My friend, Melissa Frey, just revealed the cover of her debut novel, The Secret of the Codex! .
I might be receieving an ARC of this soon and I'm so excited to read it and share my review with y'all. .
This heart racing archaeological supernatural thriller will be releasing on August 28th, so make sure to keep an eye out for it!
Somewhere, buried deep underground, lies an ancient Secret…
When archaeology professor Kayla Harrington heads to Belize for the summer, she discovers a collection of Mayan hieroglyphs detailing stories of a powerful Secret. But when her colleague, Grady McGready, joins in the search, she begins to realize that there’s more to this secret—and to him—than she thought.
But secrets don’t stay hidden by chance…
As Kayla and Grady get closer to uncovering the Secret—and the power it promises—they, along with grad students Mandy and Justin, are thrust into the hands of a ruthless Clan determined to prevent the Secret from being released at all costs. Through deadly rainforests, raging rivers, and hidden passageways, the four embark on a journey to bring to light a Secret that has been hidden from the world for far too long.

You thought you had it figured out...but then you turned the page. .
I was very happy that I decided to purchase this book shortly after its release date. Mr. King doesn’t disappoint. As a proud SK follower, I was certainly welcoming of the celeb appearance(s?) who made it to this little (not really) story! I was so excited that I jumped out of my chair. I heard there was a tie-in but I was not going to snoop around the internet for a spoiler, and I will not do that to you. The twists in this one leave you totally engaged and you are notoriously surprised every step of the way. .

I’m definitely going through a @mikegaylethenovelist
phase! A heartwarming and insightful rom com with the two main characters telling their story. I just love love ❤️
03:04am, insomnia is rife this evening, bub is refusing to get comfy in the tummy, and I am sweltering. However, I have just finished this brilliant book and had to share it with the world. I've just joined a book club and this was the 1st months pick! Aside from pregnancy hormones, this has all the ingredients of a good read and forced my eyes to leak considerably towards the end: romance, love, positivity, history, adventure and a tincy bit of madness. So if you are looking for a book to read, give this one a go as it is an enjoyable read and is unputdownable once you're truly stuck in. @rowanmcoleman @zoetheball #thesummerofimpossiblethings #bookclub #bookworm #read #ilovebooks #instagood #goodread
Bookworm2 is starting Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. She is so excited 😆. So am I because it’s pretty cool when your kid is reading a book/series you love so much. This is her longest book ever. ❤️#bookworm #bookstagram #harrypotter #bookworm2
We love a bit of Australian author appreciation, so we are getting involved with the @dymocksbooks #readaustralian
competition. Our favourite reading spot, with this incredible book by #kimscott
which is also one of our favourite covers 😍
The only Prime Day Deal I have claimed so far lol!
The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls is a memoir of her own life. It begins with Jeanette at 4 and being 1 of 3, soon to be 4 children. Her parents are childlike and selfish and raise their kids in extreme poverty and neglect without remorse. One of the things that makes this book so good is seeing Jeanette love the excitement of their “adventurous” life and then slowly becomes disillusioned by the life they lead. At 4 it’s exciting, at 15 she sees the extreme neglect that both of her parents willingly impose on their entire family to the point of going days without food and digging through trash cans. Willingly because her father is an engineer and her mother is a teacher but he wants to drink and have ideas while she wants to paint and worry about herself. Another thing I really loved about this book is the sibling love. How they have each others back is on another level. The entire book has to be read to be believed. #readingislife #theglasscastle #jeanettewalls
It bothers me how I put these books in the wrong order😂Anna was definitely my favourite out of the three! If you’ve read them let me know your favourite📖💕
Even though I 100% do not need any more books guess who bought two more? I got some Sherlock pastiches by Anthony Horowitz and they look so good!! I’m super excited for those as well😊I might need a poll to figure out what to read next😂📚
Today I've partnered with @inkstagramtours
to share Whiskey Girl with you!
Whiskey Girl is available now on so y'all can go check it out. It is a standalone and the synopsis sounds amazing! I'll leave it below 🙌🏻♥️
QOTD: what kind of music do you enjoy listening to?
• SYNOPSIS •
She was the one thing holding him together. Until she was gone.
And then there was whiskey.
Fallon Gentry has spent the last decade reliving one dark night in his head. The moment he lost the woman he loved when a single blink cascaded into a series of events that stole both of their lives. Now his nights are spent playing music in southern honky-tonks and nursing the memory of her the only way he knows how–at the bottom of a whiskey bottle.
A brief stint in Nashville, a hit song, and a brush with Hollywood couldn’t bring him closer to God, but when the ghost of Augusta Belle Branson appears in his corner of another lonely dive bar late after dark, he’s forced to confront everything he thought he knew about that fateful night, and a few things he didn’t.
He’s her contradiction, she’s his salvation.
A firestorm of emotion consumes them when they come together after ten lost years, every moment more revealing, more unpredictable, more intoxicating than the next until the only reckoning left for Fallon is the one he must make with himself. But this time, fate may have left an after-burn too bitter to swallow. This time, he may lose his whiskey girl for good.

(co-opting this hashtag) My beloved bookcases have gotten out of control. Between the 12-book lapse in my #kc52in52
story, hauls from the library shop, Book of the Month club, and the random Amazon packages (I swear I’m not ordering them!), my precarious alphabetization system has no hope. So I finally caved yesterday. I gave up on my different stacks and just placed them on the shelf. I can alphabetize later. No one is coming over to my house to scrutinize my bookcases. Which ways do you cut corners – in your reading life or otherwise – when life gets weird?
Rainy day here in the Pacific, plus along with these three books, I brought home a cold from my visit to freezing cold Australia! All these factors call for breakfast in bed ☕️🍌📚🌧🤧
Cannot wait to get stuck into these books, I’ve heard such great things about them all. I’ve read all of Ruth Ware’s other books and hope this one won’t let me down! 📚🖤
Still disappointed I only brought three books home with me, but my suitcase was already overweight and I nearly broke my back carrying my carry on and handbag (with two laptops, iPad, kindle, books, amongst other things) whilst trying to pretend these weren’t heavy at all so they wouldn’t weigh my carry on 😂 It’s a struggle living somewhere where books aren’t readily available... makes me thankful for my kindle! 🧡
یاداشت های بر رمان "زندگی مه آلود پریا" .
[دکتر هادی سبحانی استاد دانشگاه ]
"زندگی مه آلود پریا" روایتگر تنهایی و سرگشتگی زنی مدیر و کاریزماتیک است که با اتفاقی به انقلاب درونی رسیده و اشتباهی که در گذشته مرتکب شده مانند تصویری روشن جلوی چشمانش نمایان می شود. این داستان که تم روانشناسی و لایه های عرفانی دارد سیر انسان از روزمرگی را به سوی کمال مطرح می کند و از حالت روایت خطی خارج شده است بطوری که مخاطب با خواندن فصل اول و فصل دوم کاملا گیج شده و تصور می کند که قصه به عقب بر گشته است اما با خواندن فصل آخر با اتفاق جدیدی در لایه های سورئال در داستان مواجه می شود و کاملا غافلگیر می شود. .
[جبارآذین منتقد و مدرس سینما ]
حیات شورانگیز پریا در زندگی مه آلود ادبیات داستانی
پریا روایت زنی از جنس عشق و شیدایی و صبر و کمال است که از کوچه های باور و تردید مه آلود دیروز و امروز خود عبور کرده و تا اوج دست یابی او به آرامش و مانایی امتداد می یابد.
زندگی مه آلود پریا رمانی استخوان دار و خوش ساختار با محتوای ارزشی و مضامین ملموس اجتماعی که زندگی مادی و معنوی انسان را از دریچه نگرش یک زن و همراهان ره گم کردگان پیرامون او به تصویر کشیده است نوسان میان رنج و شادی ،تیره روزی و خوشبختی و مبارزه و تسلیم در بطن فضاهای واقع گرا و ماورا با بینشی اعتقادی فلسفی انسانی و اخلاقی بستر اصلی رمان جذاب مصطفوی است.
رمانی که مضامین آن بی تردید مخاطب را به سوی خود کشانده و وقتی با شخصیت های آن و به خصوص پریا همراه می شود تا داستان را به پایان نرساند به آرامش نمی رسد.
[عرفان ذبیحی دانشجوی ادبیات]
"زندگی مه آلود پریا" داستانی روانشناسی و جامعه شناختی است و قهرمان آن پریا زنی موفق و کاریزماتیک است که بسیار جذاب ، پر تعلیق و متفاوت روایت شده است در فصل اول ما با زن و مرد جوانی مواجه می شویم که برای پیدا کردن گمشده خود در جاده مه آلود گرفتار شده اند و با تصادفی که برای آنها اتفاق می افتد شخصیت اصلی داستان، پریا به دره ای پرتاب شده و داستان از فصل دوم آغاز می شود. نویسنده سعی کرده داستان را در مرز ر ئال و سورئال پیش ببرد و تا حدودی این مرز را کمرنگ کند گرچه نگارش این نوع روایت بسیار دشوار است اما نویسنده توانسته بسیار موفق عمل کند و شاید یکی از علتهای پرفروش بودن این کتاب این گونه روایت کردن باشد . .

Can’t put this down now that I finally have some time to read! #fierce
is a book about very strong women in a very cold city. There is tragedy and loss and healing and long hard look at some of the fucked up things that happen to Indigenous women in the land that is now called Canada. I look forward to the day when books like this reflect the past not the present. And still, for all that it is a hard read, I could barely put it down. The characters are beautifully crafted and the plot is compelling. I suggest you pick it up if you have not already done so.
Trigger warning for sexual violence and abuse against indigenous women in this one.

One Of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus.
I love this book so much, it’s basically about these 5 kids who end up in detention with each other. Only, four walk out alive. I had so much fun figuring out who killed Simon! I really recommend this book and you should get your hands on it as soon as possible! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Omg that was my first post! Did you guys like it? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Wow, this Monday has been a lot, definitely need to curl up with a good book and a cup of coffee or tea tonight. I was at Costco, and couldn’t resist purchasing another two books for my TBR list- I’ll show you guys soon! ~ N. •
How’s the start of everyone’s week? Good? Bad? Both? Neither? Let us know!:)
I have about eleventy-grillion singular tasks + two solid weeks of editing before I’m ready, but I can hardly WAIT to share the cover of SPEAK OF THE DEVIL with you. I received the final, *final* proof last week, ripped it open, looked at my husband and said...this sucks. WTF was I thinking? He looked it over, managed a straight face, handed it to me and simply said, back to the drawing board you go. So, smart that one. 👌🏼
This week I’m excited to start from scratch with a completely different concept and if all goes according to plan, fingers crossed, it should be ready around August 6th. 😊
P.S. If you’re a #bookblogger
you can sign up for promo & ARC’s using the link in my bio. I’m pretty certain you won’t regret it seeing that not only have I poured blood, sweat, and tears into this one but I included my pride too. 😉

Kroger had a coupon for 1.5 pint containers of ice cream for $0.99. Said coupon could be used up to 5x. How many 1.5 pint containers of ice cream do you think we bought? 😈😋😍🍧🍦
