Book Recommendations & Currently Reading

Pretty Little Wife is a Book of the Month selection for me. I started last night and so far, four chapters in, I’m loving it!

Based on the blurb and from what I’ve read, I think Lila will be an unreliable narrator. I admit, I’ve grown a little tired of this type of narration, but the set up of this has me pretty intrigued, so I’m in it for the duration.




So far, I highly recommend! Check it out here.

Lila Ridgefield lives in an idyllic college town, but not everything is what it seems. Lila isn’t what she seems.

A student vanished months ago. NowLila’s husband, Aaron, is also missing. At first these cases are treated as horrible coincidences until it’s discovered the student is really the third of three unexplained disappearances over the last few years. The police are desperate to find the connection, if there even is one. Little do they know they might be stumbling over only part of the truth….


With the small town in an uproar, everyone is worried about the whereabouts of their beloved high school teacher. Everyone except Lilahis wife. She’s definitely confused about her missing husband but only because she was the last person to see his body, and now it’s gone.

The Housekeeper, by Natalie Barelli⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love a book that keeps me up way too late. This one did. I paid for it the next morning, but it was totally worth it. I feared, at first, that Claire was an unreliable narrator, something I’m personally tired of. She wasn’t. The story was entertaining, twisty, and made me stay up half the night to finish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just one more chapter…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What’s the last book you stayed up way to late to finish?

Finding a new “auto-buy” author for me is exciting. I get all tingly with anticipation for the next book I get to read by him or her. I read The Silent Wife, by Kerry Fisher. Then I thought I’d try The Woman I Was Before. I stayed up way too late last night reading, and just finished it today. I loved every bit of it.


The book weaves together the stories of three women living on the same street. Each story is interesting. Each woman is complex. The fake reality of the “perfect” lives we share on social media compared to the actual messy lives we lead is a key element. Each woman goes through a reckoning, of sorts, when the lives they share collide with the reality.

I loved it, and Kerry Fisher is becoming an auto-buy author for me. Have you read any of her books? Do you have a favorite?
