Book Review: Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: I can’t say I truly enjoyed this book. I found it difficult to get through, and most of the characters unlikable to a point of nonredeemable. Into the Water is a good enough read, but I simply didn’t love it. Paula Hawkins is talented enough to where she sets a…

Book Review: The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison

Book Rating: 4/5 Book Review: Uff, this was hard to get through. Not because of the writing, the writing was great. It was more because of the horrifying, haunting subject matter. If you can’t read about rape, murder, kidnapping, pedophilia, and other disturbing subjects, do not read The Butterfly Garden. If you can get through it,…

Book Review: The Child by Fiona Barton

Book Rating: 5/5 Book Review: I read The Widow by Fiona Barton last year, so The Child seemed a natural follow up after reading that. It follows the same characters, but this book is a completely different story so it can stand on it’s own, no need to read The Widow first, unless you want to…

Book Review: P.S. From Paris by Marc Levy

“One day, I’m going to live in theory, because in theory everything goes perfectly.” Book Rating: 5/5 Book Review: I loved everything about this book. It’s funny, it’s refreshing, it’s heartwarming. P.S. From Paris is an outstanding read! Levy knows his characters and wrote this woman so well. Normally, I am so wary of male…

Book Review: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Book Rating: 4/5 Book Review: As someone who cares about and over-analyzes literally everything, I needed this book in my life. I’ve been all about the self help books lately. Better life? More happiness? Feeling fulfilled? Being self confident? Sign. Me. Up. Share the secret! Well, Mark Manson would refer to me as a “self…

Book Review: Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

Book Rating: 5/5 Book Review: The Luckiest Girl Alive is unique in the fact that for the first half of the book, you can’t decide if you love the narrator, Ani, or if you truly loathe her. The girl can really judge a person. I’d personally be terrified to meet this narrator because I would…

Book Review: Final Girls by Riley Sager

Book Rating 5/5 Book Review Talk about a book that sticks with you–in good ways and in bad! I read this on a camping trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton, and let’s just say I was a little spooked. Final Girls, not surprisingly, is a book about “final girls”… you know, the ones that survive…
