Lucky Broken Girl – Ruth Behar

In an effort to expand my horizons and diversify the types of books I read, I grabbed Lucky Broken Girl from the library and loved it! This book is geared for young readers but I loved the messages the reader can take away. This book is an #OwnVoices story, which means it’s written by an…

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. …

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…

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…

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…
