So, I sucked on the blog front last month due to a lot of those personal things but I’m ready to get back into the swing of things and get this little blog going again!
I kept up with my reading this past month and read 3 books so even though it’s already the second week into March – I’m sharing my review!
First I read…
A Summer Affair: Elin Hilderbrand
Of course, another Elin book, right?! This wasn’t my favorite Elin book… I took me a while to get into it – I knew I wanted to finish it but after the first few chapters, I still wasn’t crazy into it. Once I got halfway through, I had to keep reading because I really didn’t know how it was going to turn out! I’d recommend it because I do love her writing style but I’d give it more of a 3.5 out of 5.
Next, I read…
A Stranger in the House: Shari Lapena
This was the second book I’ve read by this author and this one didn’t disappoint. I really didn’t see the ending coming! It’s a thriller and it keeps you on your toes; who’s the bad person?! This book starts with a generic housewife getting in a huge car accident and not remembering anything that happened. To make matters worse, the car accident is near where a man was murdered – how do they relate?! I’d give this book a 4.5 out of 5 and I’d recommend this one if you like mystery thrillers for sure!
Lastly, for the month..
First Comes Love: Emily Giffin
This was the last book I finished in February. I’d read a few of Emily Giffin’s books previously and love her style – this book didn’t disappoint. It’s about tragedy that strikes a family and how each member has dealt with it. It takes place 15 years after the event and it’s interesting to see the family dynamic. It had a similar instance of what we’re going through right now, which was a total shock to me but I suppose rounded out the book. I also liked how she made a nod to one of her previous books with one of the relationships in this one – I always love when authors do that! I’d recommend this book – and give it a 4 out of 5!
Ok y’all.. i’m onto the next book! I have a running list in my phone of books you’ve recommended and I can always use more – so if you’ve read one recently that’s a MUST, please let me know 🙂
