Self help isn‘t my thing (only read this for book club), but as an audiobook I didn‘t mind it.

I was feeling artistic today. Very proud of myself for reading 40 books this year. I didn‘t really start reading as an adult until 2020 when the world shut down. And I‘ve increased my read books each year since. This is a really nice feeling, very accomplished. ❤️ 📚

Let me start by saying, this book was beautifully written. I could picture everything easily and I can‘t wait to see the tv show. However, the book just moved too slowly for me, which is why I‘m giving it a “so-so” rating.

Well well well. This was a cute book with some very spicy scenes that I did not expect. Can‘t say I was disappointed tho… the opposite actually. 😈😎💋I‘ll definitely be reading the other two in this series. :)

The last 100 pages had me on edge. Whew child. It was intense. Definitely a good book. Kind of a slow build with some excitement throughout. I sort of saw the twist coming, I like to figure it out before I get to the twist. Good night!

This was October‘s pick for one of my book clubs. I liked it, had some unexpected salacious scenes towards the end of the book and very vivid, sometimes gory details. It‘ll make for an interesting discussion for sure.

"When the world isn't selling what you're looking to buy, you just have to take it upon yourself to cut your own pattern.”

Super cute book. Now I need to go back and read Puddin‘ and possibly Dumplin‘ (but I‘ve already watched this movie so ?).

Anyway, if you‘re looking for a light, cute, quick read, this is a good one.

It Ends With Us | Colleen Hoover
post image
Pickpick

This is my first Colleen Hoover book… it‘s not exactly what I was expecting, given all the hype around this author. I kind of thought this book was a train-wreck, but I also couldn‘t stop listening (audiobook). It reminded me of fifty shades of grey to be honest. Not a terrible read, but didn‘t sell me on this author. I‘m going to read Verity too, so we‘ll see if that changes my opinion of Colleen Hoover.

What?!?!?! This book was something else. Unexpected and a page turner for sure. I will need to reread this book at some point just to make sure I understood everything that happened!

I gave this one a “so-so” because it just kind of drug on for me. I think I might have enjoyed this more if I read it instead of listened to the audiobook. The ending was sweet though.

Don't Cry for Me | Daniel Black
post image
Pickpick

This was a heartfelt letter from a father to his son. It was an emotional read as they had an estranged relationship. The author writes this book as if it was his father writing to him. It‘s how he imagined his father would have written to him, had his father not forgotten things with Alzheimer‘s. This book was good, took me a while to read because I‘ve been in a reading slump, but good nonetheless.

Really fast paced book, definitely prepare yourself for the graphic nature, but really good all in all. I wouldn‘t exactly call this a thriller, more like a graphic drama I guess. It was good though.

Debated on giving this a pick or so-so rating and went with so-so. This audiobook was okay, I liked the ending and didn‘t mind that it was predictable, but all of the lives and options the main character had for her life got jumbled for me. I wanted to like it more, just found it lack luster.

Enjoyed listening to this one. If you can get past bad “country” accents, it‘s a good story of women empowerment and resilience in the 1930‘s. Also based on a true events, so that‘s cool.

Really enjoyed listening to Becoming, and especially loved that it was read by Michelle Obama. This book gave me insights that I hadn‘t known or thought about, and honestly made me miss the days when she was First Lady. Definitely recommend, even if you don‘t agree with her politics.

Another great thriller/mystery to add to my list. I enjoyed the twists and turns in this one more than I thought I would. Just when I was starting to figure things out, something else came and surprised me again! Definitely recommend this one if you like twists and turns that you don‘t see coming… for miles and miles!

Listened to this audiobook and as much as I enjoyed it, it also frustrated me to no end. lol. The misogyny in the fire department was just so much, but the good moments made up for it. Would definitely recommend.

This one was just okay to me. It wasn‘t bad, but also wasn‘t really a favorite. Nice story of friendship over time, just so so for me. I enjoyed the short stories aspect of it, showing me different times in the characters lives over decades.

marleed I was kind of the same way. It‘s an okay story, but not particularly memorable. I‘d wished I‘d chosen The Maid for my botm instead. Actually, I think that was part of my issue - about half way in I started regretting the books I could have chose instead. 11mo
Lizthewiz @marleed same! I thought the short story aspect of this book seemed cool, and I‘ve been trying to get more diverse books. This one just disappointed. 11mo

Wow. What an amazing book. I cried for most of the last 100 pages, so many emotional moments of sadness and joy. I loved seeing the development of all the characters, especially their relationships with one another. Evangeline‘s story of discovering love and the fact that she deserved love was so moving. 10 out of 10 would recommend the read.

“Let go of the life you‘ve planned and accept the life that‘s waiting for you.” Read this book in 2021, but have since discovered Litsy and wanted to share. This quote spoke to my soul and maybe it will speak to you as well. ❤️ I loved this book so much. You can feel the relationship struggles throughout but love and forgiveness win in the end.
