Nine Perfect Strangers | Liane Moriarty

Pickpick

Nine people arrive for a “wellness” retreat and get something other than what they bargained for. I can see why some folks aren‘t liking this one, but I thought it was a hoot with many winks at the reader from Moriarty. I had a great time with it.

The Mother-in-Law | Sally Hepworth

I expected this book to be about an evil mother-in-law given the title. But really it‘s about family dynamics and relationships, wrapped in a mystery. A weaker pick for me, but I did enjoy it.

Beautiful Bodies | Kimberly Rae Miller

Kim Miller has not only dieted her entire life but worked as a writer for diet and fitness articles. In her memoir, she blends her own story with diet research and good humor. It‘s a good exploration of body dysmorphia/poor self-confidence without ever using those terms. Hopefully the rest of the group enjoys it as well. #LMPBC #memoir

Hooked_on_books @vivastory Thanks! I just started that a few months ago because I needed more space then I realized it was helping me remember the books I had and was particularly excited to read, so I filled all the shelves like that as a reminder to self. 😆 Functional and attractive! 3w

What Rose Forgot | Nevada Barr

Rose awakens in a memory care unit with an early onset dementia diagnosis and feels as though she is incarcerated. Then it becomes clear that things aren‘t what they seem. This is a good mystery with an overall serious tone but some good funny moments. I love Barr‘s Anna Pigeon series and this is just as good.

With our focus on our new climate change hero, this short little tale shows Greta standing up to those ruining the environment and causing climate change. I can only hope the ending comes true for all of us. #Greta #climatechange

Rachel Williams befriended a woman named Anna who presented herself as a wealthy German heiress. Not long thereafter, Rachel found herself betrayed and defrauded by her “friend.” This is a bit of a lurid melodrama in ways, but it‘s an engaging, fascinating story and I couldn‘t look away. I was definitely in the mood for this.

Cinfhen I almost “bought” this on Audible the other day ~ helpful review 😄you gonna try 2mo
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen I‘m definitely going to try it—it‘s sitting next to me right now. The problem is, I‘m feeling pulled toward Recursion. I‘m such a mood reader. We‘ll see what happens! 2mo
Cinfhen You definitely have to be in the mood for Friday Black! If Recursion is calling I‘d listen ❣️😜 2mo

Hyperion | Dan Simmons

So, I'm seriously rethinking the two Simmons books on my TBR, the last two books in the Hyperion series, after reading his tweet completely bashing a 16 yr old girl. The thought of a 72 year old "man" cyber bullying a child just boils my blood. #Magathugs #Magabullies #jerk

Greta is a role model.

We all “know” that Jack the Ripper‘s victims were prostitutes. Only, apparently, most of them weren‘t, according to this well researched book. Alongside descriptions of life in Victorian-era London, Rubenhold humanizes these 5 women and places the focus on their lives and who they each were, rather than on their deaths and killer. A fascinating book and a mirror into how we continue to objectify women.

Anno Dracula | Kim Newman
post image
Mehso-so

Jack the Ripper is terrorizing London, with the twist that Dracula defeated and killed Van Helsing and is now the Prince Consort of England. And vampires live side by side with the “warm.” Great premise and I enjoyed most of it, but I found it overly bloated with characters and unnecessary storylines.

After an emotionally difficult read, I was looking for something lighter, and this fit perfectly! Billed as a Canadian Muslim Pride and Prejudice, it certainly reflects that novel without feeling derivative. I definitely enjoyed this.
