This Close to Okay

It’s rare for me to get so lost in a book that I feel compelled to stay up past midnight just to finish it. But that’s exactly what happened here. This Close to Okay is uniquely written, has a powerful storyline, and leaves you wanting just a little bit more. I’ve loved reading since IContinue reading “This Close to Okay”

The Flight Attendant

Until a few weeks ago, I had no idea that this book existed. That wouldn’t be unusual because there are so, so many books out there – but this genre is right up my alley. My friend introduced me to the book – and series on HBO – and I knew I had to checkContinue reading “The Flight Attendant”

January Bites

Goodbye dumpster fire that was 2020! We were all dealt a pretty rough hand last year, and I’m glad to finally put it in the past. Plus, it felt like 2020 was about 20 years long! Anyone else? I’m grateful for a new year, a fresh start, and the hope that is 2021. I haveContinue reading “January Bites”

Bonus Bite: In a Holidaze

I thought I’d do something a little special (and extra) for Christmas. I’m a sucker for traditions and found a book that’s cute, fun, and super light for the holiday season. I think the decorations, scented candles, and homemade cookies are softening me a little bit – because I’d love to have the fairy taleContinue reading “Bonus Bite: In a Holidaze”

This Time Next Year

Let me start by saying that I wouldn’t categorize this book as a Romance, which I find to be pretty off-putting. When I think of romance, I picture a Danielle Steel drugstore paperback with little substance. Or one of Nicholas Sparks’ books that’s sure to put you to sleep mid-page. Or even one of thoseContinue reading “This Time Next Year”

The Third Wife

The first thriller I ever read was Carrie by Stephen King, although that probably falls more in the horror/fantastical genre. I read through many of his other books and then branched out to Karin Slaughter, Kate White, Megan Miranda, Riley Sage, Lisa Jewell, and several others. They all bring a special flair to the table.Continue reading “The Third Wife”

The Rise & Fall of Theranos

The full account of Theranos and its founder Elizabeth Holmes is so intriguing and unfathomable to me and I really went down a rabbit hole with everything. Not for the first time, it made me wonder if my calling should be in investigative journalism instead of marketing. I was entirely impressed with the work ofContinue reading “The Rise & Fall of Theranos”

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone

I first learned about this book when I saw Melissa Urban (co-creator of The Whole 30) post a photo of it on her Instagram. The subtitle intrigued me, yet it took me over a year to actually borrow it from the library and six weeks to finish all 432 pages. This is one of thoseContinue reading “Maybe You Should Talk to Someone”

December Bites

2020 has for sure been something out of a science fiction novel. When strolling through the bookstore, you might even come across a handful of books discussing COVID-19, and to that, I say: too soon. Check out everything I’m Reading, Loving, and Sipping. I wish you all peace, love, and happiness this winter season. HappyContinue reading “December Bites”

Leaving Time

When I was a junior in high school, I hung out in the library A LOT – during study hall if I could get a pass, and always during lunch. My friends and I would sit in the back pretending to do work, but really eating snacks and chatting about anything but school. In booksContinue reading “Leaving Time”
