June Book Reviews

Hip hip hooray- it’s (finally) book review day!! Y’all I’m almost embarrassed about how long it’s taken me to get my next round of book reviews up. When life gets busy, reading is definitely one of the first things to fall by the wayside, but now that I am traveling a bunch for work I have lots of time to read on planes and I have SO many good books to share with you!! Seriously y’all, grab your Kindle because you are going to want to add these to your list asap!

Southernmost || 4.0 out of 5.0

If you’ve got a beach vacation coming up, pack this book because it is the perfect beachy read! This is the sequel to Southern Solstice (another great vacation read that I reviewed previously and loved) and follows Kayla Carter who has packed up her life & moved to Charleston at the demand of her ex-fiancee Jackson. When she gets to Charleston she realizes that Jackson is a hot mess and his life is in shambles and it is up to her to get a job and support their 7 year old daughter. She emerges herself in the culinary scene and learns the ups and downs of Charleston society. But she is keeping a huge secret that threatens to destroy her chance at a happy ending before it even begins…

This isn’t the deepest book and could explore more character development, but it’s fun and light and will leave you feeling happy- and sometimes that’s just the kind of book I need!

The Marriage Lie || 5.0 out of 5.0

Two words: Page. Turner!! I read this entire book in less than 3 hours because I could not put it down! Iris and Will have just celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary when Will sets off on a business trip to Florida. A few hours later, a plane bound for Seattle crashes in a field… and Will is one of the passengers. What was Will doing on the plane? And what other secrets was he keeping from Iris? Iris sets off to uncover the truth and how well do we know the people we love?

I absolutely cannot rave about this book enough!! I’ve recommended it to several gals & every single one has LOVED it too! It is interesting and exciting and thrilling but not scary (which I really appreciate)! Y’all will love this one!

Pretty Girls || 3.0 out of 5.0

Claire & Lydia’s sister Julia disappeared when they were young and the repercussions of her disappearance have rippled through their family every since. The two sisters haven’t spoken in years when Claire’s husband is killed. Almost two centuries apart and somehow the disappearance and murder are connected. Claire and Lydia must begin to repair their broken relationship in a race against time to figure out the twisted truth.

Ugh.. this book had SO much potential in the plot, but it just feel short for me. Let me warn you: it is the most twisted, gruesome, violent book I’ve ever read and it is DISTURBING on so many levels! By the time it got fully twisted I was far enough in that I kept going to the end, but I am still disturbed by the imagery described in this book. It is not for the faint of heart!

How To Walk Away || 5.0 out of 5.0

I just read this book on the way home from NYC and I couldn’t wait to share it with y’all! Margaret is about to get the future she always dreamed of- she just graduated with her MBA, is starting an amazing new job, and has just gotten engaged to her boyfriend Chip when a tragic accident takes it all from her in a second. When she wakes up in the hospital she realizes everything has changed and must put back together the pieces of her life while overcoming a deep family secret, an estranged relationship with her sister, & Chip wallowing in self-pity. Add her cold & harsh therapist, Ian, on top of it and nothing is as it was! But as she fights to move forward Margaret learns that there are all kinds of happy endings- and they can all lead to something great.

How many ways can I say “I loved this book” and “it was amazing?!!” Because those are the words that best describe this novel! I cried, I mourned, I cheered- this story is full of all the feels. Margaret is so relatable and you will find yourself putting yourself in her situation and wondering how you would respond- and then cheering her on as she fights for her happy ending. 100% you need to read this book!


Let me know what I need to download next- I’m definitely hoping to keep this reading streak up next month too! I’d love your recommendations!
