Hmm. Well. Not too good, not too bad. For Home for the Holidays, I didn't like it the first time, and then I reread it and began to like it. I reread this one, and it still just struck me as cheesy and super unrealistic.

Like how everything ties together perfectly. If you go back and look at all the descriptions of Sophie before, she's obviously not trying to be nice.

Also, Heather Vogel Frederick has a lot of errors in all her books. Like, when Jess's goat Sundance has a kid, Jess names it Sunbe...more

Although I relished the references to one of my all-time classic reads, Jane Eyre, and enjoyed the idea of a Mother-Daugher Book Club, allowing mothers and daughters to bond through literature, there was too little of the book club in this title, to my way of thinking. I'd have forgiven that if all these girls hadn't been such super-achievers. It's not that I have anything against superachievers, mind you. I simply found it hard to believe that these five high school sophomores had already accom...more

I really enjoyed this book. Wish You Were Eyre is the 5th book in the mother daughter book club series. Unfortunately, it is the last, and I will miss all the characters. What I enjoyed about not only this book but the whole series was that I really knew and understood every single character. They were well developed, well described, and I kept wanting to read more.
In Wish You Were Eyre, Megan Wong and her grandmother Gigi get to go to Paris over spring break. Megan being a teen fashion designer...more

This year the Mother-Daughter Book Club will be reading Jane Eyre. Not everything always goes smoothly for the girls, but they at least have their friends in the book club to help them through the storms of life. When Sophie Fairfax comes to live with the Wong's for a year jealousy flairs. The girls band together to pull off a prank that will put Sophie in her place, but will it backfire on them?

Emma is feeling that her boyfriend Stewart is paying too much attention to Sophie. When they both are...more

I am in the acknowledgements which means that this book is awesome!

Okay since that does not constitute a book review or anything except gloating I will review the book. The girls are reading Jane Eyre and there is excitement in Concord, there is a French exchange student Sophie who comes to stay with Megan and her family. Each of the girls learn a lesson relating to Jane Eyre. Megan gets to go to Paris with Gigi for Fashion Week and the descriptions of Paris made me miss it so much. I also love...more

This book tells a story about a mother-daughter book club who has five main characters. Each chapter is about a different girl. This book has some drama when an exchange girl from Paris moves into Megan's house because GiGi invited her in. The mother-daughter book club is reading a book by Charlotte Brontë called Jane Eyre. The author tells a wonderful tale of five girls each looking for thier "Mr.Rochester." I absolutely am in love with this book! I highly suggest if you like books that have di...more

IT WAS GREAT! I cried (just a little) when I was done.

The Mother-Daughter Book Club is back, and for this final installment, they are reading Jane Eyre.The girls are all struggling with various issues-- Becca is waitressing at Pies and Prejudice, but Megan's grandmother is buys planning their trip to Paris... and gets involved in a romance! Megan is distraught that Sophie, the cousin of Annabelle (aka Stinkerbelle), is an exchange student from France living with her family. Megan's mom is running for mayor, and the girls are helping. Jess is involv...more

I don't read many continuing books in a series for review on Mother Daughter Book Club.com. My review philosophy is that if the first book in a series is strong enough to stand on its own, then it's a good choice for book clubs to read and discuss while letting individual members decide whether to continue with the series.

I occasionally make exceptions and the six-novel-strong The Mother-Daughter Book Club series by Heather Vogel Frederick is one of those. How could I not read a fictional series...more

Let's be clear: this book deserves 4 stars. It was one of my favourite in the Mother-Daughter bookclub series and that means a lot, as I enjoyed them all.

BUT... I had to take one star off for all the French mistakes. When you have characters supposed to be native French speakers, please check their French. And by that I don't mean try and remember your high school lessons, I mean, give the book to be proofread by a French native speaker. I swear, they aren't hard to find in the USA.
Also, please...more

Okay, so I enjoyed this book, especially the references to Jane Eyre which is one of my favorite books of all time! But I thought the girls' stories got a little unrealistic. I realize it's still a story, but it seems to me a bit much (for a realistic fiction about teens) to have one friend be on a nationally winning hockey team (with an ex-supermodel/tv star mom), one to be a paid fashion designer (and go to Paris Fashion week at 16), one to be a star singer (with a ex-soap star mom), AND one t...more

I like these books overall, and I really have enjoyed reading this series. But, there was one thing in this book that really turned me off.

In every book of the series, the author consistently praises every single book mentioned and puts on a pedestal every author. In this book, even Cassidy, the reluctant reader, loves Jane Eyre. But, for some unknown reason, the author totally pans The Scarlet Letter. She could have simply not even mentioned The Scarlet Letter, but she seems to have gone out of...more

I picked up this book looking for something that might tempt my eleven year old daughter. I had high hopes for it but came away quite disappointed. It was a struggle to finish. I had trouble telling the girls apart-- chapters alternate with the story being told in first person by the five? six? (See, I can't even remember how many) friends who are members of this mother-daughter book club. The biggest challenge was that there was very little difference in voice for each of these characters, maki...more

I always loved the Mother Daughter Book Club series and this book made me even love it more! Frederick always does an awesome job with her writing!

Megan: A lot is going on with this girl! Her birthday is coming up, and as an early present, Mr and Mrs Wong get her a new white fluffy kitten! When "Stinkerbelle's" cousin moves in with the family from France as an exchange student. When Gigi and Megan go to Paris for Fashion Week, Gigi drops a surprising bomb on the family. She's getting married! Al...more

Wish You Were Eyre: I love the Mother Daughter Book Club Series, and it was really sad to me that this was the last book. The series mainly appealed to me because it had realistic characters, put in realistic situations. I like how each character has their own unique identity which isn't blown up. the author doesn't make the book perfect, and the characters all have their flaws, which made it a great read. I really think I would have thought about Sophie in the same way from Megan's point of vie...more

The mother daughter book club is a great book I will never forget. This book is about all of these girls that have formed a book club with their mothers. The girls have different personalities and different problems. This really relates to life because you do have problems like Megan (a character in the book) where your jealous of them because their smarter than you or prettier than you. But that can't let you down. It also relates to real life because you can't judge someone by their cover if t...more

Honestly, I remember liking the other books more than this one. Might be because it's been a while since I read it but I still remember the characters and such.

Cons
It was a good read although I did find that I kept having to flip to the beginning of the chapter because each character's POV wasn't portrayed very differently. Each character is supposed to have a unique personality, but the writing deters from it and made me feel as if it was all the same person.
Writing was a bit choppy and cut of...more

Fifth book in the MDBC series, and even though Jane Eyre is not my favorite book (I agreed with one of the girls, I forget which now, that I wanted to throw the book across the room (JE that is) during the whole section with cousin St. John), I always enjoy reading these books. I loved all the Betsy-Tacy references and Becca visiting Mankato MN. I also really love Gigi! I do hope this isn't the last one dear Heather???

I picked this up from a box at work, mostly because the cute title amused me. It is probably a good book for tweens and young teens. I think it pretty accurately captures the weird mindset of young teens, which is probably why I didn't love it, actually. The young characters aren't catty, exactly, but they do have that kind of jump-to-conclusions tunnel-vision mentality that I recall from my own adolescence. The plot kept me reading, though the girls' lives are ridiculously privileged and absurd...more

Wish You Were Eyre is the last book of the Mother-Daughter Book Club series. I was very satisfied with the ending, but It annoyed me that everything seemed to work out perfectly. Also, I felt like one character’s relationship was kind of unrealistic because it happened in such a short amount of time, and it was a long-distance relationship. However, one part of the book that I enjoyed was the huge surprise that occurred. Therefore, I was happy with the general problem and its solution in this b...more

AMAZING!!!!!!!!! CASSIDY AND ZACH R PERFECT 4 EACH OTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CAN'T BELIEVE THEY R ALREADY ALL ENGAGED!

Vogel Frederick's "Mother-Daughter Book Club" series is the very definition of a cozy, warm-fuzzy read. If these had been out when I was ten, I would have absolutely dog-eared them with love.

The series finale is the same feel-good fare, with five now-teenage protagonists who have bonded & become the kind of friends that feel like family through their ups & downs over the years & a large cast of loving, caring family, friends, & neighbors. Everything turns out well in the series,...more

I absolutely love this series. I think it is the best series for girls that I have read so far. I love how each book in the series introduces you to another series or another author to read at the same time you are reading one. I have loved following the characters each year as they get older and their life changes. The series continues in this book after winter break their sophomore year in high school. Megan is celebrating her sweet sixteen and getting ready for her Paris trip with Gigi, Cassi...more

The young members of the Mother Daughter Book Club are turning sixteen and about to start Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. The new year holds lots of excitement for the girls. Megan’s family is the new home to a foreign exchange student from France, who easily gains the affection of Megan’s parents and all the boys in school. However, she does not win the girls over as easily. Megan is also looking forward to a trip to Paris over spring break. Meanwhile, Becca will be going to Missouri as a sort o...more

Everything seems to be going well for the girls this year. Megan finally gets to go to Paris, Emma gets her first book published, Jess has yet another fabulous year with the MadriGals, Cassidy tries to lead her hockey team to victory and Becca's dad finally gets a job. But then Sophie Fairfaix comes to town and ruins all the fun. Sophie is staying with Megan and Megan feels that Sophie is stealing her grandmother from her and Emma's losing her boyfriend Stewart, and all he boys in Concord to Sop...more

As much as I hate to admit it, I'm sad to see this series end. While the entire series is somewhat cliche, idealistic and not quite in touch with reality (I mean there is a internationally recognized fashion designer, published author, member of the hockey team that won nat'ls and one that is acing calculus and dating a 3 star athlete who was also the valedictorian--all in one group of 16 year olds), I did like the innocence of how the whole series came across. While there were catfights and pro...more

Wow, I can't believe this is the last book for the series. It's fun to get to know these book club daughters over the years. Though it's funny how they aren't exactly aware that they can be mean girls too even though other girls are mean to them. They have each other for emotional support. I wished I had that during my adolescent years.

It gets sappy that everyone finds a boyfriend or at least a mutual crush. Cassidy surprises me since she doesn't want to be girly but she has had some girly mome...more

So I really do love this series, and I had no idea this was the last one until I was reading the author's note at the end. I hate that! Like I always say, I would've LOVED these books when I was in elementary/middle school, they're definitely ones I would have reread over and over. I like the characters, even if the things they say and do are unrealistic at times. I think Megan and Jess are my favorites. I liked the story in this a lot and how the author brought back practically all of the peopl...more
