Sadie by Courtney Summers

★★★★★

Trigger warnings : mention of murder, violence, pedophilia, sexual abuse, mentions of drug abuse.

I want to thank Wednesday Books for sending me an e-ARC of this book, this hadn’t influenced my review or rating in any way.

This book broke me in so many ways. I was dying to read it, it had been one of my most anticipated releases, yet I wasn’t expecting what I’ve got. The true crime fan inside of me thrived through the entirety of this book, yet Sadie was so much more than a story about a murder. It was a tale of sisterhood, revenge, loss and grief, it was a story about a broken family, but in the end it all came down to the girls.

Books I Put On Hold

ngslumps11114.png

Hey, lovelies! Your favorite mood reader is back again with a very characteristic post. Being a mood reader basically means I spent time switching between one book to another before I find the chosen one, the one I’m in the right mood for. 

Sadly, in this frenzy, there had been books that I’ve read a few pages of and then never came back to, I might finish them in the future, I surely intend to. But so far, it hadn’t happened and these are the books I’ll talk about today.

Reading Slumps 101

readingslumps11114

Hey, everyone! I’m back with a post about the most cruel thing in the bookish world – a reading slump. I will try to explain what a reading slump is, how you can spot it (AND DESTROY IT), maybe prevent it and some tips on how to break this awful curse.

According to Urban Dictionary, a reading slump is a reader’s worst nightmare. While it’s not the most detailed definition, I would say it’s pretty accurate.

A reading slump is basically the inability to read. You can’t read books and it’s not because the book is too slow-paced or you dislike the characters and are unable to finish it, it’s just because you’re not capable to read. This time it’s not the book, it’s you. Sorry. It’s one of the most frustrating feeling in the world because if you’re a blogger or a very committed reader, then you most probably WANT/NEED to read, but you just can’t.

Book Review : In Search of Us

“The funny thing about beauty, James writes, is that in no way does its presence negate the truth of suffering, of injustice, of pain, but it does stand stalwart in its own right, as its own truth.” 

Ava Dellaira did it again for me and I might have to call her one of my favorites authors now because I thought there was no way she could make me this sad after I’ve read Love Letters to the Dead. I knew what to expect. I was coming in prepared, but somehow she still managed to break my heart. HOW? Just how?

Hey, everyone! Since I’ve started reading The Goldfinch, which is a monster of a book, that also put me in a reading slump, I don’t have many bookish updates for you. Therefore, I’m going to do a tag, I haven’t done one in a long time and this one seems great!

I want to thank LaRonda @FlyingPaperbacks for tagging me, check her blog because she’s really amazing and you shouldn’t miss her posts!

Synopsis:

Inventive and heart-racing, this fiercely feminist teen fantasy trilogy from debut author Bree Barton examines a dark kingdom in which only women can possess magic—and every woman is suspected of having it.

Mia Rose wants only one thing: revenge against the Gwyrach—feared, reviled, and magical women—who killed her mother. After years training under her father’s infamous Hunters, Mia is ready. She will scour the four kingdoms, find her mother’s murderer, and enact the Hunters’ Creed: heart for a heart, life for a life.

But when Mia is thrust into the last role she ever wanted—promised wife to the future king—she plots a daring escape. On her wedding night, Mia discovers something she never imagined: She may be a Huntress, but she’s also a Gwyrach. As the truth comes to light, Mia must untangle the secrets of her own past. Now if she wants to survive, Mia must learn to trust her heart . . . even if it kills her.

Hey, lovelies! I know that it might be a little late to post this, but my summer break started in July. I have an excuse (or so I hope) for making this post now. I’ve been in many reading slumps this year and I really hope I’ll have a better luck this summer, this list will hopefully motivate me for this task!

If you’ve known me and my blog for a while, you probably know that I’m a mood reader – that’s why this TBR is only going to be tentative. I don’t know if I’ll read anything from this list, but I really hope so! If you’ve read any of the books on this list and loved them, make sure to hype them in the comments, that way I might actually get to them!

Let’s get right into this TBR list!
