This book was a fun, quick read in spite of its length. However, it was a tad predictable and formulaic. I ket reading because I liked the lead character and her spunky Southern family, but honestly, there were no surprises here.

I enjoyed this book, for the most part. It was an engaging read and I polished it off in under two days. Some of the characters were very well-drawn. Others were not. Youngest son Patrick was pretty much a cardboard stand-in, and there were some seco ...more

Born with Teeth by Kate Mulgrew

This book was just okay. Parts of it were very interesting---mostly the parts about her younger sister, and her daughter. But other parts of it were very pretentious, and still other parts rambling and dull. This was not a memorable read for me. Just ...more

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

This book had its good moments, but I found there was too much politics in it for me, and that is the least interesting part of world-building. Far too much time was spent on President Snow and Coin, the potential president. I thought the decisions m ...more

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

I liked this book better than the first one. I still don't think Collins is the best writer in the world, but the story kept me reading and I liked that the actual games which make up the core plot were a little higher-stakes this time. Katniss, the ...more

I finally read this series after finding it on Kindle Unlimited. It was okay. I liked the storyline and it was enough to keep me reading, but I found the writing style a little flat and clunky. Not the best literature, but a diverting couple hours of ...more

Minimalist Monday - Zen Home by Lindsay S Nixon

This book was basic, but had some good tips. I especially liked her idea about taking everything out of the bathroom in a big box, and bringing items back (and finding a place for them!) as you use them. I am not a huge clutter person, but our home i ...more

So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson

This was a fantastic and very thought-provoking book! Ronson did a great job bringing historical research into a modern context, and humanizing the diverse subjects he profiled. I just wish he had waited to write this book until after Monica Lewinsky ...more

This was a quick read for me---finished it in just over a day. I found I really enjoyed most of it, but the ending fell a little flat for me. I wanted more clues, more suspense. I wanted Devin to become a bit more three-dimensional than he seemed to. ...more
