Kaceey’s Review:

Well….. I’m really at a loss for words. 😬

This was one of the strangest, most bizarre books I have ever read! Like ever!😂

Did I enjoy it…. Umm…yes…sort of.

Did I hate it…. Well yes, that too!

Did it leave me speechless…absolutely!

Sophia is living her best life. 

She couldn’t be happier. She lives in the most exclusive neighborhood. And her husband is is everything she dreamed of. She feels she was made for him.  

But hey does everyone keep asking her if she is happy? Careful how you answer that question Sophia! 

Do I recommend this book? 


A super-fast buddy read with Susanne!

Thank you to NetGalley and Macmillan Tor/Forge

Susanne’s Review:

Well, that was Wild!

Comfort Me with Apples might just be the Weirdest, Wildest, Strangest Book I have ever read.  

Engaging, Interesting, and Wholly Captivating, this is one storyline that is wholly new, refreshing, and to be frank, eye-popping!

At first, I wasn’t even sure what I was reading and once it all came to light, well, my first reaction was WTF!  

Yep, you heard me right, I thought, WTF is this?!  

Sophia is married and living in Arcadia Gardens with her husband.  Everything is perfectly perfect.  Why wouldn’t it be?  Her husband is away all of the time for work and they miss each other a lot, but their lives and their love for each other is perfect.  

Sophia however questions things from time to time.  Not that she questions things aloud, she wouldn’t dare!  Such things are not allowed.  

This sounds kind of like The Stepford Wives doesn’t it?  What I can tell you is that the premise is nothing like it.  It is in fact, freaking cuckoo crazy and if it’s on your tbr, you’re in for a wild ride.

This was a buddy read with Kaceey that left us both reeling.

Kudos to Catherynne M. Valente for coming up with something so utterly refreshing. You definitely beat all.

Thank you to Macmillan-Tor/Forge and NetGalley for the arc.
