The Favorite Sister Reviews
I know, I know. This is a very popular book with some off the charts reviews. It's just not for me. I tried so many times to read THE FAVORITE SISTER. I've had the galley for ages and that wasn't working for me. Then, I downloaded the audiobook and gave it another serious try. Nope. Not happening.
I think I may have aged out of the targeted demographic for Jessica Knoll books. My 20-year old daughter and I took a long road trip a couple of years ago and listened to Knoll's THE LUCKIEST ...more
Wicked and deliciously scandalous
I am the first to admit that I love to read and watch books and shows that contain catty drama, gossip, and backstabbing. This one did not disappoint. This book was in the same vein as the Real Housewives franchise (Carol and I did a buddy read together, and she made this astute observation). I couldn't agree with her more.
This book was about a reality show called, "The Goal Diggers." The show's aim was to showcase high-powered women carving out a name for themse ...more
Eek. This is no heartwarming Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, that's for darn sure. The Favorite Sister contains some of the bloodiest, mud-slinging, bitch slapping, backstabbing, and savage cast of female characters that aren't on your television(or Netflix)-yet! This book finds itself as a contender for most difficult to enjoy
The backdrop of the story swirls around the world of reality television and is narrated by three of the characters-Brett, her bestie Stephanie, and Brett's sister, Ke ...more
3.5 Stars* (rounded up)
Campy and purely entertaining
A book about a reality TV show involving women? You have to know going in that it is going to involve catty, powerful women who will do anything to get ahead. Imagine a “Real Housewives” scenario.
Five successful women are about to star in another season of “Goal Diggers.” Let the games begin! Brett, is the uber successful owner of a spin studio, who everyone on earth seems to love, except for her cast mates, that is. It kind of makes you ...more
So, I feel like this book will be on a spectrum.... you really will love it or not at all. I have seen many positive reviews for this one on goodreads but I'm on the other side of the spectrum.
This was my first read by Jessica Knoll and was very excited to experience her writing! We can't all love the same books and unfortunately this one didn't work for me at all.
The plot sounded awesome... 5 women on a reality show called the Gold Diggers in New York City. What more can you ask for? A little ...more
Reality TV, the latest craze. We think we are getting a peephole view of the lives of strangers, but what happens when the cameras stop rolling for five successful, competitive women is nothing short of deadly. You think the players on those reality shows can be brutal?
THE FAVORITE SISTER by Jessica Knoll is a look at the rest of the story when egos, pride, jealousy and insecurity erupt and family rivalries boil over. Told from several points of view and alternating between past and present, thi ...more
I did not enjoy reading The Favorite Sister, but I respect its message.
The Favorite Sister is about 5 women who continuously tear each other down on a reality TV show (a la The Real Housewives) that “espouses” feminism. These women do whatever it takes to stay relevant and remain in the spotlight. Filled with hideous characters who only care about themselves, this was not an easy book for me to read.
Stephanie, Brett, Kelly, Lauren, and Jen are the stars of Goal Diggers--a reality show that s ...more
It is safe to say that this was not my favorite book. The premise of this book sounded very interesting and I read a lot of positive reviews, so I thought this book must be better than Luckiest Girl Alive, also by this Author. I dnf LGA. I just could not get into that book but decided to throw caution to the wind and attempt to read this Author's work again due to the high reviews of The Favorite sister.
Well, we all can't like the same book. What works for some might not work for others. Was it ...more
