The Friends We Keep by Jane Green

I really like Jane Green's novels and I have the rest of her novels that I haven't already read on my TBR list. I really liked this novel. It was sometimes hard to keep with the alternating characters and story lines but overall I really liked it. I rated it 4 stars on Goodreads.
When You Read This by Mary Adkins

I didn't really enjoy this novel as much as I thought I would. It was a novel told through letters, e-mails, etc. and I normally love those types of novels but this one was kind of blah for me. I rated it 2 stars on Goodreads.
Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis

I really enjoyed this novel, just like I enjoyed Girl, Wash Your Face. I love her books and I find that I get a lot out of them. I rated this book 4 stars.
Shamed by Linda Castillo

This is the 11th novel in the Kate Burkholder series. I love this mystery series. I came across this series after watching a Lifetime movie which was based off the first novel in the series. I fini…

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

This is Liane Moriarty's latest novel and I rated it 3 stars on Goodreads. I really enjoyed this book, although it wasn't my favorite novel of hers. If you like her other novels, I definitely recommend reading this one as well.
 The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory

I had really high hopes for this book. I originally thought it was a sequel to The Wedding Date which I read in May and it wasn't. It featured some of the same characters but the main characters from The Wedding Date were only mentioned a few times in this book and weren't the main characters in this book. I did enjoy this book and I rated it 3 stars.
There's Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon

I really enjoyed this book. This was the third book by Sandhya Menon I read this year and this is her latest release. I really enjoyed the story line and the characters in this book, especially the two main characters. I rated this book 3 stars.
The Bride Test by Helen Hoang

I re…

Friday Favorites: June 28, 2019

1. Graduations
My niece O, graduated from middle school on Monday and my nephew N graduated from elementary school on Monday. I can't believe they are going into high school and middle school, respectively. It feels like just yesterday I was holding them for the first time after they were born. I'm so very proud of them and I know that they are going to do great things in middle & high school.

What's Up Wednesday: June 2019 Edition

Sunday: I went out to dinner with my best friend and her son. We went to Red Lobster. My friend and I split an appetizer and then I had the crab linguine for my entree. Monday: Tacos! Tuesday: Stuffed peppers and beets I'm not sure about the rest of the week.
What I'm Reminiscing About...
I feel like my answer to this question is the same for every month during the Summer. I reminisce a lot about the trips we took to the lake every Summer. We would go to this lake for a week that was a few hours from our house. To this day, it is still my favorite place on Earth. I also reminisce about all my trips back to NY to visit my family during the Summer months.

Spending time with my mom, cuddles with my cats, reading, making & watching planner Youtube videos, re-watching Beverly Hills 90210 from the beginning.
