Georgia's Recent Reviews

This book is a little crazy...but crazy fun to read! It might even make you glance at the one next to you and wonder, “Do I really know this person?” Creepy yet perfectly alluring, Gone Girl will absorb you into every page until you start to feel a little unhinged yourself.
Some women deal with a life crisis by splurging on something expensive or updating their appearance. Cheryl Strayed, however, hikes the Pacific Crest trail…alone...with no former backpacking experience. A memoir about a woman’s grief and her mission to come to peace with a divorce and the death of her mother, Wild is powerful and profoundly honest. You will feel the suspense, the heart-break, and the overwhelming joy that comes with trying something so bold and gutsy after going through a time when just getting out of bed was a struggle.
