Wishing, Hoping, & Praying


Someday My Prince Will Come: True Adventures of a Wannabe Princess –Jerramy Fine

My friend Lesley, also a fellow book addict, has a great blog called A Life in Books.  I am avid reader of her blog, she rarely reads anything that I have ever heard of before and I have gleaned many books to add to my “to be read” list.  Most of the time I read Lesley’s blog and head over to GoodReads, mark the books as “To-read” and then that’s it.  Until now, I had never read a Lesley pick!  Lesley has a great review here.

I was really looking foward to reading this one, until my friend Susan (who is also friends with Lesley, in fact Lesley is her friend and I only met Lesley very recently) read it and LOVED it.  You would think that was a good thing, except that books that Susan falls in love with typically don’t elicit the same response from me.  I usually enjoy them, but I don’t love them like Susan did.  I was disappointed because I really wanted to LOVE Someday My Prince Will Come.   (You can read Susan’s review here)

Well, the good news is, I DID love this book!  :-)  This is a book for anyone who has ever felt that they were in the wrong place.  Anyone who has ever wanted something different than what they had.  Anyone who doesn’t feel like they belong in their place in the world.   If you want to know more about the book you’ll have to visit Susan or Lesley’s blog.

Haha! Lesley and I always joke around that we hate what the other one reads... I guess I can add you to the list of people who don't share the same book loves I do! :-D
