I’m back! Instead of giving you some long-winded excuse-filled post about where I’ve been and why I ghosted this blog, I’m just going to dive in. Cool? Cool.
Today I’m bringing you another round of book reviews. As it’s no surprise, I love reading and have quite the collection building up. Full disclosure here – I read these three books a couple months ago and I just happened to find them in a drawer recently. I really enjoyed all three, so I figured I would jot these down for you.
The Wives by Tarryn Fisher
You guys, this book will suck you right in. This is a fast-paced suspenseful novel that will keep you on your toes and will leave you wanting more. In this book, you follow along Thursday (the narrator) and her life being married to a polygamist. She knows NOTHING about the other two wives, until one day it all changes. I truly don’t want to give anymore details because it’s just so good. It’s not what you expect and neither is Thursday. This book does touch on mature issues/situations if that bothers you. *Trigger warning: domestic abuse, miscarriage, mental health issues*
Best Day Ever by Kaira Rouda
I will admit that it took a little while for me to get into this book. I don’t know if I was just too tired by the time I opened it or what but it finally picked up for me a few chapters in. In this novel we meet Paul Strom who seemingly has it all. Married to the beautiful Mia, has a big perfect house, two healthy boys, and a great career. He’s planned a lovely romantic getaway for himself and Mia at their lake house and has promised her the “best day ever”. You quickly find out that Paul’s life isn’t so perfect and his marriage most certainly is not. Even with the slow start, I would still recommend this book.
The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen
This book has been floating around for quite some time and I’m not surprised. It’s a real page turner and I’m all here for it. You will start to read this and make assumptions galore. You’ll think you’re reading about a jealous ex-wife and this is some crazy wicked love triangle. DO NOT ASSUME. It’s chilling and dark and so much more. Highly recommend!
During this crazy time we’re all living in right now, there’s something comforting about having a glass of wine, getting cozy and picking up a good book to read. I know we are all stressed and afraid of the unknown, so why not escape the real world for a bit?
