Daisy Jones & The Six | Taylor Jenkins Reid

Pickpick

I loved Daisy Jones & The Six SO, SO, SO much! I'm a rock-and-roll girl at heart, anyway, so reading about the making of a true rock band--even fictional--was awesome. I loved reading each character's POV and how they were each affected as their dreams came to life. One of my favorite books so far this year!

marleed It‘s the book I most often try to get other people to read! 2w

1. I've got a thing for Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj, even though my fave music is rock/alternative.

2. Fall, without a doubt. Cool, crisp air, pumpkin and apple everything, Halloween, football, and hoodies!

3. Psychological thrillers.

4. Not sure yet. My honey is taking me out to celebrate finishing my first week of radiation 😊.

5. On it!

Between the Lies | Michelle Adams

While waiting to start my first radiation appointment, I finished reading Between The Lies. It was pretty enjoyable and a super-fast read. What happens when you wake up in a hospital and don't know who you are or how you got there and you're forced to go home with people who claim to be your family? Chloe has survived a tragic car accident, but she doesn't remember anything, and she believes she's in danger but doesn't know why. Really liked this!

DivineDiana Sounds like a good read! Sending 💗to you as you start your treatment. 1mo

Historical fiction is not necessarily the genre I go for, but I've heard so many good things about Fiona Davis lately that I had to read one of her books. I loved The Masterpiece! It fluctuates between 1929 and 1974 and focuses on art and art history. I thought the story of a female art teacher trying to break into the male-dominated art world was intriguing and really captured what was happening in these 2 time frames.

I was given this book in a really neat gift bag created by the Baskets of Care organization when I was diagnosed. It did not have a lot about the type I have (DCIS), it still provided me with a lot of info about the way I've been feeling, how to deal with people who don't or won't understand what I'm going through, and about how to deal after. Radiation should be beginning this week or next and I'm ready to take it on! #cancersucks

Sat outside and got some sun over the weekend while reading this. Got a little sunburnt, but that's okay because I really enjoyed this! Sci-fi is not really my genre, but I thought this was a fast read with an interesting, unusual storyline. And I loved how much the negative side of social media played into the story. I can't wait for the sequel! #hankgreen

Went for my one week after-surgery checkup and I am pleased to report that the tissue sample showed the surgeon removed all of the cancer and I only have DCIS--the cancer stayed noninvasive and I can proceed with radiation in a few weeks! This is amazing news!! Everything is healing, stitches were removed, and I'll be back to normal soon. To all my female family and friends, I am now the poster child for getting your yearly mammograms done ASAP!!

Remember Mia | Alexandra Burt

My reading companion Jake is intrigued about my review 😂 All in all, Remember Mia was a pretty good read. A mother wakes up in the hospital, not knowing what happened to her or where her daughter is. She is accused of many things, torn apart in the media, and she's married to a real douche. The main character got on my nerves because she was constantly meek or couldn't get her thoughts together...it was frustrating, but still a decent read.

I liked this book and it was a pretty quick read, but I found myself getting super frustrated with some of the characters. Without throwing in spoilers, one of the story lines includes spousal abuse and an overbearing and intrusive mother-in-law, yet the character who deals with these issues makes excuses and allows things to continue. Too many women putting up with too much BS. However, I still recommend it, as the story itself was intriguing.
