No Saints in Kansas. Nicola Yoon Boxed Set. Nicola Yoon 2-Book Bundle: John Green Box Set. She is at her breaking point in her life. Her life is going no where and its getting worse day by day. She goes into a antique shop and finds a beautiful pendant she adores. The woman who sells her the pendant knew what it could do and that it is magic.
The wishes you say out loud, they will come true! The neighbors dog disappears. Then she makes anther wish taking her down a dark path but the wishes are irresistible to her. I loved the concept of the book and the moral decisions that Emma had to make. The wishes concept was intoxicating and she was swept up into changing her life. This book is entertaining and held my attention. This is usually not my type of book to read, but the more pages I flipped, the more invested I became Emma Davies lives a life very unfulfilling to her.
She hates her job, her boss is a sexual predator and abusive. Her son is severely disabled, her daughter is a rebellious teenager and her husband is an unsuccessful writer, which causes Emma to have to be the family breadwinner. Her marriage is pretty much on the rocks. Emma goes into a antique shop This is usually not my type of book to read, but the more pages I flipped, the more invested I became Emma goes into a antique shop and finds a beautiful pendant she adores.
The saleswoman knows what magical power the pendant has but doesn't say anything. Emma first notices her new ability to wish away the things she doesn't like when, as her neighbor's dog continually barks through the night, she wishes that they had never gotten the dog. Suddenly no one recalls the puppy ever existing, except Emma.
I enjoyed the concept of this story and the moral decisions that Emma has to make. I really liked this book and I'm looking forward to reading more by Janis Thomas! Thanks to NetGalley for an advanced digital copy in exchange for an honest review. I didn't like the narrator's style. There was too much desperation and panic in her voice that I found irritating. I found the main character to be whiny and full of self pity.
There was also a rape scene that was horribly graphic and I was appalled at the main character's viewpoint and hideous choices regarding that incident. I put the book aside, but picked it up later, reading the Kindle version. As the story unfolded I realized that the main character's lack of gratitude was central to the story, and I could leave out the tone of panic as I read the book myself. It proved to be a very meaningful story. It was well researched and well written. I'm finding that kind of professionalism to be rare in this age of self publishing.
I look forward to reading more from this author. So far her books have been very good! Jul 05, Dani O'Connor rated it it was amazing. When you have to listen to Harry potter on Audible to go to sleep after finishing a book because it has left such unsettling emotions in you, it gets 5 stars from me The main character isn't likeable, you empathise with her but she can be irritating and you just want to scream at her but at times understand where she is coming from.
At times I found it a little tedious and sped read through similar thought processes in the characters mind but there was one particular incident where I wanted to When you have to listen to Harry potter on Audible to go to sleep after finishing a book because it has left such unsettling emotions in you, it gets 5 stars from me At times I found it a little tedious and sped read through similar thought processes in the characters mind but there was one particular incident where I wanted to read it and take it in but I imagined such an event in my own life and I had to skim through quickly to a hopeful better outcome but it left me with the thoughts what if and you wonder what ripples would occur if you wished certain aspects of your life away!
Definitely sends the message of not to live with regrets or to wish for change as every detail has brought you to the here and now which I loved! Oct 05, Vivian rated it it was amazing. What happens if you wishes were granted? Yesterday she was raped, beaten and humiliated. She fell on the curb outside of her house and smashed her knee. She awoke to the silence of the neighbors previously yapping new puppy. Today there is no evidence of anything ever happening. No bruises or cuts that were evident the night before.
No dog next door. Not with herself but with God. What has she done to deserve what is happening to her? Is it early onset dementia or is something just as awful happening? If everything seems so surreal, then why does she recognize the petite older lady from the new shop downtown? They one that like to give her a knowing smile and wink? With time come more wishes. Some for good some not -but with the outcome come consequences.
All That's Left of Me
The synopsis of the book was super intriguing and I honestly thought I would love it, but the more I read, the more aggravated I would get. Even without considering that the first big things to happened in this book were molestation and rape and you can correct me if I'm wrong but I saw no trigger warnings? Rape seems like something that would need a trigger warning. Emma was incredibly annoying and I feel like her thought process was shot to hell because who actually thinks like this?! She als The synopsis of the book was super intriguing and I honestly thought I would love it, but the more I read, the more aggravated I would get.
She also casually uses words like 'septuagenarian' when 'someone in their seventies' is perfectly fine. I found Emma to be a bit pretentious and sure, she had a hell of a lot of problems but a lot of them could have been dealt with if she, I don't know, TRIED? If Emma had a spine lots of her problems could've gone away but maybe that's just me.
Jul 27, A. Donenfeld-vernoux rated it it was amazing. I won this book at a writer's meeting. The genre is not something I usually select, and was about to put it on my bookshelf when I decided to read a few pages. I sat down and read the whole book in a day and a half, the half because I eventually kept falling asleep no matter how hard I tried to keep my eyes open. Thomas knows how to keep the reader entranced.
Her characters are plausible, and so likeable you are almost forced to connect with them. Emma is unhap I won this book at a writer's meeting. Emma is unhappy with her life, from the noisy puppy next door to her son Josh to a tree in her yard. But as her journey progresses, she realizes wishes coming true don't necessarily change things to happier results. My mother always told me to 'be careful what you wish for. Donenfeld-Vernoux, 5-star Amazon author of "Cave Dreams.
When you take away everything what's left? Once I got to the 3rd chapter I couldn't put this book down.. So cleverly written and the feelings of losing control are so vivid that I wanted to be able to go back or rather for Emma to be able to go back and change her wish.. I felt so strongly for her.. What I loved was as the catastrophic changes happened sh When you take away everything what's left? What I loved was as the catastrophic changes happened she evolved to become more confident and self assured..
Not knowing the outcome but knowing the reality she faced in the present was incomprehensible. This book really needs to be made into a film.. This is one where you just have to buy the premise and then you'll enjoy the story. Emma has had a string of rotten luck in her life as well as some rotten people like her boss. Her husband Colin is well, not the most helpful person in the world, her daughter Katie is a teenager testing limits, and her son Josh has CP.
And then in an odd twist, she makes a random wish that comes true. She doesn't connect what's happening at first but then Everything has a consequence, both good and bad and This is one where you just have to buy the premise and then you'll enjoy the story. Everything has a consequence, both good and bad and Thomas lays those out.
It's a little confusing at times but intriguing. The big question- what about Josh? Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. Try this one for a thought provoking read. Jul 13, Leanna Mattea rated it really liked it. I was drawn in from the first page. Emma Davies lives a very unsatisfactory life, hating her job and her abusive boss and her life in general. She has a severely disabled son, a distant rebellious teenage daughter, and a writer husband, that writes unsuccessfully, while she works as the primary breadwinner.
Somehow she discovers the ability to wish away the problems in her life, resulting in complications she could never have anticipated. A very absorbing story that kept me mesmerized throughout. I thank the publisher and author for my complimentary copy, and hope my review does it justice. I was interested in this book because of the concept -it sounded like it could be a good story.
We often make wishes without thinking of the ramifications if the wish came true. I liked the character of Josh but most of the characters did not move me at all. The story, as well, did not resonate. I don't enjoy reading scenes of graphic violence so my rating went from a 3 star to 2 due to graphic sexu I received this book "All That's Left of Me" from Goodreads and all opinions expressed are my own.

I don't enjoy reading scenes of graphic violence so my rating went from a 3 star to 2 due to graphic sexual violence. I neither loved nor hated this book and would say go ahead and give it a try, if violence is not your cup of tea, the story lacks nothing if you skip those scenes May 28, Janet rated it really liked it. What a strange story. Emma is the main character. She is a wife, a Mother of a teenage daughter and a younger son with cerebral palsy. Something strange happens to Emma and her wishes start coming true.
This could be good or it could be bad- very bad. This family could use a break. I liked Emma and actually felt sorry for her at times but she a Wow! I liked Emma and actually felt sorry for her at times but she also frustrated me at times. Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union for allowing me to read an advance copy for my honest review. Emma Davies is not enjoying her life and battles to get out of bed in the morning.
She hates her boss, her teenage daughter is distant, her husband seems lazy and her son has cerebral palsy. One day she makes a wish, not a big one and then realises that it's come true, either that or she is losing touch with reality. She soon discovers that her wishes can only be subtractions from her life and that they cannot be undone. This is not a sweet summery read about wishes coming true, more of a warning about being careful what you wish for because you just might get it.
