Sunday Stacks Week Ten

24in48 is in full swing and I’m having so much fun doing ALL THE READING! After being in a book slump for over a month, it’s nice to have this weekend to play catch up on my TBR. Here’s how I did on the books I planned to read last week and a look at the week ahead.

I just barely managed to finish They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera in time for this recap! I enjoyed this one, but I definitely didnโ€™t love it. The story line is really interesting and I love Mateo, but there’s something about Rufus that drives me crazy. This was kind of the deciding factor for whether or not I like Silvera (since I hated More Happy Than Not but loved History is All You Left Me) and I guess the final decision is that Iโ€™m just meh about his books.

What a major disappointment The Importance of Being Wilde at Heart by R. Zamora Linmark was! I never fully understood why the story was being told and that’s a huge issue for me. The author did include some important narratives on subjects such as gender identity, peer acceptance, and the class system, but it was all jam-packed into only a few parts instead of being themes carried throughout the book as a whole. You can read my full review of this to see the other issues I had with it.

I’m so excited to say that Color Me In by Natasha Diaz did not disappoint! Diaz’s lyrical writing was incredible and she used the most amazing imagery. I also loved every single character, but especially Nevaeh. There was so much representation and I’m excited for every single person that will be able to see themselves in this book. My full review will be coming soon, so keep an eye out for it!

It’s no secret that I absolutely loved Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, so when I saw that Sara Rees Brennan had wrote a prequel novel, Season of the Witch, I was excited! Call me crazy, but Sabrina Spellman is a character I’d switch places with. I’m a little nervous to read it, because I really hated Brennan’s novel Unspoken, but I have high hopes. I’m on the blog tour for this, so look out for my review and comparisons between the book and show in a couple of weeks!

I haven’t read anything by Brittany Cavallaro or Emily Henry yet, so I’m looking forward to giving both of them a try with Hello Girls. Something I’m a sucker for is some good family drama and it sounds like this one is going to chock of that. Plus, the cover is so striking! It just almost demands that you look at it and find out what’s going on with these two girls. This is another book I’m on the blog tour for so I’ll be bringing you a review soon!

Primarily I read young adult, with a little bit of middle grade thrown in, but oh boy do I love a good adult thriller every now and then. I’ve heard really great things about The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware and for some reason the cover is already making me nervous and anxious about what is going on. I haven’t read a thriller in a while, so hopefully this one won’t disappoint!


What was your favorite book from last week and what are you hoping to read this week? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I bought that Cabin 10 book for my mom but she deemed it too “weird” for her to try to follow, so it’s now on MY TBR. LOL

    In answer to your question, I started Those People last week and am still reading it. It’s good…I like it a lot…it’s just taking me forever because I keep letting myself get distracted. Like…now.

  2. I look forward to your reviews of everything! I have a love-hate relationship with non-YA books but Ruth Ware is an amazing writer so I hope you like The Woman in Cabin 10! I’ve been reading the Witcher series books and really enjoying them. I’m currently reading Daisy Jones & The Six and liking it so I hope it stays just as good as it is now. Thanks for sharing this post!

    1. Oh my gosh, thank you so much for saying that! It really touched my heart. It shocks me that anybody cares about what I have to say about books. It means a lot to me that you continuously read my posts and take the time to comment.

      The new Netflix series of the Witcher looks good! I knew it was a video game, but I never knew there was a book series. And so glad to hear that you like Ruth Ware! I’ve been hearing so much about Daisy Jones & the Six. I hope you love it the entire time!
