Goodreads Monday


Hello loves and Happy Monday! Hope you’re all having a great day so far and for those of you who have the day off today… Enjoy! It was really difficult for me to get out of bed this morning. Just wanted to stay all warm and cozy and sleep in. I feel like this week is going to be long, tiring and very busy… but I do have something to look forward to — Disneyland Date on Saturday!!! Disney days are my faves and it’s been almost two months since I last been there so I’m really excited to go. Anyway, lets get to my first ever Goodreads Monday post!

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme by Lauren’s Page Turners’ blog! To participate, just choose a random book from your Goodreads TBR and show it off. For this meme, I’ll be focusing on a random book that I don’t own (hardcopy or ebooks) on my Goodreads “want-to-read” page.

He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker


Published by Atria Books February 2, 2016

Genre(s): Adult, Mystery, Suspense, Romance

Pages: 353


On the surface, Celine Gonzalez had everything a twenty-eight-year-old woman could want: a one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a job that (mostly) paid the bills, and an acceptance letter to the prestigious Hollingsworth Institute of Art, where she would finally live out her dream of becoming an antiques appraiser for a major auction house. All she had worked so hard to achieve was finally within her reach. So why would she kill herself?

A man who was supposed to be her salvation . . .

Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a lethal cocktail of pills and vodka, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers a scandalous photograph in a lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man Celine believed would change her life.

Until he became her ruin.

On the hunt for evidence that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer. A killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.

I remember seeing this on Instagram and reading so many great things about it. I’ve never read anything by K.A. Tucker and I wasn’t that much into thrillers before, but after reading the synopsis on Goodreads, it sounded really exciting. I planned on either picking up the hard copy or ebook, but never did. Guess other books came out around the same time that I really wanted. Well, I’ve been reading quite a few thrillers with romance and enjoying them, so hopefully I’ll get to it this year. If I’m being honest, there are SO MANY books I’m hoping to read this year. Booknerd problems right?!?

Have any of you read this book? What did you think? Do you like thrillers and romance? Let me know in the comments below.

Have a wonderful week and happy reading!

  1. Hmmm this book does look good! I actually don’t think I’ve ever read any thriller/romance novels, but now I kinda want to. Have you read any? If so, what are your favorites?

    • My favorite right now is Vicarious and Ferocious by Paula Stokes. It’s a YA/NA thriller with romance too. It also deals with sensitive issues, but it’s beautifully written. I really enjoy and love books by Paula Stokes. She just knows how to make you FEEL… so I highly recommend you add this duology on you TBR =). If you do read them, let me know what you think.
