Books Lately

Hi friends! I wanted to take a few minutes and share some books lately that I have been loving.

The Year We Fell Down: I loved this book. It was an easy read about two people going through a life altering experience separately but together they help each other through the hard times. It is currently free on amazon kindle! HURRY!


The Next Always. This was our book club book for May and I loved it! I read it in a weekend and I’ve since read the companion books.  I loved the ease of the book and the story. Nora Roberts books always are a fun read.

The Royal We. I have loved the website, the fug girls for YEARS! It was one of the first sites I read daily. I was also probably the last person to know they had books. So I downloaded all 3 and this one I read first. It’s about a girl who falls in love with a prince and she isn’t royalty. Her life becomes a media storm. Sound familiar? It’s pretty fantastic! Perfect summer read!


Drinking and Dating

I read Brandi Glanville’s first book, Drinking and Tweeting on a flight. I couldn’t put it down. Many months later I remembered I had her second book downloaded and it was a quick and funny weekend read. I suggest both of her books if you are looking for something fun and also to read about people you’ve probably read about in gossip mags.
