Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

I purchased this book from @bookofthemonth to #buddyread with my bestie @mycornerforbooksand. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Lock Every Door by Riley Sager. Jules Larsen grew up reading a book her and her sister were determined to see come true, and when Jules gets an offer to live in the very building the book takes place she jumps at the chance. Despite her best friend’s warning, the ridiculous rules of the building, and her sketchy past Jules takes residence as an apartment sitter in the Historic Bartholomew building in Manhattan. She soon finds out that if an offer is too good to be true, then it really is a set up, but that $12,000 seemed too good to turn down. What she gets instead of money is a life lesson learned the hard way.

The Guestbook by Andrea Hurst

I purchased this book from Amazon to read with The Well Read Ladies Bookclub. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 The Guestbook Book One in The Madrona Island Trilogy by Andrea Hurst. This was a fun, light read. It was heart warming and full of fluff. Like reading a Hallmark movie in its pages.

Since her Grandmother passed away Lily is only left with a Guestbook and a few recipes to learn how to continue the converted B and B.

Mama Bear Apologetics by Hillary Morgan Ferrer

I purchased this book from Amazon to read with my sister. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Mama Bear Apologetics by Hillary Morgan Ferrer. In a world so full of confusion about what is right and what is wrong this book will help Mothers guide their children to study The Bible and allow them to form their own beliefs of what is right and what is wrong. While this teaching was a little “Old Testament” to my personal beliefs I still found the references helpful.

American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins

I purchased this book from @bookofthemonth to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. There was so much controversy about this book on Instagram a while back so of course, I had to know. If a book is good enough to gain bad publicity then I have to read it to find out why. I didn’t find anything wrong with the book. It is written well. The book begins with the cartel murdering an entire family leaving only two survivors. Those two survivors strive to get out of reach of the cartel and that means leaving Acapulco and heading North. The road is filled with adventure and miscreants and rough times especially for a mother trying to get her only surviving child, an eight year old boy, to safety. The characters are likeable and you become invested in their future quickly.

Dread Nation by Justina Ireland

I purchased this book from Barnes & Noble to read with my bestie Christina. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Dread Nation by Justina Ireland. The Undead and Politics and an Old, New American War with fiesty, fighting females striving to find a place of freedom. This new world creates the same problems of the old world and hinges very much on the problems our world faces today. A very unique spin on a Zombie book I would have never read if Kendra hadn’t said I had too!

I purchased this book from Amazon to read with my sister. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 From Grouchy to Great: Finding Joy in the Journey of Motherhood by Ruth Schwenk. As a Mom of six kids ages ranging from 6 to 24 I will say it’s easy to get grouchy, crabby, and frustrated, and you know what….the kids will survive it and so will you.
