My interests have been swaying more and more towards mysteries and psychological thrillers. I blame all the amazing blogs that I follow who also share this love for mysteries; they keep adding to my TBR!
I also figure this list would be perfect for Halloween if you guys wanna creep yourselves out for those spooky vibes!
Here are the top ten mysteries that I want to get my sticky paws on ASAP!
If you follow me on Twitter (which you should!) you’ll know that One Dark Throne was out on the 19th.
My wonderful, fantastic, loving, awesome sister ordered it for me for my birthday so it was delivered to my door that day and it was just SO SATISFYING!!!!
Look at how beautiful it is!!
But I really had to contain my intense excitement as the days lead up to the release, which was like…. super hard!!! So I thought I should do some much needed public service and share how I managed to keep my sanity through the wait!
Work was insane. I don’t want to get all into it or else you’ll know exactly who I work for if you do some googling lol, but essentially the city asked the company I work for to get a building up and running for residenceny with a two week timeline. Soooo, now you know why I abandoned my blog for a week mid-September!
But, I did my best to breathe some life back into the blog especially since I reached the magical 6 month mark of blogging!
If you’re interested to know what I read this month, a recap of posts I made, and also some things that I did in real life – keep reading!
I have definitely found myself rating a book higher solely because I was surrounded by all the immense praise from book hype! I then had to do some “soul searching” and realize that I didn’t actually enjoy the book as much as everyone else.
And of course the opposite can happen – sometimes we might get so sick of book hype that we may rate a book more critically and then end up deciding the book was more fun than we originally gave it credit for.
Why is it that book hype can influence us in this way?
