I love Harry Potter, so hearing this book billed as “for fans of Harry Potter” scared me right from the start.See if this sounds familiar: orphan who doesn‘t know much about their parents finds out they have magical powers and goes to a school for magical people where they have to save the day. The writing is so clunky and awkward, my favorite example: “Her heart thudded like an obese butterfly.” JK Rowling this is not, unfortunately.

DGRachel Oh, that's an unfortunate simile. 😳 3w
wanderinglynn It‘s a red flag to me when they have to put on the cover “million-bestselling author.” Yet I‘ve never heard of this author. 🤔 3w

At times heartbreaking, this story delves into so many themes: infertility, family drama, marriage drama, grief. All this is set in Nigeria, which is going through its own challenges with political instability. The title is quite as apt, as this story will definitely stay with me for a long time.

I can totally understand how someone read this and thought “I have to make this story into a movie.” Henry Hill is larger than life, and his journey from a little boy helping out at a cab stand to becoming one of the top players in the Lucchese crime family is incredible to read about. He tells the story with such wit and cleverness that entire paragraphs of his words were used verbatim in the movie Goodfellas.

Sure Thing | Jana Aston

Fun enough, but a little cheesy—every page, we‘re reminded that British accents are sexy. Jennings and Violet hook up immediately, but they are keeping secrets from each other. From my perspective, the secrets were not really a big deal. Lots of very sexy writing keeps things interesting enough along the way, but I‘m not really excited about another book in this series. #romantsy

A very sweet story that reminds us that “real families come from choices we make about who we want to be bound to.” Three lonely people who appear to be very different on the surface manage to find each other and form a family. I loved how natural the relationship was between Maddy as a teenager and Arthur as an old man. There does not always have to be animosity between the young and the old.

This book is like character of Bernadette,a bit of a mess. Part of it was the way the story was told through a mix of faxes, emails, and narration by a teenager who at times seems to know things that should be impossible for her to know. Bernadette‘s husband is a truly loathsome character, which I won‘t get into because spoilers. And then there‘s Bernadette, who seems to spend a good portion of the book hating on people and the city of Seattle.

MySharonaK I think your comment is just the push I needed to bail. I‘m about 30% through and I really don‘t enjoy it, but people kept telling me to give it a chance and that I won‘t regret it. I think it‘s time to bail, thank you 💐 3mo
arubabookwoman You did the right thing. It only gets worse. (As a Seattleite I will admit to enjoying some of her Seattle snark, though). 3mo
Purrfectpages I tried to read this years ago and bailed. So many people love it though and now it‘s a movie, so I figured maybe I wasn‘t in the right headspace when I read it and should give it another try. Then I see this post and I know I‘m not alone lol 3mo

I feel like the goal of a good true crime story, in my opinion, is to feel like you‘re following along with the investigators and peeking over their shoulder as they uncover the clues that lead them to the killer. I wanted to feel some suspense and tension. This story finally got there about 1/4 of the way from the end. In the meantime, it was bogged down with a lot of extraneous detail that just felt like filler.

I loved this book. The writing is gorgeous and the characters, especially Katey Kontent, are so multi-dimensional that they stay with you long after reading. Towles is a master at creating a sense of place, so Manhattan in the late 1930s became almost another character. It made me wish I could experience NYC like it was back then.

The Huntress | Kate Quinn
post image
Pickpick

I love finding historical fiction novels that introduce me to a piece of actual history that I never knew about. I had never heard of the Night Witches. Nina was my favorite character and I loved the descriptions of her childhood on the taiga in Siberia followed by her exploits in the sky as a pilot and her hunt for The Huntress. Quinn even managed to sneak in a quick cameo from Eve Gardiner from “The Alice Network,” which was neat.

Kaila-ann Nina was my favorite too and can‘t wait to read other stories about female pilots. 4mo

Landline | Rainbow Rowell

Maybe Rainbow Rowell is better suited to write YA characters. Georgie McCool just strikes me as a little too scattered and immature to be a married mother of two. Her husband Neal is so closed-off and cold, I have a hard time seeing him as a loving father. And her friend Seth seems to have no other purpose than to make Neal jealous. I didn‘t end up really liking or relating to any of them.

I downloaded this book for free from Amazon for International Book Day because the setting of the Cuban revolution interested me. I‘m not sure if it is the original writing or the translation, but the writing felt really flat to me. It also irritated me greatly that the narration switched from first person Carmela to first person Ignacio to third person. It was confusing and didn‘t add anything to the story.

Douglass tries everything he can think of to save his ailing marriage. When his wife tells him she‘s thinking of leaving him, he decides they should go through with the Grand Tour of Europe they had planned with their 17 year old son.

As a nurse, I had to suspend some of my disbelief regarding how these characters behaved in the hospital.I can tell you now, there‘s no way you can just run around and visit the NICU.Aside from that, I found the story quite touching. Compared to “The Fault in Our Stars,” which has some similarities, I felt like these teens were much more realistic in the way they talked and the decisions they made.The ending even made me tear up a little.

It was supposed to be the war to end all wars, but unfortunately that was not the case.It felt very fitting to finish this book on Memorial Day weekend.This book drew me in with a very creative setup by having a WW1 historical romance delivered by Greek gods.I also appreciated the author‘s notes at the end detailing her research. Although the main characters were fictional, she uses actual people from the time as some of the supporting characters.

I recognized Treavor Noah as the host of The Daily Show, but I didn‘t know anything else about him when I picked up this book. It was really illuminating for me to hear about his childhood growing up during apartheid in South Africa. At times, his story made me laugh out loud. In the end though, it was his amazing story of his relationship with his mother that made me love this book. I‘d recommend this book to anyone.
