Do you have that favorite author that you can always go back to? Like, you need a mental vacation so you pick up that one author that’s enjoyable but not going to ruin your life? Mine’s Sandra Brown.

The Devil in the White City, Erik Larson

The Devil in the White City reads like a genius fiction but it actually based entirely on fact. It’s the story of  Chicago being picked to host the world fair in 1892, how against all odds it came together, and about a murderer living in the midst of the chaos.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

If you’re hip with the interwebs and like to consider yourself in touch with the book community, you’ve probably heard of The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s one of those novels that everyone says you should read, and it’s the next 1984, and it’s brilliant, and you just kept putting it off until you finally picked it up at the library two weeks ago. Or is that just me?

Devil’s Knot, Mara Leveritt

If you became emotionally involved while listening to Serial or watching Making a Murderer then you have to read Leveritt’s Devil’s Knot. I finished it two weeks ago and it still has me fired up.

A Note

Long time no see! I promise that it isn’t because I forgot about you, to try to make a very long story short I haven’t had internet for about three and a half weeks. Part of me is ok with that because no Netflix means even more reading, which I didn’t think was possible, and part of me is not ok with that because I’ve finished so many incredible books and I want to share them with y’all! I’ve been writing the reviews but I’m not tryna’ post them from my phone so be prepared for an influx of posts starting on Tuesday.

Here’s a little sneak peak at what you can expect;

Devil’s Knot

The Handmaid’s Tale

Devil in the White City

Sandra Brown (there are several)

Strangers on a Train (the book)

And way more! I don’t want to give them all away, suspense is half the fun, but hopefully this little snip will convince you not to give up on me. If there’s anything you think I should read let me know and I’ll ad it to my list.

I promise to get back to you soon. Thanks for all the love!
