    Have you just read a psychological thriller that had you biting your nails and sitting on the edge of your seat? Are you in need of a light-hearted, fun ?beach read?? If so, then Smothered is the book for you! The story begins with an invitation addressed to the family of Eloise La...

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and for that, I am thankful. I can't imagine how furiously annoyed I'd be if I spent the estimated $18.99 on this. By no means is it the worst book I've ever read, but I can't recommend it. Originally marketed as a young-adult crossover n...

    Omg, what an amazing, witty story! I loved how this unemployed, normal adult lives in a world of successful, wealthy, care-free people and still tries to better herself and sets goals. I can see why this is a young adult novel because it shows that even when you are an adult, a lot of ...

    Love, LOVED, L O V E D this book. I honestly couldn't put it down. I don't remember the last time I laughed this much or felt such a genuine sense of happiness while reading anything. I connected to every word --as both a mother and a daughter --and I can only hope I'm one fraction as ...

    I love books written in diary style, it feels so intimate like you?re seeing someone?s innermost thoughts, secrets and desires. Besides journal entities from Lou you also get Facebook messages, texts,?emails and Instagram posts SO fun! The format made for a quick read and made me l...

    As a recent graduate, post-uni depression has hit me HARD, so I thought I had found the perfect book in this, but nope. Lou wasn't in any way relatable, the family is super rich and spending an extraordinary amount of money in every turn; it's clear that the only reason why she wants t...

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading SMOTHERED; it's laugh out loud funny! After graduating from Columbia University summa cum laude, Lou moves in with her family while searching for a job. If you are looking for some light reading, this is it! I received SMOTHERED for an honest review. ...

    Have you just read a psychological thriller that had you biting your nails and sitting on the edge of your seat? Are you in need of a light-hearted, fun ?beach read?? If so, then Smothered is the book for you! The story begins with an invitation addressed to the family of Eloise La...

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and for that, I am thankful. I can't imagine how furiously annoyed I'd be if I spent the estimated $18.99 on this. By no means is it the worst book I've ever read, but I can't recommend it. Originally marketed as a young-adult crossover n...

    Omg, what an amazing, witty story! I loved how this unemployed, normal adult lives in a world of successful, wealthy, care-free people and still tries to better herself and sets goals. I can see why this is a young adult novel because it shows that even when you are an adult, a lot of ...

    Love, LOVED, L O V E D this book. I honestly couldn't put it down. I don't remember the last time I laughed this much or felt such a genuine sense of happiness while reading anything. I connected to every word --as both a mother and a daughter --and I can only hope I'm one fraction as ...

    I don't know what else to say about "Smothered" other than it was a quick fun read and definitely the perfect thing to read while on vacation. Lou Hansen has just graduated from Columbia University. While looking for a job, she moves back home to California, to live with her family. Lo...

    This was pretty much ?The Princess Diaries? for the new adult crowd. If you were a fan of that series, you?ll probably like this, although be warned that the protagonist is pretty lazy, entitled, and casually racist ??? Lou has just graduated third in her class from Co...

    I received a free copy of this book from Goodreads and I am so glad I did!! I really loved this book. I don't remember the last time I read a book that I actually laughed out loud. It was not only funny but so honest and down to earth. For anyone who has lived with an overbearing mothe...

    Disclaimer- I got this book from a Goodreads giveaway, but that will not affect my opinion on this book whatsoever. Can I just say that I related to this book SO MUCH. Columbia has always been one of my dream colleges, so as soon as I saw the summary for this book, I was so down! A...

    The book is a hybrid of Where'd You Bernadette, Bridget Jone's Diary, and many of those truly YA/middle school books you've read with text bubbles and gossiping (please note this is not a degradation of the story) all set to the backdrop of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills sort of L.A. life....

    I loved this book. Laugh out loud funny - recommend to all looking for an enjoyable read. I know all of my friends will love it too! ...

    Hilarious! There were so many laugh out loud moments. My face hurts from all the smiles. Lou tells the story about moving back to her upper class family home in Los Angeles after college though journal entries, text messages, social media posts, receipts, and other media. She strug...

    *Book received from a Goodreads giveaway* I was in the middle of reading other books when Smothered arrived in my mailbox so I figured it would be one I'd get to eventually. Yet the book drew me in and I read it in less than 24 hours! I laughed out loud so much that my 11 year old son...

    I received the ARC of this book from a goodreads giveaway. I couldn't put it down!!! I haven't read a book in quite some time that I was able to say that about. I can't wait to see what this author puts out next and am happily following her on instagram to see any updates on new books ...

    A wonderful laugh out loud book. Really enjoyed the characters. I won this book through goodreads. ...

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading SMOTHERED; it's laugh out loud funny! After graduating from Columbia University summa cum laude, Lou moves in with her family while searching for a job. If you are looking for some light reading, this is it! I received SMOTHERED for an honest review. ...

    Have you just read a psychological thriller that had you biting your nails and sitting on the edge of your seat? Are you in need of a light-hearted, fun ?beach read?? If so, then Smothered is the book for you! The story begins with an invitation addressed to the family of Eloise La...

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and for that, I am thankful. I can't imagine how furiously annoyed I'd be if I spent the estimated $18.99 on this. By no means is it the worst book I've ever read, but I can't recommend it. Originally marketed as a young-adult crossover n...

    Omg, what an amazing, witty story! I loved how this unemployed, normal adult lives in a world of successful, wealthy, care-free people and still tries to better herself and sets goals. I can see why this is a young adult novel because it shows that even when you are an adult, a lot of ...

    Love, LOVED, L O V E D this book. I honestly couldn't put it down. I don't remember the last time I laughed this much or felt such a genuine sense of happiness while reading anything. I connected to every word --as both a mother and a daughter --and I can only hope I'm one fraction as ...

    I don't know what else to say about "Smothered" other than it was a quick fun read and definitely the perfect thing to read while on vacation. Lou Hansen has just graduated from Columbia University. While looking for a job, she moves back home to California, to live with her family. Lo...

    This was pretty much ?The Princess Diaries? for the new adult crowd. If you were a fan of that series, you?ll probably like this, although be warned that the protagonist is pretty lazy, entitled, and casually racist ??? Lou has just graduated third in her class from Co...

    I received a free copy of this book from Goodreads and I am so glad I did!! I really loved this book. I don't remember the last time I read a book that I actually laughed out loud. It was not only funny but so honest and down to earth. For anyone who has lived with an overbearing mothe...

    The book is a hybrid of Where'd You Bernadette, Bridget Jone's Diary, and many of those truly YA/middle school books you've read with text bubbles and gossiping (please note this is not a degradation of the story) all set to the backdrop of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills sort of L.A. life....

    I loved this book. Laugh out loud funny - recommend to all looking for an enjoyable read. I know all of my friends will love it too! ...

    Hilarious! There were so many laugh out loud moments. My face hurts from all the smiles. Lou tells the story about moving back to her upper class family home in Los Angeles after college though journal entries, text messages, social media posts, receipts, and other media. She strug...
