FRIDAY STARS – Your Weekly Must Knows 08/12/16

Sooooo I missed last Friday’s post, I’m sorry!  My husband took the week off, which sounds fabulous, but we were actually getting our house ready to sale since we’re moving.  After our cleaning and moving drama, I’m SO excited to say that I am at the airport right now, getting ready to board a plane to Palm Springs (California) to celebrate my sister-in-laws bachlorette party, woohoo!  I’ve never been there before, but I’m looking forward to lots of warm weather and relaxing by the pool.  Hope you have a fabulous weekend planned too!

In case you aren’t familiar with our Friday Star Posts, we like to take a look at what’s happened around here in the last week, what’s coming up that we are excited about and anything else that we may have to share!
♥ Enjoy!

Xenophobia S.B. Roozenboom Xenophobia by S.B. RoozenboomJen’s Review

4.5 Stars!  Quickly pulled me in & completely addicting!

It’s been two centuries since the Telumiras arrived and settled on Earth, changing everything —including the genetic makeup of humans.  Living in the section of land occupied by her own species, Ness Kimler tries to be a normal teenager, worrying about her career and finding a mate—questions to be answered at her upcoming graduation.  But before that happens, Ness accidentally crosses the Great Fence separating humans and Telumiras. For 200 years, the barrier has been in place, preserving the peace on a planet divided between two species.  What she finds is that the Fence isn’t just about keeping the aliens in—it’s about keeping the humans out.  And Ness Kimler just broke the rules.

the likeness tana french The Likeness (Dublin Murder Squad #2) by Tana French
Tana French astonished critics and readers alike with her mesmerizing debut novel, In the Woods. Now both French and Detective Cassie Maddox return to unravel a case even more sinister and enigmatic than the first. Six months after the events of In the Woods, an urgent telephone call beckons Cassie to a grisly crime scene. The victim looks exactly like Cassie and carries ID identifying herself as Alexandra Madison, an alias Cassie once used. Suddenly, Cassie must discover not only who killed this girl, but, more importantly, who is this girl? A disturbing tale of shifting identities, The Likeness firmly establishes Tana French as an important voice in suspense fiction.

it ends with us colleen hooverIt Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.  Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.  Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.  As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

  1. Good luck with the moving Jen. Are you staying in the same town? I’ve added both Xenophobia and Tanya French’s new book to my list. Have a lovely time in Palm Springs!

    • Thank you, Kim! We are just moving 10 minutes north. They’re two towns that kinda merge into each other anyways, so we won’t be far from some of our friends and at the same point we will also be closer to other friends lol.
      Palm Springs was inanely hot at 111, BUT so much fun! It was such a fabulous time and I didn’t want the weekend to end….welllll other than I desperately needed sleep! 😉

  2. I can’t wait to see the review for It Ends With Us. I just bought that one myself. I keep hearing good things about it!
