Book Club Friday!

I've actually had time to read since I've had a break from school for the past few weeks, so I'm linking up this week for Book Club Friday!

This week I'm sharing The Midwife's Confession by Diane Chamberlain.

Here's the summary from Goodreads:
Dear Anna,
What I have to tell you is difficult to write, but I know it will be far more difficult for you to hear, and I'm so sorry…

The unfinished letter is the only clue Tara and Emerson have to the reason behind their close friend Noelle's suicide. Everything they knew about Noelle—her calling as a midwife, her passion for causes, her love for her friends and family—described a woman who embraced life.Yet there was so much they didn't know.

With the discovery of the letter and its heartbreaking secret, Noelle's friends begin to uncover the truth about this complex woman who touched each of their lives—and the life of a desperate stranger—with love and betrayal, compassion and deceit.

I picked this book because I read The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain over the summer and I LOVED it, and this one had pretty good reviews on Goodreads. I liked this one, but I didn't love it. I kinda had it all figured out about halfway through, so that disappointed me a little. I always have guesses of what's going on when I read books like this, but usually I'm wrong and there's something I never saw coming at the end, but I was right with my guess about this one.

Maybe I should be proud of myself instead of disappointed?

Overall, it was a good book and I'll keep reading other books by her.

I set a goal for myself to read 50 books this year, so we'll see how that works out! I'm on my second book of the year, so I'm on track right now!


  1. Haha, you should be proud! But I don't like when I figure it out either, it takes the fun out of it!

    P.S. I love your new hat!!

  2. I loved Ceecee Wilkes too! I'm sad this one was a disappointment. I can't wait to see what other books you read in 2012!

  5. I sent a goal to read 36 books this year, that averages out to 3 books a month.

  6. I read Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes a couple months ago and loved it - I'll have to check this out for sure!
