20 yo, az, I love fall🍂 & christmas & space🪐 & taylor swift & maisie peters & elephants. I’m very easy going & also very lost as to what I want to do with my life. Love thrillers & mysteries!
I don’t usually read comedy books & for that reason it took me a while to get through, but most people could probably breeze through this quickly. It was a nice, light read with really deep and meaningful moments weaved throughout. It touches on important topics in a light hearted & humorous way; topics like suicide and the hardships of being an adult; with an overall theme of “We’re all human & just trying our best, so let’s help each other.” Lots of fun twists/ surprise connections as well!
Books | Fredrik Backman
Such a suspenseful read; it captured and held my attention from the first page. Fastest I’ve ever read a book! There was always something brewing & the author did a great job keeping the “bad guy” a mystery, while planting seeds of suspicion in every passenger, so you’re constantly debating “whodunnit” until the end!
Five Total Strangers
Books | Natalie D. Richards
This was such a surprise! It leads you to believe it’s a romance/lovetriangle & then it’s not at all—it reveals the intense, passionate, and powerful platonic love of best friends. It had me teary eyed & touched. I love the encouragement of spontaneity in life & living for the moment & the emphasis on the importance of our chosen family. I was not expecting it to be so meaningful or end in that manner. It was a lonely but hopeful conclusion that forces you to consider life & time.#grief#change#friendship
In Five Years
Books | Rebecca Serle
I loved mystery and thriller books when I was younger & I watch a lot of that genre in movies/tv shows. It has been a while since I’d read a thriller/mystery novel, so I really enjoyed getting back into it with this book. I love Ruth Wares writing style so much & she truly had me on the edge of my seat. The beginning progresses a bit slow, but I enjoyed having that time to build the setting & establish the characters in my mind. The ending blew my mind & I had such a book hangover afterwards lol
One by One

Read this for my Positive Psychology class this past semester! I learned a lot & love how applicable it is to how we live our lives. Meditation, mindfulness, gratitude, positivity, etc. have been total game changers in my everyday life and overall well-being.

I devoured these books in elementary school & I’d love to read them again, along with the new book Suzanne Collins released about pres. snow. I still think about these books often & I always watch the movies when they come on tv!

This series stole my junior high heart! I remember reading the first book for a book report in 7th grade. I flew through it & then NEEDED the second book, but it hadn’t come out yet. I would read every single released snipped online that I could, until I finally got my hands on the released physical copy. Great series! I’ve been thinking about rereading this as well. (Side note: obsessed with the dresses—the blue dress is a DREAM).
The Selection Series 1-5: the Selection, the Elite, the One, the HeirAnd the Crown
Books | Kiera Cass
Read this as a summer reading book for my English class sophomore year of high school! I’m a big fan of space and sci-fi, so I remember enjoying it a lot! To be honest though, I don’t currently remember much of the story & I’d really like to reread it & continue with the series. Especially now that I’ve taken astronomy courses in college that I can compare to the novel.
