Goodreads Mondays #16 – February 1st, 2021

I have a never ending To Be Read List, which I am trying really hard to read a lot of those books. I would love to know what some of the books you have on your To Be Read List, and why. Here is one of the books on my list.

This week I picked to talk about The Wives by Tarryn Fisher. I just got it from the library not too long ago, so I am really excited to read it.

I have heard this is a fast paced thriller. A woman discovers that her husband has two other wives, and she doesn’t anything about the other woman, but she is okay without not knowing about them, because she is so crazy in love with her husband. But she soon learns a horrifying story about her husband, a story that she hasn’t heard before.

I’m really excited to read this one. I enjoy a good thriller. Because I love all of the twists and turns that this genre has to offer.

WWW Wednesdays – January 27th, 2021

Let’s talk about books! This is a post where I discuss all the books that I have been reading, by answering the following questions…

  1. What have I finished reading?
  2. What am I currently reading?
  3. What will I read next?

Because my goal is to read 100 books by the end of the year. I fell a bit behind with my reading, so I ended up reading a few shorter books, so I can stay on par with my schedule. That is why I have read these two books the other day.

  1. What have I finished reading?

This book is written by Admiral William H. McRaven (U.S. Navy Retired) about how you can do small things that can change the world. He wrote a speech for a graduating class about how we area capable of changing the world. It is a really inspiring book.

My rating: 4 stars out of 5

This book talks about how we have the power to either make today work, or don’t work. How we spend our time will determine whether or not we will be successful, or not. The power lies in how we can spend our days. Do we spend time working on our goals, or do we scroll through Facebook, asking ourselves, why we don’t have time to do the things we want to do. It is another inspiring book, too.

My rating: 4 stars out of 5

2. What am I currently reading?

I am going to finish this book by Wednesday, so I can write about it. So far, it is amazing! I feel bad that I had to put it down to help my family with things.

3. What will I read next?

Hey bookworms!

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it

One of the books that I actually haven’t gotten around to reading, yet is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis. I feel like I am missing out, since I have not read the series, let alone this book, or seen the movie. I have been slowly going through my books from childhood. I am getting excited for my niece to be able to read. She is almost two, so she will be able to read in a few years, give or take. I cannot wait to enjoy all of these classics with her.

Has anyone read this classic, or are there still a few people, like me who hasn’t gotten around to read this, yet? Also, I would love to know which book you would like to read soon. Leave a comment below.

Goodreads Mondays #13 – January 11th, 2021

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it. I would love to know what is on your To Be Read List.

One of my books on my never-ending To Be Read List is The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. I have had this book on my book shelf for a few years now, and I would love to actually read this book this year. I have seen the movie twice, and on the second time I had watched the movie, I made a vow that I would actually read the book. I have started expanding my genres a bit. I like fantasy since I loved Harry Potter, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. But one of my goals is to read more fantasy books. I cannot wait to read this book, and compare it to the movie. And then I can reward myself by watching the movie again.

What is a book that is on your To Be Read List?

I forgot to write about this yesterday, so here it is.

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it. I would love to know what is on your To Be Read List.

I have had Anne of Green Gables on my bookshelf for a few years now, and I haven’t gotten around to this classic yet. My boyfriend and I were planning to take a trip to Eastern Canada about two years ago, but we just never gotten around to take a vacation. And for those that may not know, the book takes place in Eastern Canada. I would have loved to have read it before we vacationed out there. But hopefully we will be able to do that in the upcoming years.

I heard so many great things about this book, I can’t wait to read it!

Goodreads Mondays #11 – December 28th, 2020

I cannot believe this is the last Goodreads Mondays of 2020. It is crazy how time flew by, but it also felt like it didn’t fly by. Out of 11 of these books that I have talked about, I was able to read two of these books. I have read No One’s Home, and Gone Girl.

This is a post about us discussing one of the books in our To Be Read List and talking about why we would like to read it. I would love to know what is on your To Be Read List.

I would love to read all of the books I have on hand, before I buy anymore, and even placing holds at the library. I told myself that it is okay that I place books on hold for a few books. But at the same I already have so many books here.

One of these books that I haven’t read yet, is The Family Upstairs. by Lisa Jewell.

It is a dark thriller about how on Libby’s 25th birthday she received a letter, which she has been waiting all of her life for. She is finally going to find out who she is. She soon discovers the identity of her birth parents, and that she is the inheritor of their abandoned mansion, worth millions of dollars. She has no idea that other people have been waiting for this moment to happen either. Twenty-five years ago, the police were called to the mansion with reports of a crying baby, laying in her crib, where there were three dead bodies in the kitchen, next to a note. And the other four children reported to live there were gone. This house lives the darkest secrets.

Another book on my (endless) To Be Read List, is Midnight Library by Matt Haig. It’s about somewhere in the universe there is a library that has over a million books. Some of these books show you what your life would like that, if you made a different choice at some point of your life, and shows you how different your life would be. So, if you were given this opportunity to see this library for yourself, how much better would your life be?

It is currently in the Final Round for Best Fiction. It was published on September 29th, 2020.

Goodreads Mondays #4 – November 9th, 2020

This post is where I write about a book that is on our To Be Read List (TBR) List, and we discuss why we want to read it.

I have a lot of books on my TBR List. I am trying to make more time to read more books, so I can cross more books off of the list.

This week I would love to read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. I have never read this book, but I have heard many great things about these books. I like to read the books before I watch the movie, so I haven’t see the movie, yet either.

One of a wealthy family member has disappeared over forty years ago, and and one of her uncles begins to seek answers on the disappearance. It covers many genres such as mystery, romance, finance, and family drama. It definitely sounds like it has something for everyone.

I cannot wait to read this book! What is one book on your TBR list? I would love to know.
