What She's Reading Now

Short and Sweet: What She's Reading Now

For Book Club: Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann
Tigers in Red Weather: A Novel
2 women in the 1950s, struggling in their roles as housewives and mothers. Lots of descriptions about the fashion and lifestyle of that era, which I love. Lots of love, relationships, struggles. Good so far! 
Average 3.5 star rating on Good Reads.

In the car: 
Heartbroken By Lisa Unger
Heartbroken
Description: Heartbroken is a tense, mesmerizing novel about the limits of dysfunctional families, of an island haunted by dark memories and restless ghosts, and of the all-too-real demons we must battle.  Wonderfully suspenseful, exquisitely crafted, and written with raw, emotional power, this is Lisa Unger at her very best. Average 3.5 rating on Good Reads.

Next Up:
Another Piece of My  Heart
By: Jane Green
Another Piece of My Heart
From Good Reads: From the New York Times bestselling author of JEMIMA J, and THE BEACH HOUSE, comes Jane Green’s most emotional and powerful novel yet: a story that explores the complications of a woman marrying into a ready-made family, and the true meaning of motherhood. 
Average 3.65 rating on Good Reads
Why I chose it: Jane Green is like Jennifer Weiner to me, they are great go to authors that I know I will enjoy without even reading the back cover.

  2. I've just added these to my "to-read" list on Good Reads. At the moment I'm reading "House Rules" by Jodi Picoult. I can't put it down. Before that, I read "Night Road" by Kristin Hannah.

  3. Sigh. I need to read more. Lots more. I also just realized that I really do judge (actual) books by their cover. Oops.

  4. I NEED to get back into reading. Every time I start up again I realize how desperately I've missed it! I am always wishing I could commute by train or bus so I could read during the commute instead of driving. I know they have books on tape but I don't like them because I get weirded out when I can't imagine characters speaking in the voices I give them... Is that weird?! I loved Jemima J when I read it years ago... When I get through the books I have waiting for me on my Nook I'm going to have to start going through your reading list for preapproved reads ;)

Book Review: Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

"When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens."

My review of Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.


This book will definitely be on my best of 2018 reading list!

This slow and steady escape in to the marshlands of the North Carolina coast in the 1960s is indulgent and memorizing. Owens takes you on two adventures: one is trying to solve the murder of a young man whose body was found at the bottom of a fire tower with no clues on how he died.

The other is the life of Kya Clark, a young girl left behind by her family and raising herself completely alone. Her skill, bravery and acute attention to the natural world that surrounds her kept my attention. Her marsh home is the only thing that she trusts and when one young man shows her compassion by visiting her and teaching her how to read, she begins to see a side of life and love that she never knew existed. As she grows up, Kya becomes one with the …

Book Review: The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand

The best book of the summer! 


Why I loved it: The setting of Nantucket is impeccably described. I could smell the salty sea air, I could taste the lobster rolls and I could hear the wave tides coming in. I loved the cast of characters. They are a motley crew of loveable and hateable characters, people I could picture being friends with and others I wanted to shove. They were introduced quickly but the fact that you get to read various points of views make the story line easy to follow. I could picture them so clearly in my mind. 
It's a roller coaster of a novel- first you think a young couple is in love and on the verge of happily ever after. They are rich, talented and envied. Hundreds of people are coming to their lavish wedding and they are the envy of everyone around them. And then there is a tragedy: the bride finds her maid of honor dead on the beach, the morning of her wedding. 
Everything starts to unravel after that point. Secrets that you WILL NOT see coming reveal the…

The Start of My 2019 Reading List

It's going to be hard to beat 2018's reading list but here is a great start! Here are just a few of the books that will be on my reading list at the beginning of this year! 




Elsey Come Home by Susan Conley, Out January 15, AA Knopf 

From the widely praised author of Paris Was the Place–a shattering new novel that bravely delves into the darkest corners of addiction, marriage, and motherhood. 



The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin, Out February 2, William Morrow 
It begins in a big yellow house with a funeral, an iron poker, and a brief variation forever known as the Pause: a free and feral summer in a middle-class Connecticut town. Caught between the predictable life they once led and an uncertain future that stretches before them, the Skinner siblings—fierce Renee, sensitive Caroline, golden boy Joe and watchful Fiona—emerge from the Pause staunchly loyal and deeply connected. Two decades later, the siblings find themselves once again confronted with a family crisis that tests the …
