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.
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.
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
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.
He was a funny man.
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.
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 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.
