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…

June Wrap Up

– follow me on Instagram + Goodreads! – [HAPPY JULY!] How are we more than halfway through 2019?!? Time sure does fly. I’m wrapping up June with some great AND not-so-great reads, but that’s expected, right? I’ve felt a little lost the last few months with my reading life; I couldn’t quite find books that…

The Night Olivia Fell – Christina McDonald

– follow me on Instagram + Goodreads! –  The Night Olivia Fell is a captivating thriller that read at a quick pace. The last thriller I read fell incredibly flat, so I was hesitant to pick up another. I’ll admit, I’m not a huge fan of mysteries because they all tend to fall within a very…

What We Lose – Zinzi Clemmons

–  follow me on Instagram + Goodreads! –  If you’ve been with me for any amount of time, you know that I usually don’t review books that I rate 3 stars or under, unless I have something I really want to say about the book. Well, voila! I have something to say about What We Lose by Zinzi Clemmons….

The Girls at 17 Swann Street – Yara Zgheib

  The Girls at 17 Swann Street was the first book club pick for a few girlfriends and I, so I’ve been waiting to review it until after we had our meeting. We all had a pretty similar consensus – the book was interesting but it didn’t “wow” us. Anna is a professional dancer from France…

Suicide Notes – Michael Thomas Ford

If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you’d know that I typically only review/recommend books that are 4/5 stars and are stories that have truly impacted me in some way. However, I am breaking my own rule and am reviewing a 3 star book – Suicide Notes by Michael Thomas Ford. I know what you’re…

One Day In December – Josie Silver

Judging from the cover and title, One Day In December by Josie Silver seems like the perfect book to cozy up to under a nice warm blanket on a frigid December night! This is part of the reason I chose it for my Book of the Month box, plus it was Reese Witherspoon’s December book club pick…

How To Walk Away – Katherine Center

Like I’ve said many times before, 3 star books are very hard to review. I’m my opinion, 3 star books aren’t life-altering, but they aren’t terrible either. I’m rating How To Walk Away 3.5 stars because I enjoyed many aspects of this book, but disliked many as well. Margaret has what looks like the perfect life: she…

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine – Gail Honeyman

To be completely honest, I was not as impressed with Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine as I thought I would be. Based on the 4.3 Goodreads rating, fantastic reviews and Reese Witherspoon’s book club pick I expected to be fully blown out of the water. I’m not sure why but this book just didn’t do much for…
