June 2012: What Alice Forgot
Kerry: I loved this book. It was a quick read and a book that I identified with and it resonated with me. I have continued to think about it. Highly recommended.
Amanda: I LOVED this book. I could not put it down. It was such an interesting idea and I can only imagine how our "moms" in the group must have felt reading this.
Jill: Really enjoyed this book in spite of the plot contrivance of amnesia – this may be the first chick-lit book that actually made me think! Good reminder that small decisions can add up over the course of ten years.
Stephanie: I liked this book, I think because I could relate to Alice being in my late 30s with kids and a busy life. It was an easy read and enjoyable. I did think it could have been much shorter, though - I got a little frustrated with how the author dragged it out and think it would have been better at half the length.
Aday: A little cheesy in the beginning and filled with characters of little substance, but an interesting read nonetheless.
Becca: I thought this was a good, easy read. It wasn't earth-shattering, but decent enough if you're looking for a beach read.
Chari: I liked it and thought a fun, unique way to share a story. Reminds us to keep our priorities in line. Thought an easy read and good summer material.
Jenn: Truly enjoyed the book from beginning to end. It immediately dives into the drama and moves quickly. The author reveals each primary character in an interesting and meaningful way, causing you to pause and really evaluate if what you value right now is what is important to you long term.
