Hello everyone!

 I am back with another monthly book haul! I definitely went a little overboard with the book buying this month, I was doing good, until that buying spree I went on in the middle of the month!

Anyways, here are all the books I got this month!


Special thanks to Penguin Canada for sending me Lost and Found by Brooke Davis to review, as well as OwlCrate for providing me a box to review that included Everything That Makes You by Moriah McStay!


Monday Reviews - The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews! This week, I am reviewing a book I read last week, The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand.

As always, stating off with the synopsis:


There's death all around us.
We just don't pay attention.
Until we do.

The last time Lex was happy, it was before. When she had a family that was whole. A boyfriend she loved. Friends who didn't look at her like she might break down at any moment.

Now she's just the girl whose brother killed himself. And it feels like that's all she'll ever be.

As Lex starts to put her life back together, she tries to block out what happened the night Tyler died. But there's a secret she hasn't told anyone-a text Tyler sent, that could have changed everything.

Lex's brother is gone. But Lex is about to discover that a ghost doesn't have to be real to keep you from moving on.

From New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand, The Last Time We Say Goodbye is a gorgeous and heart-…

Monday Reviews - Last Will and Testament by Dahlia Adler

Image
Hello everyone!

It has been a little while, but I am back with another Monday Reviews! This week, I am reviewing Last Will and Testament by Dahlia Adler! I was sent an e-ARC from the author for review but all opinions expressed are my own.

As always, a synopsis:


Lizzie Brandt was valedictorian of her high school class, but at Radleigh University, all she's acing are partying and hooking up with the wrong guys. But all that changes when her parents are killed in a tragic accident, making her guardian to her two younger brothers. To keep them out of foster care, she'll have to fix up her image, her life, and her GPA—fast. Too bad the only person on campus she can go to for help is her humorless, pedantic Byzantine History TA, Connor Lawson, who isn't exactly Lizzie's biggest fan.

But Connor surprises her. Not only is he a great tutor, but he’s also a pretty great babysitter. And chauffeur. And listener. And he understands exactly what it’s like to be on your own before you…
