The Summer Guests

You can’t get a better summer read than a novel by Mary Alice Monroe. A story that exudes southern hospitality, The Summer Guests makes you feel instantly at home. For a little change in scenery, this story only has a few snippets of the Isle of Palms (and a familiar character). This time, we’re trading... Continue Reading →


The Scent Keeper

I went in blind when deciding to read The Scent Keeper and I’m so glad I did. As it began on this remote island with a secretive machine that captures scents and stories of mermaids and fairytales, I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into, but I was hooked. Where was this story going... Continue Reading →

The Favorite Daughter

Do you have an author you read who's writing ability just astounds you? Kaira Rouda is one of those authors for me. Her talent for writing truly unhinged people sucks me in every time. She gets in your head. I mean, man, Kaira Rouda writes f*cked up people really, really well. I’m over here reading... Continue Reading →

Drawing Home

Jamie Brenner has had a hold on me since last year’s release, The Husband Hour. She has this incredible writing style that sucks you in, pulls at your heart, and makes you a part of whomever she is writing about. Drawing Home is no different. There’s Emma. A young, hardworking mom with pride who has... Continue Reading →

The Overdue Life of Amy Byler

I would like to say immediately that I absolutely adored The Overdue Life of Amy Byler. Full stop. Not only is Amy relatable to every woman who does nothing for herself and everything for everyone else, the “momspringa” made me LAUGH. OUT. LOUD. Coming from Ohio and living in PA, I am no stranger to... Continue Reading →

The Mother-in-law

I honestly have never been disappointed by a book from the amazing Sally Hepworth. I used to dream of reviewing a book of hers and now... I do. How freaking cool is that?? Her writing has always been on point and The Mother-in-law is no different. There has always been an...awkwardness between Diana and Lucy.... Continue Reading →

The Girl He Used to Know

Have you ever read a book and needed to write about it immediately? I had to with this one. I absolutely adored the characters and the writing. Annika, the main character, presumably on the spectrum, was reminiscent (to me anyway) of Eleanor Oliphant, even Sara from The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend. I loved those... Continue Reading →

The Things We Cannot Say

Look, I'm really bad at keeping up with this blog, I know that. But sometimes, there is a book you really loved and you need to shout it from every platform rooftop you have at your fingertips because everyone must read it. So that's what I'm doing. And yes, it's all over Facebook, Instagram, and... Continue Reading →

I’m Fine and Neither Are You

How amazing is that title? Probably one of my favorites of all time. Well, it turns out, the grass isn’t always greener and the truth doesn’t always set you free. Or does it? Penelope is fine. Everything is fine. Jenny is her BFF, their kids play together, their marriages are grand, and life is how... Continue Reading →
