Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

―In Touch Weekly
When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife.
You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love.
You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle.
Assume nothing.
Twisted and deliciously chilling, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen's The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

Read between the lies.

"The best domestic suspense novel since Gone Girl." 

First off, when I see this comparison, it's usually the kiss of death to a book for me. But, "they" got it right this time. This was an absolutely mind blowing tale. I can't say enough how much I thoroughly enjoyed it. 
And I must say, all the assumptions I made (even after reading the blurb) wrong oh so wrong! This twisty tale will knock you on your butt so many times. Just as soon as you think you have something figured out-nope! you will be wrong. 
I actually listened to this as an audio book. I only listen for about three hours a week while driving to visit the grand babies and have found that only suspense thrillers are acceptable (for me) when driving. This book kept me sitting in the car long after I had arrived and once home had to finish it before going to bed. Not only will I be one of the first in line to buy tickets when this is released as a movie but I intend to "reread" it in print and see if I pick up on any of the twists before the reveal. A very satisfying read!

I really enjoyed this one on audio as well, and I no I didn’t see the big twist coming. It was well done. I can’t wait for the movie.
