Happy Thursday

I’m currently reading The Night Swim by Megan Goldin

It is a tough one I’ll admit, I had to watch Zootopia last night before bed just to put my mind at ease. I am loving it but I am angry and sad all mixed together. I can’t wait to finish it tomorrow.

I hope you guys are having a great week! 😄

Book Review

Book Review

Synopsis: Alison Green desperate valedictorian wannabe, agrees to produce her schools production of. Midsummers Night’s Dream. That’s her first big mistake. The second is accidentally saying yes to a date with her oldest best friend, Jack, even though she’s crushing on Charolette. Allison must cope with the misadventures that befall the play if she’s going to survive this year

I really enjoyed this book! It was so funny and a light read. I enjoyed how the main character had a coming of age moment at the end of the book. She spent the whole year really trying to figure out who she was, while being a senior in high school. And let’s be honest senior year of high school is not always very easy. The book flowed very well and kept me highly entertained throughout the whole thing. I would definitely recommend this if you want something light.

A Spell For Trouble

A Spell For Trouble

I am a huge cozy mystery fan, so I couldn’t wait to read A Spell for Trouble by Esme Addison.

Synopsis: Aleksandra Daniels hasn’t set foot in the quiet seaside town of Bellamy Bay, North Carolina in over twenty years. Ever since her mother’s tragic death, her father has mysteriously forbidden her from visiting her aunt and cousins. But on a whole Alex accepts an invitation to visit her estranged relatives.

Guys this book was really good, I finished it in three days! I couldn’t put it down, the story telling was amazing. The descriptions made everything seem real and totally sucked me in. I had a picture of what everything and everyone looked like in my head. This was a very fun read and I can not wait for the second book in this series. Thank you

All Our Summers

All Our Summers

I got a chance to read All Our Summers by Holly Chamberlin.

While the cover of this is very cute and you think it’s going to be an interesting read about summer and the memories two sisters have. It turned out to be the complete opposite.

This one was really hard for me to finish, I couldn’t connect with the characters or story line. There seemed to be unnecessary drama and one sister was way more dramatic and confrontational then I expected. I did looked interest. It did pick up again for me at the end when they had a break through in their relationship. This book was also extremely long, which made everything really drawn out.

Becoming

Becoming

Becoming is an autobiography by Michelle Obama. Before reading this book I only knew of First lady Obama from what I saw on the news and social media. Like the rest of the world I was in awe of her and her family, but I never thought to dig deeper about her. I saw how her book became a best seller and how people really admired her and said that I would read the book one day. I was not only pushed by bookstagram but I watched her documentary on Netflix and it was very moving for me. The role she took on and still tried to be a normal citizen and the struggles that came with that was refreshing to see in a way. After reading this book I think she is an amazing and inspirational person. I related to her humble beginnings, growing up in Chicago and her life journey was really great to read. Becoming by Michelle Obama really changed my way of thinking and my perspective on life. No matter what hat you wear, mother, wife, business woman without those titles you are still you. With this book that is what she was trying to convey is that you always have to remain who you are and maybe sometimes have to re balance and take a different course at times but you will always be you. I recommend this book to all, and give it 5 stars.

The Secret Women

The Secret Women

Can I just send a cheers to all strong women!

If you are looking for a book that will pull at your heartstrings and still fill you with happiness then I highly recommend The Secret Women by Sheila Williams. I finished this book within a week last week that how phenomenal it was.

Three women become fast friends after a yoga class and margaritas at a local restaurant. I was initially drawn to the cover of this book because it is so pretty, but once I started reading I was drawn to all three women. I love how they became such a great support system for each other when they live completely different lives and didn’t formally know each other outside of their weekly yoga class. I found myself aww-ing at certain parts of this story that how invested I became in these characters. They each couldn’t handle what was troubling them alone and with the help of the others, they battled and conquered their fears. Two things you can take away from this book are how women are great at uplifting each other when handling things alone just won’t cut it. everyone needs a great set of friends to help them with life struggles and to help them navigate how to be able to move on and succeed in life. The second is that sometimes you don’t have to have similar backgrounds with someone for them to be a friend.

I liked this book so much I will be going to pick up a hard copy it was published last week! Truly great read, I give it 4 stars.
