July was a crazy month for me, so I distracted myself with novels. I read five books this month, and you probably know how they will all end.
The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez. A widow saves a dog. The dog is owned by a famous musician. Bada bing, bada boom, they love each other. This author really wants to write a good book, but just can’t get there. I give this book one out of five stars.
The Upside of Falling Down by Rebekah Crane. An eighteen year old woman is the lone survivor of a plane crash. She is left with amnesia. She runs away from the hospital to find herself, but ends up finding so much more. Predictable, but not bad. I give this book two out of five stars.
Happiness for Beginners by Katherine Center. You just can’t go wrong with a Katherine Center book. In this novel a woman finds herself on a hiking trip. I was cheering for the characters and loved seeing them develop. I give this book three out of five stars.
Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane. Georgina is fired from her horrible waitressing job. She gets a job at a pub. The pub is owned by her high school love. Guess what happens. This is a fun read, with the exception of a sexual assault. I give this book two out of five stars.
Real Men Knit by Kwana Jackson. This book is a fun story about trying to save a yarn shop. I really liked this book, but it ended abruptly. It needs an epilogue or a few more chapters to finish it off. I give the book two out of five stars.
