Say You Still Love Me

Say You Still Love Me was such a good read.
This story follows Piper Calloway, a 29 year old woman working her way up the corporate ladder of her fathers company.
Piper spent a summer as a counselor at Camp Wawa When she was sixteen years old.
Say You Still Love Me goes back and forth between Pipers life today , and that summer that changed her life forever….

I had all the feelings while reading this book. It was incredibly relatable and so wonderful. I never got to experience summer camp, so it was pretty cool to read about it.
I can’t wait to read more by KA Tucker.

Thank you so much #netgalley and #Atria for the advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.


I came across another bloggers post that was a Top Ten Tuesday post, and I really liked it so I decided to post one as well. Top Ten Tuesday was started by That Artsy Reader Girl! This weeks Subject is Top Ten Books on my TBR that I am avoiding. I can’t really say that I’m avoiding these books, but they have definitely been on my TBR for a ridiculous amount of time. Without further ado , here are ten books that I own and are still on my TBR.

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
Gail Honeyman

Eleanor, Eleanor, Eleanor. This is probably the most recommended book that I have not read yet. I did start reading it back in January but it just did not click with me. I’m not sure when the appropriate time to read this one will be. I probably just need to lock myself in a room and go for it.

If someone asks you how you are, you are meant to say FINE. You are not meant to say that you cried yourself to sleep last night because you hadn’t spoken to another person for two consecutive days. FINE is what you say.

The Dreamers
Karen Thompson Walker

The Dreamers received a mixed bag of reviews. I know a handful of readers who absolutely loved it, and a few that despised it and a couple that were in between. I personally haven’t spent much time reading dystopian novels, so I’m a little skeptical here.

They’ve slept…the sleep of bad dreams and good dreams, the dreams they’ve shared and the dreams they haven’t, and all the dreams they never remembered and never would, so many of which have traveled through their minds while their two heads have lain not more than a few inches apart.

Where’d You Go, Bernadette
Maria Semple

Where did Bernadette go? To the bottom of my TBR, never to be read again…. I don’t know what my beef is with this one, I just haven’t read it yet. Should I wait and see the movie too?

I felt so alone in this world, and so loved at the same time.

The Great Alone
Kristin Hannah

There seems to be a Kristin Hannah army that is constantly telling my to read this and all of her other books. I’m too afraid that it won’t live up to the hype.

Books are the mile markers of my life. Some people have family photos or home movies to record their past. I’ve got books. Characters. For as long as I can remember, books have been my safe place

Once Upon a River
Diane Setterfield

I received this book from a friend of mine and I honestly don’t even know what it’s about. I feel like I need to do a buddy read for it. Anyone down ?

It was better to tell such stories close to the river than in a drawing room. Words accumulate indoors, trapped by walls and ceilings. The weight of what has been said can lie heavily on what might yet be said and suffocate it. By the river the air carries the story on a journey: one sentence drifts away and makes way for the next.

The Last Mrs Parrish
Liv Constantine

I know. I KNOW. I’ll get to it, I promise.

Everything had begun with such promise. And then, like a windshield chipped by a tiny pebble, the chip turned into deep cracks that spread until

After You
Jojo Moyes

I just can’t right now. I’m still not over it. My Heart is broken. I just loved Will so much. I’m not emotionally ready.

I loved a man who had opened up a world to me but hadn’t loved me enough to stay in

Jojo Moyes – After You

Anna Karenina
Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina… enough said.

The Kite Runner
Khaled Hosseini

I tried. I failed. I tried again. I quit. I will try again eventually.

It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime…

Khaled Hosseini , The Kite Runner

The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle
Stuart Turton

I’ve seen this all over bookstagram and goodreads. I bought the Audiobook and haven’t had time to listen yet.

So as you can see, I have quite a few books to read! I am participating in #fallforyourshelf on Bookstagram. This hashtag was started by Shelby @booksonthebrain_ —- Join Us!

The First Rule of Fight Club…

I need to talk about it. I’m already breaking the rules. I have loved Fight Club for many years, but I recently did a re-read of the book and watched the movie right after. There are so many little details that young me did not catch the first few times around. My husband had NEVER seen the movie so I had fun watching him watch it for the first time.

Fight Club centers around an anonymous Narrator who works as a recall specialist and suffers from insomnia. To feel better about his life He starts visiting support groups for people with terminal illnesses and other issues. While at these support groups he meets Marla Singer, another faker, and begins to not benefit from the groups.

While on vacation the narrator meets Tyler Durden – some events lead to them living together and eventually starting a Fight Club. These are the rules:

  1. You don’t talk about fight club.
  2. You don’t talk about fight club.
  3. When someone says stop, or goes limp, the fight is over.[note 1]
  4. Only two guys to a fight.
  5. One fight at a time.
  6. They fight without shirts or shoes.
  7. The fights go on as long as they have to.
  8. If this is your first night at fight club, you have to fight.

As the fight Club begins to get nationwide attention Tyler starts an alternative group called Project Mayhem and recruits fight club members to spread his anti-consumerist ideas. The rules are as follows:

  1. You don’t ask questions.
  2. You don’t ask questions.
  3. No excuses.
  4. No lies.
  5. You have to trust Tyler.

Favorite Books of 2019

The Silent Patient – Alex Michaelides

I read The Silent Patient in January of this year. It was my very first Book Of The Month book, and I could not have picked a better one.

This story follows Theo, who is a psychotherapist, and Alicia who randomly shot and killed her husband and has not spoken since. Throughout the book, Theo is trying to get Alicia to speak and find out why she murdered her husband. Because this is a mystery/thriller I will not go into any more detail.

This book has the BEST plot twist in any thriller that I have read so far, I definitely did not see it coming.

You can purchase this book here.
