It took some time for me to get into it, but when I did, I ended up really liking this book.

There were a ton of subplots going on here, simply because Alice's life was in upheaval from every possible direction--the new job at a smarmy start-up, the m

I loved Timmer's first book, Five Days Left, so I was eager to give this one a shot. And it was...okay, I guess.

My main issue is that I think it was a bit of a cluster. I felt like some of the subplots (Morgan) kept growing more and more unbelievable

This had been on my radar for a few years now, and I'm really not sure why I kept putting it off. I think I was afraid that it would be overly dense, since the subject matter is pretty heavy--the story of a slave girl who may or may not have painted ...more

I'd say a 3.5-star rating would be more accurate. This book is pretty much the perfect definition of a beach read--light, engaging, but nothing that really takes you by surprise.

It did gain some extra points from me for the ending: It didn't tie ever

Kind of a hard one for me to rate, since I've loved T. Greenwood's other books. So I might be going into them holding them to a higher standard, which can be pretty hard to live up to.

I got into this one quick, but I felt like it really wasn't able t

This kind of reminded me of Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin--except in this case, all of the people involved were pretty likeable, so you didn't really want the couple to break up.

I'm not a romance fan at all, but I thought this ended up as a fun,

I definitely would not think a love story between two 16-year-olds would be something I cared about in the least. But surprisingly, I became so invested in it by the end that I may have almost shed a tear.

It's hard to explain why I liked the book so

Seeing how well this got reviewed, I am definitely in the minority here, but man, I did not like this book.

The mom, Faye, was probably one of the most unlikable, annoying characters I've ever read, and I'm pretty sure that wasn't on purpose. She was

No Ordinary Life by Suzanne Redfearn
"More like 1.5

Faye was ditzy and wishy washy and just a simpering idiot 85% of the time. I don't know how many times she said "My kids are first" and then turned around and damn near threw them under the bus for one stupid reason or another.

Definitely the book equivalent of a Kate Hudson romantic comedy, but one of her earlier ones that were still charming, like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.

It was just a super light, enjoyable read--not thinky at all, but it moved quicky, and everyone w
