Things You Save in a Fire | Katherine Center
Pickpick

This is my 2nd book I have read by K. Center. I enjoyed the journey of Cassie and to read her experience as a firefighter & EMT. The Epilogue gave a nice summary of everything that happened. No loose ends were not tied up.

GondorGirl I enjoyed this one. I like how the main character of this one references 8mo

Stephanie Plum 30 years old, Joe Morelli cop age 32, Grandma Mazur 72 years old. Rex the hamster. I enjoyed this book for its style of writing and the bounty hunter looking for Kenny Mancuso & 24 coffins. This book focused on the case yes but also on her family, love interest and hamster.

jewright These books always make me laugh. Number 25 is my favorite. 9mo

The Plot | Jean Hanff Korelitz

4 out 5 stars. WOW!!! I was hooked from the first chapter. I liked the present day tale with the book in between to get a taste of the Crib. Definitely fooled me. Good writers borrow, great writers steal—T.S.Eliot (but possibly stolen from Oscar Wilde)

Tom Lake: A Novel | Ann Patchett

So I read this book for BN book club—I would not have been a book I would have just picked up. The author is new to me-the scenery is well described—I understood the Our Town reference. I felt it sort of dragged at the end but then there was some peaks of the story at the end that were interesting. Overall nice family story. 3.5 out 5 stars

Demon Copperhead: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver
post image
Pickpick

This was a long and eventful journey of Damon Fields. The read was never boring or dragging. Kingsolver wrote a wonderful book about poverty & how it affects kids growing up. When I got to chapter 30 and it was all positive I was hoping the book to end but I was only half way thru the book. The last couple chapters were fantastic. Chapter 64 was what I expected & hoped for for Damon (and Angus).

Good amount of characters in this dysfunctional family set in Cape Cod 2016. I think the beginning and middle was great—-at the end I see how the author ended it softly(can‘t think of another word). Not satisfied with ending. 3/5 stars

The Paris Apartment | Lucy Foley

I enjoy this author‘s work—-this was a good read. I enjoyed the story but it slightly dragged….slightly. That being said I would recommend the read if you like this author. 3.5/5 stars

tpixie I‘m heading to Paris in September ( woot!) Do you think this is real creepy? I‘ve been reading book set in Paris before I go but I‘m wondering on this one if I should wait till afterwards? Paranormal would scare me more than just a regular murder mystery like a James Patterson. I don‘t know why that scares me more than just a regular murder mystery. (edited) 2y

Not what I expected —I thought the lottery would be for something positive.

Soubhiville @Lcsmcat so true! I read this in maybe jr high and it really stays with you! Jackson creeps into the brain and really digs those claws in! 3y
