The Soulmate Equation – Christina Lauren // Ahhh, a new Christina Lauren. This one took me a minute to get into, but once I did, I finished it the same day. It had a The One element to it with the science of soulmates, but as always, this one has a bit more romance and fun. I always love their characters, and if you’re a fan of their others, then you’ll love this one too.
Malibu Rising – Taylor Jenkins Reid // TJR can do no wrong. I love loved this book. It follows a family of four children who are the children of a famous dad. Turns out he’s not much of a father, and so their mother is forced to raise them on her own, while the eldest takes more than her fair share of the responsibility. It’s a lovely story about sibling relationships – and I loved every minute of it.
Quiet in Her Bones – Nalini Singh // I was confused for most of this book. There were a lot of characters, and I got them mixed up a lot. Aarav lost his mother when he was young, and doesn’t remember a lot from that night. He lives in a swanky area of New Zealand, called the Cul-de-Sac, and they’re all involved in each other’s lives. Fast forward, they find Aarav’s mom’s Jag with her bones inside. Aarav goes on a mission to discover her murderer. The only reason I kept reading was because I wanted to know who did it, but trying to keep up with everyone was a lot.
The Last Thing He Told Me – Laura Dave // I couldn’t wait to get into this one after seeing all the hype on it, and it certainly lived up to it. Once I started this one, I couldn’t put it down. I loved the relationship between Bailey and her step-mom, and loved watching it develop. Excited to see that this is also becoming a series. Can’t wait to watch it!
The Maidens – Alex Michaelides // OMG – a book that combined mythology and murder, and I don’t know how a book could be more perfect for me. Plus, the twist at the end. I got this one as my BOTM, and I honestly don’t know what book can beat this one. It even had a tiny callback to Silent Patient. Will have a HUGE hangover from this one.
