The Unseen World

The Unseen World by Liz Moore I would not have picked this up if it were not the February pick for Modern Mrs Darcy’s Book Club.  Reading the cover copy, I would have been all in for “a coming of age story”, but not so much with “glimpses into the development of artificial intelligence and...

Things You Save in a Fire

Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center This is a re-read for me because my local library book club is reading this in February.  However, it’s a great book, so I don’t mind.  In fact I have read a few books by Katherine Center (another will be posted soon) and I really enjoy...

Rock Paper Scissors

Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney   If you like a twisty thriller - pick this one up! The Premise:  Amelia and Adam win a weekend get-away to Scotland. Since their marriage is on the rocks, they see this as an opportunity to reconnect, but nothing is as it seems.  Their accommodations are not what they... Continue Reading →

It Ends With Us

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover This was not the book I expected, but that’s okay.  I expected something a little more “thriller” after reading her book Verity.  That is not what this is.   Trigger warning - domestic violence. The Premise: This is the story of Lily and the two loves of her life. ... Continue Reading →

The Binding

The Binding by Bridget Collins I just finished this book in audio and immediately ordered a physical copy to re-read as soon as it arrives.  I loved this book in audio, but there was so much going on, I fear I missed things.  The premise: Imagine a world where books are actually bound memories.  When...

The Gift of Imperfection

The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown The inside flap describes Brene as “...a gifted mapmaker and a fellow traveler.  She is both a social scientist and a kitchen-table friend to whom you can always count on to tell the truth, make you laugh, and, on occasion, cry with you.”  Yep, that sounds about right....

The Once and Future Witches

The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow What could be more perfect for Halloween than a book about witches?! The Premise: This is a story of three sisters (Bella, Agnes and June) overcoming a horrible childhood and reconnecting as adults. Add in women's suffrage & racial inequality and you end up with a...

Home Before Dark

Home Before Dark by Riley Sager In the summer I love a light and fluffy book or a sweeping adventure. But as October roles around, I tend to turn to books that are a little darker and a little spookier. There is nothing like a book about a haunted house to get me in the... Continue Reading →

Prodigal Summer

Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver I have been meaning to read a Kingsolver book for well over a year, having three sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read.  I chose this one for the title alone, because it just seemed an obvious choice for summer reading.  If you are tired of fighting library hold...

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 →
