Not what I expected but such a fun read!!!
What a beautifully written book about love, life and friendship. A must read!
There are no words for how good this book is! It left me in tears ( both happy and sad). It is worth every page!!!!
Just started this and I'm loving it. I need recommendations for your favorite reads that are lighter reads. Any old favorites? New great reads? I'm looking for fun and light.....
All I can say is wow!!! This book kept me in suspense from the first page to the last. It is so smart and so well written. I love reading a book that leads you down a path, so perfectly choreographed that it's like a dance. No detail was overlooked, and I wasn't left with any questions or inconsistencies 5 stars. Thank you to netgalley for the ARC of this book
It's not a long book but it was a well written thriller. It kept me on my toes from the very beginning ( so much so that I actually had to read the last chapter before I could finish reading-I'm the worst!). I hoped the story wouldn't be convoluted into something silly and it wasn't. It's about a mother who will doing anything to find her kids. I could see being made into a great movie. 4 stars. Thank you to blogging for books for my free copy!
From the first page to the last, this book didn't stop moving. Definitely a pick for a great thriller.
I think my biggest problem with this book is the disconnect between what the book is about and the book description. This book is not magical and spellbinding. That is a wrong choice of words. To me, this book was a tragedy and I hated every part of the ending. I didn't feel the author provided a good enough explanation for some of Rose's behavior and for me, it almost nullified the rest of the book.
This book also fell along the same lines as When Dimple Met Rishi. It was a fun book to listen to. Kirsten and I loved the Paper Princess Series also by Erin Watt and we had mixed feelings about this book. It didn‘t quite live up to our expectations but, I really enjoyed it. It's the book version of a soap opera!!!!
I wasn‘t prepared for how good this audio book would be. It's one of the best books that I have ever listened to -more like a play rather than a book. Mitch Albom read the part of the narrator (Music) who is telling the story of the life of a fictional guitar player named Frankie Presto. At his funeral, musicians like Ingrid Michaelson and Lyle Lovett tell stories about his life. It was a wonderful book and I enjoyed listening to every minute!
Today is kids book review day and this was a month of sequels for us. If this book looks familiar to you, its because you probably know its beloved older brother Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. My kids actually got this back in April, but their recent obsession with Playmobil has reignited their interest in books related to construction. This one introduces 4 new characters to the Construction Site.
#TBT Read this last year but I saw it on my shelf and couldn't resist. If you haven't read this yet, be prepared for a powerful book that will change the way you see things. This should be required reading in every high school in this country!
All I can say is wow! Thank you so much for this ARC. This is a truly phenomenal book. And while it's written about A very difficult and recent time in our history, it somehow doesn't preach. It is a beautiful story about a nine-year-old white girl and a black woman whose lives become intertwined. I truly feel it is a must read. It is funny, heart-wrenching and impeccably written. This is a Stunning accomplishment in writing.
I had the pleasure of reading this book and I absolutely loved it. This is a perfect summer time read with just the right amount of romance, conflict, mystery and magic.
It‘s light, well-written and has just the right amount of magic. A Million Junes is a Young Adult novel; however, it doesn‘t feel juvenile or silly. I love reading a good young adult book to mix it up especially in the summer.
I think my issue with this book was that I listened to it on an audio book. While this can sometimes enhance the book, in this case, I found it difficult to listen to. The voices sounded fake and overacted so that the conversations sounded forced. I really wanted to like this book.
