A very clever look into marriage and ambitions, and the toll it takes on a couple. Juicy, riveting, and smart.

Glennon Doyle Melton has written before about her recovery from alcoholism and bulimia. (Check out my review of her earlier book here. I think it was a good book, I just didn't read it at the right time.) Love Warrior adds another chapter in which she finds out about her husband's infidelities.
This is a raw, painful read, but there is redemption. Both Glennon and her husband work hard on themselves and their marriage in order to reconnect. I think that many, many women and men out there dealing with infidelity and sex addiction will find hope and encouragement in reading this book.

This is one spooky and creepy Young Adult novel. Perfect for preparing for Halloween. But not great for reading when you're home alone.

Behold the Dreamers circles around the dilemmas that come with ethics, morals, integrity, immigration, the haves and have-nots, and the secrets that go on in families.
I stayed up late finishing this book. It slowed down in the last third of the book, but the rest went along at a pretty fast clip.

A kinda thriller of a read, but just so-so, in my opinion.

This true story reads like fiction. My only mistake in reading this is that I took it on vacation with me, and please trust me on this, this does not fall under fun vacation reading.

This book is written by Boomer's friend, Adam. Adam and his wife live in Thailand with their ten amazing children. Adam invited us over for dinner twice when we were in Thailand a few years back. It was so fun. They have lovely family dinners together, and a very large rice cooker.
So proud of Adam and looking forward to reading more of his writing!
