Other Birds: A Novel | Sarah Addison Allen
post image
Pickpick

Sometimes you just need a bubble bath of a book and when that happens Sarah Addison Allen is a great author to turn to. A group of people living in the same apartment building come together and build the kind of friendships that help them be set free from their pasts. A sprinkle of magical realism and a lot of sweetness made this the right choice after a stressful day.

Sparklemn Great review! Can‘t wait to read this one. Hope tomorrow is a better day! 2w

There aren‘t many writers of nonfiction whose books are automatically added to my TBR but Patrick Radden Keefe definitely tops that list. This collection of previously released articles was great on audio. I was barely finished with the first one before I was recommending this to all of the audiobook lovers I know.

I liked this book but I didn‘t love it the way that I hoped to. I think my expectations were too high after how much I adored Hamnet. The writing was gorgeous and the story largely compelling but I just wasn‘t enraptured and found the ending disappointing. A pick but this won‘t make my list of favorites for the year.

The Colony | Audrey Magee

I am not sure what I could possibly add to all that has already been said about this book… an English painter heads to an Irish island and is annoyed to learn he isn‘t the only visitor when a French linguist arrives. Art, identity, and colonialism and a book I wish had made the Booker shortlist but I am glad you all convinced me to try.

House in the Orchard | Elizabeth Brooks
post image
Pickpick

When a widow inherits a house from her late husband's Aunt Maude she is happy to have a space in which to raise her son. She can't understand her father-in-law's refusal to see it as option. Her first night in the house she finds a diary started by young Maude that may hold the answers. A story that grabbed me with the sinister seeming house and tale spun by Maude of a girl facing great loss. But is she a reliable narrator? Very much enjoyed this.

Small Things Like These | Claire Keegan
post image
Pickpick

In spite of the slim page count Keegan creates such a vivid character in Furlong, the kindhearted father of five daughters who works hard to provide for his family and helps out his neighbors when he can. It is Christmas time and money is tight for everyone when he stumbles on something that he knows isn‘t right, even though everyone around him seems to be ignoring it, it eats at him. Slim but satisfying and a story that will linger in my mind.

Anna is living alone now that her daughter is an adult and she has separated from her cheating spouse. Adrift and searching for her identity she discovers that the father she never knew is not only still alive, he‘s the former president of an African country. Anna sets out to meet him and learn about who he is, his country, and who she is in relation to both. There was a lot to delve into but I found myself impatient with the pacing and with Anna.

Ship Wrecked | Olivia Dade

I loved Peter and Maria so much. After having a one night stand that ends with one of them ghosting the other, they wind up cast as two characters stranded on an island together for years as they yearn for each other. Life quickly resembles art. Lots of tenderness and desire but what I appreciated most was how often I laughed out loud at their banter at every press conference. Sad to see this series end but cannot wait for what Dade writes next.

The Long Call | Ann Cleeves
post image
Pickpick

The first book in Cleeves‘ new series, when a body is found on the same day as Matthew Venn‘s father funeral the two events force him to unexpectedly deal with his past. The mystery was solid and filled with interesting characters. After being a little more lukewarm about Vera than most seem to be I really liked Venn and am excited to read more in this series.

Crinoline_Laphroaig I loved this book! As someone who grew up in a Cult, I think Ann Cleeves really captured that awkwardness in social settings even though you are a capable grown up. 1mo
MrsK This new series is excellent! Have you picked up the latest Venn yet…The Heron‘s Cry? Also excellent! 1mo

Fortunes of Jaded Women | Carolyn Huynh
post image
Pickpick

A Vietnamese family cursed to have only daughters who will then be unlucky in love, but generations later hope finally comes from a fortune teller. At first none of Duong women seem in the place to find happiness or even define what happiness would look like for themselves. Funny and smart, I wanted to throttle the characters but just as often wanted to hug them tight, although I would likely be hit by an orange if I even tried either. Out 9/6

Oh this was fascinating and infuriating- the greed and determination in three generations of the family that spawned the opiate crisis. The Sacklers love putting their names on museum wings and buildings but refuse to own up to their culpability in the thousands of lives lost because of their shady dealings. Glad I finally got this one off of the TBR because it was terrific.

This was the last of Kearsley‘s books on my TBR which is rather sad. All of the historical detail I have come to love in the story and mystery surrounding one woman‘s life after she is orphaned at a young age at leaves her home. The twist didn‘t work for me at all but I otherwise enjoyed it.

For the first half of this book I was totally enchanted. I loved Leta who takes self-sacrifice a little too seriously in her quest to keep her brother safe. I was enthralled with the creepy setting and the dark mystery at its center. Then things just stalled and got increasingly repetitive. I grew bored quickly. Doubt I will pick up the sequel.

A friend loaned me this book and when I returned it to her she asked if it made me angry. It certainly had. Reading about people‘s lives destroyed because of bias and injustice made my temper flare. But More than anything I was also so inspired by Brittany K. Barnett and the work she has done to free those serving unfair sentences. Her dedication and tirelessness (I am not sure when she finds time to sleep) are awe inspiring.

Upright Women Wanted | Sarah Gailey

Feeling out of step with the world Esther runs away hoping to join the Librarians so that they can teach her to be a more upright citizen. Instead she learns that that there is more to the world and herself than she previously thought and that she is not so alone in being who she is. A dystopian western set in the near future, this bite sized tale was just the palate cleanser I needed. Reading this in our current political climate packs a punch.

Three young women who couldn‘t seem more different fall into and out of friendship while working as codebreakers at Bletchley Park. After the war is over two of them are asked to help the third with a life or death situation. Love, war, loss, and betrayal, and three smart women strong enough face it all. This was a terrific book with rich characters and twists and turns that made me want it to never end.

Typically I am big Russo fan but this one mostly missed the mark for me. There are moments that hit home with his usual devastating accuracy but overall I found the characters paper thin and hard to care about. Glad I read it but I am also glad this wasn‘t the first of his books I have read.

Perfect vacation read- funny, fast paced, and totally implausible. Romantic suspense author Finlay is mistaken for a hit man when overheard discussing her new book with her agent. Finlay is the least likely assassin but she has a stack of bills that need paying and the need for inspiration for her overdue novel. A fun read that I inhaled. My sister‘s dog, Pickles, was much less impressed about being a model.

On vacation this week hanging out at my sister‘s house with my dad while she takes her kids camping and taking advantage of having a backyard to read in. Another engrossing read from Kearsley, two time periods with equally strong heroines- Sara who is working to crack the code and translate the diary Mary wrote during her adventures helping Jacobites. I skimmed some of the fairytales but otherwise this ranks amongst my favorites by the author.

Somehow this was my first Straub which seems strange to me. There is a time travel aspect to this book but really it is about a daughter‘s love for her father, the difficulty of facing losing a parent and wishing we had appreciated the time we had with them more. This hit me in the feels with both of my parents aging in ways that have totally redefined our relationships.

The Two Lives of Sara | Catherine Adel West

Sara is an unmarried mother in the 1960s who has fled to Memphis hoping to leave her past behind. She wraps her heart in barbed wire to keep people out and avoid the pain that comes from caring. Her new friends begin to creep past her defenses but this is not really a story about the healing love of a tight knit community. It is about love and pain and trauma and how people cope and how they don‘t. This book stung me but will also stay with me.

Historical fiction about a girl who gets herself admitted to an asylum to help save her recently committed sister and finds the conditions not as advertised and that many of the women there were not admitted because they were insane. An interesting read although I didn‘t care much for Charlotte‘s backstory especially her romance. The ending was a bit too tidy for me but overall I enjoyed this.

Burnt Shadows: A Novel | Kamila Shamsie

A book that starts with the dropping of the atomic bomb in Nagasaki, ends in the US after 9/11, and touches on Indian partition in the middle. I got swept away in the grand scale of the story but Shamsie manages to make it all feel personal as well, told through the eyes of two families each with their own strengths and prejudices. The final stretch started lagging for me but the end more than made up for it. I found this to be a powerful read.

Could this book have been any more charming? Likely not. A quartet of residents of a retirement community who like to get together and attempt to solve cold murder cases find themselves with a current murder to solve.

This is now definitely one of my favorites of Kearsley‘s books. I loved how it tied to a couple other of her books. If I were to give a straight summary of the plot it wouldn‘t seem like much really but somehow I was drawn in by the search for the history of the carved firebird said to be the treasured gift from a Russian queen. Only a couple more unread books by Kearsley on my shelves and I will be so sad when I have read them.

This book made my blood boil more than I thought it would with the rampant sexism that main character Elizabeth Zott endures. There is so much to love in this book from some of the most memorable characters including the much lauded Six-thirty. Reading all of the Litsy reviews I questioned how great a character a dog could really be. Answer- pretty freaking great. This wasn‘t quite the light hearted romp of a read I was expecting. It was better.

I really enjoyed this book about two women trying to defy expectations and forge a path for themselves, one as a spy during World War I and the other as a young, unmarried woman looking for answers about her missing cousin. I had to put the book down a few times to calm myself when I was worried about what was about to happen so I was clearly emotionally invested. Happy to find a new to me historical fiction author I am excited to read more from.

A teenage boy writes letters to a judge to give his testimony about a crime but enjoys writing so much that he tells the judge the story around the story- about his half sister who is determined to have her revenge on a panther and the hunt she drags him on along with two men they fall in with along the way. It is a western but don‘t be put off if westerns aren‘t usually your thing. Ben‘s voice and his sister‘s determination make for quite a tale.

Told in two alternating storylines, one about a woman hired to run a soon to be open historic home as a museum and the the other about two of the home previous inhabitants during the Seven Year War, I found myself bored more than once. Neither the history nor the romances had me enthralled.
