Everything Must Go by Camille Pagan



Release Date: April 26, 2022

About The Book:

Laine Francis believes there’s a place for everything—and New York, where her family lives, isn’t her place. But no sooner does the professional organizer’s marriage begin to unravel than her sisters drop another bomb on her: their mother, Sally, may have dementia, and they need Laine to come home.

Laine agrees to briefly return to Brooklyn. After all, bringing order to chaos is what she does best. To Laine’s relief, Sally seems no more absentminded than usual. So Laine vows to help her mother maintain her independence, then hightail it back to Michigan.

Except Laine’s plans go awry when she runs into her former best friend, Ben, and realizes she finally has a chance to repair their fractured relationship. Then she discovers that memory loss isn’t the only thing Sally’s been hiding, forcing Laine to decide whether to reveal a devastating truth to her sisters—and whether to follow her heart when it means breaking her mother’s.


My Thoughts 

I loved this book! This book gave me all the feels! Do you ever have a book that you have to put down because...well you know...life...but all you can think about is picking it back up. This was that book for me! I kept thinking...hmm I wonder what Laine is up to now? 

Laine left NYC to move to Michigan to start a family- with her husband Josh and her dog Belle. Yet Josh ALWAYS had an excuse...and Laine's not getting any younger...

As if there wasn't enough going on in her marriage...her sisters urger her to rush back to NYC...because their mom Sally...is acting strange...

I absolutely feel in love with Sally! That we got to see her POV was touching...heartwarming and sometimes funny. The family dynamics were fantastic! Let's not forget Sally had some secrets of her own!!! well I didn't expect that!

Okay so as you can tell I loved this book! I think the thing I loved the most was how real it is. This is life...right here.  The ups....the downs..how things don't go as planned. It's not often that you can say that a book is exactly true to life- you can with this book. It made me love the characters even more. I wanted to hug Laine and tell her...girl it's going to be okay....but would it?

Sister Stardust by Jane Green


Release Date: April 5, 2022


About The Book:

Claire grew up in a small town, far from the glitz and glamour of London. Ridiculed by her stepmother, Linda, and harboring a painful crush on her brother's best friend, she has begun to outgrow the life laid out before her. On the cusp of adulthood in the late 1960s, Claire yearns for the adventure and independence of a counterculture taking root across the world.


One day a chance encounter leads to an unexpected opportunity. Whispers of a palace in Morocco. A getaway where famous artists, models, fashion designers and musicians—even the Rolling Stones—have been known to visit.


When Claire arrives in Marrakesh, she's swept up in a heady world of music, drugs 2and communal living. But one magnetic young woman seems to hold sway over the entire scene. Talitha Getty, socialite wife of a famous oil heir, has pulled everyone from Yves Saint Laurent to Marianne Faithfull into her orbit. Yet when she meets Claire, the pair instantly connect. As they grow closer, and the inner circle tightens, the realities of Talitha's precarious life set off a chain of dangerous events that could alter Claire's life forever.



MY THOUGHTS

 I have been a huge fan of her books for years…so I am so excited to be on the book tour for Sister Stardust. Thank you soo much to @hanoversquarepress @janegreenauthor @harpercollins for this gorgeous gifted copy! ❤️

Jane Green has been my go-to author for more years than I can count! She has seen me through the highs and lows…Jane’s books were there to comfort me…❤️ I can just get wrapped up and lost in them. I must say.. she knocked it clear out of the park with this one! 😍 5 shiny stars ⭐️


With Sister Stardust I was swept away to a glamorous life in a palace in Morocco. Drug fueled nights and days… partying and living with some of the most famous people of the 1960’s. 🥂

My favorite part of this book is that we get to see this all from the POV of Ceecee. Just a sweet young girl that finds herself swept up in Talitha Getty’s world. Married to an oil heir.. Talitha has a magnetic energy…she was gorgeous.. talented..alluring..and she could throw one heck of a party.. 🥃🍸🥂🍾Even the Rolling Stones were known to frequent the palace. 🤭

I absolutely loved how Claire started out and ended this story for her daughter! As Claire took a stroll down memory lane we got a look into the life of the 1960’s… as this is based on a true person… you must check out @sisterstardustt Instagram page! The photos Jane has collected of Talitha Getty are amazing…I stalk it on a regular basis. 🤫🤫🤫

Thank you so much Jane for letting us all into Talitha’s life. It was fun, intriguing and terrifying at times as Talitha pushed the drugs,sex and rock n roll to the limits.. and beyond.❤️

Obviously I loved this book!! What is your favorite @janegreenauthor book? Have you read this one?

❤️ If you could hang out with someone from the 60’s who would it be? I love the whole mini skirt and boots 👢 look. I think I would have been loving the 60’s lifestyle… unfortunately that was well before my time.

Pub date was April 5th!! 🏃‍♀️ Get your copy!!
