Weekly Book Club {6.27.18}


These are 2 more books that I downloaded from my local library’s overdrive ebook collection. I’ve been doing that a lot more now that my library seems to get the new release books every week. I’m saving a ton of money on book purchases these days Ha!


1. Lie To Me by J.T. Ellison– They built a life on lies. Sutton and Ethan Montclair’s idyllic life is not as it appears. They seem made for each other, but the truth is ugly. Consumed by professional and personal betrayals and financial woes, the two both love and hate each other. As tensions mount, Sutton disappears, leaving behind a note saying not to look for her. Ethan finds himself the target of vicious gossip as friends, family and the media speculate on what really happened to Sutton Montclair. As the police investigate, the lies the couple have been spinning for years quickly unravel. Is Ethan a killer? Is he being set up? Did Sutton hate him enough to kill the child she never wanted and then herself? The path to the answers is full of twists that will leave the reader breathless.

My Rating: 4 Stars

This was a solid 4 star read for me. It hooked me from the very first sentence and I had to know what was going to happen. There were some twists and turns and things I didn’t see coming which I always appreciate. It held my interest for the whole book. I did see where the ending was going ahead of time but I still enjoyed the journey to get there. I will say that the 2 main characters are pretty unlikable but for me, I didn’t need to like them to enjoy this story. I liked the dual point of view between Sutton and Ethan and the unknown point of view. I don’t want to spoil anything about this story which is making it hard to give my opinion. Just read it!


2. Decluttering at the Speed of Light by Dana K. White– While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, many of us simply can’t purge it all and start from nothing. Yet a home with too much stuff is a home that is difficult to maintain, so where do we begin? Add in paralyzing emotional attachments and constant life challenges, and it can feel almost impossible to make real decluttering progress. In Decluttering at the Speed of Life, decluttering expert and author Dana White identifies the mind-sets and emotional challenges that make it difficult to declutter. Then, in her signature humorous approach, she provides workable solutions to break through these struggles and get clutter out–for good! But more than simply offering strategies, Dana dives deep into how to implement them, no matter the reader’s clutter level or emotional resistance to decluttering. She helps identify procrasticlutter–the stuff that will get done eventually so it doesn’t seem urgent–as well as how to make progress when there’s no time to declutter.

My Rating: 3.5 Stars

I downloaded this e-book from my local library on a whim while I was in the middle of moving chaos. I’m determined not to allow any clutter in our new house. None. Nope. Not any at all. This book was good and offered some good strategies. If you’re new to decluttering and organizing then you will get a whole lot out of this book. If you’re deep into decluttering then you probably won’t get as much out of it but it still offers some good strategies for everyone.
