This would be 2020 for everyone. 😂

Little Disasters BY Sarah Vaughan- Book Review

This is the first book I’ve read by @svaughanauthorand I absolutely loved it. It was fast paced and the characters were super easy to connect with. I also loved that this book touched on Postpartum Depression which is something that needs to be more talked about. It shared a raw perspective of Postpartum Depression and how easy it is to over look the struggles because you only choose to see what’s on the outside of someone’s daily life. The book was so captivating and the ending was a surprise that I didn’t expect. I can’t speak highly enough of this book and all the twist and turns of it. It is a must read suspense book! It will be published August 18. Thank you to @netgalley and @atriabooks for the ARC. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫.

Synopsis:
You think you know her…but look a little closer.
She is a stay-at-home mother-of-three with boundless reserves of patience, energy, and love. After being friends for a decade, this is how Liz sees Jess.
Then one moment changes everything.
Dark thoughts and carefully guarded secrets surface—and Liz is left questioning everything she thought she knew about her friend, and about herself. The truth can’t come soon enough.

Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier- Book Review

I’m late to the game on this one but definitely better late then never. This is a 5⭐ read for me! It was the perfect mystery/suspense/thrill that I wanted. The story was intriguing and the characters were both flawed and real. This book is so we’ll written, the storyline never slowed down, it was powerful and hits you hard from the beginning to the end. Bookstagram made me read this one because I was seeing it every where and I’m so glad I read it. I have been craving the rawness and darkness of a good thriller and this was it. This really is the perfect mystery thriller and it’s an absolute must read!

Synopsis: Five years ago, Geo’s first love was revealed as a terrifying serial killer.But he escaped custody and went on the run.Now, bodies have started turning up, killed in exactly the same way as before.The message is clear: he’s making his way to her, one murder at a time…

Meet the Bookstagrammer/Book Blogger

Happy Thursday! I thought I would do a quick meet the Bookstagrammer/Book Blogger because I haven’t done one in a while. My name is Anna and I love all things cats, wine, books and Harry Potter! I mainly read thrillers or mystery/suspense books but every once in a while I like a great rom com that makes me laugh out loud. I’m a newbie to Stephen King (I have no idea why I haven’t read his books before this year) and I have read the Harry Potter series at least a dozen times (they never get old to me). I love sharing my love for books and getting new recommendations for books (my tbr pile keeps on growing). I have three marvelous children, three adorable cats (all Harry Potter names) and an amazing husband who makes me a better person! If I could take vacation to somewhere I’ve never been is would be England (visit everything HP related). My motto to life is love each other because everyone deserves to be loved!

Tell me a few things about yourself! What genre books do you like? Where would you love to visit?

When life gets crazy just remember to Keep Calm and Read a Book. ❤️
I’ve been working on some more illustrations. This is a day in my life! 😂

Home Before Dark by Riley Sagers – Book Review

Riley Sager does it again! I have loved all of Riley Sager books although my favorite is Final Girls but that may be because it’s the first I read by him. I’m so excited that this book is out for everyone to read. Sagers knows how to write a fantastic novel that allows you to connect with the characters. This book has a little bit of haunting/ghost in it but don’t be fooled it’s so much deeper than that. I couldn’t put this book down and reading it in the dark was hard but I didn’t want to put it down. This book takes on a roll coaster of dark secrets and family drama. Also, the ending is so great because it’s a complete surprise (I seriously didn’t see it coming). I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫.

Synopsis: Maggie Holt is used to such questions. Twenty-five years ago, she and her parents, Ewan and Jess, moved into Baneberry Hall, a rambling Victorian estate in the Vermont woods. They spent three weeks there before fleeing in the dead of night, an ordeal Ewan later recounted in a nonfiction book called House of Horrors. His tale of ghostly happenings and encounters with malevolent spirits became a worldwide phenomenon, rivaling The Amityville Horror in popularity—and skepticism. Today, Maggie is a restorer of old homes and too young to remember any of the events mentioned in her father’s book. But she also doesn’t believe a word of it. Ghosts, after all, don’t exist. When Maggie inherits Baneberry Hall after her father’s death, she returns to renovate the place to prepare it for sale. But her homecoming is anything but warm. People from the past, chronicled in House of Horrors, lurk in the shadows. And locals aren’t thrilled that their small town has been made infamous thanks to Maggie’s father. Even more unnerving is Baneberry Hall itself—a place filled with relics from another era that hint at a history of dark deeds. As Maggie experiences strange occurrences straight out of her father’s book, she starts to believe that what he wrote was more fact than fiction.

The World of Stephen King

I don’t know why I hadn’t read a Stephen King novel before this year. Maybe it’s because I always felt intimidated by this books because he is the STEPHEN KING. I read this The Outsider (my first book by him) in early February and absolutely loved. I have know read 12 of his novels and I can’t name one that I didn’t enjoy. Once of my favorites that I read by him back in March is The Bill Hodges Trilogy. I loved Holly in The Oustider and was recommended the Mr Mercedes books because she plays a huge roll in them. I of course couldn’t just read the first one without reading all three. I loved them and I loved the characters Holly, Bill, and Jerome.

Mr. Mercedes ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Finders Keepers ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

End of Watch ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Half Way Through The Year

Let me start by apologizing that I haven’t kept up with my reading blog like I should have. As I’m sure with everyone, 2020 has felt like Stephen King novel. I have three children whom have been home with me constantly since beginning of March. Let just say that my house has felt more like Azkaban with the dementors being my three precious kids. Thankfully I still have good books and plenty of wine. Now that summer is officially here we are slowly making our way out of the house (very little and with face masks always on). I hope you all are staying safe and sound as well has your families. Since we are officially half way through the year ( I can’t believe it’s July…is that Christmas music I hear? 😂) I decided to get back into the saddle and make a point to start posting again. I have continued to read so many amazing books this year and can’t wait to share them with y’all again. 🍷Here is to a better second half of the year! 🍷
