What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship, and Love 3/5
If you are a Real Housewives of New York fan then you are familiar with Carole Radziwill, but you may not have known she wrote a book. I had this on my list for years since she mentioned it on the show and finally picked it up when the library was out of a few other things I wanted to read. I was a bit bummed with it though. Carole IS excellent at putting her feelings down, but I wasn't captivated enough. I read it consistently almost every day, but it took me weeks to finish because I wasn't fully enthralled in it. I think the part I didn't like the most was how she jumps around in the book due to the sections she puts everything into. It's a story about love and loss and it definitely was very interesting to hear the details about her husband Anthony, the nephew of President John F. Kennedy and his death especially because of how strong he was. The book did get a lot of excellent reviews, so if you've been wanting to read it I would go ahead and pick it up.
Holy cow. I had been hearing everyone talk about this for months and I finally picked it up from the library. I was SO looking forward to reading it based on everyone's recommendations and comments about it. The story is about a girl named Mia who comes from a very affluent family and one day enters a bar to meet her boyfriend but leaves with a stranger. A one night stand turns into a story about captivity when Colin keeps her in a secluded cabin. Detective Gabe Hoffman is put on the case of the missing daughter and stops at nothing to find her and find out why it's all happened. I don't want to say I was bored with the story, but it didn't have me dying to read more and keep me up all night like other stories have. What I did love was the final few pages of the book...I seriously got chills when it came to the ending. I re-read it three times because it was so good. The ending is enough reason to read the book, and the story is definitely a good one if you like mysteries.

I was a bit all over the board last month with my reads, and definitely didn't read as many books as I wanted to but I'm excited to pick up some more in the next few months and get back in the groove.
Any good recommendations for me to read next?
