Review - What my Mother Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones

From Sonya Sones site - What's this Book about

Why don't I let Sophie tell you:

 My name is Sophie.
This book is about me.
It tells the heart-stoppingly riveting story
of my first love.
And also of my second.
And, okay, my third love, too.
 It's not that I'm boy crazy.
It's just that even though
I'm almost fifteen
I've been having sort of a hard time
trying to figure out the difference
between love and lust.
 It's like
my mind
and my body
and my heart
just don't seem to be able
to agree on anything.

I'm an awful lot older than Sophie, but I still haven't quite figured out the difference between love and lust. It's so hard to separate the two. But maybe lust is when your body loves someone else's body, and love is when your heart loves someone else's heart ... and their body!

Book Review - 3 1/2 More Sugar Please

As many of you know, Verse Novels are my simple pleasure.  When I am in a reading funk I look to one of these.  I haven't found Verse Novels for adults, all YA which isn't my favourite genre but I have still enjoyed.  Well this one was definitely YA, just a cute read.

Great for very young adults, they will be drawn into the high school dynamics, best friends, mom and daughter relationship and finding what you think is love.

I enjoyed that Sonya Sones had a lesson in this one.  If this wasn't in verse I wouldn't have even picked it up, but a fast cute read.

Anyone been intrigued and  wants to try a Verse Novel - I highly recommend any of Lisa Schroeder's, absolute amazing author of verse.

Anyone know of any Adult Verse Novels, searching online hasn't helped, so maybe they don't exist.


  1. I listened to a novel in verse and had trouble following it. I need to try to read one.

  2. I loved this book when I was 14! You took me back there for a second thanks :)

  3. I want to try verse novels more, since the ones I've tried, I just couldn't get into. Maybe I'm not picking the good ones?

  4. O this sounds like something I might dig. Great review.

  5. I've never read a novel in verse. Well, at least not recently, and not that made enough of an impression to remember. I wouldn't have thought that it would lead to a quick read!

    Good luck finding adult novels in verse, sorry I can't help.

  6. Have you ever read Archy and Mehitabel, by Don Marquis? That's a verse novel not exclusively for YA.
