My Reading List Vol. 1

Happy Monday, friends! First, I want to give a big thank you to everyone who completed my reader survey. I truly value and appreciate your responses, and look forward to incorporating your feedback into my content this year! I took last week off to digest and plan, and I’m looking forward to what’s to come!

Now, the title of this post is a bit misleading, as I’ve shared my favorite books of the moment and reading list in the past, which you can check out here. I wanted to change my format into something that’s easily digestible, and also because I just enjoy making the graphics :). With that said, there’s clearly a theme with this month’s list, as the books feature female-leads, involve a deeply complex relationship, and are all mysteries/thrillers. I’ve mentioned it before, but ever since reading Gone Girl all of those years ago – mysteries have become one of my favorite genres! In fact, I just started reading My Sister’s Grave this weekend (you can read my recommendation about it here).

I visited the Amazon Bookstore over the weekend (it’s seriously a must-visit if you’re ever in Chicago), and the bottom two books immediately caught my eye, so of course had to add them to my cart ASAP. Once I finish my current book, I’ll definitely be embarking on My Husband’s Wife, as I’ve heard so many good things about it. I mean, I’m pretty sure everyone is reading it!

If you’ve read any of things, I’d love to hear your review or your thoughts on any other books you’re engrossed in at the moment! Cheers to a great Monday, you guys!
