Max Aww, too bad this wasn't the one for you. But honesty is important! And you gave good arguments! :-)

Thank you Max. I think this hit me on a very personal level that didn't allow me to see things any other way. These kinds of experiences do make me evaluate and think about the way I relate to life and that is a good thing.

Thank you Meredith...wonderful that the world is full of all different kinds of books. 💖


Jaline - (on partial hiatus) Wonderful review, Marilyn! Sometimes we just don't connect with a certain book or presentation, and you did a great job of sharing why this didn't work for you. Thank you!

Jayme Always appreciate an honest review!!


Kaleidoscope Eyes I love this author and her blog, but she is definitely a geared towards a certain taste. She is totally my jam.

I see she has a very high rating so she is very well liked, including by so many of my friends. I'm surprised I had a hard time handling the book but I think that's me and not the book. Down the line I may look at her work again. 💜

JV (semi-hiatus) I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing depression too, Marilyn. I've been fighting it for almost a year now. I've read Lawson's first memoir and I wasn't stunned, in fact, I was bored. I don't know if I'll find this funny though, crossing my fingers! Hope your next book is awesome! 🤗


message 19: by Karina (new)

Karina Great Honest review Marylin! Books can't have the same effect on everyone! And best of luck to you on your depression. Don't let the darkness beat out the light. Hope you read something better.


SheAintGotNoShoes A lot of books that I have read over the past few years are ones that I call 'polarizing' as they often have a ton of reviews that people either really really loved or really really really hated !

I am always curious which side I will land on and at the end of the book I often wonder how the opposing side reached their conclusion ( Baby Teeth springs to mind - a book with tons of 5 star and 1 star reviews )

There may be a time when I could handle the book better and possibly reading it now was a good chance to try to see things differently over time. BTW, we can always remember that we aren't alone and that others do care about us. Look forward to your review when you read the book. Thanks for your post JV.

Thank you Karina. My husband and exercise and pets all help me deal with my depression and I won't let it beat me. I'm always looking for the light. 🌼

I think this is so interesting, the far apart reviews on books. I love reading reviews and often will seek out the negative reviews first because I can learn much from them. I love reading review, especially when I book really affected someone, whether they liked it or now. 💖

Diana I also have a harder time reviewing a book that I didn’t rate very high. I’m happy you have your husband, exercise and pets! 💙

Thank you Diana. 💖 It's funny how hard non favorable reviews are to write.
