Recent reads.

The Marriage Lie by Kimberly Belle- Sometimes a good psychological thriller is very entertaining, as long as it's not too dark and twisty. This story is about Iris and Will, who seem to have the "perfect" marriage, but one day that all comes to a halt as Iris thought Will left on a business trip to Florida, but a plane crashed on it's way to Seattle and Will was (apparently) one of many casualties. Iris goes looking for answers and finds a story about her husband she never knew. The ending was crazy to me. 

Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks- I actually didn't intend to read this book, but we were going on a long car ride and I was looking for a book to read that was immediately available on our library's app (many of the super popular titles have a long wait), and stumbled upon this one. But I certainly wasn't upset- I do love me a good Nicholas Sparks book every once in a while. It was about love, of course, in the story of Hope, who is from North Carolina, and Tru, who is from Zimbabwe but meets Hope on a trip. They fell in love but were separated for a long time, and ended up coming back together again many years later. The story of how they ended up back together again is intricate and neat.

The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine- I was very interested in this book because I had heard several people talk about it, and there was a very long wait for it on our library's app (way longer than most books), so I figured it must be good. It was very intriguing! The first part is told from the point of view of Amber, who becomes Daphne's best friend and ends up having an affair with Jackson, Daphne's husband. The second part is told from the point of view of Daphne. The different perspectives of the same situation are fascinating.
