Recent Reads

I have been putting my Kindle TO WORK lately. 

My goal was 15 books this year... we're four months in and I've read nine. So I say things are looking pretty good to accomplish that bad boy. I always love hearing what others are reading and finding some new good reads (along with which ones to stay away from...), so here are mine!


IT ENDS WITH US: a powerful story of love loss, definitely not just another romance novel.

A HUNDRED SUMMERS: go back in time to 1938 as a hurricane and other 'social' storms brew on the east coast.

CANCEL THE WEDDING: Olivia goes to Georgia to scatter her mothers ashes and uncover her secret past life. Ehh.

THE NIGHTINGALE: probably the best book I've ever read. A heartbreaking tale of two French sisters during WWII. 

THE MAGNOLIA STORY: because it's Chip and Joanna - duh. Read this. It's beyond good.

THE SECRETS OF MIDWIVES: three generations of midwives tales all run together. 

TRULY MADLY GUILTY: Trying to figure out what happens at the BBQ will keep you on your toes.

THE THINGS WE KEEP: Imagine being diagnosed with Alzheimers at age 38 and your family decides to commit you...

WHERE'D YOU GO BERNADETTE: Such a random story. I could never get totally into it.

Next up -- I've got THIS ONE on deck. Anyone read it?

  2. I really liked Night Circus! And I just finished The Magnolia Story today and loved it way more than I thought I would! I shouldn't be surprised because it's Chip and Joanna and they can do no wrong.

  8. I absolutely loved The Nightingale!!! Truly Madly Guilty was my least favorite Moriarty book. Magnolia Story was so cute! There is an antique shop near my house that sales her Magnolia furniture and I want some so bad! I really loved The Things We Keep too. I have the biggest fear of Alz disease! I have Where'd You Go Bernadette and It Ends With Us on my to read list.

  9. I think The Night Circus is on my reading list, so I can't wait to hear what you think. So many good books! The Nightingale is incredible, loved It Ends With Us, and the Magnolia Story was inspiring.

  12. The Nightingale was absolutely the best book I have read!! I don't like historical books all that much, but this one was so phenomenal! I had it on audiobook and could not wait to drive so I could hear more! Adding It Ends With Us to my list!

  13. I'm glad to see you felt the same way about Where'd You Go Bernadette. I actually never finished it because I just couldn't get into it either. I have Truly, Madly Guilty on my list and I'm adding The Nightingale!
