The Fourteenth of September

The Fourteenth of September was eye opening, educational, and riveting. 


Rapid Falls

I’ve never read a book that grows darker and darker as gradually and seamlessly as Rapid Falls. Cowie magnificently and immediately captivates you with the intertwining stories of Cara and Anna- sisters both devastated by a tragedy in their past. As the dual timelines lead you to the truth, you can’t help but wonder- who... Continue Reading →

My favorite Kristin Hannah book

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just love Kristin Hannah so darn much!

After reading The Nightingale and The Great Alone and absolutely falling in love, Kristin Hannah became my favorite author. And I’m now on a mission to read all of her books. Home Front happened to be the next one available at the library and in typical Kristin Hannah fashion, it was wonderful!

Home Front is set in 2005 and is about Joleen, a wife and mother of two daughters, who is a helicopter pilot in the National Guard. Her marriage is crumbling. Her husband, a workaholic, is regularly absent from family activities and events. And he doesn’t particularly agree with her participation in the military. When Joleen is unexpectedly deployed to Iraq, it could not be worse timing. Will her husband be able to fulfill the role of “Mr. Mom” when…

Girls on the Line

  This review is a few days late and for that, I apologize. Life, ya know? Released the 6th, grab this book NOW. So, when I first started this book I thought, “Ruby has gumption” and wondered if there was a way we could bring that word back (honestly, it’s a gem). And low and... Continue Reading →

The Man She Married

Cathy Lamb has this special talent of weaving poignant stories with lovable, sometimes quirky, characters. The Man She Married has a cast of unbelievably wonderful people. She write them so real, you wish you could be friends with them, too. They all have their faults, their weaknesses, but oh, do they have heart and care... Continue Reading →

Out October 23rd!

I think it’s only fair to disclose before this review that I’m a complete and utter Friends freak! My cat’s name is Chandler, my Roomba-knock-off vaccum’s name is Gunther, I rescued a cat and named her Phoebe, I have the Friends picture frame that I hung over my apartment’s peephole, and I have watched all of the seasons too many times to count. I make references on the regular and expect that everybody around me is going to *get* them (they usually don’t…). You get the point.

Okay, back to the review. How could I give any book about Friends anything less than 5 stars? Honestly. But low and behold, this books stands on its own merits! I can truly give it 5 stars because it’s just a great…

Parenting is Hard. Especially For These Characters.

This month, every book I have read so far has had parenting involved somehow. I didn't plan it that way. Around book 4, I just happened to notice a theme. Whether it be literary fiction, a domestic thriller, or an amazing beach read- all involved parents or being parents at some point in the book,... Continue Reading →

Busy Moms Can Read Too

Aside from book recommendations, the thing I get asked the most is, "How do you find the time to read so much?" I am a working mom and wife. I work 40 hours a week. Then the mom stuff comes after that and of course, there's the weekends. It never ends. I have two girls,... Continue Reading →

April & May & Reviews. Oh my!

This is why I hesitated to start a blog. I'm no good at it. These past couple months I was either too busy to write or couldn't think of anything to write about. I mean, I could in all honesty just share my book reviews I suppose. More on that later. I actually read a... Continue Reading →
