An ultimate goal that I’m working on now is becoming a better reader. In fact, my goal for the month is to read every day, and I have been doing it! I have already DNFed a book that I just struggled getting into, finished reading a book (Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson) and I’m about halfway through reading The Twin by Natasha Preston.
I thought it would be fun to start sharing books that I’m reading and books on my TBR (to be read) shelf. Not only would it help other bookworms find new books, but it will be fun to look back on to see if I actually got around to reading them and what I thought.
This blog post will be sharing twelve books that I have my eye on with the book’s synopsis. Links will lead to the book on Amazon that the author could get a sale, however, I am not currently affiliated or given a single cent towards any purchase.
Raising My Three and Me presents… twelve books that I have my eye on.
Before I get started on the post, I just wanted to give a warm welcome to any new readers and acknowledge my supporters! Thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to read my blog post. If this is your first time here, I write about parenting, personal growth, and productivity! If this sounds interesting, or you like my blog, you should subscribe, follow, or bookmark this page for later! If you’ve been here before, thank you for returning!
Okay, time to go back to the content!
This list is in no particular order.
Please note that my opinions aren’t necessarily WHAT the book is about. It’s always best to research the books yourself to see if it strikes your interest. These are just my initial thoughts of the plots and it’s okay if they’re wrong or if they are actually horrible.
The Roughest Draft by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka
Bestselling coauthors Katrina Freeling and Nathan Van Huysen ended their partnership for reasons that were neither released to the public. However, they still owe a book for their contract.
The pair are forced to reconnect and finish writing after the awkwardness of three years of hostility between them, the two will learn that relationships take a few drafts before getting it right; a lot like writing!
I’m a sucker for any romance that includes a writer of some kind so I had to include this one in my TBR! I’m interested to figure out what happened between the two and overcoming that anger, hostility, and/or pain between them.
The Cabin by Natasha Preston
This story follows Mackenzie and her six friends go to a cabin to have a fun weekend. When they find two of their friends covered in blood, they realize there is a killer among them, but who?
This book sounds like a fun summer thriller with Friday the 13th mixed with Clue vibes. I’m sort of a sucker for cliches like this! As long as the killer is not painfully obvious.
I loved her other books so I know this will not disappoint!
These Silent Woods by Kimi Cunningham Grant
Cooper and his young daughter, Finch, have been living remotely in the Appalachian woods for the past eight years.
When Jake, who brought them food and supplies doesn’t show up, everything goes downhill. Cooper must decide whether to keep hiding from his past or finally face it.
This just sounds pretty cool and love the forestry setting in stories. I’m so intrigued with off-the-grid plus secrets? Awesome!
No Exit by Taylor Adams
While watching numerous reading videos from BookTube, multiple people were raving about No Exit by Taylor Adams. I was intrigued with the premises of the story and just had to add it to my TBR shelf!
This story follows college student Darby Thorne who is heading home to visit her dying mother but a blizzard gets in the way of safe travels. After stopping a remote rest stop, with no signal, Darby discovers there is a van parked next to her, with a little girl in an animal crate.
The problem is she has no idea which of these people are the culprits and is clueless on what to do. No Exit is a thriller of Darby not only trying to protect herself, she also is discovering how to save the girl and get out of there together.
It does sound like it could be upsetting, especially if you have any trauma, which does make me a little nervous, but I don’t mind giving this one a try! /se
The Lost by Natasha Preston
I absolutely love books written by Natasha Preston as they always have amazing imagery and I had to include two of her books on this TBR as I have finished reading two of her books (The Cellar and The Lake) and will hopefully finish reading The Twin here pretty soon.
I love her writing and I never really hear anything about her in the reading community. She writes amazing thrillers and I definitely enjoy her writing style.
The Lost is about the disappearance of multiple teens in Aurora and when a classmate of Piper and Hazel’s disappears, they are adamant about discovering what happened to them. The girls are kidnapped, taken to a building in the middle of nowhere, and have what sounds like an escape room of sorts to test their survival.
It sounds SO good and I definitely cannot wait to get around to this!
People We Meet On Vacation by Emily Henry
Best friends Poppy and Alex are complete opposites but every summer, for the past ten years, they have taken a vacation together full of memories and fun. But apparently, something happened to their friendship and they have severed ties with each other.
Poppy decides to ask Alex for one more vacation together and he agrees.
This is going to be a fantastic read and absolutely love the idea of contemporary and romance lately.
Emily Henry also has another book on my radar called Book Lovers but I decided to choose this one for the sake of this blog post.
The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood
A book that combines science and romance, this book has been coming up a lot on the BookTube, BookTok, and whatnot. Honestly, I don’t know a lot about it except that Olive Smith is in her third year of her Ph.D. and convinces her best friend that she’s dating a college professor.
It sounds like a fun scientific twist to the fake-dating trope.
Plus, I wonder if it’s worth the hype!
Love, Comment, Subscribe by Cathy Yardley
Two alums from the Nerd Herd in high school, Lily Wang and Tobin Bui are both internet personalities: he a successful gaming channel, her a beauty influencer. The two are desperate to grow accounts and collaborate. When their first video goes viral, the two heat up.
This sounds like another cutesy romance and I love a realistic story! In this day and age, it’s not uncommon for two internet stars to combine and grow a massive audience.
Confessions of an Alleged Good Girl by Joya Goffney
The daughter of a Texan small-town preacher, Monique is expected to save sex for marriage. She is lost when she discovers that she cannot physically have sex, leaving her dumped by her boyfriend.
A story that sounds like a story of discovery, coming of age, and finding their own path. As a girl, life is pretty hard, especially when your parents expect to keep you “pure” while your partner is trying to get laid.
Honestly, I’m super excited because I loved Joya Goffney’s book Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry and I hear this one is good, too!
Verity by Colleen Hoover
Verity is the story of bestselling author Verity Crawford who becomes injured and cannot finish her books in her series, leaving her husband, Jeremy Crawford, to hire struggling writer Lowen Ashleigh to finish the books for her.
While looking at notes and outlines, Lowen comes across an autobiography that Verity was working on, never to see the light of day, and finds deep confessions and admissions, including what happened to her daughter. Lowen is set to pretend that she had no idea about this autobiography until she starts developing feelings for Jeremy,
I have never read a Colleen Hoover story and of all of her books, Verity is the one that stood out to me the most. I always get nervous reading hyped books, but Verity sounds interesting so we will have to see!
Lease on Love by Falon Ballard
Lease on Love is a roommate-to-lovers trope where Sadie Green has essentially hit rock bottom. She didn’t get the promotion that she wanted (and deserved) and wanted to drink, find a new place to live, and have a one-night stand. Sadie ends up moving in with Jack, who is grieving the sudden death of his parents, who offers Sadie his spare bedroom that not only has a more affordable rent, but she is able to get off of her feet.
This book sounds like a cute read, I love reading romance books during the summer months so this book will need to be purchased!
Not The Witch You Wed by April Asher
Described as the start of a paranormal rom-com, Not The Witch You Wed by April Asher is a story of Violet Maxwell, a witch without magic, who starts fake dating her ex-boyfriend (an alpha wolf shifter) Lincoln Thorne in order to please the Supernatural Laws to find mates.
This book sounds like it will be a fun book to add to the catalog of books I have experienced reading. I have been looking at finding something paranormal and this one sounds interesting enough that I might actually enjoy it!
I hope you enjoyed this list because it was really fun to find some books to read in the future. I have enjoyed getting back into reading lately and can feel my skills and dedication to books coming back.
