Win The Day

I’ve read many books on habits and productivity because the reinforcement of common themes is always appreciated and needed. About three weeks ago I started a new old job (read more about that here) and that meant commuting to the office, which I haven’t done in about 9 months. When searching for a new bookContinue reading “Win The Day”

The Marriage Pact

I enjoy a good cult story. I thought The Sixes by Kate White was a great read – actually, that novel prompted me to read all of White’s books back to back. To be honest, as soon as I started reading The Marriage Pact, I didn’t really know where it was going. It started outContinue reading “The Marriage Pact”

What Color Is Your Parachute?

Warning: This post is LONG and includes highlights from my personal job search. If you’re just here to see if you should get the book, I’ll save you some time: Buy. It. Now. This story begins in late September 2020. I had just left a really great company for what I thought was a dreamContinue reading “What Color Is Your Parachute?”

The Last Thing He Told Me

I had a stepfather once. It was awful. Which is why this book felt so relatable – in part – and also hard to get through. The summer I was eight years old, my granny died and we abruptly moved into a new house with my mom’s soon-to-be husband. At the time, it was aContinue reading “The Last Thing He Told Me”

Behind Her Eyes

WARNING: This review has spoilers. So, if you haven’t read the book or watched the Netflix limited series of the same name, you may want to skip it. ‘What the actual f*$%!?” was the phrase I yelled out loud in my car back in 2017 when this audiobook first wrapped up. I was NOT havingContinue reading “Behind Her Eyes”

Too Good to be True

There are usually two sides or versions of the truth. Sometimes there are three. Too Good to be True is an engaging story that leads you down a few dead ends before ending with the truth. Kind of like a funhouse room of mirrors or one of those pitch black Halloween mazes. I was ableContinue reading “Too Good to be True”

April Bites

Last month I took a much needed 10-day road trip to Colorado. It was fun and relaxing (for the most part), and I can now say that I’ve been to 29 states in the U.S. When I wasn’t traveling, I was doing a lot of career soul-searching, reading, and YouTube-ing. So, with all that, IContinue reading “April Bites”

The Lost Apothecary

Don’t judge a book by its cover. I know this and still picked up The Lost Apothecary because the cover was strikingly beautiful. My last fantasy read was The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and I was captivated by the story and her descriptive writing style – I felt like a character in the book,Continue reading “The Lost Apothecary”

Your Fully Charged Life

A coincidence is a sort of random accidental event that feels like it was meant to happen. Say, for instance, that you’re reading a book and come across the name Mary and 10 seconds later your phone rings and it’s your cousin Mary, who you haven’t talked to in ages. Things like that happen frequently,Continue reading “Your Fully Charged Life”

The Dark Lake

Some thrillers keep you engaged with dialogue and plot twists – they’re good, easy reads, and many times, forgettable. But sometimes you stumble upon a gem – the likes of Karin Slaughter and Gregg Olsen. The dialogue and scenes are complex and intricate, they slow you down so you’re able to soak everything in andContinue reading “The Dark Lake”
