Pick of the Day

The Bad Mothers' Book Club by Keris Stainton

⭐⭐⭐⭐ This book is more chicklit than lesfic but is thoroughly enjoyable. It starts in the dreaded gate-moms world. Yeah, that is...

Unknown Forces by Samantha Hicks

We’ve had a big learning from his book: covers DO NOT represent what is inside. At all. Look at the cover – it has a bright, happy feel about it. The book is anything but.

Jennifer Wilson lost her parents seventeen years back and she became the de facto parent to her younger sister, Kelsey. Jennifer left her studies to bring up her sister. Riley Blake is Kelsey’s BFF who is always hanger around at the sisters’. Jennifer cannot stand Riley and her wild ways. When Kelsey gets pregnant thanks to a hook-up at a club, Jennifer and Riley end up spending time together and at long last acknowledge their mutual crush. And then all sorts of drama erupts in both their lives.

In the first scene, we felt Jennifer was ridiculous. Somehow Kelsey’s announcement of her pregnancy to her sister and bestie becomes a fight between the two – and Kelsey, her situation and feelings are completely overlooked. However, as the book progressed, Jennifer was nice – very nice, in fact. But Riley. We’ve never met such a self-absorbed, childish, immature and dislikeable character ever. The limit was when Jennifer loses her sister, it becomes about Riley’s feelings being hurt and Riley ghosting on Jennifer. Worse, the author tries to have us sympathise with Riley at all times. No. Just no. Also there was absolutely no necessity to kill off Kelsey, one of the sweetest characters written.

We completed this book only and only due to bull-headed tenacity and because we did like Jennifer quite a bit. This one is so not recommended.
