I read Tell Me Lies by Carola Lovering in June and its the perfect book to pair with a Saturday Nite Jams playlist. Check out my 4 disco ball review here!
Broke up with your own Stephen DeMarco? Or worse, dating a Stephen DeMarco?! (Asking yourself who Stephen DeMarco is? Go read my quick, spoiler free review.) My advice: can him and sing these songs on the top of your lungs and all will be right in the world.Read More »

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 »

This book brought out many feels in me: nostalgia, regret, anger, but also strength and peace. Each chapter was more addicting than the one before and I could not wait to finish. I felt anxious all the way up until the end.
Before I get to it, I just have a message for Stephen DeMarco and all the other “Stephen DeMarco’s” out there:

You know the saying about potato chips “bet you can’t eat just one!”? Well, don’t eat potato chips while reading this book. For starters potato chip grease gets on the pages, which is a pet peeve of mine. But, more importantly you will not be able to stop reading chapter after chapter and your stomach can’t handle all those chips. This can definitely be a one sitting book read.If you are looking for a book to start your summer off right: this here is your jam!

This book is a beast, in that the hardcover is 454 pages. I started this book on a Sunday in the hopes of finishing by Wednesday, May 2nd to make the Barnes & Noble Inaugural Book Club Night (on said book). I did it but it was no small feat! Lots of late night reading and carrying the book with me everywhere and reading while waiting on line, or while walking to the subway, or whenever I had a free moment. But, you don’t care about that. You want to know if you should read it or not…well you can only decide that. I just hope you enjoy my comments.Read More »
