Weekly Wrap-Up/Mini Reviews 2.16.13

My Reading Week and Mini-Reviews:

Viola in Reel Life (Viola #1) by Adriana Trigiani.  I enjoyed this book but didn't love it.  It was a little too young for me, as Viola is only 14 years old.  I love Adriana Trigiani's writing, though, and will read book two if it's available at my library.  Rating: 3/5 stars

The Lives We Lost (Fallen World #2) by Megan Crewe.  Oh wow, what a great book!  I absolutely loved this book.  Full review to come.  Rating 5/5 stars

Let Them Eat Cake (French Twist #1) by Sandra Byrd.  I saw this series featured on Tales of Whimsy and since the first book was free for Kindle, I decided to give it a try.  And I'm so glad I did!  Let Them Eat Cake was a light-hearted, fun contemporary with a Christian element.  I enjoyed every minute of it and jumped right into book two as soon as I finished reading!  Rating 4/5 stars 

Bon Appetit: A Novel (French Twist #2) by Sandra Byrd.  I liked Bon Appetit even more than its predecessor, Let Them Eat Cake.  I loved that the book takes place in France, I felt like I was living through Lexi vicariously as she explored.  I love reading books about cooking, especially baking (given that baking is my favorite kind of cooking to do) and so I really enjoyed that aspect of the story.  My one complaint is that all of the delicious recipes included and constant references to French food and pastries made me hungry!  Rating 4/5 stars

Piece de Resistance: A Novel (French Twist #3) by Sandra Byrd.  This was my favorite book in the series.  It had the most character growth.  I loved how Lexi prayed more and sought God in all things.  It was great for me to read about her getting closer to God, at this difficult time in my own life.  Rating 4/5 stars

How was your week?
