This post war noir set in Atlanta Georgia follows the story of the first 8 black police officers and the corrupt system in which they find themselves. The prose is tight, compelling and impactful and the author pulls no punches in yelling this thrilling story. Great on #audio

Suzze Thanks for the reminder! I read this in 2016 and really liked it. Then i bought the second one and forgot all about it! 2d
Julsmarshall @Suzze and @MicheleinPhilly I didn‘t realize until I finished it that there are more in the series! Looking forward to reading them too. Eventually, lol. 2d

#NetGalley #ARC #Audio ♥️🎧 This book covers all the messy, complicated, dysfunctional ways families & siblings hurt each other but also reminds us “so life goes”….I LOVED being immersed in the thorny branches of the Oppenheimer clan but TIGHTER editing was very much needed!!! This would have been 5 stars but I spent way too much tangled in unnecessary prose. The audio narration by Julia Whelan was outstanding 🙌🏻‼️♥️

BarbaraBB It sounds great and that cover is wonderful! 2w
Cinfhen Once you read the story it‘s even a better cover @BarbaraBB VERY CLEVER 🤓 2w
AmyG Very excited to read this now. I loved The Plot. 2w

Cinfhen I think you‘d really like this one @AmyG despite it being a bit too overwritten 2w
britt_brooke Nice review! I need to figure out how to get audio ARCs from NetGalley. I assume it‘s pretty easy? 😅 (edited) 1w
Cinfhen Yes!!! Audio ARCs are the BOMB @britt_brooke Just go to the tab for audio / you‘ll need to download the NetGalley Shelf App if you haven‘t yet to play the audios. At this point I‘m ONLY requesting Audio Arcs although I‘m still invited to read digital which I need to stop accepting 😬 1w
britt_brooke @Cinfhen Oh cool, thanks! I need to download the app. 1w

Strange and beautiful, this mystery immerses you in the Siberian peninsula in Soviet Russia and, like the location, is unusual and starkly lovely. I listened on #audio but want to read it agin in print to follow all the separate stories that somehow perfectly wind together in the end. Wow, quite a debut! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 2w

#NetGalley #Audio #ARC Another messy family drama - this started at rough for me but I ended up really enjoying. Three sisters are left a summer cottage in Maine, where their mother wants them to visit one last time before she requires them to sell the home. Of course each sister and their dying mother is holding unto secrets, regrets and disappointments. Wonderful narration held my interest and kept me listening. Needed tighter editing!

Megabooks I might borrow not buy this one. 2w
Cinfhen That‘s probably the right way to go…also audio was very good @Megabooks but still a #BorrowNotBuy 2w

#AudioBaking I‘m enjoying parts of this book BUT it feels SO long….I feel like most books I‘ve read recently need tighter editing (IMO) #ARC #Audio #NetGalley - I do love the cover art

Megabooks I liked her historical fiction, but her last one was a miss for me. 2w
Cinfhen Yeah, I was totally thinking the same thing. Her HF is much better / it‘s because the story is already there as opposed to her contemporary fiction where she‘s creating the storyline @Megabooks 2w
Bklover Hey my dear!!❤️❤️❤️ 2w
Cinfhen Hi Missy 😊🫶🏼 what‘s new @Bklover ??!! 2w

So, this is a no for me. If it wasn't a #BookClub read I would have #DNF the book, so it got somewhat interesting but... if you don't plan on reading the next in the series (which I am not interested enough in that) it is really a waste of time. Also maybe because this was #Audio instead of print, but all the names of the places and people got jumbled for me, not sure if the print has some sort of map or something.

KristiAhlers A member of a book club I belonged to also has a secondary club she reads with and they read this title and not a one liked it. She offered me a copy but I was yeah I‘m good. 2w
ElizaMarie @KristiAhlers haha good choice 2w
RedxoHearts Same here. I just couldn't get into it and kept confusing with all the names they would talk about 6d
ElizaMarie @RedxoHearts I am glad I am not the only one that wasn't into it. 5d

April 2022 #bookreport!

I was leaning really heavy on the audio this month, with everything but the comics being audio books. I need to actually finish a print book to help break the slump.

#ARC #Audio #NetGalley #SapphicNovel
A beautiful, mesmerizing story of Sara & Emilie - each harboring pain, loss, regret and family secrets.
Both looking to unburden their past, both too afraid to let go.
I LOVED this book 💜
Audio narration was excellent 🎧🙌🏻

LeeRHarry Happy to hear you enjoyed this 😊 makes me more excited to read it! 2w
