I've had a not-so-amazing day today. Don't you hate when that happens? I've been fighting a cold all week and it just escalated last night. So this morning I was already not feeling amazing and didn't get the best sleep as I could barely breathe out of my nose and my husband was similarly afflicted...and... Continue Reading →
The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker, 4 Stars
The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker is exactly what I want from a sleepy Sunday afternoon read.
The Suspect by Fiona Barton, 3.5 Stars
Whenever I think of Thailand and teenagers, I think of Brokedown Palace. The ultimate "be careful traveling internationally" story.

An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, 5 Stars
I loved The Wife Between Us. Like, really loved it. And it was a New York Times best-seller--can't argue with that, huh? So when I saw that Hendricks and Pekkanen had teamed up for another book--An Anonymous Girl, it shot straight to the top of my TBR list. Sometimes I just brace myself for a... Continue Reading →
The Au Pair by Emma Rous, 3.5 Stars
