When your husband gets a library card from the educational institution he is working for ... and you beg for the card number so you can bolster your Overdrive book choices... you might be a book hoarder. 😜

I liked Nick‘s touchy family dynamics, especially because Mallery referenced Fool‘s Gold characters I was familiar with.

Love. This is the second Vrabel book that I've had to go back and reread the last chapter because it's so gucci. Review to come on www.randombookmuses.com and Goodreads. :)

A smart, fun, contemporary, relatable book about two very different sisters — the farmer and the fashionista. https://randombookmuses.com/2017/08/04/review-quick-and-dirty-3-secrets-of-the-t...

The Thing About Love | Julie James

The thing about THE THING ABOUT LOVE is that it's as amazing as I expected it to be. Tension, tenderness, witty banter, and a HEA. https://randombookmuses.com/2017/05/06/review-the-thing-about-love-by-julie-jame...

Nice character development of these three sisters who start out not knowing each other very well - but grow together (and grow themselves). Fun niece, handsome contractor, history-infused theatre. Good read! https://randombookmuses.com/2017/04/17/review-the-last-chance-matinee-by-mariah-...

Loving this contemporary tale of sisters digging into their family's past. Saga-ish. Mystery-ish. Wonderful. And there might be a love story but I'm halfway through and haven't spied a date yet. ❤

Faithful: A Novel | Alice Hoffman
post image

Well written so far... already so sad... hoping for some Hope and Joy...

Angela_AVT Good read. Nice YA with some realistic grit, excellent rendering of teenage emotion/self centeredness without knowing it (like "no one understands me"), and a wonderful message of hope - look for a savior... and be one to someone else. 3y

This is how you know we muses (and Pegasus) post honest, unbiased reviews, folks:

There I was reading this lovely story ... impressed with the writing and basking in extravagant descriptions of Parisian food, shopping, and architecture. I thought, “Wow, this book reminds me of Anita Hughes‘ novels. Everything is so luxurious and magical ...

A friend just told me she bought this for her teenager - my teenager refuses to read anything I pick out. But I loved the Canterbury Tales AND the Breakfast Club... has anyone read this? Real reviews please... Amazon is full of baloney. Here's the link to the book. http://amzn.to/2dCmkwo

minkyb @Angela_AVT check out the article in the Huffington Post called 5 YA Book Trends for 2017 dated 11/21 by Lisa Parkin. This is mentioned under Rarely Retold Stories. 3y

I'm still in the beginning chapters - makings of a love story, some drunkenness, and -- CRINGE -- chapters changing tenses. Someone tell me this book is going to pull me in soon!
