What first got my attention was the beautiful cover, what kept my attention was a great story. This is a fast paced, exciting adventure story-not my usual genre.. As I read, I kept thinking, I understand why this is being made into a movie.

Reese_Pearly.Pages It‘s going to be a movie?! 🤩🤪🤩🤪 I hoped. I love this book so much. I almost bought the hardcover too!! 2y
BookBoggart Daaaaamn they don't waste time. This book is only 5 months old and going to be a movie already! I think they've just run our of good materiel. Lol 2y
MyNightstandRunnethOver @BookBoggart I think you are right! 2y

MyNightstandRunnethOver @Reese_Pearly.Pages it really was a great book. And it is tagged with Legacy of Orisha, #1, which means we have more books to look forward to. 2y
Reese_Pearly.Pages @BookBoggart They have! lol Trying to grab what they think people will want to see. We‘re tired of the same things in the box office. Hope they don‘t mess it up with the casting. 2y
Reese_Pearly.Pages @MyNightstandRunnethOver I‘m so happy. I was burned out on series, but I‘d read the hell out of this one. 2y

Bitter sweet. It's completed but then again it is completed....now what. Really enjoyed reading them with my son. Maybe The Hobbit. Suggestions?

Aurora0044 Hunger Games maybe? 2y
Lindy How old is your son? The Hobbit is a good follow-up to HP. 2y
MyNightstandRunnethOver Not yet. I tried. He isn't emotionally mature enough to deal with the darkness. His mental and emotional capacities don't match yet. But it is definitely on the list down the road. He wasn't thrilled with all the loss of life in this Harry Potter. 2y

MyNightstandRunnethOver @Lindy he is almost 10. 2y
Aloisi_tribe The Hobbit would be a good choice although I‘d stay away from Lord of the Rings for a few years. The Chronicles of Narnia would also be a good series. My daughters read them when they were all in the 10-11 year range and really enjoyed them. 2y
MyNightstandRunnethOver Thanks @Aloisi_tribe good suggestiond 2y
Foragingfantasy What about Charlie Bone? It's a fun series, I have read a couple with my 9 year old. 2y
Foragingfantasy Also maybe Redwall or Percy Jackson. (edited) 2y
benchley1 Second Percy Jackson and various offshore of, or Artemis fowl 2y
benchley1 *offshoots 2y
MyNightstandRunnethOver @Foragingfantasy haven't tried those. Will add to my list. 2y
MyNightstandRunnethOver @benchley1 oh yes forgot about Artemis Fowl 2y
Lindy @MyNightstandRunnethOver I second @foragingfantasy‘s recommendations. Also suggest trying a classic like Pinocchio, followed by a modern retelling 2y
Bourriquet76 We loved Percy Jackson, Red Pyramid, Mysterious Benedict, Peter and the Starcatchers. I just finished Morrigan Crow and gave it to my son. 2y

I struggled in deciding on what to say in review of this book and then I read a description as "you will like it a whole lot and loathe it a little bit at the same time.". A very apt description. It would be great for book club, lots of angles and discussion points BUT not for the feint of heart. Lots of raw language and writing about the fluidity of gender and sexuality.

There is a book equivalent to wanting to eat cake and not vegetables, it's called Chick Lit. This story contains all the neurotic characters we've come to expect from the authors from across the pond. Fast, enjoyable read for when you want a mental vacation.

theresidentromantic Chick lit is such a guilty pleasure even for someone like me, who mostly reads romance novels and #kindlecrack lol I love Molly Harper but I need it in very small doses. 2y
therealdealbeall I picked this one up on clearance at Barnes and Noble a while back since I've enjoyed her Sophie Kinsella novels. Sometimes you just need to add a little fun into your reading life, and she's great for that. I liked reading her stuff in college when I wasn't the mood to read more serious books on top of stuff for class. 😉 2y

I had the benefit of having low expectations when I read this book. A fellow Litten had rated the book so so and said it read more like a screenplay. I read the book anyway because I am a huge Madmen fan. She was right. I found the story choppy but enjoyed it none the less.

Jensol77 Later in you find out that his dad was mean to him and local boys picked on him. No excuse for him being an @$$. 2y
Jensol77 People fought the evil of the Nazis on so many fronts. Just an awful time in history. 2y
MyNightstandRunnethOver @Jensol77 absolutely. The context of the quote wasn't that everyone is evil during war. It was more about those who do evil during war- were they evil already or did the war make them that way. We could definitely say Alfred wasn't born that way but it was how he chose to respond to his mistreatment. 2y
Jensol77 @MyNightstandRunnethOver war definitely makes you do things/be someone you never thought yourself capable. Alfred annoyed me but I'm just looking at the other side... he was bullied and now that he was a Nazi, he had the opportunity to have some power(even if in his own mind). Had he been a better person, he could have used his Nazi position to do good. 2y
MyNightstandRunnethOver @Jensol77 yes, I see your point. 2y

Blew my mind! Usually books with a lot of hype dont live up to my expectation. This one exceeded them. Would quickly read the rest of Glenn's books but I think I want to ration them so I have a go- to good read when needed. I ration Liane Moriarity the same way. Who are your go-to guaranteed good read authors?

Jhullie Nicci French and Barbara Erskine are 2 that I buy as soon as their new books come out without reading the blurb. (edited) 2y

At first I was going to rate this book as so-so but then I decided that isn't fair. For the type of book it is, it is good. The problem is I was reading it for a challenge and not because I was in the mood for this type of book. This is a cozy whodunit. Think Angela Landsberry if she lived in the English countryside and was a vicar.

SandyW I loved this one and immediately went on to read her other two. Flynn can write, but the characters she creates are not people I would care to have in my life! 2y
ndmedina Read a few pages in the bookstore and was hypnotized! 2y

Just finished. Emotionally heavy. Not what I was expecting but I enjoyed it none the less. It's one of those books I will continue to think about. We probably all can relate to a thing left unsaid.
