Favorites: Halfway through 2016

A collection of my favorite reads so far this year.

June has come and gone and so far I’ve read 39 books. They have all been great too which is why I wanted to share my favorite reads so far this year. I’m also really interested in looking back at the end of the year and seeing which of these makes the final cut for the end of the year favorites. I’m sure the list will change, but for now, I’m extremely happy with the lineup. I hope that you’ll find at least one you haven’t read yet and give it a go!!

Today, I’m dressed head to toe Americana and ready to celebrate! Sadly, Zach has to work so I’ll just be chilling at home. There will be sunshine, bbq foods, and of course a good book! Later, I’ll most likely stay home with our pup and watch the fireworks from upstairs. I love this time of year. I hope you all have a fun and safe holiday!

Happy Fourth of July!

Wrap Up: March 2016

My favorite read this month would be…

March was a crazy month and while I didn’t get to every book I had hoped, I’m happy with what I was able to read. My favorite read during March would have to be Me Before You. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it and the movie was pretty great too!

Book Review: He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker

“This man was once my salvation. Now he will be my ruin.”

Gripping | 5/5 stars | Buy your copy of He Will Be My Ruin

Overview: 
Maggie receives a devastating phone call about her best friend, Celine. The police tell Maggie that Celine has committed suicide, but she doesn’t believe it even if all the evidence does point to suicide. Maggie’s suspicion grows after finding clues like this, “This man was once my salvation. Now he will be my ruin.” Becoming more confident that Celine was murdered, she hires a Private Investigator and promises to get this case solved.

What I loved: 
Throws you straight into all the action and then rewinds to reveal how we got there, its hard to put down, and had me questioning EVERYONE!!

What I didn’t: Lingering questions…Sequel?!

If you liked You, Sharp Objects, The Girl on the Train, then: grab this one. Right now.
