#WondrousWednesday @Eggs

1. Tagged. It also took me forever to find it since I lived in Providence, RI at the time and finding books in Spanish was very difficult.

2. John Grisham

3. Salvar el Fuego (Saving the Fire) by Guillermo Arriaga. I fell in love with his writing after I read this book and have been on buddy reads for his books where he joins the last meeting and he is AMAZING!

Oye: A Novel | Melissa Mogollon

This book has a very unique format and I have to say I‘m not a fan.

I love family drama, but reading it in the form of one-sided phone conversations is getting tiresome…

Megabooks I wondered whether it would work. 21h
Amor4Libros @Megabooks I feel it might have an audience, but I‘m probably not it. I will keep reading it because the story is interesting, but will take my time with it. 17h

I was looking for something lighthearted last night and started this…Got to 18% and it was just not doing it for me.

This is a VERY old #NetGalley ARC 😅

This was a roller-coaster of emotions! The story opens with our main character, Ella, being released from prison. What follows is her trying to find her footing in the outside world and flashbacks to what led to her incarceration.

We‘re also given POVs (past and present) from her Mom, Helen, and her ex-boyfriend, Jude.

I loved it. This is perfect for fans of second-chance stories and mother/daughter relationships.

What I enjoyed the most about this book is the 3 different POVs, even though sometimes it took a little bit of adjusting from one to the other (this happened mostly with Nick).

The story centers around a Chinese-American family and how trying to shape fate affected them. I loved it. I loved the dynamics and how the author developed the characters and presented the story.

3.5⭐️ I liked this. The story felt very raw from the get-go, but then it started to lose me towards the end.

I recognize what the author was trying to do, and I know that she was looking to convey Catalina‘s roller-coaster of emotions for what she was going through, and even though I never lost interest in the story, it didn‘t live up to the hype for me.

I finished this audiobook so fast! Very informative. I have a friend who is very deep into this culture and I recognized a lot of the traits she‘s displaying in the ones mentioned in this book. 😕

The length of the book was also perfect, and you didn‘t get over-dumped with a lot of stats and facts all at once.

Sace I struggle with non fiction audio because of the stats and information overload. I stacked this earlier thinking I would read the book. Maybe I‘ll try the audiobook instead. 1mo
Amor4Libros @Sace I highly recommend the audio. It‘s only about 5 hours and you‘ll be done before you know it. 1mo

I admit I grabbed this because of the cover. And because the 5th anniversary of my Mom‘s passing is fast-approaching and I felt drawn to see how someone else dealt with their grief.

What I found inside were simple poems, but some of them felt like the warmest hug and words on paper of how I feel about life at this moment.

Wonderful debut! The story centers around Layla, who is engaged to Andy. Something unique about them is that they both have the same last name. Layla‘s BFF, Sera, watches a documentary which suggests that Andy‘s family enslaved Layla‘s.

This story is very unique and it brought up a roller-coaster of emotions.

If going into a deep-dive about family histories while dealing with the consequences in the present day is your thing, read this!
