Siracusa | Delia Ephron
Mehso-so

The novel's greatest strength lies in the compelling characterization that doesn't falter once from start to finish. The plot is reasonably unbelievable & enticing. Honestly, this book is worth a read just for the absolutely startling characters & the hilarity that is their unraveling throughout the plot.The story does some weaving between past/present which can get a bit confusing & I had a pretty good idea about where things were going. 3.5⭐️

A solid family saga spanning almost a century in Korea/Japan. Lee‘s writing was intentional and vivid in a concise manner, never wasteful or too sparing with details. If you enjoy multigenerational family stories and writing that focuses on ideas like race/belonging, self-identity, cultural disillusionment, and the role of women—this one is for you. A beautiful tome, to be sure. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘m mostly enjoying this book, but having a hard time believing in the MC. He seems incredibly unintelligent for a 16-y.o. who was accepted into a private boarding school. For reference—he‘s never read Robert Frost & doesn‘t know what slant rhyme is. 🤨

A tale of despair, childlike optimism, innocent jealousy, sibling rivalry, & unwavering adoration. I was mesmerized by the unfolding of June‘s character, who readers will cherish from start to finish. I desperately wanted to wrap her in a warm embrace & hold her close throughout the entire gut-wrenching novel, along with Toby, & Greta, &, hell—why not the whole family? Gorgeous, stirring, & brilliantly original, TTWIH won‘t soon be forgotten. 5🌟

The Snow Child | Eowyn Ivey

Oh, my heart! What a bittersweet, tender tale of loss & hope, sorrow & joy. Jack & Mabel leave their home Back East to begin anew on the Alaskan frontier in the 1920s. Discouraged at their inability to have a child, they seek solace in being alone; but before long, a mysterious child comes to them from the edges of the snowy wilderness & changes everything. Based on the Russian fairytale of Snegurochka, The Snow Child is utterly magical. 5⭐️

Immediately after I finished Ng‘s first novel, I started impatiently lusting after another & LFE did not disappoint. Rife with tension & familial drama, LFE is a portrait of a utopian community nestled in the outskirts of Cleveland in the 90s. I savored this story from start to finish, relishing the recurring imagery of fire & rich emotions of remorse, desperation, & loyalty. Ng is the queen of writing trainwrecks-in-waiting. 5⭐️

I hate zombies, y‘all. Can‘t HANDLE blood & guts or gore of any kind. The Walking Dead gave me nightmares. BUT—I 👏 loved 👏 this 👏 book. Carey manages to put a refreshing spin on the flesh-eating trope and crafts a main character that is endearing and inspiring all at once. The novel moves along at a quick clip and resolves in a hopeful (but open-ended) manner. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mehso-so

Stuck between a so-so and a pan. Erdrich has great intentions with this work of dystopian/speculative fiction, but execution is rushed/poor. Cedar isn‘t a terrible MC, but she‘s not altogether enjoyable, either. Other characters lack depth, the storyline is tedious, and those journal entries leave a LOT to be desired. 😩 Not a total waste of time, but definitely not one that will stick with me. ⭐️⭐️

I *might* be the last one sending my #SecretSantaGoesPostal #WinterSolsticeBookExchange package🤦‍♀️ I just saw the other day that my match bought one of the books I‘d purchased for her box, so I had to do a quick swap. And the post office is only open a few hours each day (#smalltownproblems) which conveniently coincide during Henry‘s naps🙄 Sending out today w/ a few other goodies. If your package hasn‘t made it yet, don‘t fret! It‘s on its way.

I received this copy as my first official ARC, and it did not disappoint! I wasn‘t crazy about the Christian Grey-esque behavior of the lead male character, but the authors did a fantastic job of weaving a complex and thrilling narrative. I guessed a few of the plot twists, but most caught me unawares.

The premise was promising, but this might have been some of the least engaging published writing that I‘ve ever read. Dialogue, characters, and conflicts all felt juvenile (though the novel dealt with middle-aged men and women), and there were some unforgivable plot holes. Not my cup of tea, at all.

Pg 152—Cedar has learned Phil turned her in (I knew it was that rotten bastard), and I can‘t help but think of the unfairness of her situation. He gets her pregnant, turns her in, and gets to keep living without consequence? UGH. So annoyed. 😖🤬🙄

For instance, one of my wrapped "gifts" is a three dollar cat toy...wrappings create intrigue.? It's all about the bookish love ? (edited) 2y

Although a few of my hunches were correct, I missed the big curveballs altogether—& the epilogue SATISFIES. I haven‘t been this pleased w/ a suspense novel in some time. The best part? Brown composed a thrilling and mysterious narrative w/o resorting to the drug/alcohol-addled female lead trope that is so prevalent. I haven‘t loved to hate (strong word...maybe “judge”?) a female lead so much since Gone Girl. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

Guys. This book is SO. BAD. 😭 The writing is just ridiculously juvenile & overdone at the same time. The premise is intriguing, but characters are so poorly written & there are so many plot holes, it‘s taking sheer willpower to keep going. This really bums me out, too—that first page was so promising. Are you a finisher or a quitter when it comes to boos you don‘t care for?

HeatherBookNerd If I‘ve made it halfway through I feel compelled to finish. But generally I ditch a book that hasn‘t gotten my attention by 50 pages in. 2y

Lunde offers a haunting narrative that echoes across the centuries, as 3 main characters seek to create a better future for their sons. Set against a backdrop of evolving agricultural practices, climate change, & socioeconomic degeneration, The History of Bees won't easily be forgotten. The novel does what so many well-written dystopian works have been known to do: it evokes a chilling sense of unease & seems an all-too-relevant warning.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Rules of Magic | Alice Hoffman
Mehso-so

This one was in the same vein as Practical Magic--a lot of "telling," not enough "showing." I was a bit annoyed with the f-bombs in both books--not because I'm against the word, but because it just felt unnecessary and out of place in the novels. The siblings were fun characters, but much of the novel felt like Hoffman was checking off items on a list. (I know--I'm in the unpopular minority here!) ⭐️⭐️.5

I read this one just in time for Halloween--the Litsy hype was so great, how couldn't I? ? Far better than its movie counterpart, Practical Magic still felt a bit...cliche?...at times, probably because I felt so often that Hoffman was "telling" instead of "showing." While I enjoyed the characters and the plot, the story was more miss than hit for me, sadly. ⭐️⭐️.5

The Golden House | Salman Rushdie
Mehso-so

This was my first Rushdie, and lemme tell ya--I was unprepared for the exorbitant # of allusions in this novel! I had a hard time with the foreign and obscure film titles. Unfortunately, the book digressed...a lot. So much so that the sidebars became distracting and the work was hard to digest (but not in a delightfully-challenging way). I was largely disappointed, especially since I loved the Golden family & their story so much. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

wrenaymuhree Also: though I did not disagree with Rushdie's lamentations regarding the Joker, I wasn't thrilled with how fiercely political the book became. After several sections of ranting, I started to skim those sections. Yeah, I'm one of those people. 2y

This raw, painfully descriptive novel about a young girl's sexual/psychological/physical abuse and resulting internal war is difficult to digest and equally tough to rate. From a literary perspective, I found the work engrossing and artfully composed. As a friend, though, I'd have a very hard time gushing about the novel or recommending it to others. Captivating, repulsive, & provocative, all at once. ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

Bailedbailed

Cover: gorgeous. Writing: dreadfully pretentious and R A M B L I N G. It took me several attempts to meander my way through 8 pages, at which point I gave up. I could barely even summarize what happened in those 8 pages...so many meandering diatribes that were so full of trying-too-hard descriptions, it's difficult to stay connected. I felt my eyes glazing over like in the days of old, when forced to read a particularly draggy textbook.
