Is it just me, or is this a great week!?
I think all the excitement of St. Patrick's Day paired with some beautiful spring weather these last few days has me in an amazing mood!
Today I am excited to share the books I have read so far in 2015.
I am a shameless bookworm and find so much enjoyment out of spending an entire day vegged out on the couch with a good book. This year, when beginning to select books, I have often found myself looking to this list that I found on Pinterest. It already had several books I had read (and liked) so I thought it would serve as a good go-to for other selections.
I am currently on my 8th book of 2015 and it feels great. Here's a look at what I've read so far this year...
I will rank each on a 5 star scale and mention a word or two about them!
Good, light read. Semi predictable..tells the story of Kit,
a Wall Street divorcee and her path to find new love.
Also interweaves the stories of a few of her close girflriends.
Tells the story of Gabby, a happily married middle aged woman--
Or so she thought...until...she meets Matt.
Will Gabby risk all for an affair with Matt
or protect the family and life she holds so dear?
Kate, a single mother, struggles to balance work and family.
When she receives a call from her daughter's prestigious private NYC school,
and learns that her daughter Amelia has fallen (or jumped) to her death,
Kate's world is turned upside down. But...did Amelia really jump?
Andy is an assistant DA in a tight-knit suburban town. He finds every aspect of his life
being compromised and put to the test when his son's classmate is found brutally
stabbed in the woods near school. When Jacob, Andy's quiet son, is found suspect of the
murder Andy will stop at nothing to prove his innocence.
Light read, but an especially good one. Alice wakes up after a spinning
accident to remember nothing from the last 10 years.
(i.e. She doesn't remember the birth of any of her 3 kids, her impending divorce,
or drama with her sister). The life she awakens to is nothing like the one she imagined,
so a foggy-headed Alice works to remember and also fight for the life she always dreamed of.
This was a disappointment...it was compared to Gone Girl, but just didn't hit the mark.
Jodi, an accepting wife, is tolerant of her husband's flaws...until he takes it too far
and finds himself a father-to-be with one of his mistresses. What will Jodi do
int the face of this challenge? Will she fight for she and Todd or only for herself?
A slower read, but well worth the effort. Tells the stories of Lavinia and Belle.
Lavinia, an orphaned Irish indentured servant on a Virginia plantation and
Belle, the young woman, entrusted with the care of Lavinia,
who prepares delicious meals for the captain and his family from her kitchen house.
And I just started (and am definitely intrigued by) this book:
Have you read any of these books?
If so, what are your thoughts on them?
Do you feel the same way as I do?
Also..do you have any great suggestions for me to read next?
What are you currently reading?
Have a great day!
