Happy Halloween!!! This week I was back to reading books off my TBR. I did read one ARC, but the rest were books I have planned to read for a long time. I read The Trouble with Love (Se, Love, & Stiletto, #4), Anti-Stepbrother, The Unbelievable,Inconceivable, Unforeseeable Truth About Ethan Wilder, and Muffin Top (The Hartigans, #2).


I also finished the AMAZING How to Walk Away.

Currently ReadIng

I’m reading another book off my physical TBR, Challenge (Harris Brothers, #1).

I’m also listening to King (King, #1). This is a book that I downloaded for free on my Kindle, but decided to listen to the audiobook from my library instead to knock it off my TBR. The narrators are really good.

Reading Next

My plan is to read Crazy Rich Asians (Crazy Rich Asians, #1).

This week was full of reading ARCs. I read The Boy I Grew Up With, Royally Yours (Royally, #4)Big Stick (Aces Hockey,#7), I Bet You (The Hook Up, #2), and The Day the Jerk Started Falling (Jerk, #2). I also read one book off my TBR, Best Laid Plans. I didn’t notice until I made this post that pretty much all of the covers feature shirtless men. I’m not sure what’s up with that. Maybe October is a month for no shirts?

Currently ReadIng

I’m reading another book off my physical TBR, Sparrow.

I also started listening to How to Walk Away.

Reading Next

As long as I don’t have any ARCs show up, I’m going to keep reading books off my Kindle. I have a couple in mind. It just depends on my mood.

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Villains

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s is Villians (favorite, best, worst, lovable, creepiest, most evil, etc.) . I am going with Favorite Villains. They kind of encompass the best, worst, lovable, creepiest, most evil all in one. Here they are!


1. Grizz
Nine Minutes Trilogy
Author: Beth Flynn

I think I must have had Stockholm syndrome just like Ginny because I somehow ended up loving Grizz even though I should have hated him.

2. Amy
Gone Girl
Author: Gillian Flynn

Amy is one of those villains you can’t help but love to hate. She’s crafty and horrible, but you just can’t hate on her genius. Or at least I can’t. Without her, this book would have been BORING.

3. President Snow
The Hunger Games Trilogy
Author: Suzanne Collins

President Snow gets a spot on this list simply because the description of the roses and blood… Just ick! He creeped me out and was utterly memorable.

4. Anthony Bear
The Iron Tiara (and Nine Minutes Trilogy)
Author: Beth Flynn

Beth Flynn knows how to write a villain. She can make you fall in love with someone who you know you should hate. Anthony Bear is another Grizz.

5. Nate DeLuca
Combative Series
Author: Jay McLean

All I can say is I love Nate DeLuca when I should be hating him.

6. Evelyn Hugo
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
Author: Taylor Jenkins Reid

This might seem like an odd choice, but in my mind Evelyn Hugo is a villain. She used methods only a villain would use to get what she wanted. I loved hating her!

7. Fig Coxbury
Bad Mommy
Tarryn Fisher

Fig might just be my favorite psycho ever.

8. Hannibal Lector
Hannibal Lector Series
Author: Thomas Harris

There is no one quite as creepy and gross as Hannibal Lector. Eating people. EWWWW!

9. Kaz
Six of Crows Duology
Author: Leigh Bardugo

Kaz is like a modern day Robin Hood. He’s guilty of some sins, but his are for the good of many. That’s why he makes my list.

10. Spontaneous Combustion
Spontaneous
Author: Aaron Starmer

I chose spontaneous combustion because it’s horrifying to think of people spontaneously combusting, yet unique.

I Can Be a Better You Cover Reveal (A New Name & Cover for My Favorite Tarryn Fisher Novel!)

New name, same Fig…

I Can Be A Better You by Tarryn Fisher

Synopsis for I Can Be A Better You:

Almost every day is a very bad day when you’re thirty, your tits are starting to sag, there are lines creeping in around your eyes, and you realize that no one would like you if they actually knew who you really were. Fig Coxbury is fed up with her life; her cheating ex-husband, the excess fat around her waist, and most of all, her loneliness.

When Fig chances upon Jolene Avery, the embodiment of everything she’s ever wanted to be, Fig befriends her out of curiosity.

Fig soon begins to emulate all aspects of Jolene’s life, because when you find someone who knows exactly who they are, you can’t help but want to be just like them.

Or in Fig’s case…become them.
