Yay! I'm happy you finished BB– I was so surprised as well. I'm in Charlotte and the local news kept breaking in so I was unable to hear the speeches which is what I heard gave Nicole the win. So happy for Victor!!! Also, I have been wanting to comment about Pretty Girls to you and Shay for a few months now but it is soooooo disturbing and graphic!
I watched this is us and loved it…and was completely shocked by the ending but it made me love it even more ! Cannot wait to watch it again this week.
I just finished reading The Rumor and really enjoyed it! I think The Island is my favorite Elin book so far though 🙂 And I've still got to pick up The Good Girl because I LOVED reading Gone Girl and Girl on the Train!

The Rumor has definitely been my favorite Elin Hilderbrand book so far, too! I had a hard time putting it down!
Oh I have heard nice things about This Is Us… will have to check that out. Thanks for the book recommendations. I have to say that Pretty Girls was one of the worst books I have ever read. I found it disturbing and although I am pretty open as far as content, this book was controversial and bordering on inappropriate for me. Way too graphic!
Give me all the Sally Hepworth. She is AMAZING!
Aw. Did you get my new one?
I loved Girl on the Train, Gone Girl etc., but I was disappointed in The Good Girl. I knew from pretty much the beginning what was going on, so I was bummed when the ending came and I felt like "yeah…and?" I'm reading The Oxford Inheritance now because if there's one thing I like better than a suspenseful novel it's a suspenseful novel set in higher education, especially if there's a secret society involved. Needless to say, I love the movie The Skulls. LOL!
Thank you for the shout out Erika! You are too kind xx
Oh I was so surprised that Nicole won but her social game was waaaay better than Paul's so I'm guessing that's what swayed all of the votes? Also, I have the Rumor on my nightstand! I can't wait to read it!! 🙂
So I'm going to have to find THIS IS US and watch it so I can dive in with episode #2!!!! I've heard so many great things about it!
I so have to check out "The Good Girl" and "Rumors." They sound like great books!!!
This is Us. Yes!!!
I've heard great things about Sally Hepworth's books. I need to check them out!
This Is Us…AMAZING!
Yes please! Love this post! I am about to start Pretty Girls😳
This is Us definitely has the Parenthood vibe.. hoping it stays that way!!! I've been wanting to read The Good Girl but was nervous about anything in that genre after Pretty Girls.. Good to know it's not as disturbing.. haha!
You make me want to read every single one of those books. I can't wait to watch This Is US, now I just need to find the time to actually watch it! I usually do that stuff over nap time, but this weekend, an actual nap sounded much better 🙂
Darn! The Things We Keep was on sale for Kindle for $2.99 yesterday. I almost bought it but haven't read anything else of hers so didn't know if I'd like it. I just checked and its back to 12.99. Bummer!!!!!
This Is Us, OH MY WORD. ……The ending totally threw my husband and I for a loop! We loved it! Cant wait to see how they change it up each week now that we know where they were going…….when they panned out in the hospital? WOW!
I loved This is Us but I hate watching shows in real time. I'm more of a binge whenever works for me kind of gal. We will see how this goes!!!
Oh my gosh the last few minutes of This is Us had me blown away..didn't see that ending coming. Can't wait for the next episode!
Always love book recommendations – buying a "dud" is always the worst!
Oh girl, This is Us was so SO great! My jaw literally dropped at the end of the first episode. So freaking good! I can't wait for more! I just hate that it's on at 10! I'm an old lady… that's too late for me.
We have the same taste in books & tv shows! 🙂
I was so surprised too that Nicole won. I am happy she won – I was just surprised!
All in all, not my favorite season but I still enjoyed it. I know what you mean about the end though… 3 episodes a week is a LOT to keep up on – especially with baseball!
This is Us is AMAZING. I am really curious to see how this whole story builds out into a full season. Really cool concept.
Agree with everyone else about This Is Us! Thanks for sharing your book recommendations! I look forward to seeing what you read! I can't believe you get to read so many books!! I am impressed! I fall down the Facebook rabbit hole, I should try reading instead!
So glad you mentioned The Things we Keep. I downloaded it, and will read it next. The secret of Midwives is one of my favorites. im also going to go watch, This Is Us. Love this Monday post filled with great recommendations:)
The Good Girl by Mary Kubica is such a GOOD book! LOVED it. I also watched This is Us and I think it's going to be a good one too.
Seriously….I read Pretty Girls too and it was incredibly disturbing but at the same time I could not stop reading!! The Rumor is my favorite Elin book so far too. And This is Us…Oh my goodness I'm super excited to be watching from the beginning!!
Ok I added The Good Girl to my list. I read the Things We Keep and it was good but not my favorite. I watched This is Us and haven't decided if I will stick with it. But I also watched Designated Survivor and I am hooked!
