Chose The Wrong Guy, Gave Him The Wrong Finger by Beth Harbison

Oh, boy. I hate giving bad reviews, but this is going to have to be one of them. I picked this up at Target because it was 20% off and I thought the name was clever. I skimmed the back cover and it seemed like a typical chick lit story, so I picked it up.Continue reading “Chose The Wrong Guy, Gave Him The Wrong Finger by Beth Harbison”

Throwback Thursday: Stay by Allie Larkin

In a post-breakup grab-the-chocolate-and-chick-lit stupor, I picked up Stay by Allie Larkin at my local Hastings. It was the spring of 2011, and to be honest, I was being dramatic—I didn’t even like the guy (incidentally, I met my now-husband several months after—but that’s a different story). It was the dog on the cover thatContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: Stay by Allie Larkin”

Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

I bought this on impulse walking by a Bargain Books rack in my local Hastings…after all, is it really possible to walk past a Bargain Books rack and not purchase something? I digress. This book was terrible. The first few chapters were about getting reacquainted with Andy, the protagonist from the Devil Wears Prada (oneContinue reading “Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger”

Friendship by Emily Gould

I wanted to so desperately to like this book. Love it, even. When you’re going through something in real life, it can often be comforting to read about someone else going through it in a story. It is for me, at least. In a way that only glimpsing into someone else’s life can, it makesContinue reading “Friendship by Emily Gould”

The Deep End of the Sea by Heather Lyons

Oh, hell. I hate giving bad reviews, especially on books that most people rave about–I certainly don’t want to put anyone off from reading this book, but it certainly wasn’t for me. I suspect I was an exception. Disclaimer: I’m all for romance novels. I do enjoy them. I do not enjoy the cheesy kind,Continue reading “The Deep End of the Sea by Heather Lyons”

Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen

A couple of weeks ago, right before school started, I wanted something light to end the summer with. The book version of a good old fashioned chick flick more or less. I’d had Lost Lake sitting on the shelf of my Nook for months now, just never getting around to reading it, and I wishContinue reading “Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen”

Chronicles of the Warlands 1-4 by Elizabeth Vaughan

After reading Stolen Songbird, falling in love with it, and then realizing I would have to wait until spring for book two—well, I was looking for a fantasy series with more than one book. I wanted several. I’m a total binge reader (obviously) and a series? A series is awesome. A series is the best.Continue reading “Chronicles of the Warlands 1-4 by Elizabeth Vaughan”

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

When I read The Husband’s Secret, I was on a vacation of sorts in Oregon with my in-laws and husband, and really just needed something to help me get away from everything that was going on. I was sort of desperate, and not much was drawing me in, but this – this one drew meContinue reading “The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty”

The One & Only by Emily Giffin

I was eager to begin reading The One & Only—partly because I love Emily Giffin and partly because I had just finished All Fall Down and was in the mood for a fun summer read. I didn’t read what the book was about before downloading it to my Nook and diving in. I’m glad IContinue reading “The One & Only by Emily Giffin”

Two Review: All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner

To be perfectly honest, I didn’t have high hopes for this novel. My last experience with Jennifer Weiner left me feeling let down and empty, so I have avoided the rest of her works for about a year now. When I saw that she had a new novel coming out, I was intrigued. Around theContinue reading “Two Review: All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner”
