Book Review

 
 
 
Well, I figured I'd try my hand at keeping track of the different books I'm reading.
 
I know that I'm always looking for new books to read and other people's opinions on books they've been reading it, so I'm going to add my own two cents into the world on books I've read!!
 
The most recent book I've finished is called The Murderer's Daughters and it's by Randy Susan Meyers.
 
A brief synopsis of the book:
 
 
It took a while for me to get interested in this book, and truth be told I never really did.  I wasn't invested in any of the characters, and didn't really care what happened at the end of the book. 
 
I did finish the book, and the last thirty pages were probably my favorite part of the book.  The scene where their father kills their mother and stabs one of the sisters was very early in the book and a very short scene.  When they're young the girls are forced into an orphanage because none of their extended family will take them, and the book tells their life stories as they grow up. 
 
Obviously the mother's death and father's guilt changes them forever, but while reading this book forever just seemed to last foreeeeever. 
 
I gave it 2 stars because I was able to handle reading it through to the end, and there wasn't anything in particular that I disliked about the book; I just found it boring.
 
 
 
If anyone else has read it I'd love to hear your opinions!!
