REAL WORLD YA: People Kill People Review

Summary: From the publisher: A gun is sold in the classifieds after killing a spouse, bought by a teenager for needed protection. But which was it? Each has the incentive to pick up a gun, to fire it. Was it Rand or Cami, married teenagers with a young son? Was it Silas or Ashlyn, members of a white supremacist youth organization? Daniel, who fears retaliation because of his race, who possessively clings to Grace, the love of his life? Or Noelle, who lost everything after a devastating accident, and has sunk quietly into depression?

One tense week brings all six people into close contact in a town wrought with political and personal tensions. Someone will fire. And someone will die. But who?

Summer Reading Wrap-Up & Favorites

Summer 2018 was easily one of my best summers, with many thanks to all the books I read. As we transition from swimsuits to sweaters and iced coffee to PSL (even though I’m a hot chocolate and year-round iced coffee kind of girl), I wanted to take today to reflect on my summer reading and all the amazing books I read.

Short Summer Stats:

  • I read a total of 38: 12 in June, 15 in July & 11 in August
  • I read 17 ARCS and 21 published books
  • It’s SO hard to choose, but I think that July was my best reading month because I read some really awesome ARCs, binge-worthy books, and reread the first books in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved before trilogy (Always and Forever, Lara Jean reread  TBD).

READING & REWATCHES: August 2018 Wrap Up

As summer came to a close, I made sure to fill my August with as many days outside and books as possible. Between work, going on family vacation, and floating around the pool, I read a total of 11 book, rewatched some of my favorite TV shows, and watched To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before approximately 9 times. This fangirl will do ANYTHING to get that sequel.
