So here’s my 3 W’s for the week.
Little Monsters by Kara Thomas
Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. Kacey’s new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls—she’s even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.
Which is why it’s so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don’t invite her to the biggest party of the year, it doesn’t exactly feel like an accident. But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly, Broken Falls doesn’t seem so welcoming after all—especially once everyone starts looking to the new girl for answers.
Kacey is about to learn some very important lessons: Sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes when you’re the new girl, you shouldn’t trust anyone.
I finished reading this book on Monday night though I am yet to write the review. It has been a while since I read a YA mystery. Look out for my review this coming Friday.
A Daughter’s Courage by Renita D’Silva
1929. When a passionate love affair threatens to leave Lucy in disgrace, she chooses a respectable marriage over a life of shame. With her husband, coffee plantation owner James, she travels to her new home in India, leaving her troubled past behind her.Everything in India is new to Lucy, from the jewel-coloured fabrics to the exotic spices. When her path crosses that of Gowri, a young woman who tends the temple on the plantation’s edge, Lucy is curious to find out more about her, and the events that lead her to live in isolation from her family…
Now. With her career in shatters and her heart broken by the man she thought was her future, Kayva flees from bustling Mumbai to her hometown. A crumbling temple has been discovered in a village nearby, along with letters detailing its tragic history – desperate pleas from a young woman called Gowri. As Kavya learns of Gowri and Lucy’s painful story, she begins to understand the terrible sacrifices that were made and the decision the two women took that changed their lives forever. Can the secrets of the past help Kavya to rebuild her life?
I am just a few pages in. The setting is lovely as usual. I love books set in India. However, this is already an emotional read and I have a feeling that it is about to get worse. Still very addictive tough.
All Good Things by Claire Fisher
Twenty-one year old Beth is in prison. The thing she did is so bad she doesn’t deserve to ever feel good again. But her counselor, Erika, won’t give up on her. She asks Beth to make a list of all the good things in her life. So Beth starts to write down her story, from sharing silences with Foster Dad No. 1, to flirting in the Odeon on Orange Wednesdays, to the very first time she sniffed her baby’s head.
But at the end of her story, Beth must confront the bad thing. What is the truth hiding behind her crime? And does anyone-even a 100% bad person-deserve a chance to be good?
The Breakdown by B. A Paris
Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside―the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she’d stopped.
But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn’t have a baby. The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt. Or the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her…
I can’t wait to read these two books although they both have very mixed reviews.
So what are you reading? Let me know in the comments section.
You are probably wondering…whats with the colorful/tablet pics Diana? Right? You asked yourself that as soon as you saw this post, true? no?Okay, I will tell you anyway.
I joined Instagram a while back and after lurking in the shadows for weeks wondering how comes everyone is so creative and just good at photography, I decided to try out some pics for bookstagram. I am not creative in that way and at first, it felt too intimidating. However, I have decided to just have some fun. The above are my first ‘instagramish’ pics. I know I will get it with time but I am just enjoying taking the pics rights now. Don’t laugh, I am a newbie at this 🙂

Let me know if you are on instagram so that I can follow you. Where do you get your ideas/inspiration for your photos? Private or public account, which one is best? Any information will be appreciated. Thanks.
