Where The Forest Meets The Stars – Glendy Vanderah

This book. I am speechless; truly. Where The Forest Meets The Stars completely took my breath away and is without a doubt the best book I’ve read in 2020. I adored this book so very much and for such different reasons. I’m going to try to keep the synopsis short and explain why it captured my heart…

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…

Karolina’s Twins – Ronald H. Balson

  Historical fiction, you truly have my heart. 3.5 stars rounded up for Karolina’s Twins because I just love historical fiction that much.

Verity – Colleen Hoover

– follow me on Instagram + Goodreads! –  After seeing Verity all over Instagram, I finally ordered it on Amazon (it is independently published therefore not sold in bookstores) and now that I’ve finished, I’m really kicking myself that I didn’t read this sooner. WHAT in the world is this book?? I devoured this book in one…

Historical Fiction Is Where It’s At

– follow me on Instagram + Goodreads –  Three years ago I read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah and my life was forever changed. Since then, my love for historical fiction with a focus on WWII and the Holocaust has only grown deeper with each book I read. 9 times out of 10, I reach for historical…

My Tried and True – The Great Believers

– follow me on Instagram + Goodreads –  Every time I am asked to recommend a book, I immediately spew out THE GREAT BELIEVERS without a second of hesitation. A book that’s made my hysterically cry, daydream about more than I’d like to admit, and lent out more times than I can count sure deserves…
