My Favorite Books Right Now

If there's one thing I'm passionate about besides writing, it's reading. I will read anything. Romance, horror, sci fi, historical, nonfiction, YA, kids. I read it all. There are piles of books in every room of my house so that I can pick one up and start reading where I left off. When I'm in the middle of cooking or eating breakfast or sitting next to my husband while he's watching a people-trying-to-survive-in-the-wild-and-naked show, I read and escape. And because I'm such a huge bookworm, I'm always interested in what others are reading and what they're in love and can't put down. (You know, the book you won't let anyone borrow because they may not return it and that's the only copy there is in the world? Those books.)

So, here are two that I've told anyone and everyone about lately, whether they are readers or not because I love these books so much, I can't keep quiet about them.


First of all, I fell head over heels with Tracey Garvis Graves a few years ago with On the Island so I was beside myself with excitement to learn she had a new book coming out. The Girl He Used To Know is amazing. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. It's a different kind of love story with characters I, personally, have never read about before and I absolutely couldn't get enough of it. In fact, I read it on my Kindle but once I was finished, went right out and bought the paperback. I just had to have it on my shelf. I don't want to give too much away but I highly recommend checking it out.


Ah, The Nightingale. This book still gives me shivers, it was so good. There's so much I could say about the story. It takes place in World War II and focuses on two sisters surviving in different ways when the Nazis take over their town. I felt like I was there, the writing was that amazing. And, ugh, did it tear me apart. I'm not someone who cries when they read a book (I don't think I ever have) but this novel made me sob. I want to read it again and again. Kristin Hannah's other books are great and I highly recommend them but this one is my all time favorite. My fingers are crossed that it will be made into a movie.

Check both books out (link below cover) and I hoped you enjoyed seeing a little of what I'm obsessed with right now!
