May Wrap Up

What I read this month:

  • The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My only nonfiction pick this month and by far one of the best I’ve read all year. Eye-opening and powerful, I highly recommend tuning into the audiobook and taking notes.
  • The Overnight Guest ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ WOW. I really don’t even know what to say. You WILL NOT be expecting the twist. This is a thriller to snuggle up with on a rainy day.
  • The Lying Club ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Rich kids, drugs, a sexual predator and a mother’s protection. The truth will make you sick to your stomach but the ending might warm your heart. I REALLY liked this one.
  • The Night She Disappeared ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I will never stop loving Lisa Jewell. She is sick, twisted and wonderful. Listen to and read all of her books. That is all.
  • Twenty Years Later ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I started listening to this on a whim and could. Not. Stop. Who doesn’t love a good cold case solved with new DNA technology.
  • The Good Sister ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sally Hepworth has a way with characters that makes you fall completely in love with some and fully despise others. Her storytelling of inter-familial relationships is so engrossing I devour everything she writes in one sitting. This one didn’t disappoint.
  • This Is How I Lied ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Interesting cast of characters. I’d recommend for a quick whodunnit.
  • On a Quiet Street ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I almost didn’t finish this one. I could not figure out the plot but when I did: I had to know what happened.
  • Confessions on the 7:45 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Cheating husbands, a nanny and a hit man? I enjoyed my first Lisa Unger novel and might pick up another next month.
  • My Darling Husband ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A man being driven to hold a family hostage to pay for his child’s life saving medical procedure? The plot of this novel isn’t far off from the ugly reality medical costs and debt can create. I loved the suspense Kimberly Belle creates and the underlying message of the real crisis we are currently facing with the U.S. healthcare system.

My favorite?
