Show Us Your Books {May 2017}

Linking up with Steph and Jana for Show Us Your Books. This was a good month for books. I would recommend all of these! The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond – 4 stars Received from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. A newlywed couple gets themselves sucked into a secret, dark society. It’s equal parts creepy, intriguing and unbelievable. Wasn’t sure how I felt about the ending, it seemed like a let down but I didn’t exactly hate it. Overall, a great story because it really sucks you in. I stayed up a few nights much later than I should have because I didn’t want to put it down! Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia – 4 stars Received from Netgalley […]

Show Us Your Books {April 2017}

It’s that time of month where my To-Read list grows and grows! Here’s what I’ve been reading lately: Watching Edie by Camila Way – 3 stars Received from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. This book was disturbing in many ways, and I thought that I had it figured out but I didn’t. It’s about Heather and Edie, high school friends who had a strangely intense relationship for not knowing each other very long and whose friendship ended traumatically. Now in their thirties they are back in each others lives as Edie becomes a single mom. I really could not relate to either of the two and I went back and forth on which I disliked more or thought was crazier. It was a […]

What I’ve Been Reading (June)

Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid 5 stars  When I saw Kristen’s review of this book I knew it was right up my alley and I loved it! It’s the classic tale of how one decision can completely change the course of your life. The book opens the night that Hannah Martin moves home to L.A. after years of moving all over the country for various reasons. That night, the decision to go home with her high school sweetheart or to go home with her best friend after a night out leads her on two very different paths. From the opening, each chapter switches back and forth from one life to the next and I liked how this allowed the two stories to […]

What I’ve Been Reading (May)

It’s time for Show Us Your Books! Here’s the books I’ve read since the last link-up, in order of my favorite to least favorite: No One Knows by J.T. Ellison  4 out of 5 stars I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.   This is one of the first books I’ve read that almost lives up to it’s reputation of “a mystery as thrilling as The Girl on the Train”, almost but not quite. I really enjoyed the book, I didn’t want to put it down and really wanted know what happened next. The twists in it also took my complete surprise. I really liked the main character Aubrey, until the end. I wasn’t a huge fan of […]

What I’ve Been Reading…

It’s time to link up with Steph and Jana for another edition of Show Us Your Books and I have a confession to make: I may be slightly obsessed with getting the Audible Daily Deals. I just can’t stop! Through this, I’ve found a couple of good reads and a couple of duds. Here’s what I read/listened to this month: Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple 5/5 stars on Goodreads I had this book on my nightstand for months, I reached the maximum amount of library renewals on it but I’m so glad I finally took the time to read it before sending it back. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. It was an entertaining satire on Seattle culture and […]

Winter Reads

Somehow I only managed to finish three books in the last few months…I read pretty much every night but somehow don’t finish many books, I need to stop trying to read so many at once! I’ve finally signed up for an Audible Membership and have realized that I can finish books so much faster that way! BTW does anyone else think it would be so amazing if you could sync your Goodreads to-read list with your audible wish list? Anyways, here’s a recap of the few books I’ve read since my last Recent Reads update. Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter Must read! This was a recommendation from one of my favorite blogs for book reviews: Anchored to Sunshine, and it did not disappoint.  This was […]
