28 Summers – reread

28 Summers by Elin Hilderbrand This was a re-read for me.  It is by far my favorite Elin Hilderbrand book, and I have read many!  I love the way she take a light beachy story and adds such believable characters that pull at my heart strings. Here is the link to my previous post on... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

A Discovery of Witches

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness This is book #1 of The All Souls Trilogy. I read this series a few years ago, and was recently reminded of it when hearing someone suggest the series as their “go-to” Fall read.  I remembered that I liked the books, but as I picked them up again,...

Project 333

Project 333 by Courtney Carver I have followed Courtney Carver’s blog (Be More with Less) for years and read her previous book Soulful Simplicity.  I love her and I have to admit that I have an obsession with minimalism and I love the idea of capsule wardrobes! If this piqued you interest, pick up this... Continue Reading →

Big Summer

Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner While this clearly looks like a light summer read, there was bit more substance here than I expected. The Premise: Daphne is a plus-size Instagram influencer.  She got her start when a video of her telling off a guy that had been bribed by well meaning friends to flirt with... Continue Reading →

The Secret Life of Bees

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd The nice thing about having a library in my house is that I fill the shelves with books that sound good to me, but by the time I pick them up, I have forgotten what the premise is.  Since I know the books all intrigued me... Continue Reading →

Plainsong Series

Plainsong/Eventide/Benediction by Kent Haruf I read Plainsong a couple of years ago and loved it.  I had wanted to read the rest of the series and finally got around to it.  Of course, because so much time had passed, I had to start with rereading Plainsong. Plainsong – definitely a character driven story, as nothing... Continue Reading →
