Updated: Dec 3, 2018


Book number 11 took me to the morgue - literally.


Dr. Vincent Di Maio works as a private forensic pathology consultant. He has worked headline-inducing cases like the shooting of Trayvon Martin and less known cases including Jane and John Doe victims.


I liked that the book was honest about life after death and everything that follows.




Book 12 made me feel like I was sitting across from a girlfriend at our favorite bar for a few hours.


Gabrielle is so honest about her experiences and was so real. The book was an easy read - I could barely put it down! I finished the book in less than a full day.


She's inspirational, funny, honest, and relatable.



I've read Lang Leav's poetry through social media and decided to give her novel a try.


I did like her writing style and her voice throughout the book. I wasn't a huge fan of the plot, but would definitely read one of Leav's other books and more of her poetry







Swimming Lessons told the story of a couple through letters left by a wife who drowned years ago.


A husband and daughters are left to figure out the truth of their mother's disappearance, which they find in books that have their mother's special touch left behind.


The book kept me turning the pages.



The Art of Racing in the Rain was recommended to me years ago by my mom and sister.


I waited until this year to read it and regretted not picking it up sooner! The book is narrated by Enzo, a dog.


The pup tells the story of a family from his perspective, through the ups and downs - the dog sees it all.


I love this sweet book and would read it again.
