Sometimes I like to read books I remember loving as a kid/teenager and see if they still hold up. I‘m enjoying this one the second time around!

The Hotel Nantucket | Elin Hilderbrand

Pickpick

I was really charmed by this! Easy, breezy, fluffy brain candy, with fun characters and a gossipy village feel to Nantucket that hit the spot. Plus an omnipresent ghost narrator from the hotel‘s heyday! Perfect for your beach bag with a couple of caveats. The incessant pop culture reference-dropping was annoying, and fat-shaming terminology and attitudes reared their (sadly not unusual) ugly head a few times. But a 4 ⭐️ heart-warmer non-the-less.

StayCurious Great review! 6mo

Cortg Nice! I‘ve given my mom and sister some EH books to read but I‘ve yet to pick one up and read myself. I really should! 6mo

Everlost by Neal Shusterman

This was the first Shusterman book that I read and I was hooked. So far, I've enjoyed every book that I read of his. This one is about kids being stuck in limbo after death.

I mean, you‘re not going to get the answer you may want, but it was a well-written book. Entertaining exploration. “Pick” for what it is!

Here Goes Nothing | Steve Toltz

Mehso-so

Few theories about what happens to us after death can be as grimly depressing as the shabby, overcrowded, bureaucratically mismanaged version of the afterlife that Toltz conjures up here. Often very funny but I felt it rather ran out of steam towards the end.

Clare-Dragonfly Sounds like the afterlife in Beetlejuice! 9mo

1. Finished the tagged book last week and loved it! Very original and hopeful.
2. Maybe not necessarily better, but I think they can be powerful.

If you want to play, consider yourself tagged! 🤗

TheSpineView Thanks for playing and happy Tuesday! 10mo

This book is all about lessons of sacrifice, love, forgiveness, letting go of anger and conscious that you have some form of impact on everyone you meet. A book you can but don‘t want to finished in one sitting. Cried buckets after reading this one.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Loved this! When 15-year-old Liz is hit by a car and dies, she goes to Elsewhere where she will age backwards until she can be reborn as a baby. She‘s not happy about being dead or aging backwards, as there was so much Liz wanted to do and experience on Earth. But she finds out you can still have a good “life” even if it‘s not what you thought it would be.
