On My List (5)

I love Jamie’s New to the Queue feature because it highlights new things she’s added to her different “to do/ read/ watch/ etc.” lists. This new random feature – called simply On My List – will show off the most recent books, movies, shows, podcasts, recipes, crafts, and other things to make it on my to-do list. Blog Posts & Goodreads    Those Other Women by Nicola Moriarty | This is the first of two books I added to my TBR, thanks to Hannah’s cute summer adventure TBR post. I read and LOVED another Nicola Moriarty book within the last year so it’s odd to me that I never went through her Goodreads page for more reads by her! I was excited to see this one and add it immediately to my TBR. Matchmaking For Beginners by Maddie Dawson | I loved the sound of this one from Hannah’s post too! When the main character’s marriage ends and her great aunt passes away, she inherits her Brooklyn brownstone… and her matchmaking ways. Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren | Despite her popularity in the book blogging world, I haven’t been overly interested in reading a book by this author. I know a lot of friends love her! This synopsis really appeals to me and Ginger’s Goodreads review made me add it to my TBR. It doesn’t come out until September, despite being in this section, because I wanted to call out her review as inspiration!    Dreams of Falling by Karen White | I […]

I love Jamie’s New to the Queue feature because it highlights new things she’s added to her different “to do/ read/ watch/ etc.” lists. This new random feature – called simply On My List – will show off the most recent books, movies, shows, podcasts, recipes, crafts, and other things to make it on my to-do list. Found on the Shelves of Target I don’t read a lot of adult fiction to begin with, but adult mystery/thrillers (aka really anything non-contemporary, honestly) haven’t been on my radar much. I’ve expanded into adding some on my TBR and hoooopefully I actually read them at some point. Sunburn by Laura Lippman | This book involves lying and someone dying and a lot of secrets, once two people meet one summer. Both people seem to have questionable paths and I’m curious about how the author keeps some secrets under wraps, as well as the general style of the book? The Widower’s Wife by Cate Holahan | There’s a real life story of a woman falling over the edge of cruise ship (or disappearing from it maybe?) and that story has kind of fascinated me. When I saw that was the general premise of this book, I added it to my TBR. The Party by Robyn Harding | This is one of two books on this list that remind me of Liane Moriarty. It’s a “domestic drama about a sweet sixteen birthday party that goes horribly awry, a wealthy family in San Francisco finds their picture-perfect life unraveling, their darkest secrets […]

This new random feature – called simply On My List – will show off the most recent books, movies, shows, podcasts, recipes, crafts, and other things to make it on my to-do list. Unreleased    Dating Disasters of Emma Nash by Chloe Seager | I haven’t been single in quite some time (and really never had any “dating disasters” when I was, to be honest), so I think this could be a fun one for me to experience! The Dead Enders by Erin Saldin | This blurb had me at “for fans of One of Us is Lying” so I had to add it to my TBR. I like the idea of this group of people being connected from an accident and trying to move out of a “dead end” kind of town. All that I Can Fix by Crystal Chan | This one sounds very bizarre, but I’m intrigued. A zoo of exotic animals taking over a town seems like a weird premise but I think it may just be unique and fun! Published    Dashing through the Snow by Debbie Macomber | Tis the season… for me to add a bunch of holiday books to my TBR! I haven’t read a book by Macomber but I know many people love her. This one seemed like a good Christmas story to add to the TBR. Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Charlotte Butterfield […]

This new random feature – called simply On My List – will show off the most recent books, movies, shows, podcasts, and other things to make it on my list. Unreleased    The Summer of Broken Things by Margaret Peterson Haddix | Hidden secrets? International travel? A popular girl and a not-so-popular girl coming together? Alllll of that. Give me it. I don’t think I actually read this author back when everyone else did, so we’ll see how I fare. Things a Bright Girl Can Do by Sally Nicholls | I’ve been trying to add more historical fiction to my TBR and this seems like a fun start. Rallies, marches, and early feminism are right up my alley (in terms of reading books in general but also if I were to branch more into historical fiction). Turn it Up by Jen Calonita | This cover is just so cute, I couldn’t resist. I generally liked the books I read by Jen Calonita so I hope this one is even better. I don’t care too much about music-oriented books but this girl-centered a cappella group could be fun? We’ll see! Published    Haven Point series by RaeAnne Thayne | I loved Hannah’s review round-up about this series recently and immediately added it to my TBR. I love cozy holiday stories, especially when they’re companion stories set in a small town. I seem to be addicted […]

I love Jamie’s New to the Queue feature because it highlights new things she’s added to her different “to do/ read/ watch/ etc.” lists. This new random feature – called simply On My List – will show off the most recent books, movies, shows, podcasts, and other things to make it on my list. Unreleased    Hello, Sunshine by Laura Dave | I’ve owned a copy of this author’s debut but haven’t sat down to read it yet, for whatever reason. I saw this one and requested it immediately from Netgalley, so we’ll see how I feel! I love books about celebrities and big secrets being revealed, plus this cover is so summery! Another Place by Matthew Crow | I’ve been on a mystery/thriller kick lately. I love the idea of someone returning home to a not-so-quiet-anymore small town. I don’t often read male authors in YA for a few reasons, so it’ll be interesting to see the “lost girls” premise written by one… RIP Eliza Hart by Alyssa Sheinmel | So again, the mystery thing comes into play. Add in old friends being reunited (one of them being the one who dies), plus boarding school? Totally in. I can’t wait to see what the hell happened to Eliza!  Published    Happens in the Hamptons by Holly Peterson | Any book involving the Hamptons will probably make it on my TBR. Have I even been there before? No. I just love the idea of beachy/island towns. The Forbidden Garden by Ellen Herrick | First of all, perfect cover. […]
