The Best American Short Stories 2017 | Heidi Pitlor, Meg Wolitzer

Mollie is helping me review this short story collection. It was ok, a couple of great stories, a couple of duds and most in between. Glad I read it, even more glad it is off the #TBR pile. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

The book was funny enough but too long and the humor got less funny as I moved through pages. Would make and excellent coffee table or rest room book.

Jane of Lantern Hill | L M Montgomery

I drew a random title from the windowsill pile to break up my Lunar Chronicles reading and was quite happy with this month's #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead was picked. This is a childhood favorite that I hadn't read in decades and I was glad to have the nudge to pick it up for a reread!!

Jane actually holds up pretty well over time. This and The Blue Castle are two of my favorite Montgomery's, and they have some similar themes of a dreary home life ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) at the beginning of the book and the eventual escape to a more independent and fulfilling life. Jane gains confidence as she learns to embrace what she loves. She does seem a bit young to do all the things she does, but her sturdy can-do attitude, strong sense of justice, and delightful sense of humor once again won me over. There are so many fun side characters sketched in just a few perfect sentences as well. As an adult, I wish that ⬇ 12h
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) the ending was a little less abrupt, but you can't have everything!

This is an important and interesting group of essays. They're by famous authors and other famous figures. The essays are mostly about dealing with shame. I highly recommend it.

My book club picked this as our May book 2#. Not that it's less important but 1# is for fun and 2# is to educate ourselves. This month we read The Sentence and this one. I love my local book club.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! And I love the idea of picking two books for club that accomplish two different reading goals - a fun balance!! 12h

#TheThingsWeDoInTheDark #JenniferHillier #BookSpinBingo

Paris Paralta is charged with murder after she finds her celebrity husband dead in the bathtub. Ruby Reyes was charged with murder twenty-five years ago. Reyes knows who Paris really is and she threatens to expose all of Paris‘ secrets. This is a heart-pounding and surprise-filled plot that started out slow but heated up and kept me turning pages until the very end.

EadieB The timeline switches between the past and present. If you love action thrillers then you will enjoy this one. I would like to thank NetGalley and Minotaur Books for a copy for an honest review. 1d

Finished another book this weekend! Woot woot!
This book was definitely a "Proper Romance." I highly enjoyed the growing relationship between Marianne and Philip. How they fall in love is quite sweet. This book took me way longer to read than expected, but I still enjoyed it.
3.5 ⭐️
