I read 3️⃣ books last week.

📚The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman 4/5

Currently Reading:

I’ve heard good things about this gritty and heartfelt debut and I can tell it’s going to be hard to put down. Good thing it’s Spring Break! ON SALE 4/1/19

A harrowing debut novel of a tragic disappearance and one sister’s journey through the trauma that has shaped her life.”

  1. Youre the second person to say The Girl He Used to Know was good! It caught my attention because it took place partially at the University of Illinois.


  2. Your book festival sounds wonderful. There are several authors that I would love to meet and listen to, some I have not read anything from,but will now check out their books. The Bookish Book of Nina Hill looks really good. I am just finishing Never Tell by Lisa Gardner and listening to The Slaughter Man by Tony Parsons. Have a great week, Jaymi.
