Friday Favourites- All the books

Happy Friday, loves! 

Summer's here (once June is here, I call it summer, something my five y.o. taught me!) and the reading has begin. Here are a few of the books I've been reading recently and some that are on my list.

After I Do- Taylor Jenkins Reid

After I Do: A Novel by [Reid, Taylor Jenkins] 

A book about a couple and how they seemingly fall 'out of love' and how they navigate a year apart, this one was an interesting read. Though I can't 100% identify with everything in the book, I loved the truth about having to work on a marriage and the protagonist was very relatable.  The ending was very sweet though I don't know in real life if it would pan out the same way!

After You: A Novel by [Moyes, Jojo]

After I read Me before You (loved the love story but didn't enjoy how it all panned out since I don't believe in euthanasia), I was curious to see Louisa and her life and journey. I enjoyed reading Louisa and how she dealt with her grief and eventually moves on with so many possibilities in her future! 

The Things We Keep: A Novel by [Hepworth, Sally]

Oh... this was a riveting and poignant read about early onset dimentia in the two protagonists in their late thirties brought together in a group home. I found myself deeply moved and very touched by their story and the challenges they face. Not an easy read, but a wonderful one, nonetheless that made me very grateful for my strong, alert mind.

The Survivor's Guide to Family Happiness by [Dawson, Maddie]

Nina Popkin is looking for her birth mother, newly orphaned and divorced but semi adrift, we go through an unlikely situation with her as she discovers her mom, a sister, a potential new family and subsequently herself.

And here are a few I plan to read in the upcoming summer.

You know I'm getting the new Elin Hilderbrand book- The Perfect Couple... next week!!

The Perfect Couple by [Hilderbrand, Elin]

Emily Giffin comes out with a new book every other year- All We Ever Wanted is going to be out just in time for my summer travels!

All We Ever Wanted: A Novel by [Giffin, Emily]

Another one of my faves is Lauren Weisburger and When Life Gives You Lululemons is in my kindle right now waiting to be downloaded. 

When Life Gives You Lululemons by [Weisberger, Lauren]

From my library, I just got Class Moms by Laurie Gelman- I loved her on The Mom Show in Canada- a now defunct show that came out just around that time that I had my firstborn. I think it will be a fun read!

Class Mom: A Novel by [Gelman, Laurie]
