Continuing my WWI reading with a 550+ page book on what led to the outbreak.

5/5 stars. Well researched, great storytelling, and a fresh perspective on the topic of WWI. Highly recommend!

I just finished Part 1 and I think I have found my new favorite history writer.

One Wish | Robyn Carr

2.5/5 stars. Started slowly, but got a strong middle that drew me in, then it fell into the typical contemporary romance pattern that felt over the top.

My Sunday read. Nice to see Italian immigrants and Italian-American families in a historical romance set in America!

Island Girls: A Novel | Nancy Thayer

3.5/5 stars. An easy, fun beach read to go with the heatwave the UK has been experiencing this past week.

Wonderment In Death | J. D. Robb

After finishing two novels, I wanted something short. Another spin with Lt Eve Dallas sounded good.

I always love spending time in South Cove with Jill and the gang. Needed more page time spent on the mystery and less with Jill‘s staffing issues. At least I‘m all caught up...for now.

Three Sisters | Susan Mallery
Mehso-so

I enjoyed reading about Deanna and Boston, but Andi‘s arc was over the top nonsense. Not as good as the first book, but good enough to read the third and final book in the series.

2.5/5 stars. Not recommending unless you really really really love dry as dust history writing or you have a deep need to know more about a few Rush-Americans. Took me 8 weeks to read through this book.

In my defense, I was left unsupervised in a library- I have four more coming to me via ILL. Happy Spring Break for mommy!

It's in His Kiss | Jill Shalvis

3/5 stars. I like Shalvis‘ writing but too many sex scenes bloated the story.

After a lackluster month of reading, I‘m ending March on a high note. This was a great small town contemporary romance I picked up on OverDrive.

35/5. You have to be a big military history buff to enjoy this. But a worthwhile endeavor and useful if you need primary sources from the Great War for academics.

2.5/5 stars. Didn‘t have the same punch that the movie had.

Reading this for 2018 Pop Sugar Challenge prompt “book made into a movie you have seen already”. The movie was done by Disney and stars Eric Bana and Chris Pine. I picked the YA version because I didn‘t want to read about boat specs.

A Wrinkle in Time | Madeleine L'Engle
Mehso-so

3/5 stars. I liked most of it, Meg was too annoying to connect with and that ending was an anti-climax. But I‘m eagerly awaiting the movie because there is a great story here.

RaimeyGallant I'm on the fence about adding this one to my tbr. 2y

Dear Vera,
You‘re at a 12 and we need you at a 4. Thanks.

review

3.5/5 stars. There was a lot of good stuff, like little known stuff about the war and UK life. However, one chapter had no use or connection to the war or the survivors and was completely useless. It was titled “Hope” and was about two wealthy women who were unhappy in their marriages so they had affairs.
