Time to start this historical mystery. The opening chapter shows plenty of promise!

What an insane, intense, and magical story! The only weakness was a rather weak and somewhat whiny main character but once she womans up, the story takes off. I cannot wait to see what the next book holds!

bookishnerd I am getting this, so, yay!! 3y

Little Deaths | Emma Flint

A tragic and heartfelt story about the double standards for women, especially mothers, when it comes to how they live their life. This book may take place in the 1960s, but things have really not changed all that much.

I tried this in print and couldn't get past the first chapter. I'm much farther along in the audio. However, the audio version of the alien voices is not one for those who struggle with mouth sounds. I have no idea how I am continuing to listen but here we are.

LitHousewife I cannot deal with mouth sounds. Good luck! 3y
whatsheread @LitHousewife Normally, I can't either. Thankfully, they don't speak all that much. 3y

This story about first loves and loss is good but definitely intended for a younger audience. The main character is so young, and his reactions are very appropriate for his age. However, that also means it gets a bit tedious after a while. Still, it is a sweet story that will have you reflecting on your own first love.

More adventures of the fabulous Irene Winters and her entourage. I love seeing her grow from book to book. Plus, we learn just a little bit more about the Library in this one that may be setting the stage for future adventures. Fans will not want to miss this one!

It reminded me of A Court of Thorns and Roses but was different enough to keep me reading it in one sitting. Plus, I really love the symbolism of a woman able to control and use the power of fire.

Behind Closed Doors | B. A. Paris

What a stunner of a novel! The phrase "emotional roller coaster" seems inadequate to describe the wide range of emotions this book generated in me. It is going to take me a few days to process my thoughts into coherence but my immediate reaction is one of stunned awe.

I'm not certain this is the best book to read on a road trip with kids in the car given how much I want to swear at it. And I'm only a quarter of the way through.

This is undoubtedly one of the best way fantasy novels I've read in a long, long time. The formidable amount of world building could detract from Mia's story. Instead, he incorporates it in such a way that it is integral and absolutely fascinating. I cannot wait for the rest of Mia's story!

It is difficult to describe any book that depicts the life of a slave as fantastic reading, but Colson Whitehead does an amazing job doing just that. His interpretation of the Underground Railroad is clever but in no way takes away from Cora's story. A definite must-read.

LLindsey I just ordered this one today. I am super excited! 3y

War Porn | Roy Scranton
post image
Pickpick

This is not for everyone. Scranton scrutinizes the second Iraqi war in much the same way as Tim O'Brien did the Vietnam conflict. Brutal, cold and yet somehow eerily poetic, it is not a novel you can enjoy but that you can appreciate for its contribution to literature and the harsh truths it has to tell.

Truly Madly Guilty | Liane Moriarty

Pickpick

Liane Moriarty always does a great job of writing about modern marriages and friendships. Her latest is no different as it is by turns engaging and honest - sometimes brutally so. I didn't like it as much as BIG LITTLE LIES but it was still an excellent book.

How to Hang a Witch | Adriana Mather

Cute YA that explores the reasons for the Salem Witch Trials. A little bit of witchcraft rounds out the story to make it a fast-paced and enjoyable read.

[DELETED] 3803335244 I was curious about this one, I know it talks of Mather & the author is a relative of his. I personally have family history affected by witch trails & do not support a book on Cottons side. Does it tell his side? Or is it about him being a evil man as he was? Personally, I would want to write about a relative who was so horrible. Painted him in a good light? Or bad? 3y
[DELETED] 3803335244 Wouldn't want, lol 3y
whatsheread @AustenNerd16 It does a great job of showing how both sides are at fault. The main character is also related to the Mather family, so there is some sympathy there for the bad rap he gets by the town. And history. 3y
