Happy Wednesday friends. Hope you're easing into the week nicely - already half way to the next weekend! I mentioned in April that I signed up for Kindle Unlimited and I've been taking advantage of so many of the books! There are a few books below that are part of of a series, which can be a little bit of a turnoff for some that simply want to read a book and be done, but if you get invested in characters like I do, then these may be for you!

Clara Andrews Series || This is an 11 part book series on Amazon and it's perfectly light and airy to read - perfect for spring and summer! They are all free with the Kindle Unlimited option, but only $2.99 otherwise - so not terrible at all! Each book takes Clara into different scenarios from finding a boyfriend to navigating how to meet the parents to planning a wedding in a very short amount of time! It sort of reminds me of the Shopaholic Series with Rebecca Bloomwood - still one of my favorite movies and books! 
The Wife Series || Another series offered, but there are only 4 books in the series - so a lot faster to get through. I read the first book in two days and it definitely kept my interest. Michael and Ellie seemingly have the prefect marriage and relationship, but something happened that has caused them to just "not be the same." I kept trying to figure out what could have happened and you realize that it can really only be one of two things, but you aren't sure which one it is or is it both! Either way it kept my interest and I'm excited to read the rest of the series. 
After You Left || Justin walked out on Alice on their honeymoon and only left behind a cryptic note - a la Burger from Sex & the City when he broke up with Carrie on a post it note! Alice is confused and forced to put her life back together. Evelyn is an older woman who walks into the gallery where Alice works and basically shares her own heartbreaking story that in some ways is eerily similar to Alice's. I thought the author did a nice job of alternating between Evelyn's story from 30 years ago and Alice's current story. I really enjoyed the book! 
That Night || Flipping back and forth between the present and what happened leading up to "that night," Toni & her boyfriend Ryan are sent to prison for murdering her sister. The thing is, they both deny having anything to do with it. Once out on parole, Toni & Ryan are desperate to clear their names. What I really liked about this book, is that even though you sort of know who did it - there's so much more behind the why and how. This was my first thriller in quite some time and it was definitely a page turner for me! 
Slammed || This is part of a three part series from Colleen Hoover. I have the other one on loan from the library right now, but the good news is that the author doesn't leave you hanging in the first book, so you could stop at one if you wanted to, but with Colleen's books, one is never enough. She is such an enthralling author that you find yourself completely engrossed with the characters. Even thought Layken and Will are younger, you can certainly feel the power of their love and frustrations. I may have shed a tear towards the end of the book for what each character has gone through, but we could also blame pregnancy hormones. Definitely worth the read! 


I'm trying to get as much reading in these next few months as possible, so expect at least one or two more "Recently Read" posts! Would love to know what's on your summer reading list! Also, I'm not sure if anyone else's blogger is acting this way, but I am not seeing your comments via email (which is how I respond back to people that comment), so if you know how to fix this - let me know!

  1. These are some of my favorite posts, Biana! My list of books to read keeps growing, but you always have the best recommendations. I will be adding After You Left to my list -- I got distracted while we were on vacation reading several Prince Harry and Meghan Markle books haha so I have to get back on track with my list! Happy Wednesday!

  2. Love these reviews! I cry a lot when I read. I love Colleen Hoover, so going to read that series! Still Blogger issues here too, heard it’s totally site wide as they are fixing cookies from the GDRP thing. Frustrating I know!
