21, az, I love fall🍂 & christmas & space🪐 & taylor swift & maisie peters & elephants & thrillers & mysteries!
I LOVE this book! The author really captures the essence of loneliness and how intense isolation can push people to willingly betray their good judgement and instincts. While that may sound like a cautionary tale, loneliness can also dig up a powerful strength buried deep inside ourselves, and it can teach us how to stand taller, be resilient, and understand fully the fabric of our being.

I don’t usually read comedy books & for that reason it took me a while to get through, but most people could probably breeze through this quickly. It was a nice, light read with really deep and meaningful moments weaved throughout. It touches on important topics in a light hearted & humorous way; topics like suicide and the hardships of being an adult; with an overall theme of “We’re all human & just trying our best, so let’s help each other.” Lots of fun twists/ surprise connections as well!

Such a suspenseful read; it captured and held my attention from the first page. Fastest I’ve ever read a book! There was always something brewing & the author did a great job keeping the “bad guy” a mystery, while planting seeds of suspicion in every passenger, so you’re constantly debating “whodunnit” until the end!
Five Total Strangers
Books | Natalie D. Richards
This was such a surprise! It leads you to believe it’s a romance/lovetriangle & then it’s not at all—it reveals the intense, passionate, and powerful platonic love of best friends. It had me teary eyed & touched. I love the encouragement of spontaneity in life & living for the moment & the emphasis on the importance of our chosen family. I was not expecting it to be so meaningful or end in that manner. It was a lonely but hopeful conclusion that forces you to consider life & time.#grief#change#friendship
In Five Years
Books | Rebecca Serle
I loved mystery and thriller books when I was younger & I watch a lot of that genre in movies/tv shows. It has been a while since I’d read a thriller/mystery novel, so I really enjoyed getting back into it with this book. I love Ruth Wares writing style so much & she truly had me on the edge of my seat. The beginning progresses a bit slow, but I enjoyed having that time to build the setting & establish the characters in my mind. The ending blew my mind & I had such a book hangover afterwards lol

Read this for my Positive Psychology class this past semester! I learned a lot & love how applicable it is to how we live our lives. Meditation, mindfulness, gratitude, positivity, etc. have been total game changers in my everyday life and overall well-being.

I devoured these books in elementary school & I’d love to read them again, along with the new book Suzanne Collins released about pres. snow. I still think about these books often & I always watch the movies when they come on tv!

This series stole my junior high heart! I remember reading the first book for a book report in 7th grade. I flew through it & then NEEDED the second book, but it hadn’t come out yet. I would read every single released snipped online that I could, until I finally got my hands on the released physical copy. Great series! I’ve been thinking about rereading this as well. (Side note: obsessed with the dresses—the blue dress is a DREAM).
