I've read some pretty good books lately and as you know, I love sharing about my current reads with you! 

Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty

Liane Moriarty was my favorite new (to me) author of 2014. I loved The Husband's Secret and What Alice Forgot so I decided to download "Three Wishes" on my trip to Vegas in January. While I wasn't as obsessed with this book as the others, it was still a very quick read. I found myself smiling and laughing out loud at times. If you have sisters, or a large family, this is a great read. (My review of the Husband's Secret and What Alice Forgot)

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

If you like to read, I'm sure you've heard of The Girl on the Train as it's one of the "hottest" books out right now. I'm a huge fan of the thriller/mystery genre, so I picked this up as soon as I read the synopsis online. I felt that this book was very well-written in comparison to a lot of the books out there that have been compared to Gone Girl. Yet, it wasn't as predictable as Sharp Objects or the Silent Wife, both of which have been compared to gone girl, which I appreciated. I definitely recommend this book if you're looking for a can't-put-it-down quick read. (My review of Sharp Objects and Silent Wife)

In the Woods by Tana French

Again, I have a thing for mysteries/thrillers and after Jackie recommended this series I immediately bought the first book. Admittedly, I forgot about it for awhile but. There is something about buying an e-book versus a physical book that makes me less likely to dive in right away. Anyways, I could not put this book down! I kept thinking of True Detective as I was reading it and jumped from theory to theory. Up until the very end I still had no idea "who did it" and was up way past my bedtime raicng to the end of the book. Thankfully, this is only the first book in the Dublin Murder Squad series and The Likeness is next.
