Book Review and Giveaway- the Street Lawyer

the Street LawyerI won a free copy of The Street Lawyer by John Grisham in a giveaway from The Dysfunctional Writer. Thanks, Brandy! I was super excited to win a free book, and even happier when it arrived. In the spirit of free books and minimalism (passing on what I no longer need), I am going to send this book to one lucky reader (details at the end, see how I try to make you keep reading my babble?). It’s going to be like the sisterhood of the traveling book!

I read this book in two days. I’m a fast reader anyway, but I couldn’t put this down. I love John Grisham! I haven’t gotten to read much with the puppy and work, and it was so nice to get caught up in a book. Everyone needs to do this! I hadn’t read a paper book in months.

Anyway, on to my review. This is going to be short, because I don’t want to give any spoilers. Sometimes it takes me a chapter to get into a book, but I was so drawn into this by the second page. I didn’t read the book jacket, so I had no idea what was coming. This book is a bit of a heart breaker because it deals a lot with homelessness and people that are doing their best to help others. It’s a quick read, but it really stuck with me. It made me want to do more to make a difference, which was not at all what I was expecting from a John Grisham book. This one is a little different, but I think it’s my favorite one yet. It is definitely worth buying, or at least checking out at the library.

What about y’all, do you like to read suspense novels? I’m using Rafflecopter to do this giveaway, since I’ve never done one before. You can get entries by leaving a comment, tweeting, or following me on twitter. Let me know if you like the Rafflecopter method or think it is dumb πŸ™‚ You should also know, this book doesn’t look brand new. A child in Brandy’s life blessed it with some artwork, so it has a little bit of soul!

  2. Sounds fun! I cannot believe you haven’t read a book in that long! It seems the only books I’m able to read are the ones that people lend me. Gone girl was the last one thanks to Nancy!

    I go to the library every week with the kids but can’t ever go upstairs to the adult section with them in tow. What I need to do is reserve some ahead of time. Just don’t ever think of it!

    • I’ve just been so busy and tired. But also I have been reading books on my iPad, so I have read a few πŸ™‚ Definitely reserve them ahead of time, that’s what I always do! It’s so easy that way, plus it’s the only way to get to trendy books. I loved Gone Girl, but hated the ending.

  3. I picked that one up at my local library book sale. It’s a good read. It’s realistic fiction and deals with many things happening with the underprivileged today. What a great give away item and way to stay a minimalist. I love the idea of a traveling book- your winner will BE ENTERTAINED AND EDUCATED.

  7. What a great idea! I tried to do a travelling bear once… Not sure if it is still traveling, or if it got lost?..
