One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide. Pay close attention and you might solve this. On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention. Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule. Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess. Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing. Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher. And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app. Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose? Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

Upcoming Releases: May 2017

upcoming releases may 2017
What is it with May? Seriously, take a look at this list and tell me why all the good ones release in May. Is there a secret pact I don't know off?? Okay, sure, not all the good ones, but sure as hell a whole lot of them! There are so many here I want to read. I for one still can't believe ACOWAR is actually out. Like, I'm holding it in my hands and I still can't. I'm about a hundred pages away from finishing it, I expect my review to be up tomorrow. I've also read a Netgalley-provided arc of Flame In The Mist and I strongly recommend the book to everyone. If you're interested you can read my spoiler-free review here. I'll probably read One Of Us Is Lying next, since I also got an arc-approval. And then? Who knows... There are honestly too many to chose from. Right?

April Wrap Up

wrap up april 2017
Maybe April wasn't the best month when it comes to releases, but I'm happy to say I got a lot more and better reading done this time. I mean, I GOT TO READ A CONJURING OF LIGHT. It was perfect, it was absolutely perfect. I wasn't nearly ready to say goodbye to the squad but this was a good way to do it. Lila, Kell, Rhy & Alucard, I miss you already. Thirteen Reasons Why also (finally) made the cut and I thought it was really intriguing, but as good as it was, it had nothing on the tv show. That one blew my mind. If you havent yet, you should watch it. It's not a fun ride, but it's so important I feel like it should be a mandatory watch to everyone between fifteen and thirty.
