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 […]

I’ve Read Stuff

I’ve Read Stuff

   All These Perfect Strangers by Aoife Clifford was a gripping read in which you are never sure if the narrator is being honest or not. Told in three different timelines it was confusing at first, but then I found myself sucked in. I enjoyed the road Clifford took me down and […]

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 Last Good Girl – Allison Leotta

The Last Good Girl – Allison Leotta

I don’t generally like getting into a series at any point after book one. I like to have a grounding in the character and the history of them. I was unaware that The Last Good Girl was part of a series when I requested it. I loved the synopsis and was intrigued […]

Eligible – Curtis Sittenfeld

Eligible – Curtis Sittenfeld

 I first came across Curtis Sittenfeld with her debut Prep back in 2005. I really enjoyed it but did not read anything else she had written. When Eligible came on my radar, I decided it was high time to read Sittenfeld again. Eligible is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Since it has […]
