This week was the most exciting book week I think I’ve ever had! I’ve had some serious stresses in my personal life so this happiness couldn’t have come at a better time! Let’s jump right into it – there’s a lot to tell!!
BOOKS I FINISHED THIS WEEK:
No, this isn’t a mistake – I finished THREE books this week!! I am absolutely blown away by this number! None of them were 5 star reads, but they were all very enjoyable
THE OBSESSION by Nora Roberts <—– (Full review)
It has been a long time since I’ve picked up a Nora Roberts book and I was so glad that I did. I really love her books and this one was no exception. I really enjoyed the aspect of a serial killer and how the main character coped with it.
THE UNLIKELIES by Carrie Firestone <—– (Full review)
I’ve really been lucking out with YA contemporary this year! Something quite unexpected. This one focuses on a group of unlikely friends coming together to support each other through some intense things. The friendship and the positivity of these teenagers was really wonderful!
HOLD BACK THE STARS by Katie Khan <—– (Full review)
I had been anticipating this one for what seemed like forever! It was such a different concept! The balance of perspective of past events against present day was so well done! I can’t wait to read more from this author!
I’m 90% through Claiming Addison so that review will be coming this week. I just started The Space Between the Stars by Anne Corlett last night. Apparently I’ve been on a streak with titles that have the word Star in it! I’m liking it!!

TOP 5 TUESDAY
This week I covered my Top 5 Historical Fiction – one of my absolute favourite genres!! Next weeks topic is an especially fun one – top 5 fictional boyfriends!!! So many options and none of them are real! *tear*
THE WEEK OF ARC’S!!!
It’s been quite a few months since I’ve gotten an ARC. It seems that I never time them right. Not a big deal. I’m so grateful to the publishers every time I get a copy – I almost cry (ok I’ve totally cried!) when I get them and have the chance to review one of their books. This has been such an exciting week for ARC’s! I got three in total. Two from publishers and one I had an author reach out to me and offered to send it to me. That was a first EVER and I was so excited I couldn’t sleep afterwards! So keep an eye out for reviews of these exciting reads!
So that was a quick look at my super busy and exciting week! This whole blogging adventure is such a whirlwind sometimes. A rollercoaster of ups and downs. For right now, I’m just riding a wave! Hope your week was just as amazing!
Until next time, happy reading!
