I Owe You One  by Sophie Kinsella

I Owe You One is another winner from bestselling author (and personal favorite of mine), Sophie Kinsella! I absolutely adored this book. I saw a little of myself within Fixie, connected with her character on a deep level, and loved the changes that happened in her life in the end. I was truly rooting for Fixie the whole way through and loved watching her progress from being a girl everyone walked all over to a woman who takes charge. If you are a fan of Sophie Kinsella and have been reading her books since the beginning (like I have) then you will notice that this is a classic Kinsella novel. The author has a certain sparkle within her novels and it certainly hasn’t been dimmed! […]

Save the Date by Mary Kay Andrews

Mary Kay Andrews has been one of my favorite authors since I began reading adult books. This is simply because each of her books have a unique plot and her writing style is flawless. Even more, her novels exude southern charm at it’s finest, which is something I really love. With that being said, I felt no different when reading Save the Date and I adored this book to pieces. Cara, the heroine of the story, felt like a close friend of mine and when I finished the story I was pretty sad to see her go. The hero Jack was just as charming as Cara, and seeing the two go through their ups and downs in order to get to their HEA was delightful. […]

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

MY THOUGHTS This book is so different than the authors previous books. What I liked about her other books; Big Little Lies, The Husband’s Secret, and Truly Madly Guilty, is the fact that she was able to weave a mundane issue into something extravagant. Nine Perfect Strangers barely fell within this pattern though and I found myself somewhat disappointed. One of the main things I kept thinking to myself while reading is “what’s the point of the book”. It seemed to wander aimlessly and felt more like a character study than a book with a rich and interesting plot. Admittedly, when I got to the end I did find the plot interesting (you know, when you look back AFTER you finally gain an understanding of […]

The Sunshine Sisters by Jane Green

The Sunshine Sisters by Jane Green

The Sunshine Sisters by Jane Green is a phenomenal novel about the complexities of families. Green dives very deep in this one and I found it to be a moving novel with down to earth and lifelike characters. What I also liked about this novel is the fact that I was hooked to the pages. Sure, a lot of books are catchy and grasp their readers attention from beginning to end, but somehow, this one was different. I was EXCITED to read it. I wanted to pick up the book even when I was busy (summer is such a busy time of year in my life), and I absolutely did NOT want to put it down. I was enthralled in the lives of these characters […]

The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews

The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews

This is the perfect beach read! Mary Kay Andrews has the unique ability to hook her readers into her stories from the get-go and this is no different with her newest novel, The Weekenders! Having read nearly all of her books, I knew when I saw this one that I had to read it. And I am so glad that I did because I absolutely loved this book. It has quite a bit of drama, mystery, and intrigue, but all of this is mixed together gives you a story that will keep you interested all the way through. This book is about 454 pages. Normally, with this amount of pages I would need a few days to read it. But because I was so enthralled […]
