Mini-Reviews | 2 Great ARCs & 2 Spooky Amazing Stories 🌙

 🌙  Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day, it makes me SO happy to come back with another post this month, since I’ve had super busy days, so I’ll celebrate each post that I upload and give it the value it deserves, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do by writing them.❤️ Today I decided to bring you a post with 4 mini-reviews of books that I’ve read in the previous months and I haven’t had time to review before, so I thought it was fun to create a single post where I highlight them and give them the attention they deserve, but It’s also obviously a good way to catch up with them and bring you all my thoughts. 👏🏻 👏🏻
Of course, even though these reviews aren’t as extensive as my regular reviews tend to be, didn’t mean I haven’t touched on every important point, in fact the only difference is that in these reviews I go straight to the point when talking about every aspect of them, cause you know I like to ramble sometimes so I hope it really is something that helps you to know a little about these books, but also that you can get each idea and thought that I want to transmit here.
 🥰


I wanted to thank you as I always try to do, for the love and support that you continue to give me and to the blog in these moments when I can no longer be so active, that always makes me feel super happy and also gives me that encouragement to want to return to write, which you know I love to do with all my heart. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU because also the blog has officially reached 6k followers! 🥳 It’s crazy, it seems like yesterday when I just started posting and it was a disaster (LOL) but even so, I always had so much fun, this space means a lot to me for all the beautiful people I’ve met but also because it is a very special way of expression for me. 😭

Spooky Books #3 | Mystery & Thriller Books 🔍

 🔍 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful and spooky day, enjoying all your readings.❤️ Today I’m back with the third part of my series of posts where I’ll be sharing with you some lists and recommendations of spooky books so that you can add to your TBR and maybe read at some point! 😍 I’m SO excited to share the horror season with you, you know that I LOVE everything that has to do with spooky stuffs, so it’s a pleasure for me to be putting together these lists full of interesting books for you.

This time I’ve decided to bring you a list of 10 books within the mystery & thriller genre, so you can also enjoy this month, 5 of them I’ve read and loved, and the other 5 are in my TBR. 😊 I’ve decided to make this list to include in this series of posts because many of you have commented to me that you’re not very interested in horror as such, or it’s simply not the genre that resonates with you the most, and I respect that completely, so my mission is to bring a more varied list of books so that more of you can enjoy this season with me and can find something that genuinely catches your attention.❤️
In this list, I’ve focused on books that I love and other books that do seem or sound just as compelling as the books that I’ve loved, so that I can trust a little more in recommending those books that I haven’t read as well, and expand our lists! 👏🏻 This is one of my favorite genres so I’m super excited about sharing all these amazing books with you.

I hope it’s something you enjoy, thank you SO much for your support with this mini-series for October, I love you, you’re incredible, I hope you’re having an incredible spooky month 🥰 & without further ado, let’s get started! 🔍

SeriesNO

Pages: 416

PublishedSeptember 24th, 2019

By: Viking Books for Young Readers

Genre: YA – Horror – Mystery/Thriller- Paranormal (LGBT+)

In the faux-documentary style of The Blair Witch Project comes the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and the girl who is determined to find her sister–at all costs.

Once a year, the path appears in the forest and Lucy Gallows beckons. Who is brave enough to find her–and who won’t make it out of the woods?

It’s been exactly one year since Sara’s sister, Becca, disappeared, and high school life has far from settled back to normal. With her sister gone, Sara doesn’t know whether her former friends no longer like her…or are scared of her, and the days of eating alone at lunch have started to blend together. When a mysterious text message invites Sara and her estranged friends to “play the game” and find local ghost legend Lucy Gallows, Sara is sure this is the only way to find Becca–before she’s lost forever. And even though she’s hardly spoken with them for a year, Sara finds herself deep in the darkness of the forest, her friends–and their cameras–following her down the path. Together, they will have to draw on all of their strengths to survive. The road is rarely forgiving, and no one will be the same on the other side.

From the author of the New York Times bestseller Wilder Girls comes a new twisty thriller about a girl whose past has always been a mystery—until she decides to return to her mother’s hometown . . . where history has a tendency to repeat itself.

Ever since Margot was born, it’s been just her and her mother. No answers to Margot’s questions about what came before. No history to hold on to. No relative to speak of. Just the two of them, stuck in their run-down apartment, struggling to get along.

But that’s not enough for Margot. She wants family. She wants a past. And she just found the key she needs to get it: A photograph, pointing her to a town called Phalene. Pointing her home. Only, when Margot gets there, it’s not what she bargained for.

Margot’s mother left for a reason. But was it to hide her past? Or was it to protect Margot from what’s still there?

The only thing Margot knows for sure is there’s poison in their family tree, and their roots are dug so deeply into Phalene that now that she’s there, she might never escape.

Synopsis


THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER!

“Agatha Christie meets Groundhog Day . . . quite unlike anything I’ve ever read, and altogether triumphant.”—A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

Aiden Bishop knows the rules. Evelyn Hardcastle will die every day until he can identify her killer and break the cycle. But every time the day begins again, Aiden wakes up in the body of a different guest at Blackheath Manor. And some of his hosts are more helpful than others.

For fans of Claire North, and Kate Atkinson, The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is a breathlessly addictive mystery that follows one man’s race against time to find a killer, with an astonishing time-turning twist that means nothing and no one are quite what they seem….

This inventive debut twists together a thriller of such unexpected creativity it will leave readers guessing until the very last page.

Recommended in The New York Times, The Guardian, Harper’s Bazaar, Buzzfeed, Vulture, BookRiot, and more.

In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code: little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same.

In 2016, Eddie is fully grown, and thinks he’s put his past behind him. But then he gets a letter in the mail, containing a single chalk stick figure. When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank . . . until one of them turns up dead.

That’s when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago.

Double Book Review | Two Incredibles but Different Adventures | Last Girls & Come Tumbling Down

 🌿 Hi guys, I hope you’re having the most incredible day full of good readings! ❤️ Today I have a new post for you with a double book review and I’m SUPER excited to share it with you. In general, I like taking time with each book to give it its protagonism, but I thought that since I didn’t get to talk about Last Girls by Demetra Brodsky last month when I read it, and Come Tumbling Down (Wayward Children #5) by Seanan McGuire is super short, it was a good idea to put both books together and bring you my thoughts on them. 🥰  One of them is a unique adventure with a lot of suspense and unexpected twists & the other one is a familiar world that I missed SO MUCH, extraordinary and whimsical. I hope you enjoy and can find new readings to enjoy. LOVE YOU! 🌿 Read More »
