Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty Publication Date: July 29, 2014 Pages: 462 (kindle)  Genre: Fiction/Contemporary My Goodreads Rating: 4 Stars
Goodreads Synopsis:  Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:

Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?).

Never Ever by Sara Saedi Publication Date: June 21, 2016 Pages: 320 (hardcover)  Genre: Young Adult My Goodreads Rating: 4 Stars
Goodreads Synopsis:

Wylie Dalton didn’t believe in fairy tales or love at first sight.

Then she met a real-life Peter Pan.


When Wylie encounters Phinn—confident, mature, and devastatingly handsome—at a party the night before her brother goes to juvie, she can’t believe how fast she falls for him. And that’s before he shows her how to fly.

Soon Wylie and her brothers find themselves whisked away to a mysterious tropical island off the coast of New York City where nobody ages beyond seventeen and life is a constant party. Wylie’s in heaven: now her brother won’t go to jail and she can escape her over-scheduled life with all its woes and responsibilities—permanently.

But the deeper Wylie falls for Phinn, the more she begins to discover has been kept from her and her brothers. Somebody on the island has been lying to her, but the truth can’t stay hidden forever.

Reading Recap - May & June

Image
Okay, so it's now July and I'm totally slacking on posts that aren't reviews. The end of May and the beginning of June were insane. I just got back from a week long trip to a land without proper WiFi and I didn't have enough time to throw something together before then. (Maybe I've been a little lazy, sue me.)

But, alas, it's summertime! I'm going to post my top reads for May and June like in previous months' recaps and I hope you find something that sparks your interest! (You might have seen some of these on other lists before, if you follow.) 
Five Star Reads: Read A Court of Thorn and Roses first, please.
