Review | Same Beach, Next Year by Dorothea Benton Frank

Review | Same Beach, Next Ye..

Why I Read It: It’s still only May and I’ve already read some great warm-weather reads this year! I loved the cover on this book and the fact that it is set in the Lowcountry. I love books set in the Carolinas plus I’ve been wanting to reading something by Dorothea Benton Frank for ages now, […]

Review | The Beach House: Coming Home by Georgia Bockoven

Review | The Beach House: Co..

Why I Read It: I’m a sucker for reading beach-themed books in the warm weather. Or books with a beach on the cover. Or books that have a setting by the shore. When I was presented with the opportunity to read this book, the cover and title drew me in. Plus this is a series […]

Review | It Happens In The Hamptons by Holly Peterson

Review | It Happens In The H..

Why I Read It: I’m all about summer reading and beach reading, and It Happens in the Hamptons by Holly Peterson looked perfect when I saw the synopsis. I love stories about “locals vs. vacationers” – especially in tourist areas like the Hamptons. Review: This is the very best kind of beach/warm weather reading. Katie moved […]

Review | The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

Review | The Other Einstein ..

Why I Read It: I fell in love with this book cover – I absolutely love it. But I also was interested in the story of a woman living in the shadow of her famous husband. How the heck is this even possible? It seems like a far-fetched thing today, but for women back in the […]

Review | Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters

Review | Underground Airline..

Why I read It: I’ve had my eye on Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters since I first heard about it, way back before it was published. But thriller/mystery/suspense books aren’t my go-to reads. I had to work myself up to it. I finally checked this one out from the library in both book and audiobook […]

Review | Written In The Stars by Aisha Saeed

Review | Written In The Star..

Review: Written In The Stars by Aisha Saeed is fantastic. For much of the story, I felt heartbreak and rage at the situation that Naila’s parents forced her into…with a big exhale at the hopeful ending. I can’t speak to the culture of arranged marriages vs. forced marriages, but I definitely appreciate what this author has […]

Review | The Idea of You by Amanda Prowse

Review | The Idea of You by ..

Review: This book was not like I thought it was going to be when I read the synopsis. In reading the synopsis, I thought this was supposed to be a book about a working woman trying to balance a work life with motherhood. But the first half of the book was pretty different from this. […]
