  1. Misty Baker

    When I was in high school I spent a pretty significant amount of time in the library Skipping class Sorry Mom I never read while in the library Lord forbid instead I people watched More specifically I watched Ms Ash, our Librarian Every day, while I sat in the corner trying to concoct some ridiculous plan to get out of history class which was taught by Satan she sat, nose in book, Kleenex in hand.One day, while she was knee deep in snot and splotchy faced I braved the harsh realities of floresce [...]

    A decent memoir An interesting story, especially since I lived on Galveston Island when Hurricane Ike hit We evacuated and couldn t return for two weeks When we did get home, we didn t have electricity for a few days, and gas wasn t turned back on for over a week The Red Cross trucks were a life saver We really appreciated the volunteers who came down and helped out My only problem with this memoir was that she kept jumping around in time and it was hard to follow Other than that, it was well wr [...]

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review As far as memoirs go, I haven t had much luck I think for the most part, they stink Most of the time you get ankle deep into a memoir a realize that you are being soap boxed Every other sentence the author is sharing a key to happiness their key, by the way and they are telling you how to live your life It is a tough balance to tell your story AND share how the experience helped to shape the remainder of your life And after reading [...]

    I did enjoy the overall story and it was written in a way that I was kept interested, but I had two issues with this memoir I was initially confused because the author jumps around in time, and it caused me to misunderstand some of her relationships I started out thinking she didn t like her mother but then her mother is living with her and she s dealing with her death as if their relationship was fine None of that made sense until closer to the end I also assumed yes, we shouldn t assume that s [...]

    This quirky little memoir had me laughin and noddin all the way through Loved the set up with chapters that matched a drive somewherembolic I think for Jonna looking for answers, moving and moving thinking a different location could would help I ve been there girl Many women have The self effacing humor works, the vivid characters, sense of place timel good It is a quick and enjoyable read I would recommend to any woman who has ever felt lost, unappreciated, taken advantage ofyou know what I mea [...]

    Jonna Ivin kept me sitting on the edge of my chair than half the night with her memoir, Will Love for Crumbs I don t recall the last memoir I read that had such tension The first suspense filled pages incited intense curiosity Fortunately she soon doubled back and began filling in the blanks It didn t take long to return to suspense mode as she headed for Beaumont, Texas with a Red Cross hurricane relief team It was there that she met Chris, the man of her dreams, or so she devoutly hoped and h [...]

    I have read memoirs of celebrities and enjoyed many of them I attribute this to two principle factors the subject s celebrity has made them of interest to me before I pick up the book and, two, most of them are ghostwritten by someone with an ear for prose The first of these makes for good storytelling, the second makes for good writing, in most cases.I was skeptical when I approached Jonna Ivins s memoir, Will Love 4 Crumbs I wondered just how interesting the life of an everywoman could be, giv [...]

    Second part, please That s what I d say to Jonna Ivin if she was standing in front of me I know I wouldn t be able to ask her about what has become of Chris She won t have an answer if she s anything like me Out of sight, out of mind Sort of I know that you never manage to completely forget about those terrorists in your past They seem to have a great knack for creeping into your subconscious just when you think you ve evicted them once and for all Jonna Ivin is not a famous celebrity She is not [...]

    This book was ok The memoir of Jonna Ivin meeting and falling in love with someone who wasn t who she thought he was was interesting to a point I didn t like the way the book went back and forth through time It made the ending feel very confusing and abrupt, which is why I only gave 3 stars What I did like about the book was the honesty in which Jonna explains how she got into such a terrible relationship However, I felt like she was making so many excuses for why she stayed in the relationship [...]

    First off Thank you for the free copy of the book in exchange for a review.Will Love For Crumbs really drew me in from the first pages It was different then the other memories I have read in the past and that is a good thing because I did not want to put this one down If I had, had the time I would have read this without putting it down You get a glimpse into Jonna s life and her story while she was with a very messed up man No he never hit her but he did some horrible things to her and already [...]

    I m one of those readers who zeros in on a good book and gets back to it every spare moment to see what happens next I can say without hesitation that is what happened with Will Love For Crumbs The author kept me constantly engaged in her thoughts and actions If you are looking for a memoir that will also make you count your own blessings, this is it I will definitely recommend to family and friends who don t mind curse words.JoanAuthor of Broken Pottery

  12. Terry

    Quick read This book hit home for me as she described every man I ve ever had a long term relationship with While it is tempting to blame others, it boils down to why am I willing to settle for bad behavior, or as the title says, love for crumbs.

  13. Kate

    Initially I was intrigued by this story that ultimately is about the consequences of ignoring your intuition The writer has rough talent and a way with dark humor Yet the book suffers because it reads like a first draft.

  14. Cece Baker

    This book was absolutly amazing Once i picked this book up I did not put it down Literally I read it all through the night and finished it early this morning Give it a try

  15. Julia Legian

    I admire the author s honesty and found the book an interesting read It s a bit rough and needs editing but it s not all that bad.

  16. Angie McCullagh

    What a rollicking read Not since The Glass Castle have I found a book where I had to sneak in a few pages every time I passed my Kindle Nicely done

  17. Shannon

    I picked this up a few years ago when it was free on Kindle The synopsis sounded interesting, and it had a ton of good reviews I never got around too it, and I probably wouldn t have were it not for the reading challenge I m working my way through The prompt was to read a book about a difficult topic, so I thought this would be a perfect fit This is a tale about emotional abuse, a traumatic childhood, dysfunctional relationships, addiction, her strange relationship with God, and poor decision ma [...]

  18. John

    OkayJoanna Ivin s memoir on her life is filled sadness and sometimes a little humor Fatter reading this book, pause, and be thankful for what you have.

  19. Darian Wilk

    Will Love For Crumbs is a memoir, about Jonna s relationship with what she thought was the man of her dreams, Chris Jonna, is what I would call a drifter She floats from here to there, job to job, place to place, much like her alcoholic mother did Again without a job, nothing tying her down, she joins the Red Cross to help with the hurricane Ike relief Where she meets Chris Chris is a man s man, the kind any woman has dreamed about at some point in her life He s a southern boy, with that sweet, [...]

  20. Angie

    Pretty well written , candid and held my interest Jumps around in time which was a little confusing at times I expected about the author s relationship with her mother.

  21. Pamela Clark

    I just finished reading Jonna Ivin s latest book Will Love for Crumbs d I am at a loss of which direction I should go Once you get to know me this will make you smile, trust me So please bear with me When at a crossroad and faced with a dilemma, I have learned to go with my instincts First, I would like to say, I liked the book, but then I need to add I didn t like the book As a woman, as I am sure with the rest of the gals that have read the book, we were drawn to the title by the fact most of [...]

  22. Erin

    I am friends with Ms Ivin here on and she emailed me her book when I asked After reading it, I cannot wait to read what else she comes out with, simply for her writing.This was a very quick read It is only 198 pages ebook version and is very fast paced The best thing about the entire book is Ivin s writing Her wit and humor through everything is what made the book easy to read She tells her story in a very straight forward and candid way She is a very good writer I laughed out loud at times and [...]

  23. Jacqui

    Will Love for Crumbs Over all I enjoyed the book In the beginning after Jonni left I thought she went to California and we were going from there, it took a minute to realize that this was the actual beginning of it all I think a little clarification would help when we go from the story to the present escape My biggest thing spelling, there were a few spelling or misused words not many not too distracting The story line was good the title matches the story very well I wish we could feel of what [...]

  24. Bernadette Walsh

    Twenty pages in I wanted to put the book down It was choppy, the flashbacks were confusing and I couldn t get a real feel for the character Then Jonna decides to join the Red Cross and help in a hurricane relief effort, and meets hot ex Special Forces Chris and then this story just TAKES OFF So my recommendation is for readers to give the book time The writing style along with the pacing improves radically.Jonna will take you on absorbing, compelling, if disturbing, ride Jonna effectively brings [...]

  25. Nicola

    This was going to be a 4, or even a 4.5, until I read the last few pages of this memoir Despite some confusion as to the timeline, and who Adam was, I was truly drawn into the story of Jonna and Chris how she continued to believe everything he said despite her inner self doubts The life of Jonna Ivin was captivating and I wanted to keep reading, yet knock some sense into her as well I needed to remind myself that she was recalling these things, and saw things differently in hindsight naturally H [...]

  26. Angie ~aka Reading Machine~

    Jonna Ivin is a young woman trying to live her She finds herself drifting thru life while moving from place to place She doesn t see that she s making bad choices Yet she doesn t see how to make it better Jonna is close to her sister Jodi but doesn t understand her relationship with Chris Chris and Jonna have been to together four months when they move to Abbeville to help restore Jodi and Jenn s house there Things are going great for awhile until Chris starts spending money they really don t ha [...]

  27. Rhonda Rae Baker

    I could not put this memoir down From the first page, I was hooked and had to continue reading until I found out what happened With humor and steel nerve, Jonna shared with me a story that had so many similarities with some of my experiences that I found myself cussing right along with her If you want to read something that is real life and are not afraid to consider your own shadow, check this out Expressively on the mark for me and quite the ride I found myself encouraged and ready to come out [...]

  28. Amanda

    An interesting memoir, so for being the story of an every day woman It certainly held my attention The real strength is in illustrating just how easy it can be for a person, particularly one with already damaged self esteem, to let another lull them into thinking an unacceptable situation is simply just how things are supposed to be Even when things have obviously spiraled out of control, she has lost so much of herself that she somehow keeps shouldering the blame.Unfortunately, I found it hard [...]
