It’s Monday again!!! So I’m back with more book hauls. Hahahaha! I know my TBR pile for July keeps on growing. I now know for sure I won’t be able to read all of these books this month.
Anyway, I was thinking of reviewing another book, but my books from my subscription box “Book of the Month” arrived this weekend. So I can’t resist taking photos of these books and blogging about it. By the way, I live in Vegas so I decided to take bookish photos of my books with the famous LV sign. Why not? Right?
So here it is…
Laine Moriarty, the genius behind the best selling book “Big Little Lies“, absolutely loves this book. This is a love story and I was having second thoughts of picking another love story this month, because I chose a love story last month and I did not like it that much. But if an author like Ms. Moriarty recommends it, I just can’t resist. So here’s the synopsis.
Seven perfect days. Then he disappeared. A love story with a secret at its heart.
When Sarah meets Eddie, they connect instantly and fall in love. To Sarah, it seems as though her life has finally begun. And it’s mutual: It’s as though Eddie has been waiting for her, too. Sarah has never been so certain of anything. So when Eddie leaves for a long-booked vacation and promises to call from the airport, she has no cause to doubt him. But he doesn’t call.
Sarah’s friends tell her to forget about him, but she can’t. She knows something’s happened–there must be an explanation.
Minutes, days, weeks go by as Sarah becomes increasingly worried. But then she discovers she’s right. There is a reason for Eddie’s disappearance, and it’s the one thing they didn’t share with each other: the truth.
Ohhh…sound so enticing, right? And this got good ratings in Goodreads so I can’t wait to read this book (whenever that would be).
Since, I just can’t get one book. I also decided to pick this book. A lot of people said that if you love “Game of Thrones” you need to read this one. I have not read Game of Thrones but I’m about to read it this week with a bunch of my friends from my book group. And so I added this book to my growing TBR pile. This book’s official release is July 10 and one of the perks in having a book subscription with BOTM is the fact that you get to have books like this days in advance. Here’s the synopsis of this book:
Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders… but her father isn’t a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife’s dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty–until Miryem steps in. Hardening her heart against her fellow villagers’ pleas, she sets out to collect what is owed–and finds herself more than up to the task. When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold.
But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it’s worth–especially when her fate becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand.
And that’s all for this week, my dear readers. Please like, comment, and follow this blog for more book updates. Have a great week, everyone.
