July 2018 Books

So many of my requested books came in at the library this month and I flew through this stack rather quickly since it was a good lineup! Just a reminder, you may view all of my past book reviews by clicking here.


Then She Was Gone // Lisa Jewell
I loved this book -- it was super creepy but it was one where I was on the edge of my seat to find out what happened! This lady's daughter goes missing and then she finds out what happened to her later in life through a crazy turn of events. Parts of it kind of reminded me of this book that I read not too long ago.

Say You're Sorry // Melinda Leigh
This one was another winner -- the main character's babysitter turns up dead and she ends up taking on the case to prove that her neighbor is innocent of the murder. Definitely a page-turner! 

Look for Me // Lisa Gardner
This one was just alright -- I felt like the story was so dragged out and I found myself just wanting it to end at many points in the story. I powered through to the end, but wouldn't recommend it.

I See You // Clare Mackintosh
I was so excited for this one since I loved this author's other book! This one follows the story of a woman who is riding the subway and notices her own photo in a dating service ad -- she also realizes that women that have been in these ads in previous days later turned up murdered. So creepy but overall a great book! 

UnSweetined // Jodi Sweetin
This book was SO interesting! I've loved reading Candance Cameron Bure's books, so when I discovered that Jodi Sweetin had a book I immediately requested it at the library. 

Losing You // Nicci French
This book was just alright -- I had a hard time powering through it because I wasn't the biggest fan of the main character. 

Magnolia Table // Joanna Gaines
I actually read this book a month or so ago but forgot to recap it in my monthly book review. This book is beautifully written and is filled with gorgeous photography. Definitely a book you want to savor while curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee.

The Other Mother // Carol Goodman
This book felt dark and had some weird undertones to it -- I felt like the overall plot was interesting, but just a strange book. Wouldn't recommend this one.
