Four Books to Read Now

With my last book post back in April, I was off my reading game this summer, starting books and not really liking them, so I paused and decided to binge on some Netflix! Now that I've had that fix, I have returned to finding books that I really like and bring you four that you should absolutely add to your "to be read" list! 

The Way I've Heard It Should Be (Kindle Unlimited) || This book follows four women in a very wealthy suburb of Manhattan and the intricacies of their lives - not quite as perfect as it may seem from the outside. I think everyone can relate to a character in this book in some way which makes it such a great read. Danielle, the outsider that married the older divorced man with kids. Laura, the picture perfect mom that has enough help to make her life easier, but it doesn't really. Olivia with two great girls and an adoring husband that misses her old life back in the city and working. Gretchen, the oldest one in the group that is dealing with a husband that's unhappy and a teenage daughter in dangerous territory. I read the follow up to the book Second Chances not even realizing there was a first book. You could read both or just read one. 
A Life Worth Living (Kindle Unlimited) || I randomly cried reading this book, which was unexpected since I thought the twists the author wrote in would be enough to leave the tears at bay. Leah & Eve are twin sisters and that's about as far as their similarities go. Eve is self involved, loves to put on a show for her "Friends", doesn't really have the motherhood gene in her and rarely pays attention to her husband or twin daughters. Leah on the other hand is caring to a fault, wants to have a family more than anything and will do anything for her sister. An accident changes everything for these women and you wonder which will take the life worth living. I found myself eagerly awaiting how the author would finish the book - twists were good and unexpected! 
Love and Other Words || It's been a while since I've really been into a book and felt captivated by the writing. I finished this in a day - not sure how, but it happened! Macy and Elliot were friends growing up since Macy & her dad had a vacation house where Elliott lived. They grew up together and with that their relationship evolved from friends to more than friends, until one day Macy abruptly ended it all. Eleven years later Macy & Elliot run into each other and it makes Macy question her seemingly great life of just "okay-ness" It's told in alternating chapters between then and now and when you finally get to find out why Macy is the way she is, everything falls into place. I loved it and I even shed a few tears! Really great read! 
Maybe Later (Kindle Unlimited) || This was such an unexpected and fun read. Alternating between email, chat and some in person conversations, I found myself flying through this book to see what Jackson and Amy, his virtual assistant would talk about. There was definitely a rated R element to the book, but it was tastefully done and not thrown all over the place so you could actually get into the characters stories. Jackson is a tough and grumpy CEO who hired a virtual assistant that pushes him to open up and in turn Amy gets more than she bargained for with Jackson. It's a bit like You've Got Mail with a little Sleepless in Seattle thrown in, so fans of Nora Ephron will love this!
