Happy Good Friday Loves. I recently finished reading two great books and – as is the case with all good things that happen to me – I feel the need to share with you.
If you have checked out my bookshelf lately you will notice that I recently finished reading Tick Tock by James Patterson. In true James Patterson fashion this book was a good read. It took a little bit of time for the story to get going, but a quarter of the way into the book I was hooked and I had to know what happens next in the life of Detective Michael Bennett.
This crime thriller has an action packed storyline with an interesting and unexpected twist at the end. I love it when the story in a book all comes together, in crime thrillers the why is very important for me. I like to guess what will happen – although I very rarely figure it out. That’s why the motive behind a crime thriller is so important to the story. If you want an easy read with a mysterious plot and a little bit of family drama pick up a copy of Tick Tock by James Patterson.
After reading a serious crime thriller I like to take a break from the serious side of life and read a lighthearted, feel good, funny book…let me tell you that White Girl Problems by Babe Walker is just that.
I absolutely loved reading this book; it was the perfect pick me up. White Girl Problems by Babe Walker will make you laugh so hard that you will cry. If you have ever let a superficial mishap take over your life and turn into the end of the world as you know it then you have had a white girl problem.
My two favourite parts of this book are Babe’s jungle themed birthday party and the first time that she has sex. Everyone needs to pick up a copy of this book because it will change your attitude and make you rethink what really matters in life. A little word to the wise – things that you think are problems are really not!
A little piece of advice – but not a spoiler alert – read this book in the comfort of your own home or in another secluded area. I made the mistake of reading White Girl Problems on a four hour flight and I was laughing so hard I must have seemed like a crazy person to the man sitting beside me.
Have a great weekend everyone.
