We are the Brennans

Wow, I was not expecting to absolutely love this story. I’m iffy on family dramas especially when it’s due to just not talking to each other, but the way We Are the Brennans was written was amazing. Something happened five years ago that made Sunday Brennans leave for California. She left behind her four brothers,…

Pack up the Moon

Welp, this book wrecked me. The synopsis should really include a warning to the effect of, “Will make you cry the entire time but also won’t let you put the book down” Lauren and Josh have the perfect life. Both are thriving professionally and their love for each other is the stuff of fairy tales….

We are Inevitable

“Twenty-six letters and some punctuation marks and you have infinite words in infinite worlds.” -We Are Inevitable This is such a cute story! It’s short, sweet, and packed with lots of themes that are perfect for young adult readers. Aaron’s family has always owned Bluebird Bookstore, but when the inevitable happens, it’s now just Aaron…

A Good Day for Chardonnay

Sunshine Vicram is back! I have been so ready for A Good Day for Chardonnay, ever since I read A Bad Day for Sunshine (see my REVIEW HERE) last summer. I loved the characters, the witty banter, and the overall mystery that was tied into the first book, and book 2 did not disappoint. Sheriff…

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…

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…

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…

All Girls

Raise you’re hand if you went to an all girls school for high school! I did and honestly I think it really influenced my rating on this story. At it’s core All Girls is a coming of age story that takes place at a prestigious all girls boarding school. Set in 2015 but highly influenced…

The Removed

It’s been fifteen years since their teenage son Ray-Ray was killed in a police shooting and left an emptiness within the Echota family. Told from multiple POVs, Maria the mother, Sonja the older sister, Edgar the younger brother, and Tsala a Cherokee prophet; this is a story of grief and how it has shaped and…

The Fortunate Ones

The Fortunate Ones is not a book I would typically pick up, but Algonquin Books sent me a copy and I’m so glad they did. This is a fabulous book. This is the coming of age story of Charlie Boykin. Born to a teenage mom , he lives with his mom and aunt in poorer…
