Ugghhh this book made me CRAZY!!! I was hesitant about it at first, since it’s not exactly what I’ve been reading lately. I really wanted to give it a shot, and I did. I’m still unsure if I regret it or not. It’s really hard to say at this point.
Happy Monday everyone! This is a weekly event currently hosted by Book Date and I wanted to participate in my first ever meme! This post will feature what I’ve read this past week, what I’m currently reading, and what I hope to read this week.
This past week was busy for me. I went away for a long weekend from Wednesday to yesterday to Wildwood, NJ, so I didn’t get too much reading done. But I did pick up a nice pile of books to get through!
I think it’s safe to say that Little Women by Louisa May Alcott has a massive following, so the March sisters are literary celebrities in their own right. Everyone has a favorite March sister and that favorite varies from person to person depending on personality and common features. Alcott crafted an incredible story of these four girls who eventually grow into strong, powerful women despite the restrictions on women during and after the Civil War in New England.
The March sisters are similar in some aspects, but they each have their own niches that they find throughout their individual stories. I love the uniqueness of each sister and how they interact with one another as well as their parents. So here I go into detail on my feelings on each March sister and which one I connect with most.
Note: If you haven’t read the book and/or seen the movie, you might not want to continue.

I’ve got 2 books to start this weekend, but which book should I read first???
This past Sunday, I picked up two books I requested from the library. I usually try to minimize my borrowed books to two (I already have one that I’m still working on), but if I didn’t take them out, I would go back on the waiting list for them. And that was NOT happening! So now I have two (and a half?) books to read. I’m currently reading Watch Me Disappear by Janelle Brown. I’m about halfway through the book and I’m LOVING it so far!
I’ve always been a huge fan of Stephen King. The horror genre is my absolute favorite, whether it’s movies, books or TV shows. I’m super excited to go see IT, although I’ll probably have to see it by myself since NONE of my friends are interested… That could make for an interesting movie experience!
So, in honor of the release of IT, here are 7 Stephen King books I have read ranked from least favorite to absolute favorite!
Author: Elin Hilderbrand
Year Published: 2017
Genre: Drama, Contemporary Fiction
Obtained: Public Library Synopsis: Two twin sisters, Harper and Tabitha, split up after their parents’ divorce, one with their mother on Nantucket and the other with their father on Martha’s Vineyard, and the mistakes they make in their lives that affect both themselves, each other, and the people around them as they switch places.
When Elin Hilderbrand’s newest novel, The Identicals, debuted on June 13th, I added it to my list at the library. I was unfortunately put on a waiting list. Two months later, I finally got an email saying I could pick it up! I finally had the hottest beach read all to myself for two weeks! And, trust me, I didn’t need two weeks. It took me three days to read through it.
I finally got my library card this June and this past summer has just been a whirlwind of interesting reads! I know Summer isn’t ‘technically’ over, but September usually ushers in the cooler weather and the changing leaves of Fall. So here is what I’ve read this summer, along with quick reviews!
I don’t know about any of you, but I am desperately IN LOVE with the Fall season! I know what you’re all thinking: it’s not technically Fall yet, but we’re so close that I thought I would share my love with you all!
