My Reviews

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
 
Romantic, Interesting, Beautiful
an uncharacteristic love story

This book is beautiful. However, it is very different than what you might expect. Read it with an open mind.

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
 
Dramatic, Insightful, Interesting
a very dark novel

I had a hard time with this one. So many others have read it and said it was a favorite, so I tried it. I have to say, it wasn't my favorite. It was much darker than I usually enjoy. I definitely didn't "enjoy" reading this book. I finished it, and felt it was okay. I would be careful who I recommended this book to, as it is surely not for everyone.

 
Adventurous, Dramatic, Interesting
a great love story

This is a beautiful love story ... not a trashy romance, but a story about a great love. Jacob loves both Marlena and the circus ... as well as many animals. This was a great book!

 
Dramatic, Optimistic, Interesting
A delightful read!

I love this new series! I love the mystery novel mixed in with some romance and humor! I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a some lighthearted suspense!

 
Romantic, Adventurous, Dramatic
not your traditional vampire story

First of all, I'm not a young adult. Secondly, I never read vampire stories or anything in the "fantasy" genre. However, my 17-year-old sister recommended this book to me and I thought I'd try it. I loved it! I've added the next two in the series to my list. I think I liked it so much because the point of the story isn't the fact that the character is a vampire, but it's about the relationships involved. The bookflap says it well. "This is a love story with bite."

Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger
 
another great book from Lauren Weisberger

If you loved "The Devil Wears Prada" then you will love this. It offers insight into a world that many of us know nothing about. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this!

New Moon (Twilight, Book 2) by Stephenie Meyer
 
Adventurous, Dramatic, Romantic
a great story ... continued!

I loved Twilight and I loved New Moon! The references to Romeo and Juliet were fabulous. I'm not usually a fan of vampire and fantasy stories, but this book was a great read. I would encourage others to read and discuss this book!

 
another great coffee house mystery!

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
 
Persuasive, Inspiring, Insightful
a true classic!

Wife for Hire by Janet Evanovich
 
a feel good story!

Eclipse (Twilight, Book 3) by Stephenie Meyer
 
Boring, Adventurous, Dark
a great chapter in the Twilight series!

I've said before that I didn't think I would be a fan of this series, but I am. I have throroughly enjoyed reading all of them.

 
Romantic, Fun, Interesting
lots to discuss!

This book has a section in the back with questions for discussion. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It's easy to form opinions, therefore very easy to discuss!

 
mixed feelings

I love all of the Stephanie Plum novels. This wasn't my favorite, but it's still good. I read it in a day! It's only a between-the-numbers novel, so that would probably explain why it's not my favorite.

 
Dark, Confusing, Boring
much darker than I expected
