    1. So I dithered about a star rating before deciding on a 3.5 There was a lot that bugged me about this book Considering that it is only 196 pages it got draggy in a lot of places It also didn t help that the book s message shifted than halfway through to a conclusion that did feel right to me, but it came completely out of left field.The main character Lucy Tuttle is a puzzle to me She s almost 30 when this story begins and is knocked for a loop when her Aunt Maren dies in an accident Losing Mare [...]

    2. I got this ebook from NetGalley, it was the first time I d received a book this way and was excited to dig into this book that sounded so intriguing In some ways I really enjoyed this book, but unfortunately, most of the rest of the time was spent hoping I was almost at the end It was interesting, but the main character s struggles with grief just got so monotonous that it got a bit wearing I know that sounds harsh, people grieve in their own time and I know that Its just that I don t feel the a [...]

    5. This was a very enjoyable book with believable, likeable characters and a story that is easy to relate to The story is a thoughtful exploration of scripts people find themselves living out and measuring themselves by, and what happens when the script doesn t fit any I read the first chapter as a short story Irish Drinking Socks distributed for free on Kobo, and I wanted to know what happened next enough to buy the rest of the book I would highly recommend picking up the free short story, to see [...]

    6. This is a beautiful story of one woman s journey towards self discovery, conquering grief and past pain, and healing her inner wounds The tale unfolds slowly, almost poetically, and the ending is refreshingly unconventional While the title and cover suggest that this is along the lines of a cute, chick lit y read, this is not the case The Sock Wars is an intelligent, highly enjoyable work of psychological fiction which will have readers entirely engrossed in the life of the main character, the [...]

    8. I received The Sock Wars after entering a giveaway here on The Sock Wars tells Lucy s story in the aftermath of the unexpected death of her beloved aunt I think most people who have lost a loved one can relate to Lucy s story of being uprooted from their normal life and the confusion of coping with such a sudden, drastic change to their life While I read The Sock Wars, I found myself feeling frustrated with Lucy because she was so clearly not living the life she was really meant to live At the s [...]

    14. This was an easy read and totally unexpected I got this free and just dove in not knowing what to expect It was kind of sad and bittersweet at times But the idea of living your own life and following your heart than doing what others expect of you is quite a revelation that many struggle with Lucy was well written coming from such a difficult childhood to her future It made me sad as I read, but I did like the ending wrapped things up rather nicely

    19. Not everyone can live the same structured life as everyone else, there are some people who can t fit the expectations of all those strangers who think they know better but they judge, after all.Turning their thirties, Lucy thinks she will be able to follow the path everyone has arranged for her, but it s not as simple as it seems and the death of her last relative her aunt Maren changes all.I think this is the first time I read a novel and become attached to a character who is dead since the beg [...]

    23. This is a nice read This is quite well written Lucy was struggling with different emotional issues and decisions I felt the author presented these issues very realistically and didn t flower anything Sometimes in life we have to make difficult decisions that affect others and there really isn t a happy and or win win solution They are just necessary and part of being human.
