"The Hopefuls" by Jennifer Close

I was super excited to read The Hopefuls because it’s all about life in Washington, D.C. I live about 70 miles northwest of D.C., or “over the mountain,” as us Shenandoah Valley folks call it, so I was looking forward to reading something about a city with which I’m somewhat familiar. 550 more words

Girls in White Dresses: Jennifer Close

Rating:  1/2

I have to say, this book just wasn’t for me. I’ve seen Girls in White Dresses on so many lists describing books you should read in your twenties, books that have awesome female friendships, and other “books-to-read” lists. 496 more words

The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close

I am not entirely sure why I read this book? It was recommended somewhere, probably on Vulture, and something about the description made me add it to my list of library requests? 243 more words



People who have made a more hopeless mess of their lives than the two couples in Jennifer Close’s novel, The Hopefuls, would be difficult to find.  145 more words
