Hey peeps! I cannot believe it is Sunday already. The weekend flew by too quick! I just wanted to take a quick moment to give Christie a shout out! I haven’t had the energy, time, or desire to keep up with reading, the blog, and bookstagram and just went on a sabbatical of sort. Christie has been picking up my slack, and I am so thankful for such a supportive and understanding friend. With that being said, I am slowly getting back in the swing of things and have been looking forward to today’s meme, “Sundays in bed with..” hosted by Midnight Book Girl
Since I have been in a bit of reading rut, most of the books I’ve read so far I have been buddy reading with Christie, as it helps to push me to finish reading if I have someone to keep up with. So without further to do- I present you the books on my night stand! 🙂
Archenemies by Marissa Meyer
This week, Christie and I are buddy reading book 2 of the Renegades trilogy, Archenemies by Marissa Meyer. We both read Renegades (Book 1) and really enjoyed it, so I’m super stoked we are finally diving into this book. If you’re wondering if you should pick it up- the answer is YES! It’s villians vs superheroes- you can’t go wrong with that!!
The Renegades Trilogy continues, in this fiercely awaited second installment after the New York Times-bestselling Renegades by Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles.
Time is running out.
Together, they can save the world.
But they each other’s worst nightmare.
In Renegades, Nova and Adrian (aka Insomnia and Sketch) fought the battle of their lives against the Anarchist known as the Detonator. It was a short-lived victory.
The Anarchists still have a secret weapon, one that Nova believes will protect her. The Renegades also have a strategy for overpowering the Anarchists, but both Nova and Adrian understand that it could mean the end of Gatlon City – and the world – as they know it.
The Other People by C.J. Tudor
This book has been on my stand for a few nights. I feel like I’m going to wake up one morning (soon) and be in the mood for a thriller, so I’m waiting for that morning to hit!
A gripping new thriller about a man’s quest for the daughter no one else believes is still alive, from the acclaimed author of The Chalk Man and The Hiding Place.
Driving home one night, stuck behind a rusty old car, Gabe sees a little girl’s face appear in the rear window. She mouths one word: ‘Daddy.’ It’s his five-year-old daughter, Izzy.
He never sees her again. Three years later, Gabe spends his days and nights travelling up and down the motorway, searching for the car that took his daughter, refusing to give up hope, even though most people believe that Izzy is dead.
Fran and her daughter, Alice, also put in a lot of miles on the motorway. Not searching. But running. Trying to keep one step ahead of the people who want to hurt them. Because Fran knows the truth. She knows what really happened to Gabe’s daughter.
Then, the car that Gabe saw driving away that night is found, in a lake, with a body inside and Gabe is forced to confront events, not just from the night his daughter disappeared, but from far deeper in his past.
His search leads him to a group called The Other People.
If you have lost a loved one, The Other Peoplewant to help. Because they know what loss is like. They know what pain is like. They know what death is like.
There’s just one problem . . . they want other people to know it too.
My kindle has also been staring at me for a while, and I keep avoiding eye contact. I have what feels like a mile long list of eARCs on my Kindle I really need to get through. Hopefully I will get out of this rut soon and pick up my reading speed. Do you have a go to book, genre, or general advice when you are in a reading rut? If so, drop a comment below and let me know what you do to get out of it! As always, thank you so much for checking our blog out! We’re super excited to have you. Stay safe and happy, friends!
