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 Summer That Melted Everything – Tiffany McDaniel

The Summer That Melted Everything – Tiffany McDaniel

    All love leads to cannibalism. I know that now. Sooner or later, our hearts will devour, if not the object of our affections, our very selves. The Summer That Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel is special. It is the type of book other books aspire to be. It is […]

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 […]

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 […]
