- Slowly getting through Under the Dome by Stephen King. Only 800+ more pages to go 😅 After I'm done I want to check out the television show. Have you seen it? #bookstagram #igreads #goodreads #books #underthedome #stephenking #mystery #bibliophileI found Salvage by Alexandra Duncan in a book pile, thought the cover was pretty and had to take a photo. Have any of you read this book? What did you think? #bookstagram #igreads #goodreads #salvage #alexandraduncan #yareads #youngadultbooks #sciencefiction #bibliophile #booksAnother recent purchase -- My Sister, The Serial Killer. Set in Nigeria, "when Korede's dinner is interrupted one night by a distress call from her sister, Ayoola, she knows what's expected of her: bleach, rubber gloves, nerves of steel and a strong stomach." #bookstagram #igreads #goodreads #mysistertheserialkiller #oyinkanbraithwaite #thriller #mystery #contemporaryfiction #thickerthanwater #bibliophileRecent purchase -- Bunny by Mona Awad. Samantha is "utterly repelled by the rest of her fiction writing cohort -- a clique of unbearably twee rich girls who call each other "Bunny" and seem to move and speak as one". We find out what happens once she gets invited into the world of the Bunnies. The genres listed is Horror yet Contemporary Fiction so I am curious to know how that collides. #bookstagram #igreads #goodreads #recentpurchase #bunny #monaawad #monaawadbunny #bibliophile #vikingpublishing #horrorfiction #literaryfiction #contemporaryfiction"The old Victorian pier was once a thing of beauty. It's also where twenty one year old Sophie Collier vanished eighteen years ago". After being constantly haunted for 20 years by the disappearance of her best friend, Frankie receives a phone call that her body has been found and she returns to the small town to start reluctantly digging into the past. Excited to give this one a go in the coming months! #bookstagram #igreads #goodreads #localgirlmissing #clairedouglas #mystery #thriller #suspense #penguinbooks #bibliophileRecently finished Warp by Lev Grossman. It's has a low rating on Goodreads but I enjoyed it. Nothing really happens but you get sucked in to the day of Hollis and the sci-fi characters that interject in his mind. ⭐⭐⭐ Would be great for those that are familiar with his Magicians series. I am not but I didn't mind. It's a coming of age story of a 20-something trying to find their place in the world after college. #bookstagram #igreads #goodreads #recentlyread #warp #levgrossman #sciencefiction #comingofage #bibliophile
