Book Review: Campaign Widows

As we approach the most important election this country has ever held, to say things are politically charged would be a gross understatement. I’m sure I’m not alone in that I feel torn between the need to stay informed on all things political and the desire to hide under the covers, pretending it’s not happening. […]

Book Review: Salt in My Soul

A month or two ago, I finished a powerful memoir that had been on my to-be-read list before it even came out.  But it was a read I needed to sit with. As much as it shook me to my core—tears during the last several chapters included—I couldn’t just run to my computer and type […]

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.

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: A Small Indiscretion

If you follow me on Instagram (if not, why don’t you?!) then you probably saw my post about “Blind Date with a Book” a while back. If you haven’t heard about it yet, Blind Date with a Book is a new phenomenon in which you purchase a book that is covered with brown paper. There […]

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 […]
