Queenie | Candice Carty-Williams

Finally got around to reading this one! This is what I‘d hoped Luster would be. Yes, Queenie is a black millennial whose life is a train wreck, but shining light on her mental health struggles made it more relatable. A mental breakdown, family views on therapy, career woes, lack of motivation, racism, unhealthy relationships with sex, mother-daughter relationship dysfunction and more are all explored in this ultimately touching novel. #BOTM #pop22

4⭐️ This one has been sitting on my TBR since I picked it for my #BOTM back in 2020 (gasp!). I‘m so glad I finally got to it because this is an excellent book. Following the decades-long consequences of the decisions that twins Stella and Desiree Vignes make upon escaping their tiny Louisiana town, The Vanishing Half depicts the diverging paths of the twins and their daughters from 1950s Louisiana to 1980s Los Angeles.

Kimberlone I thought the writing was really beautiful, but my one criticism is that I was somewhat underwhelmed by the ending. (edited) 2d

Thoughts on this #BOTM clue being Thistlefoot?

mdm139 I was also thinking Sign Here for the devil‘s trident 7d
swishandflick @mdm139 Another good guess! 7d
JamieArc It kind of seems like what else could it be? 7d

This was exactly what I wanted: a fun, nostalgic novel about the sisterly bonds of friendship with a happy ending. Have to suspend your disbelief a bit though.

Melissa, Tara, Priya, and Suki were BFFs in the class of 1997. They all had most likelys in the yearbook, but only Suki became hers. As the other three gather for their 25th reunion, they make a pact to live up to them like Suki has, but it turns out Suki‘s life isn‘t so charmed. #botm

I‘ve seen some reviews that said this book didn‘t hold the reader‘s interest, and I struggled with reading a sample of the first chapter myself, but so far I‘m glad I tried out the audio version. I‘m not very far in, but I find the commentary on both fascism in Italy and early Hollywood censorship pretty intriguing! #BOTM

🎧📚 from the author of The Love Hypothesis another women in STEM romance. I loved it! Near 5 star!

The smart woman being so relationship dumb … grated on me by the end but I understood & forgave.

If you enjoyed The Love Hypothesis you‘re sure to love this book!

To summarize … students get labeled enemies in college … years later the miscommunication becomes glaringly evident.

FUN read, great narration! Recommend Hardcover #BOTM

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️3/4

Other Birds: A Novel | Sarah Addison Allen

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

This was such a lovely read! I adored the vibrant, complex characters and wanted to join their “other bird” found flock. With the island setting and magical elements, it‘s the perfect book to read in the transition from summer to fall; gently reminding us to let go of one season in order to fully embrace what the next chapter brings. #BOTM
