Books I’ve Read Lately

If it feels like forever since I’ve shared a book review- it’s because it has been! Life hasn’t left much time to read lately, but over the past few months I’ve managed to get a few in and have several book reviews to share with y’all! Hopefully in the coming months I’ll be able to make some more time to read and have more reviews to share with y’all!

I Owe You One (Sophie Kinsella) || 4.0 out of 5.0

Fixie Farr is living our her late father’s motto of “family first” by helping to run the family’s housewares store. One day on a coffee run a stranger asks her to watch his computer & while doing so she saves it from disaster. He scribbles an IOU on a coffee sleeve before running off. What follows are a series of favors and debts between the two as Fixie learns to balance her new life and go after what she loves the most.

My Thoughts:

Absolutely adorable! A true chic lit book, it’s a light easy ready that just leaves you feeling good & happy. I will say there were a few times I got super frustrated with Fixie for not standing up for herself more and for letting life “happen” to her with taking charge of her own fate. But this is still a charming tale of love and will keep you guessing how it all ends!

One Day in December (Josie Silver) || 5.0 out of 5.0

Laurie isn’t quite sure that love at first sight is a real thing when one snowy day in December she looks out the bus window and locks eyes with a handsome stranger and knows instantly that he is “the one.” She is convinced that they will meet again and spends the next year searching for him around every corner.

The following Christmas her best friend, Sarah, giddily introduces Laurie to her new boyfriend-Jack- the handsome man from the bus stop. The book follows the next 10 years of their friendships, the love the loss the struggles, the hurt and the triumph of the heart.

My Thoughts: I cannot even begin to tell y’all how much I loved this book!! It’s so much more than your standard chic lit and has so much heart. I tore through this book from cover to cover and loved every second of this story! Just when you think you’ve figured out how the story will end- it twists again (in the best way). I highly recommend this one!

The Kept Woman (Karin Slaughter) || 3.5 out of 5.0

When investigator Will Trent shows up to an abandoned construction site, he comes across a murder victim who also happens to be an ex-cop. When it’s revealed that there is a second victim from the site who fled, a whole mystery will begin to unravel – and one that leads him straight to his past and a woman he once loved. But is there more to this story than meets the eye?

My Thoughts: After my last disastrous run-in with Karin Slaughter I decided to give her one more chance (since so many of y’all love her) but I was once again disappointed. I find that her books are too graphic/gruesome and hard for me to read in parts which I don’t enjoy! But I know I’m in the minority here!

The Wife Between Us (Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen) || 4.0 out of 5.0

My Thoughts: It’s hard to even describe the plot of this book so I’m going to dive into my review! This is a book that you think you will have figured out, and know exactly what’s happening, when all of a sudden once sentence shifts your whole perspective on the story! This was super interesting, a page-turner, and I just had to know how it ended!
