I was shocked when I finished this last night. I mean I read fast, but not that fast, and than I saw that the ebook was only 278 pages. I think the shortness of the book actually impacted some of the story-lines. I feel of two minds about how one of the story-lines ended (sorry, I am never rooting f...

DNF after about 12 pages. Having someone appear in and then decide to make their home in your secret closet is just beyond the realm of believable. Could it have been made believable? Sure. But it wasn't. I rolled my eyes so often my eye muscles began to cramp.

Like all of Sarah Addison Allen this book is about relationships, both friends and family, and the struggles in them.

It was well written, but I didn't really care about any of the characters. I didn't feel like any of them were believable, except maybe Adam.This book left me with so ma...

Any book that has someone who has books appear because they think she needs them wins my heart with just that. But when you also have someone who occasionally hides out in her closet (me? do that as a kid? not that I'd admit to!); doesn't fight her mother enough for independence, doesn't believe in...

This was the second in my mini-binge. Maybe it was reading it on public transit in Chicago, but it didn’t have quite the same magic that either Girl or Garden Spells had. In particular, I figured out a plot point really early and couldn’t see why the main character didn’t. After finishing, I think s...

Sarah Addison Allen may be fast becoming one of my favorite new authors. There is something so enjoyable about reading her books and I don't want to put them down or have them come to an end! Admittedly, The Sugar Queen is a wee bit predictable, but that didn't keep me from enjoying Josey's story.On...
