November Book Reviews

Looking for a Thanksgiving weekend read? Here’s three books you should pick up:

Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew Sullivan

After seeing this quite a few times on past linkups I was really excited to get a copy to read. It lived up to my expectations and was really good. It’s the story of a woman who works at a bookstore trying to solve the suicide of a friend. In looking into his life, she has to confront her past. There’s something about characters who have a love for books within a story. You can definitely relate to them. I didn’t see the twist coming but it wasn’t too outrageous. It was a quick read for me. Received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. 

Not Without You by Harriet Evans

I loved the writing in this, in transported me back to old Hollywood at times. It’s two stories woven together, both centered around “it girl” actresses, one in present day and one in the golden age. It tackles some real issues at times but is an engrossing read.

Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale

I would call this a romantic mystery. A woman tries to find out what really happened to hear late fiancé. It’s not too heavy but not too light. It’s not very often that I like all the characters in a book, but almost everyone in this story was lovable and all their decisions were understandable. It didn’t end quite how I thought but I’m currently reading the sequel! Received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
