Making my way through #hellosunshine reading list
So far, not representative of my life and marriage, but quite interesting #hellosunshine
I enjoyed the Pasternak and Ola storyline and the US involvement in the publication of Dr. Zhivago. I was also intrigued by the roles women played in the early intelligence wars, from typist to spy, but I didn‘t think the character development worked very well in that part of the storyline. Nevertheless a bit of a treat for me to read. Picture is just the day‘s harvest to go with the day‘s reading. #hellosunshine
I struggled through the 1st half - I felt the characters were indistinguishable from another. The 2nd half was a whole different ballgame - I couldn‘t put it down! I can relate to the issues they faced in their workplace, even felt angry at times + can see why this book resonates with so many. I loved the mystery behind their CEO‘s death + twists surrounding it.
“Even the prickliest cactus has its flower.. ”
Susan‘s not a very likable character, she can be prickly, brittle + dry (unemotional) + keeps her life under control. After reading her mother‘s will leaving the family home to her feckless brother + learning she‘s expecting a baby (in her 40‘s) her prickles start flexing! She‘s hard to warm up to but the laugh out loud moments made up for it. 3.5 ☆
This was a quick, fun read that explores the idea of love at first sight. The guy and girl go through quite a bit and prove that although love at first sight can be real, it takes more than that to ultimately be together. The characters were frustrating at times, but overall I enjoyed their journey. #Reesesbookclub #hellosunshine #Readingwomenchallenge2019 -A romance or love story. #romcom #contemporaryromance
