Book Review - "Second Chance" by Jane Green (#22 - 2016)

Second Chance by Jane Green

Another Jane Green novel, just love her books so much.  That being said, this is probably my least favorite of her novels (that I've read).  It's not bad, it was just super hard to get into.  It centers on friends, Tom, Olivia, Holly, Saffron and Paul, from school who gather twenty years later when tragedy strikes.  They come together, get to know each other again and secrets come out.  They are forced to examine their life choices and they make changes that start them on new, unexpected paths.  The first third of the book is really slow and it was hard sorting all the characters out, it does pick up and then was a quick read after that, but I just didn't feel any fondness for any of the characters.  It's a good beach/vacation read.  But I would pick up one of her other books before this one.  

Other Jane Green reviews:
Family Pictures - maybe my favorite
Jemima J - A fluffy, chick-lit beach read.  Nothing deep here.  It's about a girl who is 100 lbs overweight and her transformation inside and out after deciding to drop the pounds.  Very predictable.  However sometimes you just need a book like this, it's like a bag of Doritos, sometimes they just hit the spot.

Book Review - "Confessions of a Crispy Mom" by Laura Frances (#21 - 2016)

Disclosure: I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher for review. I only accept copies of books for review that look like something I would normally buy or check out at library.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Confessions of a Crispy Mom by Laura Frances

I was eager to get my hands on this book, the author is a dear friend, former boss and mentor.  It's her first book!  She has a sharp wit and the ability to get really "real" about a lot of things.  I always appreciate that and her ability to just make you better (your work, your life, etc).  That being said, she would be mad if I didn't give an honest review, so that's what I will do.  The main character, Delia is each of us, our struggles, our insecurities, just being overwhelmed on a daily basis as moms. The ultimate question being how can we make the most of the years we have with our children? Through some letters left to her by her late Mother, Delia discovers how to answer that question. It's a touching, raw and heartwarming read. I will admit sometimes I teared up because Delia's "confessions" hit very close to home (though unlike Delia, I wouldn't get upset if my husband hired a person to clean house every once in a while - lol!). It's a quick read that packs a big punch. Pick this one up, especially if you have small children!
