This book has its flaws but overall was super original and made me feel, a lot. Not just sad, tho that was most felt. I read most of it on one flight and cried a lot in front of strangers.
This is a book about familial death. I miss my sister a lot.
CW for several methods of dying.

Edit: as I think about this book more, I really did not like the ending. It fizzles out a bit. Keeping 🤘🏼 tho.

I have a special place on my heart for sibling books, because I have so many of them... I couldn‘t sleep and read this book in one go. If you‘ve ever grappled with the concept of self-fulfilling prophecies, this is the book for you.

Why does it always feel like somebody's watching me? 🧐 I wish I was as interesting a person as my cat apparently thinks I am.

Our little guy does not like us reading books to him but he'll invent his own stories as he flips through the pages. However, with a new addition in the house we attempt to read this book each night. Even if he is playing we will still read the book to him.

Boy I've read some great stuff in 2020 already. This is a masterpiece. The characters come alive, balanced with enough plot to keep things moving. Just the way patchett unfolds info about the story in the first chapter is wonderful. I haven't read everything by her but I've read a lot and this hands down is my favorite.

Megabooks How the little one? Have you read Free Food for Millionaires yet? I‘m just starting it. 7d
8little_paws @Megabooks he's good!! I haven't started it yet. I have a stack of library ones to read first. But I'm almost done with them, just chipping away!! 7d

This one gave me all the feels!! I loved this story about three teens who find their biological family. I especially identified with Grace, but loved getting chapters from all three characters.

This is a story about love and family - the family we have and the family we find. Most of all, I loved seeing Joaquin and Grace and Maya grow closer together, becoming their own family. So much love in this book - I cried the entire last quarter. 😭❤️

MeganAnn #NewYearWhoDis Book 3. @4thhouseontheleft you obviously have amazing taste since I‘ve given all three books I‘ve read off your list five stars. 😍😱👏🏻 @monalyisha 1w
4thhouseontheleft 🥰🥰 I‘m glad you are enjoying the books off my list! I‘m hoping to pick up the next book from your list next week! 1w
MeganAnn @4thhouseontheleft I really am! I‘m reading Queenie in ebook format right now. I have We‘re Going to Need More Wine on my shelf and Hey Kiddo from the library. And my hold for On Earth We‘re Briefly Gorgeous just came in so I need to pick that one up from the library soon also. I might not finish them all in January, but it‘s such a great list I‘m going to keep reading from it all year! ❤️ (edited) 7d
4thhouseontheleft @MeganAnn I plan on reading from your list over the next few months too! I am so excited that my Red, White and Royal Blue library hold came in, so that is jumping to the top of my TBR pile. I also have Boy, Snow, Bird and Burial Rites checked out right now. I actually meant to read Burial Rites this past summer before we went to Iceland but I ran out of time before the trip! 7d

First book of 2020 complete. I enjoyed the premise of this one and it has been on my TBR pile for 2 years, so I'm feeling accomplished to mark it as read. I found the second half a bit slower than the first but overall I'd give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This lengthy family saga seemed to go in so many different directions. The story mainly revolves around three sisters and how they dealt with their brother, collectively and individually. I would have preferred to see more between the sisters. There were numerous side plots and details that pulled the reader away from the central story, though. Also, as a CT resident, I often found the sections on CT geography a little confusing. 🤔 3⭐️ #hoopla

I was really not prepared for how heartbreaking this novel would be. I‘ve pretty much dedicated my entire day to find out the date of the four Gold siblings. Spark from ripping my heart from my chest I loved everything about this book. The multiple perspectives, the structure, the characters, the writing. Two five star books in a week, a promising start to 2020.
