One thought on “All for a Story

  1. Sarah

    Strike two for me and this author This book felt odd, like the first one in the series I didn t connect with the characters at all and I really hated Monica She had some qualities and so hardships that were supposed to endear her to me, but I didn t like her.The author has a lot of talent, It just isn t my style I think I will skip on any future Pittman books.

    Max Moore s uncle died and left him his newspaper, which Max wants to spruce up with stories of virtue and heroism Miss Monica s Bisbaine s column, Monkey Business, is all about the vice and sneakiness of the underworld, and she feels her position at the paper is threatened by his intentions.I found it difficult to muster much sympathy for Monica She had so much attitude, a stirrer and troublemaker all through She was disrespectful of Max s position as boss and full of backchat She put a huge em [...]

    This was a free purchase from before I had read the first story All for a Song I was intrigued by the synopsis of 1920s flapper journalist who writes a gossip column but then has the opportunity to change her flirtatious lifestyle Unfortunately this fell flat for me It was too cliche, too superficial and too rushed at times.

    After fully enjoying All For a Song, I was a bit disappointed with All For a Story.It took me several chapters to figure out the formatting perhaps only a Kindle version issue Once I figured out the formatting, I settled in and started to enjoy Max and Monica s story Max inherited a publication that shares the fringes of society Monica is happily living on the fringes Max bring propriety to the publication and influences Monica s actions.It was a good story and I look forward to continuing this [...]

    This is such a fun series It s fresh and different from the usual Christian fiction I read All for a Story is the second book in Allison Pittman s roaring twenties series It has very little connection to the first book in the series, All for a Song Monica, the heroine in the story is a journalist and a flapper.Max is the sweet,charming hero who is Monica s boss I enjoyed reading how Monica changed and grew through out the story Like some of the other books I ve read by Pittman, the ending felt a [...]

    Um, this lady should never stop writing, first of all.You get lost in her books and there s no way out.This story is a story about a girl who realized that stories could have happily ever after.

    I won a copy from First Reads.Oy We have an oldie book All For A Story is a Christian, Historical Fiction, and New Adult to Adult book But truly, it s not Monica who s a true Christian It s Max Moore All For A Story doesn t give me a thrill like so many other books despite the fact that the ever so thirsty gossip, Monica Brisbane, hangs out in clubs with mobsters and gangsters It s still pretty good considering that I read the entire book, without considering abandoning it Yeah, I have an incred [...]

  8. Emma Reilly

    All for A Story by Allison Pittman has quickly become a favorite for me I have been so excited about this series for so long, and with each book it seems to get better and better Every time I pick up an Allison Pittman book I am amazed at the wild ride I go on She writes with such an elegance and honesty that brings goose bumps to my arms Somehow every emotion fills each page, each word, and before I know it I m carried away on the wings of the story, taken far away, never to return It is a fact [...]

  9. Amanda

    A poor excuse for Christian fiction A terribly disappointing story This book claims to be Religious , Christian fiction , Inspirational It is none of those While the writing itself is decent, the story felt like Christianity was an after thought, something included to get particular people to read it In theory, the book is about trying to make a tabloid a place for inspiration for a good life, but the truth is the novel glamorizes what it claims to condemn In fact, the story would probably be c [...]

  10. Ericka Miller

    I loved the story I loved how she brought the roaring twenties to life and how despite the era of what was going on, you always have God to turn to I only wished the ending didn t end like that I was looking for .

  11. Janet Merrell

    Loved the story I think we all have a little Monica in us that comes out from time to time Max was a delightful hero, and I enjoyed all the minor characters as well Great series

  15. Rambling Readers

    Allison Pittman consistently delivers novels rooted firmly in faith and history I am always excited to delve into her stories and experience the past All for a Story reads like a 1920 s movie, with flappers, speakeasies, dancing, and dialogue that seems completely authentic to the time period Pittman also introduces readers to another product of the 1920s the Anti Flirt Society The incorporation of less well known pieces of history is one of the reasons that I love Allison Pittman s novels She i [...]

    I have not read any of Allison Pittman s books before, so I did not realize until the end this was a sequel of sorts I did however enjoy this book.Monica is a writer for a newspaper and her column is monkey business It is written about her experiences not in specifics, but kind of a code about where she eats, who she is with, different things that happen to her Max is the nephew of the owner of the newspaper He inherits the paper after his uncle passes away unexpectedly This is a love story betw [...]

    Firstly, and as usual, it must be noted that I didn t buy this book Instead, it came to me for free as the result of a Shelf Awareness giveaway Despite that kind consideration, I give my candid opinions in this review Also, it should be noted that I m not a Christian so it may seem a bit odd for me to be reviewing Christian literature Nonetheless, I ll review this book based on its literary merits and ignore any philosophical differences I may have with the genre.On the positive side, the book i [...]

    I ve never read any books by Allison Pittman before this one, and I m not always a huge historical fiction fan, but this book looked intriguing so I decided to give it a shot All For A Story follows Monica Bisbaine She s a modern girl in the Roaring Twenties, and a gossip writer for the newspaper Capitol Chatter When Max Moore, editor in chief Aimee Semple McPherson s magazine, inherits Capitol Chatter from his uncle, he decides to revamp the newspaper with positive stories He receives a lot of [...]

    I think I am going to give up reading this series And possibly books by this author Every summer her books on are the Tyndale house summer reading program And if her books were the only books on the list, I would never read anything else, as I feel her books are on this list just to get people to read them While the writing itself is not bad at all, the storyline, especially in this particular series are just bad I am very surprised that this book is even labeled a Christian novel To me it glamo [...]

  25. Denise Hershberger (100 Pages per Hour)

    This was my second novel by Pittman I have to admit I did NOT enjoy All for a Song but I decided to go ahead and give All for a Story a chance and I m so glad I did I m not sure if I just related with Monica than the characters in the other book or if I enjoyed the story line but either way I really enjoyed this book.I was on newspaper staff in high school and college so I enjoyed reading about a young woman writing a column for a local paper even if it was a gossip column and not hard news It [...]

    I didn t realize this was the second in a series until I had read the book This title does stand alone, though I m guessing I d have a better understanding of Max and just where he is coming from had I read the first one He was editor in chief for Aimee Semple McPherson, or at least that was his title His job was mostly a yes man When his uncle dies, leaving everything to Max, Max takes this opportunity to head to DC and take over the Capitol Chatter and turn it into something than another goss [...]

    Monica the Monkey hides deep behind her flapper, modern day woman facade Speakeasies and classy joints provide a place to shield her from pain, loneliness, and self doubt.Max the Editor hides behind his faith and his strait laced virtues He seeks a place in this world Two orphans, one destination.Era of a new age and new beginnings, luxurious in detail, Allison Pittman brings the reader a story that mimics Christ s patient love for us all.Although rich in detail, at times I was taken away from t [...]

  29. Laura Carter

    I had a hard time deciding between a 3 or 4 star review 4 because I liked the book and I enjoyed the writing style It was a romance without feeling cheesy and predictable But a 3 because there was no major plot line There was no big problem that had to be solved No mystery and intrigue, just a simple story about two completely different people who fell in love I enjoyed the story, but it was lacking an actual plot There s not much else to say about it It was irritating that Max started calling h [...]

    I have now read all of the books in this series, having read this one last The books really don t need to be read in order because there are mostly different characters in each book This one takes the reader into the rowdy side of the 20s Monica is all about having a good time and getting a story for her column Monkey Business She gets to go to the secret type places where booze and sex are frequently in the same setting Allison Pittman doesn t give details but these topics are discussed Monica [...]
