Goodreads Monday – June 5, 2017

I’m trying something new this summer! I first learned about Goodreads Monday from Steph at Steph’s Novel Fiction and I’m excited to join in ~ my TBR list is out of control, so I might as well have fun with it!

Goodreads Monday

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. If you want to participate, simply choose a random book from your TBR and show it off! Make sure you check out Lauren’s Page Turners and link back to her blog and add your own links!

The book I chose this week that is one that’s been on my Goodreads To-Read shelf since October 2015, and has now been sitting on my physical bookshelf since February of this year when it was an extra gift in my Book of the Month box.

TheGrownUpThe Grownup by Gillian Flynn
(Crown – November 2015)


A canny young woman is struggling to survive by perpetrating various levels of mostly harmless fraud. On a rainy April morning, she is reading auras at Spiritual Palms when Susan Burke walks in. A keen observer of human behavior, our unnamed narrator immediately diagnoses beautiful, rich Susan as an unhappy woman eager to give her lovely life a drama injection. However, when the “psychic” visits the eerie Victorian home that has been the source of Susan’s terror and grief, she realizes she may not have to pretend to believe in ghosts anymore. Miles, Susan’s teenage stepson, doesn’t help matters with his disturbing manner and grisly imagination. The three are soon locked in a chilling battle to discover where the evil truly lurks and what, if anything, can be done to escape it.

“The Grownup,” originally appeared as “What Do You Do?” in George R. R. Martin’s Rogues anthology.


Well, definitely because of Gone Girl! I have no idea why I haven’t just sat down with this! It’s only 60-some pages and a really tiny book. From my understanding, it’s actually a short story published in book form. Now that I’ve spent all this time posting about it, I’m going to make the time SOON to sit down with it!

Has anyone read this yet? Thoughts? What’s a book on YOUR TBR list right now?

Click here for the rest of my mile-long TBR list! I need to go in there and weed out the ones that I did actually read years ago and forgot to track in GR!

  1. Thanks for the shout out!! So glad you’re joining us for Goodreads Monday! I thought I had read every Gillian Flynn book until I read your post, lol! So, there’s one more for my TBR pile, and this one sounds really good too! You should definitely read it I think since it’s 60 pgs…at least to say you cleared one off your TBR list! 😀 I need to organize my list like yours! I just have them tossed on Goodreads…piling up more and more! And I just bought 2 more books from Amazon today hahaha and 1 from Target that I need to add to the list! It’s unending.


  2. Lol, I don’t think I add that many but at least 3 or 4!! I keep saying it’s a book lovers plight 📚😊 I can’t imagine not having new books to read or stack my TBR 😂
