“You f*** with one Brennan, you f*** with six Brennans.”
📚 PUB DAY BOOK REVIEW 📚
Title: We Are the Brennans
Author: Tracey Lange
Publisher: Celadon Books
Genre: Domestic Fiction
We Are the Brennans explores the power of shame, love, and being torn apart by secrets. It’s a book about a tight knit Irish Catholic family and their drama. Lately, I can’t get enough books about family drama and that are character driven. I loved this one!
Sunday Brennan has lived in Los Angelos the past five years. She left her family neighborhood in New York with little explanation. When she wakes up bruised and battered from a drunk driving accident, she swallows her pride and goes home with her older brother, Denny, to the rest of the family.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 I freaking loved the Brennan family! Gah! Who doesn’t want to be aport of big close knit family!? I loved the authors writing and the way the chapters seamlessly transitioned from person to person. My only complaint? The book is under 300 pages and I wanted more!
