One Line Reviews

Now that I’m not officially reviewing anywhere, I feel like starting a new category. Here’s what I’ve been reading for the past few weeks.

Novels

The Family Man, Elinor Lipman. Fabulous story full of heart and sass.

An American Wife, Curtis Sittenfeld. Why I like Laura Bush. 

The Fixer Upper, Mary Kay Andrews. A domestic disaster full of humor.

Ask Again Later, Jill A. Davis. Unconventionally but entertainingly told.

True Love & Other Disasters, Rachel Gibson. (romance) For me it’s not about the hockey playing hero but Gibson’s storytelling skills.

Finger Lickin’ Fifteen, Janet Evanovich. (comic “mystery”) Doubt I’ll ever grow weary of Stephanie’s cars blowing up or her love triangle with Ranger and Morelli.

Other Fiction

Talk of the Ton, Eloisa James et al. (historical romance novellas) Love my Regencies.

My Father’s Tears, John Updike. (short stories) Imbued with wisdom–and the sadness of saying good-bye.

Non-fiction

Never Say Diet Again, Chantel Hobbs. Inspiring and tiring.

The End of Overeating, David A. Kessler, M.D. Lucid story of how big business hijacked the American menu and how we can take it back, one meal at a time.

And my friend Josie recommended The Writing Class by Jincy Willet, so that’s next.
