    what to read

    So, over the last year, I have been stockpiling book recommendations. They run the gamut. Some are new-ish. Others have been out for awhile. They are all GOOD. (You will see a ton of mystery/thrillers, because that was what my book club was into last year.) Find out what to read here: Little Fires Everywhere: Celeste […]

  • The Girls

    Review of The Girls - Missalaneyus

    The Girls by Emma Cline is easily one of the most buzzed about books of the summer. I bought it a few weeks ago and finally cracked it open on our family vacation. The story centers around Evie, who is drawn into a cult in the late 60’s. Inspired by Charles Manson and the murders his […]

    Crazy Rich Asians - Missalaneyus

    So, I’m a little late to the Crazy Rich Asians party. This book was recommended to me about a year ago by a friend, and I snapped it up pretty quickly. Then, I sort of forgot I had it – despite the fact that it’s been buzzed about for a while. And, I’m pleased to report […]

  • Fairy Tale Girl

    the fairy tale girl

    My mom gifted me The Fairy Tale Girl by Susan Branch about a month or two ago. I finished it towards the end of May and have to say it was absolutely delightful. The story is auto-biographical, sharing a look into Susan’s childhood and early adult life. It kicks off with the ending of her marriage […]

  • Jennifer Greene

    I’ve confessed it here before, but for years, (like over 20) I have loved romance novels. In middle school, I read Phyllis Whitney and Nora Roberts all the time, which basically ruined men for me. Then, as I got older, I read Susan Elizabeth Philips and Jennifer Cruisie, because there characters were pretty funny. Flash forward […]

  • Book Review: Why Not Me

    why not me mindy kaling

    It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Mindy Kaling. I loved her first book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, and so, as you can imagine, I was excited to pick up Why Not Me?. In a nutshell, this book picks up where the other left off. Her first talked a lot about lessons […]
