O.M.G.: What are you waiting for? Go out and buy this book now! Superb: It's wonderful, but you can wait for a coupon. Give it a try: It's good, but I would wait for paperback. Meh: It will be in the library eventually. Naahhhhhhhhh!!!: Do I really need to explain?
It's been a while since I've done this. It's Monday, what's on the cover? Every season of Hoarders I say I'm not going to watch but I do anyway. Every season they find a new way to gross me out. So a book about an "organizer" trying to help a hoarder was right up my alley. In Objects of My Affection by Jill Smolinski Lucy Bloom is trying to jumpstart her career as an organizer. But her first real client is a handful. So far reading it is right out of an episode of Hoarders, except we get to see the personal side of the organizer. The cover of the book is kind of cute. If only the clean up were as simple as the cover indicates!!
An Unquenchable Thirst by Mary Johnson chronicles her 20 years as a nun with the Missionaries of Charity. I'm not sure what the petals on the cover mean yet, but so far I like the book. I could NEVER be a nun. The amount of restrictions she goes through in this book would break me.
I've been stuck in a rut and I decided I needed a creative outlet. This is it! I've been a self-professed bookaholic since age five, and one day I'm going to get my dream job in book publishing! Follow me on Twitter at bookangel224!!
I love, love to read. I accept literary fiction, chick lit, memoirs, mysteries, historical fiction and contemporary YA books for review. If you think your book is for me, I will make an exception for other genres. At this time, I am accepting a limited amount of e-books. If I can't get into your book after 60-70 pages, I will not review it. Books are read in the order they are received. Reviews will be posted within 6-8 weeks upon receiving the book. Reviews of books not yet published will be posted closer to the publication date. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Opportunities for guest posts, interviews and giveaways can also be arranged.
