Hi guys!!! Y’all have no idea how excited to officially announce this Book Club!! A fun fact about me is that I absolutely LOVE to read. I am always on the hunt for a new book and when I find one I love, I can’t put it down until it’s done! So! For this book club, I will be announcing the Book of the Month within my book reviews that go over the book read the previous month. Basically, at the bottom of this post I will announce May’s book! If you join in and read the book of the month, make sure to shoot me a quick review once you’ve finished it so I can include it in my reviews! 💛

April’s book was The Last Mrs. Parrish and I was so excited that so many of y’all read it with me!!

Here is the gist on it: 

“Amber Patterson is fed up. She’s tired of being a nobody. She deserves more – a life of money and power, like the one blonde-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphine Parrish takes for granted. To everyone is the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphine and her real-estate mogul husband, Jackson, are a couple straight out of a fairy tale. Amber’s envy could eat her alive… if she didn’t have a plan.”  

Here is what a few of you had to say about it: 

@cmst111 – “I absolutely loved the book. The Last Mrs. Parrish is impossible to put down as it keeps you wanting to know what happens next THE WHOLE TIME. I enjoyed every minute of reading it and finished it within 3 days.”

@ellenjablonski – “This book kept me hooked the ENTIRE time. It feels a little like Gone Girl when the narrator switches halfway through. It’s amazing. Also, there were moments during this book that literally made my jaw drop! Can’t say much more without giving away the good stuff… go now and start reading!!” 

@kmichellecathey – “Loved this story! Such a thought provoking fiction book with a surprise plot twist! So fun!” 

I’m sure you can assume, judging by the above reviews of fellow readers, that this book was incredible. It is easily one of my favorite books I have read to date – it’s going to be hard topping it!! It is a psychological thriller, a fast paced read, and just when you think you have the ending figured out, you’re wrong. I don’t want to give too much away but bottom line is if you haven’t read it already, head over to Amazon and order it right away!! 

Now for May’s book! We are going to be reading Behind Closed Doors!

I am so excited about this one, it has such good reviews and is another psychological thriller!! I have a feeling it will be similar to the previous book, which I am totally okay with because I loved the story line of that one so much.

Here’s a quick peek at the story line of Behind Closed Doors: 

“Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. Jack and Grace are inseparable. Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the windows. Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.” 

Ahhh! This one sounds sooo good!! Comment below if you choose to read it and make sure to send me your review once you’re done so I can include it in my book review at the end of May!
