Today I wanted to spill some of my favorite books I’ve read so far this year. If you know me, you know I love a good thriller that sucks you in! This is a bit of a change in pace compared to my normal blogs, but you guys always ask for book recommendations, so I’m here to help. Keep reading what I've read so far this year and quick blurb of each (without too many spoilers).
Pretty Little Wife by Darby Kane
