Winter Update

So many books, so little time! This crazy winter has had me reading non-stop! Now that I can just download books instead of heading out to a bookstore, my reading addiction is on an entirely different level!

Since I've gotten a little behind in my blogging (because I've been reading), I'm going to knock them all out in one post! Here's what I have been reading this winter:

You Are Enough by Mandy Hale

Love her books! She has an honest, spiritual way of communicating her words to paper. I've read all four of hew books & none have disappointed! No matter what stage you are in in your life, you will relate to Hale's writings.

Every Breath

by Nicholas Sparks

Is there a Nicholas Sparks book you don't love? Just as with his past releases, this one will have you crying, laughing and staying up late to finish it. It sucked me in and I finished it in just a couple days. Hoping for a movie in the near future!

The Hypnotist's Love Story

by Liane Moriarty

One of my top five favorite authors! Wasn't necessarily one of my favorite works of hers, but it was a good book nonetheless. If you haven't checked her out yet, Liane Moriarty is the author of "Big Little Lies" which is now a hit show on HBO!

The Perfect Neighbors

by Rachel Sargeant

Loved, loved, loved this one! A bit predictable, but I love a good thriller and couldn't put this one down. Leave the lights on if you stay up reading late!

You by Caroline Kepnes

Have had this book in my queue forever. Read it in two nights. Then started the show on Lifetime and was completely absorbed. Definitely a five-star recommendation! If you love a good thriller, you won't be able to put this down!

Rescue by Anita Shreve

Devastated by her passing, I have read every book I can get my hands on by Anita Shreve. From the time I read "The Pilot's Wife" and watched the subsequent movie, I have been hooked by everything she has written. This book was no different. Shreve's writing immerses you with its vivid storytelling and leaves you wanting more.

The House of Gucci

by Sara Gay Forden

Could. Not. Put. This. Book. Down. I loved the entanglement of fashion, Italian history and thrilling mystery that set this book apart from so many others I have read. If you have any interest in the Gucci brand or just a good murder mystery in general, pick up this book!

The Other Woman by Sandie Jones

Reese's Bookclub? Count me in! She makes excellent choices on all of her monthly picks and I can't get enough. This one was full of twists and turns until the end! A man. His fiancee. And his mother. The perfect combination. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good thriller.

Have a Little Faith

by Mitch Albom

Just like Nicholas Sparks, how can you not love Mitch Albom? Unlike his past books, "Have a Little Faith" is a true tale straight from Albom's life. Based on the values of faith, hope and love in every day life, this book also had me laughing, crying and smiling the entire way through. If you enjoyed Albom's past works, make sure to pick this one up as well.

The Marriage Lie

by Kimberly Belle

Amazing thriller ride! Couldn't put this one down for two days and when I did I couldn't believe the ending! The twists and turns were breathtaking. The plots and characters kept me roped in until the end. If you like a good thriller, pick this one up on your next trip to the bookstore.

Bittersweet by

Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

This one was a New York Times Bestseller for a reason. A dark, twisted tale that took you in from page one. While it was set in present day, the book made you feel as if you were in a time period in the past. The full story unfolded like a dark thundercloud on a hot summer's day.

A Discovery of Witches

by Deborah Harkness

So far, my favorite book of 2019! This book came out eight years ago, but is now a hit show on the Sundance Channel. A trilogy with a fourth book recently added, this series is "Twilight" for adults. The mysteries of witches, daemons and vampires are all addressed in this bestselling thriller that I wasn't able to put down until the last page!
