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…

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…

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…

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…
