I‘m finding this book to be a little stressful. The “girlfriend” is already being so manipulative to this poor mom and I am not even half done. 😰 No complaints about the writing. It‘s almost TOO good!

I was lucky enough to have someone share their early copy of this book with me. It is SO GOOD. Really suspenseful and creepy. I stayed up way too late last night finishing it. Five stars!!! 🌠

Lovesbooks87 I have an ARC of this and have been saving it! May have to bump it up the TBR list! 2w

Finally starting this one, the latest Maisie Dobbs book. I was lucky enough to meet Jacqueline Winspear last month and get my copy signed!

Broken Ice: A Novel | Matt Goldman

I really liked the first book in this series and bought this one in 2018, fully intending to read it right away. Here we are in May 2019. I just now finished it today and the next book in the series comes out in a week. Ha ha. So I‘ll probably buy that one and read it in 2020! Anyway, I really like these books. The main character is a detective/former cop named Nils Shapiro. He‘s kind of a mess and a smart ass but a great detective!

This is the 25th book in the Faith Fairchild series. I have read all of them. I‘ve been reading these for years. I‘m not a good cook or baker but I have actually made some of the food from these books (recipes always included)! I love this series. 💕

The Last House Guest | Megan Miranda
Pickpick

I received an early copy of this book from the publisher.

I‘ve now read three books by this author and this one was by far my favorite. A truly great story and plot that kept me guessing from start to finish. And let me tell you, there were some jaw dropping twists near the end!! I really recommend this book. If you like suspenseful books you‘ll love this one.

Daisy Jones & The Six | Taylor Jenkins Reid

“That night, when Graham, Karen and I did peyote, I remember telling myself that if the album was shit, I was gonna be okay. Because I could make spoons for a living. That logic wasn‘t sound, obviously. But the thought did stick with me. You can‘t put all your eggs in one basket.”

I had planned to read this one the week it was released, but life got in the way, so I‘m starting it this weekend. I had no idea that I was listed in the acknowledgments 😍

Reading an ARC of this one and it‘s sooo good. I think it was already published in the U.K. Houghton Mifflin is publishing the U.S. version in March.

Reading this took me back to the nightmare my life was before I finally got prescribed Ambien. My sleep still isn‘t perfect, but it‘s vastly improved.

An Unwanted Guest | Shari Lapena

I loved this book. I think I am in the minority here, but I didn‘t like The Couple Next Door. I thought all the plot twists got really ridiculous about halfway through. I haven‘t read A Stranger In The House and might not have read this one either, but I am a sucker for this type of book — a group of strangers, an isolated location, a snowstorm! I can‘t resist! And this one hit the spot. The writing is great. I felt the tension and fear!!

I‘m on page 134. Let‘s just say I am at a point in the book where the people staying at this hotel need to stick together in a group. If someone needs to leave the room, for God‘s sake USE THE BUDDY SYSTEM!

"I" is for Innocent | Sue Grafton

He wore jeans, muddy work boots, and a blue denim shirt with the sleeves rolled up. The hair on his forearms was dark and silky. He smelled of damp soil and metal. He looked like an actor who would star in some movie about a doomed love affair between an heiress and a park ranger. I thought it was probably inappropriate to fling myself against him and bury my nose in his chest.

I really love this book series. I love all of the recurring characters, including the dogs. Unfortunately now I have to wait for the next book to come out. This would be a fun series to do a re-read for, but I am already doing that with the Sue Grafton books, so these will have to wait!

This book is really fascinating. I went into it not knowing much about the subject matter but I was thoroughly interested and it was a pretty fast read. Usually nonfiction takes me longer but this one went fast!

I really like this series. I‘m kind of obsessed with islands. In this book innkeeper Natalie is hosting a yoga retreat. But the peace and tranquility is interrupted by a dead body.
