The Four Winds | Kristin Hannah

Well Kristin Hannah managed to bring tears to my eyes again. This was my DAR chapter‘s book club pick and I think it‘s going to be a great discussion. While fiction, I feel like I learned a good deal about the Dust Bowl and the struggles they faced #booked2022 #weathertermintitle #19822022 #2021 Plus this was my one physical book I wanted to complete this month for #bfc2022

wanderinglynn Yay! 🙌🏻 1w
Cinfhen Great choice!!!!! My library hold for the audio came in yesterday 💕💕💕 1w
Librarybelle I really need to pick this one up - I have a copy through BOTM, so it continuously stares at me from the shelves! 1w

Enjoyed this one. I feel like this is a mix of One by One and The Guest List but I still loved the thrill of the story. A good way to kick of the head! It also checks two challenge boxes! #19822022 #2018 #booked2022 #setinalodge

A fun, light Christmas romance that is to be expected from Macomber! A woman decides to kill her Scrooge neighbor with kindness for the twelve days of Christmas. 14 readathons equals 445 points for #mistletoemaniacs in #wintergames2021 #bookspinbingo #averymerryreadathon #wintercosy #littenlistenaudioathon #averymerrybingo

I wanted to love this one but I had a hard time connecting to the characters. It may be that I haven‘t read the other books in the series, but I couldn‘t pass up on the team read for #mistletoemanics and #wintergames. The overall plot was good and I enjoyed reading a cozy mystery amongst all of the fun, romance Christmas books #bookspinbingo #seriesread #averymerrybingo #averymerryreadathon #wintercosy

MidnightBookGirl It's definitely better if you read the first two in the series!

O how I love to kick off October with this gem! We are actually headed to a pumpkin patch tomorrow, so it was even more exciting to read. This one qualifies for multiple readathons but only took 38 minutes to read, so for now, 25 points for #teamhendrix #scarathlon

So excited for October! I definitely won‘t get to all of these, but it‘s so exciting to put the whole list together. I‘m contemplating retreading Practical Magic and then diving in to the other books in the series that I‘ve never read. Looking forward to a great reading month #scarathlon2021 #teamhendrix #screamathon #bookspin #doublespin #bookspinbingo

I just couldn‘t get into this one. However, I think if the right person would read it, it would be a good book. I really wanted to love it and there‘s a cliffhanger at the end, but I don‘t think my curiosity will ever be strong enough to pick up the next one. Still thankful for #booked2021 for pushing me to read outside my comfort zone #latinxauthor #seriesread #litsyatoz #c

Cinfhen Glad you pushed yourself to try something new….sorry it didn‘t work for you 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I get that. This should‘ve been I‘m wheelhouse and I still didn‘t like it. But some people did and the author has already written a few more in the series. Such is reading! 4mo

Finished this one with my drink in hand before kicking off football season tonight! This book was an emotional rollercoaster. I went from loving it, to hating it and back and forth so many times. It was honestly hard to get through some parts. However, I feel good about the ending and would recommend to someone if they are looking for a book that challenges you to think about your choices. #litsyatoz #i

I was really enjoying this book but then there we two plot twists in the last 40 pages that felt forced. It felt like the author wanted to say a lot of things in very few pages. Not a bad read, just not a great one. Definitely a fast, easy read for #litsyatoz #x and my #doublespin book

Perfect! This picked up right where the first one ended. A little bit of magic, battles, justice and romance. This book alternated between two perspectives, which added a bit more than the first book. I think this series will only be the two books and I think that‘s just fine! Goal two complete for #awesomeaugust! # seriesread

I think what I love most about this book is the strong female lead and that women are rulers in this world. It‘s a refreshing take that isn‘t done as much in media.

I love this series! While keeping me interested with twists and turns, it also just makes me laugh at times. I had to request that my library obtain a copy (and they bought it within a few days!) plus it has fewer reviews than a lot of popular books so I‘m using it for #underrated for #booked2021. As a side note, I stumbled on this series because of a prompt for #booked2020 and am so glad I did. #litsyatoz #f #seriesread

I‘m seeing the Foo Fighters in concert in a few weeks, so this was perfect. She not only tells her stories but also interviews other rockstar moms. A very interesting perspective!

I was really enjoying this for what it was (a romance book for sure) but then there was a blow up with a best friend over a guy and I just couldn‘t. Friends since elementary school and a guy came in and ruined the relationship. I won‘t spoil whether they get over it or not, but regardless of whether they made up or not, I‘m still not a fan of the fight in general. #booked2021 #mustacheonthecover #litsyatoz #r

I first learned about this book when I saw the musical that was based on it. Love the musical and I love this book. This book kept giving me goosebumps for remembering the events of 9/11 plus for reading how kind the people of Gander were to these stranded passengers. An incredible book (and musical)! #booked2021 #relatedto911 #litsyatoz #d #littenlisten #4points

I was recommended this one because I really enjoyed The Guest List and it did not disappoint. A start up tech company is stranded with two workers in a house after an avalanche and mysteriously people keep dying. The chapters bounce back and forth between one of the staff members and one of the coworkers. This was my #bookspin and earned me 29 points for #littenlisten being my total to 69 points!
