Love these picks!!! I think I'll be going with Girl, Serpent, Thorn.. Or My Lady Jane - one is audio and one ebook so maybe both >.<

And I'm glad I made your decision hard lol, I love having too many good options! I read Two Lives and Children and both were five star reads for me! Nightingale is on my list for this month!


message 22: by Cynthia (new)

Cynthia | 6111 comments My partner is Sophie and for her I pick:

1. The Midnight Library by Matt Haig ... I've never seen or heard of it before but the title and cover art caught my eye.

2. The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu ... because I really want to read it too.

3. The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (Hitchhiker's Guide, #2) by Douglas Adams ... because it is the shortest on your list and continues a series.

Happy reading!

Girl, Serpent, Thorn is coming in my BOTM box this month but I’m not sure when so I didn’t have it on my list. My Lady Jane had me cracking up though literally laughing out loud.

I think I’m going to read Two Lives because I’ve been feeling contemporary...I’m excited!

Sarah Nichole | 141 comments I just completed The Two Lives of Lydia Bird and oh my goodness that was an emotional roller coaster. I rated it 5 stars and absolutely adored it!

The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver


message 32: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 229 comments I finished The Ship by Antonia Honeywell today. I'm glad I got it off my TBR shelf but yeah 2 stars. Just long, and sad, and didn't really like or connect with any of the characters.

Justice for Sara by Erica Spindler

Book - Justice for Sara
Author - Erica Spindler
Date - 9/2/20
Rating - 4 Stars

Review - Funny story..I listened to this on audio. The narrator is Tavia Gilbert. She is the same one who narrates The Night Huntress Books. What was funny is that the character's name in Justice for Sara was Kat, the same name in The Night Huntress Books. In the beginning I was a little confused everytime she said Kat. I was waiting for something supernatural to happen and when it didn't I got confused for a minute. I'm like, crap, wrong book. Anyways, it was an interesting mystery thriller. The twist was easily guessable, but the story was well written.
