The Most Likely Club is a blast from the past and a lesson in not living in your past at the same time. Four friends are faced with their 25-year high school reunion and find that they haven’t all lived up to their “Most Likely to” superlatives. They feel it’s time to take their lives to the places they thought they would be 25 years ago and make a pact to step it up.
So, I liked this story, and I really connected with these women. I really enjoyed all the 90’s references. I mean I am a 90’s kid, so all the references really resonated with me! I enjoyed the plans that they put in place, and the actions they took to get where they wanted to be. I did find that there were a few too many things going on to really keep me invested enough to make this a 4-star story though.
Miles and the Soldier is the second book in The Acre Series. This one starts off right after the end of the first book, so I would recommend reading book 1, Juno and the Lady before starting this one.
I have really come to enjoy this fantasy series! I’ve read book 1 as well as two novellas in the series, and what I am absolutely loving is the characters! I was so happy to have so many of the characters from book 1 being incorporated into the second book! In addition to having these old friends back in the story, there are also a great cast of new characters that are added, and I loved them to!
Petra and the Sewer Rats is the second novella in the Juno and the Lady series. Even though this one is labeled as 1.2, you could pick this up at any point while reading the series.
I loved that this story was all about a woman’s goal to help those who weren’t getting the help they needed! Petra lives a pretty cushy life, but when she discovers a world of people that do not live the way she does, she knows she has to do something!
Valen and the Beasts is a novella in the Juno and the Lady series. This can pretty much be read at any point in the series. It’s labeled as 1.1, but I don’t think you have to read it right after book 1 if you don’t want to.
This was a fun, exciting, and quick addition to this series. I really enjoyed that we get to meet new characters and also explore new areas of this fantasy world. I liked this story and plot just as much as book 1, and I would definitely recommend reading it at some point during your reading of this fantastic series!
This was such a fun and exciting story! I loved the animated characters with distinct personalities, and I enjoyed how their long working relationship has made them connected in a special way.
Billie, Helen, Natalie, and Mary Ann are assassins who have been working together for so many years, and now it’s time for their retirement! YAY!… except it seems that this all-expense paid cruise was a set-up and now they are the targets!
This is a really fun start to a young adult fantasy series! Juno and the Lady is the first book in the Acre Series, and I am looking forward to continuing with the next book!
As this is a fantasy novel, there is a great world to build, and a magical system to put in place. I thought the author did a good job of getting the details into the story without making it feel like a laundry list to get through. At times I thought that it may have gone a little too fast, but the pacing smoothed out a bit after the first few chapters.
This was a fantastic crime and investigative thriller! I enjoyed the mystery and found the characters to be interesting and easy to invest in!
Mari Alvarez lost her mother years ago to an unsolved murder. Now Mari is an investigative reporter and has found another murder that resembles her mother’s death. When the murders continue, Mari knows she has to dig into what is happening to save future victims and maybe herself.
This was such a fun historical mystery! I love that this features characters from Jane Austin’s novels reimagined as spies!
This is the third book in The Secret Life of Mary Bennet series, but it can absolutely be read as a standalone. I loved the mix of mystery and romance and all the relationships between the characters. I really enjoyed Mary as a spy. I thought she was quite fun!
What an amazingly moving and impactful story! This book is hard-hitting, and it really presses the reader the live through the journey with the characters! This will make a great book club read and will create great discussion dialogue!
Two women with a lifelong friendship find themselves drifting apart at times and being ripped apart at others. The importance and difficulty of motherhood for the two of them begin to strain their relationship.
This was such a great children’s story about nature and littering and the impact on our seas!
This is a fictional story about Violet as she finds litter in the water and wants to find out how she can help make things better. I really appreciated the mix of fictionalized story and non-fiction information. It made for great conversation starters as I read this with my kiddos! There were lots of great questions as the story progressed!
I absolutely love dystopian stories, and this one did not let me down! There is fantastic world-building, compelling characters, and an interesting plot!
This dystopian world has highly advanced technology, a bit of magic, and oppressed people. The story follows Fenlee Harper, a teen trying to help her family move up in the world. I don’t want to give away everything, but as the story progresses, there are so many surprising reveals, I couldn’t stop reading!
They put the tiny, red-faced bundle into her arms, and time stopped. She gazed at that puckered little face and whispered, Welcome to the world, baby girl. Little did she know that within weeks, she would become a single mother—not exactly what she had imagined for her daughters and herself, but exactly what needed to happen. This is the story of a single mother, but it’s more than that. Sometimes funny, sometimes reflective, it’s also your story—a story of that peculiar, trying, and wonderful state of motherhood.
In Superwoman: A Funny and Reflective Look at Single Motherhood, popular humor blogger Mona Andrei brings you her sage and snickery insights on being a single mom, with all its gore and glory. Through a series of interviews, you’ll also get a voyeuristic peek into the lives of other single mothers—and don’t we all love that feeling of Thank goodness, I’m not the only one! We’re all superwomen here.
