It’s seriously so hard to believe a month has gone by and it’s time for another book review! This week is super exciting because it starts my twice weekly posts! Be on the look out for my first post about the Disney College Program! I’ve been going back and forth between continuing to do these, but for now, I’m going to continue 🙂 I had mentioned last month how many books I would be able to read this month, but I was just too darn busy!
The Devil Wears Prada
I primarily read this book while on my cruise at the beginning of the month. It was just what I needed for a relaxing vacation read. It was light and had me turning pages non-stop! I’ve never seen the movie so I thought it would be perfect to read the book first. It follows the main character, Andrea, during her year of working for Miranda Priestly, a fashion icon. Andrea wants nothing to do with the fashion world, but realizes if she can endure a year of working for Miranda she would have the opportunity to work anywhere she wants and boy what a year it was. I would definitely recommend this book as a light summer read that will have you wanting to know what happens next.
Return to Sender
The next book I read was Return to Sender by Fern Michaels. My grandma gave me this book to read and while upon first look it seemed to be a sappy romance book, it turned out it was not. It started off with a mom taking her son to college and seeing his father for the first time in years. Believing he choose to ignore the fact he had a son all these years she decides to make him pay. It makes for an interesting read for the first 3/4 of the book, but the end seemed to wrap up the story line without much closure. There was also a story line added in at the last minute that I did not feel was necessary. I enjoyed the book but wouldn’t go raving about it to all of my friends.
Save the Date
As you may know, I’m mildly obsessed with weddings so when I saw the word wedding, I knew Save the Date was a book I had to read. This book ended up being a bit of a bust. I can’t exactly put my finger on it, but there was just something about it I didn’t love. There almost seemed to be too much going on. I would just start getting into the book and then something new would be introduced I just wasn’t that into.
What Alice Forgot
Finally, I read What Alice Forgot. If you haven’t read this book yet, you need to! Alice falls off her bike at the gym and basically forgets the last several years of her life. In that time, she has totally changed. She can’t remember her kids, what happened with her husband, anything. Now she must figure out how to get her old life back and how she managed to make so many people unhappy. It’s interesting to see how much a person can change, even if it’s just in a book.
