The Nest

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney This was a reread for me, and I can’t even tell you for certain why I picked it back up, but I think it may have just been the pretty cover.  I don’t think I cared for it too much on the first read, but I did enjoy it... Continue Reading →

Everyone is Beautiful

  Everyone is Beautiful by Katherine Center My work book club picked this for our February read.  I am a big Katherine Center fan. In fact, I think this is the 4th book of hers I’ve read. While this was not my favorite of her books, it did have me laughing in the beginning, worried... Continue Reading →

The Kingdom

The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg I don’t often pick up Young Adult (YA) books, but I heard good things about this one and decided to give it a go.  The Premise: The Stepford Wives go to Disney World. The narration bounces around in time.  We know Ana has been tried for murder, and we slowly... Continue Reading →

The Year of Magical Thinking

The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion The only reason I picked up this book is because it was a suggested flight pick for a Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club book.  I love a good memoir, but the catalyst for this just sounded a little too morose…and it was.  While there were parts of...

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 Book That Matters Most

The Book That Matters Most by Ann Hood I love a book about books, but you probably know that already.  The Book that Matters Most was no exception.  However, before I recommend this one to you, I must give a trigger warning - this book discusses some pretty heavy drug use and suicide.  I am...

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 Poisonwood Bible

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver Why did I wait so long to read this book?  It has been on my bookshelf for a couple years now. I have heard it recommended by several bookish bloggers, yet when I would read they synopsis, I just wasn’t sure Historical Fiction about the Congo was going to... Continue Reading →

Unfollow

Unfollow by Megan Phelps-Roper “A Memoir of Loving and Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church” If you are unfamiliar with the Westboro Baptist Church, take a moment to google them.  Let me just say, their website is godhatesfags.com.  What more do you need to know? Apparently, a lot!  This is an eye-opening read about extremists, hate... Continue Reading →

The Last Romantics

The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin Oh the drama… The premise - with narration that alternates between now and the past as well as from different points of view, we learn the story of the Skinner family.  When dad dies, mom goes into a long depression which the children come to refer to as ”the...
