What Am I Reading?

Happy Monday! Here is a list of what I am planning to read and review over the next week! Are any of these on your TBR list??

Finding You in the Darkness,

by K.B. Andrews

Publication: May 9, 2017

finding youAbout the book: Riley knew where her life was going; she had it all planned out.

Jace was just trying to find the light in his world of darkness.

When Riley walked into Jace’s life, she was so pure, she was blinding. His life was filled with darkness and danger. No matter how hard he tried to fight his way out, he was lost and only her light could bring him back.

Riley knew that she should stay away from Jace, but his charm and good looks couldn’t be fought against. He claimed her from the minute their eyes met.

Jace wasn’t Riley’s prince charming. He was dark, mysterious, and full of secrets. Secrets that were just waiting to be revealed.

He knew that once Riley found out the truth, she would be gone forever, but he didn’t have a choice.

He had to save her.

How far would you go to save the one you loved?

Lucy and Gabe meet as seniors at Columbia University on a day that changes both of their lives forever. Together, they decide they want their lives to mean something, to matter. When they meet again a year later, it seems fated—perhaps they’ll find life’s meaning in each other. But then Gabe becomes a photojournalist assigned to the Middle East and Lucy pursues a career in New York. What follows is a thirteen-year journey of dreams, desires, jealousies, betrayals, and, ultimately, of love. Was it fate that brought them together? Is it choice that has kept them away? Their journey takes Lucy and Gabe continents apart, but never out of each other’s hearts.

Me Before You meets One Day in this devastatingly romantic debut novel about the enduring power of first love, with a shocking, unforgettable ending. A Love Story for a new generation.

I Found You, by Lisa Jewell

Publication: Atria Books; April 25, 2017

I found youAbout the book: A young bride, a lonely single mother, and an amnesiac man of dubious origin lie at the heart of New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jewell’s next suspenseful drama that will appeal to fans of Liane Moriarty and Paula Hawkins.

In a windswept British seaside town, single mom Alice Lake finds a man sitting on the beach outside her house. He has no name, no jacket, and no idea how he got there. Against her better judgment, she invites him inside.

Meanwhile, in a suburb of London, twenty-one-year-old Lily Monrose has only been married for three weeks. When her new husband fails to come home from work one night she is left stranded in a new country where she knows no one. Then the police tell her that her husband never existed.

Twenty-three years earlier, Gray and Kirsty are teenagers on a summer holiday with their parents. Their annual trip to the quaint seaside town is passing by uneventfully, until an enigmatic young man starts paying extra attention to Kirsty. Something about him makes Gray uncomfortable—and it’s not just that he’s playing the role of protective older brother.

Two decades of secrets, a missing husband, and a man with no memory are at the heart of this brilliant new novel, filled with the “beautiful writing, believable characters, pacey narrative, and dark secrets” (London Daily Mail) that make Lisa Jewell so beloved by audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.
