The Mermaid Handbook-Carolyn Turgeon

Attention merpeople! Or those of you who are big fans like me! You’re going to want to grab a copy of The Mermaid Handbook asap! It’s super hard to review a book like this because it’s a collection of tales (and tails), recipes and projects. So instead of rating this like I normally would, I’mContinue reading “The Mermaid Handbook-Carolyn Turgeon”

The Perfect Mother-Aimee Molloy

When I heard Kerry Washington was going to be in an upcoming movie based on a book I was, naturally, pretty damn excited. The Perfect Mother follows a group of new first time moms.

Beneath The Mountain-Luca D’Andrea

I can’t turn down a thriller and boy am I glad I was sent a copy of Beneath The Mountain! Jeremiah Salinger is a documentarian of sorts. His claim to fame was, in his eyes, nothing special. When he moves to Italy with his wife and daughter and starts working on his next project, followingContinue reading “Beneath The Mountain-Luca D’Andrea”

Tampa- Alissa Nutting

This is probably the first negative review I’ve given and I try to avoid critiquing so negatively because being positive is my nature but holy crap…. I don’t think I fully grasped the plot of this book prior to requesting it from HarperCollins. The story is about Celeste, a young, beautiful, wealthy middle school teacherContinue reading “Tampa- Alissa Nutting”

The Last Mrs. Parrish-Liv Constantine

I don’t often compare books to Gone Girl, and while it is a deliciously twisted plot, it more reminds me of that story because the main characters in both novels are horrible.  I genuinely hated the main character in The Last Mrs. Parrish but my anger made me want know what happens to her. AmberContinue reading “The Last Mrs. Parrish-Liv Constantine”

I’m so sorry I’ve been such a slacker! Between our wedding/honeymoon trip to Montana, our wedding reception and returning to work I’ve been completely swamped! Luckily, I’m getting back into the swing of things and have started reading pretty heavily again. When Stephanie’s friend Emily asks her to pick up her son from school, StephanieContinue reading “A Simple Favor-Darcey Bell”

Magpie Murders-Anthony Horowitz

Two mysteries in one?!?! Count me in! When I heard about Magpie Murders I was curious how the ending would turn out in this Agatha Christie-esque story since there was so much hype. Editor Susan Ryeland receives a copy of her popular author Alan Conway’s newest mystery novel in its series. It is, naturally, herContinue reading “Magpie Murders-Anthony Horowitz”

Since We Fell- Dennis Lehane

Dennis Lehane is the man. He’s written two of my favorite books, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island so least to say, when I received his new book “Since We Fell” in the mail I completely freaked out. I requested this book from Ecco without entirely knowing what it was about which I’ve been tryingContinue reading “Since We Fell- Dennis Lehane”
