This week’s review is Writers & Lovers by Lily King. One of my favorite ways to rest is by curling up with a good book. Like movies and music, all genres appeal to me, and I give all books a chance to be ‘heard’!

Writers & Lovers by Lily King
Writers & Lovers by Lily King is a good fit for you if you’re looking for an easy, quick book. With an easy to follow storyline and a handful of characters, the story is entertaining.
The story follows Casey Peabody, a young and struggling writer, as she is trying to overcome is her mother’s sudden death and a recent breakup with her boyfriend. She decides to move to Massachusetts in an effort to grasp life again and find focus in life.
This book is also available with Kindle Unlimited Membership Plans.
As a former child prodigy in golf, she juggles waiting tables in an upscale area while trying to finish a novel she has been working on for six years. During this time, she meets and engages in several love affairs. Just as she has back luck in life, she has bad luck with love, but that doesn’t stop her determination to make it with writing and love.
Just as she has given up on love, she meets and falls for two different guys at the same time. She wrestles with which guy to choose as she also wrestles with what she really wants in life. Transitioning from young adult to adult isn’t easy, as Casey knows all too well.

I was disappointed in this novel. The story was a slow build, and none of it really held me into the story. The plot falls flat and goes nowhere even with the main character’s ups and downs. With the hope of a good ending, I pushed through it. However, I was vastly disappointed with the ending as it was underwhelming. The climax wasn’t clear, and the conclusion didn’t tie up all the strings of the story.
But as always – Just because I didn’t find it entertaining, doesn’t mean you won’t.

Book of the Month Club
I enjoyed books so much that I joined the Book of the Month Club to continue receiving the latest and greatest books via mail. Some of the books are exclusive to BOTM club members a month prior to their official publishing date! Each month I’m excited about the monthly selections, and it’s tough to select just one. (And when I can’t decide on one, I can add additional books for a small add-on charge and – as always – shipping is included in the monthly membership fee.) Can’t find one you want? That’s okay, too! Skip a month, pocket the credit to spend next month, and you won’t be charged for that current month.
