The Four Winds #BookReview

The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah My rating: 5 of 5 stars Here’s the thing. I can tell a lot of research went into this book. I live in West Texas and remember experiencing my first dust storm. Everyone around me was so calm and indifferent like it was normal. I, on the other hand, […]

The Wife Upstairs #BookReview

The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins My rating: 3 of 5 stars 3.5 starsNot a whole lot to say about this one. I feel like I was into the story as I was reading it. It was good, but the end was a bit underwhelming and anticlimactic for me. There were pieces of the puzzle […]

The Book of Two Ways #BookReview

The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult My rating: 5 of 5 stars Amazing. Lots to unpack on this one. Ancient Egypt. Death. Physics. Past, present, future. Impossible choices. Multi universes. Choices. Picoult writes in this book that we do not make our choices; our choices make us. How do you know you’ve made […]

The Push #BookReview

The Push by Ashley Audrain My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book was dark and mesmerizing. Whatever questions I had were answered in the final sentence. As someone with two psychology degrees, I kept thinking a lot of the way through this book about self-fulfilling prophecy. Post-partum depression, attachment styles and how they develop. […]

The Midnight Library #BookReview

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was a book I thought I would like, that turned out to be probably not at all what I was expecting, but I ended up liking it even more. This book is one that has this alternate reality/Schroedinger’s cat/multi-verse theme, but with […]

Troubles In Paradise #BookReview

Troubles in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand My rating: 5 of 5 stars Well, all my questions were answered, but now I’m really, really sad this series is over. This series has been such a roller-coaster of drama, and I feel like all the characters are family. They all have distinctive personalities and issues, and they […]

He Started It

He Started It by Samantha Downing My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was disturbing on so many levels. This is beyond family dysfunction. Wow. This book was extremely good at creating intrigue. It was packed with personality, and several times had me shocked by twists. Other times is was downright creepy. My book club […]

Anxious People

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman My rating: 5 of 5 stars Fredrik Backman has done it again. You know that saying about being kind because everyone is fighting an invisible battle we know nothing about? It’s like this book took that phrase and turned it into a really awesome, really detailed and in depth story. […]

The Three Mrs. Wrights

The Three Mrs. Wrights by Linda Keir My rating: 5 of 5 stars Oh my, what a story! Three women, one man who is impossibly good at lying. This book sucked me right in and I devoured every word. I liked all the women. I get why they each wanted to believe his ridiculous lies. […]

A Borrowed Life

A Borrowed Life by Kerry Anne King My rating: 4 of 5 stars Boy, talk about a sad state of affairs. I can see this book being a little controversial because our main character is a pious, submissive, and dutiful preacher’s wife, and when her oppressive husband and his strict and old-fashioned views of marriage […]
