The Divines

The Divines by Ellie Eaton I went to a very small public school in a rural town, so in some ways this book was like stepping into another world. The Premise - The story is narrated in 2 timelines, present day Joe (Josephine) and her teenage life as a Divine....a student at a posh boarding... Continue Reading →

Fire Keeper’s Daughter

Fire Keeper's Daughter by Angeline Boulley I don't read a lot of Young Adult books but I'm glad I picked this one up! I was advised that audio might be a good way to go for this one and it was. If there are going to be non-english words or an accent, audio can add... Continue Reading →

Everyone Brave is Forgiven

Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave If I hadn't heard someone wax poetic about this book, I probably wouldn't have picked it up because I'm currently going through a "please, no more WWII books" phase. However, I'm glad I ignored myself and listened to the recommendation. The premise - it's a WWII love story,... Continue Reading →

Writers & Lovers

Writers & Lovers by Lily King You know those books with a lot of plot? You suspensefully turn the pages to find out what is going to happen? Yeah, this isn't one of those. This is definately a character driven book. The Premise: Casey is 31 years old. Her mother recently died, she had a... Continue Reading →

The Tourist Attraction

The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler After the last two books, it's time for a super light read to give the brain a break! Although, if you're anything like me, you may shed a few tears. The premise: Zoey has been scrimping and saving to make her dream of an Alaska vacation a reality. When... Continue Reading →

Uncomfortable Conversations

Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man by Emmanuel Acho I first became aware of this book and of Acho when I watch an interview he did with Brene Brown. I'm a huge fan of Brene, but I don't follow everything she does and therefore can't recall how the video ended up on my screen. However,... Continue Reading →

The Echo Wife

The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey As I say about many books, I probably wouldn't have picked this up if I hadn't heard someone talking about it. The Premise: Evelyn's husband is having an affair...with a clone of Evelyn. But now, the husband is dead and Evelyn and her clone, Martine, have to pick up... Continue Reading →

Girl, Serpent, Thorn

Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust This is the second book I have read by Bashardoust. I think in all honesty, I enjoyed the first - Girls Made of Snow and Glass a bit more, but this one was very good as well. My only complaint is that in a few parts, it felt a... Continue Reading →

Anxious People

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman I can already tell this is going to be one of my favorites for 2021! Similar to A Man Called Ove, Backman tells a sad story with a bunch of laugh out loud humor. The characters are hysterical, yet believable. The premise - a real-estate open house, a bank robbery... Continue Reading →

How The Light Gets In

How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny This is the 9th book in Penny's Inspector Gamache series. There are 16 books in this series so starting it is a commitment. While book 7 still remains my favorite so far, I really enjoyed How the Light Gets In. This installment of the series has us... Continue Reading →
