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…

Tell Me Three Things – Julie Buxbaum

My first Young Adult book of the year goes to Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum. It’s been on my list for quite some time now, as I remember seeing it among the shelves of a local bookstore last year and distinctly remember I liked the cover. Heart-shaped waffles, how cute! This book is so much…

2020’s Most Anticipated Reads

A new year means new exhilarating reads that saturate your email, Instagram, and Goodreads feed! I’ve asked some bookish friends, consulted my favorite book blogs, and done a bit of research to build my own comprehensive “2020’s Most Anticipated Reads” list, so you don’t have to! This list is pretty inclusive with books ranging from…

It Ends With Us – Colleen Hoover

– follow me on Goodreads! –  After reading Verity by Colleen Hoover, I knew It Ends With Us would be just as good. Side note: if you haven’t read Verity, stop what you’re doing and go read this book (and then come back to this review!). Seriously. Your mind will be blown, without a doubt. You can read all about what…

The World That We Knew – Alice Hoffman

– follow me on Instagram + Goodreads! –  I was very lucky to have been given the opportunity to review Alice Hoffman’s newest upcoming release, The World That We Knew, prior to its release date*. When this fun surprise showed up in my mail box, my first reaction was major heart eyes at the cover. Pictures truly…
