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…

Allie and Bea – Catherine Ryan Hyde

Allie and Bea was such a refreshing read! I loved getting to know both characters and the relationship between the two of them was so heartwarming to see develop over the course of the story. Bea, a widow whom lives off her social security check in a trailer, has been recently scammed into losing every penny…

Stuck Inside? A Book Nerd’s Dream!

I know most of the country is under lock down, either state-mandated or by personal choice. Times are weird and confusing right now; with so much uncertainty it’s easy to become overwhelmed with all of the information being dumped into our laps. I’ve found that I need to physically put my phone away or turn…

You Were There Too – Colleen Oakley

(are we friends on Goodreads?!) I’ve been teetering between a 3 and 4 star rating for You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley. I truly did enjoy this book and it was a solid 3.5/4 stars for me up until the very end, which I felt was incessantly rushed and kind of out of left field. With…

February Wrap Up

It’s pretty crazy that it’s already March! 2020 is flying by and the reality that we get married next month is really sinking in. As planning is dwindling, I’ve been able to focus more time on my reading life which has been so productive and fulfilling. They say February is the month of love – I for…

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. The writing itself was average but any time there is a touching story of a Holocaust survivor, I will always base my rating off of that regardless if the writing is sub-par. Loosely…

The Grace Year – Kim Liggett

I finished The Grace Year a few days ago and have been trying to collect my thoughts on this book. I’ve been scouring Goodreads and reviews to read others’ thoughts and compare to my own interpretation (yes, this is what I do in my spare time LOL). I’m honestly struggling to find the words to…

The Mother-In-Law – Sally Hepworth

I was feeling frisky and wanted to read a mystery, which doesn’t happen too often. I’ve seen this book recommended several places online and when it became available at my library, I snagged it up and read it in just 2 days! Lucy’s relationship with her mother-in-law, Diana, is a bit complicated. She lost her…
