Daisy Jones & The Six | Taylor Jenkins Reid

Great book! I can definitely see why it's received all the hype that it has, and also why people wonder if it's a real band. I loved the interview style it was written & the little twist with the author interjection near the end. Yes, I feel like this book definitely deserves the praise it has received. I thought including the songs at the end of the book was a really neat idea, as well... Very cool touch. Five star.

Just bought this while Black Friday shopping... I couldn't resist Target's supposed buy two books, get one free deal... Although I overheard a cashier saying what they really do is just take a little bit off the price of each book... 🤷 regardless, I'm excited to start it. I also bought The Water Dancer and The Library Book

marleed Three great books! 1w
perfectsinner Thanks! I can't believe I devoured Daisy so quickly. I'm very much looking forward to reading the others, as well 1w

This book just wasn't for me. I at least finished this one, which I can't say the same for the author's effort Eat, Pray, Love. Gilbert is perhaps just not an author whose works I enjoy. I didn't enjoy this, but since I was able to finish it, I give 2 stars. Into the donation pile it goes.

Giving this a go. I checked it out from the library some time ago & never got around to reading it before it was due back. I wasn't a huge fan of Eat, Pray, Love, so here's hoping I like it better. I've been struggling to pick my next read, so I hope I like it

At the beginning, I didn't really get this book. After a while, though, I began to like it better.

I literally just finished this book, and thus I really have no words to adequately express my thoughts about it! Phenomenal read, well worth the wait! I'm off to buy this the first chance I get. Erin Morgenstern is such a fantastic story-teller. I might even like this better than The Night Circus. If I could rate this 10 stars, I would.

The Invention of Wings | Sue Monk Kidd

Pickpick

I've enjoyed most of SMK's works thus far, and The Invention of Wings is no different in that regard. I highly enjoyed her strong-minded characters, fighting for what's right in this world, Sarah & Nina Grimske, as well as the slaves portions of the book, Charlotte & Handful
She writes of strong minded, female characters, fighting for the injustice and abolition of slavery. Highly recommend!

This is a book for my forever shelf, to keep and reflect on, and re-read whenever I feel the need. I think there's a lot to be learned from this book, and it'll take more than one reading to even try and scratch the surface of these insights and teachings.

I found this at a library sale and was excited to get it, because it'd been on my tbr list for a while, so I snagged it right up. However, I was underwhelmed with the writing and the stories. 😕 Two stars. I'll be donating this to my little free library. I'm glad I didn't pay much, at least.

Two and a half stars. Ground breaking read? It is not. It's a decent read about a twenty-something in the New York restaurant world--- a lot of fucked up relationships with co-workers and a lot of drugs. I've read better books, and I've read worse. This one's pretty middle-of- the-road.

All I can say is, WOW Zafón did it again! That guy is a literary master, in my mind. It was well worth the late hours and headache/eye strain I'll have from devouring the last 300 pages in a matter of hours, tomorrow. I already can't wait to re-read this entire series 💞

BookwormM This is an amazing series 2mo
perfectsinner @BookwormM yes, it is. I'm sad I finished it. It's my new favourite series now. 2mo

The Prisoner of Heaven | Carlos Ruiz Zafon
post image

I'm less than 100 pages in, so I'm trying to reserve judgement, but so far I am thinking that The Prisoner of Heaven will be far less well liked than either Shadow of the Wind or The Angel's Game. I'm not sensing a five star read out of this one.... Which isn't too say that it's 'bad', because it isn't-- but it isn't as good as the first two, for sure. I'm still very much looking forward to finishing the quartet with Labyrinth of Spirits.

I wanted to take a break from Barcelona, Spain, and try to stretch out the Cemetery of Forgotten Books series by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, because I've really enjoyed the first two, and don't want it to be over so soon! However, since nothing else seems to be captivating me at the moment, I'm diving back in to Barcelona, Spain, with Daniel & Bea in The Prisoner of Heaven.

This book is packed with information that could severely be useful for those looking to get in touch with their spirit guides & guardian angels. It has a lot of exercises and meditations to try and help you become acquainted with them. I'm going to keep this book so I can look back & try to incorporate techniques into my own life.

OMG, Zafón has done it again! The Angel's Game, the second in The Cemetery of Forgotten Books series, was just as phenomenal as Shadow of the Wind. 5 star read! I'm so glad I bit the bullet & bought the rest of the books.

perfectsinner I finally bit the bullet & ordered them all from Amazon. I got really, really lucky finding Shadow of the Wind at a used book sale, and knew my odds of finding the rest of the series would be even more of a struggle against odds, so I finally just did it lol 2mo

I bought this on a whim when I was really into historical fiction... I then read a bunch back to back, and as a result, got a bit burned out and this has been sitting on my book shelf for six months. I finally got around to reading it tonight. I wish I had read it sooner, if only to get it out of the way. It was just alright/okay for me. I'll be donating my copy to my little free library, as I won't be re-reading.

It was okay. Different settings, going back & forth, secret family histories being discovered decades later, an autistic son... It's not the best read, or the worst. I only finally picked it up because it's literally been sitting on my bookshelf for at least 6+ months. I'll probably donate it to my little free library

If you've ever been curious about past life regression and what happens to your soul in the after life to prepare you for this life, this is a book you should read. Newton takes us through the cases of 29 individuals & leads them through their past lives to help try and understand what they went through in their lives to help better them in this one. It's a fascinating story that I'm glad I read. I feel like I learned a lot.

I picked this up a while ago & then put it down to read something else, because I knew it was going to be sad & I wasn't quite ready for something heavy at the time. Like most of Hannah's stuff I've read, it's a moving story of lifelong friends of Katie & Tully and the different directions their lives take, and some regrets of the way life works out in the end. A very touching, moving book, indeed. 4 star

Bumped it up from 2 to 3 stars from my initial 2015 read. It's still my least favourite of the trilogy.

Starting book three to finish up the trilogy. I initially read this in 2015, and it was my least liked of the series. I gave this two stars first time around--interested to see if the rating will change on the second read-through. 🤔

Starting The Girl Who Played With Fire tonight. I first read this trilogy back in 2015, so it's nice to come back & revisit. I do wish List had a re-read option, instead of moving it back & forth between the 'have read' & 'reading' shelves.
