2019- Books I’ve Read and Reviews

We Were The Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter (1/5)- This book was amazingly complicated, heartbreaking and so hard to put down. Each chapter was was told from the perspective of a different member of the Kurc family starting in Poland at the beginning of WW2.

Cottage by the Sea by Debbie Macomber (1/22)- This book was a easy read that I needed after the previous one. It had some slow moments, but I loved watching the relationships develop, specifically Annie and Keaton and the story was super easy to be invested in. Not sure it was totally realistic but a cute read.

Navy Wife by Debbie Macomber (2/1)- I was on a role with this author and wanted an easy light read. Cute story about love and loss in Navy life.

Navy Husband by Debbie Macomber (2/5)- This was the second story in the book. The actual book is tiny and was an easy read but not really one I’d tell you to read.

Paper Towns by John Green (2/13)- I have had this book on my shelf for so long and finally started it. The young adult novel is full of deep lessons about life and being real. The end was slow for me but I needed to finish it to find out where Margo ended up.

The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena (2/26)- Been sitting on my shelf for ages. The first chapter never got me interested but wow was it a quick easy read.  The book started with me wondering which of the four original characters were to blame for the missing baby.  The book was slow in the middle but the layers discovered at the end were super interesting.

Winter Stroll by Elin Hilderbrand (3/15)- The second of a four book series, I am sucker for an easy read.  Following the Quinn family is easy to follow, with predictable story lines.  There are four children, each with an issue- love, drugs, missing in action and an ex that won’t quit. It’s nothing fascniating but a light read.

Winter Storms by Elin Hilderbrand (3/18)- The third book continues the Quinn story where Kelly and Mitzi reunite and news finally come about Bart and Ava makes big choices. Again, this isn’t brilliant literature but it’s a light easy read.

Turning Point by Danielle Steel (3/23)- 4 doctors from the US. 4 from Paris. Each all fighting different battles in family and for love.  A tragedy starts the story and visiting Paris brings another one.  Easy read where you root for the lust, love and what really matters.

Fighting for Our Forever by Heidi McLaughlin (4/30)- Admittedly, I am completely obsessed with this series. This story is of Ajay, the drummer in Quinn’s band the love of his life Whiskey.  It’s the classic underdog whose trying to winning the girl’s love after a mistake.

The Cliffside Bay Series by Tess Thompson- There is no mystery in this series.  Each book is the love story of the two main characters.  I loved that they built on each other and that it’s an intersection of friends that is the basis for the story lines.  Easy series to read.
