Book Review – The Pricesses of Iowa by M. Molly Backes

The Princesses of IowaThe Princesses of Iowa by M. Molly Backes

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I really wanted to like this book. Being born in the Midwest and currently living in Iowa – I really, really wanted to like this book.

But in the end, I can’t give it more than two stars. I couldn’t handle the main character – let’s be honest – I couldn’t stand any of the characters. They were completely unlikable. I didn’t understand or sympathize with any of them.

The only reason I’m giving it two stars is because I did enjoy the authors writing.

Book Review – Mother, Mother by Koren Zalickas

Mother, MotherMother, Mother by Koren Zailckas

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A story about a narcissist mother and an absentee father that leaves your mind reeling. The psychological aspect of this story leaves you questioning the sanity of the world around you.

It did get a little lengthy and there was some omission of action (most of the story is in summary of things that happened). But I enjoyed it and was very creeped out by it.

Love Letters to the DeadLove Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book – I couldn’t put it down. It was beautifully written; the letters Laurel wrote made the story come alive. While there is no happily ever after – I was okay with the ending. The story was heartbreaking and full of anguish, it’s going to leave you melancholic for some time after finishing but in a way that’s real.
