Book Review: Family Reunion by Kelsey Bryant

I haven’t done a book review in a good long while, so here’s one! :)

Family Reunion was one of those books that kept popping up on numerous blogs. Finally, I decided that a change of pace might be nice, so I got the book. At first glance, I didn’t expect much, but as I read on, the little treasure that this book is came to light.

 

Plot/Storyline: 4/5

Though this is far from an action-packed adventure, the message of this book is so absolutely invaluable. It packs a punch, about something every person struggles with at one point in time or another; being kind to those we don’t like.

 

Characters: 5/5

The characters were likable, except for those who weren’t supposed to be so.

 

Writing: 5/5

Though I felt that some trimming of excess words and sentences wouldn’t be amiss, Bryant is a talented writer. I look forward to seeing her skill develop and grow.

 

Dialogue: 5/5

Very nicely done.

 

Want-to-read-ability: 3/5

There were some parts that truly seemed to drag by. Unlike some, this book wasn’t in my hands at every spare moment, though I looked forward to when I could sit down and read a few chapters. I’m excited to read the next book in the series.
