What is the one thing you desire in your life that you just don’t have the time in the day to do?

The one thing I desire more than anything in the whole world is the time in the day to…read. I have a pile of books my mother sent me to read about a year ago and I still have not found the time in the day where I can sit down in a quiet place (this is key) to read a good book, so when I was asked if I’d like to review Once in a Blue Moon by Eileen Gouge, I jumped up with my arm straight up in the air because I thought, maybe if I have a deadline and a good book to read, I’d for sure be able to finish the book…I was wrong.

I’m just too busy of a gal to read an entire book, so in all honesty, I got through half of Once in a Blue Moon and enjoyed the first half of the book before I realized I had hit the deadline to post my review.

What I liked about the book:
The story. Two sisters separated by circumstance as children only to re-unite as adults. This is something that doesn’t happen very often, so the story is very intriguing right off the bat.

What I didn’t like:
There were a few slow parts in the story that I would have rather skipped over. There was one part that had me on the edge of my seat and my heart racing. I do wish I could have completed the book because I’m left wondering…what next.

All in all, Once in a Blue Moon was a good read and I will finish it if it takes me till the first of the year…which it might with all of the things my family has going on during the holiday season.
