Read a Book with a Badass Female Main Character

Read a Book By a Black Author

Read a Predicted 5 star Read

In Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, “the Pulitzer Prize–winning, bestselling author of The Warmth of Other Suns examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped America and shows how our lives today are still defined by a hierarchy of human divisions.”


Read a Horror Middle Grade Book

Dead Voices is the spine tingling sequel to Katherine Arden’s Small Spaces. When I read this book a few years ago I got so swept up in the story that I forgot it was supposed to be a family read. LOL Looking forward to see where Arden takes Ollie and friends in this next chapter.

In this first installment of Robert Pobi’s Lucas Page series, former FBI agent Lucas Page must find a sniper bent on revenge before his family find themselves in the sniper’s lens.

Good Girls Lie by J.T. Ellison

“Everyone lies. To themselves, to each other. It’s a way to belong, to be included. To look important.”

Yes everyone lies, even Goode girls. The Goode School is an elite boarding school for the daughters of the nation’s scions. Its students are challenged to a rigorous curriculum and promised early entry into the country’s most prestigious universities.

Originally a home for wayward girls, The Goode School was where the displaced would be reinvented, entering back into society as independent and influencial women. What is expected of a Goode girl? Academic excellence, decorum and above all absolute honesty. Despite these aims The Goode School’s history has been marred with tragedy.

Told from both past and present perspectives, Good Girls Lie is full of intrigue. A remote town, secret societies, ghost stories, illicit love affairs, dysfunctional families come together to serve up the recipe for this page-turning mystery.

J.T. Ellison is the best selling author of more than 20 novels. Her books have been translated into 16 different languages. When she is not writing she enjoys cuddling with her husband and two cats.

Special thanks to NetGalley, Harlequin Mira and J.T. Ellison for access to this book.
