Anchored: Finding Hope in the Unexpected

Anchored: Finding Hope in the UnexpectedAnchored: Finding Hope in the Unexpected by Kayla Aimee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So I'm not a big fan of reading about babies or births or anything that hurts my heart about not having a child of my own, but for some reason I was drawn to this book... & so glad I did.

This is the story of Kayla Aimee & the birth of her daughter Scarlette as she came into the world earlier then she should have. The things that precious baby went through & the story of her life & the way that Kayla survived it all, with her humor, with her heart, with her family, with her faith & hope in God, its such a good story.

Its written in such a grabbing way. I didn't want to stop reading. One second, you are aching for this little tiny baby that is so small she can fit in your hand & the next, you are laughing at the memories that Kayla shares with you reflecting on her life & memories. It's such a mix of emotions - all making up a fantastic read.

I have since found out Kayla Aimee is a blogger & I just love reading her writing even more when I can. She's got such a joy that shines through her words. I'm going to be adding her to my list of people that I know that we'd be best friends if we lived near one another. :)

Big Little Lies

Big Little LiesBig Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've seen this book going around for awhile & I keep hearing about this author.

It didn't disappoint.

I was so intrigued by this book & couldn't wait to get to the end.

This is sort of a mystery book so I tread lightly not wanting to give anything away. The idea is though its a story of a group of ladies who all tied together through families, friends & children in kindergarten together. All leading up a a death on the night of their charity event. Who is it that dies? You don't know till you get to the end. But the ride is so fun, with each chapter starting or ending with 'interview' questions from a reporter trying to get to the bottom of the death.

I had so many thoughts on how it was all going to go down... & I was wrong.. which I LOVE.

I so enjoyed this book & can't wait to pull Liane Moriarty's next book off of my shelf now.
