    I am not sure if this would be categorized as a YA book or not. It is told in alternating chapters, a mother in first person and the daughter in third person. If YA, you'd think the daughter would be in first person, too. This mother is famous for her fearlessness. Her daughter begins ...

    3.5 stars. Great beachy, summery, feel-good read. ...

    While I wouldn't consider this complete fluff it was definitely a light chick lit kinda read. I liked the alternating characters between mother & daughter. And any mom can relate to the teenage trouble years drama. ...

    Although I have had How to Eat a Cupcake sitting in my TBR pile for ages, Every Wild Heart is my first book from Meg Donohue, although it will not be my last. It is an easy read, not too heavy, and full of warmth, love and humor. Although there is certainly some drama and a touch of su...

    When we used to vacation in Cape Cod, after the kids were put to bed, my husband and I would listen to Delilah After Dark on the radio. People would call into Delilah, tell her a story about a lost love, a current love, anything to do with love, and request a song. It was very soothing...

    Another winner for "books to pack on vacation," is a quick to read, heartwarming story that will give you what life so often can not: resolutions to almost all of its problems. The most surprising thing to me was my connecting more with Nic than with G.G. As a mother I expected the la...

    You can't tame the wild beast isn't that what they say. You also can't lead a horse to water. This is a wonderful plot full of twist and turns. Can you really love someone or something back to normal if they were unloved, abused, or felt unwanted? Whether a patient with a coma, an...

    I've never read anything by this author before, but I picked up this book after seeing it in Bogel's Summer Reading Guide. Language: Several f-words, a couple uses of Jesus's name in vain, and other milder cussing. For some reason it didn't feel as dense to me as bad language often...

    The premise of this book sounded amazing and I was psyched when I won it as a Goodreads giveaway, however, the story was a start and stop of decent storytelling. Every Wild Heart revolves around Gail Gideon, a talk-radio host who makes her living from giving advice to lovelorn wome...

    EVERY WILD HEART is one of those books that balances the emotion and family dynamics along with a hint of mystery that is threaded throughout. What I loved the most about this story is the evolution of Gail (the mother) and Nic (the daughter). Their relationship with each other and...

    3.5 Meg Donohue's latest novel, Every Wild Heart, has just released. Gail Gideon, known as G.G., is the host of a successful talk radio show. Her own divorce was the fuel for her nightly advice program. She's also the mom of fourteen year old Nic. But, not everyone loves Gail's s...

    When we used to vacation in Cape Cod, after the kids were put to bed, my husband and I would listen to Delilah After Dark on the radio. People would call into Delilah, tell her a story about a lost love, a current love, anything to do with love, and request a song. It was very soothing...

    Another winner for "books to pack on vacation," is a quick to read, heartwarming story that will give you what life so often can not: resolutions to almost all of its problems. The most surprising thing to me was my connecting more with Nic than with G.G. As a mother I expected the la...

    Ah... who doesn't need a good chick lit in their life? We all do from time to time, and Meg Donohue just writes so beautifully you find yourself immersed in the story in no time. I immediately identified with Gail because I have three daughters (and one son) and my oldest is going to b...

    At its core, Every Wild Heart is the story of a mother and daughter. More character driven than action oriented, I found myself becoming increasingly interested in the two women whom the story centers around. Gail Gideon is a household name and radio host of The Gail Gideon Show, fa...

    Ah... who doesn't need a good chick lit in their life? We all do from time to time, and Meg Donohue just writes so beautifully you find yourself immersed in the story in no time. I immediately identified with Gail because I have three daughters (and one son) and my oldest is going to b...

    I was attracted by the fact that Delilah, a radio talk show host I had listened to in the past who played love songs on her program, was the inspiration for the book. So was disappointed to discover this is really for young adults, therefore I was not the targeted audience. But to be f...

    2.5 stars. There wasn't anything bad about this book, it was just a little...boring? I think I was expecting more romance but it was mostly a book about a girl and her love for horses with a little intrigue about a stalker thrown in. I also couldn't really relate to G.G. and found her ...

    Although I have had How to Eat a Cupcake sitting in my TBR pile for ages, Every Wild Heart is my first book from Meg Donohue, although it will not be my last. It is an easy read, not too heavy, and full of warmth, love and humor. Although there is certainly some drama and a touch of su...

    1.5 stars - If I want a bad Hallmark movie in book form, this is it. And just like a bad movie, you can fast forward through whole scenes or paragraphs and not miss a thing. I did not like that the main teenage character who was 14!! was dating and sneaking around with an 18-year-old a...

    3.5 Meg Donohue's latest novel, Every Wild Heart, has just released. Gail Gideon, known as G.G., is the host of a successful talk radio show. Her own divorce was the fuel for her nightly advice program. She's also the mom of fourteen year old Nic. But, not everyone loves Gail's s...

    This book had a promising premises, popular radio show host mom, horse obsessed daughter, crazy stalker and plenty of mother daughter drama. But it just kind of fell flat for me. Quick, light read but nothing special. ...

    When we used to vacation in Cape Cod, after the kids were put to bed, my husband and I would listen to Delilah After Dark on the radio. People would call into Delilah, tell her a story about a lost love, a current love, anything to do with love, and request a song. It was very soothing...

    Favorite Quotes: Radio, like the internet, offered a cloak of anonymity that suited harassers perfectly; add to that the dark hours of night during which I was on air, and The Gail Gideon Show had proven itself catnip for crazies. Lila began ferociously stabbing at the kale, fa...

    Another winner for "books to pack on vacation," is a quick to read, heartwarming story that will give you what life so often can not: resolutions to almost all of its problems. The most surprising thing to me was my connecting more with Nic than with G.G. As a mother I expected the la...

    3.5 stars I first heard about Every Wild Heart by Meg Donohue from Anne Bogel (Modern Mrs. Darcy and What Should I Read Next? podcast). Ann recommended this book to fans of Kristin Hannah. Yes please! I'm a huge fan of Kristin Hannah's books. While I can see a link to Kristin Hannah...

    A wonderful story of a mother and daughter navigating the next step in their road together. The descriptions of life as an introverted, anxiety-ridden teen were amazing, sent me back to my own high-school years and that of my daughters. BUT the change that accompanied her recovery was ...

    A bright quick read. I enjoyed the characters and I enjoyed the relationship between the mother and daughter. I remember what it felt like when my perfect little girls started to grow up and it just about turned my hair gray. Liked a little romance on the side too. ...

    I reviewed this for RT Book Reviews be sure to check out my review there ...

    You can't tame the wild beast isn't that what they say. You also can't lead a horse to water. This is a wonderful plot full of twist and turns. Can you really love someone or something back to normal if they were unloved, abused, or felt unwanted? Whether a patient with a coma, an...

    Passionate and funny, radio personality Gail Gideon is a true original. Nine years ago when Gail?s husband announced that he wanted a divorce, her ensuing on-air rant propelled her local radio show into the national spotlight. Now, ?The Gail Gideon Show? is beloved by millions of...

    I've never read anything by this author before, but I picked up this book after seeing it in Bogel's Summer Reading Guide. Language: Several f-words, a couple uses of Jesus's name in vain, and other milder cussing. For some reason it didn't feel as dense to me as bad language often...

    The premise of this book sounded amazing and I was psyched when I won it as a Goodreads giveaway, however, the story was a start and stop of decent storytelling. Every Wild Heart revolves around Gail Gideon, a talk-radio host who makes her living from giving advice to lovelorn wome...
