I realized sometime during the month that I never posted the books I was planning to read.
Probably because I didn’t know what books I was going to read!
I hopped on Amazon and downloaded a couple of new ones to my Kindle. What I read:
Liane wrote a few other books that I love: What Alice Forgot, Big Little Lies & The Husband’s Secret. I had a hunch that I’d love Three Wishes just as much!
From the Amazon description:
“Lyn, Cat, and Gemma Kettle, beautiful thirty-three-year-old triplets, seem to attract attention everywhere they go. Together, laughter, drama, and mayhem seem to follow them. But apart, each is dealing with her own share of ups and downs. Lyn has organized her life into one big checklist, Cat has just learned a startling secret about her marriage, and Gemma, who bolts every time a relationship hits the six-month mark, holds out hope for lasting love. In this wise, witty, and hilarious novel, we follow the Kettle sisters through their tumultuous thirty-third year as they deal with sibling rivalry and secrets, revelations and relationships, unfaithful husbands and unthinkable decisions, and the fabulous, frustrating life of forever being part of a trio.”
The main plot of the story: one of the sister’s husbands has an affair and the story gets tangled up between the mistress and the flaky sister’s new boyfriend…who happens to be said mistress’ brother. Makes for cheery family gatherings, no?
It was a good book but I didn’t love it as much as the previous three books of Liane’s I’ve read. Check it out for yourself HERE.
I stumbled upon this book while browsing around Amazon. See, I signed up for the free 30 day trial of Kindle Unlimited. What’s that? Well, Amazon allows you to download any number of a preselected grouping of books (there are a LOT OF BOOKS ya’ll)- for free- during your 30 day trial. After that, the service is $9.99 a month. It’s a pretty great deal if you read a lot (or even a slight amount as a single new release book is over $10). Check it out HERE.
Y’all, I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. I read it in one sitting! The main character, Sugar, was so developed and REAL. I felt her pain and even her desire to escape reality through food. Most people have a vice, hers was definitely sugar. Oh how I can relate!
From the Amazon description:
“I’m the fat Puerto Rican–Polish girl who doesn’t feel like she belongs in her skin, or anywhere else for that matter. I’ve always been too much and yet not enough.
Sugar Legowski-Gracia wasn’t always fat, but fat is what she is now at age seventeen. Not as fat as her mama, who is so big she hasn’t gotten out of bed in months. Not as heavy as her brother, Skunk, who has more meanness in him than fat, which is saying something. But she’s large enough to be the object of ridicule wherever she is: at the grocery store, walking down the street, at school. Sugar’s life is dictated by taking care of Mama in their run-down home—cooking, shopping, and, well, eating. A lot of eating, which Sugar hates as much as she loves.
When Sugar meets Even (not Evan—his nearly illiterate father misspelled his name on the birth certificate), she has the new experience of someone seeing her and not her body. As their unlikely friendship builds, Sugar allows herself to think about the future for the first time, a future not weighed down by her body or her mother.
Soon Sugar will have to decide whether to become the girl that Even helps her see within herself or to sink into the darkness of the skin-deep role her family and her life have created for her.”
If you only read one book this year, make it this one! Find it HERE.
