TWIST Tips: Spring Break Page-Turners: Betty’s Book Club


Yes, it’s almost here … SPRING BREAK!


Time to pack the bags, kids, sunscreen and the perfect book! We don’t know about you, but we think the BEST books recs come from friends. We’ve turned to the experts at Brow Betty – avid readers and fun fanatics – to share their top reviews (the good, the bad and the ugly) from the Betty Book Club:

  1. The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern – 2012
    “This one is so hard to describe but it was just so beautiful and mind-blowing I could not put it down! It takes place in the early 1900’s, the overall main setting is a mysterious black and white circus that suddenly appears in towns overnight. It follows two magicians since their youth, being taught by different mentors, and unbeknownst to them they are pitted against each other in a lifelong game of magic. “
  2. The Woman in Cabin 10 – Ruth Ware -2016
    “The first half of the book moved really slow and all the character names were so confusing I had a hard time keeping track of everyone. It takes place on a private cruise that has been set up to include the wealthy owners, a few of their friends and various news writers and photographers. If you are looking for a no brainer, somewhat of a page turner you might like this one. Stick to one glass of wine prior to reading or you’ll just get lost.”
  3. Valley of the Gods: A Silicon Valley Story – Alexandra Wolfe – 2017
    “Grabbed this one because I am so curious about what really happens in Silicon Valley. It was an easy, witty read with some interesting stories! The book follows several kids who opt out of very prestigious colleges to live and work in the craziness of Silicon Valley. It has some great name dropping and story telling of how these kids rise, fall and then rise up again in hopes of becoming the next Zuckerberg.”
  4. All is Not Forgotten – Wendy Walker – 2016
    “I have no idea what this is about so I am excited to read! It’s a long one so here we go…”
  5. Next on the nightstand: The Nix, I’ll take you there, Them, All grown up, Just Mercy, The Queen’s Necklace.
