefully, I’ll have finished both of my current reads first, and caught up on my reviews before I start this!!

That’s it for this Wednesday. What are you reading? Have you read Hunting Prince Dracula? What did you think? Let’s chat in the comments below! (Be sure to link to your WWW’s so that I can check them out!)

Top Five Tuesday ~ K-L-M-N-O

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve done a Top Ten Tuesday. However, this time, I’ve decided to try Top Five Tuesday! Top Five Tuesday was created and is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm.

Today’s topic is: Books that start with the letters K, L, M, N, and O.

This is actually part of a series that started the first Tuesday in July, starting from A and it will continue to the last week of July and end with Z. However, I still wanted to join in.

Let’s get started!

K is for Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland

I read this last week, and it was an amazing, edge of your seat kind of thriller! I was a bit confused by the end and would have loved it to be wrapped up more neatly, but I still enjoyed it! I felt so much for Agent Maddox and for all the trouble and pain that she’s been through in life. Also because it’s an FBI book and I absolutely love FBI or CIA or MI5/MI6 or basically any intelligence/law enforcement organization centered book!


L is for Look For Me by Lisa Gardner

I read this over the weekend and loved D.D. and Flora!! The mystery was great and I loved D.D. and Flora’s relationship. It was also interesting to read about Flora’s vigilante work and her survival group, and to know what it’s like to be a survivor. I was also glas because the book was easy to read as a standalone, and this happened to be book nine… so I’m definitely going to go back, and start from book 1!


M is for My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

This was a great mystery, with a bit of an annoying narrator, but I still really enjoyed it at the end. The POV was new and unique and I loved watching the story unfold. It’s an amazing debut novel and I’m going to be on the lookout for whatever the author publishes next!!


N is for No Exit by Taylor Adams

I’ve been recommending this book to all my friends who I think would be able to stomach the gore and the pain that is in this book. Because besides that, it’s a great story, and it’s also kind of like a short movie in book format. The plot is quick, there’s a lot of action, pain, and it is the very definition of a thriller! So if you think you can handle a good amount of gruesomeness, please please do try this out!!!


O is for One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

When I first heard about this book, I said nah, I’ll pass. Fastforward a couple of years, to when I joined GR, and everyone was talking about the author’s second book. That seemed more interesting to me, so I read it first, really liked it, and then decided to just give this one a try.

I loved it. The plot was interesting, the characters were amazing (Nick and Maeve were my favorites! Nick and Bronwyn together were so cute!!!!), the ending shocked me even though I’m pretty sure I’d read a spoiler beforehand, but I was completely blown away! It was the second mystery book that I gave 5 stars too (the first one being The Fixer) and I definitely highly recommend it!
