Happy Wednesday and welcome to my newest round of book reviews! Unfortunately I totally fell off the wagon in February, but I’m so glad I was able to get back in action this month and read some new books! Just like in previous months, I’m giving my honest reviews of the books and whether or not I’d recommend them to you! For context, I tend to lean towards lighthearted “chic lit” but do enjoy a good mystery or thriller from time to time if the story is compelling! 🙂
I devoured this book! As I mentioned above, I’m a big fan of “chick lit” so this book was right in my wheelhouse. This tale follows Minty, a southern belle from Charleston who dreams of working in fashion in NYC, so after a big breakup she moves to the city to purse her dreams- but nothing is as easy for Minty in NYC as it was back in Charleston. The book follows her romantic & career trials and tribulations- and all the fun she has along the way!
An easy and quick read- you will fly thought this book! I read it cover to cover on my last plane ride to New York, but think it’s also the perfect beach read! Light, fluffy and still a fun story- you’ll love it 🙂 BONUS: Tinsley Mortimer (the author) will be on this season of the real Housewives of NYC!
Grab the tissues friends, you will need them handy for this one! This book is written through the eyes of the dog, and goodness it is just the sweetest. You get to see the feelings & journeys that our dogs go on (and their unconditional love for us)! It’s hard to say too much without giving the story away- so I will just say that I really enjoyed this book (even if I did SOB reading it!) 🙂
Another light-hearted read, in this book we meet Quinn, who left her fiancee at the alter after finding out he was cheating (his brother tips her off) and she runs off with his brother! 10 years later, she is single and stuck in the rut of her daily errands and small town life. Once day, out of the blue, her fiancee and his brother return to town and the real story begins!
I will be honest, it took me about 100 pages to get into this story (the start was pretty slow), but once it really began moving I was into it! I do think some of the storylines could have been a little better developed, but I liked how the author really tackled Quinn’s feelings about her first big love and the hot/cold emotions she battled even after learning of his cheating. As a girl’s who’s been in a similar situation so many of her thoughts and feelings resonated with me and made the story take on a deeper meaning. This is definitely a great beach read!
