Sign of a Good Book

I’ve decided that if I’m sad a book is over, then it’s a good book.  Exactly how I felt about the 2 books I’ve read so far this year!
Me Before YouMe Before You by Jojo Moyes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I actually started this book a few times before getting into it. Based on recommendations though I kept at it. And by far it is the best book I have read in a long time! I could not put it down!

Big Little LiesBig Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The foreshadowing in this book really kept me intrigued. And even though the foreshadowing helped me figure out what was going to happen, the characters and plot still pulled me in. Another that I was sad to see end…

An Offer You Can’t Refuse

An Offer You Can't RefuseAn Offer You Can’t Refuse by Jill Mansell
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I didn’t love this book. I read it. I liked the characters. But there were quite a bit of them and their stories while co-mingled where kind of disconnected. I think I was halfway through the book before I realized what the plot was (and that it didn’t really have a main plot). That being said the author arrived at the predictable ending a little too easily.

Heart of the Matter

Heart of the MatterHeart of the Matter by Emily Giffin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love Emily Giffin’s other books. And this one wasn’t horrible. It just wasn’t the same. I did like that it had Dex and Rachel (from Something Borrowed) as some side characters in this book. And it was a page turner. I think my hesitancy in giving this more than 3 stars is that I felt the ending was a bit weak. Or maybe I was just still really tired from my weekend.

Either way, I do know it was my least favorite of her books.
