I have gotten really behind on reviewing books. I am going to do some shorter reviews to get caught up.
Fireworks Over Toccoa
I won this book from a giveaway quite a while ago. It was very interesting to learn about how fireworks are made. It reminded me quite a bit of The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. It was good, but not great. Overall, a nice, light, and short read. Would be perfect for after a heavier book.
The Virgin's Lover (Boleyn)
A typical Philippa Gregory book. This one was a little too heavy on the romance and not enough on the history. Good, but not as good as some of her others, especially The Other Boleyn Girl.
The Murderer's Daughters
I won this from a giveaway. The cover is not very appealing for me, and it makes it look cheap and cheesy. A very good book about a man who kills his wife and how his daughters deal with it. Very, very good. If I had to choose one out of these four, I would choose this one to recommend.
The story of a woman who escaped a polygamist cult. I am interested in cults, particularly the polygamist one. The writing was not the best, but the story is worth reading. It gives some history of the cult and insight into what they believe. She has a sequel out that I will definitely read, once it comes out in paperback or if I can find it on sale like I did this one.
