Last weekend was a fun weekend with Miss A. Coloring, dressing up, running around- we had a great time!

I’m going to see both the A’s for a bit tomorrow- and hope the weather is nice enough so Big A and I can play a bit outside with her dog. 🙂

Love Her Madly

Summary: If you loved Luckiest Girl Alive and The Girl on the Train, you’ll devour this stunning debut novel about an intense best friendship between two college girls which leads to the abrupt disappearance—and presumed death—of one and the survival of the other, who reveals the twists and turns of their relationship seven years later.

Glo never thought she’d become best friends with a girl like Cyn. Blonde, blue-eyed, and stunningly gorgeous, Cyn is the kind of girl other girls love to hate. Yet Cyn is the only person who embraces Glo when she transfers to their tiny liberal arts college in Florida, looking for a second chance to get things right after falling apart at her first-choice school. With her dark sense of humor and bad-girl ways, Cyn is captivating to a nice girl like Glo, and soon they’re inseparable.

Until they both fall for the same guy.

It’s Cyn who suggests they share Raj. Half the time he’ll be Cyn’s boyfriend, the other half he’ll be Glo’s. And for a while, everything goes smoothly. Until Glo realizes that she doesn’t know Cyn or Raj half as well as she thinks. Until Glo and Cyn’s friendship implodes while they’re studying abroad in Costa Rica. Until Cyn disappears one night, setting off a media firestorm and leaving Glo in the dark for seven long years.

Until Cyn resurfaces. Continue reading

I bet ya’ll thought I just decided to quit Literary Friday postings, right? I’ll be honest, I’ve felt a struggle over the past few weeks as blog life, real life, and all the things I want to do in both lives have been tugging at me. So, Literary Friday has gotten the short end of the stick 😦  SIGH.

 

Meanwhile…. in other news- it’s been a hashtag blessed week as my new niece is now here! She’s got ten yummy fingers and toes that I cannot wait to play “This little piggy” with. Seeing her big sister, Miss A, loving on Little A made my heart SO SO SO SO full this week. Miss A will be spending the weekend with me and we have a big weekend planned- supper at Longhorns (that gal loves her some steak and salad!), Sleeping Beauty and Lilo and Stitch, and plenty of time for arts and crafts as I found a whole tub of foam paper, animals, glitter glue and more to play with.

Still Mine

Summary: A taut psychological thriller in the vein of The Good Girl by Mary Kubica.

Clare is on the run.

From her past, from her husband, and from her own secrets. When she turns up alone in the remote mining town of Blackmore asking about Shayna Fowles, the local girl who disappeared, everyone wants to know who Clare really is and what she’s hiding. As it turns out, she’s hiding a lot, including what ties her to Shayna in the first place. But everyone in this place is hiding something—from Jared, Shayna’s secretive ex-husband, to Charlie, the charming small-town drug pusher, to Derek, Shayna’s overly involved family doctor, to Louise and Wilfred, her distraught parents.

Did Shayna flee? Was she killed? Is it possible she’s still alive?

As Clare uncovers the mysteries around Shayna’s disappearance, she must confront her own demons, moving us deeper and deeper into the labyrinth of lies and making us question what it is she’s really running from. Twisting and electrifying, this is a get-under-your-skin thriller that will make you question what it means to lose yourself and find yourself in the most unlikely places. Continue reading
