Writing about Your Neighbors for Profit…

Miss Buncle's Book

Miss Buncle’s Book

By: D.E. Stevenson

Is maybe not the best idea!

In need of money Barbara Buncle has written a book about the residents of her small English village. While she does it under a pen name and disguises everyone it turns out not so well and the residents are a bit quicker on the uptake than she might have given them credit for.

Which causes chaos in this quaint English village.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Taylor Jenkins Reid

Grade: A

So I had heard nothing but good things about this book. Recently one reviewer I follow said it was one of her all time favorites so I finally, finally decided to just sit and read it and I’m so glad I did. This one lived up to the hype and it’s definitely one of my top reads of the year.

I Prefer the Ruin

Love and Ruin

By: Paula McLain

Grade: B+

*I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Love and Ruin is the story of Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gelhorn’s tumultuous meeting, romance and eventual marriage. Paula McLain wrote Circling the Sun¬†which was one of my favorite books a few years ago and remains so. Whereas I definitely have more mixed feelings about this book but mainly I preferred the ruin part.
