March ReadSaturday, March 28, 2015
Finally, after 11 days of no internet connection, I'm back to blogging and it feels so good! While offline, I'm able to read a lot. Mojo is back.
Maid for the Billionaire by Ruth Cardello (Legacy Collection #1)-The plot is very common. A rich guy falls in love with a normal woman. I'm a sucker for this kind of plot, but the timeline of events in this book is over-the-top and somewhat unbelievable. Can a person in real life declare undying love after 7 days? I don't think so. But despite that, I can say that I really enjoyed reading it.
For Love or Legacy by Ruth Cardello (Legacy Collection #2)-The second book of this series for me was much better. The chemistry between the characters is awesome and their love story had me hooked from start to finish. I love it.
The Hiltons: A Family Dynasty by J. Randy Taraborrelli-This is a well-researched, well-written book that chronicles the life of Conrad Hilton. It was a really good read for me. An entertaining read about the Hilton family.
How to Date a Nerd (How To #1) by Cassie Mae-This was such a great book. I read it in one sitting. I couldn't get enough of it. I'm not picky when it comes to books, but I love stories like this one. What a refreshing read!
Strange Bedpersons by Jennifer Crusie-I love this book but if it's in real life, One of the main characters are without a doubt someone whom I will never be associated with. Tess was egotistical, self-righteous and controlling. She was kind of a bitch. She had to argue and lecture about everything. It got tiring after a while. She took everything to the extreme. This isn't a bad book. It's quick and witty and cute, BUT I'm warning you about Tess. She's quite annoying to read.
My Story by Marilyn Monroe, Ben Hecht, Joshua Green- I've never been a Marilyn fanatic, but I was curious about this book because I wanted to hear her story in her own words. A book that looks like a 'tell all', but I am very aware that she is definitely not telling everything because I felt that something significant was missing. It was a quick read for me and made me sad in the end because, to be honest, I didn't learn anything.
Love, Life and Linguine by Melissa Jacobs-Quick and light read. A little predictable, but a nice twist at the end.
Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives by Josie Brown-I thoroughly enjoyed this novel! You can easily relate to the characters. Some of the characters reminded me of people I actually know. This book mimics real life for many people.
Judging a Book by Its Lover: A Field Guide to the Hearts and Minds of Readers Everywhere by Lauren Leto- Not a book for readers but a book for people who want to pretend to be readers. Full of tips for pretending to have read well-known books to impress others, which is ridiculous. Seriously? Why bother to pretend to be someone you are not? What is the problem with admitting that you don’t have the time or the interest to read a certain book? I’m hugely disappointed with this book, this is a book for phonies.
To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han-This was so much more than what I'd expected. This was such a great book.
