Book Review

Happy Monday! I hope you are doing well and had a fantastic weekend. Ours was quiet and filled with lots of rest which is always so nice. My heart needed that!

Today, I am sharing the three books that are on my nightstand at the moment. I am doing a lot of reading these days, so I am excited to share what I have been reading with you! 🙂

People we meet on Vacation

This book is about best friends who navigate that sometimes confusing line between friendship and “something more”. It is very character driven which can slow me down sometimes, but once I was hooked, I really grew to love the characters and their relationship. I was rooting for them in the end!

Even though the cover feels super summery, the book is not really about summer or themed around the beach at all. SO, I think this would be a great read for you this Fall, if you are needing a sweet romance that really digs in and explores the two characters and their relationship!

The Night She Disappeared

I needed a good plot driven book next, so I knew a good thriller would be right up my alley. This book delivered. I am going to be honest though–mid-way through was a touch slow, but once you got over the hump it was a great little book. It was set in English countryside, and I really was thrown for a loop on a few of the twists. I wanted a little more at the end, but I am really wondering if there will be a follow-up book on these characters. 🙂

Feeding the Soul

Oh my goodness…this book has to be one of my favorites in quite some time. Maybe you have seen Tabitha on social media and are familiar with her? When I saw that she had a book coming out, I knew that I wanted to read it. There is just something that is so precious and comforting about her nature, and well…I was drawn to her!

I haven’t finished this one quite yet, but I knew somewhere within the first few chapters that I was going to love this book. So, I made sure to include it in this review today. It was so interesting to hear her perspective on life–her understanding is quite rich and deep. She filters her wisdom through compassion while still being very direct, and I just found myself REALLY stopping and processing several of the things she talked about. (There were parts of the book that were like honey on my soul.) I really do recommend this one for an encouraging read. I bet you will love it too.

What are you reading right now? Would love to get some recommendations from you! I have Liane Moriarity’s new book next in my queue. See you back here on Wednesday! XOXO Narci

  1. I just finished Apples Never Fall a week or so ago and thought it was pretty good. I’m currently reading a middle grade fiction about 9/11 called ground zero and a cute little murder mystery called Dying for Devil’s Food.

  3. Some of my favorites lately have been Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley – great on audio! It’s a slow burn suspense (?maybe? – I never know the line between mystery/suspense/etc) and gave a beautiful look into the Native culture of many of the main characters. The Guncle by Steven Rowley was heartwarming and would make a great movie. How the Word is Passed by Clint Smith was an amazing narrative non-fiction–the writing is absolutely gorgeous and it spoke to my soul.

    • I just finished and enjoyed The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang (warning:there is steam). I just started The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling.

      I would definitely recommend One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Simi Liu is going to be a lead on the upcoming movie adaptation.

  4. Hmmmm…I read the other Lisa Jewell book, Then She Was Gone, and it kinda broke my heart- maybe I’ll try this one! I’m reading Falling by T.J.Newman and I’m flying tomorrow, so that’s probably not very good timing…it’s an easy read so far, but a little implausible. And I started The Sanitorium which isn’t quite grabbing me. I also just started Maid after starting to watch the show – liking it pretty much, this is my second try. Jeepers, I seem to have some book ADD, or finishing issues, lol. And I just wrote you a novel!
