I'm reading this book and finding it so disturbing. I'm about halfway through, is it worth finishing?

Blueberry I liked it until the last chapter. Because of that i gave it a so-so rating. 3mo
Jerdencon Did you end up finishing? Curious to hear your thoughts! 2mo

The Chicken Sisters | KJ Dell'Antonia

I finally finished a physical book! I enjoyed this book, which loosely based on two sisters from Kansas who had a falling out and split their chicken restaurant into two competing restaurants. This grudge was perpetuated over generations and the book is centered around Mae and Amanda and a tv show called Food Wars.

It was a fun fairly light book and a good time. Just what I needed right now!

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Sounds good! 11mo

Thank you!!
