It rained on Halloween – that was exciting! It wasn’t much, but every bit helps for the drought I guess. This week has been a challenging one, and I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to be present on the blog this week. Books have been a good distraction though, so let’s focus on that for now.

Books in the mail:

Mailbox Monday 121

Loop by Karen Akins  – Surprise in the mail. I’ve already read this but didn’t have a hard copy. It’s a really fun time travel romance.

In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken – The final book in The Darkest Minds trilogy. I tried to capture the rainbow of colors in the book cover- it’s very pretty in person!

eBooks for review:


When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill (Liz Czukas) – A NA book about friends with benefits that want more.

Merry Christmas, Baby by Jill Shalvis – A Lucky Harbor holiday novella.

Every Last Promise by Kristen Halbrook – A witness to sexual assault decides whether to keep quiet or come forward.

99 Days by Katie Cotugno – Set in the 99 days of summer before college- a girl is tortured by a relationship gone wrong and two brothers are involved.

Invincible by Amy Reed – A girl with terminal cancer gets a second chance to live.

Library Audiobooks:

How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran, read by Louise Brealey  – A 90s era humorous coming of age.

Revolution by Deborah Wiles, read by Stacey Aswad, Francois Battiste, J. D. Jackson, Robin Miles – This is the second book in the Sixties trilogy, and since I liked the first book Countdown a lot – Revolution is set in “Freedom Summer” 1964 Mississippi.
