Why did I pick this book: I am participating in the blog tour for November Surprise and I wanted to read the companion book.


Did I enjoy this book: It was okay. I wish I would have read it after I read November Surprise or while I was reading November Surprise. You could read each snippet where it would go in November Surprise. It would have made much more sense and I probably would have enjoyed it even more. 

With that being said, I did find it interesting and entertaining. The author was quite creative with how she compared each life event to a politician. There isn’t much else to say about this book except that it is almost as if these were the outtakes from November Surprise – outtakes that could have been left in November Surprise and that would have made it even more complete. 

Would I recommend it: If you read November Surprise, then you should read Campaign Promises. It fills in some gaps.


Will I read it again: I will not. 


About the book – from Goodreads: 
Comedy writer and acclaimed novelist Laurel Osterkamp has written a funny and moving novella about life, love, and politics as seen through the unique lens of Lucy Jones, a quintessential girl-next-door who is obsessed with political campaigns. Liberal, idealistic, and struggling to find her way, Lucy has an easier time believing in causes than she does in herself. But in the midst of analyzing the mistakes made by past political candidates, Lucy attempts to figure out her own choices when it comes to both her private and public life. There’s her high school sweetheart Jack; Monty, Jack’s magnetic older brother; and her politician boyfriend, Drew. Can any of these men offer Lucy a campaign promise to believe in?

Happy reading wherever you are and whenever you get a free chance!!!
