Less than a week ago, I had knee surgery. So…right now…I am sitting around with my knee propped up, watching WAY too much Netflix, Little House on the Prairie on the DVR (don’t judge), and reading. Reading is one of my favorite things to do. When I knew I was going to be having knee surgery, I decided to put together a reading bucket list.

Like I said, reading is one of my favorite things to do. I like it so much, I started a book review blog called A Real Page Turner. Go check it out! I read a wide variety of genres. My favorites are mystery and suspense, thriller, young adult and true crime. I will read cheesy romance novels from time to time, but only when I need a brain cleanser from something totally creepy and scary I just read!
Reading Bucket List
James Patterson is my favorite author. I have been reading his books FOREVER. This particular book is about a black man in Mississippi that is being accused of murder. His lawyer is a total newbie that has never tried a criminal case. Will she get him off or will he get the death penalty?
Educated by Tara Westover is a memoir that was recommended to by a friend. It is about a girl that was kept out of school that made the decision to leave her family. She heads out into the world, attends Cambridge University and earns herself a PhD!
This book was a FREE Amazon First Reads book. Typically I like the Amazon First Reads books. We Were Mothers by Katie Sise caught my attention because the description said this was a novel full of twists and dark secrets. Missing woman; unfaithful husband; I was definitely intrigued!
Serial killers, the FBI, missing people…that’s the type of books I like to read (and scare myself with). If it is part of a series, EVEN BETTER! A Killers Mind by Mike Omer is about a serial killer that embalms their victims and poses them as if they are still alive. Not only that, but the FBI agent on the case, starts receiving envelopes that reveals a connection to killings from her childhood!
This book may be a little difficult to read. It is a true story about a mom that dropped her kids off a bridge into the Willamette River. Miraculously, one child survived. Nancy Rommelmann embarks on a journey to discover what drives a mother to murder her own children.
