Book Review: Rebel with a Donut

 SO sorry for not posting in FOREVER. I've been kind of busy and a little forgetful :)

Anyways, here's my latest book review: Rebel with a Donut by Chrissy Q Martin.

"Five teenagers and four senior citizens together in a retirement community. What could go wrong?

A contemporary Golden Girls meets The Breakfast ClubRebel with a Donut is a laugh-out-loud story about forging real friendships, breaking habits, discovering yourself, and finding your favorite donut."

"The characters are engaging and the plot isn't totally easy to guess" -Five star Amazon review

So. I'm getting back to it. Pardon me if this review doesn't measure up to my past ones.

First things first: this book is a great summer binge-read. It's best read huddled under the covers on those nights that are too hot to sleep (not exactly my own words, but I agree with whoever said them.) While Rebel with a Donut is the first book in a three-book series, you could just as easily read it without following through (but I do recommend finishing the series!).
I'm not typically a fan of sweet romances, and I did skip most of the romantic parts of this book, but overall it was a great read. It was a very clean book, with minimal mild swearing and just a few mentions of addiction.
The main character seems to actually be me, so it wasn't too hard for me to connect to the book. The premise of the book is that the main character goes to a retirement community to visit her grandma (and break her habit of following rules). Honestly, the most likeable characters were the grandmas. I don't want to spoil the book, though, so I won't say any more! If you're already interested, you should definitely read the book right now. You can find it here.
A basic conclusion of both my review and the book: the characters are real and relatable, the plot is simple but effective and oftentimes unexpected, and the turnout of the book wraps the whole story up in a neat little bow (even though there are more books that follow! You can find the second one here and the third one here.)

Thanks for reading! Hopefully you'll read the book now. I loved it, and I'm sure you will too! (If it's up your alley.)
