Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid

I read Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid for my neighborhood book club but it had been on my TBR for awhile. I felt like it was an easy read in that I read it fast and it held my attention throughout, but it was not an easy read as far as content. IContinue reading “Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid”

It’s a Wonderful Wife by Camille Pagen

I found this gem after listening to a Christmas interview series with Uplit Reads on Instagram. I’ve had an Audible account for a while but I’ve just really discovered the Audible Orginals that are included in the membership. It’s A Wonderful Wife was a modern take on the classic It’s A wonderful Life. Bailey theContinue reading “It’s a Wonderful Wife by Camille Pagen”

January Reading Wrap-up

The Girls at 17 Swann Street By Yara Zgheib Yara Zgheib did a great job of taking the reader into the world of eating disorders and in-patient recovery. The slippery slope that Anna slid down, removing one food group, controlling every bite and becoming obsessed with eating and food is hard to explain and understand from the outsideContinue reading “January Reading Wrap-up”

Crazy Rich Asians: Book Review Vs. Movie

Ahh. I waited all summer to get my hands on this book! I am still waiting on the rest of the series (insert Jeopardy theme song).

Bitter Orange: Book Review

I read The Bitter Orange as a buddy read through Goodreads called Book Club for Introverts. I struggled with this read in the beginning so much so I had a to take a break between every few pages.

I placed The Life She Was Given on hold through my library and forgot, so when the notice popped up on my email I was super excited, a fun little surprise.

Everything, Everything

Wow, wow, wow. I felt so many emotions during this read. I identified with each of the main characters and could feel for them as well as withthem. Imagine being a teenage girl trapped in a sterile house with just your mother, a nurse, the occasional tutor. No friends, certainly no boyfriend. No prom, orContinue reading “Everything, Everything”
