Hey guys! It’s bank holiday again this weekend, which basically means lounging around not doing much of anything! This weeks pick for me is a book that I ordered at the beginning of May, that only just arrived a couple of days ago!! Along with that, whoever delivered it just left it on the doorstep… which I think is crazy! I was actually 250km away when it was delivered, so it could have been delivered and stolen and I would never have known! Anyway…
Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson
Published: October 11th 2016 by G. P. Putnam’s sons books for young readers
A bittersweet homecoming holds dark secrets in this heart-wrenching story of loss, love, and survival for readers of Room.
When sixteen-year-old Amy returns home, she can’t tell her family what’s happened to her. She can’t tell them where she’s been since she and her best friend, her cousin Dee, were kidnapped six years ago—who stole them from their families or what’s become of Dee. She has to stay silent because she’s afraid of what might happen next, and she’s desperate to protect her secrets at any cost.
Amy tries to readjust to life at “home,” but nothing she does feels right. She’s a stranger in her own family, and the guilt that she’s the one who returned is insurmountable. Amy soon realizes that keeping secrets won’t change what’s happened, and they may end up hurting those she loves the most. She has to go back in order to move forward, risking everything along the way. Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee is a riveting, affecting story of loss and hope.

Ohh, I haven’t heard of that book before, but it sounds quite intriguing! 🙂 Thank you for sharing! 🙂
It does! I’m really looking forward to it 🙂
Very creepy cover!
I agree!! I hate those dolls as well 😂
This sounds like a mysteriously fun read! The cover is full of heebie jeebies haha. I am glad it was still waiting safely when you returned. Enjoy 🙂
Well that is certainly a creepy cover. I’m not a fan of dolls or eyes so this is two of my fear factors in one cover. Still I hope you enjoy this book Lauren, and I really hope it’s worth the wait as well considering how long to took to get to you! 😀
I absolutely detest these dolls with a huge amount of passion!! I’m also deathly afraid of them … but I loved the synopsis, so I couldn’t pass up on this book. Plus, it’s not as if it’s a real doll looking back at me, right? 👀👀🙈
Hopefully the book won’t be as creepy as the cover then. Or if that’s what your looking for I hope the book is even creepier than the cover! 😀
I don’t mind creepy books – just the cover is horrible 😂😂
I don’t even like creepy books, let alone creepy covers! 🙂
I like creepy books, but I’m difficult to creep out 😂
That really is a creepy cover! However, it sounds really interesting. I’m adding this one for sure. I hope you like it !!😀
I know right!! It looks so good!!
I hope you enjoy this book!! I can’t wait to see what you think of it. It has been on my to buy list for ages. Probably will be my next buy lol.
I love that the cover is so creepy. But I hate those dolls, or just dolls in general lol.
I’m so excited to jump into it!! I also hate dolls! More specifically China dolls – actually scare me half to death 😂😂
