books are breath


A life without books is a very hollow existence indeed. Nothing else has the power to make me laugh out loud, cry like a baby, or scream in rage like reading a book can. I am open to all genres and am willing to give almost anything a try, even if it's outside my normal scope. My faves are thrillers/suspense but I am also into paranormal, drama, chick lit and YA. This is my first blog, so forgive my ignorance and if you see something I can improve, do tell. :) 

Review: All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner

All Fall Down: A Novel - Jennifer Weiner

What a huge let down. I was so psyched to read this book about a soccer mom dealing with prescription drug addiction. As I have close personal experience on the subject and also having read Jennifer Weiner's other books, my hopes were high. Unfortunately, this read like a pamphlet for opiate addiction with a dash of human action. The main character, Allison, was not someone I like or rooted for. The kid, Eloise, was so annoying I was gritting my teeth. The kid had a few redeeming moments but all said and done, those were the only heartfelt moments in the book. *sigh*.
