Another great month of AMAZING reads. 

Other People's Houses by Abbi Waxman
This was a drama filled book about a group of neighbors and the domestic drama they are all going through.  From a boring marriage to an affair to a lesbian romance.  This was a very realistic book that I felt like I could relate to.   I love stories like this!

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
A great book about a girl that lives in a marsh after abandoned by her family. She becomes the suspect of a murder as the book jumps back in time to show you a glimpse at her love life. 


The Sun Does Shine by Anthony Hamilton
A great book about a man in real life that spent 30 years in death row for a crime he didn’t commit until he finally gets exonerated. I love how it shows the reality behind this type of situation, how common it is, and how even people in the worst of situations can do good for the world. 

The Dinner by Rebecca Serle
This book got a lot of hype and it's for good reason.  A woman is able to have dinner with several people from her past, some of them deceased.  The story bounces back to her past when these people played a significant role and to the present where she dines with Audrey Hepburn and several others. It's kind of sad too but not in a tragic way, just in a "I wish this could really happen" way.

The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins
Mel Robbins writes an inspiring book about how using her 5 Second Rule can change your life in a matter of 5 seconds.  The practice itself forces your body and mind to take action on whatever it is you were wanting to do but lacked motivation.  I am totally using this every day of my life from now on and it's clear from all the testimonials that it works!

The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace by Jeff Hobbs
This is basically an autobiography of Robert Peace's life by his former Yale roommate Jeff.  Robert experienced a broken family and poverty at a young age but he overcame everything and went on to study at Yale University.  Sadly, Robert succumbs to his chosen lifestyle of making money from hustling drugs but everyone still has amazing things to say about him throughout the book.
