Slacker; a person who avoids work or effort. Or Book Blogging Momma aka Heather (me). Being a blogger isn’t always as glamorous as it seems and sometimes I slack so hard. This time I slacked and haven’t reviewed four titles. Below I am going to do a very fast review for LOVE WARRIOR, LOVE RECONSIDERED, PERFECTLY UNDONE and CONSTANT CRAVING. I am doing a multi-review post because these books weren’t some of my favorites but I felt compelled to tell you about them anyways.
Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle
This title was sent to me by Booksparks as part of their #FRC2017. I want to first say that I am not a huge fan of memoirs. I’ve only ever read one memoir that I truly enjoyed, which is FINDING MY BADASS SELF by Sherry Stanfa Stanley. In Love Warrior, Glennon writes of her life struggles but rarely of her good times. Throughout the whole book I thought, “Man, she is SOO whiny.” Needless to say this book was 2 stars for me and I didn’t take anything away from this book that was useful.
Love Reconsidered by Phyllis J. Piano
This title was also sent by Booksparks as part of #FRC2017. I felt LOVE RECONSIDERED had great potentials but again I was let down. Throughout the book I felt it could possibly be two books in one novel, one book needed to be chosen. With that being said I thought the story should have been centered around Aleen and Ted leaving out Sunny & Stu’s relationship, it would have made for a better novel. Also, a lot of thoughts from the characters were mirrored and I felt they could have been different to make for a more interesting story. In my opinion, this novel was a 2 stars for me.
Perfectly Undone by Jamie Raintree
This novel held my attention better than the two above and for that I’m grateful. The only downfall to this story was I felt Dylan held on to the death of her sister, Abby, for too long. The storyline of this novel was good and I would recommend this novel to a friend. I am happy to be able to give this novel a 4 star rating.
Constant Craving by Tamara Lush
When signing up for this #popupblogtour with Booksparks this novel was compared to “Fifty Shaded of Grey”, and of course I had to sign up. While I didn’t think it was anything like FSOG this novel still left me craving more. Tamara Lush is a fabulous author and I’m happy to have had the chance to chat with her from time to time. I loved the storyline of Justine and Rafael with all of their many ups and downs. It’s a super sexy read and you’ll find yourself making time for this novel. I’m happy to give this novel 5 stars!
Yay so I just realized I should basically label this as a BOOKSPARKS blog because all of these books came from them. I really enjoy working with Booksparks and look forward to sharing more from them soon. Hope you loves have a great Thanksgiving and cozy up with a book instead of watching football.
