The Library of Lost and Founds

The Library of Lost and Founds by Phaedra Patrick There was more going on in this book than I had anticipated.  This was the February pick for my library book discussion group. Between the title and the cover (which was cute), I expected it to be a very light read.  It did manage to maintain... Continue Reading →

The Girl in the Rearview Mirror

The Premise: Finn works as the nanny of a sweet little girl belonging to a political family.  The little girl’s grandpa is a senator, and soon her father will be running for office as well.  Everything they do is somehow related to either getting into or staying in office. Having no real connection to her... Continue Reading →

The Family Upstairs

The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell This was one of my 5BIGR (Books I’m Gonna Read) this winter.  I have been trying to read this book for months, but it keeps getting pushed to the side for book club reads and library checkouts.  I finally picked it up and whoa...I loved it! The Premise -... Continue Reading →

Body Thrive

Body Thrive by Cate Stillman This is technically a re-read, but now it takes on an all new meaning.  I am now participating in Cate’s Body Thrive course, so I am working with her and her team, along with many other people who are also interested in living healthier.  Working through Body Thrive is prep...

A Dangerous Collaboration

A Dangerous Collaboration by Deanna Raybourn If you follow this blog, then you probably know that I love this book series.  This is book 4 in the Veronica Speedwell Mystery series, and like the previous 3, it’s delectable.  Actually, I will admit I enjoyed this one more than book 3, so that’s saying something! In... Continue Reading →

Daiquiri

Daiquiri (The Official Downton Abbey Cocktail Book, pg 57) When I hear ‘daiquiri’, my mind immediately goes to strawberries. A strawberry daiquiri made in the spring with fresh strawberries - delish, but that's a different post!  A straight up, standard daiquiri looks a little different! 2oz white rum 3/4oz lime juice 3/4oz simple syrup Add...

Say You’re Sorry

Say You’re Sorry by Melinda Leigh This one was recommended to me by my husband.  We don’t always have the same taste in books, but sometimes we do. This is a perfect example of the book stars aligning. There is a lot going on in this book, so it appeals to lovers of many genres.... Continue Reading →

The Testaments

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood I had been looking at this book on my shelf.  I wanted to read it, but at the same time, I didn't.  Once I read it, the story will be done and I just don’t want it to end.   I loved The Handmaid’s Tale.  The story was amazing. The characters... Continue Reading →

Such A Fun Age

Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid This book has been getting lots of hype.  And I have to say, I was a little under-whelmed while I read it, but now I keep finding myself thinking about it after the fact (a sure sign of a good book). The Premise:  We have a privileged white... Continue Reading →

The Real Thing

The Real Thing by Ellen McCarthy A cute essay collection about love and relationships, written by a former wedding reporter.  I found it enjoyable (for awhile), but I realized I’m not really a fan of essays. Therefore, I only made it about ½ way through before I called it quits.   I typically don’t write about... Continue Reading →
