⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

He did it again! This book is even better than his first one.

Just genial, rich of British humour and clever wit.

Relationships and dialogues between the characters are well developed. For me, the plot is not much realistic but it's well put together.

Definitely worth reading it!

Librarybelle I still need to read Thursday Murder Club!! 3mo
Dodi @Librarybelle Yes, I'd highly recommend you begin with Thursday Murder Club first, where there's an introduction to the characters... who you then get to know much more in the second one. 3mo
BooknerdsLife Have this one on my TBR. I've read that this one is better than the first book? 🙂 3mo
Dodi @BooknerdsLife Yes, I loved it more than the first one! Be prepared for lots of fun! 3mo

⭐⭐⭐⭐ For publishing year #2021 I chose this book that here in the UK was on top of many to-read lists last year. It was very engaging and gripping. The topics are mental health issues, women's infertility and motherhood. I liked the author' style of writing so I'll want to read other books written by her. I didn't like the end but I still recommend reading it! #19822022 @Librarybelle

Librarybelle The cover is very intriguing! 3mo

Just finished reading a book published in #1991 and ready to start one written in #2021, 30 years later.

The "wisdom of no escape" was easy to read but I feel I haven't learned much from it. Also, there's too much religion (Buddhism) in it which I think should have been stated on the cover. Overall, it made me feel calm when I was reading it so it's been a pleasant enough read.

Orwell's Roses | Rebecca Solnit

Solnit examines Orwell, his writings, and the influence gardening (especially roses) and nature in general had on his writings. She also takes her examination a step further by generally viewing current and historical politics and situations through the lens of nature and roses. Very interesting read! #19822022 #2021

Maybe I am missing something but all these good words about this author are not really justified in my view: not easy to follow up the story, a lot of things are to be guessed, and not clear to the end. The plot is interesting but writing has some gaps in the narrative. #2021

Well Kristin Hannah managed to bring tears to my eyes again. This was my DAR chapter‘s book club pick and I think it‘s going to be a great discussion. While fiction, I feel like I learned a good deal about the Dust Bowl and the struggles they faced #booked2022 #weathertermintitle #19822022 #2021 Plus this was my one physical book I wanted to complete this month for #bfc2022

wanderinglynn Yay! 🙌🏻 6mo

The only thing that worked for me in this book is writing - at the level of sentences … everything else is too predictable and too pathetic.
