I am back and ready to inform you of my progress on my Summer TBR Wipeout 2016! If you missed what this is all about then click here for my intro post along with all the books I put on my tbr wipeout list.
I began the TBR Wipeout determined to finish all five books. With two weeks done, I realized how hard I will actually have to work to finish the job. What am I talking about, you ask? Well… I may have only finished one book right now. And we’re two weeks in. One book, two weeks. The math doesn’t really add up for me. Unless you add in work, youth group, VBS, and a vacation in which I was at a music festival. Yeah… I definitely have to work harder.
Anyways, done with the mini rant. Which book did you finish? Oh, thanks for asking. I finished reading All Fall Down by Ally Carter.
Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:
1. She is not crazy.
2. Her mother was murdered.
3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.
As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her — so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door, who is keeping his eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.
Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can’t control Grace — no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do. Her past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.
Seems super good, right? Well, the book is ten times better than you think it is. Even if you think it will be phenomenal. I have a review written and scheduled for All Fall Down for early August, so keep your eyes open for that review!
How far are you in your tbr wipeout? Have you read All Fall Down? If so, what did you think? Any strategies for helping me tackle the TBR wipeout list with a busy life thrown in? Let me know in the comments!
Much love, XOXO,
