It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

In the last few weeks I read two books. 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas' and 'In Her Shoes' by Jennifer Weiner.

I never got around to reviewing or writing about 'In Her Shoes' before today. It's my first time participating in this meme so I will do my best from what I can remember . I also just joined goodreads and from there you can read my reviews.

In Her ShoesIn Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This story is about two sisters , Maggie and Rose, who lost their mother when they were young and grew up with a cantankerous wicked stepmother . Their father broke all ties toward their mothers side of the family after her car accident but eventually the girls are reunited with their grandmother in the course of the book . It was supposed to be a tearjerker which is why I thought to read it , but it didn't affect me that way .I liked following Maggie , the younger of the two who was more of a rebel and problematic for everyone. I guess I could relate to her easier, as she took us on her quest(s) to find her dream job; from acting to dog watching to clothes designer . It was easy enough to read and for the most part it grabbed my attention. Rose was the older one who had a good head on her shoulder and more educated .

  1. Well done getting through to my blog, just had my google account disabled for no reason! Nightmare but got it back. I enjoyed the film of In Her Shoes but not read the book.

  2. I loved Tales from Margaritaville a few years ago. I hope "Salty" is good!
