tell me something tuesday


Tell Me Something Tuesday is hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings and discusses a wide range of topics from books to blogging.

Question: What are your Summer 2018 picks?

Answer:

I’m still trudging through my TBR pile.

I’m not complaining! - but I’ve been getting several unsolicited review copies in the mail. It's an eclectic mix (historical, contemporary, thriller, rom com) and they sound pretty good.

Below is a combination of those - Unsolicited from the publisher: ( The Game of Hope, Lies You Never Told Me, Save the Date) & from Macmillan's summer ARC package: (Summer Skin, Love Scene, Take Two & The Handsome Girl & Her Neanderthal Boy)

  1. Save the Date! I'm excited for that one. Morgan Matson is the best. Lies You Never Told Me is one I think I need to check out.

    1. Really??!!! I would recommend Amy & Roger's Epic Adventure. It's my favorite. And I would splurge for a physical copy because there are lists/playlists. Super cute.

  3. I haven't heard of any of these (books or authors). Hope they're good ones!

    I haven't given a thought to what I'm going to be reading this summer. I should make a list... Although, it's safe to add Iron and Magic and Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews seeing as I'll be inhaling those the second they hit my kindle! :) I'll probably finish off the Chicagoland Vampires too.

    1. I need to catch up on the Kate books. At least I can read them together.

      I'm a huge mood reader so I have no idea if this is what I'll end up reading lol

  4. I don't really have a summer reading list. I'll just read whatever. I'm a mood reader and read whatever I'm in the mood for.

    1. Oh no!!!! lol

      I did request two books on Netgalley but I never got a response. So I guess they are saving me from myself lol

  9. I have so many. I'm doing two reading challenges and a personal challenge so my list for summer is about 150 books.

  10. I'm still trying to get through the books on my kindle. I haven't bought anything new in a while.

    1. I got that under control a while ago but I did go on a pre-order bender last week. I will be having regrets soon lol

  11. Lies You Never Told Me might be my next one. For some reason that one appeals to me.

    1. I thought that would be the one that appealed to you lol

      I really want to enjoy a thriller but they don't always work out for me. I have heard good things about this one though so fingers crossed.

  12. Love Scene, Take Two was ridiculously cute! I got a little frustrated with Bennett a few times because she could run hot and cold with Teddy (poor guy) but overall it was so adorably fun. :)

  13. I hope you end up enjoying all of these! I hear good things about Save the Date. I need to read more Matson.

  18. I've just finished Save The Date and my goodness, such a long read but super, super cute! I love Morgan Matson books, they're always feel great reads with wonderful family dynamics and there's even a cameo from previous characters which I was thrilled to see. Such a magnificent list Karen! I'm preparing for winter here which is when I tend to read all those summer reads, living vicariously through the American summer ♥♥♥
