#FRC2016 #Reviews @BookSparks @emilybrettbooks @gingermckchav @kristykryszczak #MMBBR

I have been snuggled up reading some more of the fantastic #FRC2016 picks...The courses have been AMAZING!!  There is still time to buy Christmas gifts and books make very awesome gifts, hint, hint, hint, hint...

Here are some of my thoughts:

November 15, 2016 – Found: A Novel by Emily Brett
Course Title: International Nursing
Department: Medical Adventure
Description: Twenty-seven-year-old ICU nurse Natalie Ulster has a desire to see the world. In each country, however, she finds herself confronted with near-death accidents. Too many coincidences force her to ask herself a frightening question: Is someone trying to kill her?
MY THOUGHTS: This book was quite engaging.  It is about so much more than is about living one's life and finding a way to be fully present in your life.  It takes you across the world and leave you reflecting on your own life.  I felt that I felt the struggles of Natalie and the struggles of patient care.  It was a well rounded book that kept me engaged throughout.
November 22, 2016 – In the Heart of Texas: A Novel by Ginger McKnight-Chavers
Course Title: Pop Culture Conversations
Department: Women’s Fiction Studies
Description: In the Heart of Texas is a wry, humorous commentary on the complexities of race, class, relationships, politics, popular culture, and celebrity in our current society. Jo Randolph, the “poor man’s Halle Berry,” has successfully avoided waiting tables since leaving Midland, Texas, but 24 hours of poor decisions in Hollywood send her back home to lay low and reconnect with her roots.
MY THOUGHTS:  A great book about self discovery with some laugh out loud moments.  The interactions that were in the book made me smile ear to ear.  There is so much heart in this book and will make the reader feel connected to the characters.  It is a great read for a book club or to share with a friend.

November 8, 2016 – Unexpected Love by Kristy Kryszczak
Course Title: Sex and the City 101
Department: Women’s Fiction Studies
Description: Ready for a SJP-replay? Settle in with this debut novel about Inez, a freelance beauty writer living in NYC who’s navigating life in her thirties and the complicated romances she gets pulled into along the way.
MY THOUGHTS: I got sucked into this book.  It was such fun.  Love is quite complicated and Kryszczak captured the struggles and triumphs so well.  It was not a super long book, so I was able to read it quickly which kept me connected to the characters and their story.  It was well plotted and proved to be quite a strong debut novel.
