Happy Hump Day Bookworms!!! It’s been a minute since I posted one of these reading updates here on Lair Of Books. Mostly I’ve been updating Goodreads & Instagram (links at the end of post) but I’d really like to get back to doing updates here on the blog on Wednesdays or Fridays (there will be weeks I alternate days). Personally I love reading updates on the books you all are reading, loving, not so much enjoying haha! and doing these posts for me goes hand in hand with blog hopping. Also, sometimes mid-read I just need to rant or rave about my current book & what better place than here amiright? 😉

Strange Grace by Tessa Graton

I am buddy reading (currently @65%) this bone chilling book (thank the stars) with Melanie, Julie, and Candace & I’m legit hooked Bookworms! & I don’t know why cause this isn’t typically my genre…horror has always made me look like a chump. I steer clear of high key horror anything & yet I requested this cause the blurb spoke to my soul *covers eyes* yea I dunno why I do the things I do but I have ZERO regrets. The writing is A+ spooky and why didn’t I know this was LGBTQIAP+?!?! It’s giving me LIFE! I’m still reading it with the lights on but yea, look out for this one! witches, demons, demon forest, and one hell of a romance!

The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

This has so far been the summer of me reading all the contemporary my heart desires which includes ROMANCE! I’m also buddy reading this one with Melanie cause we’re reading all the books together at this point & she’s the BEST buddy read partna! LMAO! I’ve fallen behind though so today I plan on binge reading the last half. So far, I’m enjoying the read & REALLY appreciating the body positivity.  This is a interracial fake dating romance that has all the ingredients for a cute romance movie. I don’t think this will be quite the 5 star read but it is highly enjoyable, we shall see.

Check, Please!: #Hockey by Ngozi Ukazu

Oh goodness I am enjoying this webcomic turned graphic novel oh so MUCH! which is probably why I’m taking my time with it smh. I do plan on finishing Check Please tonight. This is a LGBTQIAP+ story about a guy who is in his freshman year of college & is also on the hockey team. He’d much rather be baking pies but Hockey has the potential to help with the costs of college. I am OBSESSED with the MC Bitty & will be pre-ordering a copy ASAP! this is an arc I received at Bookcon, Check, Please! will be out on 9/18/18 🙂

Josh + Hazel’s Guide To Not Dating by Christina Lauren

I recently finished & thoroughly enjoyed this one, gave it a 4 star rating over on Goodreads. My review will be up closer to publication date as per the request of the publicist. This is a friends to lovers contemporary romance, my first by this author duo and I found it to be fun & quirky. We also get a Korean MC who I imagined to be quite dreamy haha! more thoughts to come, this one hits the shelves 9/4/2018 🙂

Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart

Last week I finished Grace and Fury and gave it a solid 3.5 star rating (my spoiler free review) & think it’s a promising start to a new Duology? I only see 2 books listed in Goodreads & that seems to be the trend lately. Grace and Fury has strong feminist themes threaded all throughout the story but ultimately it really came down down to my enjoyment of one sisters arc over the other. They both started off strong but I do feel the sister I was initially in love with, had her fire put out before it started. I do however plan on reading the follow-up since the ending left me eyes wide open! this one is filled with plot twists to keep you breakin’ your neck haha!

Scream All Night by Derek Milman

This is one that I’ve actually already started & stopped reading at about the 15% mark. No real reason other than I just wasn’t in the right mood for it. The 15% I read was enjoyable and also very odd with a bit of humor. I’m actually really curious to see where this goes.

Happy reading Bookworms! Does anyone else feel like today is Thursday? cause I’ve spent the entire day saying”heeeeeeY at least tomorrow’s Friday right?!?!” SMH. In some part of the world today is Thursday! so happy Friday’s Eve 😉 its been a long week & I’d love to see what you’re reading, drop some luv in the comments below <3’s!

    1. Haha! July has been one whole month of reading our hearts desires & I’ve had so much fun! Strange Grace is such an unexpected reading experience, Gratton has one dark little soul lol. Thanks luv! I hope you enjoy the rest of your July! BTW…I got a call saying I have a box from the West Coast waiting for me & now I just want to go home *sobs* haha! ❤

  2. I am loving the sound of Strange Grace! I’ll have to check that out further. I’m reading Spellslinger by Sebastian de Castell right now (YA fantasy) and I love it. Hopefully I’ll finish soon because my TBR is out of control:-/

    1. Strange Grace is making me want to go out & p/u Queens of Innis Lear by the same author. I’ve heard good things about Spellslinger, it’s on my TBR which is also crushing me *sobs* 🙂

      Happy Reading!


  3. Not sure any of these would be for me, although I trust you to tell me if I am wrong 😘 It has definitely been a long week. Was hoping for that chat! Maybe sometime next week if it works out for you. Hope you and the family are going very well and sending you all the love!

    1. Hmmm…actually, I think Strange Grace would be right up your alley. It’s very dark but filled with creatures and a demon wood that I think you’d be interested in. There’s also a Polyamorous relationship in the midst of it all. This is very likely to be a solid 5 star read and I’ll def be looking into the authors other works. Work surprisingly has been a little lax this week…more like my manager is on vacay so that explains it. It’s more the tiny humans this week, schedules conflicted with their camp and it has had me extending my commute smh. They’re both so tired and just want it to be Saturday already lol. So that means I’ll have to find something fun to do with them this wknd. I’m not so much of a fan of Summer cause of how it complicates my already hectic life but I will find time for a chat soon 😉


      1. Oh that does sound like me!!! Can I retract my previous comment haha? I will add Strange Grace 💜 I feel you on Summer. Not a fan honestly. Although mine are older and I no longer have the commute. But with visitation, etc other facts make it more challenging here also. Hope your weekend is relaxing and the kiddos are good and happy! We will talk when you can manage it 😘


    1. Ashley I think you’d high key be interested in Strange Grace! ❤ I got a galley from Edelweiss otherwise I would've sent it your way 😉 The Wedding Date is cute, I'm hoping to finish it today *fingers crossed* Happy reading! ❤

  4. Oh I’m really curious to hear your thoughts on Scream All Night – I read that one a little while ago and it was a fun read overall! 🙂
    Happy reading, Lily! 🙂


  5. I have Josh and Hazel in my TBR.

    I am glad that you enjoyed The Wedding Date that was a fun steamy book. I am looking forward to The Proposal this fall.

    I own Grace and Fury arc which I may be inspired to pick up in the next few weeks to read.

    I am currently reading Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West. It’s just an adorable contemporary. I am hoping to finish it today and get started with a few arcs that are in my queue.


  6. Look at you reading all that contemporary! Good for you for enjoying your summer 🙂

    I NEVER read horror… In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that could be considered a horror book. I’m too big of a wuss lol BUT your description of Strange Grace has piqued my interest… Horror WITH romance?! Interesting !
