A tale on the movie industry during WWII. It was witty, but I did not like the plot.

This read was really slow getting to the point at first. What kept me going was the humor. #doublespin @TheAromaofBooks

This book took me forever to finish because it was so real and it hits on a lot of topics that have been big political issues lately. But I was still interested.

I can see why Barnes and Noble named this the book of the year for 2022. The cover is deceiving, because it makes you think of a romantic comedy. Once you delve into the first 10 chapters you realize that it is so much more. It is a woman revolution set in the 1960s.

The Wilderwomen | Ruth Emmie Lang
Mehso-so

This read is about a road trip between sisters looking for their mother who had disappeared 5 years ago. It was slow in parts, and somethings seemed a little disconnected. This could have used a little a bit more editing, but it was an interesting idea. Thanks to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for this read.

Manhunt | Gretchen Felker-Martin
Pickpick

I read this in prep for Tournament of Books and as my bookspin. It is a dystopian horror story of trans characters hunting feral men and harvesting their organs. It was very disturbing and raw. The author definitely did not hold back. #bookspin #tournamentofbooks @thearomaofbooks

My January #bookspin list. I have so many book challenges/games this year. I do Litwits and Reading Ravelry on FB. I am also going to try to read more award lists. I am also going to try to get my backlog of NetGalley and BOTM reads down. @TheAromaofBooks

I liked the idea of seeing how we would treat each other if we were a different race, but could not connect to the plot.

This read threw me for a loop. At first I thought that I had read it or something very similar before. Then the plot went in a direction that I was not expecting.

The Every: A Novel | Dave Eggers
Pickpick

Dave Eggers‘s writing is so realistic that it took me 6 months to digest and finish this book of how technology is running our lives. This is the second in The Circle series.

The Q | Amy Tintera
Pickpick

Amy Tintera's The Q is a timely story about a disease getting out of control and requiring the quarantining of large part of Texas. Government has broken down and the Q is divided into sectors. When a U.S. Senator's prodigal son is illegally dropped into the Q after being kidnapped, readers are taken on a thrill ride through the territories to return him to the outside world. Along the way we get a good mixture of gun fights and romance.

Persephone Station | Stina Leicht
Pickpick

3.5stars. It‘s an interesting lesbian space opera. It was a little out of my wheelhouse. I needed the change from dystopian. It includes the owner of a bar that caters to criminals and an ex- marine and a head assassin. Liked the detail to action.

Lost Children Archive | Valeria Luiselli
Mehso-so

This was an interesting story about a family traveling across country. The father is looking for sounds of the Apaches. The mother is looking for information on refugee children from Mexico. The kids are there for the ride since it is summer. It was slow at first, but it became interesting as there was explanation of the contents of the boxes that they had.

The Measure | Nikki Erlick
Pickpick

This debut starts with all the characters and everyone in the world receiving a box with a lone string inside. Each string are of different lengths. It doesn‘t take long for the world to realize that the length of the string is the length of the recipient‘s life. Soon after there is prejudice against those with short strings. This read real gives me the feelings of the political climate of 2020.

This is a interesting story about a coroner in Canada that is on a case that turns dangerous. I‘m not sure how I feel about the character‘s commentary about the details about her surroundings.

This book is the third in a series. A journalist finds a story about two missing girls found dead in a fire. There is a survivor from the fire and it turns out to be the son of the journalist. Now she needs to find out if he is responsible for murder. It was really interesting. Love Barton‘s writing. Hope there are more to this series.

Firestarter | Stephen King

Stephen King is always great. This is a story about a government experiment gone wrong and test subjects just trying to survive. The remains of a family with special abilities are on the run for their life. This really gives me Under The Dome type of feelings.
