Book reviews

The Guest List by Lucy Foley

This was a great way to jump into my fall reading. I prefer to read these type of books more in the fall/winter. It took me a little while to get into, as there are many character POVs, plus time jumping. There are some characters that aren’t very likeable, as is expected with this type of book. I will say, there were several things that I didn’t see coming! I even gasped in a few spots. I loved the creepy feeling you get on the island and the slow burn as it all played out. Definitely recommend.

Bottom Line: Read it!

Mr Big Shot by RS Grey

I devoured this book, as I always do when it comes to R.S. Grey! So many tropes! You have hot boss, forced proximity, fake dating, off limits, age gap. Goodness. And they all somehow worked perfectly in a way only R.S. Grey can pull off!!! I enjoyed this one immensely. The whit and banter are on point and had me smiling the whole way through. Fantastic cast of characters and storyline. Loved the dual point of view. I cannot wait to get my hands on her next one!

Bottom Line: Read it!!

Unfortunately Yours by Tessa Bailer

Book Cover

Now, usually I love Tessa Bailey for her characters and her spicy scenes. And while I did like both Natalie and August, they were both a bit immature for me. August is an Ex Navy Seal, and I loved his strong, alpha man personality…but I felt like we could have gone a lot deeper with his PTSD to make the book more interesting. It was fun getting to revisit the Voss family and the cute little town. I just wanted more from the book. And maybe a little less of the cringy dirty talk. The relationship was missing that depth I love in a romcom.

Bottom Line: Read it if you enjoyed the first and Tessa Bailey is your jam.

Love Interest by Clare Gilmore

**This one releases on October 10, 2023**

This was an office romance/hate to love trope that had me swooning! We meet Casey, a super smart, finance girl who just had her promotion snubbed from her by Alex, the bosses son. He knows there is some tension between them, but doesn’t know the reason why. Watching these two go from hate to love was such a fun ride! We watch Casey grow and figure out who she is, there is a lot of personal growth for both characters. This one will pull at your heartstrings and make you feel all warm and fuzzy. I definitely look forward to reading more from Clare Gilmore!

Bottom Line: Read it

The Glucose Revolution by Jessie Inchauspe

This book was recommended to me by both my doctor and my RD. This book is packed full with valuable information that will benefit everyone. While I do not have numbers that show insulin resistance or diabetes in bloodwork, I do feel highs and crashes all day long and now I know why! Just doing a few of the hacks in this book has me feeling so much better and I cant wait to incorporate even more, I am all about taking steps and not a total overhaul overnight. I highly suggest this book, or at least following her on Instagram!

Bottom Line: read it!

The Glucose Goddess Method by Jessie Inchauspe

Reading this book for the actual material isn’t necessary if you read her first book, Glucose Revolution. But if you want an exact plan to follow to get started and lots of recipes, then you will want to check out this book as well. I liked that she broke down the four most important hacks to start and gives you an easy way to incorporate them into your life, one week at a time so it isn’t too overwhelming.
