Live in Love by Laura Akins

Live in Love was a book I found on NetGalley and instantly wanted to read because I love Thomas Rhett, the country singer for those that are not familiar. Several of his songs are like soundtracks to my life and I love that. I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with this whole family. AfterContinue reading “Live in Love by Laura Akins”

The Life She Wants by Robyn Carr

My first book of 2021! I had to start it with Robyn Carr. I discovered her thanks to the Netflix adaptation of Virgin River actually but it turned out I already owned a few of her books from the free section at the library, I’ve since collected over 20!! Anyway, to kick off what isContinue reading “The Life She Wants by Robyn Carr”

February Reading Wrap-Up

Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe By Carla Laureano I read Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe without reading Saturday Night Supper Club but I don’t feel like that took away from the story at all. I enjoyed the romance and the tragedy of loss and how both of those will determine how we make major decisions. There wereContinue reading “February Reading Wrap-Up”

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). I read Crazy Rich Asians in two days and watched the movie that night, they were both so funny and easy to get wrapped up in.  We all know that theContinue reading “Crazy Rich Asians: Book Review Vs. Movie”

I Am, I Am, I Am: Book Review

I Am, I Am, I Am: Seventeen Brushes With Death by Maggie O’Farrell was one of my favorite reads of 2018. I listened to it through Overdrive and I think that may have distracted from each of the recounts of near death. The stories were not chronological and it would have been helpful to see theContinue reading “I Am, I Am, I Am: Book Review”

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. But fellow readers told me to keep going so I did. I have a really hard time with DNFContinue reading “Bitter Orange: Book Review”

The Life She Was Given: Review

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. It also popped up as were preparing for hurricane Micheal so I had plenty of time to read while I listened to the winds outside. I’mContinue reading “The Life She Was Given: Review”

The Simplicity of Cider: Review

The Simplicity of Cider by Amy Reichert was the perfect fall read. Set in Door County, Wisconsin, described as a small town where everyone knows your name, and business. Idun’s Orchard ran by Einar Lund and his daughter Sanna, 5th generation apple growers, is the center of the story. Amy Reichert does such a fantastic jobContinue reading “The Simplicity of Cider: Review”

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”
