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!

I loved this novel! For the last 1/2 I couldn‘t put it down! I had to know what happened! Beautiful story that switched between Austria 1938-39 and Los Angles 1989-91. I‘ve never read a book about a stamp maker before so this was definitely a new perspective on someone who was effected by WWII. I loved how these seemingly different stories beautifully came together! 5 stars 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Gina is one of my favorite authors! She‘s never disappointed me with a book yet! Everything she writes is truly magical! From drawing you in right from the beginning with a murder with 4 confessed killers! Keeping you guessing through out the whole book ‘who done it‘ and the awestruck reveal at just the perfect time! The characters felt like people you know and very relatable on many levels! 5 stars from me!
This book takes you on quite the adventure! I‘m typically a slow reader many times taking a week or two to finish a book...not the case here! I finished this one in 48hrs! I couldn‘t put it down! The cast of characters are not only likable but felt so real. The adventure that you go on with Livy is thrilling, breathtaking and daring! Definitely a 5 star rating from me!

I absolutely loved this book! First off I love all things theatre and old NYC! This novel was a beautiful mixture of both with a wonderful story of fierce friendship and how governmental paranoias can ruin lives and did during the post WWII era for the theatre world. A fabulous mixture of twist along with triumphs and loss made this a 5 star 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟 book for me! Definitely a must read!

A historical fiction must read!

We started this book/course/plan last night with our church LifeGroup. So far it makes some really valid points and made us really look at our money/spending. It‘s definitely a change in thinking process because the word ‘budget‘ just sounds bad, but this puts a positive spin on things. We‘ve made our ‘zero-based budget‘ & will be ready to start this process when our checks hit the bank tomorrow! Hopefully this helps us! Extra money would be nice!
I loved this second installment of this series. Such a fun twist on the classic Peter Pan. I love how the twist continue and the twisted world of Neverland continues to be such a scary wild place. Wendy is starting to grow into her own and find out who she truly is. I‘m so excited to continue on with the next book in this series!

I absolutely loved this conclusion to the Caraval series! It was as beautiful and magical as the first two books and I felt immersed back into the Caraval world. Although the Caraval game was not going on, I honestly didn‘t think it was needed. The story and conclusion were perfect for this trilogy, and it‘s on my top list of series! Most definitely 5 stars 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟

So I always like to check the book selection at my local grocery store, and while I was scanning the books I came across this little gem! Cost at the store $13.15. Looked for it on my #Libby app but unfortunately they didn‘t have it. Checked out my #Hoopla app and I can borrow the audiobook for FREE!!! Love discovering new books!!! Can‘t wait to dive into this one!!!

This was a beautiful yet heartbreaking novel. It‘s goes between a few stories that eventually tie in together but mainly the past character Ines and current character of Olivia/Liv. It‘s everything I love in a historical fiction, action, love, adventure, heartbreak and the enduring human spirit during tough times. Definitely 5 stars from me 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was a beautiful novel about the strained relationship between two sisters during WWII. Going back & forth between their childhood/adolescent memories to their current time of the 1940‘s. You also see the perspectives of two of their close friends & how their lives brought them to their place in the sisters lives. Parts will break your heart & others will have you smiling with pride. 5 starts for me 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
This was a wonderful novel! It‘s a much longer book than what I‘m used to so it took me a while but so worth it! The details the highs and lows for the characters and to find out the majority of them were real people...amazing! I am always amazed at the bravery of so many against such cruelty especially when their actions came with grave consequences. Overall a fabulous WWII historical fiction!

Really enjoyed this audiobook! What an interesting twist on the classic Peter Pan story. I loved how the focus was on Wendy and how little things here and there spoke true to the classic. It was such a different concept of Neverland not being a fun place but rather a place of fear, yet it worked well. Excited to start the next book in this trilogy!

I have found that no matter what Jenny Colgan writes I absolutely love it! This was no exception! Wonderful characters who some are from other books of hers and wonderful new characters you fall in love with. Beautiful descriptions of the Scottish country and a story you can‘t help but love and don‘t want to put down!

I absolutely loved this book! This is my favorite in the series so far! I loved the remote setting & the added fun of Cornish folklore! The sexual tension between Stoker & Veronica is maddening & I love it!! The mystery was wonderfully exciting & kept me guessing. I also loved how it lead right into what is to be the next book in the series (TBR 3/2020). I just can‘t wait! Definitely 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

So I still haven‘t felt 100% after my surgery last Friday. Only worked a 1/2 day yesterday and saw a doctor after work. She took some labwork (normal) and told me to stay home today and rest. So if I have to stay home I might as well snuggle with my baby Penny and read a good book right?!

Finished this wonderful book late last night. I wasn‘t sure that I would really like it as it didn‘t grab me right at first. But when it did I was hooked! Just a beautiful story set in WWII but not really about the war, more about the characters and how past issues can effect them throughout life and effect others. Beautifully written with characters you fall in love with. Great historical fiction!

I was hoping to already have this book finished but my minor surgery really messed me up. I‘ve never had trouble with anesthesia before but this time I was extremely sick coming out of it. To make matters worse my tongue had gotten stuck between the breathing tube & my teeth so my tongue is (still) swollen, it should be better soon. Hopefully now that the dizziness is mostly gone I can read a bit instead of sleeping all the time.
This just came in and I‘m SUPER EXCITED!!! I love Veronica Speedwell she is such a fun sassy character which is exactly what I need right now!
Plus isn‘t that cute on Libby‘s little ribbon it‘s a rainbow 🌈 for Pride month (wonder how long I missed that!) Happy Pride to all my Litsy friends!

Reading by candlelight 🕯 because we had a terrible storm go through our area and have been without power for over 5 hours now! Luckily the rain has cooled things off a bit and we can open the windows! Hopefully our power will be restored soon!

This book was definitely not what I expected especially from the title. I really did enjoy it! I was looking for more what they spoke about in the end which was murder cases and the unfair treatment of blaming the victim as well as topics like rape culture. But it was more about the actual authors themselves than about the topic of murder. I did enjoy the book, but I think I would have enjoyed it much more if I was more aware of the actual topic.
This was a wonderful different perspective on the Titanic tragedy. This book took the perspectives of 3 women 1st class, 2nd class and 3rd class. The focus was more on how the events of that night changed their lives rather than the actual tragedy of the boat skinking being the main point. I loved how all three women were on the same life boat and how they stories all collided several years later.

This is a beautifully written novel. I literally could not put it down. Many books take me days even weeks to read...I read this in two days. Both the main characters Caroline and Celine were such wonderful characters to follow. You could feel their love, passion, heartache, confusion and fears come across the pages so clearly.

I just started this book today and I‘m already over half way through it! (And I‘m typically a slow slow reader, especially this year for some reason, most likely life/depression/life with busy kids/full time job) This book has captured my heart and has me captivated by these two women decades apart. I can‘t wait to see what happens in the last half!

I can‘t believe I‘ve been reading about Maisie Dobbs for 15 books now! Wow! That right there tells you what a wonderful series it is! The American Agent was no exception! I love diving back into London with these characters I‘ve grown to love and feel like I‘m right there experiencing every thing with them. I loved the ending which honestly has me itching for more! One of the best WWI/WWII historical fiction series!
Sooo very glad I bought the new kindle WATERPROOF paperwhite before this vacation!

This is a wonderful historical fiction about Claude & Blanche Azuzello. Claude was the hotel manager for the Ritz Hotel in Paris before, during & after WWII. The story begins with the meeting of Claude & Blanche as their romance was kind of a whirl wind start. The story is told from each of their perspectives & I loved how you would seamlessly flow from each... Full review on Goodreads!

Really enjoyed the conclusion of this series! Still had a lot of good action and adventure that I‘ve come to expect from this series. Also it was wonderful ending to all the characters stories that you‘ve grown to know and love. So I was very satisfied with the ending and it just felt complete. Great series!
