WHAT I'M READING || JULY 2019

Hey there! Just so you know, this post contains affiliate links, which allow me to support my website and writing career. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!


Hello and happy August! I hope this summer had treated you well and that you've read many good books! I certainly have, which is why I'm way behind on publishing reviews! I'm low on time lately (aka always), so let's jump right in with some of what I've read this summer!





LEAVE NO TRACE BY MINDY MEJIA ||

Stars: 3.5

Thoughts: It's interesting, that's for sure. I can't say I've ever read a book with a plot similar to this one. I like the touch of romance throughout the book, and I'm always a fan of twists and turns. If I'm being 100% honest, I read this book at the beginning of summer so I don't remember too much how I felt while reading it (which also means I didn't connect with it like I do with some books). I do know that I enjoyed it, but I'm not dying to read it again.


POWER PLAY BY DANIELLE STEEL

Stars: 5

Thoughts: I've been reading Steel's work quite often lately, and while I've had mixed feelings about some of them, this one was definitely not a miss for me. I'm usually not a fan of too many point-of-views, but Steel nailed the different characters and their own experiences. Fiona was my favorite character; I highly enjoyed her strong sense of self. This book never lacked in drama, but in a good way.


GOODNIGHT NOBODY BY JENNIFER WEINER

Stars: 4.5

Thoughts: This is the second book I've read by Weiner and I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed Who Do You Love? Why? The humor. I laughed-out-loud quite a few times while reading this book, which is rare coming from me. I adored the main character, Kate. She's a mom of three that points out all that's wrong with modern motherhood. She also gets herself tangled in a suburban murder, which is always interesting. Read if you like a good laugh in the face of motherhood and a mystery on top.


TRULY MADLY GUILTY BY LIANE MORIARTY

Stars: 4

Thoughts: I had a lot of people recommend this book to me, and overall, I'm glad I took their advice. This is my first novel by Moriarty and it left me impressed. I turned the pages quickly because I was just dying to know what happened at the cook-out that left such a mark on the guests. The "big secret" shocked me, but not as much as the end. The final few pages even put a tear in the eyes of my pregnant (and hormonal) self.


Let me know if you've read any of these and what you thought of them!
