It's time for a little entertainment talk! I haven't done a book or television post in a while, so I have a lot of goodies to share with you.
The Girl on the Train was such a good read for me. I LOVE nothing more than a good chick book, but in between those reads I enjoy something different. This book is suspenseful and will ensure that you get nothing accomplished other than finishing. ha!
Ladies' Night is the perfect chick lit book. It has a super cute plot with a great little story-line. If chick lit is your thing, you should check out Mary Kay Andrews.
I've read a couple Vicki Courtney books and have really enjoyed them so Ever After popped up while I was searching Amazon. This book is everything you need to know about being married. Vicki does a fabulous job being super honest about real issues that occur in marriage. Unmarried or married-I would recommend it to anyone.
A friend recommended this book to me, so I snagged one to give it a try. Let's Pretend this Never Happened is a memoir that includes really hilarious stories about Jenny's life. I must say there is HORRIBLE language in this book. Think Melanie Shankle books but Rated R. Maybe that's a good description?
I've heard mixed reviews on The Book Thief, so I was a little unsure when I first started reading. I was a huge fan! The book takes place in Nazi Germany and is the story of how books help a foster girl and her family get through a horrible time. I haven't seen the movie, but if you've seen it...let me know what you think.
Who wasn't a Full House fan? Anyone? I was all about some Full House back in the day and I follow Candace Cameron Bure on Instagram. I'm a HUGE fan! I loved this book, Balancing It All. She shares how she balances her priorities in the midst of family time, working, and sharing her faith. She also shares a lot about her life growing up. If you were a D.J. Tanner fan, then I'd highly recommend it!
Marla gave me this book for Mother's Day. It was a sweet book full of feel-good stories about mother and daughter relationships. I read this book during carpool and it was the perfect choice since it was full of short stories. The perfect Mother's Day gift for a mom with a daughter.
Sharp Objects is by Gilliam Flynn (who also wrote Gone Girl). This book is about a small town with potentially a serial killer on the loose. The main character finds herself reporting on all this and she begins identifying a little too much with the victims. I don't want to give anything away, but if you liked Gone Girl, you'll love this one!
After the intense Sharp Objects read, I needed another light hearted book! :) One Plus One is about a single mother who is struggling in just about every aspect of her life. A few things change and her life starts looking up. A great quick, girly read!
I started reading Own Your Life a long time ago and then misplaced it. I just finished and loved it. It's all about how to "own" different aspects of your life...your relationships, your faith, etc. and really make them count. I've read a couple other Sally Clarkson books. She didn't let me down on this one.
I'm pumped about watching Big Brother!! Due to the move, I've missed a couple episodes, but I'm ready to get all caught up! Are there Big Brother fans out there? If so, who are you cheering for already?
Have a great day!
