Review: Can You Keep A Secret?

Can You Keep A Secret?
by Sophie Kinsella

Buy From Amazon

Sophie Kinsella is one of my absolute favorite authors of all time. I was excited when “Can You Keep a Secret?” came out. Somehow I knew that it would be as good as the Shopaholic series – and I was right! It was a fantastically funny and touching read.

The main character, Emma Corrigan, is your normal 25-year old and somewhat-insecure woman. She is trying to get a promotion at work, has a fantastic boyfriend, and is very happy with life, or so she thinks. On an extremely turbulent flight back from a business trip from Glasgow, Emma’s secrets unwillingly spill out to a total stranger next to her. Continue reading Review: Can You Keep A Secret?

Review: True Love (And Other Lies)

True Love (and Other Lies)
by Whitney Gaskell
reviewed by Rian Montgomery
Buy From Amazon

Clare Spencer, main heroine of True Love and Other Lies, is a travel writer – but not the glamorous kind. She works for a magazine called “Sassy Seniors”, and gets stuck traveling to places that are suitable mainly for senior citizens. Not only that, but the slightly sarcastic and witty twist she injects into the articles she writes are always being shot down by her editor. The story starts with Clare boarding a plane and getting stuck sitting next to an irate Indian woman who keeps complaining non-stop to her husband seated behind her, but the guy sitting next to the woman’s husband offers to switch seats.

Review: Joyride

by Lindsay Faith Rech

Buy From Amazon

Ever wonder what it would be like to have a best friend from childhood who would remain your best friend forever? Or even a group of friends? Lindsay Faith Rech’s latest book explores just that possibility, and more. This is no ordinary chick lit book, I might add. Instead, this book is a wonderful novel filled with characters that you just don’t want to leave at the end, and a story that is more like an experience then just a story.

“Joyride” is told from Stella’s point of view. The story begins in the present tense one night when Stella gets a phone call from her best childhood friend Emily, who now lives in Europe. Continue reading Review: Joyride

Alternate Beauty

Have you ever imagined a world where overweight is considered beautiful? A world where the skinnier you are, the more you are ridiculed? That is the concept of what “Alternate Beauty” by Andrea Rains Waggener is.

Meet Tabitha. She is overweight and generally unhappy. She is tired of being constantly put down by her mother, a thin socialite. The woman she rents an apartment from is not the nicest person around either. Worst of all, she’s about to lose her job because she is getting too heavy, Continue reading Review: Alternate Beauty
