We Were Mothers by Katie Sise

I purchased this book from Amazon to read with @saltwaterreads. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 We Were Mothers by Katie Sise. In the beginning of this book I was feeling a bit frustrated about the time and the people arrangement of chapters but it quickly meshed together and I overcame that. In idyllic Ravendale everyone must be seen as “the perfect family”. Your kids must be smarter, your spouses must work harder, and every wife must be a stay a home mom, until one day at a twin’s birthday the dark, dirty secrets of the people inside of this tiny town slowly begin to unravel and when they surface the only people who will walk away are able to say, “Because we were mothers.” I love how each character pulled you into their own world and you experienced things from where they stood.

#fashionvictim by Amina Akhtar

I purchased this book in my @bookofthemonth box and read it with my bestie @mycornerforbooksand. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 #fashionvictim by Amina Akhtar. Who knew the world of fashion was such a cut-throat industry. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ The cover of this book says it all Bitches get stitches……..people die…….heads will roll….and magazines will still get published and publicity the more of it the better the sales. So even bad publicity is better than none. Anya is obsessed with Sarah and Sarah is obsessed with being Queen Bee and Celia had to manage them all. What a shocking story of twists and turns and death.

Only Human by Sylvain Neuvel

I purchased this book from Half Priced Books to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Only Human by Sylvain Neuvel. I finished reading The Themis Files. Only Human is the last book of the trilogy and I put it off as long as I could. I wasn’t ready for it to be over. Although Eva has grown up and we learned Themis isn’t the only robot in the universe, I was still sad to see it all end. This one was probably the best book of the series. We watch Eva blossom a grown woman and Rose make choices that will not only effect her life but the entire world’s views.

All the mystery, legend and magic of this island are very real to her and others from Sparrow, but once an outsider arrives he finds herself trying to explain just how cursed the town is, but he isn’t believing her. For over 2 centuries the town has been cursed by sisters who were drowned on their birthday, executed for witchcraft. Bo soon finds out just how real the curse is and has no idea how to react.

I must say I had the biggest part of the twist figured out pretty early in this book. Although I was intrigued enough by the little details to continue to read until the end.
