Lucky Broken Girl – Ruth Behar

In an effort to expand my horizons and diversify the types of books I read, I grabbed Lucky Broken Girl from the library and loved it! This book is geared for young readers but I loved the messages the reader can take away. This book is an #OwnVoices story, which means it’s written by an…

Park Avenue Summer – Renee Rosen

In my quest of love for all things NYC, I picked up Park Avenue Summer and it was just what I hoped it would be! A little nostalgia, a little glam, and a whole lot of women empowerment, this book was a gem. Based around the true story of Helen Gurley Brown, Cosmopolitan magazine’s first female editor-in-chief, Park Avenue…

You and Me and Us – Alison Hammer

I’m not sure where to start with this one, other than You and Me and Us is one of the most emotional yet beautiful books I’ve read in a long time. I want to preface by saying – this book may be highly sensitive and triggering for someone who has lost a parent or spouse to cancer, or…

Beach Read – Emily Henry

If you think you’re about to read a chick-lit book about a beach vacation when you pick up Beach Read, then you are wrong. Myself included, I had no idea the depth to this book and upon reading several similar reviews, concluded that the title (and cover art) is incredibly captivating and misleading at the same time. …

That’s A Wrap!

Another month has come and gone which means it’s time for a monthly wrap up of my August reads. If you can’t tell, my preferences severely favored chick-lit, which is highly unlike me under normal circumstances. While the world is still in a very weird and confusing place, I’ve learned I only have the mental…

My Wife Said You May Want To Marry Me – Jason B. Rosenthal

My Wife Said You May Want To Marry Me is a new memoir written by a widowed man detailing his life before, during, and after his wife passed away from ovarian cancer. While, this book isn’t my favorite and is definitely sad in nature, I think a lot of people will appreciate the raw honesty in…

July Reads

It’s been a few months since I posted a monthly book wrap up but I had a pretty solid reading month in July, coming out with 6 books; all of whom I thoroughly enjoyed! It’s entertaining to see the different genres I read each month; as this insane year goes by it appears that I…

Love & Gelato – Jenna Evans Welch

O.M.G. – my new favorite book of 2020, and possibly my top 5 of all time! How have I never heard about this book before?! Warning – this review is long, like really long. And I’m sorry for that but I just have way too much to say about this book and want to be sure I…

The Lies That Bind – Emily Giffin

  I’ve been waiting for Emily Giffin’s new book to release for so long; after reading All We Ever Wanted, her most recent before this one, I could hardly wait for The Lies That Bind. I know there are dedicated readers of her early work, like Something Borrowed and Something Blue, and after reading her latest two I can’t believe I…
