Bobby Beckerson was the American all-star hockey player. He was the spitting image of perfection to his family. Goofy, sweet, and undeniably gorgeous, he had everything but the one girl he wanted, River Ahlers. River Ahlers is successful in everything but love. She's been in love with Adam Beckerson since they were kids. Worst of all she's stuck right in the middle of the brothers dueling over everything and anything, and she doesn't even know she's the ultimate prize.

I could only make it through chapter 5. The recording quality is low and sounds like someone using a cassette recorder to record their own voice. The story doesn't grab your attention, at all, and the characters up til this point are very flat and unoriginal.

At 28, Stephanie Land's plans of breaking free from the roots of her hometown in the Pacific Northwest to chase her dreams of attending a university and becoming a writer were cut short when a summer fling turned into an unexpected pregnancy. She turned to housekeeping to make ends meet, and with a tenacious grip on her dream to provide her daughter the very best life possible, Stephanie worked days and took classes online to earn a college degree, and began to write relentlessly.

Grabs your attention right away and keeps it to the end. At first, hearing Stephanie describe her difficulties made me feel so grateful for my own circumstances, but by the end I realized her daughter Mia is the one who should be grateful. Stephanie is such a strong role model and a great mom.

Being a Jewish housewife isn't all bagels and borscht. There's a much deeper, sometimes darker, and often laugh-out-loud funny side to Jewish female life that's uncovered in The Secret Diary of a Jewish Housewife.This is a book for spiritual seekers, original thinkers, and all those women who also grapple with life's big questions.

I was not able to get very far into this book. The author and reader spoke too quickly and unclearly. She also spoke monotonously.

Are you ready to see your fixer-upper? These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV's Fixer Upper. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like: Who are these people? What's the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life?

I didn't know much about Chip and JoJo prior to reading this book. I'd caught the show a few times (while at the dentist, we don't have cable) and so I thought I'd check out the book.

I loved reading about their crazy wonderful life and adventures!
