Review: The Family Next Door by Sally Hepworth

by Susan Roberts

The Family Next Door, an excellent new book by Sally Hepworth, is about secrets, both those that we keep from our friends and neighbors but more importantly the secrets that we keep within our families. The author does an amazing job of giving us a great plot with people that we all feel like we know in our day to day lives.

New Virtual Networking Event for Book Bloggers

by Donna Huber

I know many people were disappointed to learn that there would not be an Armchair Book Expo event this year. It has been a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and catch up with old friends. It also gave bloggers an opportunity to explore different topics and help each other out. It is the only blogging event I have done every year since I started Girl Who Reads. Because I found the event beneficial, I've decided to organize a similar, but smaller, event for this year.

When you have to wait two years for a new John Hart book, you figure that it better be good. And when you find out that the main character is the grown-up version of one of John Hart's fantastic earlier book, you know that it's going to be good. And when you read it and find out that it's one of the best books you've ever read, then the wait was worth it.

Review: The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

by Susan Roberts
Alaska (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
"In Alaska you can make one mistake. One. The second one will kill you."

Before I read The Great Alone I didn't know much about Alaska - about the people who went there to live a different life or about the beauty of the state. Kristin Hannah does a wonderful job giving the reader a beautiful story along with wonderful descriptions of Alaska. I must admit that I felt cold sitting in my warm house when I read her descriptions of the blowing snow and the cold temperatures. This is a wonderful novel about love and family - both your family by blood and those you collect along the way.
