Monday seems to be my buying books day, I do not know why. However, my brain seems to have chosen this day (lucky you Mondays) for me to go forth and spend my money. I have been more sensible this month and only got three books, I WANTED MORE, MORE I TELL YOU. But here we are, with sensible me.
ALSO, may I add whether you care or do not. That two of these books were in the Buy one get One half price.

Apparently this book is being made into a film? Is this true? If someone could tell me that would be GR8. However, I’m very excited to read this, seems to be slightly mixed however a lot of people have spoken about how interesting they found this story.

Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.
Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl’s struggle for justice.
I’ve heard nothing but good reviews for this story.
Today I have started this and cannot wait to share my thoughts on this. This book seems like one that must be read by many, especially within the society we are living in now.

He killed me. He killed me not. He killed me.
It’s been happening since Min was eight. Every two years, on her birthday, a strange man finds her and murders her in cold blood. But hours later, she wakes up in a clearing just outside her tiny Idaho hometown—alone, unhurt, and with all evidence of the horrifying crime erased.
Across the valley, Noah just wants to be like everyone else. But he’s not. Nightmares of murder and death plague him, though he does his best to hide the signs. But when the world around him begins to spiral toward panic and destruction, Noah discovers that people have been lying to him his whole life. Everything changes in an eye blink.
I love a good thriller, however this seems a little bit of a twist. There seems to be mixed reviews on this, some people loved it and some hated it, a bit like Marmite. (ew, gross) Which makes it all the more exciting to try this.
Goodbye Folks! Til next Payday!
