Domestic Violets | Matthew Norman
post image
Pickpick

I absolutely love everything this man writes! Although a slightly unrealistic and silly family drama, in 'Domestic Violets' Matthew Norman has created a wonderfully complex family of quirky, imperfect, flawed and totally lovable characters. His writing is fluid and funny, amazingly relatable and the story of the Violet family is uplifting and heartwarming. An absolute must read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Booked2020 #covercrush #LitsyAtoZ #abecedarianTBR #D

Loved it! Made me laugh, be frustrated with Belle, and it actually made me tear up towards the ends. I enjoyed that Donnelly stayed true to the characters‘ personalities. You can also see this happening, Belle getting lost in a book. I wish I knew what else happened after the story ends. 😔 it was still a good story and I read most of it yesterd and today.

Enjoyed it. It was a quick read that was captivating. I now want to know more about her people, the khoush, the Meduse, what an astrolabe really is, and everything else about this worlds. But that‘s the thing with novellas, they are short and to the point. 😔

Alliterati Then you'll have to read the rest of the trilogy! I picked up my copy last year at an event where the author was speaking, and I keep forgetting my copy is three books in one! I really need to read it. ;] 20h
TheBookAddict @Alliterati I do! I saw that it was a series when I looked for the title to review it. 18h
Alliterati Oh good! Wouldn't want you to miss out on the rest of the story. =] 18h
TheBookAddict @Alliterati 😊 thanks, I‘ll have to check the library. 18h

I really enjoyed the stories from Burroughs‘ childhood but the last few were not for me and quite difficult to read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Booked2020 #bookshowingahatorheadcovering #LitsyAtoZ #abecedarianTBR #Y

4thhouseontheleft I haven't read anything of his since Running With Scissors years ago, his books aren't really for me either. But at least you checked off a prompt! 3d
Cinfhen Exactly what @4thhouseontheleft 🤪NOT a fan of Burroughs, but we all can‘t like the same books! 3d
BarbaraTheBibliophage I haven‘t tried any of his work ... but that cover image! 😱 🎅🏻 3d

Finally sat down and tried to get myself organized so I won‘t be scrambling last minute on these challenges. I‘m trying to use my journal more.

The Bride Test | Helen Hoang

Oh my, I couldn‘t stop reading it once I started and I usually don‘t read romance. I loved the diverse characters. It‘s about a Vietnamese country girl who just wants to make a better life for her family and an autistic Vietnamese-American guy who thinks he can‘t feel/experience emotions. They‘ve both been hurt emotionally, in different ways, so they both feel an aversion to relationships. Nevertheless they must live together for a whole summer.

TheBookAddict It made me laugh and hurt for the characters. I loved it, it was a fun read. I‘m glad I gave it a chance. #YesiReads #diversecharacters #diverseauthors #AbecedarianTBR #LitsyAtoZ2020 #H @BookishMarginalia (edited) 5d

“You kissed a woman if you wanted to date her and have a relationship, if you wanted to love and be loved in return, if you could love. If you kissed a woman when you couldn‘t deliver on the rest, you were an asshole. It was better to jack off in the shower.”

My first read in 2020 was short and sexy romance. It was great and I liked it. Interesting how they started their relationship. I will read more books by Justine Elvira.
It is #free on #amazon
