#Blogmas Day 5

Best Dark/Suspense/Twisted Read

Meet Hanna.

She’s the sweet-but-silent angel in the adoring eyes of her Daddy. He’s the only person who understands her, and all Hanna wants is to live happily ever after with him. But Mommy stands in her way, and she’ll try any trick she can think of to get rid of her. Ideally for good.

Meet Suzette.

She loves her daughter, really, but after years of expulsions and strained home schooling, her precarious health and sanity are weakening day by day. As Hanna’s tricks become increasingly sophisticated, and Suzette’s husband remains blind to the failing family dynamics, Suzette starts to fear that there’s something seriously wrong, and that maybe home isn’t the best place for their baby girl after all.

This book really challenged me as a mother.  I can’t even imagine a child behaving like this.  It really was a struggle for me, but I got about half way and then I just NEEDED to know where the author was going with this.  This book is horrifying and just be prepared to be freaked out by a mute seven year old.  Would LOVE to ask the author WTF?

#Blogmas Day 4

Best Rom Com

The UnhoneymoonersThis book was a super fun read.  I would recommend reading it in the summer.  Everyone at the wedding gets sick from the seafood, except for the only two people that didn’t eat seafood, the sister of the bride and brother of the groom.  These two aren’t particularly fond of each other, but they find themselves with two tickets to the honeymoon their siblings can’t make it to.  What a fun read!  If you love the hate to love trope, then you will enjoy this trope.

#Blogmas Day 1 & 2

So excited to get to participate in my first Blogmas! Sophie at Beware of the Reader has been doing this for three years, and this will be my first!  I will be posting my “bests” of 2019 based on the prompts.  I look forward to following everyone’s Blogmas and adding some books to my never ending TBR.

Best YA

By far my FAVORITE!!!!!  I can’t wait for the second book in the series “A Heart so Fierce and Broken” that is slated to be released on January 7th 2020.  This is a Beauty and the Beast retelling.  I am often very fearful of the Fantasy genre but I would encourage anyone that is not so comfortable with Fantasy to give this at try.

Soul Destroyer/Huge Book Hangover

November 9: A Novel

 

This book just killed me.  The roller coaster of emotions was overwhelming.  I read this in one sitting.  I just couldn’t stop reading and felt all kinds of emotions at once.  I remember finishing this book and not being able to pick up another one for at least a week.  Colleen Hoover has this effect on me!
