Review: Secrets


Ok, since this blog has become my confessional, I'll go ahead and admit to an "under the mattress" stash. No, no porn - pretty much the opposite - inspirational fiction. I'm too ashamed to put them on my bookshelves where people can see them, so I have a box under my bed. I'm totally serious. And this book definitely falls into that "guilty pleasure" category. I typically do not read the genre, but I have a couple of authors that I like to indulge in every now and then and Robin Jones Gunn is one of them. Don't get me wrong, these aren't literary masterpieces (sorry, Robin) and I don't know that many of my readers would fall in love with them the way I have. Gunn's Sisterchick's books are seriously some of the happiest mind candy I've ever read. And I think I feel the same way about this series. It's the literary equivalent of my love for New York Minute, A Cinderella Story, and The Lizzie McGuire Movie. Every now and then the pre-teen in me comes out and needs a simple romance with a happy ending. The acting/writing doesn't have to be great and the dialogue can be laughable, but it's exactly what I want when I'm craving a happinest boost. So while I'm not really sure this is one I'd recommend to my blog readers who are looking for a serious, intellectual read, I give it two thumbs up if you take it for what it is - complete and total fluff - and who doesn't need a little bit of brain candy every now and then?

This book was provided for my review by Waterbrook/Multnomah.
