Oh, and I actually already featured The Favorite Sister on my Instagram because it’s the first book of the BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge (#SRC2018)…..and I was lucky enough to have been chosen as one of their influencers for this year! YAY! That means I’ll be highlighting ALL of their picks over the next 4 months – I can’t wait. You can still sign up for the challenge ~ it’s a lot of fun and there are some great titles to read along with this year! Thanks to Booksparks and PopSugar for this free review copy!

And here is what I’ve been reading lately……..

Thanks to the publishers for these free review copies!


If you like smart, domestic fiction, The Ones We Choose is a great choice! Science and motherhood and a little family mystery adds up to a fast-paced intelligent read.


Mary Kay Andrews is the queen of beach books in my world, and The High Tide Club is definitely one of my favorites of hers! Family historical mystery and a private coastal island and a whole lot of southern charm. Loved it!


EEEEK! This one is a domestic thriller that is NOT for anyone who has parenting anxiety, but for those who can handle it, it’s a fast-paced and enthralling choice. The Perfect Mother feeds into every mother’s worst nightmare and features a diverse cast of new Brooklyn moms.


This one is just ADORABLE! It may technically be labeled as YA, but all I can say is that I know more adults than teens who have read Menyon’s first book When Dimple Met Rishi, and From Twinkle with Love is just as sweet. It’s out on May 22nd!

And if you were wondering what I did for Mothers’ Day…….


Last thing for today – have you seen my latest pieces on Definitely go take a look at what I’ve been up to there!
