Thank you so much Forever / Hachette Book Group for sending this my way. First, I simply must comment on this beautiful cover. It sets the tone of a romantic wistfulness that really draws you in. Originally published in 2017 this is a wonderful way to attract in new readers.

This story is told via flashbacks from the now into the past. Really helping you understand the lives and emotions of two people that should have never let love pass them by.

Fans of second-chance-romance will love this one. And if you've already read it? Well, what a wonderful opportunity to read it again.

~Tanja

From the USA Today bestselling author of The Story of Us and Fisher's Light comes a new, standalone novel - a heartwrenching story about second chances that will make you fall in love all over again.
Five years. I would've stayed away longer if I hadn't received the letter. Not a day has gone by that I haven't thought about her, haven't missed her smile, haven't wished that things were different.
The last time I saw my two best friends, I vowed to not stand in the way of their happiness, even if that meant I couldn't be a part of their lives. Cameron James and her emerald-green eyes were too much of a temptation and I couldn't stay and watch them together. Cameron deserved better than me. She deserved him.
But now that I am back, things are different. I'm not going to stand by and watch the woman I've always loved slip away again. I'm done living my life with regrets and I'm ready to tell her the truth. And I'll do whatever it takes to show her that I always wished she was mine.

Thirty-Life CrisisRAFT~ by Lisa Schwartz


Thirty-Life Crisis: Navigating My Thirties, 
One Drunk Baby Shower at a Time Kindle Edition
by Lisa Schwartz


Out Now on AMAZON
My copy provided and partnered by
Hachette Book Group and Grand Central Publishing


First off... the forward by Youtuber Shane Dawson is a laughable sweetness only the best of friends can give. 

Thirty-Life Crisis is an honest telling of Lisa's journey via short chapter stories. It's funny, honest, and fresh. She had it right when she said: "This ain't your mothers Chicken Soup for the Soul".
My absolute favorite part was "A Guide to Staying Young at Heart and Looking Damn Good while doing it!" My most surprising find was tip #9 (No I won't tell you what it is! Go buy the book!) 

Honestly, this is one of the best pieces of advice anyone can give. We waste so much time going out of our way to please and accommodate that we tend to put ourselves last. I love the message of making yourself a priority. 

Simply wonderful! 
5 STARS

OUT A hilarious essay collection perfect for anyone dealing with the challenges, indignities, and celebrations that come with being a thirty-something by actor and YouTube star Lisa Schwartz (Lisbug).

THIRTYLIFE CRISIS Lisa Schwartz's stories and musings are all about watching her friends adult like pros, while she tries to understand why she doesn't want or can't seem to find all the things they have for herself. Like a big sister who's already seen it all, Lisa will take readers through her own life experiences to say that one thing we all need to hear: you are so not alone. Unabashed and unfiltered, Schwartz's voice and candor will appeal to anyone in their thirties who just can't deal with the never-ending Facebook feed of friends' engagement photos and baby pictures, the trials of figuring out where their passion meets their career, and everything in between.

So, if you've ever had to figure out...

Parenting Your Parents (Yikes)
Gender Reveal Parties (It's an actual thing.)
Discovering That Your Boyfriend Likes Boys (Surprise!)
Online Shopping Away Your Anxiety (Don't)
or Gender Reveal Parties (Seriously. It's an actual thing.)

The Secret Daughter by Kelly Rimmer

Provided and partnered by Forever / Grand Central Publishing



The Secret Daughter takes place in 1970s Australia. During this time forced adoptions were the norm and totally acceptable.  Its a hard look at what so many women had to endure against their will. This truly is a powerful read. One that is entirely engrossing, un-put-downable and a read that will stay with you.

One word... Powerful.
5 Stars
~Tanja



As I saw my new-born baby’s face for the first time I tried desperately to capture her face in my mind—to stamp it onto my eyelids. As she was taken from me I knew I might never see my daughter again.


38 years later…


‘You were adopted’. Three short words and Sabina’s life fractures. There would forever be a Before those words, and an After.

Pregnant with her own child, Sabina can’t understand how a mother could abandon her daughter, or why her parents have kept the past a secret.

Determined to find the woman who gave her away, what she discovers will change everything, not just for Sabina, but for the women who have loved her all these years.

From the bestselling author of Me Without You comes another touching, beautifully told story about the pain of separation and the enduring strength of love.

Haben by Haben Girma

Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law
by Haben Girma

OUT NOW
Get it on Amazon
Provided and partnered by Twelve / Grand Central Publishing

I am sure these words are going to be overused when describing Haben by Haben Girma, but here they are anyway. Amazing, Inspiring, Courageous, Incredible, and Humbling.

This is an autobiography that should be read and shared with anyone who feels they can't do something. It shows the power of self and the courage to keep doing better.

Five absolutely outstanding Stars.
~Tanja



The incredible life story of Haben Girma, the first Deafblind graduate of Harvard Law School, and her amazing journey from isolation to the world stage.

Haben grew up spending summers with her family in the enchanting Eritrean city of Asmara. There, she discovered courage as she faced off against a bull she couldn't see, and found in herself an abiding strength as she absorbed her parents' harrowing experiences during Eritrea's thirty-year war with Ethiopia. Their refugee story inspired her to embark on a quest for knowledge, traveling the world in search of the secret to belonging. She explored numerous fascinating places, including Mali, where she helped build a school under the scorching Saharan sun. Her many adventures over the years range from the hair-raising to the hilarious.

Haben defines disability as an opportunity for innovation. She learned non-visual techniques for everything from dancing salsa to handling an electric saw. She developed a text-to-braille communication system that created an exciting new way to connect with people. Haben pioneered her way through obstacles, graduated from Harvard Law, and now uses her talents to advocate for people with disabilities.

HABEN takes readers through a thrilling game of blind hide-and-seek in Louisiana, a treacherous climb up an iceberg in Alaska, and a magical moment with President Obama at The White House. Warm, funny, thoughtful, and uplifting, this captivating memoir is a testament to one woman's determination to find the keys to connection.
