My Reviews

We Need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver
 
Dark, Dramatic, Difficult

Depressing and very dark. Difficult to read at times. The writing was unnecessarily wordy at times which prompted me to skim through portions of the book and I didn’t appear to miss any plot developments by doing so.

The Nightingale: A Novel by Kristin Hannah
 
Dramatic, Informative, Inspiring

This is a fantastic tribute to the untold story of women in France during the German occupation. The female characters are all dynamic and real. The story is powerful, heart wrenching and inspiring all at once.
I highly recommend.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Something in the Water: A Novel by Catherine Steadman
 
Addictive, Dramatic, Dark

 
Boring, Confusing, Beautiful

While this book as glimpses of good writing and powerful messages, most of it is a hot mess. I switched between audible and kindle version to try to get through it and both versions were tough. The hashtags are distracting. The made up words are confusing and seem gratuitous. There’s just two more letters to write, Phoebe! Finish the word.

I think this book is similar to its title. Trash. But it’s okay. There’s a few funny moments but not enough to make the book worth the purchase or time to read it.

Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
 
Inspiring, Life Changing, Optimistic

There were some really great well put messages in this book. Some of the mantras got repetitive. Overall I felt inspired by this book and the author’s story. She worked very hard to accomplish her goals and continues to push to achieve more. She is self made and determined. I found her to be relatable.

Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks, Sarah Pekkanen
 
Interesting, Dramatic, Addictive

A true page turner book filled with twists and turns. The writing style was interesting and different.

Don’t skip the epilogue!

The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin
