Current read. Her mom was awful 😡
Non fiction about how fast raising children happens and how we struggle with the guilt of chasing a career and chasing kids. As a working mom who raised 6 kids, this resonates with me.
Spent the day at the beach for Mother‘s Day and enjoyed some reading
I have loved Beth Moore for over 20 years. This is her memoir and it is so raw, powerful and honest. I see so much of who I used to be in her and how much we change as we age. We don‘t always see through the same lens as we did in our early days of marriage and raising kids. She speaks about the patriarchal hypocrisy in the church very honestly. We need to support women that speak out against abuse. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Gabe and Pippa live at the beach near a cliff where people jump to end their life. One day they saw a woman jump and realize that they know the woman. She happens to be the wife of Gabe‘s boss, Max. Max owns a huge media company and has no idea why his wife would commit suicide. This book was so good and it had one of those moments where my mouth dropped near the end.
Sunday reading 🏝️🌊☀️
I can‘t put it down!
This one has been pretty good so far and weird..not sure where it‘s going ❤️
I love a YA novel that is set at a rich prep school and this one is pretty good! Rich kids are vying to be inducted into a super secret club called the Legacy, but something happens the night of the induction ceremony and someone ends up dead. A great summer read.
Samantha goes back to her hometown where her family was murdered when she is told that there might be new evidence. She begins to dig up secrets and old wounds (with a nice twist!)
Starting this one today
Moore is the author of one of my favorite books, "Long Bright River" and this book was written prior to that book. It's the story of David and Ada, a father and daughter who live quite sheltered from the rest of the world
Mike Gannon is a former SEAL and has been in hiding in Utah after making some bad guys mad. He and his son take a chance to head to Alaska for a hunting trip and Mike ends up kidnapped. This is a fast paced novel in the same vein as Jack Reacher. Pretty good, quick read.
I tried really hard to read this one for #LMPBC and it didn‘t work for me. Sorry to my team for being so late, I picked it up and put it down and wanted to finish it. That‘s the great thing about #LMPBC though - you get a chance to read something you wouldn‘t normally pick up and sometimes you find a new fave and sometimes you don‘t! I appreciate @suvata putting this bookclub together several years ago. It‘s always fun! @Kimzey @arubabookwoman
Starting this one today. It‘s a follow up to The Night Swim
Set in Athens, Georgia, a University of GA student gets hit by a car. Witnesses say the driver was smiling and he looked just like the victim. 😳
I‘m working a half day today and the rest of my weekend is reading 😍😍
Twins changing places, a cult(ish) storyline and childhood stars living in LA are all in this novel by Brown ❤️❤️
This is the February Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick, so I just started reading it
This book is so good!! Twisty rich school murders are always a favorite
Won this ARC! It‘s about a gossip tabloid and the lengths thy go to get the story (and sometimes make it up)
I just love Mary Burton 💚💚💚
Two story lines - a story about the Harrison family who lost a family member because of the death of a friend AND the story of a group of folks that live in hell, sort of like salespeople, who talk people on earth to sell their souls. I‘m sure there are lots of deep meaning in this book, but I found it to be tedious and sometimes confusing.
Teenagers are working in a movie theater for the last time because the mall is being demolished. All of a sudden the doors are locked and they can‘t escape. Someone in the theater is killing them one by one
A young women is murdered in a wealthy suburban town and the “elite” close ranks. Several high school students were with her hen she was killed and they ardent saying anything. This was a slow burn read that had a satisfying ending.
Julia and Sienna are sister-in-laws and Jason (husband and brother) has been in an accident. He‘s in a coma, but his boss is been murdered and the women are torn between their loyalty of Jason and what might be the truth. A pretty quick read with some nice twists.
Got my hold in today!! (Large print had a shorter line)
Getting an oil change…”No, I don‘t mind waiting” 😁
This book received glowing reviews on Goodreads, but I don‘t get it. Two teenagers make a poster, Xerox a bunch of copies, hang them all over town and then people flip out. This is the plot of the book, and it‘s boring and not nearly as good as NOTHING TO SEE HERE, which I really enjoyed. However, I did enjoy my reading view
Reading spot 🏝️🌊🍍
Friday night reading
Claire is getting married to the man of her dreams. He is handsome, rich and part of one of the most famous families around. They travel to Italy to the “family island” for the wedding, but someone wants to kill members of the family. This one was really good, and had a lot of great surprises. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Reading outside before the rain hits 🌧️🌧️
Six students are vying for a college scholarship, but they are locked in a house during the competition. Nothing can go wrong, right?
I usually read library books first, in the order the hood comes in, the book club picks and then whatever I feel like reading. My favorite day of the week is every single day, but so have more focus on Sunday afternoon. #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView
I loved MHC and have read all of her books. Alafair Burke finished this one after her passing ❤️
Vera goes home because her mom, Daphne, is dying. She is asked to clean out the home but Vera‘s dad was a famous serial killer and there may be secrets left behind. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Reading this one but struggling to get through it. 😒
