Let’s Look at…My Favorite Reads!


Shay and I are all ready for Let’s Look!  It’s our monthly link-up where we take a peek at the little things in your life.  Today, we’re taking a peek at our favorite reads.

I must tell you I’ve been taking a major reading break this winter.  My Winter Reads 2019 is gonna be crazy short.  ALL GOOD, but crazy short.  Hope you’re ready for it!

If you haven’t read this book, you should stop what you’re doing now…let the kids skip school, call in sick to work, tell the hubby you’re taking a mental health day and read this book!  Immediately!  I was reading this on my kindle and kept thinking…it’s gotta be almost over, THEN something BIG would happen and there’d be another two hundred pages.  That happened approximately three times.  It’s so good, leaves you guessing, and really could be like three great books in one.


The Dinner List is all about a woman’s list of who are the five people she’d like to have dinner with-dead or alive…well her fictitious list REALLY comes true.  She finds herself sitting around a dinner table WITH THOSE FIVE PEOPLE.  It was so interesting to see how her five people interacted with each other-let alone her!  I really enjoyed this one too!

Okay, after you finish The Great Alone-take ANOTHER day off work and get to reading this one.  Swear on This Life was such a good read and had me sucked in from the first few pages.  Imagine hearing about a new author hitting the scene only to being reading and hearing YOUR EXACT LIFE STORY!  I don’t want to give too much away.  This one is rated R so readers beware but if that doesn’t bother you, I highly recommend it.

Reese’s Book Club books rarely steer me wrong and this one was no different.  One day in December {hence the title} a girl spots a guy through a bus window and falls truly, madly, and deeply in love with him.  She feels a spark through just that one look and actually spends years looking for him.  She doesn’t see him again UNTIL…her roommate introduces her new boyfriend DUH, DUH, DUH.  The book spans a decade or so as we follow along with what transpires after that one day in December.  A cute read that you could read any day of the year.

In case you’re missed other recent book posts…

If I had to choose one book as my favorite, I’d choose this…

There you have it…those are some of my CURRENT FAVORITE READS.

Hope you enjoyed taking a peek at those.  🙂

Blogger friends, be sure to join us next month.  NEXT MONTH WE’RE BLOGGING OUR LET’S LOOK POSTS A WEEK EARLY.  The FIRST Wednesday of the month will be our link-up to accommodate for Spring Break schedules.

Have a GREAT day!

    I have almost all of these on my "To Read" list for the year and can not wait to dive into them all! My only problem is deciding which one to read first! I'm thinking about going with "The Great Alone" Thanks for the recommendations! 🙂

    Left to Tell: by Ilibagiza-Immaculee. This book and the message of hope and forgiveness is outstanding. It has left a lasting impact on my life.

    If you liked The Great Alone (I loved it–it sat with me for days), you can binge Alaska, the Last Frontier on the Discovery channel. I actually stumbled across it shortly after I read the book–these are people who live like the families in The Great Alone and in the exact same setting in the book–but in 2019. It is a little PG-13 at times (language and they are big hunters)–but I'm finding it fascinating! There are 8 or 9 seasons I believe. It is a reality show, so you know…but their life style is so different! Other books I love…The Help and For the Love by Jen Hatmaker.

    I started strong in January but haven’t picked up much steam so far this month! I think I need to make Swear On This Life my next read.
