Lukewarm pick. Interesting plot but far too much banter, bickering, ruminating, etc. Anyway, it knocks off prompts for a couple reading challenges.
#Booked2019 #nightoriented not just because of the title but also because much of the mischief occurs at night.
#MMD for a book published before I was born. It was probably quite modern at the time...
What to say about Evvie Drake? I kept thinking while reading this how human Evvie is - she‘s flawed and complicated, and there were times I could totally relate to her. The middle of this book is the slowest part. I liked this one. My #Newin2019 for #Booked2019 and my #Newin20192020 for #GrowUp #BBRC .
This was a really weird yet engrossing book. Part is historical accounts of Lincoln and the other is a historical fiction ghost story.
I don't think this could be more #genrebusting

I‘m not the intended audience for this one but it managed to fulfill both the #DiverseMiddleGrade prompt for #Booked2019 AND #Malawi for the #ReadAroundTheWorldChallenge- plus it was available through #KindleUnlimited! I liked the details of daily life in Malawi, there wasn‘t enough there to overcome the more problematic parts of the plot. I expected the heavy-handed Sunday school lessons, but everything with the father made me uncomfortable
The tagged book is a short story published in 1943 that was the basis of the film It‘s A #WonderfulLife. George Pratt is dissatisfied with life, to the point where he feels it would have been better if he had never been born. He has a few #Surprises when he is shown what would have happened if that had been the case

A #twofer post to get me caught up.
There is a #BizarreLoveTriangle in this book when widowed mommy blogger Stephanie makes a new friend Emily & then falls for Emily‘s husband Sean after she goes missing. (There‘s also another crazy ick-ish triangle from Stephanie‘s past too.) All three characters do things in this book that are more than #GroundsForDivorce 🖤 I liked the movie much more than the book due to the casting/acting.
Ah some of these women were so unlikeable! It made me not want to pick up the book sometimes. I liked the second half of the book better than the first. I found Young Ursele and Irene so awful. Veronica was my favorite. I also didn‘t expect the final years to be set during WWII. That was interesting.
