Book Review – The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman
Genre: Chick Lit

Nina Hill lives by herself with her cat and works in a local bookshop. She loves order and routine and is not spontaneous at all and she likes that. One day, she is notified that her father, who she never knew existed, has passed away and she’s been named in his will. She also finds out that she has brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews. Not everyone is happy to have her as the newest member of their family, however. On top of discovering her new found family she’s finding that she’s falling for someone she didn’t plan on. Did I mention that she also suffers from anxiety when things get to be too much for her?

This was such a great read and there are definitely aspects to Nina’s life that I could relate to. Highly recommend this book! I rated this book 5/5 Stars.

Book Review – Class Mom

Class Mom by Laurie Gelman
Genre: Chick Lit

Jen Dixon is not your typical mom with a child in Kindergarten. She’s in her 40’s and has 2 daughters who are both in college. Both of her daughters’ fathers were musicians and she wasn’t married to either of them. She ends up marrying Ron and they have a son, Max.

Jen is asked to be the class parent for Max’s kindergarten class and that’s where the fun begins.

This book is hysterically funny. It starts that way from the very beginning of the book and stays that way until the end.

I’m not a fast reader. It will typically take me a week to finish a book, but I read this book in 3 days!! A perfect read to take with you on vacation or if you are just looking for a comical quick read. I will definitely be reading the sequel to this book.

This book got a 4 star rating from me.
