    Mid-Month Musings:
    Hellooo, bookworms! We're back with your mid-month dose of literary goodness on My Sister's TBR. June is in full swing, and even though life feels like a whirlwind, we've carved out some time to chat about the books keeping us company and the latest buzz in the book world.

    What We're Reading:
    This month, our reading tastes are as diverse as ever. Rebecca’s still lost in the captivating world of Prythian with "A Court of Silver Flames," while Stacey is venturing into the magical realm of "Lightlark" for our June book club pick. There's a pause on mafia romance with "Created on Chaos," but the quirky charm of "The Love of My Afterlife" is filling the void with laughter.

    And then there's our featured read, "Just For the Summer" by Abby Jimenez. Seriously, this book is pure sunshine! We're both smitten with Emma and Justin's fake dating escapades, and we can't wait to share our full thoughts in our end-of-month deep dive on June 30th. Trust us, you won't want to miss it!

    Bookish News & Buzz:
    Of course, it wouldn't be a mid-month episode without some juicy book news. We're discussing Costco's surprising decision to scale back their book offerings, the exciting returns of both Suzanne Collins (with a new Hunger Games prequel) and Brandon Sanderson (with "Wind and Truth"), and the latest developments on Netflix's highly anticipated Narnia adaptation.

    2.10. Love, Loss, and a Little Bit of Murder

    May Book Wrap Up!
    May has been a whirlwind, hasn't it? Between work, life, and squeezing in as much reading as possible, it's a wonder we even had time to blink! But we wouldn't have it any other way. So grab your favorite beverage and settle in as we recap our literary adventures this month.
    Stacey's Reads:
    May was all about romance and a dash of dark fantasy for me.
    * The Viscount Who Loved Me (Bridgerton #2) by Julia Quinn: Anthony Bridgerton, anyone? This enemies-to-lovers story had me grinning like a fool.
    * Flawless by Elsie Silver: A small-town romance with a side of steaminess? Yes, please!
    * The Accidental Dating Experiment by Lauren Blakely: Fake dating turned real? Sign me up! This one was a fun and flirty escape.
    * Ranger by Rebecca Sharp: A bit of a departure with this one, diving into the world of romantic suspense. Twists and turns galore!
    * Made in Malice by Albany Walker: Dark RH romance with a strong female lead? Count me in.
    * Do Not Go Gentle (Harry Potter Fanfiction) by Senlinyu: A darker take on the wizarding world, but beautifully written and utterly captivating.
    Rebecca's Reads:
    This month, I dove headfirst into suspense.
    * The Perfect Son by Frieda McFadden: A chilling thriller that kept me guessing until the very end.
    * The Coworker by Frieda McFadden: Another hit from McFadden! This office thriller was packed with secrets and betrayals.
    Our Shared Read: Dear John
    For our Featured Read, we both read Nicholas Sparks' tearjerker, Dear John. After finishing, we delved into a deep discussion about the book and the movie adaptation, comparing and contrasting the two. Let's just say the movie took some interesting liberties with the story... (If you've read it, you know what we mean!)
    Looking Ahead to June...
    June promises to be just as busy, but we're determined to carve out even more reading time. Stay tuned for our next Featured Read pick and for more reviews and recommendations!
    What have you been reading this month? Any favorites you'd recommend? Drop a comment below – we'd love to hear from you!

    2.09. We Solemnly Swear We're Up to Bookish Good

    May Madness: Book Slumps, Screen Adaptations, & Our TBR Explosions
    Hey bookworms! Welcome back to the My Sister's TBR. This month is a whirlwind of bookish excitement, from book-to-screen announcements to a teetering TBR pile that's threatening to topple over. So grab your favorite drink, settle in, and let's dive into the May madness!
    Stacey's Reading Rollercoaster 🎢
    I'll be honest, folks, I'm in a bit of a reading slump. My attention span is shorter than a TikTok video, and I'm jumping from book to book like a caffeine-fueled squirrel. Currently, I'm bouncing between "Ranger" by Dr. Rebecca Sharp (hot AF!), "Godkiller" by Hannah Kaner (fantasy vibes), "An Offer from a Gentleman" by Julia Quinn (Bridgerton anyone?), and of course, our featured read, "Dear John" by Nicholas Sparks (pass the tissues). It's a chaotic mix, but hey, sometimes you just gotta embrace the literary chaos!
    Rebecca's Reading Rampage 🚀
    Unlike my scatterbrained sister, I'm having a fantastic reading month. I'm still riding the Freida McFadden wave (can't get enough of her twisty thrillers!), currently devouring "The Coworker" by McFadden, "Home is Where the Bodies Are" by Jeneva Rose (UnREAL), and "Devourer of Men" by Nikki St. Crowe (Our girl seriously surprised us with this one!). But honestly, if you haven't discovered McFadden yet, what are you waiting for?
    From Page to Screen 🎥
    May is a HUGE month for book-to-screen adaptations news, and we're geeking out! We discuss the upcoming "Fourth Wing" series (dragons!), Elle Kennedy's "Girl Abroad" (Bridgerton vibes!), and a few other juicy projects in the works. Trust us, you won't want to miss our full episode for the details and our opinions.
    May's TBR Temptations 🔥
    Our TBR piles are officially out of control. We're most excited for "I Hope This Finds You Well" by Natalie Sue, "My Darling Dreadful Thing" by Johanna Van Veen, "Lies and Weddings" by Kevin Kwan, "This Summer Will Be Different" by Carley Fortune, "Everything We Never Said" by Sloan Harlow, "When Among Crows" by Veronica Roth, "The Paradise Problem" by Christina Lauren, and "All My Love" by Morgan Elizabeth.

    From Dukes to Daddies: A Steamy April Wrap-Up with My Sister's TBR
    Welcome back, bookworms, to another episode recap from My Sister's TBR! This month, we ventured beyond our comfort zones and dove headfirst into some sci-fi and (our usual) seriously steamy reads. Buckle up because we're about to spill all the tea on the age gaps, aliens, and swoon-worthy moments that filled our April TBRs.
    Stacey Takes a Sci-Fi Detour:
    First up, we have resident romantasy lover Stacey surprisingly diving into the world of sci-fi. "All Systems Red" by Martha Wells, a novella about a grumpy murderbot with a heart of gold, piqued her interest. Let's just say, robots with existential angst aren't what we expected from Stacey, but it sounds like a fun and unexpected read!
    Balancing Spice with Sweetness:
    Next, Stacey took a sharp turn into the world of graphic novels with "Crave" by Marie Llovet. This one promises a blend of dark academia and forbidden desire – not exactly light bedtime reading! Balancing the heat, Stacey also dove into some swoon-worthy romances, "Not Another Love Song" by Julie Soto , "The Things We Leave Unfinished" by Rebecca Yarros, and “The Stand-in” by Lily Chu”. She also tackled the horror book club book “The Final Girl Support Group” by Grady Hendrix Sounds like a month full of emotional rollercoasters for Stacey!
    Rebecca Sticks to the Familiar:
    Meanwhile, your girl Rebecca stayed firmly rooted in the world of romance. "Girl Abroad" by Elle Kennedy, a classic enemies-to-lovers trope, delivered the witty banter and steamy encounters she craves. Then, there was "Older" by Jennifer Hartmann, which tackled the age-gap romance trope. We'll delve deeper into this one in a bit, but let's just say it delivered on the emotional connection and earned its positive reviews. And lets not forget the taboo “Your Dad Will Do” by Katee Robert! This one had us seriously questioning our morals.
    The Duke Takes Center Stage:
    Now, the moment you've all been waiting for – our Featured Read of the Month, "The Duke and I" by Julia Quinn! This Bridgerton phenomenon had us swooning, giggling, and maybe even a little frustrated (looking at you, Daphne!). We dissect the comparisons to the Netflix show, what worked for us, and what fell a little flat.
    Spoiler Alert: We loved the banter between Daphne and Simon (seriously, some top-notch dialogue!), and the slow-burn romance had us cheering for their happily ever after. However, some plot points felt a bit rushed, and certain aspects haven't aged as gracefully as we'd hoped. Overall, it's a fun read that perfectly captures the essence of a Regency romance, but don't expect a flawless masterpiece.
    Looking Ahead: Dear John by Nicholas Sparks:
    Prepare the tissues, folks! Our next Featured Read will be the ever-popular "Dear John" by Nicholas Sparks. We're ready to dissect the emotional rollercoaster, epic love story, and inevitable heartbreak Nicholas Sparks is famous for. So, grab your copy, settle in with a box of tissues, and get ready for a deep dive into this classic tearjerker.
    Join the Conversation!
    As always, we want to hear from you! What books did you devour in April? Did you love or loathe "The Duke and I"? And are you excited to get swept away by "Dear John"? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to follow us for more bookish adventures! Find us on Instagram, @mysisterstbr
