Emerson, Georgia, and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults. For Marley, it's coming to terms with the survivor's guilt she's carried around since her twin sister's death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it's learning to stop trying to live up to her mother's and brother's ridiculous standards and learning to accept love.

It felt a bit slow at first but I just love the way the author linked all of the characters and the depth she gave them. It was funny, deep, and a great read. Totally recommend it. It’s a reminder of the importance of healing and truth in our relationships and so much more!

From behind the wheel of her car, Tess Kincaid glimpses a woman walking down a Madison, Wisconsin, street. They've never met, but Tess sees the same features every time she looks in the mirror. Tess introduces herself and discovers that she and her doppelganger, Mimi, have more than appearance in common. They even share the same birthday. Mimi - confident and outgoing where Tess is understated and shy - is convinced they're twins, separated shortly after birth. When a body is discovered in a local marsh, Tess is entangled in a search for the truth....

As a lifelong student of Scripture, Kathie Lee Gifford has always desired a deeper understanding of God's Word and a deeper knowledge of God Himself. But it wasn't until she began studying the biblical texts in their original Hebrew and Greek - along with actually hiking the ancient paths of Israel - that she found the fulfillment of those desires. As you journey through The Rock, The Road, and The Rabbi, you'll also find additional content from Messianic Rabbi Jason Sobel throughout the book.

The narrator was great, but the pace of the story itself was terrible. Most of the chapters moved so slow it was painful. And then in the end, it felt rushed, like the author was tying all the loose ends and going back and forth in time and it felt forced. The story was okay and that’s why I listened to the whole book, but I imagine a good editor could’ve done the book a lot better.

In her late 20s, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy - only keeping her from meeting her goals - she decided to set herself a challenge: she would not shop for an entire year. The Year of Less documents Cait's life for 12 months during which she bought only consumables.

I read parts of the book with my husband and he thought she was sharing too much personal detail that took away from the main idea of the book. But as a woman, I appreciated the detail and getting to know the author, as well as the circumstances that brought her to do this experiment. I think it’s a good read and that she provides good insight as well as a few ideas you can incorporate. I’ll have to agree that the book felt a little long but I don’t regret this purchase, particularly because I’m in a similar season in my life, trying to get rid of the excess in order to focus on the important. If you are looking for something to get you started in a similar journey, then this book is for you.

I think the storyline moved too slow. I figured out what was going to happen too early in the book. But I kept telling myself that there had to be something else to the book. As it turns out, there wasn’t much else though. I may ask for a refund on this one.

I figured this story out half way through. I kept listening because I thought it would surely have a twist. But the twist never came. It’s still clever in the sense that it makes you lose track of what’s happening to whom and I absolutely loved that. I still think it’s a good read but it may have been better in my opinion.

This felt like reading a contemporary classic piece of literature. I thought as a Hispanic minority I knew a lot about this topic but this was just another level of depth. You can feel what the author is trying to tell us through the characters and it just shook me to my core. I totally recommend this book. It will move you to tears and will change your whole perspective.
