My Reviews

 
Book Club Recommended
Boring, Adventurous, Dark
Slow start, surprising end

The book started slowly, but as the story unfolded I had to keep reading and the surprising and clever end made it worth the read.

Fun, Adventurous, Gloomy
Coming of age story from Scandinavia

Gloomy yet fun coming of age story from Sweden. An interesting look into the life of a young boy growing up in a small town.

The Paris Wife: A Novel by Paula Mclain
 
Book Club Recommended
Interesting, Informative, Insightful
Interesting story, unconvincingly written

I thought the story sounded interesting, but the voices in the book were not convincing to me. I would still recommend it for book clubs because it sparked an interesting conversation.

 
Poorly Written, Graphic, Romantic
So bad

Extremely poorly written, unsexy book about a psychopath who tries to lure a naive (and honestly pretty stupid) virgin into his web. There are so many much better options if you are looking for erotic novels. Or a good story.

The Sisterhood by Helen Bryan
 
Unconvincing, Confusing, Adventurous
Good idea, poorly executed

I thought the idea and concept behind the book seemed promising, but the book was poorly executed. There were too many strange coincidences that drove the story, and it didn\\\'t seem believable to me. The main character was also annoyingly naive.

However, the historical part was better, and the author should probably have stuck to that.

Interesting, but lacks literary qualities

I thought the insights were interesting, but the book could have needed some editing, because it felt repetitive at times. It would also be interesting with more facts about autism that could support the author's experiences.
