W.I.R.W. #4

So, over the weekend, I read not one but two books!
I very much wanted to escape from reality.
When I wasn't painting my bathroom trying to get my house ready to sell, I was reading the books.
They were quick, easy reads that helped me get through the weekend.

The first one I read was UnEnchanted by Chanda Hahn.
  It was a freebie on Amazon, and I'm so glad it was.
The storyline has such promise, but the writing could use some improvement.
It's about a girl who finds out she is a descendant of the Grimm line.
Despite the teenybopperness {yes, I made that word up}, I enjoyed the book for what it was.
I also bought {with a gift card} the sequel - Fairest.
If you want a quick read, then I recommend picking this up!

After I finished reading the above book, I wanted something else to read.
I didn't have my gc with me so I wanted to find another free book.
What I found was a book by Paul Pilkington called The One You Love.
I'm not sure how I stumbled upon the book, but I am glad I did.
It was a great read that I didn't want to put down.
As you can tell by the cover, it is set in London.
It's a suspense book that left me trying to figure out whodunnit.
I pride myself on being fairly observant when I read books and watch TV/movies, so I had practically figured out who was behind it all about halfway through the book.
It was good, but unlike UnEnchanted, I have not bought the sequel.
I don't think you really need one, and I'm satisfied with the ending of this book.

Until next week...
tell me what you're reading!

sources :: one, two


  1. I'm reading Kite Runner for the fourth time!! And, since I hadn't read it in a while, I forgot how depressing it is! Still a favorite though! The One You Love sounds interesting!!

  2. I think UnEnchanted sounds like something I would really enjoy.
