From the Sideline – Amy Avanzino

From the Sideline – Amy Avanzino

 From the Sideline by Amy Avanzino is a book that I so enjoyed reading. I liked the author’s first book, Wake-Up Call, and when I was approached to read the second in her series, I signed up immediately. And then, probably the biggest thing that has happened to me in […]

Clean Break – Abby Vegas

Clean Break – Abby Vegas

Clean Break by Abby Vegas was a read I did not expect. I was thinking it would be a straightforward girl meets bad boy story, but instead it was a nuanced tale of a young woman struggling through heartbreak and depression who meets a man that is much more than he seems. […]

Stars Over Sunset Boulevard – Susan Meissner

Stars Over Sunset Boulevard – Susan Meissner

Stars Over Sunset Boulevard by Susan Meissner had the potential to be great. Instead it was good but lacked the emotional pull needed. Violet and Audrey are both secretaries at the movie studio filming Gone With the Wind in 1938. They become roommates out of necessity and friends out of shared […]

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 […]

The Year We Turned Forty – Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke

The Year We Turned Forty – Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke

Before I read The Year We Turned Forty I had a chance to meet Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke at the Tucson Festival of Books. They were so nice and gracious I was nervous going into the read. What if I didn’t like it? I loved them, so I hoped […]

The History of Great Things – Elizabeth Crane

The History of Great Things – Elizabeth Crane
