The Perfect Couple | Elin Hilderbrand

A co-worker recommended this book to me recently and I figured I‘d give it a try! I got it from the library since it‘s the first Elin Hilderbrand Book I‘ve read. It was definitely an easy read, page turner, beach read type of book, but I prefer something a little more suspenseful. I got to the end and thought, all that for this ending?! // #librarybook #bookreview #fiction

My family book club #beachread for our week at the beach! 🏖 hopefully it gets a thumbs up! We are all a bit confused so far.

Booktastic It's a tough one to follow if you have to pick it up and put it down often! I struggled. 5d
RachelAmphlett Do stick with it - it settles down about a third of the way in, and then whoosh! One of my favourite reads this year. 5d
Chelsea.Poole @Booktastic ohhhh no! That's what we are all doing: picking up/putting it down often. Shoot! Maybe I should have chosen something else for the trip. 😔 5d
Chelsea.Poole @RachelAmphlett thank you! I hope we can muster the patience. I am getting close to a third of the way through. Thanks for the encouragement ☺️ 5d
Booktastic @Chelsea.Poole You might do better than I did! My memory just wasn't good enough to keep track of what was going on 5d

Wow! Ruth Ware does it again. This might be my new favorite book of hers. It is thrilling, full of twists and turns, everything is well-plotted, and Ware knows just how to make you feel unsettled without feeling spooked. The Nanny Diaries meets The Turn of the Screw - a haunted house story for the smart home era! (You will *never* want a smart home after this). 5 stars.

Chrissyreadit Checking in about your Staycation In Time Swap package in case you were not notified about my tag.... 5d
bookandcat @Chrissyreadit hi, I am not sure which tag you mean! I emailed you when I sent mine out and I tagged you in the post when I received a package from my swapmmate - as far as I know we should all be squared away as she received her package too! Was there something else I should do? 5d
bookandcat @Chrissyreadit it was a few weeks ago that I mailed mine and also got mine 5d

Unpopular opinion: I always slightly struggle with McEwan's style but I'm glad I'm finally getting into and finishing this one.

The Unhoneymooners | Christina Lauren

Celebrating my 5th anniversary on the beach! Just finished this super adorable romance book - perfect beach read. Olive hates Ethan, but when her twin Ami gets married to Ethan's brother Dane and everyone EXCEPT Olive and Ethan get sick, they are sent on the bridal honeymoon to Maui instead. Highjinks ensue. This would also make a perfect romcom movie. Flirty read but nothing overly graphic in this book either - PG-13. 5 🌟 #beachread #romantsy

Not the best book but a decent summer/beach read. Having three sisters of my own I could relate to the sister dynamic.

Finished this book of my sister‘s while vacationing with her on the Cape. Sweet, well drawn characters- perfect beach read.I did not realize until I read about the author that her next book, Things You Save in a Fire, has the female fire fighter who is part of the rescue team at the crash site in How To Walk Away. Moving that book up to top of My TBR.

Woke up early this morning and read this sweet (tho predictable) ya story. After breaking up with her bf who was spending way too much time online Mallory swears off technology and tries to complete a list of her grandma‘s from 1962 with the help of her sister. #palatecleanser #ya #beachread

DivineDiana Sounds lovely. 💗 1w
