Beautiful love story that follows Mia who is just trying to find herself and her soul mate. It‘s also magical because somehow Mia is able to go back into time where her true soulmate is. #magical #salemstory #witchstories #lovestory #springreading #kindlereading

Yellowface | Rebecca F. Kuang

Pickpick

This book reads like a dream, a thriller dream and it isn‘t. First chapter, main character‘s college friend dies “In a weird tragic way” who also was a successful writer. Then the “protagonist” who also is a writer, does the unthinkable. We will leave it at that. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cathythoughts I enjoyed this one too 👍🏻 3w

A Certain Hunger | Chelsea G. Summers
post image

If you want to read about a female psychopath who starts dating men only to later scheme up a plan to murder them to enjoy them in a meal, this is it. The Protagonist, is a writer for food magazines who was thinking about revenge on a few men and thought, hmm let me try using a certain body part in a dish. It‘s a dark story meant to be humorous. I got it, at the end. It hit me like an Edgar Allen Poe :) #canibalism #darkstory #winterreading #libby

Hello Beautiful | Ann Napolitano
post image

This book about 4 close knit Italian sisters and about how their life choices alters their family dynamic. It also touches on how depression affects not only the sufferer but everyone around that person. It also makes you think about having patience for depression sufferers. This was a very sad book and it was an eye opener. Total recommend. Loved this one here !!! #depression #learningpatience #winterreading

Fall of Ruin and Wrath | Jennifer L. Armentrout

Fun, sexy, fantasy read but the ending… woah! I did not see it coming at all. It was like a car crash ending. I don‘t know how I feel about this 🤔#adultfantasy #winterreading

The Nightingale | Kristin Hannah

This one broke me. I cried so hard. I really recommend this book. I hear it should be a movie soon with the Fanning sisters, Dakota and Elle, which I would watch. It‘s about the German invasion on France and the Holocaust. It talks about the ladies who helped hide and save Jewish children during WWII. Heartbreaking 💔

LoverOfLearning Reading this nowa almost halfway. Loving it already even though I know I will be shattered. 3mo
Beachbum @LoverOfLearning My heart broke for every main character who was impacted in this story by Love - doing it all for Love 💔 (without giving nothing away) 2mo
LoverOfLearning @Beachbum 😭😭😭 I'm at like chapter 20. I've heard chapter 22 is Gut-wrenching and I'm not sure I'm prepared. 2mo
Beachbum @LoverOfLearning that was me, I wasn‘t sure if I was ready for the next chapter 💔😢😭Sister protecting sister, Neighbor protecting bestie,protecting child, lover protecting lover, this had me heart all over the place. And at the end….💔 2mo

Big Chicas Don't Cry | Annette Chavez Macias

This was a great story about a Mexican family and how each of the female cousins deal with the events brought to their lives. It‘s very relatable being a Latina myself. There was a lot of lines that made me smile and some that made me feel for the girls the stories were about. I totally recommend 👍🏻👍🏻 #kindleunlimited #winterreads #latinaauthors

I'm Glad My Mom Died | Jennette McCurdy
post image

This is such a sad a tragic story that Jeannette shared with the world. She lost her youth and teenage years at the hands of her abusive mother. She was mentally abused by her mother in ways, unimaginable! This was a very well written bio that was sad but somehow, Ms. Jennette somehow found ways to slip her humor that mad it a little easier to read. Totally recommend this. Trigger warnings, eating disorders #mentalabuse #survivor #eatingdisorder

Have you ever read a book that pisses you off? This does when a Latina teenager gets detention just for not wearing a bra!!! How she was spoken to and how she was treated.

She's Gone | David Bell

Happy Fall everyone! 🍁🎃🌻 Yes, I‘m reading at the beach still because we‘re still getting 70 degree weather in Central Cali. This book I started, is perfect to start in the first days of fall because what the story is about, takes place in October and it‘s a mystery. I can NOT put down. I will be finishing it tonight. About a teenager who‘s in a car accident with his girlfriend and wakes up after and she‘s missing. So good #fallbooks #beachreads

Queenie | Candice Carty-Williams
post image

I finished this book “Queenie”, and I really enjoyed it. I had to put it down several times because it depressed me and I didn‘t want to be put in that state of mind. Queenie is a 20ish black woman who was mentally abused as a child. Now as an adult, she appears to not have self worth. There is a bigger picture and a great story line. It is a must read! #mentalabuse #queenie #endofsummer

Wrong Place, Wrong Time | Gillian McAllister

Haven‘t been to this particular beach in a while. I started this #reesesbookclub pick and the suspense starts immediately, in the 1st chapter. The story line includes a lot of “going back in time” and trying to fix the wrongs. So enjoyable, you can‘t wait to turn the next page #summerreading #librarybooks #beachreads #bookclub

Just started this new book today and I love it. I noticed I like story lines that have to do with main characters being writers. Not only is the main character Florence a ghost writer, but she sees ghosts. Literally. It was a beautiful day today at the beach and we are lucky the hurricane isn‘t hitting the west coast. Prayers to all those who are being affected. I more month of summer, got to enjoy these last days #beachreading #summerreading

My daughter bought this new cozy blanket, it says “Believe in Magic”, so cute!!! I‘m gonna start When In Rome since it‘s a library book and it‘s due by the end of the week and then I‘ll go back to the Dreamland Billionaires. Oh, that‘s a good series.

I‘ve never read anything by Lauren Asher but I‘m enjoying this humorous character Zahra who has a crush on her boss Rowan. It‘s the first book of the Dreamland Billionaire Series I‘m really getting hooked on. It‘s main setting sounds like a fictional “Disneyland” type place where they both work at. Btw, I‘m at my favorite beach here in Central California #beachreads #dreamlandbillionaireseries #laurenasher #kindle

Happy Sunday everyone! I started this Reese‘s Book Club pick last night and I have no regrets. Immediately suspenseful and a psychological thriller. I went shopping today and had to take it with me so I can read it on the road. It‘s a must read. I can really see this as a movie,knowing Reese W it just might be.

Ok, I haven‘t read the 1st one , “Finlay Donovan is Killing It”, but I will after I‘m done with this. It‘s not necessary to read the books in order because Elle Cosimano is such an amazing writer that she inserts a little bit of flashbacks in a subtle way it‘s not necessary. She adds drama, romcom and mystery,she has me hooked!!! A must read. You won‘t sleep when you start this in bed. Trust me 👍🏻#ellecosimanonewfan #newsummerread #ellecosimano

Got this on a random run to B&N and found this YA as their monthly pick and I have no regrets. The setting is in Louisiana near New Orleans and I can feel and get the vibe and accents of the characters. It‘s spooky and I‘ve gotten a little creeped out like I did in Verity, lol. I think the cover is super beautiful too!!!

Tarrra_Lynnn I personally wasn‘t a fan of this one. I wanted to enjoy it, but just couldn‘t get into it. I actually got to meet her at a book signing event when I got this book - which was pretty cool! 2y
Beachbum @Tarrra_Lynnn I get what your saying about this book. It‘s her style of writing when she adds the character‘s “exclamations” which is kinda cheesy. It did take a while for me to get into but it in the end it was an o.k book. Definitely not a favorite but it felt like a chick flick, rom com cozy kinda story. I would have freaked out meeting her. That was cool ❤️ 2y
