Such a charming story told by a wonderful storyteller. Really enjoyed this cast of misfit characters and the life circumstances that brought them all together. If you enjoyed Little Miss Sunshine, this is a good book for you!

I‘m a sucker for Jojo Moyes‘ feel-good, funny tales of unlikely happenings that draw people together. And she doesn‘t disappoint with this one. You‘ll fall in love with everyone in this story. And it will fly by.
A 4⭐️ read.

This was a nice story to listen to while switching off from a very focused work project. I could leave the work behind and follow along with the messy-but-ultimately-redemptive experiences of a very likeable cast of characters. And wouldn‘t you know it, love wins in the end! 🥰

I checked this audio book out of the library on a whim the last time I needed another "commute book." I enjoyed listening to One Plus One, found myself looking forward to getting back in the car to find out what happened next. I'll be looking to read and/or listen to more of her book soon :)

Definitely predictable but still so sweet and heartwarming. I‘ve had this on my kindle forever, so I‘m glad summer has given me a chance to catch up on my reading.

I am really enjoying this, but I can‘t help wondering what they‘re feeding Norman! I mean, he‘s supposed to be huge! He can‘t survive on the scraps from their meager meals on the road.

This stick of books on my nightstand are all the books I‘ve started in the past month but haven‘t gotten through more than a few pages of. Not because I don‘t like them, just because I‘ve been so tired lately!

My mother-in-law loves Jojo Moyes and gifted me this one awhile back. A feel good story about a family of misfits and a guy down on his luck who go on an epic road trip. #mountTBRchallenge

A fast/easy read. As “Me Before You” did, this one looks at class differences, but it‘s not as sad. There‘s also the struggles of being a single mom here. I enjoyed following the escapades of Jess and her kids and her relationship with the guy who takes a road trip with them. It took me way too long to realize the title is a pun on the fact that they‘re on the way to a math competition, etc 🤦‍♀️!

Starting this one while I wait during son‘s piano lesson. Need a palate cleanser before I get back to A Little Life!

Louise So nice to hear your son is learning piano. I've played since childhood, and it is one of the great joys of my life! 🤓 1y
ValerieAndBooks @Louise glad piano brings you happiness! My youngest is 16 and still enjoys his lessons after all these years. In fact tonight is the ceremony where he will be inducted in Tri-M (music honor society) at school 😊. I believe he is doing a Scott Joplin. He also plays clarinet and just got in district band for that. 1y
Louise @ValerieAndBooks It is so wonderful to hear that! There is nothing quite like making music with other people, and there is also a lot of joy and consolation in the piano as a solo instrument. Music instruction is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give to a child. Joplin is a great recital choice! Such fun to play! 1y

This wasn't the most thought provoking book, but That wasn't what I was looking for. Sometimes, I need a story to get lost in, something light. This filled that need.

Mi hanno detto quale era la domanda sbagliata di Tanzie. Quella sulla teoria dell‘emergenza. Nell‘emergenza forte, il tutto può essere maggiore della somma delle parti che lo costituiscono.

huntersmom1977 Wow girl!! I'm amazed at how fast you read! Keep going 😊 2y
Clwojick @huntersmom1977 it honestly goes in spurts. Sometimes I read four a day, and sometimes I won't pick up a book for three months, and survive on audiobooks instead. I'm sitting at roughly 65 for the year, but I've had some pretty serious dry spells this year. Litsy has given me my book reading mojo back. Hahaha 2y

One of those books that really hits you in the feels! This is now officially in my top 5 reads, such a roller-coaster of emotions and relatable in some ways, a really beautiful read that takes you on a journey. I cried some very snotty tears! #lovedit #top5 #goodread

So in truth I was going to use the Wesley's for #favoritesiblings, but because it was such a popular choice I decided to go in another direction! I loved this sibling relationship in this book! Because to me it was so real and also untraditional. #splashintosummerreads

Picks:
🛫- Before the Fall: good crime mystery pageturner but DON'T read on plane!
🚂- The Little Engine that Could: Childhood favorite & a classic!! 🤗
🚗- One Plus One: A fun & charming Moyes novel (NON tear jerker!🙆) about a road trip with 3 very unlikely passengers, all of them endearing & loving characters that are forced to help one another out in order to get to their final destination.💕
