Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots

Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots Super Heroes and Henchmen…not my typical go-to topic, but something about this just sounded fun.  And it was!! The Premise: Anna is just a lowly temp, doing office work for Villains.  It’s not a bad gig, until she ends up on a field assignment and is badly injured by a... Continue Reading →

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 →
