Recent Reads:: v.3

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty
  • After finishing Big Little Lies, I couldn't wait to dive into this book. I'll admit, it took me a while to get into this one. There were so many characters and I didn't like how long it took to figure out how they were all connected. However, once I found out what the husband's secret actually was, I had a hard time putting the book down! The secret is huge, and leaves you wanting to know more. I loved the epilogue at the end too, so if you read this book be sure not to skip that part! I recommend this book.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
  • This book had me hooked from the start! The main character is an alcoholic who feels she has zero self worth. She becomes entangled in a murder investigation after witnessing something on her daily train commute. The way she pieces together her "drunken" memories to ultimately solve the murder case kept me turning the pages. I had several different theories on how this book would end and they were all wrong! I am eager to see how this book is adapted into a movie next year. I recommend this book.
Oh! You Pretty Things by Shanna Mahin
  • Honestly, I just couldn't get into this book. I made it about halfway through and gave up. I can't pinpoint exactly what I didn't like about it, but it just wasn't my kind of book. Since I have a list of about 30 books that I want to read right now, I figured I wouldn't waste my time finishing one that I wasn't really enjoying. Maybe someday I'll give it another shot. I don't recommend this book.
The Good Girl
  • I listened to this one on audio during my daily commute and really enjoyed it. I found myself listening to it while getting ready in the mornings, during my lunch breaks, and on evening strolls in the park. I was hooked from the first chapter and needed to know what happened. Mia was abducted by a guy she met in a bar. When she returns, she is not the same person. She now goes by Chloe and has no memory of what happened. The story works backwards to solve the mystery of what happened, and I can tell you it's a good one! I definitely recommend this book.
