1984… Do I need to explain?
Thoughts: I have mixed feelings on this one. This book started slow, picked up for a bit, and has continued tediously. Right now I am at the part where he is reading through the underground history book and it is PAINFUL. I skipped a good portion, although, if I’m being honest, this may be because I’m listening to the audiobook rather than reading it straight.
I picked this up because: it was available at the library and on my TB(re)R list.

Nonfiction self help book regarding (you guessed it) sex.
Thoughts: I’ve decided that this is my Friday book so, every nonworking Friday, I pick this book up during my hubby’s weekly out-of-the-house time. This is mostly because these types of books completely embarrass me, even around him, but it is also because of a fear of him having some macho-weird out over the subject. All potential drama aside, this is a pretty darn good book so far.
I picked this up because: I won it through Goodreads First Reads program and it was a nominee for 2015’s Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Science & Technology.

Memoir of a Doctor
Thoughts: Holy Exclamation Points! I stalled on this book due to the excessive use of exclamation points, but am determined to finish reading. I find doctors’ lives interesting, although I am off put by this doctor’s reoccurring behavior (having affairs with married women, yet being turned off when they are also cheating on him; deciding to tackle life-and-death situations alone simple to boost his ego/prove himself; fixing self-caused problems selfishly and thoughtlessly).
I picked this up because: I am a sucker for doctor memoirs and it was immediately available on NetGalley (Can you say insta-gratification?) Also, I love the cover.

YA novel about a being who wakes up in a different human host each day, which isn’t a problem until they fall in love
Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. I didn’t feel like it had a strong ending – it was enough for me to be patient for the following book (if it happens), but not enough for me to feel full closure – but it was cute and I enjoyed the vulnerability of the characters.
I picked this up because… a good friend gave it to me for my birthday.

The next Gone Girl. (Just kidding…) A Then/Now tale of a seemingly perfect couple.
Thoughts: I wasn’t entirely stoked about this book, but it proved me wrong about what I am afraid of in a story. I previously believed that only paranormal beings scared me. Now I know better. It’s no secret that the relationship in this book is built on false pretenses, but the helplessness of the situation is truly terrifying.
I picked this up because… I’ve seen it around the blogs and it was a nominee for 2016’s Goodreads Choice Award for Mystery & Thriller & for Debut Goodreads Author

I have quite a list running – funny how quickly that happens. My current “next on the list” books are The Girl Before by JP Delaney (NetGalley), Revolution’s End: The Patty Hearst Kidnapping, Mind Control, and the Secret History of Donald DeFreeze and the SLA (Goodreads First Reads), and Five Children and It. Have you read any of these? Any advice (for any book)?
Yay for having steady internet again.
