Author: First Book Publish:2009 Books in series: 2 Avg. Book Rating:8.1 Characters: Ана Каренина, II том (Anna Karenina, 2 Volumes Book 1) First published: December 7th 2009Rating: 8.1 stars GoodReads:Ана Каренина, II том Review: The book story was amazing because the author is/was male and he captured very feminine thoughts and feelings. He captured what it feels like to be viewed as property, especially long ago and how limited a woman’s choices really were back then. You either were born into a social setting that would allow you to be kept or you were born into hard labor and living. There was a non-existent middle class in Russia at that time. Anna Kareninová I (1/2) (Anna Karenina, 2 Volumes Book 2) First published: February 6th 2017Rating: 8.12 stars GoodReads:Anna Kareninová I (1/2) Review: Mnohí ju považujú za jeden z najlepších románov všetkých čias. Anna Kareninová je Tolstojov klasický príbeh lásky a nevery odohrávajúci sa v Moskve a Petrohrade v prostredí vyšších spoločenských kruhov, ktorý zachytáva dramatický vývoj milostného vzťahu Anny, krásnej vydatej ženy, a vojvodu Vronského, vplyvného armádneho dôstojníka.

I personally think that Meri handled the news fairly well I don’t think that I would be as composed about it as she was to find out my “family” is not technically my “family”.

Book Rating:8.2 Characters: Meet Fifty Shades Continued – Fifty Shades Freed (Meet Fifty Shades Continued Book 1) First published: May 14th 2017Rating: 8.28 stars GoodReads:Meet Fifty Shades Continued – Fifty Shades Freed Review: While there are instances when the narrative becomes fast-paced and exciting, those are few and far in between. Christian sometimes overthinks things – which is fine, really. But there has to be a better way to narrate those moments.

Book Rating:7.2 Characters: Miracle on the 17th Green (Travis Mckinley Book 1) First published: May 9th 2010Rating: 7.22 stars GoodReads:Miracle on the 17th Green Review: I expected “Miracle on the 17th Green” to be a light, heart-warming, love story like so many of the other James Patterson works I’ve read. I anticipated a quick read with an underlying golf theme somehow equating enduring love to the game of golf through a not so subtle metaphor; maybe something along the lines of “Like a strong/healthy golf swing, a strong/healthy relationship requires a lot of work… and just when you think you’ve got it figured out you’ll run into some uexpected change or ki

Book Rating:8.6 Characters: Reality Girl: Episode One (Behind The Scenes Book 1) First published: September 14th 2016Rating: 8.6 stars GoodReads:Reality Girl: Episode One Review: Recently out of college, broke, jobless, and without a boyfriend, Lou Whitson is recognized by a talent scout at a football game, and then offered the opportunity of a lifetime. To be the star of a reality television show. Along with it, $500,000 in prize money. There is a catch, but it isn’t much. Especially considering her life’s lack of love. Live with six different men, one a month, for six months. Then, pick one to marry for an additional $500,000. A Navy SEAL, a biker, a jock, a surfer, a business man, and a billionaire. Without hesitation, she agrees. This is her story. It’s smoking hot, sexy, funny, and will take place at the pace of one book a month for six months. Each book has a satisfying ending (never a cliffhanger) that will leave you grinning for more.
