Tackle Your TBR Readathon Wrap Up


Tackle Your TBR Readathon 2017


Tackle Your TBR Readathon was hosted by Wishful Endings.


Surprisingly, I was able to complete all five books from my list.  I had a bit of a slump at first, but things picked up for me.



The Hanging Girl (4 stars)

27 Hours (4 stars)

A Messy Beautiful Life (4  1/2 stars)



This Darkness Mine (5 stars)

Things I’m Seeing Without You (3  1/2 stars)

Dare Mighty Things (read the first 20% since I finished my others)


Overall, I’m pretty happy with what I read.  Maybe next time I’ll try to set a higher goal to push myself a little more.


Did you participate?  If so, how did you do?

Small Review of Things I’m Seeing Without You by Peter Bognanni (physical arc)




Summary from Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Tess Fowler has just dropped out of high school. She can barely function after learning of Jonah’s death. Jonah, the boy she’d traded banter with over texts and heartfelt e-mails.

Jonah, the first boy she’d told she loved and the first boy to say it back.

Jonah, the boy whose suicide she never saw coming.

Tess continues to write to Jonah, as a way of processing her grief and confusion. But for now she finds solace in perhaps the unlikeliest of ways: by helping her father with his new alternative funeral business, where his biggest client is . . . a prized racehorse?

As Tess’s involvement in her father’s business grows, both find comfort in the clients they serve and in each other. But love, loss, and life are so much more complicated than Tess ever thought. Especially after she receives a message that turns her life upside down.

Review of This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis (digital arc)





Summary From Goodreads:

Sasha Stone knows her place—first-chair clarinet, top of her class, and at the side of her oxford-wearing boyfriend. She’s worked her entire life to ensure that her path to Oberlin Conservatory as a star musician is perfectly paved.

But suddenly there’s a fork in the road, in the shape of Isaac Harver. Her body shifts toward him when he walks by, her skin misses his touch even though she’s never known it, and she relishes the smell of him—smoke, beer, and trouble—all the things she’s avoided to get where she is. Even worse, every time he’s near Sasha, her heart stops, literally. Why does he know her so well—too well—and she doesn’t know him at all?

Sasha discovers that her by-the-book life began by ending another’s: the twin sister she absorbed in the womb. But that doesn’t explain the gaps of missing time in her practice schedule or the memories she has of things she certainly never did with Isaac. As Sasha loses her much-cherished control, her life—and heart—become more entangled with Isaac. Armed with the knowledge that her heart might not be hers alone, Sasha must decide what she’s willing to do—and who she’s willing to hurt—to take it back.

Edgar Award–winning author Mindy McGinnis delivers a dark and gripping psychological thriller about a girl at war with herself, and what it really means to be good or bad.

Leigh Bardugo Book Signing: Wonder Woman Warbringer

I was lucky enough to get to attend another book event put on by Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, Illinois.  This time it was for Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman.




Leigh was amazing.  I absolutely loved her personality and she made everyone laugh a lot.  I should have taken notes and since I haven’t had a chance to post this until now, I’ve pretty much forgotten what I wanted to mention.  She did talk about what inspired her to write and talked a little bit about the next book she’s working on (it sounds so awesome).
