{Release Day Review} Fearless Flying by Karen Gordon @joiedemidvivre

I love Karen Gordon’s books. Her writing is always solid, her characters are always so unique and interesting and as a character driven reader, I find everything I have read from her to be super engaging. Fearless Flying and the Vivienne Series is no different. I really enjoyed this book. Fearless Flying is the first book in a seven book series (and each book is coming out one month after the previous book- how is that for instant gratification!?). The series centers around the main character Vivienne. I adored Vivienne. I could see so many aspects of my personality in her, but I think that is part of her magic. I think tons of people will be able to see themselves in this introverted perfectionist that decides to switch things up in her life and take charge. Even if at first glance, that doesn’t sound like you, you will be surprised at how very relate-able Vivienne is. What I loved about Vivienne and Danny is that he is not some… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Burnouts, Geeks, and Jesus Freaks: A Love Story by Karen Gordon

{Review+Giveaway} Burnouts, Geeks, and Jesus Freaks: A Love Story by Karen Gordon

Burnouts, Geeks and Jesus Freaks is a quirky and really sweet love story. The story starts in 1999 and spans many years, following the characters throughout childhood, high school and beyond. It was lots of fun, super sweet, and gives you a couple that you just want to root for against all odds. Ben and Carrie are next door neighbors, Ben falling into the geek category and Carrie falling more into the burnout category by default. But they are each so much more than their stereotypes. Karen Gordon does an excellent job at both poking fun at and exaggerating the stereotypes as she does with making her characters grow and break the mold. Carrie has it rough at home. Her mother is basically unhinged and all she does it take it out on Carrie. Only Ben and MG know what her home life is really like. And because of her mothers verbal abuse, Carrie has a big issue with letting anyone see her cry. As weird as this sounds, tracking… Read more »
