What the Hell am I Reading?

I am so bored. I have no books to review (at least not until I finish them) or the ones I can review can’t be released until a later date. Sooooo, that means y’all get a “what in the world am I reading” post! I’m currently reading four books because why not torture myself? and I’ve included my thoughts on what I’ve read so far. Let’s do this!


Mary Jekyll, alone and penniless following her parents’ death, is curious about the secrets of her father’s mysterious past. One clue in particular hints that Edward Hyde, her father’s former friend and a murderer, may be nearby, and there is a reward for information leading to his capture…a reward that would solve all of her immediate financial woes.

But her hunt leads her to Hyde’s daughter, Diana, a feral child left to be raised by nuns. With the assistance of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, Mary continues her search for the elusive Hyde, and soon befriends more women, all of whom have been created through terrifying experimentation: Beatrice Rappaccini, Catherin Moreau, and Justine Frankenstein.

When their investigations lead them to the discovery of a secret society of immoral and power-crazed scientists, the horrors of their past return. Now it is up to the monsters to finally triumph over the monstrous.

Thoughts so far: I love this premise. The beginning is pretty slow before you meet the other characters besides Mary, but now that I’m halfway through, I’m really liking the dynamic between all the women. Can’t wait to learn more about their individual stories.


The only thing August Pfeiffer hates more than algebra is living in a vampire town. Located at a nexus of mystical energy fields, Fulton Heights is practically an electromagnet for supernatural drama. And when a mysterious (and annoyingly hot) vampire boy arrives with a cryptic warning, Auggie suddenly finds himself at the center of it. An ancient and terrible power is returning to the earthly realm, and somehow Auggie seems to be the only one who can stop it.

Thoughts so far: This has been really hilarious so far. I’m only about 100 pages in, but August is already experiencing some weird shit. It will be interesting to see who he can actually trust. Right now, I have my suspicions. I can’t wait to see if I’m right.


When Iris Armstrong goes missing, her best friend Terry, wife, mother and all-round worrier, is convinced something bad has happened.

And when she finds her glamorous, feisty friend, she’s right: Iris is setting out on a journey that she plans to make her last.

The only way for Terry to stop Iris is to join her, on a road trip that will take her, Iris and Terry’s confused father Eugene onto a ferry, across the Irish sea and into an adventure that will change all of their lives.

Somehow what should be the worst six days of Terry’s life turn into the best.

Thoughts so far: WHY DID I NOT REALIZE FROM THE SYNOPSIS THAT THIS IS A SUICIDE BOOK???? This always happens to me. I put on a nice movie while I’m by myself and BOOM! Guess what?? One of the characters dies by suicide or at least makes an attempt. It’s a curse. 

That being said, this has been a fun book so far. Yes, it has darkness lingering over everything, but I like it. I’m very nervous for how it’s going to end, but I’m preparing myself.

I requested this book because it seemed similar to the book I’m writing and I’m desperate for comparisons I could possibly give to agents. Turns out, it wouldn’t be the greatest comp, but it’s still great!


This Passover is starting to feel like the ten plagues might be coming back to haunt them before the weekend is over…one hilarious misstep after the next.

Gaby Fineberg just wants to get through Passover Seder without her “well meaning” family playing matchmaker. She needs a date, just for one simple meal – that includes singing, the history of her forefathers, and not one bit of yeast. The hot guy at her gym would be perfect. He probably hates bread, anyway, with a body like that. But when she finally works up the nerve to ask him…he doesn’t hear a word she said.

Levi Miller is deaf and happily single. Initially, he doesn’t know why this beautiful woman is talking to him, but it’s clear she needs help – and suddenly so does he. In a very complicated situation, Levi finds a simple solution. Gaby will pretend to be his new girlfriend to bail him out, and he’ll return the favor. But he didn’t bargain for a family dinner quite like this one…

Thoughts so far: I had this sitting around my Kindle for a bit so I thought I’d finally read it. I initially bought it because the title is EVERYTHING and it can be difficult to find Jewish romances that aren’t historical fiction and take place during the Holocaust. 

This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s fun and sweet and HOT AF. And they haven’t even slept together yet! If you’re looking for a fun romance, definitely give this one a shot!

What are you reading right now? Let me know in the comments below!

And if you enjoy my reviews and ramblings, feel free to buy me a coffee at my ko-fi!. I  appreciate you all so much!!

  1. This is the most hysterical, honest and just brilliant thing I’ve ever read– truthfully this is my Goodreads always- like I know it says what I’m reading but half the time its wrong and sometimes I mean to take something off the shelf and don’t or move it wrong and then its messed up and its an ARC that’ll be finished that week anyway but still… this is great!
