You know what time it is, I was going to start this post with I didn’t read much this past month but clearly that is not accurate. You can check the previous book reviews here. I’m joining Steph and Jana to book link-ups. So make sure to check them out to find more book reviews. You can also check out my Amazon shop, when I pick up a new book I always make sure to update the shop. So you can see what I’m currently reading as well.

10 arguments for deleting your social media accounts right now

10 Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts: This book pretty much gave me the push I needed to make some drastic changes with my social media habits. I didn’t delete my accounts because of the blog but I did remove all social media accounts from my phone. So if this book convincing, yes! Yes it is.

Verdict: 5 stars

the elephant in the brain review

The Elephant in the Brain: It took be a while to finish this book but it was so good. It made me question my motives, specially all the excuses I like to make for myself to justify this or that behavior. I loved the part about donations because it resonated with my beliefs. It’s long winded but this book is full of valuable of information and I highly recommend it. It also goes over religion, politics, medicine and more.

Verdict: 5 stars

esther perel where should we begin review

Where Should We Begin: I love Ester Perel and have read all her books. This is the third installment of her couple therapy sessions that you get to listen in on. It is so interesting. This is not a book but it is available on Audible.

Verdict: 4.5 stars.

always and forever lara jean review

Always and Forever Lara Jean: My OCD didn’t allow me to just move on, so of course I had to finish Lara Jean’s story. The first book is still my favorite but I was still happy to read about her story and how her relationship with Peter evolved. It’s a lovely YA book.

Verdict: 4 stars

These last three books are random picks that I got from browsing Amazon and Audible.

prescott lane all my life review

All My Life: This is not your typical love story, he not only didn’t choose her, he even had a baby with another girl. Eventually she did get her happy ending because she loved him all her life. It was a light read and very sweet. Now I don’t know how someone can spend their entire life pining for another person but what do I know.

Verdict: 4 stars

the proposal by jasmine gullory

The Proposal: Now this was a more modern and diverse love story. The heroine got proposed to at a baseball game by the guy she’s being seeing for the past 6 months. Of course she said no and was left humiliated in the stadium. Thankfully, this guy and his sister came to her rescue when she was been hounded by reporters. Eventually she end up with him as her rebound guy, unfortunately their casual affair gets complicated when someone develop real feelings.

Verdict: 4 stars

hate notes vi keeland penelope ward

Hate Notes: This was your typical romance novel BUT the heroine although perfect looking was quirky and funny. She made me chuckle a few times. Another thing I loved about this book is that the guy was of course gorgeous but had some serious health issues that I honestly did not see coming, I don’t want to spoil it for you. The epilogue went 26 years later, although they are still together and in love, they are facing challenges. So this was pretty refreshing compared to other perfect love stories.

Verdict: 4 stars

then she was gone by lisa jewell review

Then She Was Gone: Last Sunday, I asked for a new book recommendation and my friend Gina told me about this one. I could not put it down! The story is about a missing girl, once her mother finally start to move forward with her life and get a new boyfriend, she can’t help but notice the resemblance between her dead daughter and her boyfriend’s youngest child. This story is not like Gone Girl, there’s no major plot twist. You will figure out pretty early on what happened but the character development is amazing. The author also does a great job at not casting some people as villains and others as saints, there’s a grey area. Even the worst characters, you get a view inside their madness. You will bad feel for the mom but like any human she wasn’t a perfect. She wasn’t a great mom to her other children and made some mistakes.GET THIS BOOK AND THANK ME LATER.

Verdict: 5 stars

I had a fabulous reading month and loved all my picks, if you’ve read any of them let me know what you think. I just picked up Intercepted to start, want to read with me? I needed a light hearted book after how heavy Then She Was Gone was.

I created an Amazon shop, where you can find all the books I’ve read and currently reading. Keep in mind I am taking December off this year so My next book review will be on January 8th.

Have you read any good books lately? Please do share 🙂
