Malibu Rising

I adore Taylor Jenkin Reid’s book The Seven Husband’s of Evelyn Hugo. It’s one of my all time favorite and most recommended reads. When Daisy Jones and the Six came out in 2019, I jumped to get my hands on a copy, and while it was a fun read it was never a favorite of…

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…

Her Dark Lies

Claire is finally where she wants to be and is soon to be married to non other than Jack Comptom, a member of one of the wealthiest families in the world. Their exclusive marriage is to take place on the Comptom family’s Italian island. Off the bat things start to go haywire and the family…

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…

When the Stars Go Dark

It’s no secret that Paula McLain is a masterful author. Her books always seem to completely captive me and her newest release When the Stars Go Dark is no exception. Just like one of my recent reads What Comes After, at the heart of this story it is a mystery. There is a detective and…

Lost, Found, & Forever

Raise you’re hand if you’re a dog person! Me, I am! In case you didn’t notice based on the pictures of my pupper all over Speaking Of. Lost, Found, and Forever is just the book for all my dog lovers. This not so typical romance follows dog stop owner Justine and her rescue pup Spencer….

What Comes After

Firstly, this is categories as a Mystery/Thriller, and I just want to clarify that while at it’s core this is a murder mystery, it’s more the motive behind the murder than a whodunnit. I also would never categorize this book as a Thriller. Going into this book with expectations of a fast paced, thriller will…
