Everything I Never Told You – Celeste Ng // I loved this book. Loved loved loved it. It was everything I wasn’t expecting- I got so involved with the characters, and how each one played an important part in this book. Definitely add it to your list.
the woman in the window – A.J. Finn // This was so good. SO GOOD. I couldn’t figure half of it, and more than once said “HOLY SHIT!” under my breath. Definitely a really good twist at the end! Good suspenseful book that I couldn’t put down.
An American Marriage – Tayari Jones // Nadine told me I’d love this book, and she wasn’t wrong. I read this in less than 48 hours. I couldn’t put it down. The characters are so well-written, and you get so involved in the story. I loved the letters between Celestial and Roy – you could just feel everything they were going through. I can’t say enough good things about this one.
Girl, Wash Your Face – Rachel Hollis // I really wanted to see what all the hype was about with this book. I had never heard of Rachel Hollis – never read her blog or her other books, but this book was all over the place. I picked it up at Target to use for my beach read, and one of the other girls on the beach beside me was reading the exact same book. I loved how honest this book was – about her marriage, failures, sex life, religion – all of it. My biggest takeaway was to stop judging people so harshly. Honestly, I’m pretty guilty of it, and this book made me consciously aware of it, and now I make an effort to not do it at all.
Genuine Fraud – E. Lockhart // This was a super short, easy to read book. It took me a minute to figure out what was going on with the main character in the book and how it all played into the situation, as the book mostly works in reverse. I did have to go back and read a few pages a couple times before picking the book back up. It kept my attention, and it was a super interesting premise.
They Both Die at the End – Adam Silvera // Nadine recommended this book on her last SUYB, and it sounded so interesting, I had to pick it up. I love that you know how the book is going to end, but it doesn’t take away from the book at all. It seriously makes you think about what you would do that day if you knew that you were going to die. I loved this so much.
Evidence of the Affair – Taylor Jenkins Reid // TJR can do no wrong. This simple short story comprised of letters between two people having an affair and the two other people being scorned was an un-put-downable look into the repercussions of an affair. It’ll literally take you an hour to read it – and you won’t regret it.
