So sorry for the lack of posting… I personally need to manage my time well because adulting gets way too much.

I had so many posts to write but I became lazy and procrastinated, I also read some amazing books and I have a lot of future reviews, so watch out for that.

November hasn’t been a very loved month if you have been on social media so I am here to bring you some of the books I have been collecting and I’m so ecstatic about them. I took some amateur picture to sort add to the excitement which I am  hoping are okay. Some of these books I have read and others well I am so pumped to devour them… Literally, just stand & gaze at my shelf salivating

P.S. Sorry for the lack of proper description of what the book is about, I am very bad at summarizing a book that I haven’t read. so I just put a little bit of a synopsis to feel the tone of the book 🙂

  1. Mystic River by Dennis Lehane 

Something terrible happened 25 years ago between a group of friends and it has come back to haunt them

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Synopsis

Genre: Mystery,Crime, Thriller, Suspense

I have read 2 of Lehane’s work and been very impressed with the way he constructs his mystery and playful but interesting, to say the least, so I want to read more of him and I have heard that this one is one of his best works. If it is anything like Shutter Island (Review Here)  I am here for it.

2. Skeleton Crew by Stephen King (So Excited)

King pokes fun at his penchant for “literary elephantiasis,” makes scatological jokes about his muse, confesses how much money he makes (gross and net), and tells a story about getting arrested one time when he was “suffused with the sort of towering, righteous rage that only drunk undergraduates can feel.” He winds up with an invitation to a scary voyage: “Grab onto my arm now. Hold tight. We are going into a number of dark places, but I think I know the way.”

Synopsis

Genre: Horror, Short Stories, Fantasy, Thriller

Can you feel the excitement!!! Every time I get a King book I just want to drop everything and get lost in it, I love his writing and this is a special kind of book because I rarely read short stories this will be a totally new experience for me but I trust King. If you have any short story collection recommendation please tell me.

5.  The Fireman by Joe Hill ( Won at a giveaway)

No one knows exactly when it began or where it originated. A terrifying new plague is spreading like wildfire across the country, striking cities one by one: Boston, Detroit, Seattle. The doctors call it Draco Incendia Trichophyton. To everyone else, it’s Dragonscale, a highly contagious, deadly spore that marks its hosts with beautiful black and gold marks across their bodies—before causing them to burst into flames. Millions are infected; blazes erupt everywhere. There is no antidote. No one is safe.

Synopsis

Genre: Post-Apocalyptic, Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Thriller

I had waited for this book for 2 months after I found out I had won it at a youtube giveaway. It was anticipated read for me but I have yet to read it. I am eagerly waiting to have the time for this 700-page powerhouse plus this will be my second Joe Hill and I can’t wait to read it. Some reviewers have described it as similar to King’s The Stand and I am so ready for that.

6. The Marriage Plot by Jeffery Eugenides

Leonard Bankhead – charismatic loner and college Darwinist – suddenly turns up in a seminar, and soon Madeleine finds herself in a highly charged erotic and intellectual relationship with him. At the same time, her old friend Mitchell Grammaticus – who’s been reading Christian mysticism and generally acting strange – resurfaces, obsessed with the idea that Madeleine is destined to be his mate.

Honestly, since Middlesex by him I have fallen in love with the author. I won all of his three books now I can devour them when the mood strikes. If you haven’t read any of his work I would highly recommend Middlesex (Book Review HERE)

7.  Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah

Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard: the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist.

This will be my first Hannah book but she is more known for her other book The Nightingale. So many people rave about how beautiful her writing style is and I am expecting this to be absolutely breathtaking  and I can’t wait to read it.

8. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield (Book Review HERE)

Biographer Margaret Lea returns one night to her apartment above her father’s antiquarian bookshop. On her steps, she finds a letter. It is a hand-written request from one of Britain’s most prolific and well-loved novelists. Vida Winter, gravely ill, wants to recount her life story before it is too late, and she wants Margaret to be the one to capture her history. The request takes Margaret by surprise — she doesn’t know the author, nor has she read any of Miss Winter’s dozens of novels.
