It took me a little longer to get into this one, but once I did the pages wouldn’t stop turning. I also really enjoyed the way each chapter started out as a flashback to her childhood and faded into the now where other books have whole chapters dedicated to flashbacks and they alternate with the now chapters.
The Opposite of Everyone
Books | Joshilyn Jackson
Whether you are, or are not. Whether you do, or don’t believe in humans…. You should read this book. Matt Haig is brilliant.

I generally have a hard reading books that are set any earlier than the 20th century but this book, this one made me a believer. Not only is the story line genuinely interesting but the characters are so lively that it makes me want to travel back in time to know them personally and be a part of their adventure.
Things in Jars
Books | Jess Kidd
Having worked in an ER and growing up witnessing a lot of daily domestic violence, this book really hit close to home for me. You don’t realize how many things you are holding on to, unable to move past because you don’t quite understand forgiveness and the fact that it’s more for you than it ever could be the person who is the object of that forgiveness. Read this book. Learn to meditate. Learn to love and forgive and move on.
The Beauty in Breaking
Books | Michele Harper
Not at all the type of book I would usually pick up, but I am so glad I did. This book really puts in to perspective the one thing all humans seem to crave- immortality. Is living 500 years worth it if it means leaving behind everyone and everything you’ve ever loved?
How to Stop Time
Books | Matt Haig
I believe if you are really paying attention there are many lessons to take away from each book you read. This one taught lessons of love, family that is not blood, and finally evil. How it’s not a person, place or thing but lives in all of us. How it’s born and bred right at our core and when not carefully managed bubbles over and runs rampant. I picked this book at random off a library shelf and it turned out to be one of the best books I’ve ever read. 10/10 recommend.
What Comes After
Books | JoAnne Tompkins
Everyone needs an Alex or a Poppy, plain and simple. While usually not a fan of the romance books I really enjoyed this one. It’s fun and sarcastic, actually making me laugh out loud on several different occasions, while also teaching many valuable lessons about friendship, love, and how to have both. In the words of Emily Henry- “Maybe things can always get better between people who want to do a good job loving each other. Maybe that’s all it takes.”
People We Meet on Vacation
Books | Emily Henry
One thing is certain, French knows how to write a mystery that will keep you on your toes and this was no exception. But also beyond that, by the end of chapter 13 you realize this was in fact an exceptional tale of luck, both good and bad.
The Witch Elm
Books | Tana French
Tiffany Haddish keeps it real and will have you literally laughing out loud while reading her book! While having been through her fair share of pure sh*t she came out swinging on the other side and built a life to be proud of. An absolute must read!!
