The TMI Book Tag

TMI Book TagCaitlynn, over at Thrice Read, decided to tag anyone who felt like doing the TMI book tag, so I thought I would give it a shot. After all, there is no such thing as too many bookish questions, right?


Book Review: The Red Car by Marcy Dermansky

28789723When I first saw The Red Car by Marcy Dermansky I immediately got a line from Shania Twain’s “That Don’t Impress Me Much” stuck in my head.

“I can’t believe you kiss your car goodnight. Come on baby, tell me, you must be joking right?”

The thing about Marcy Dermansky’s The Red Car, is that this isn’t a “guy who is obsessed with his car” story. No, this book turns that on its head, and shows two women commiserating in friendship. But one of them loves her red sports car.

Leah is living in Queens with her possessive husband Hans, who she doesn’t love, and a long list of unfulfilled ambitions. Then Leah is jolted out of the haze by a call from her pass. Her former boss, and best friend, Judy has died, and has left Leah with her most prized possession: her red sports  car. But, the red sports car is also the instrument of Judy’s death.

My Booktube-A-Thon TBR List

Booktube-a-Thon TBR PileI had only vaguely heard about the Booktube-A-Thon when Celeste @ Inked Books posted her TBR list and it looked amazing! She asked if I was going to participate and I said I wasn’t sure, but with some gentle prodding, I am here posting my TBR for this week. So, thank you Celeste for inspiring this insanity, and encouraging me to participate. 

The Booktuba-A-Thon starts Monday July 24th at midnight and continues until Sunday July 30th! For those seven days, a group of readers try to read as much as possible!

There are challenges on Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube, and it’s generally an event for the entire book community to read. You can find out more about it via any of these channels or you can watch this intro video! Hurry, it starts at midnight tonight! (Yes, queen of last minute TBRs!)

So, here’s my list of books for the challenges, I doubt I will get to all of them in the next seven days, but I am going to try! 

Book Review: Most Wanted by Lisa Scottoline

81q4j0cn7hl What if your sperm donor had done something criminal? That’s the plot of Most Wanted by Lisa Scottoline.

Marcus and Christine are finally expecting a baby. After a year of trying to conceive and a diagnosis of azoospermia (meaning Marcus produces no sperm), they decided to select a donor from a reputable sperm bank.

But things take a turn when, while celebrating her pregnancy with her friends from work, she sees a CNN report about the capture of The Nurse Murderer. Christine thinks she recognizes him as their donor.

Desperate for answers, Christine starts investigating the man she saw on CNN, and tries to answer the one question on everyone’s mind: is she carrying a serial killer’s child?
