The Kiss Curse: A Novel | Erin Sterling
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

I was so excited to be back in Graves Glen with these characters, although I would have loved more Halloween vibes. The mysterious magical plot line rushes in late in the story and could have been more developed. I wasn‘t as enchanted with this sequel as I was with The Ex Hex, but it was still a fun seasonal read! 🎧

⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is a fresh historical fiction novel. I was more engaged with Part 1 where we singularly followed Junja‘s story; Part 2 felt disjointed with the dual timeline and POV changes. Some parts were hard to read because they were really sad. Hahn‘s writing and the gorgeous cover evoke the beauty of the island, and I‘m glad I was able to learn more about this piece of Korea‘s past and culture.

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

If you‘re looking for a Halloween read that‘s more cozy than scary, give this ghostly rom-com a try! It‘s quirky and sweet, but also explores heavier themes of grief and mortality. I wasn‘t able to predict where this was going and was genuinely surprised by one twist! 🎧

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wait, am I actually a sports person?! Carrie‘s energy left me feeling exhilarated, as if I myself could slay someone in a beautiful game of tennis. (I have never played or watched tennis in my life.) My adrenaline was pumping and my tears were flowing! It‘s such a riveting story of fathers and daughters, ambition, fear, sexism, aging, pressure, and perfection. ⬇️

ICantImReading Some reviews say Carrie is unlikable, but I loved her unapologetic authenticity - she is relentless, determined, and an absolute force! The bitch is back, indeed! #AuthenticBooks 1w

Although I probably would have enjoyed this more if I were in my early twenties, this is a fun collegiate romance. Kiki‘s voice is sharp and witty and her chemistry and banter with Kai are great. The audiobook narration really enhanced the story and brought the characters to life! 🎧 #reesesbookclub

Fascinating and dynamic! Cooke reveals the way cultural biases and sexism have influenced science, resulting in a surprisingly limited understanding of the actual diversity and importance of the female experience in the animal world. Filled with wild anecdotes and snarky humor, this book makes science fun and filled me with wonder and curiosity! 🎧

Other Birds: A Novel | Sarah Addison Allen

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

This was such a lovely read! I adored the vibrant, complex characters and wanted to join their “other bird” found flock. With the island setting and magical elements, it‘s the perfect book to read in the transition from summer to fall; gently reminding us to let go of one season in order to fully embrace what the next chapter brings. #BOTM

They Never Learn | Layne Fargo
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The short chapters and POV shifts made this such a page-turner! I didn‘t predict the way the two stories intersected, which I thought was a great twist. I would have liked to see a little more nuance to the male characters, and it feels a little wrong to root for a serial killer, but this was definitely a fast-paced, exciting, and satisfying dark academia thriller! 🎧

I wasn‘t familiar with the Ramayana before this book, so I appreciated the author‘s take on this Indian epic and the re-imagination of Kaikeyi‘s character with a feminist bent. However, it dragged for me in some spots. 🎧

I really loved “Normal People” and enjoyed “Beautiful World, Where Are You”. Rooney‘s writing is sharp, but this one is my least favorite of her novels. I didn‘t really connect with the characters and being in Frances‘ head made me feel a bit detached and depressed.🎧

The Last Housewife: A Novel | Ashley Winstead

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This pitch-black, pulsating thrill ride fanned a flame of smoldering resentment within me, one that burns in frustration at the internalization of the male gaze, inequities in gendered power dynamics, and examples of extraordinary and everyday misogyny. With a terrifyingly plausible secret society and a heart-pounding ending, it left me with my thoughts spinning, breathless.

With shades of “The House in the Cerulean Sea”, this is a cute, uplifting, witchy read of belonging and found family. I personally would have liked more of the magic and quirky children and less of the romance. I‘m officially ready for fall! 🎧✨🍂

The Blind Assassin: A Novel | Margaret Atwood
post image
Pickpick

5 ⭐️s! I know this isn‘t news to anyone… but Margaret Atwood‘s writing is exquisite. I loved the story within a story, the witty and reflective passages about aging, the incisive examination of traditional gender roles, and the way she captured humans‘ yearning to be remembered. Even though it‘s long, I still felt sad to turn the final page in Iris Chase‘s story - like saying a wistful goodbye to a great friend. #BOTM #botmbacklist #botmbacklog

LeslieO I loved this book! I accidentally left it in a coffee shop when I was halfway thru, I went back immediately but it was gone. So I went to the right to the bookstore and bought another copy so I could finish it! 1mo

I‘ve seen a few reviews of this book say something like, “I‘m not a gamer, but…” I also identified with this sentiment, although I‘m wondering if maybe I‘ve had the wrong impression of games. If they‘re anything like the creative ones in this book, maybe I could be a gamer! This illuminated the artistry, storytelling, philosophy, and beauty of games for me in a whole new way. It‘s a moving tale of life‘s wins, losses, and restarts. 🎧

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

With one of the most unique and fun concepts for a thriller that I‘ve read in awhile, I loved journeying backward through time with the protagonist as she attempts to piece together how to save her son from committing a murder. It‘s clever and twisty, but equally thought-provoking and heartfelt, exploring destiny, second chances, unconditional love, and supernatural hysterical strength. Don‘t miss this one! 🎧 #reesesbookclub

This haunting and captivating book begs to be discussed! I did pick up on the twist, but didn‘t mind because it allowed me to fully appreciate how clever the writing is. Cassie‘s narration of the story is at times frustrating, uncomfortable, and disorienting - and it‘s masterfully done. I know I won‘t stop thinking about the Quinn family anytime soon. #BOTM

⭐️⭐️⭐️

This historical fiction thriller is cinematic and I could see it translating well to a movie or mini-series! For me as an audiobook, there were too many characters to keep track of (10 different points of view!), and delving into the backstories kept breaking up the action of the story. 🎧

I wholeheartedly felt the Latinx pride pulsing through this novel and was inspired while reading to do more research on the history, politics, and challenges of Puerto Rico. I appreciated the commentary on topics like gentrification and colonization. However, I did feel like there was too much going on and it dragged at times.

I won this through Goodreads - thank you to Flatiron Books for the opportunity to read and review this book!

True Story | Kate Reed Petty

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book is brilliant. Playing with narrative style, voice, and genre, “True Story” examines how trauma shapes us. Who gets to tell stories and why; what is truth, and does it matter? I picked it up on a whim and finished it in less than 48 hours - it is completely engrossing, incredibly creative, and leaves a powerful impression.

⭐️⭐️💫

I actually read another Amazon First Reads book! Unfortunately, I didn‘t love this one either. I thought this was an entertaining enough (but shallow and predictable) satirical thriller. I liked the exploration of cultural appropriation and whitewashing of the wellness industry, and the way “wellness” is often commodified and curated into a careful aesthetic, rather than doing real work to “be well”. Also… never cross a raven!

TrishB I‘ve stopped getting them most months now they‘ve been so poor and then I don‘t read them! 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

While many murder mysteries focus on plot, this book does a deep-dive into the flawed characters and invites readers to understand the people involved and the nuances of the situation. It‘s complex and compelling while also examining the true crime genre, the way all of us compartmentalize parts of ourselves, and the expectations and limitations we place on women and their stories. 🎧

Usually I tend to let my poor Amazon First Reads books linger forever in my Kindle library, but I figured I should give this pick a try while we‘re in beach reading season! We‘re not going on a vacation this year, but this book succeeded in transporting me to the shores of North Carolina. Unfortunately, I didn‘t feel much of an emotional connection to the characters. The dialogue often felt wooden and the plot seemed contrived.

ICantImReading In this series, people have destroyed the world and human race as we know it, although some of what is inherent to the human experience hasn‘t been eradicated: art and song, storytelling and searching for meaning, love and jealousy, birth and death.

I‘m surprised I haven‘t heard more buzz about this addictive and brilliant feminist retelling!

A friend lent me this book, but I ended up buying my own copy because I can see myself finding comfort in its pages during difficult times (and wanting to loan or gift it to others). It‘s packed with short passages that draw from topics like poetry, philosophy, science, history, and personal essays, all aiming to remind us there is always hope. I wanted to savor this book slowly, reading only a bit at a time to let the words digest.

Journeying through eighty-seven emotions might not sound like the most exciting adventure, but Brené‘s newest work is psychologically fascinating, providing the language to help us better understand and make meaning of our experiences, and then turn that into deeper connection with others. ⬇️

ICantImReading I loved listening to her narrate this - I can tell she‘s an amazing teacher! Usually with non-fiction I find myself rewinding a lot to let things sink in, but she frequently re-read phrases for emphasis and clarification.

It‘s creepy for a 17-year-old to fall for her who-knows-how-actually-old wizard captor, especially when he‘s a dick (routinely telling her things like she‘s useless and horse-faced). The romance came out of nowhere, much like Agnieszka‘s sudden incredible natural magical ability. I found myself wanting to skim through a lot of the middle.
