#ReadForGrace | October 14


Most of us knew Grace from Rebel Mommy Book Blog. She was a really sweet, positive blogger and our blogging community was better for having her in it.

In July of this year we lost Grace to cancer. Lauren over at Bookmark Lit has issued a challenge and is requesting that we read a book for Grace each year on Grace's birthday (October 14). For full details, be sure to visit Lauren's post. She has created a spreadsheet of all of the books on Grace's wishlist, and she has posted several links to lists of books Grace was looking forward to reading.

If you'd like to join in and read something for Grace, we are using the hashtag #ReadForGrace. You can also consider sending a donation to METAvivor.

This year I'm choosing to read Lock Every Door by Riley Sager.



No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen's new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan's most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.

As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly, disturbingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew is not what it seems and the dark history hidden beneath its gleaming facade is starting to frighten her, Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story—until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.

Searching for the truth about Ingrid's disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew's dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building's hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.

If you'd like to join me in reading Lock Every Door, let me know. I'll be starting on Grace's birthday October 14. Also, let me know if you'll be taking part with a different book from Grace's wishlist.

  2. I think it is such a thoughtful & kind gesture of Lauren to be putting this together. Also, thank you, as seeing this post on Twitter is how I found out about #ReadForGrace.

    I will be reading My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing (from Grace's TBR) on October 14th.

    1. It's a yearly thing if you want to pick something up next year. I thought it was a lovely thing for Lauren to do.
