Amy & Roger's Epic Detour (Matson)

“Tomorrow will be better.” “But what if it’s not?” I asked. “Then you say it again tomorrow. Because it might be. You never know, right? At some point, tomorrow will be better.”

Starsight - Skyward #2 (Sanderson)

“You know the worst part about being in charge, Spin?” “No, sir.” “Perspective. When you’re young, you can assume that everyone older than you has life figured out. Once you get command yourself, you realize we’re all just the same kids wearing older bodies.”

Meet Me on Love Lane (Bocci)

I was crying happy tears as I finished this. What a perfect example of a childhood friends-to-lovers/ kinda second chance romance. Hands down, my heart hasn’t felt this full and melted in a while.

Flight (Alexie)

Flight is a story about a half-Native American foster kid, who has named himself after his face ache. “Zits,” has struggled through the foster system since he was eight years old. He feels angry, betrayed, and alone.

Mary Poppins (Travers)

It was quite enjoyable to revisit the Mary Poppins of my youth anew through the P.L. Travers novel, which I never read as a child. I found many of the same lovable characters and stories I remembered from the Disney movie, as well as even more wonderfully funny, ironic, and whimsical adventures.

Be Careful What You Wish For (Archer)

Book 4 of the Clifton Chronicles picks up right where book 3 left off...sadly I read book 3 in 2016. Why did I not continue with the series then, I don’t know, and I wish I had as, although the characters are all familiar to me, I can’t really remember their stories and entirely how we got to where we are now.

The Handmaid's Tale (Atwood)

What a chilling and enthralling dystopian future Margaret Atwood has imagined in this novel! The main character, Offred is a “handmaid," a woman who has been forced to serve in the household of a high-ranking infertile couple as a surrogate.

The Whisper of War (Kelly)

I loved this book...If you enjoy historical fiction, I believe you will enjoy this book. The audio (available on CD and through Overdrive/Libby) was excellent!

The Giver of Stars (Moyes)

I really liked this book...but I think overall, I liked “The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek” a tad bit better. I know there is some controversy surrounding this title, and whether or not the idea(s) were plagiarized—it’s hard to tell. There are some similarities.

Hope on the Inside (Bostwick)

I generally love Marie Bostwick’s books...I liked this one but didn’t LOVE it. Although not Christian Fiction, I would generally characterize Bostwick’s books as being “clean reads”...this one fell just short of being able to call it that, which seemed uncharacteristic for her.

The Thief of Lanwyn Manor (Ladd)

I really enjoyed this story, with just enough mystery to keep the reader wondering who was behind all the strange things that were happening, but also with enough clues that, although you couldn’t be sure certain persons were the culprit, you were pretty sure they were at least involved, and just a dash of romance!
