Silver Sparrow – Tayari Jones

You might recognize Tayari Jones from her recent 2018 publication of An American Marriage. Silver Sparrow isn’t a new release (2011) but I’m glad I stumbled upon this title. This book will capture you from the first sentence: “My father, James Witherspoon, is a bigamist”. The book centers around four women and the shared man they all have…

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!

Based around the true story of Helen Gurley Brown, Cosmopolitan magazine’s first female editor-in-chief, Park Avenue…

Bea, a widow whom lives off her social security check in a trailer, has been recently scammed into losing every penny…

When We Believed In Mermaids – Barbara O’Neal

When We Believed In Mermaids was a Kindle Unlimited pick and those books are always hit or miss as they aren’t usually your newly released, bestseller-type books. However, after seeing a 4.2 rating with nearly 52,000 reviews on Goodreads I decided to give it a go! I am so glad I did because this book truly…
