      I don't believe in reviewing my own book, but I thought I'd share what my mom said since she doesn't have a account.My mom's not a reader, but of course she hunkers down for her daughter. She always raves, but this was the first time I felt I got a real response out of her. She texted me the other day to say she'd finished the book and was crying her eyes out over it. She asked if I meant for it to be that emotional. I told her honestly I hadn't. At least I hadn't expected it to make anyone cry [...]

      Although it took me a while to get into this book, I liked it so much more than I originally thought I would. When I began reading this book, I figured that Triss was just an annoying, immature character with no likable qualities, but I was wrong. Although Triss's tendency of choosing men over Hailey was annoying, Triss was a nice person and never meant to intentionally hurt Hailey. For the most part, I liked Triss because she had a fun, carefree personality, and I liked Hailey because she still [...]

      Poorly written and just unpleasant; I couldn't get past the first chapter. This writer does not understand "show, don't tell". Her writing is very blatantly expository and "telly". The first few pages alone just beat you over the head with the fact that the two main characters are best friends. "Triss smiled at her friend", "Hailey replied to her friend", "Triss said X to her friend". I get it, they're friends, you don't need to remind me in every paragraph! And while some of the backstory prese [...]

      I like this novel and its characters. The dialogue was good and believable, as well as the characters and the story. I wish I could give it five stars, but I can't because of several noticeable formatting errors. I am a writer myself and understand that a few mistakes can get past the author, but some of these errors should have been corrected.

      This light read kept my interest and was perfect for my plane ride. The time jumps kept things interesting but weren't confusing. Each snippet was like a memory of their friendship so the book felt like a collection of short stories that have the same characters.Typically if there are only a few typos I can overlook them. However, I ended up knocking the book down a star because there were just too many. The spelling (like 'steeling' for 'stealing' or 'infront' as one word) or wrong word (like ' [...]

      While I'm like neither Hailey nor Triss, I did remain close with a childhood friend until we were about 30. We're not friends anymore and Alex's story of friends trying to survive a road trip brought back - in a visceral way -- why we had to go our separate ways. In fact, reading Girls Like Us was cathartic because it is so real. I binge-listened to this story at the beach on Memorial Day Weekend and felt as if I was trapped in the black Mustang, or at raucous backyard barbecues or in motel room [...]

      This story was an amazing tale of friendship. The author took us the the journey of their friendship and the reasons why they both needed each other. I related to this book so much because I thought I had a friendship that could last the end of time, but like these two friends, you can't ever be guaranteed that.

      I liked Short Shorts; my only complaint is that it was too short! Hence the name, huh? This 100-pg. book of shorts takes the reader through a friendship between two girlsad my full review here: forumsinebookclub/view
