I read some great books during the month of February thanks to the gross weather. Enjoy!

Alone by Brett Archibald
This memoir is about Brett and how he fell over into the ocean off a ship he was on with his friends.  For 28 hours he was stuck in the middle of the ocean and had no clue where he was.  The book is told hour by hour from his point of view and he floated in the open ocean and dealt with many demons both real and imagined.  It also tells the story of what was going on back on land and in the boat when everyone was scrambling to find him.  It's an AMAZING story of survival!

The Perfect Nanny by Leila Slimani
This is a great thriller about a nanny that seems perfect on the outside but the book follows her as she unravels on the inside.  I love the fast pace and the descriptive text that makes me feel like I'm in the nanny's brain myself.

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
This book reminds me of Gone Girl with the twists and thrilling excitement throughout the book.  An abusive man is the reason an ex is trying to save his new fiancĂ©e from marrying him and being tormented forever. He is trying to stop her from getting in the way. But there's a REALLY big twist.  

Grist Mill Road by Christopher Yates
This book was awesome! It flashes back and forth between 2008 and 1982.  In 1982 three friends were in the woods when a tragic incident occurred. They have moved on but it's coming back to haunt them and as the story unfolds things are not as they seem.  The person you think originally did the worst thing maybe didn't really do it without being provoked. 

The Days When Birds Come Back by Deborah Reed
This was a story about two people with very tragic and haunting pasts that unfold in the storyline throughout the book.  Their paths cross again even though they don't know who the other is at first.  And it leaves the mystery of if their paths will cross a final time... but you have to read to find out. It's a great mix of tragedy, reality, and love.


  1. Wow, what a selection! I think I would like to read Alone. The fact that it's non fictional makes it all the more compelling. Thanks for sharing :)
