    1. Oo quite a few people have praised The Adversary so I’m interested in reading that one sooner rather than later. I was so pumped to read The Wicked Boy, I bought it when the hardback was published, it’s now out in paperback, and I still haven’t read it 🙈 ….Getting Life seems to be a popular one 🙂

  1. Some good choices. I’d like to review more non fiction too. I have Murder on the Home Front, Fragile Lives, The Wicked Boy and The Adversary on my TBR. I’m also really looking forward to reading This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay which I bought on release but still haven’t got to!

    1. The rating for Mad City on Goodreads is scary low but I got it as a Kindle first option but have been a lil put off reading it. And I don’t know why I’ve not picked up Ronda’s book yet – I know a bit about her and it looks like it’s going to be such an interesting read!

    1. Have you seen the ratings for Mad City on GR? It’s rather low and it’s really put me off reading it 🙈 the gist is, the content is good, the delivery poor so I’m nervous about reading. The Adversary, however, is getting great reviews and seems to be a popular one! Your rec of Getting Life is trending lol, a lot of commenters are adding it to their list – I need to stop talking about it and read it!

      1. Yes.. please stop talking and go read it😂😘I feel like I know you well enough by now to boss you around Janel😉There’s so much about that story I’m dying to discuss, we’ll need a DM conversation about it for sure. Funny you should mention the Goodreads reviews, after your post I went straight there even though my new year’s resolution is to first read books that sound good to me and THEN go to Goodreads so I’m not dismissing books because of low ratings before I give them a chance…I’m failing miserably because I saw the ratings for Mad City and some reviews and I was like yikes maybe I don’t want to read it🙈 Maybe we’ll both just go for The Adversary? I did check Amazon and it’s not available for kindle in the US which I’m bummed about…I’ll check my library

      2. I already own Mad City so I’ll read it first and let you know if you need to read it or if the reviews are true. Like sometimes, people feel they have to give a positive review and get caught up in the hype, maybe people are feeling like they have to give this one a low rating because everyone else seems to have disliked it 🤔 And yes, once I finish the next two Juul books, I’ll read it! 😊

  2. I love non-fiction but don’t read as much as I would like – mainly because it takes longer and I always seem to be playing catch up nowadays with so many review copies. I would love to read The Wicked Boy and also In True Blood.

  3. Thank you so much for the mention, I’m so flattered!!! Your list looks excellent and I can’t wait to see your thoughts on these this year. I LOVE Girl, Interrupted and you already know how I feel about Hunger 🙂 I have The Adversary on my TBR too, and I’m adding Murder on the Home Front, Mad City and Getting Life thanks to you, I hadn’t seen those before. I’m sure you’ll have a great year of nonfiction ahead!!

      1. I’m so thrilled to hear that! That’s exactly what I hoped to do with my blog, to get people interested, reinterested, or giving a chance to nonfiction. I’ve gotten so many good recs from you too, very happy we found one another! 😊

      1. That is so true… Lately though I’ve been watching replays and before the replays I’ve actually managed to spoiler myself on who won 😀 but I am just not able to stay up all night.. bleh… maybe one day again 🙂
