Books for Breakfast #16

Book Reviews

For a nice balanced breakfast, the reads this time were:
The Best Revenge
Tell the Wolves I’m Home

This was another book that I picked up at the library sale that I mentioned in the last books for breakfast. This is another murder mystery as well. (I’m sure it’s quite obvious by now how much I like murder mystery novels!) Anyways, I liked this one more than The Organ Grinder. There are more characters directly involved to the mystery, yet you aren’t quite sure HOW they are really involved. That’s the kind of story I like to read! Mysteries are all about surprises that you don’t see coming! 

This book certainly had the mystery feel to it that I normally like. There were twists that I wasn’t really expecting, though it got a bit complicated at times. I can’t say I really liked the ending, but as it stands, it was still a decent read. Some action, mystery, decent characters, twists, and the like.

Oh my, this book tugged on the heart strings. When I first saw it on the best sellers table I ignored it, but I kept coming back to it over and over again until I finally decided to read it. I should have read it sooner!! It was a great story! It has some forbidden love, in a sense, and it shows a lot of the complexities in families. I didn’t cry, but I’m sure I know some people who would have cried over it. Still, while it was depressing and heart wrenching, it was still had its happy moments. It was a great read! I blew through it in just one day!! I couldn’t put it down!

The book is really, when you get right down to it, about grieving for loved ones and how to share your feelings. Also, how to reconcile with people that have hurt you and that you’ve hurt as well. Man, it was just a wonderful book!! 
I am blowing through books this month! I can’t stop!!!
Next on the menu is: Insurgent & Choke
