What Would You Put on Your Life List?

Thank you to Librarything and Random House for sending me two copies of The LifeList by Lori Nelson Spielman.  I have two copies to giveaway.


Brett is mourning the death of her mother, her boss, and confidante.  She barely makes it through the funeral. The reading of the will is the following day.  Brett sees herself as the new president of Bohlinger Cosmetics which her mother founded.  When the will is actually read Brett does not get the job but gets something else instead.  A Life List that she wrote when she was fourteen years old with goals.   These goals must be completed in order to get her inheritance.  Will Brett follow through?  How will her life change because of these goals?

My Thoughts:

An interesting story by author Lori Nelson Spielman.  Half the fun when covering a topic such as this is what ends up being on the Life List.  Is there any outlandish goals? Or are they simple and easy to complete?  The author does a great job of creating complexity in the plot to keep reader guessing.  Will Brett be able to complete the task or not?

The only part that wasn’t my favorite is the fact that I read a novel like this before.  In other words the plot is not new to me.   The descriptions and the tone of this story create a setting that you are ready imagine yourself part of.   

The novel is still a good read and worth picking up!

  1. One goal would be to go back to school to student teach in order to get a teaching certification! Which I might do once my daughter is in school full time. :)
