5 stars – amazing. i will tell everyone about this story. i will push the book to everyone i talk to. i won’t stop thinking about this one for awhile.
March 2019 Reads:
Audiobooks 3 | EBooks 4 | Print 8
In Paris With You by Clémentine Beauvais ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This one was cute – translations are always hard for me but it was an adorable story about two people in love, who just cannot seem to get it together! It literally had me laughing out loud! Really fun!
Final Girls by Riley Sager ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Another great thriller from Riley Sager! I loved The Last Time I Lied, so I knew I would love this campy thriller about the final girls that are left after a horrible massacre or murder spree – the sole survivors. I cannot wait for his next book out this summer – Lock Every Door is out in July!
The Black Coats by Colleen Oakes ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was a book on the BookSparks #YAWRC2019 campaign. LOVED it. Read my full review here.
The Beautiful Strangers by Camille De Maio ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
ADORED this books about a woman who follows her dreams to a dreamy old Hollywood California hotel that is part of a movie set. Marilyn Monroe cameo!! Read my full review here.
Woman 99 by Greer Maccallister ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A really fun historical thriller. A woman voluntarily enters a dreary, terrifying asylum to try to spring her dear sister free. A fun concept, and a wonderful look inside the love of two sisters.
Sunday Best by Ann Lineberger ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
An awesome mystery – full of some really taboo subjects! Read my full review here.
The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh ⭐️
Ehhhhh…… this one was one big puddle of confusion. Women hate mean, so they seclude themselves and medicate them selves with water. Odd. Very, very odd.
In Another Life by C. C. Hunter ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Super fun book! What would you do if you found out that your adopted parents might have actually kidnapped you?! Yikes! Read my full review here.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman ⭐️⭐️
Super unpopular opinion alert! I didn’t like this one very much. I found Eleanor VERY unlikeable and by time we find out why – I just still don’t like her…. sorry folks. Anyone else not into this one?
The Wolf and the Watchman by Niklas Natt och Dag ⭐️⭐️⭐️
This one’s hard to rate. It has great premise, a body washed up – mutilated, no arms, legs, eyes, anything! So creepy. A whodunit for sure! I listened to the audio, and it’s another translation, so I had a hard time keeping interested and engaged. The accents threw me a lot too.
The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
LOVE ME SOME CRAZY! The chick in the book is convinced she is the perfect girlfriend, no matter what anyone says or thinks, or how many times she’s told to stay away. SO much crazy and so much fun!
Bittersweet Brooklyn by Thelma Adams ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was heartbreaking story about the women in a family of mobsters – but it’s not really about gangs, etc. – more about family. An enjoyable read but a bit dark and sad! Read my full review here.
The Testament of Harold’s Wife by Lynne Hugo ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
SO. Much. Fun. Harold’s wife is seeking revenge for the deaths of both her grandson and husband. Along with a bunch of chickens and a cranky cat – this book made me smile – a lot. Read my full review here.
