I’ve mentioned in other posts that my boys are avid readers. I am as well. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a book on my nightstand. I read every night before I go to bed. Summers are great because I can read during the day as well. I love to escape into a good book.
I’m one of those people who has to have an actual book, I don’t like reading on my tablet. There is just something about having the actual book in hand. Moving my bookmark through the book to show how far I’ve come in the adventures of the characters.
As a blogger, I’ve actually never done a book review. I often give book suggestions to friends on Facebook or in person, but I’ve never even thought about doing it on here.
Last week, I finished reading the book The Promise Girls by Marie Bostwick. I actually picked this book on Amazon prime day because it was on sale and sounded interesting. When I finished reading the book, at the end the author encouraged her readers to share their love of the book with their friends on social media. It hit me, hey I do this on Facebook, but why not on my blog… so here we go. My first book review.
The Promise Girls is about 3 sisters who were raised by a single mother. The girls were being raised as child prodigies in music, art and writing. That is until the oldest daughter decides to make some changes of her own. The girls all end up leaving California and moving to Seattle as they come of age. Each of the girls tries their hardest to avoid the artistic life their mother had worked so hard to push them into. That is until the middle daughter gets in a car accident. This incident will turn their lives upside-down, inside-out and backwards. Together they will learn what they are truly made of.
This is a great book about families and strength. It will also remind you that you need to look at the world from many angles to really get the true picture.
If you enjoy reading a book about strong women… I say try The Promise Girls!. Me,
I’m off to read some more… right now I’m reading another Marie Bostwick book, A Single Thread, which is part of her Cobbled Court Quilt series.
If you’ve read this book, let me know. If you have any book suggestions for me…. please let me know, I’m always looking for good books!
