Happy May! The start of a new month, you know what that means. Time to talk about what we read last month! (And also, what I read in March too cause I only got through one book so I didn’t post about it). If you missed my previous reading lists, you can find them here!
Let’s start off with March’s read:
Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella
This is a quick and light hearted read. The story line isn’t super compelling but I do enjoy Sophie Kinsella and this book had me smiling and laughing the whole way through. It’s great if you’re looking for a little pick me up and light read.
To sum it up: Emma Corrigan gets really nervous during bad turbulence on a plane ride and due to nerves she spills every little secret to the stranger sitting next to her (like her boyfriend thinks she’s 10lbs lighter than she really is, where she lost her virginity, she isn’t really sure she even loves her boyfriend etc.). A few days later she finds out that stranger is the founder of the big company she works for, whoops. She tries to avoid him but he seems to track her down everywhere she goes. Soon Emma realizes he isn’t going to share her secrets with anyone but now that he knows her so well he wants to help make a few things right in her life.
The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
Although a little bit slow to start off, this book got REALLY good. I couldn’t put it down toward the end! This was my neighborhood book club’s selection for April and I’m so glad we decided to read it. Highly recommend!
After a very traumatic experience Anna Fox now has a fear or being outside. So she stays in her brownstone in New York City watching movies, drinking wine and spying on the neighbors.
A new family moves in across the street and one night she sees something very disturbing happen in their home. She is determined to get to the bottom of it but doesn’t know who to turn to. And those she thought she could trust tell her she is imagining things. Needing to know what happened and to prove that she isn’t crazy she begins to piece everything together, and it ends up no one is as they seem.
The Break Down by B.A. Paris
I really loved B.A. Paris’s first novel, Behind Closed Doors. It’s one of my all time favorites, I couldn’t put it down and finished it in 2 days. So when I saw she had another book out I was so excited to read it. I like this one a lot too, it kept me interested the whole time and I was very intrigued to get to the ending!
Cass was driving home one night during a storm and saw a woman parked on the side of the road. She thought about stopping to see if she needed help but the storm was so bad and she was nervous to get out of her car so she drove off. She then finds out the woman was murdered later that night, and Cass happened to know who she was.
That road is dangerous especially during a storm, her husband would be furious if he knew she went home that way so she’s afraid to tell him what she saw. But since that night she’s been forgetting every single thing. How to use the coffee machine, plans with friends, how to work the washer, where she left her car in the parking garage. The only thing she can think about is the woman she saw that night and how she could have helped her, but didn’t. She also can’t forget about the weird calls she receives every day with someone whose silent on the other end, and she feels like she’s constantly being watched.
Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
I wrote about this book in February’s reading list but now I’ve actually finished it and feel it’s worth discussing again because every single person can benefit greatly from it!
We all have a financial blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds and it is this blueprint that will determine our financial lives. If your blueprint isn’t set for financial success, you won’t make a lot of money. Or if you do you’ll somehow lose it. Part 1 explains how your money blueprint works and Part 2 is 17 “Wealth Files” that describe how wealthy people think and act vs. middle-class and poor people. I highly, highly recommend this one, it’s so interesting and informative!
What I want to read next:
Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman: This is May’s selection for my neighborhood book club and I’m so glad because I’ve been wanting to read it for a while! I have it on audio and started today. Pretty sure it’s gonna be a good one!
The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware: This has been recommended by a few of you guys and is on my wish list.
A Tribe Called Bliss by Lori Harder: Lori is one of my mentors and I’m so excited to get my hands on this book!
