Devotion Reviews

    Devotion is this summer's Social Creature, a propulsive 'poor girl meets rich girl' story set in Manhattan, chronicling the mutually destructive relationship between two young women, Elle and Lonnie. Elle is hired as a nanny for Lonnie's infant son, and soon her resentment toward her employer turns ...

    I'll be honest and say that toxic female friendships are a guilty pleasure of mine in books. To see how nasty one woman can be to another all while under the guise of friendship in an effort to upstage or usurp the other is like book crack. I can't get enough.

    Perhaps I somehow overlooked it, but this novel seems to be missing a point. Devotion appears to be a story about absolutely nothing. Maybe it's a character study of female relationships, but honestly, even that seems a stretch. What it is, fellow readers, is a book full of plot holes, story lines...
  • Jenny (Reading Envy)
    This is a hard book to review. The cover is cool and the author is from a small town not far from where I grew up so I want to be supportive! And for most of the book, I was pretty engaged with the characters, as unlikable as they were. But the ending was so disappointing that it tarnishes the exper...
