The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - A Review

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer


My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this book far more than I expected to.
I don't know what I was expecting, but I didn't think I'd like it so much. I finished it so fast, I was surprised, it was suddenly over. I wanted more.
I adored Juliet, the main character. I loved her snark and wit, and her passion. I came to love the people of Guernsey, just as she did...through their letters.
I abhorred Mark. He was pretentious and exhausting. I'm glad she dumped him.
I would have liked the book to read more as a novel, and felt maybe we would've gotten more of the story, if not for the entire thing being letters, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I have that book on my list of "want to read"
in fact I have probably over 100 books on that list. I used to read so much more then I do now.

Since I want to grow up and be just like Wendy, I'm gonna add this one to my "wanna read" list too.
Thanks for the review. I love reading!
