May 2018 Books

So many great books were read last month! My creative director brought in a stack of books and I borrowed two of them right away -- one of them ended up being one of the best I've read in awhile! Just a reminder, you may view all of my past book reviews by clicking here.


Girl, Wash Your Face // Rachel Hollis
This book was so good -- I think a lot of times, Christian books like these can be really cheesy or not relatable, but what I loved about Rachel Hollis is that she was so real and down to Earth. Great book for an woman to read!

The Last Mrs. Parrish // Liv Constantine
This book was SO good! It's the story of this girl that befriends a woman at her gym and secretly plots to take over her family and her life. However, the story takes a twist half way through and gets REALLY good! Such a great psychological thriller.

The Joy of Less // Francine Joy
I had high hopes for this book, but definitely enjoyed this one and this one more. None of it really felt like new information to me since I've read a lot of books on this topic in the past couple of years.

I've Got My Eyes on You // Mary Higgins Clark
I'm such a sucker for anything by Mary Higgins Clark -- they keep me guessing and they're always quick, easy reads. This new one was just as good as the rest in her collection.

Lie to Me // J.T. Ellison
This was a quick read and very similar to Gone Girl, which is another favorite book of mine. A man's wife goes missing and he's instantly a suspect -- the end was a little predictable, but overall worth a read!

The Woman in the Window // A.J. Finn
This thriller was good, but a little predictable -- I ended up guessing the ending about 2/3 of the way through the book and I hate when that happens. I love being surprised! This one kind of reminded me of The Girl on the Train -- since it's a story of "did she really see a crime, or didn't she?"

The Wife Between Us // Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
This book was hands-down, one of my favorites! The story had three major twists and each time I literally gasped out loud. Such a great thriller -- I've heard that there's a rumor of a movie coming out, which I would be super excited about! Would highly recommend if you enjoy a good psychological thriller.

The Courage to Soar // Simone Biles
I always love a good Olympic gymnast story! It was so fun to learn about the background of Simone Biles and her journey to the Olympics -- these types of books always make me feel so inspired!
