Sock Sunday & Must Reads

Sock Sunday & Must Reads

Todayโ€™s #socksunday is being dedicated entirely to reading books on my #tbr that I have been exceptionally excited for - and that means @karinslaughterauthor as this woman ranks way, WAY up my faves list. ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚

I have been impatiently awaiting this one and I have been hearing amazing things about it (not shocked), so honestly, I canโ€™t think of a better way to start a new month and a new season than with a book that I know is going to be perfectly intriguing and satisfying. Check out the synopsis below! ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚

New season also means debuting a brand new pair of @peonyandmoss reading socks! This pair is the exact right pair for autumn in my opinion, something about them makes me think of spiced apple cider, piles of leaves, pumpkin patches and cozy sweaters. Which makes me just a LITTLE more excited for this next season. ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚

You can get your very own pair of coziness AND get a discount at check out using CANDICE10. Honestly itโ€™s a deal too good to pass up for this level of cozy, Iโ€™m telling you. ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚

QOTD: What is your favourite way to start a new season?! Changing out wardrobes? Fall cleaning? Jumping into a new genre? Come tell me all about it. ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚

Happy Sunday!!!! 


Pieces of Her: What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all . . . ?

Andrea knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows sheโ€™s spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle; she knows sheโ€™s never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows sheโ€™s never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, donโ€™t we?

But all that changes when a trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years sheโ€™s been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one would ever find her. But now sheโ€™s been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again.

The police want answers and Lauraโ€™s innocence is on the line, but she wonโ€™t speak to anyone, including her own daughter. Andrea is on a desperate journey following the breadcrumb trail of her motherโ€™s past. And if she canโ€™t uncover the secrets hidden there, there may be no future for either one of them.
