Love Anthony | Lisa Genova

This was my first time reading anything by Lisa Genova, and honestly, I was hoping for better. I was intrigued at first and found the chapters from the autistic boy‘s perspective to be really insightful, but I think the weirdly contrived spiritualism that ties the story and the main characters together kind of through a wrench into my enjoyment. I‘ll definitely try another by this author, but this one just didn‘t quite work for me.

The Floating Feldmans | Elyssa Friedland

Multiple generations of a family, each with their own secrets, go on a cruise together. The tension eventually boils over when everyone‘s secrets are revealed. Not a weighty book, but a fun palette cleanser with some amusing spots that was just what I was looking for.

JennyM Ooo...this sounds good. #stacking!!! 24h
Cinfhen Did you read this or listen to audio?? I recently read and thought it was pretty entertaining ~ it dragged a tiny bit and wrapped up too quickly but still a very enjoyable palette cleanser 💜 I think you‘d like it @JennyM 23h
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen I listened to the audio. For me, it didn‘t drag at all, but I also tend to listen at 2x, so that helps. 😬 21h

I chose this book because I needed something light and fluffy to get me through this year‘s Christmas party madness and, well, this wasn‘t quite that as it goes to darker places than I expected. I did enjoy listening to it a lot and there was some lovely stuff in it (loved the kids, some lovely passages) but Ramsay‘s treatment of the kids at the start makes it hard to warm up to him.

Beauchamp Hall: A Novel | Danielle Steel

Dipping into a new book this afternoon. I‘ve actually never read a Danielle Steel before, nor did I know she writes in several genres. This one looked quite Christmassy from the cover, & was featured on my library‘s holiday shelf. The synopsis sounded quite a bit like Austenland with a dose of Downton Abbey - a perfect cozy read, which I crave this time of year. Hopefully this will be a fun, unexpected read.

This is definitely one of my favorite books that I have read this year. I loved the characters and the story and the setting. It was such an honest and entertaining book with a ton of heart and a meaningful message. It really dug into the idea of motherhood and finding yourself while being a mom. I loved everything about this one. 5 stars for me.

BrittanyReads Halfway through this right now and loving it!! 3d

throwmeabook @BookishTrish I actually ordered something for my son through Indigo and thought it was his present and put it in the basement hiding place with all the others. When I went to wrap it, I had quite a surprise when I opened up the package! Thank you again. 3d
