MSRL: We'll Never Tell - A Tale of Sorority Betrayal?


We'll Never TellWe'll Never Tell by Kayla Perrin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I totally forgot I had finished reading this book already (this past summer) but I never got around to doing my review.


What can I say about We'll Never Tell? It was a fun summer read. I have read Kayla Perrin novels before and I will say that I enjoyed her other books, The Delta Sisters and and The Sisters of Theta Phi Kappa, a little bit more. I guess partly because I understood the formula and I kind of knew what to expect, however, I guess I was more highly disappointed with the ending of We'll Never Tell than I was with the other two similarly themed novels. The ending just made no sense whatsoever, it wasn't logical, it didn't fit and honestly, I was mad by the time I got to the end.  I do plan to read more Kayla Perrin and support her as a writer because I think she's a great young novelist who appeals to the college aged woman, to those women  who like mysteries, and to those women who just want to good romantic read.  Coincidentally, I also recently picked up A Holiday Surprise that features Perrin as one of three authors of a holiday themed novella.

MSRL: Boring Meetings Suck! (Boring Books Suck!)


Boring Meetings Suck: Get More Out of Your Meetings, or Get Out of More MeetingsBoring Meetings Suck: Get More Out of Your Meetings, or Get Out of More Meetings by Jon Petz
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

MY REVIEW:  This was a book I read for the "office" book club.  While the title sounds provocative, it was the type of book that makes you think, "Gee, did they really have to write a whole book about this?" Or is most of this just plain common sense?  I'm just saying. It's not rocket science.

MSRL: Yoga Body Diet - Eat and Exercise for Your Body "Type"

Yoga Body DietYoga Body Diet by Kristen Schultz Dollard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


MY REVIEW:  I love, love, love this book! It's the first fitness/diet book that actually breaks down what "type" of eater you are and what type of fitness and diet plan you should be on. Who knew there was a type? This revelation has allowed me to realize that there is not "one size fits all" for diets I'm interested in trying and that in order to find something that works for me, I need to figure out how I work, then go from there.

I also like that this book provides a pre-quiz to help you figure out what "type" you are along with a recommended yoga plan and recipes to cook for your eating plan.

I recommend this book for anyone who thinks they might be "yoga-challenged" and not sure where to start. Start here.

And by the way, Rodale Books has a whole series of health/fitness books that all look very interesting.
