Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR

Top Ten Tuesday blog header 9-19-17

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is a very easy one for me to come up with ten books for: books on my fall TBR. As my followers are probably well aware, I always set pretty ambitious TBRs so there are plenty of books that I could include on this list and it was pretty hard for me to narrow it down. But anyway, I did my best and came up with 10 books that I’m hoping to read this fall!

ARC Review: The Lost Causes by Alyssa Embree Schwartz and Jessica Etting Koosed

the lost causes by alyssa embree schwartz and jessica koosed etting book review blog header

Published: September 5th, 2017 by Kids Can Press | Series: N/A | Length: 344 pages | Genre: YA paranormal/fantasy, mystery | Source: Received from the publisher via NetGalley | Content Warning: suicide, drug use, murder, abuse

Amazon | Book Depository | B&N | Goodreads

Summary from Goodreads:

They’re the kids that no one knows — or no one wants to know. The rich depressive, the OCD chick, the hypochondriac, the drug abuser, the athlete with anger management issues. All chosen for intensive group therapy because they’re out of other options. They’re lost causes, the therapist tells them. She promises this support group will help them heal. 

There’s only one problem. She’s not a therapist. And that water she offers? It contains a dangerous serum that gives each of the kids a psychic power. 

Suddenly, they can think clearly, speak to ghosts, see the past, even move objects with their mind. Their earlier problems have vanished, but their new freedom comes with a price. 
Sabrina, Gabby, Z, Justin and Andrew are to help the FBI solve the grisly murder that has rocked their small town. Their new powers will help them uncover clues and follow leads that have eluded the authorities. Their outsider status gives them the perfect cover. 

But the same traits that make them top investigators also make them vulnerable. As they close in on the murderer, they expose a much larger conspiracy that puts them directly in harm’s way and makes them wonder who — if anyone — they can trust.

Books I Will Probably Never Read Tag

Books I Will Probably Never Read Tag

Today is Friday and while I usually post a review each Friday, I completely failed to get one ready to post today. So instead, I figured I’d post one of the few tags I have waiting to be done! I haven’t been doing a lot of tags recently because I kind of got tired of doing them. But I’ve recently been tagged for a few that I think look really fun, so that’s what I’m doing today. A big thank you to Nikki at The Night Is Dark and Full of Books for nominating me to do this!

Top Ten Books I Read Years Ago That I Want To Reread

Top Ten Tuesday blog header 9-12-17

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is a throwback freebie so we have quite a bit of room to do what we’d like this week. I decided to talk about some books that I read quite awhile ago that I’d like to reread. I’m not a big rereader because I have so many books waiting for me to read them for the first time, but there are still several books/series that I want to take another look at. Some are old favorites while others are books that I loved at the time, but have a feeling I would feel differently about now. So without further delay, here are some books that I read years ago that I’d like to reread!
