I‘m visiting my Mom for the holidays, so what a great time to start my ritual of visiting & visually capturing local, independent bookstores wherever I travel. WordsWorth is Little Rock‘s (Arkansas) largest & oldest independent bookstore. It is quaint and employed by people who love reading.

3.5 ⭐️This 📖 is about having the courage to let go of what no longer serves us & taking out a new lease (📚 specific pun) on life. Of the rom-com genre, it delights w/ its atmospheric plot & witty dialogue. Read it if you‘re looking for a cozy read w/ a side of laughter. I was delighted that the 📚 features hints of feminism: a sex-positive woman‘s book club & a differently abled 🏳️‍🌈 background character. 📄: 429 🛑: hint of emotional abuse

I live in an unincorporated tiny country town. Besides the beautiful countryside, like the river that runs behind my house, the best thing about living here is the library bookmobile that makes a stop across from my house every 2 weeks. If I‘m not home, the bookmobile librarians drop off the books I have on hold at my front door. This was today‘s haul. 1/2 of the holds became available at the same time. Decisions, decisions. 😬 🎉

4/5⭐️. This book is about the complexities of truth & identity, esp for people who must navigate a world that is not made for them or by them. Rather than be a surface-level “extra” plot line, I ❤️ that 🏳️‍🌈 rep is a main feature. I wish the effort to explore the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality was more prevalent, however. Overall, this is a winner of a choice for a weekend binge, a holiday break escape, or a snow day treat.

CuriousG I have this on audio but haven't managed to start it yet - perhaps I should move it up my TBR 🤔 2w
BookBosomed1 @CuriousG Oooh. I‘m intrigued by the idea of an audio version. Move it up so you can tell me about it. 😉 2w

3 ⭐️ A quick read. I was gripped all the way until the end (even if I was 🙄 at some parts). Unfortunately, the ending fell flat for me. It felt too convenient. I also am tired of the woman-vs-woman-because-of-a-man trope. Far more interesting would be a plot where Verity and Lowen discover they do not need a romantic relationship to feel whole, become BFFs, move to NYC, and collaborate on a widely successful book. 🤷‍♀️

5 ⭐️. What a brave, daring, & striking book. This
book is the reason I ❤️ reading - 📚 that shape the ground I walk on in search and wonderment of all that is life. It‘s about reimagining a life as it was & as it could have been. It‘s about the power of a community of women who are punished for violating gendered expectations, yet use their individual strengths to collectively build a sisterhood of courage, intelligence, wisdom, & beauty. Wow.

If you ever visit Madison, WI, check out A Room of One‘s Own (feminist, 🏳️‍🌈 bookstore). 2. Sometimes. I typically just like to browse and let the book covers call to me.

2.5-3⭐️. If you enjoy classic ghost stories with dual timelines, you‘ll likely enjoy this 📖. This is the second 📕I have read from this author; this ending also felt too predictable & forced - as if the author wasn‘t sure how it was going to end while writing it. However, for a supernatural tale, this 📖 follows a familiar pattern so it‘s like to be a satisfying read if you‘re looking for a semi-suspenseful, atmospheric tale.

kplovesbooks I'm reading this now, almost halfway through. It's super interesting but I already know it's not going to be more than a 3⭐ for sure. 3w
BookBosomed1 @kplovesbooks Yes. Based on the two I‘ve read, her books are too formulaic for my taste. The first part of the books seem tightly written/interesting and then they fizzle. 3w
kplovesbooks @BookBosomed1 This is my first by her, and I wasn't sure what to expect going in. I'll be getting to the fizzle then soon in this one, as I'm almost halfway. 3w

📚: This 📕 is about riding the waves of life‘s ups & downs, believing in the magic of forgiveness & ❤️. I recommend it for readers who need a comforting, quick read. Prepare yourself a bubble bath, grab a 🍷 or 🫖, & soak in the cozy. As with any K.H. 📚, to appreciate it fully, you must suspend logic for a bit & find solace in romance and magical realism. If you can do that, this made-for-Hallmark tale is likely to calm your soul. 3/5 ⭐️ 240 pgs

Whoa. This is a 📕 of historical fiction that‘ll stick to my bones & burrow itself into my brain. At the core of this 📕 is the question: Who do we become when the stories people tell about us overshadow how we see ourselves? It‘s about the authority given to people with unearned resources of power to tell the life stories of those who are marginalized because of circumstances beyond their control. 🙏 to @Alfrazier21 for gifting it to me.

Whoa. I devoured it. With many references to Edgar Allen Poe‘s work, this book is intense, dark, and twisty. I ❤️ it so much I was about to go to the bookstore & get the sequel, but it isn‘t being released until March. Bah! 🛑: bullying, torture, (implied) mistreatment of animals, death of dog, implied racism (albeit not a focus of the book but present at times) @LibrarianRyan & @MaleficentBookDragon you both were right! This is a great 📕.

3.5 ⭐️ This novel gives a glimpse into the story behind a story. It is about the 🪄 that 📕 give to our lives and the 🪄 that our lives inspire in 📕. Sometimes Callahan‘s writing is too precious for my taste; I want the dialogue & flow of the story to be more seamless. However, her books are injected w/ ❤️ morals that leave a sigh in hearts and a smile on 👄. If you are looking for a cozy cry with an ending that is wrapped in a 🎀, try this 📖.

My feelings about this book are complicated. It‘s a riveting read about the mystery surrounding two teenagers who go missing after a romantic night out. The book bounces back-n-forth bw their last days and after their disappearance. OTOH, I wasn‘t thrilled with how the 🏳️‍🌈 relationship in this book was represented. I won‘t say more in case you want to read the book. Overall, the 📕kept me engaged. CW: domestic violence, kidnapping

2.5-3⭐ Grab some 🍷 to go with this 🧀! If you like adult rom-coms & seasonal stories, you are likely to enjoy this read. It would be a 👍 choice if you need your next read to be light & fluffy. I almost bailed on this book several times bc Rhys grated on my nerves, but this is not my usual book genre so he may be perfectly palatable for others. 👍: There is a 🏳️‍🌈 character. Surface-level representation but representation nonetheless.

The Owens family learns that a life well-lived is a life well-loved thus ending the beloved series. Admittedly, the middle of the book dragged for me, but the ending made it all worth it. So, if this happens to you, channel your Energizer 🐰 & keep going. One of the things I love about the series is the feminist overtones, which this 📖 continues. This 📕 also includes a sapphic storyline! 🎉 - 🏳️‍🌈 women can also find love & be magical!

The Night Sister: A Novel | Jennifer McMahon
post image
Mehso-so

I enjoyed this 📖 up until the last 1/3 of the book. The 📚 is about a family with a dark secret that leads two sisters to see one another as monsters - a perception that will lead to tragic consequences for several generations. At the ❤️ of the story is the msg that familial secrets destroy lives. Spoiler in the comments. A positive about this 📕: the author is 🏳️‍🌈 so the mild representation of a sapphic attraction in the 📖 felt authentic.

BookBosomed1 I was hoping the storyline of the “mare” was a metaphor for what happens when families refuse to acknowledge neurodivergence. The literal human-turns-werewolf trope disappointed me immensely. I wanted the book to be a clever, psychological thriller rather than a fantasy thriller. The book felt like the author had difficulty choosing a genre since the ending felt forced and too loose-goosey. Oh, well. 🤷‍♀️ (edited) 1mo
