Shadows of Pecan Hollow

As a good Texas girl, I love books set in Texas! I’m so happy one of my favorite debut reads this year happened to be set in Texas! Shadows of Pecan Hollow is set in 1970-90s Texas, and is a wonderful story about a fierce woman and the partner-in-crime she can’t escape. This historical fiction/…

Now is Not the Time to Panic

“The edge is a shantytown filled with gold seekers, we are the new fugitives, and the law is skinny with hunger for us.” I love Kevin Wilson’s writing. If you have never read one of his books just know that ‘Quirky’ is the best way to describe them. I always find his books perfect to…

This book may be close to 500 pages but I still managed to binge it in 24 hour. While not entirely what I was expecting, this genre-defying book is easily a five star read! Harriett, recently divorced and let go from her advertising job, hasn’t been seen in a month. Her house especially her garden,…

Book Lovers

My third book by Emily Henry in 3 years and this is by far my favorite one! Remember Sandra Bullocks character in The Proposal? Yea that’s Nora. Uber successful and cutthroat literary agent. Her favorite things include her beloved Peloton and getting the best deals for her clients. Known as The Shark, Libby hasn’t taken…

One Italian Summer

I read Rebecca Serle’s The Dinner List a few years ago when it was a Book of the Month pick and I loved it. Then In Five Years came out and once again, Serle was able to toy with my emotions once again. At this point she’s an auto-buy author for me and if you…
