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…

Darling Rose Gold – Stephanie Wrobel

If you followed the insane story of Gypsy Rose or watched the Hulu series called The Act, then you’re familiar with the premise of Darling Rose Gold. Although the book does not make mention of directly correlating to the true story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard, it is nearly identical. The Act on Hulu fascinated me, as did the…
