The art forger by Barb Shapiro

This book made me angry because first off Claire the main character knew she was painting a fake for someone and they were going to try and pass it off as an original and to me that equals a crime and I don't think people should think of crime as a poof poof sort of thing . This book made me angry more than anything else and this person did understand an artist at all . I am a little bit of an artist somewhat and I would not like someone copying my work and trying to pass it off as their own . There you have it folks this book is a 3 stars and I'm being generous really .

Another great book

Wow another great book . I really did like this one . I think God must have been using this wedding shop to make Cora re discover her faith . I think ladies of faith would like this book . I really cant put into words about how much I liked this book . I usually use a star system and this one was somewhere between 4 and a half to five stars . I will not go too much into depth because that will definitely give some of the book away and I don't want to do that . Just read this book you wont be disappointed .

Child of the river by Irma Joubert

this book was advertised as ww 2 era historical fiction with scripture in it as well . This book I would describe as some left over apartheid from south Africa . This girl was poor and her father was a drunk and she wanted to make something of herself and she certainly did and did well for herself and others she helped . I will not say more than this because it will give away too much of the book . I certainly did enjoy this book very much and learned a lot about history of the war in different parts of the world .It is very much worth the read and I highly recommend it .I want to thank booklook for sending me this copy in exchange for my honest review .

This book was clearly written by someone who had no love loss for Amanda Knox

This book was clearly written by someone who had no love loss for Amanda knox . I think that this author might have had her own questions as to the guilt or innocence of Amanda knox . I still do believe that Amanda should have come home when asked by her mother . This book opened up some answers to questions I had about this whole ordeal and those made for tv movies did not do it for me . I think after reading this one , Ms. Knox should write her own memoir about her time in Italy it could clear up a lot . I did enjoy this book very much and it was a decent read . Thank you to blogging for books for sending me a copy for my honest review.

this book could have been so great

This book could have been so great . The long winded narrative killed this book for me and made it painful to continue to read . I could not even find one character to like and that my dear friends is sad ,truly sad . I was so looking forward to this book being good but no it was not so spare yourself the agony and skip this one . I hope Ms Walker does a better job on her next book because frankly this one was a dud and the publisher and editor should have let her know that before putting it on the shelf . I give it 3 stars out of five and that is being generous .

using human trafficking for entertainment is not my idea of a good book

This book was a shocker to me from chris bohjalian . I was shocked and saddened by this book . This is from one of my favorite authors as well . This book took human trafficking to a form of entertainment and not my idea of a good well written story . It was so graphic there should be a sticker warning on it . I felt betrayed by one of my fave authors and cant say why he would think this subject would be good to write about and also how can you find pleasure or excitement in someones life falling apart and yet they keep compounding the problem . This book left me troubled and uncomfortable and that is all I can say about it without giving the plot and most of the story away .I'm very disappointed in one of my favorite authors and hope his next book is far better than this one left me feeling . I give it two stars out of five .
