Definitely not my typical genre but wow I really enjoyed this book! From the action to the escalation of the story to the romantic side of things it was just wonderful. I loved Fayre and what a strong character she continued to be throughout the story. I‘m excited to continue reading this series!

The Berlin Girl | Mandy Robotham

Wow! Amazing novel! It started out a bit slow but honestly you needed that. I loved Georgie & her passion to prove herself as a budding young journalist amongst her mostly male peers. She was naive which in a foreign country on the brink of war made quite the interesting tale. I could hardly put the book down from the 50% mark. I loved how the ending wrapped up, one of the best endings I‘ve read this year!

Finally able to finish this book (it returned to the library before I could finished the last 20%). I really loved going back into this world and the OASIS. I loved the excitement and page turning action of this book. I also liked the great ending that tied up things nicely (I don‘t believe there will be another, and shouldn‘t be).

While this books description pointed to things during the war the reality wasn‘t the case. Though parts of the book took place during the war the main storyline of between Ruby & Stevie didn‘t.I loved the mousey character of Ruby, she just pulled on your heartstrings and you wanted such good things for her. And that shocker of an ending! Wow!

I absolutely love this series! It was so good to get back to the Isle and reconnect with my favorite characters. I feel like in this installment Lily is faced with a huge amount of issues and this time she really has to face them alone. Between personal problems with her father to saving a nation and then saving the world this book was a definite page turner!

I feel in love with Lila & Sandrine! Two different women whose stories you follow from the beginning to the ending of the Nazi occupation in Paris. Both had completely different experiences & it was interesting to see how their paths in a way crossed. Both worked for the resistance and had to work with/for the enemy. This kept me on my toes at times & melted my heart at other times.

I absolutely loved this story. Emily was such a sweet character who you couldn‘t help but love. From her daily struggles as a wartime nurse to having to deal with the Spanish flu pandemic you could see the parallel to nurses today. The biggest loop was with the return of her fiancé Lewis and the surprises that come with him.
It was very difficult at times to put this book down & I felt it ended way to quickly.

I really enjoyed this book. It started out a bit slow but quickly became difficult to put down. I loved the two stories that had you in the past and recent present. Although the love interest Kat had in my opinion was a little far fetched and wasn‘t necessary. But overall I loved this book and the reveal it had at the end! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lana's War: A Novel | Anita Abriel

Beautiful story! Told from Lana‘s perspective, which I love books that are told from a single perspective. What is the most tragic day in her life ends up propelling her into a life she would have never expected for herself as a resistance spy. Lana is such a wonderful character who reminds me of myself being strong, independent & a little stubborn at times. Highly recommend this for WWII historical fiction lovers!

This was a captivating novel right from the beginning. Taylor‘s story has you in present time with her secretly trying to find out about a mysterious woman who is in a picture with her deceased father. Ava‘s beautiful adventure takes you on a trip on the Titanic. The twist and turns both stories take you on keeps your curiosity peaked. And it all came to a beautiful ending. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

It‘s too bad there won‘t be more. 2y

This book was definitely not what I was expecting but Was pleasantly surprised! I love the character Kat. She is so true to life & I loved how bold & fearless she is with all the trouble her little sister causes. Barrett (sigh) what a wonderful strong male character for Kat to spar with & eventually fall head over heels for. Such wonderful characters set in the backdrop of Nazi occupied Paris.

This was a beautiful book about heartbreak, love, loss and finding out the truth years later. Such a beautiful story with both the present day and WWII pieces that are captivating. You had such strong emotions for both story lines that you really felt what each character was going through. I will definitely be reading more from this author.

I have been a little torn over this book. While on one hand I loved learning all about Coco Chanel but I felt at times it was a bit lengthy in places. Coco is a wonderfully strong woman who despite very humble beginnings becomes quite a force in the fashion world. Using her intellect & status she was able to comfortably live in occupied France right in the nest of many powerful Nazis.

Truly a beautiful novel seamlessly combining a modern time with the past. I was so invested in this whole story that I didn‘t want it to come to a close! From the twist to the mixing with the modern times this historical fiction was beautiful. My heart was racing at times for the WWII characters Irene and Cordelia, other times my heart broke for them. One of my favorite WWII books lately!

Beautiful book told mostly through letters between friends during the war. The letters start out so hopeful that the war will end by Christmas as many newspapers has predicted at the beginning of WWI. But as the years go on you see the hope falter and the strength of the friends as people die and the war presses on. It‘s a beautiful book that definitely pulls on your heart strings!

I loved that the story took place in Venice which is not a popular location for WWII historical fictions so it was wonderful to read about the war from another place. Overall I loved how everything came together at the ending and there was definitely a surprise!

The Maggie Hope series has always been one of my favorites! This new addition to the series is definitely no exception! It was fabulous! Pure Maggie! I love her quick wit and strong voice! I loved the ending and how it‘s kind of left up in the air to what adventures that Maggie will face next! Whatever the choice is I‘ll be eagerly anticipating the next installment!

Spy | DANIELLE. STEEL

Pickpick

Probably one of the most through books I‘ve ever read starting in WWII. I absolutely loved following Alex from the time she was ‘presented‘ to the royal court to all throughout her life as an SOE agent and eventually an MI6 agent, to finishing up with her in her 80‘s! What a fantastic adventurous life! I hardly put it down! Definitely a strong five stars! Full review goodreads.com/Chrysta23

SaturnDoo I have this on my TBR. Glad to see you enjoyed. Danielle Steele used to be a favorite author but in the last 10+ years I quit reading her books because they seemed to be recycled stories from her earlier works. 🤷‍♀️ maybe it's just me. 3y
SassyBookworm @SaturnDoo this is my first Danielle Steele book, I really enjoyed how it went through her whole life basically rather the a short bit. 3y

The Starless Sea | Erin Morgenstern

This was a beautifully written book. Though it‘s definitely not my favorite genre I did enjoy the beauty of it. There were several stories that came together and the world in which Morgenstern created was one you definitely wanted to see for yourself.

Absolutely loved this audiobook! It‘s rare that I read a book from one person‘s perspective and when I do I always seem to love it more! Audrey is a pure modern woman who is living life just as she wants, flying planes for the military and saving up for her air field.Truly a fascinating story about women who did men‘s work and not recognized until several years later!

Hope you all got to catch the pilot episode tonight! I thought it was fabulous! I am now eagerly awaiting the next episode! I was also pleasantly surprised by the slightly creepy factor 😏 If you have watched it yet make sure that you do! Let me know what you think!

GingerAntics I‘m going to have to wait until the whole thing is released, so I can binge watch it during the preview period. 3y
Lidia I did watched it tonight! I‘m a big fan of the books and hope they do them justice. The first chapter was good. I really liked James McCavoy as Lord Asriel. 3y
emmaturi I really enjoyed it! Good choices in actors for each character! 3y

Laughterhp Should I wait until I‘ve read all the books to watch it? I‘ve only just recently read the 1st book and don‘t want to spoil things for me! 3y
Caroline2 I really enjoyed. I just wish the BBC would put the whole series on iplayer so I could binge the lot!! 😆 3y
LibrarianRyan I watched 1/2 and fell asleep. I loved what i saw so far. I am going to finish it later tonight. 3y
SassyBookworm @GingerAntics I definitely understand that I want to see e next episode sooo bad!!! 3y
SassyBookworm @Lidia yes I thought he played a fabulous Lord Asriel! I need to read the other books since I‘ll I‘ve read was The Golden Compass as a kid so I think a reread is definitely in order! 3y
SassyBookworm @emmaturi I agree the actors are fabulous! And I loved the cute little guy who plus Roger! 3y
SassyBookworm @Laughterhp I have only read the first book and it was just a small ways in so I think you‘ll be fine, I plan on rereading book 1 and actually reading the others in the series 3y
SassyBookworm @Caroline2 Amen to that! I love being able to binge watch stuff bc the anticipation til the next episode is killing me! 3y
SassyBookworm @LibrarianRyan my oldest wants to watch it so I‘ll get to rewatch it with her! I‘m so excited! 3y
LibrarianRyan @SassyBookworm Yeah. I love this book. I wonder if they will do a book a season? Even though from the first 30 minutes I saw things that were not in the original book that might be in the Book of dust. But I have not read that yet so I don't quite know. 3y
GingerAntics It looks really good...and it‘s not like I don‘t know what happens. lol 3y
SassyBookworm @LibrarianRyan I need to do a reread it‘s been soooo long ago when I read it. A book a season would be good but that means only 3 seasons 😔 3y
LibrarianRyan @SassyBookworm not if they include the book of dust series. And they could do what GoT did and go past the books. Not that that was the worlds best idea. 3y
SassyBookworm @LibrarianRyan ohhh I had no clue there was an extra book! I really need to get more in the know 🤦🏼‍♀️ 3y
LibrarianRyan @SassyBookworm Yes there is a new spin off series. The book of dust starts before Golden Compass, but is mostly about life after the original series (I think I have not read it yet, and the newest book is the Secret Commonwealth. 3y

This was an amazingly insightful autobiography by Elton John! From very humble beginnings to becoming a legend and all the crazy things in between! What a roller coaster of a life he has had. It was amazing read and of course so neat with all the name drops of so many famous artist!

Really enjoyed this series! This was quite the climatic conclusion that was building up throughout the first two, yet the epilogue gave you a sense that she may not be finished just yet with this series. I have loved the twist on the classic Peter Pan, definitely a childhood favorite, & enjoyed watching the development of the characters throughout this series! Hopefully another book is in the works!
