Review: Love and Other Subjects by Kathleen Shoop


For every woman who wonders if she chose the right career Carolyn Jenkins strives for two things–to be the greatest teacher ever and to find true love. She’s as skilled at both as an infant trying to eat with a fork. Carolyn’s suburban upbringing and genuine compassion for people who don’t fit effortlessly into society are no match for weapon-wielding, struggling students, drug-using colleagues, and a wicked principal.

Meanwhile, her budding relationship with a mystery man is thwarted by his gaggle of eccentric sisters. Carolyn depends on her friends to get her through the hard times, but with poverty-stricken children at her feet and a wealthy man at her side, she must define who she is.

The reality of life after college can be daunting, the road to full-fledged adulthood long and unscripted. Can Carolyn take control and craft the existence she always wanted?

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

This book is the kind that you want the world to stop so you can read it all in one sitting. Of course I’m not magical and that didn’t happen so it took me a few days to read it.

Carolyn is the type of teacher we need more of in this world. She cares deeply for her students and wants them to succeed. The principal of her school tells her she has to teach them in a text book cookie cutter way. The principal is a piece of work and tries to belittle her every step of the way.

In her personal life she meets a stranger she falls for. It’s true that you can’t choose your family in this situation. Will love prevail no matter what?

This book is the type that makes you think about it long after you are done reading it. I hope the author does a follow up of it.

This is the second book I’ve read from this amazing author. I’ve loved each and everyone!
