DNF: Where The Crawdads Sing-wasn’t my cup of tea

I believe that everyone has an opinion of a book that they are reading or read. It can be the most popular book that everyone is ranting about. Saying “This is a must-read book” or “This person rated this book and said it was one the best book out there” That doesn’t mean you should read or like it if you do t want to. 

However, if you are in this book club and everyone agrees to read this book, even though you wouldn’t buy it before, you should really give it a try and if you don’t like then you shouldn’t finish it. Don’t force yourself to read if it’s not for you. Just wait to hear what the others have to say about it.

Ok, here is what I am trying to say, I am in this WONDERFUL book club with sweet ladies. It’s has gotten me out of my comfort zone and all. We are reading Where The Crawdads Sing. I know some of the ladies are loving it, I myself tried to read it as much as I could. The slang was eh and it was just too slow to for me. So I  DNF it. However, I really want to hear what the other ladies think about it.

I really don’t know how book clubs work and all, so I guess you can’t find a book if it wasn’t for you in a  book club. I don’t know 🤷‍♀️. Anyways, I am looking forward to the next book club meeting. 

Ok, I am off my soapbox haha. Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day and week everyone!!!

So so so sorry for the grammar, I type so fast and don’t pay attention

Partner: Mom's Perfect Boyfriend

I got this book in the mail the other day and it comes out on July 16th of this year!! I have read some of it and it's too funny......
A smart romantic comedy about mothers and daughters, and the hilarious consequences of a white lie. 
Crystal has trouble saying no to her lonely, single mother. For 25 years, it wasn't a problem. But when one small mistake leaves Crystal jilted, homeless and unemployed, she has to move back in with the one person who caused it all: her mother.
Soon Crystal is sucked into her mother's vortex, partying with boomers and hawking misshapen marshmallows. Desperate for some independence, she hatches a foolproof plan: get an experimental android to play her mom's "perfect" boyfriend. It's only a matter of time before her mom finds out, and Crystal will never live down the hilarious and disastrous consequences.
Written in an addicting, fast-paced format, Mom's Perfect Boyfriend is a humorous yet deeply honest portrayal about the complicated friendship between mothers and daughters. Because sometimes the people we least want to rely on are those who can help us the most.

Partner:The Lost Letters of William Woolf

I got my 2nd partner book last week........comes out on June 4th!!

About the book:
Lost letters have only one hope for survival...

Inside the walls of the Dead Letters Depot, letter detectives work to solve mysteries. They study missing zip codes, illegible handwriting, rain-smudged ink, lost address labels, torn packages, forgotten street names—all the many twists of fate behind missed birthdays, broken hearts, unheard confessions, pointless accusations, unpaid bills, unanswered prayers. Their mission is to unite lost mail with its intended recipients.

But when letters arrive addressed simply to “My Great Love,” longtime letter detective William Woolf faces his greatest mystery to date. Written by a woman to the soulmate she hasn’t met yet, the missives capture William’s heart in ways he didn’t know possible. Soon, he finds himself torn between the realities of his own marriage and his world of letters, and his quest to follow the clues becomes a life-changing journey of love, hope, and courage.

From Irish author Helen Cullen, The Lost Letters of William Woolf is an enchanting novel about the resilience of the human heart and the complex ideas we hold about love—and a passionate ode to the art of letter writing.

Goodreads Giveaway WINNER!!!!

So I won my 2nd Goodreads giveaway!!!

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

Happy pub day.........

To these authors. They came out TODAY (May 7th). Go find them and read them!!!
 To find her way, she must abandon everything she loves…

As a child, Merrow Shawe believes she is born of the sea: strong, joyous, and wild. Her beloved home is Horseshoe Cliff, a small farm on the coast of Northern California where she spends her days exploring fog-cloaked bluffs, swimming in the cove, and basking in the light of golden sunsets as her father entertains her with fantastical stories. It is an enchanting childhood, but it is not without hardship—the mystery of Merrow’s mother’s death haunts her, as does the increasingly senseless cruelty of her older brother, Bear.

Then, like sea glass carried from a distant land, Amir arrives in Merrow’s life. He’s been tossed about from India to New York City and now to Horseshoe Cliff, to stay with her family. Merrow is immediately drawn to his spirit, his passion, and his resilience in the face of Bear’s viciousness. Together they embrace their love of the sea, and their growing love for each other.

But the ocean holds secrets in its darkest depths. When tragedy strikes, Merrow is forced to question whether Amir is really the person she believed him to be. In order to escape the danger she finds herself in and find her own path forward, she must let go of the only home she’s ever known, and the only boy she’s ever loved.... 

The internationally bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrishfollows that success with an addictive novel filled with shocking twists about the aftermath of a brutal high-society murder.

Dr. Kate English has it all. Not only is she the heiress to a large fortune; she has a gorgeous husband and daughter, a high-flying career, and a beautiful home anyone would envy.

But all that changes the night Kate’s mother, Lily, is found dead, brutally murdered in her own home. Heartbroken and distraught, Kate reaches out to her estranged best friend, Blaire Barrington, who rushes to her side for the funeral, where the years of distance between them are forgotten in a moment.

That evening, Kate’s grief turns to horror when she receives an anonymous text: You think you’re sad now, just wait. By the time I’m finished with you, you’ll wish you had been buried today. More than ever, Kate needs her old friend’s help.
Once Blaire decides to take the investigation into her own hands, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems in Baltimore high society. As infidelity, lies, and betrayals come to light, and tensions rise to a boiling point, she begins to alienate Kate’s friends and relatives with her relentless, accusatory questions, as she tries to find Lily’s killer. The murderer could be anyone—friend, neighbor, loved one. But whoever it is, it’s clear that Kate is next on their list. . .
In The Last Time I Saw You, Liv Constantine takes the lightning pace of The Last Mrs. Parrish and raises the stakes, creating an exquisitely tension-filled and absorbing tale of psychological suspense in which innocent lives—and one woman’s sanity—hang in the balance.

Book review: You, Me and The Sea

I received an advance copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway! This is also my very 1st book by Meg Donohue. I will be sure to read her other books very soon!

I absolutely loved this book. I couldn’t put this book down! It was a real page-turner. There was one character that I really didn’t like, he was so hateful to the others in the book, but you always have to have a villain in books like in the movies.

It’s a really, really good book and I hope y’all will enjoy it as much as I did

Comes out on Tuesday, May 7th

I give this book:
