I’m kind of cheating here since I meant to start this today but wasn’t feeling too well & decided to leave it for tomorrow. Well I did take a peak at the first page & knew if I flipped to the next page that I’d be saying goodbye to my beauty sleep lol. The map alone had me giggling because it’s set in NYC (my home city) & some of the places have been changed. J.P. Morgan Chase in the book is “J.P. Morgan Mansion” & there’s a “Schwab Mansion” that has me raising a brow haha! I had no idea this book is 500+ pages long until I checked in with my spreadsheet & that led to some re-arranging on what I’ll be reading for the rest of the month. I have a really good feeling about this book & i’m feeling a bit excited to read on my commute to work tomorrow. By the time this goes live, I should have already started this book 😉

I finished reading Who’s That Girl by Blaire Thornburgh this morning & will
have a review up by this Friday. I definitely feel this one ended much stronger than it’s Ok beginning. I’m still undecided on a rating but it’s looking like a 3.5-3.75 if I’m being honest. I really wanted to LOVE this book but for a book that is dialogue heavy, the first half struggled a bit. The characters however are perhaps the strongest part of this book & I have a few stand-out favorites. I’d recommend Who’s That Girl to anyone looking for more books based on friendship. Although there is somewhat of a romance in this book, the friendships play center stage & I appreciated that so much.

I also recently finished reading Every Last Lie by Mary Kubica, a Mystery/Suspense novel that made a fan out of me. I also wrote a review that you can check out here. This book had me up at all hours and very concerned for the characters. I spent a good portion of my morning looking into all of her books & trying to pick my next read. open to suggestions down in the comments <3’s


Once I’ve read The Last Magician, I will be diving right into The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy. This book gives me dark, mysterious, and atmospheric vibes. I LOVE stories that take place in towns that have a story to tell. Sterling is probably not a town I’d like to live in but I wouldn’t mind being sucked in for a few days to unravel some secrets 😉


What are you wonderful bookworms currently reading? planning to read next? any good ones? & if you’re reading any of the ones I mentioned, let me know down in the comments what your 1st impressions were <3’s!

    1. So far I am HOOKED smh, I suspect I’ll be going into hiding at home as much as I can just to read this book lol, thanks Marie. I was just telling Krysti from Ya and Wine that I have a thing for small & mysterious towns that almost come off as a character all on its own. Really looking forward to that read especially seeing the love it received, good to know you loved it 😉

      1. Haha oh, well…I’ll be eagerly waiting for your review of that one then 😀
        And small and mysterious towns are the best kind of settings! 🙂


  3. Goodness yes Ashley! that cover is a real eye catcher, I have the eGalley but I’m def picking up a physical copy soon. The Disappearances gives me the creeps, well the cover does anyways lol. I hear it’s a darker & mysterious small town read 🙂

  5. Oh I really hope you enjoy The Last Magician Lilly. I feel like I should check this book out because I’ve been seeing it everywhere and it seems like it’d be exactly the kind of book I’d love as well. I haven’t even read the blurb yet but I feel like everyone else’s hype has also infected me a little and I’m really excited. I hope you end up enjoying it. Same with The Disappearances. I’ve heard of that one, read the blurb and already added it to my to-read list. It sounds amazing doesn’t it?
    I’ll be looking forwards to seeing your reviews for these books! 😀

Hope to have reviews up soonish, happy reading <3!

      1. That’s all right. I’ve now got The Last Magician on my Kindle, so depending on your review I may try and get around to it pretty soon! 😀
        Part of me already feels like we’re in Fall, but that’s just a side effect of my job. Either way I hope you enjoy it, and thanks Lilly! 😀

Yea even as a egalley the cover still pops at you lol, If I end up LOVING it by the end, I will p/u a copy since it’s the beginning of a new series set in old & new NYC! *whoop whoop* I kind of wish I was reading The Disappearances in the Fall cuz you know how I am about my mysteries lol but excited nonetheless about that one as well.

  7. I already flailed about it on my own post, but The Last Magician is so, so good and so hard to put down. I can’t wait to see your thoughts on it!! I’ll look forward to seeing your thoughts on The Disappearances once you read it. I haven’t heard too much about it, but it looks really intriguing.

    1. OMYGOSH! I saw you post your review & made a mental note to circle back around once I’ve read & reviewed it myself but I was SOoOo tempted HAHA! I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it, so far I am so i’m hoping to still love it by its end *fingers crossed* The Disapearances has received positive feedback but def less hype. I’m just a fan of small and mysterious towns so I’m excited to get to that one 🙂

      1. Hahaha, stay strong! 😉 I can’t wait to see what you think of TLM once you’ve finished it.


  8. I’ve heard so many good things about The Disappearances! I’d love to get my hands on that one sometime soon. I’ll be looking forward to your review on it once you’ve finished it. I’m sorry Who’s That Girl wasn’t as strong as expected. The premise to it sounded so promising! I guess I’ll be reading that one with slightly lowered expectations. I’m eager to read your review on that one, too. And The Last Magician sounds like my type of book. I really hope you’re enjoying it so far!! 🙂


    1. OOo I’m Jellie! 😂 one of these days I’m going to join in on the fun that is Booktubeathon, for now I love vicariously through Booktube 👀lol. Are you going to be posting/tweeting your progress? I’ll be following 😃I have had The Imposter Queen on my shelves since last year 🙈 *for shame* will be on the lookout for your thoughts 😉
