Small Great Things | Jodi Picoult

Wow.... just. WOW. This book was SO good. The best book I‘ve read this year, by far! It‘s an eye-opener and it really sends you through a whirl-wind of emotions. I‘d recommend this book to ANYONE. Because, you seriously need to read it... like, now!

Congrats! @Nessavamusic #20k1kGiveaway A book I really want, but don‘t own would be “Us Against You” A Nobel by Fredrik Backman!

Small Great Things | Jodi Picoult

This book is heart-breaking and infuriating, yet so, so eye-opening and I‘m only 31% deep. There‘s definitely going to be some good discussion on this one at book club.

Beneath a Scarlet Sky | Mark T. Sullivan

If you‘re searching a feel-good book this isn‘t it. When you turn the last page, you‘ll have a heavy heart & more than likely, tears in your eyes. However, you will have a better understanding of WW2 in Italy, a better appreciation for our lives, & a more grateful heart. This heart-wrenching, eye-opening story about young Pino Lella will have you experiencing all the emotions. It‘s a historical fiction novel based off a true story. 10/10 ❤️

The Wife Between Us | Sarah Pekkanen, Greer Hendricks

I finished this book in 3 days. This is a huge deal considering I hardly ever have time to read. (😩) It was good, easy to follow and left me itching to get to page after page. I even gasped once. However, I feel it lacked the suspense I was hoping for. It wasn‘t SUPER climatic. Still a good story and I loved how it kept me guessing and throwing curveballs at me!

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Hope you're enjoying it here so far 📖💙 11mo

I just finished this one. It‘s taken me a bit to read (mostly because I‘ve been so busy) and I‘m torn on how I feel about it. It‘s about a boy with Schizophrenia writing his story about the loss of his brother at such a young age and living with his “disease.” It got really raw and emotional at times. I just didn‘t find myself reaching for it every time I got a free moment. Good read, though.

Caroline2 I felt the same about this one too! 11mo
c.m.reger @Caroline2 Oh, good. Lol Because I felt like I should have liked it more.. glad I‘m not alone 11mo

Has anyone read this one yet?! If so, what‘d you think? I read it over the summer, but wanted to share it here, because there‘s a movie in the making!! I loved this book SO much. It was a fun, easy read that toyed with all my emotions as I tried to put together the puzzle that is Bernadette. I mostly laughed, though. If you‘re looking for something fun, I would recommend this one!

kellyann28 This will definitely make a good movie! 11mo
c.m.reger @kellyann28 have you seen the trailer? 11mo
kellyann28 @c.m.reger I have not! I did know it was going to be a movie though! 11mo

c.m.reger @mcipher Me too! 11mo
monalyisha This is one of the books I LOVE & own. 😉 My book club read it when we were first starting out, about 6 years ago, & it remains one of the only books that, to this day, we‘ve all agreed was *fabulous.* Mostly, we disagree about everything. 😆 It makes for interesting discussions, at least. 🤷‍♀️ 11mo
c.m.reger @monalyisha your book club sounds amazing! My friend and I recently started one and we are going on about 6 months now! I‘ve always wanted to be in a book club.. lol 11mo
monalyisha @c.m.reger I think part of its success is that we don‘t actually meet in-person. It‘s with friends from college, & we‘re scattered all over the country now, so we meet via Google Chat (with separate glasses of wine). There are 6 of us; we each pick 2 books to read per year. It works really well! I‘m proud of us. I‘m a big mood-reader, so it wasn‘t easy to get into the groove! But it helps to keep us in-touch. 11mo
c.m.reger @monalyisha That‘s really an amazing idea! 11mo

Probably my favorite book by Fredrick Backman. (If you haven‘t read any of his novels you need to change that ASAP) I would recommend reading “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She‘s Sorry” by Backman first as Britt was a character in that one. This is about an older lady finally figuring out who she is with the help of a poor, helpless town that loves soccer as much as she loves baking soda. It will pull at your heart strings, guaranteed!

Littlestbookshelf That sounds interesting! 11mo
CoffeeNBooks I loved this book! Ove's still my favorite Backman character and book, though! 11mo
c.m.reger @Littlestbookshelf His writing sucks you in and lets you see through the eyes of his characters. Out of all his books I was the least sure about this one, but it ended up being my favorite. Really good! 11mo
