Dangled Carat Review

I don't usually read memoirs but since this book read like a true chick lit novel, I found myself truly enjoying this book. I enjoyed hearing about Hilary's personal story and all the turns it took! I was impressed how candid she was in sharing a very personal story. She was very honest and at times the tale was humorous though I was frustrated at times with Marc and I could definitely relate! I read this book in record time and feel like it is a must read for any young woman!

Hilary Grossman dated a guy so commitment-phobic that she was able to write a book about their relationship.  She has an unhealthy addiction to denim and shoes.  She loves to find humor in every day life.  And she likens life to a game of dodgeball - she tries to keep many balls in the air before they smack her in the face. When she isn't writing or blogging she is the CFO of a beverage alcohol importer.  She lives on Long Island.

Pie Girls Review

Pie Girls was the second book I have read by Lauren Clark and I have to say that I was delighted by the Southern charm that is her signature style. Searcy Roberts was an interesting character who I came to like a lot though I found it somewhat unbelievable that she changed personality wise as quickly as she did. However, I am not going to judge as one never knows what adversity can do to a person.
The characters grew on me and I found myself caring about them as the book progressed. I was definitely rooting for Searcy and for her success! I did find some of the book farfetched or perhaps just not plausible though I didn’t find that it took away from the overall enjoyment of this book.
Lauren always writes interesting stories and I am looking forward to reading more of her work. And apparently I won’t have to wait as I have two books to catch up on!
