I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy: When I realized this was sold out everywhere, I placed a Libby hold assuming it would be months before it became available. Somehow, it popped up sooner than expected but only took me one day to read – I won’t say anything that anyone else hasn’t, but infinite content warnings for this (abuse, assault, disordered eating, and so on). Jennette did a very brave thing sharing her story, and this book is getting a lot of buzz for good reason. For the record, I was a tad too old for iCarly but I was somewhat familiar with the show – you don’t need any background with the show to appreciate this book.
Put Out to Pasture (Farm to Table Mysteries #2) by Amanda Flower: This was a read-in-one-day sort of cozy mystery that was good in the moment but not super memorable. The fall vibes are lovely and the characters are solid. However, I prefer the author’s Amish Candy Shop Mystery series. Thank you Poisoned Pen Press for the finished copy!
Below Zero (The STEMinist Novellas #3) by Ali Hazelwood: I have finally finished this little trilogy of novellas, and am almost caught up with Ali Hazelwood’s work. When it comes to her books if you’ve read one, you’ve kind of read them all…but I still find them enjoyable. I enjoyed the STEMinist novellas more than The Love Hypothesis, so i’m really interested to see where Love on the Brain ends up.
Crazy Stupid Bromance (Bromance Book Club #3) by Lyssa Kay Adams: This series is delightful and I do recommend reading them in order, just so you can feel like you’re part of all of the inside jokes by the time you hit book three. Noah isn’t my FAVORITE of the male protagonists, but he’s still a great character. The Russian’s book is next, and book five is due in November, so i’m thinking I might catch up with the series by the end of this year.
