I’m already a stay at home mom but was curious to read this and see if I could implement anything new I wasn’t aware of. While I did not learn anything new, it was still a well thought out book chock full of tips and resources. The only issue I have with it is the author makes her living blogging and uses that as one way a stay at home parent can make an income but I don’t find that to be realistic for the majority of parents. It could be possible, but it would be a stretch to have that become the sole source of income in a family.

What I liked most was the fact that even though this is a short book but packed with information, that while I did not find groundbreaking, for someone just starting out deciding to quit their job to stay home it would prove very helpful. The DIY household products and recipe chapters were great! The author approaches each tip in a friendly, caring way and I enjoyed reading it.

Book Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins- 5 Stars

I don’t know why it took me so long to read this but I’m glad I finally did! I was completely shocked at the ending!

Rachel takes the 8:04 train into London every day. It passes by a row of houses, one of which she used to live in, where her now ex husband lives with the woman he left Rachel for. Another house is occupied by whom Rachel refers to as Jason and Jess. She is obsessed with their seemingly happy, head over heels in love life, and has created their perfect life in her head.

Rachel though, isn’t happy. She’s an alcoholic, divorced, and unemployed. She drinks so much she blacks out at times and can’t remember things. I love a good suspense with an unreliable narrator. They keep me guessing and keep the book interesting!

When something happens, Rachel inserts herself directly into a police investigation. But can she be trusted when she can’t even trust her own memories? This was a very fast paced story and I did not want to put it down until I had some answers! If you haven’t read this yet and enjoy psychological suspense, definitely give it a go!

Come and Eat is about Christian hospitality, to invite others to dine at your table literally, coming together over delicious meals, as well enriching and encouraging each other with spiritual food. Inviting others to your table can strengthen your friendships, and your relationship with God.

What I loved most about this was how heartfelt it seemed. It was like the author was speaking to readers as a friend meeting for coffee. I also really enjoyed all the recipes throughout!

Book Review: My Lady’s Choosing: An Interactive Romance Novel by Kitty Curran and Larissa Zageris- 5 Stars

I’m writing this review after doing only one “choosing.” I plan to go back through and select different choices to see the other outcomes!

I loved reading the “Choose Your Own Adventure” books as a kid so I was excited for this adult version! It’s hilarious and saucy. The first adventure I embarked on I chose the rugged Scot, Mac. It’s set in the Regency time period but with a funny, almost satirical twist. The romance at times was steamy but comical and left me crying with laughter! I can’t wait to choose different paths and see where I end up.
