just finished: Lies You Never Told Me, a YA blow burn thriller told by two different characters. Gabe is a skateboarded in a bad relationship and Elyse is a hard working teen with an opiod-addicted mother and a chance to be the lead in the school play. As their stories unfold, the twists and turns, the lies and secrets come to the surface. I honestly didn't know much about this one going in, so the twists really turned me around. Very interesting read!
currently reading: I've been reading Allison Pearson's I Don't Know How She Does It, about a working mother names Kate Reddy. Kate is smart and funny, and she is such a hot mess! The novel is so much fun to read, and I can't wait to see what happens with her two kids, her architect husband, her mostly renovated London home, her sexist financial services company, her flirty New York client, and the other mothers who were all competing for birthday parties, Christmas presents, and of course preschools. The next Kate Reddy book comes out Tuesday, How Hard Can it Be? and it's going to be one of the best books of summer. I've also been listening to Ritz and Escoffier, the story of one of the finest hotels ever created. It's meticulously researched and so incredibly fascinating!
up next: There are a couple of really good thrillers coming out Tuesday, Social Creature and Something in the Water are both going to be bestsellers of the summer, and they should both be really lots of twisty fun. Something in the Water, Reese Witherspoon's pick for her book this month, about newlyweds who stumble on a big secret in the water. Will their marriage survive? And Social Creature is a described as a new Talented Mr. Ripley about a relationship between a a wannabe and an already has. They both sound amazing and twisty, and I can't wait to chase these thrillers to find out just how far they'll go!
