Oh how I needed this book right now. Fast paced and interesting, perfect for fans of Big Little Lies (and for some reason my pictures aren‘t posting....)
I really hope this story is true because Agatha Christie is a badass! Also, we went away for the weekend and took the dog with us, we let her up in the bed for the first time ever and I fear I‘ve made a grave mistake, she loves it and will probably try to get in the bed at home now too!
Am I the only one who feels like most non-fiction books can really just be summed up in an hour long podcast?? I‘m about half way through and getting bored with this one, I just wanna know why they drank the kool-aid already!
It was cute and I can totally see it as a Hallmark movies “cozy mystery” (which I absolutely love), I just think I would have liked it more if the main character wasn‘t the main murder suspect. She was a little too casual and thinking about her love life too much for having just gotten arrested, if was her best friend or her aunt that she had to clear it would have made more sense
Book of the Month calls this one a “suspense” and I would have to disagree, it was not a thriller at all either. It did take some time for the full story to come out and I‘m not sure the “twist” was necessary but an engrossing read overall looking at the downward spiral of the family and how the kids come out of it. I think if you liked “Room” you‘ll like this one
Has anyone read this book? Who is Daniel? He‘s mentioned on page 9, but I‘m now on page 68 and have not seen this name again yet. Do we ever find out? Does this name come up again or is it an editing mistake? I‘m very confused
This is the stack of books that no longer fit on my bookshelf. My husband says I have a problem, I don‘t see it
So while the country was falling apart this afternoon I was blissfully unaware spending my gift card at Barnes and Noble, then I got home
And then this happened!
I‘m sure this is a very unpopular opinion but this was just ok for me. It might be the mindset I was in while I was trying to listen to it but I had to renew it from the library twice to get through it. It was long and a lot happened. Be sure to listen to the author‘s note at the end.
It was a little slow at times and I wanted more from the ending but I really like this “deep dive” into Grace‘s mind and her motives. I have to admit the story sounded interesting but I really picked this book because I needed a Debut book for my BOTM reading challenge, it‘s introducing me to some new authors!
I would have totally believed it if you told me this book was a memoir. I don‘t particularly like memoirs but this writing style felt so real to me. I‘m not a religious person but I work in health care, and I often wonder how religious people balance religious beliefs with science as Gifty does here.
I don‘t know what it was about this book that I didn‘t connect with but something felt off with this one
Every time I get ready to start a new book I pick 3 options and read the book descriptions to my husband. This is the one he picked for me to read next. Other options were The Comeback and My Dark Vanessa
A low so-so for me and I would round up to three stars. It‘s a shame because this would have been a pick if it wasn‘t for every cringe-worthy scene between Sylvie and Lucas
I wanted to finish my book today but I ended up finishing the socks I‘ve been knitting instead! They are a Christmas gift so I‘m way ahead of schedule this year
It‘s hard to review this book, but I liked it. It took me about 100 pages to really get in to the story and most of the historical fiction I‘ve read has been WW2 fiction so civil war era was a change for me. It‘s the story of the everyday for the people who lived during this time and how they cling to beliefs and the people they love.
I thought I was going to like this one because the concept seemed right up my alley. But, it took me forever to read because I just wasn‘t in to it. It was kinda depressing and I would have liked if Lydia actually spent more time in her alternate reality. It was also a bit too long in my opinion.
