Shelf Control #18

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I can’t believe it’s almost the end of June and I’m a month closer to seeing my boyfriend. Anyways, that’s not what you’re here for, you’re here for my Shelf Control post.

Similar to the last 2 weeks, I’ll be focusing on a book featuring a character on the LGBTQIA spectrum or an author who is on the spectrum. Here is what Shelf Control is and the rules: Shelf Control is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves. Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up! For more info on what Shelf Control is all about, check out my introductory post, here.


  • Write a blog post about a book that you own that you haven’t read yet.
  • Add your link in the comments!
  • If you’d be so kind, I’d appreciate a link back from your own post.
  • Check out other posts, and…have fun 🙂

Published: 2018 // Length: 384 pages

Kay Donovan may have skeletons in her closet, but the past is past, and she’s reinvented herself entirely. Now she’s a star soccer player whose group of gorgeous friends run their private school with effortless popularity and acerbic wit. But when a girl’s body is found in the lake, Kay’s carefully constructed life begins to topple.

The dead girl has left Kay a computer-coded scavenger hunt, which, as it unravels, begins to implicate suspect after suspect, until Kay herself is in the crosshairs of a murder investigation. But if Kay’s finally backed into a corner, she’ll do what it takes to survive. Because at Bates Academy, the truth is something you make…not something that happened.

Why I want to read People Like Us: I have this in ebook format and it only makes me want a Kindle even more. Anyways, I want to read this book because I’ve heard fellow bloggers rave about it. I also think it’s a boarding school setting along with some f/f romance, female friendship and a mystery.

Even though I haven’t read it yet, it sounds like it could be an incredible movie!

  1. Hi Rebecca 🙂 I haven’t read this book but that sounds like a super interesting premise. Hope that you will enjoy it!
    The graphics on this blog is amazing by the way. I love how you make all your images fit one colour scheme 🙂
