Did a book’s ending ever make it hard to fairly rate the book? I am not saying that the ending was terrible, its just that…well, I just didn’t like it. Which stinks because up until the 95% mark of this book I thought it was rather fun. I was whipping through the ending because I wanted to finish and then BAM, that “twist.”
It was a fun story; classic chick-lit, light read that is easy to whip through. I liked some characters, I hated some characters (which you were supposed to). But obviously meh about the ending.

I love music just as much as I love books and every Saturday share my Top 5 Saturday Nite Jams in my Instagram stories. This week’s post I thought I would review my latest book club read: Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson and dedicate my weekly jam list to the book. After my review you can check out which 5 songs I would pick to describe this book.Enjoy!
This darling of a book was exactly what I needed to round out the majority of heavy reads I completed this month. It was simply delightful: filled with a humor and that butterflies in your stomach feeling. If this book was a living thing I would want to hug it(and if you know me, I hate hugs).Read More »
I love music just as much as I love reading (maybe even more 😬) and for me the two often go hand in hand. I often will be reading a storyline and think of a corresponding song. So I thought it would be fun to play out a musical scenario and ask you which books the “conversation” reminds you of. Hence, finding me my next TBR additions!
You also get to pick the ending! Fun, right?!
Here’s how the story goes (as sung by the likes of Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande and TSwift):Read More »

I absolutely loved this audiobook.Narrator Katie Schorr was perfection. I couldn’t wait for my drive to and from the Path train in order to be able to continue listening to the back-and-forth banter between Lucy and Josh. It made folding laundry enjoyable too: and if you don’t know, I detest folding and putting away laundry. Just thinking about it makes my skin crawl, but here I was doing multiple loads because I needed to keep the story going.Read More »

Twenty-five year old Allie Simon has a good head on her shoulders, a good job, good friends and supportive family. She becomes consumed by a charming, bad boy celeb chef named Benji Zane and her simple life as she knows it, well isn’t very simple anymore.
Benji is a recovering addict who – only 3 months sober – asks Allie to invest her entire life savings in “their” future (to partner in opening a restaurant with Benji at the helm, sold alongside the future image of them married with kids in a brownstone yada yada yada).
Guess what? You probably guessed right: only a month before opening, Benji relapses and goes off the grid leaving Allie to unwillingly step into his place; in order to not lose her investment. The rest of the story is Allie maneuvering the foodie scene in a high-end area of Chicago: friends, critics and social media not always on her side and often waiting to see her fail. It’s a cute story and I enjoyed watching Allie come into her own.Read More »
