Book Review: City of Girls

This was one of my favorite reads in a long time.  Based on author Elizabeth Gilbert’s other novel Eat, Pray, Love and her creative living guide Big Magic, I wasn’t sure what to expect from a youthful period piece. But man, did she deliver. I tend to find myself drawn to any piece featuring New […]

Book Review: Where the Missing Go

If you don’t like murder mysteries, this is not the novel for you. If you’re a psychological thriller junkie like I am, you should add it to your cart. Full disclosure, I received this book for free as part of my InfluenceHer Essentials Summer Box, which you might’ve seen me mention on my Instagram. I […]

Book Review Round-Up

book reviews

Obviously, I’ve been more than a little M.I.A. lately. Who knew starting a new life would be so distracting?! I’m quite behind on posting book reviews for you guys. Since I read these ones before the madness of moving even began, let’s just say the details aren’t the freshest in my memory. Because of this, […]

Book Review: A Certain Age

a certain age beatriz williams

You may have noticed that a few of the books I’ve reviewed here share a common time period: the 1920’s. I am unceasingly intrigued by the glamour and opulence of the time. Statement-making clothes, bold makeup, perfectly coiffed hair…and that’s just one aspect. The over-the-top parties and clandestine activities are sure to make any modern […]

Book Review: Luckiest Girl Alive

Luckiest Girl Alive

I first heard about Jessica Knoll’s Luckiest Girl Alive over the summer. One of my best friends, Hadley, was telling me that her coworker’s wife had written a book and it was doing really well. I wrote the title down in my phone so I would remember to grab a copy. When I saw it in stores […]

“None of us ever know all the possible courses our lives could have, and maybe should have, taken. It’s probably just as well. Some secrets are meant to stay secret forever. Just ask Pandora.” – Liane Moriarty, The Husband’s Secret Liane Moriarty’s The Husband’s Secret is a #1 New York Times Bestseller. I’ve noticed the title every time […]

Book Review: Crazy Rich Asians

Over. The. Top. That’s the best way to describe Kevin Kwan’s novel, Crazy Rich Asians. When I brought this one home from the library, the title was met by raised eyebrows from my family members. And no, the title is not some cutesy inside joke you’ll get once you read the book – it’s pretty […]

Book Review: Movie Star by Lizzie Pepper

Movie Star by Lizzie Pepper…by Hilary Liftin. That’s a mouthful, huh? Upon further inspection you’ll realize that Lizzie Pepper is a fictional movie star, but the novel is written as a faux tell-all by the character. The cover jokes that the novel is “ghostwritten” by Liftin, but she is truly the only author. I started […]
