Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are back as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele for the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, titled Fifty Shades Darker.
It is so crazy when it's time to choose a book of the month selection. I literally have to stop from listing at least three books to the mix. Specifically for the 'book of the month' picks. This is of course a direct result of my very lengthy TBR book list. The smorgasbord of anticipated reads that I want to devour continues to grow.

The book of the month selection for August is Terry McMillan's newest novel, I Almost Forgot About You. I'm a fan of Terry McMillan's novels, yet realized I hadn't read her recent work. I Almost Forgot About You was also one of the books I wanted to read this summer. Terry McMillan's writing style flows with such a matter of fact, in your face narrative that you can appreciate as a reader.

As we begin to really get into summer, the anticipation of delving into new reads and uncovering gems along the way is still there. While I don't post every book I read, I like to at least post a book of the month and highlight additional books of various genres periodically. For the month of July, comes a thrilling page turner from bestselling suspense author James Patterson w/ David Ellis. The July 2016 book of the month selection is The Murder House.
I wanted my next read to be a mystery thriller and The Murder House seems like it might fit the bill.
If you're looking for something new to read that is a dark romance laced with edgy and shocking plot twists; The Twist Me Trilogy by Anna Zaires is a blazing series you must pick as one of your summer reads. This is the first series I've read by Anna Zaires, but it won't be the last.
Need more convincing?
My quick summary of the series:
It's graduation time...Nora is hyped. She's about to turn 18, the guy she crushed on in high school finally shows interest and come fall...she will start college. All is well..until she meets Julian. Julian is older, sinfully stunning and extremely dangerous. Julian becomes disturbingly obsessed with Nora. Leading him to do the unthinkable. The real "twist" is hella crazy. Julian's past unfolds and Nora can't help but be drawn to the man she despises...a man that kills. But, sometimes...all is not what it seems.
You will quickly get caught up in this astonishing series that is filled with shock, intrigue, suspense and a dark romance that will leave you baffled...but, perhaps not in the way you think it will.

With summer comes a little more time available to enjoy even more great reads. In my case, I'm also giddy at the prospect of finally being able to dive in on my TBR pile and unearthing the stories that I simply could not wait to read any longer.

The book of the month pick this month is from bestselling author Carrie Ryan. I have to say, you will instantly be pulled into this story after reading the first chapter. The synthesis of the writing flow and embodiment of this engrossing suspense thriller will take readers on a ride that propels you to anxiously wonder...what will happen next?
