This week I have been mood reading. I read Filthy Forward (Cocky Hero Club), Work Song, and The Trouble with Quarterbacks based on other bloggers’ recommendations and because they were KU books. I also read an ARC of The Wedding Date Disaster. Then, I read Until December (Until Her/Him, #8) and Until November (Until, #1).


Currently Reading

I’m reading The Match (It Happened in Charleston, #1) as a buddy read with my friend Kayla from Books and Blends.

Reading Next

I should read some ARCs, but I will probably read Midnight Sun.

New-to-Me Author Summer Bingo UPDATE #2

My blogger friend Jessica over at Reading with Jessica has set up a summer bingo challenge with Jana at Artsy Reader Girl. I am going to attempt to play along this summer. I’ll update you with how I’m doing periodically.

NEW-TO-ME AUTHOR SUMMER BINGO

The Basics:

  • This event lasts from June 1st-August 31st.
  • You can only count books towards the bingo card if you have not read that author before.
  • Each book only counts for one bingo spot. You can’t use one book for multiple spots.
  • A bingo can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal.
  • Feel free to use any genre for this challenge. Multiple genres even!
  • Use the hashtag #nasbingo to share updates on social media/blog posts.

Bingo Card:

Where you can join:

*UPDATE*

Completed Bingo squares are βœ“ off. Titles are linked to my reviews.

My TBR: COMPLETED!!!

βœ“ Recommended by a friend: Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade
βœ“ Over 400 pages long: One More Step by Assorted Authors – 658 pages and I’m kind of cheating here because this is an anthology. I have read some of the authors, but many were new to me. At least 15 out of 25. It counts, right?
βœ“ Features a vacation: Vegas Love by Jillian Dodd
βœ“ First in a series: The Hook Up (Game On, #1) by Kristen Callihan
βœ“ Standalone: The First Score by Amie Knight

Extra Squares Marked Off:

βœ“ A Holiday is Celebrated: Worth the Fall (The McKinney Brothers, #1) by Claudia Conner
βœ“ Contemporary: Get a Life, Chloe Brown (The Brown Sisters, #1) by Talia Hibbert
βœ“ Summer 2020 Release: Living at the Frat House by Penny Wylder
βœ“ Hyped: The Roommate by Rosie Danan

I got a Bingo! Now, everything else is just extra.

What have I been doing this past week? Listening to Folklore ts over and over and over. Other than, that I was kind of in a reading slump. It might not look like it now, but it was a real thing. I started The Girl in the Love Song (Lost Boys, #1), but it was too angsty for my mood so I put it aside. I picked up a couple of fluffy Kendall Ryan books to get me back in the reading mood. Then, I read an ARC of The Girl Next Door and 40-Love (There’s Something About Marysburg, #2).

Currently Reading

I’m reading an ARC of Leo (Preston Brothers, #3.

I don’t even know. I am definitely mood reading these days, so we’ll see…

Today’s topic is:

FREEBIE

A while back I did a TTT post on books that helped pave the way from YA to NA. I decided that for my freebie topic today, I’m going to give you more examples with:

Ten Books to Help You Transition from YA to NA (Part 2)

1. If you liked Pushing the Limits, try This is Falling.

β‡’

What they have in common: Big on emotions and baseball. They also are first books in a great series.

2. If you liked Autoboyography, try Goodbye Paradise.

β‡’

What they have in common: LBGTQ+ romances with a religious aspect.

3. If you liked What Happened to Goodbye, try The Simple Wild.

Β β‡’

What they have in common: emotional and physical journeys to learn about their parents and the past. Oh, and cute romances.

4. If you liked P.S. I Like You, try Let’s Get Textual.

β‡’

What they have in common: both books fall in the cute romance category and anonymous communication before they figure out who the messages are coming from.

5. If you liked Alex, Approximately, try Where I Belong.

β‡’

What they have in common: summer vibes, moving, and fun romances.

6. If you liked The Heartbreakers, try Cake.

β‡’

What they have in common: Sweet rock star romances with some heavy emotions and topics.

7. If you liked Fallen Crest High, try Addicted to You.

β‡’

What they have in common: darker, edgier, and angsty. Both also have a group of friends/family that you want to know all about.

8. If you liked The Field Party, try Kick Push.

β‡’

What they have in common: there’s big emotions in both of these.Β  They have female MCs who don’t speak due to past trauma and supportive guys.

9. If you liked On the Fence, try The Friend Zone.

β‡’

What they have in common: best friends to more, sports.

10. If you liked Delicate Monsters, try Marrow.

β‡’

What they have in common: to put it plainly, they’re both super messed up. Dark and twisted — great for psychological thriller readers.

I was lucky to spend last week at the beach with my family. It was a great time. I wasn’t around the blog much, but I did get some reading in. I read ARCs of Varsity Tiebreaker (Varsity, #2), Hate the Player, and The Roommate. Also, I’m going to try to catch up with everyone by the end of the week.

Currently Reading

I’m reading The Girl in the Love Song (Lost Boys, #1). I said I was starting it last week, but never did. I wasn’t in the mood for angst. I just started it last night.

Reading Next

Mood reading is where it’s at! I have no clue what I’m going to be in the mood for next.
