These Are a Few of My Favorite Things – Advanced Reader Copies

Hi everyone and welcome to a series I started a while back called These Are a Few of My Favorite Things!

While I have talked a lot about my likes and dislikes on the blog, both bookish and non-bookish, I’m going to use this segment to discuss more of the things I love and why. These segments will contain my all time favorites.

Ever since I’ve joined reading, I’ve read and reviewed numerous Advanced Reader Copies or ARC’s. On NetGalley alone, I’ve reviewed about 60 ARC’s and have about 20 more pending. Since ARC’s aren’t already well established as popular, some turn out great where others fail to hit the mark. I thought I’d mention a few ARC’s that turned out to be unusually awesome! Here we go –

ONLY DEAD ON THE INSIDE BY JAMES BREAKWELL

51t5eHmXCEL._SY346_

This one makes the list because of how excited I was that I got approved for an ARC. I’d been following James Breakwell and his adorable kids on Twitter for a few years before the books release so I was really looking forward to the book and so glad that I got an ARC on NetGalley!


SADIE BY COURTNEY SUMMERS

34810320

Sadie was a gripping read! I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the book and boy was it emotional. Instant 5 star read and one of my favorites this year!


BABY TEETH BY ZOJE STAGE

35410511

Baby Teeth was a terrifying, creepy, horrific read. It is one of the only books that actually gave me goosebumps. Hannah is one terrifying kid. 5 Stars again!


THE PHANTOM TREE BY NICOLA CORNICK

32618152

The Phantom Tree makes the list for an amazing plot. It has Tudor ladies, present day madness, time travel and Mary Seymour! Even though it didn’t pan out as great as I hope it would be, it makes this list for sheer originality.


THE SEVEN DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE BY STUART TURTON

35967101

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle makes this list because how happy I was when I got approved for this one! I’d seen many people raving about the book and couldn’t believe my luck when I got a chance to read and review it on NetGalley.


WORKMAN’S COMPLICATION BY RICH LEDER

22466395

I received a copy of the entire series of McCall and Company from the author and I’ve been recommending it to everyone I know ever since. The series is so underrated because it combines two of my favorite genres – Mystery and Humor. Definitely loved it.


HERDING CATS BY SARAH ANDERSEN

I’ve been reading some of Sarah Andersen’s work for a while now, and was hence overjoyed when I received an ARC for this one. Glad it didn’t disappoint!


NEED TO KNOW BY KAREN CLEVELAND

34404002

Need to Know turned out more interesting than I expected. It’s all about spies and the government and how it affects the life of a happy family. Loved it!


THE AUSTEN ESCAPE BY KATHERINE REAY

34460584

The Austen Escape was a really cutesy chick flick and I enjoyed reading it quite a lot!


AFTER ANNA BY LISA SCOTTOLINE

34964864

I love Mysteries and Thrillers and After Anna was a pretty perfect read! 4 stars, because I lost interest a little in the beginning, but a great read otherwise.

And that’s all for today! Hope you have a great day! Until next time –
