I really struggled with this book because I kept putting myself in the place of the characters. It was an amazing book and these characters are going to stay with me a long time.

I can‘t get into it for some reason, so I‘m giving up. I don‘t want to waste any more time. I hate bailing.

This was awful. I can‘t believe I finished it.

Jess7 Ughhh ohhh. I‘ve heard a lot of mixed and negative reviews of this book. I bought it as a kindle daily deal a little while ago. 😳 2y
Schuhbox @Jess7 I had too. Without giving anything away, I‘m going to think twice about Reese Witherspoon books. 2y
readherwriteher It wasn‘t good. I hated Amber and found the dialogue over the top (“Please don‘t leave me. Stay with me. The way my sister would have.” 🤮). I almost bailed on it. But I stuck through to the end. It was predictable. Total let-down. 2y

This audio book came in from a hold I had on it. I was so excited but had difficulty with it. There were too many names that I couldn‘t follow on an audio. I returned it and put the written version on hold. I still am excited about this book but I think the written words to be able to refer back to

The Hopefuls: A novel | Jennifer Close

I enjoyed this but it was not what I expected. This book had been on my tbr since it came out but I considered taking it off recently due to the number of moderate to bad reviews I had seen. The main criticism I saw was that the “characters were unlikable”. I disagree. I saw a couple that was young and still figuring things out under a lot of stress and when people (or jobs) don‘t turn out the way you think they will. It was good, not great.

I finished this a few days ago and was going to try to take some pretty picture with the book and yarn. But I've now passed the book on. This is a magical book about sisters who come together to save the family yarn store. I loved it! It reminded me so much of Sarah Addison Allen's Garden Spells which is one of my all time favorites!

I posted about my struggle about reading this but never a review when I finished. This book really made me think. I loved it but didn't look forward to it. I have difficulty describing my feelings about it. But it stuck with me which a good book is supposed to.

Reviewsbylola I am having the same reaction to The Queen of the Night! Once momentum builds up I enjoy good chunks of it but I don't look forward to it. 3y

Ugh! Hated this book! Ditched half way through after fast forwarding through a lot as well! I listened to this and the narrator was awful but the writing was like a textbook too. I'm a sucker for books about ballet and I was excited about it too. So disappointing.

BookishTrish I bailed on the audio too. I'm wondering if it'd work in print. 3y
