How many of you are a member of BOTM? I absolutely love my BOTM subscription. I decided to take a picture of all my BOTM books, and they fit PERFECTLY in my wire basket! .
.

I know a lot of people are bad at staying up on reading their BOTMs. I'm almost finished with Things You Save in a Fire, and then have to read Recursion. Otherwise, I've read all my BOTM selections! I've loved them all, minus a few. .

What constitutes a scared straight read? I love when a book plays out like a scary movie. You can easily transport yourself into the setting and feel the fear of the characters. A good book makes me wince and cringe. My heartbeat spikes, my palms get sweaty (it’s natural, people!), and I get the feeling that someone is watching me in an otherwise empty room.

No Exit - this book was gory and played out like a slasher film. It terrified me. I cringe every time I see a door jam.

Recursion - the twisted Groundhog Day scenarios were frightening, especially when you knew they were coming.

Behind Her Eyes - that ending. Mic drop. So deliciously twisted and a total wtf moment.

Lock Every Door - the characters had just the right amount of creepy to put you on edge. The dumbwaiter, gargoyles and the library wallpaper were unsettling in an already chilling setting.

The Winter Sister - the sound of Sylvie’s sister tapping on their bedroom window haunts me. The window is locked and she leaves. A few days later, she is found murdered.

After the Eclipse - this is a true story of a girl who hears her mother being murdered. That chapter gives me the chills whenever I think about the repeated moaning, “no”. I had to put the book out of plain sight because it gives me the creeps.

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ reads for me! These are my books for 2019 that I’ve read and absolutely rushed through. I’m a sucker for thrillers but as you see some romcoms have hit the stack. 6 more months of hitting the books. I can’t wait to add to this stack. Featuring my kitten, Poppy June 💜

The story of a sister who returns home to care for her sick mother, and has to work through her guilt from the night her sister disappeared. Extremely well written with many twists and turns. It’s about betrayal, heartache, love and grief. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #atriabooks #megancollins #thewintersister #booksofinstagram #goodreads

The Winter Sister is a slow-burn, melancholic, haunting thriller/suspense story about Slyvie who returns to the hometown she fled away from as soon as she won the RISD scholarship. It was her ticket to get out from a place that was causing her so much grief and guilt, because sixteen years ago, her sister, Persephone, was murdered and her death remains unsolved. But when her alcoholic and ailing mother, Annie, needs someone to care of her now, Sylvie has no choice but to return home. Slyvie begins to unravel family secrets and she may be closer to the truth about what happened to Persephone that night.
.

This was a surprisingly good read in which I enjoyed thoroughly. Besides the suspense and mystery plot, this story also explores the complex bond between an estranged mother and daughter that will evoke a gamut of emotions in readers. If you enjoy mystery and family drama with deep, dark buried secrets, this may be the book for you! .

My third and final pick for July’s BOTM.
.

I’ve been seeing this one all over Bookstagram and had to add it to my box.
.

Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be able to fit it into my TBR but I’ll definitely give it a read in August.

Checked off another @bookofthemonth as part of the #botmsummerslam challenge. Slowly but surely making it through the stack of unread ones. •
•
Synopsis: Sylvie finds out that her mom is sick with cancer and she needs to return home to help care for her. Sylvie and her mom don’t have a close relationship anymore, not after the murder of her sister. Her sister, Persephone, was murdered when she was 18. Sylvie has always been convinced that it was her sister’s boyfriend Ben that killed her. Of course, things are never as they seem and Sylvie has a lot to learn about what really happened that night. Her mother, Ben, and even herself all have secrets they have been keeping about that night and so much more. •
•
Definitely a lot of twists and turns in this one. Some of them were predictable and I wasn’t surprised by them, others of course caught me off guard. This was a good suspense novel that gave you the who dunnit feel. It was a easy read and moved at a quick pace. I will give this one a 🖤🖤🖤🖤/5 and suggest you check it out. •

🇺🇸 Happy early 4th of July! 🇺🇸 •

I call my creation “The Star-Spangled Pie.” Blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries are the food definition of summer for me, and what better way to celebrate the holiday than to make them look patriotic? •

The irony is not lost on me that I finally got around to my February BOTM - winter-themed, of course - in the middle of summer. 🤦🏻‍♀️ However, this book was a great summer read - a quick, engrossing thriller. •

The Winter Sister is about Sylvie and her sister Persephone, who disappeared one night and was found strangled a few days later. Twelve years later, Sylvie must return home to care for her ailing mother. Persephone’s killer still hasn’t been found, and Sylvie still has more questions than answers. She begins to work to uncover the truth, and soon, many secrets are unearthed. •

As I said, this was a quick read for me and it kept me engrossed the whole time. I do wish there would have been a bit more character development and overall depth, but if you’re looking for a holiday weekend read, this would be a good contender. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ •

If you live in the US, what are your Fourth of July plans? I am super excited to dive into Riley Sager’s new book over the holiday weekend!

This one was fun! I am finally getting all caught up on my #bookofthemonth books, and again, I couldn’t put this one down. 
When Sylvie’s sister, Persephone, is found strangled to death in the woods by a jogger, her life is changed forever. Her relationship with her mother becomes strained and she is desperate to get out of her hometown where everyone refers to her as “Persephone’s sister”. Sixteen plus years later Sylvie is forced to return home when her mother is diagnosed with cancer. While caring for her mother she starts to look into what happened to her sister on that cold winter night . When Sylvie runs into Ben, Persephone’s old boyfriend and the last person to see her alive, she is jolted into action and will not stop until the mystery is solved.

What does your July TBR look like? This is just a few of the books I own that I haven't read yet, but I don't think I'm going to read them yet unless you all can convince me! Are any of these amazing or should I unhaul?
On a sad note, our beach vacation has come to an end and we are currently driving back home to reality. 😢
