April Wrap Up

Y’all, I know I say this all the time, but the year is flying by. I missed out on posting my March Wrap Up, as it has just been a completely crazy few months. We’re staring to get out of the house more now that we’re vaccinated. It’s been great but also how did we…

May 2021 Book of the Month

Out of the nine books released this month (five main picks and four add-on’s) I only predicted two correctly. I’m actually fairly surprised by this month’s offerings with two of the picks actually having not been on my radar. This month’s theme seemed to be contemporary fiction with over half (yes I’m including the YA…

A Special Place for Women

Laura Hankin’s debut novel Happy and You Know It (my review is HERE)was our June pick for the Let’s Read Rant & Repeat bookclub. Last year when we read it, Jordan and I, actually got to sit down and chat with Hankin, and honestly she’s a dream to speak with. Personally, knowing that an author…

Paper & Blood

If you read my review of Ink & Sigil, the first book in this series, you’ll know I loved this series and book 2 did not disappoint. See my review for Ink & Sigil HERE. In Paper& Blood, Al MacBharrais is back along with Buck Foi (a whiskey obsessed hobgoblin), Gladys Who Has Seen Some…

People We Meet on Vacation

Last year Emily Henry’s release adult targeted book, Beach Read, was a favorite summer read for me and you can see my review for it HERE. Written in a similar style People We Meet on Vacation is more optimistic than it’s predecessor Beach Read which while it was a contemporary romance, it dived into some…

May 2021 Most Anticipated

I don’t know about everyone else, but April flew by for me. After so many months of staying home, this was the first month that events started to take place again for us. We had a wedding, some bridal shower’s, and of course Easter events to attend to. I also received my second COVID vaccine…

Local Woman Missing

This was my very first book by Mary Kubica and it’s definitely made me want to go back and read all her other books. Local Woman Missing is perfect for True Crime lovers, even though this is a fictional mystery, there were quite a few incidents that mirrored true stories. The story takes place post…

Hana Khan Carries On

Hana Khan Carries On is Uzma Jalaluddin’s sophomore novel. Set in Toronto, this book is sweet, fun, and tackles the hard topic of racism. Jalaluddin also does a fabulous job of depicting the differences between many of the South Asian cultures. In this You’ve Got Mail modern retelling, Hana Khan is a 24 year old…
