Book 9 review: 🖤🖤🖤/5🖤
Other People's Houses by Abbi Waxman
Another great thing about the book of the month club is you sometimes get to read books before they are even on bookshelves, that was the case with this book! This one is available everywhere on April 3! 
Do you guys remember the show Desperate Housewives? This book reminds me of that show so much! It is the story of 4 families in a suburban neighborhood and the secrets that go on in each house. The story is told from the point of view of carpool mom, Frances Bloom. She is witness to an extramarital affair and that gets the story rolling...from there we get a glimpse of parenting, love, lies, illness and much more. Abbi Waxman takes the sometimes mundane life of housewives and makes it anything but boring! This is a cheeky, light read...a perfect book to read after my last spooky read. My only complaint was I felt like the ending was a bit rushed and abrupt, I would have liked to seen more story after the infamous surprise birthday!
