People We Meet on Vacation

People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry Last year I read Henry’s book Beach Read and loved it.  As a matter of fact, I just re-read that to see if it was as good as I remembered (it was).  Beach Read was an ‘enemies to lovers’ romantic trop.  People We Meet on Vacation is... Continue Reading →

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 →

Ten Beach Road

Ten Beach Road by Wendy Wax I love beachy books in the summer.  This book is on the Modern Mrs Darcy Summer Reading List and I had to pick it up.  I must say, it was not at all what I was expecting, it was even better. The Premise: Three strangers (Maddie, Avery and Nikki)... Continue Reading →

Downstair Girl

The Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee I’m not a huge fan of young adult novels, however, I have picked up some good ones lately.  The Downstairs Girl is best described as young adult historical fiction that opened my eyes to racial issues beyond those of black vs white. The Premise – Jo is a young... 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 →

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 →
