Hey guys! I am excited to announce that I am now a Book of the Month affiliate. I will start doing a monthly haul to share my book selections. I will continue to attempt to read at least one BOTM selection, whether the current one or one from a past month.
November is a very busy month for new releases, as everyone can attest. Especially November 5th. Due to that, I chose to have two books in my BOTM box.
1. The Great Pretender: The Undercover Mission That Changed Our Understanding of Madness by Susannah Cahalan
Surprisingly, I have already read this book. This is a narrative nonfiction surrounding the famous study of David Rosenhan’s titled “On Being Sane in Insane Places.” Published in 1973, it had an essential impact on the changes we made to treat mental illness. While it moved the psychiatric system away from the problem of asylums, it led to the current problem we have of the lack of psychiatric beds to treat individuals.
2. The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White
This book, written by Kiersten White, is a new young adult fantasy series surrounding the legend of King Arthur. For more information, including a synopsis, check out it’s Goodreads page here.
What books did you get in your November Box. Don’t forget, I am an affiliate and you can get your first book for only $5. Check out my referral link here.
I’m back! I know I haven’t posted in some time, but I am planning on changing that. I thought I would come back with a book haul. There will be many more book hauls over the next few weeks to show all the books I have bought over the past 6 months. Let me say, there are many.

Hello! Today I thought I would do something a little different by showing you the books I currently have checked out from the library. Let you know why these particular titles interested me and hold myself accountable to read them in a timely fashion.
1. Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
I have heard so many good things about this book! If you have kept up with the young adult book community, I’m sure you have heard of this book at least a dozen times. The first in a series, Truly Devious is a mystery/thriller novel set around a Vermont academy, where a mysterious cold case took place decades before. I am looking forward to following the main character around as she navigates the complexities of a new school and the mysterious clues left behind, in an attempt to solve the mystery.
