books to read

books to read book recommendations what I'm reading

I've mentioned it before, but my reading habit fell to the wayside in 2016. I tried really hard to get back into it last fall, something that didn't really happen until my vacation at the end of the year. I read 6 books in seven days! And that just put me on a roll. 

One of my goals for the year is to keep this going and read more. I'm pushing for 25 books this year, which I really hope I exceed. I have quite a long list of titles that I'd like to get through {I'll be sharing next week}, and that gave me the idea to share some of the ones that I've loved recently!

All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda // This book was a standout for me on vacation. Nicolette Farrell returns home to North Carolina, a place she hasn't been since her best friend Corinne disappeared a decade ago, to take care of her father's personal business. While she's home, she runs into all of her old friends and ex-boyfriend, all of whom were suspects then, including Nicolette herself. And now they're in the center of a new investigation when another girl goes missing - a girl who not only has ties to this whole group but Corinne, too. It's told backwards, so you'll start two weeks after the second disappearance and end on the first day.

The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena // Ann and Marco Conti return home from a dinner party next door to discover that their baby is missing. The supposed "perfect couple" now find themselves rushing to find their baby girl while desperately trying to keep secrets under wraps - secrets that could destroy their reputation, secrets they were keeping from everyone, including each other. There was a twist towards the end that I wasn't expecting and completely through me for a loop!

The Twilight Wife by A.J. Banner // This book was a page-turner and one that I couldn't put down. I stayed up so late reading this that getting up for work the next day was rough. Since her diving accident, Kyra Winthrop can only remember the tiniest bits and pieces of the last few years of her life. She and her husband, Jacob, live on an island where everyone seems to know their life, but she can't recall anything about them. Then, she starts having visions of a marriage that is less than ideal and another man who seems very familiar and needs to piece everything together before these memories are taken from her again.

Dreamology by Lucy Keating // The best way to describe this book is sweet. So sweet and so cute! It's lighthearted and easy, something I desperately needed after all the mysteries and thrillers I've read. Alice has been dreaming of Max for as long as she can remember. That's all he is, the guy of her dreams because Max doesn't actually exist. But then Alice and her dad move to Boston and she learns that Max is real. He's real and sitting in her class and nothing like the guy she's dreamed of. When the line between dreams and reality starts to blur, Max and Alice have to figure out whether or not dreaming of one another is worth it.

I've got my next book lined up, but I would really love to know what you're reading. Have you read any books lately that you would recommend?
