August Book of the Month


I figure I should start doing a small review each month for my Book of the Month selections. I have read some incredible picks through this subscription box.


My Thoughts:

I wanted to love this book. I really loved the chapters where they were at dinner. The revelations that occur were fascinatingly heartbreaking. However I struggle with books that keep jumping back in time…like every other chapter. It makes it hard for me to follow.

Sabrina is a wonderful character. The people she has around her dinner table are intriguing.


three-starsthree-starsthree-starsIT WAS GOOD! — This book was good. I didn’t love it and I didn’t dislike it.  There maybe have been a few things that bothered me while reading this book and it may have been slow in parts. I would still recommend this book; it just wasn’t a favorite of mine. {Rating Scale by Reading Like a Boss}

Synposis: (From Goodreads)

We’ve been waiting for an hour. That’s what Audrey says. She states it with a little bit of an edge, her words just bordering on cursive. That’s the thing I think first. Not: Audrey Hepburn is at my birthday dinner, but Audrey Hepburn is annoyed.

At one point or another, we’ve all been asked to name five people, living or dead, with whom we’d like to have dinner. Why do we choose the people we do? And what if that dinner was to actually happen? These are the questions Rebecca Serle contends within her utterly captivating novel, The Dinner List, a story imbued with the same delightful magical realism as One Day,and the life-changing romance of Me Before You.

When Sabrina arrives at her thirtieth birthday dinner she finds at the table not just her best friend, but also three significant people from her past, and well, Audrey Hepburn. As the appetizers are served, wine poured, and dinner table conversation begins, it becomes clear that there’s a reason these six people have been gathered together.

Delicious but never indulgent, sweet with just the right amount of bitter, The Dinner List is a romance for our times. Bon appetit.

Happy Reading y’all!
