Read June 20, 2020 – June 21, 2020 Abby Jimenez has published two novels and owns a successful bakery in Minnesota. Her second novel, The Happy Ever After Playlist, is what drew my attention to this one. When I realized that The Friend Zone was a sort of prequel to her second novel, I decided to start hereContinue reading “Just Read: “The Friend Zone” by Abby Jimenez”

Just Read: “Sorry I Missed You” by Suzy Krause

Read June 17, 2020 – June 19, 2020 Julie Krause’s second novel, Sorry I Missed You, showed up on one of those “Coming Soon” book release emails last month so I put it on the Potential TBR But Not So Committed TBR That I Purchased It Already list.

Just Read: “In Five Years” by Rebecca Serle

Read June 12, 2020 – June 13, 2020 Rebecca Serle is a seasoned author who writes for both young adult and adult audiences. This particular novel really stood out to me when I was browsing through the bookstore because the cover is pretty and clean  – I know, I know… we aren’t suppose to judge books byContinue reading “Just Read: “In Five Years” by Rebecca Serle”

Just Read: “The Last Flight” by Julie Clark

Read June 9, 2020 – June 11, 2020 Julie Clark’s sophomore novel, The Last Flight, arrived in my Book of the Month box this month. There were 5 choices, all vetted by the staff, and as part of the program you select at least one to be shipped to you for the month.

Just Read: “Big Little Lies” by Liane Moriarty

Read May 19, 2020 – May 22, 2020 We’re talking about the book here, not the HBO series. I chose Liane Moritary’s novel after it popped up as a suggested read on GoodReads – the description interested me and Moritary’s writing gets pretty consistently good reviews so I figured it couldn’t hurt to give itContinue reading “Just Read: “Big Little Lies” by Liane Moriarty”

Just Read: “The Guest List” by Lucy Foley

Read June 2, 2020 – June 4, 2020 Lucy Foley has published a few novels since 2015 and appears to be quite the hit among contemporary readers. I hadn’t heard of her, probably because I was in graduate school from 2015-2018 and had my nose stuck so high in the air while reading critical literaryContinue reading “Just Read: “The Guest List” by Lucy Foley”

Just Read: “Deep Water” by Patricia Highsmith

Read May 30, 2020 – June 2, 2020 This isn’t the first novel by Patricia Highsmith that I’ve read and if you’re into her, or the American Modernist authors, you’ll enjoy this narrative that will soon be adapted to the big screen. The film is currently set to release in November of this year! I’mContinue reading “Just Read: “Deep Water” by Patricia Highsmith”

Just Read: “The Giver of Stars” by Jojo Moyes

Read May 25, 2020 – May 28, 2020 As if those reading dates don’t speak for themselves. Moyes’s most recent novel delivers on her name. She’s most popular for the Me Before You Trilogy but I definitely didn’t pick up this particular novel because of that. I actually haven’t read any in the trilogy andContinue reading “Just Read: “The Giver of Stars” by Jojo Moyes”
