Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
‘Big Little Lies’ is a book about 3 women and their very relatable paths in life. I was instantly hooked to each woman ad their story. I enjoyed reading the detective interview at the end of each chapter; it definitely built up the ending (which, by the way, was a shock!). It was humorous, endearing, and jaw dropping at times. Loved every page. Would recommend.
Bad Things Happen by Harry Dolan
A debut novel that is interesting and action packed. Filled with plot twists and turn that will keep the reader guessing. A unique read that’s a mystery within a mystery! A book that I would recommend!
Falling into Place by Amy Zhang
A debut novel from a teen author, haunting and sad story about a girl who chooses to deliberately crash her car in an attempt to commit suicide. However, she fails and is hospitalized. The majority of the book reveals what she’s thinking prior to the crash and the true feelings of those who are her friends and acquaintances. Some hard topics teens face are in this novel.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I had read that this book was the best teen book of 2014 and someone had recommended it for my son. I found it tragic and so sad. A tale of girl who has lost her memory of her 15th summer and is clearly suffering.
I wouldn’t recommend this novel for just anyone, but within it’s pages is wisdom, tidbits to make you think and make choices about life. That our actions forever have consequences. Think carefully, tread lightly, and consider what you are doing- before it’s too late.
The Map of Heaven by Eben Alexander, M.D.
This book is interesting because it includes many testimonials from people who have had NDE’s (near death experiences). Dr. Alexander explains different scientific studies on NDEs and elaborates on the results. He also adds brief segments of his own NDE experience. A good, quick read for anyone interested in “life beyond death.”
Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
The romance in this story is what drew me in. To be a “nobody” and gain the interest of a multibillionaire is spectacular. The way there is like a magnetic force between them, they can’t get enough of each other, and they are both willing to make sacrifices to stay with each other is beautiful. The end is heart wrenching, but I’m so glad I have the other books!
Dangerous Pleasure by Lora Leigh
I rally like all of the surprising information in this book, especially the details about “roles” in Saudi Arabia. This book was so thrilling and it had me biting my nails half way through it!
