The Singles Game and We Are All Made of Stars

The Singles Game and We Are All Made of Stars

 I have all five of Lauren Weisberger’s previous books, so when I heard about The Singles Game, I knew I must read it. She has a way of making characters come alive and you can feel what they feel and see what they see and I couldn’t wait to experience […]

The Hopefuls – Jennifer Close

The Hopefuls – Jennifer Close

The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close was a book I had so much hope for. I love Washington D.C. based drama TV shows, and I was hoping that would translate well to the written word. I was nervous as I have read a slew of NYC based books lately and they […]

Falling – Jane Green

Falling – Jane Green

 I’m going to start this review by clearly stating that I heart Jane Green. Her book Jemima J is one of my all time favorites and I own almost all of her books. I was super excited when I heard about Falling as it was her returning to romance. Emma […]

The Girls in the Garden – Lisa Jewell

The Girls in the Garden – Lisa Jewell

The Girls in the Garden by Lisa Jewel is an interesting look at what happens when trust is given openly and what happens when a community no longer feels that trust. Peoples’ pasts and motives are dissected and everyone many not be who they seem. In a neighborhood that backs onto […]

The Wedding Sisters – Jamie Brenner

The Wedding Sisters – Jamie Brenner

The Wedding Sisters by Jamie Brenner sounded like such a cute read. Three sisters get engaged the same year and a triple wedding is planned. I expected hijinks and cute situations and fun. Instead I read a tale of selfish people and an intense need to be seen as high class. […]

The Children – Ann Leary

The Children – Ann Leary

The Children by Ann Leary took a bit for me to get into. I was unsure if I liked the story for the first third as the narrator was doling out very small pieces of a large puzzle that I was not aware of. As the pieces began to fall […]

Lies and Other Acts of Love – Kristy Woodson Harvey

Lies and Other Acts of Love – Kristy Woodson Harvey

Lies and Other Acts of Love had two great stories in it. Octogenarian Lovey and her granddaughter Annabelle. I really liked each story arc, separately. However, when woven together it made a bit of a mishmash out of the flow. On their own, either story would have popped, but the way […]
