#BOTM I really enjoyed the beginning of this book. It was engaging and had me wanting to see how this very unique plot unfolds. Slowed for me mid book and became pretty predictable. I did enjoy the different quotes from each chapter though!

Started with a bit of an eyeroll with the falling in love within a minute of seeing someone on the bus platform 😂 BUT definitely more complex than I expected and I enjoyed it. Teared up at a few parts even!

LoverOfLearning I enjoyed it for the most part but I finished it wanting more. More intimacy and more character development. Idk. I'd read it again though. 2mo

I was really looking forward to it but turned out to be such a disappointment. This book was not good... not much else to say. 😂

Daisy Jones and The Six | Taylor Jenkins Reid
Pickpick

There are so many different layers to the story. Of course, the struggle of addiction, love, societal roles, etc but what struck me was the difference of perception of a sitution and how they were personally affected. Reid was able to weave this story and character development through an interview styled writing. It flowed beautifully and I was able to become invested in the characters and understand their viewpoint of what was occurring.

The Age of Light: A Novel | Whitney Scharer

#BOTM I was excited about my monthly pick. I do not know much about Lee Miller or Man Ray. Overall, I enjoyed the book. I would get bogged down at times with the photography descriptions. It is not all ritz and glamour of Paris in the 20s. There is a sadness that I am left with for Lee after I reflect on the story.

I visit the Biltmore every spring with my bestie so I have been looking forward to this read! It did not disappoint! I truly enjoyed the story in itself and I always enjoy a novel based on an amazing woman for her time. Also, Fowler accomplished another novel that captured the spirit and determination of a public figure that tends to be sensationalized.

The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller
post image

My January books. Really enjoyed my #BOTM, The Night Tiger. The Song of Achilles was a Christmas present form @maleahrae so it carried over into January. I had to put it aside for a few weeks because I got mad at Achilles 😂 What a beautiful story and beautiful way to wrap it up. Madeline Miller deserves all of her praises!

cathygee It is so good. ❤❤ 13mo
maleahrae Yay!! I'm glad you liked it! 13mo

Didn't get a snow day, surprise surprise! Finished this during my lunch today. Quick read, but man, it is a hard one. I actually loved the writing style but it is definitely not for everyone.
