Overview: Abbey is a mom of two who’s doing her best to balance motherhood, being the perfect wife, and work, but she’s overworked and stressed. So when she finds out her husbands business is in trouble, she’s left with more than she can handle and forced to return that gorgeous red Marc Jacobs bag she bought for herself. While attempting to make the return she ends up falling and finds herself in an alternate universe. She now has the “perfect” life, however she quickly realizes it’s not at all what it seems.

What I loved: 
How easily I connected with the main character. It was humorous, fun, and light making it perfect for Summer. Definitely had some Freaky Friday vibes! The ending was perfection.

What I didn’t: A little slow in places.

If you liked The Devil Wears Prada or Freaky Friday then: this one is for you because its a perfect mash up of the two!

TBR: March 2016

Books I wanted to read in March. I was a little ambitious!

I had a slightly ambitious TBR for March and sadly I didn’t get to them all… but that’s life I suppose. I can’t wait to share what I actually did read (full reviews coming soon!) I started The Swans of Fifth Avenue that month and when I couldn’t get into it, I set it aside and moved on to another. I have finally finished it, but it did take me two months. Have you ever had a book that you struggled with?

Book Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

“Some things you can never leave behind. They don’t belong to the past. They belong to you.”

Must Read | 5/5 stars | Buy your copy of The 5th Wave

Overview: 
When aliens suddenly appear and threaten to take over the planet, Cassie looses everything she’s ever know including her family. She’s left to take on the world alone, that is until she meets Evan.

What I loved: It jumps straight into the action. Being able to hear Cassie’s thoughts was a great element (and had me laughing). Makes you think about your own morals  and there’s a little romance too! Hello cliff hanger…

What I didn’t: Point of View changes were tricky.

If you liked Hunger Games, Maze Runner, or Divergent: this is right up your alley! And be sure to continue on with the series with The Infinite Sea!
