Should have bailed on this. I appear to be in the minority on this one. I did not like it at all. Anyone in the US want this book? I will mail it to you.

VanChocStrawberry I‘d like to try it! 7mo

Between a pick and a so-so
Four girls, all named Guinevere, form a bond after they‘re dumped at a convent orphanage by their parents. Interesting coming-of-age story, but I could never pinpoint the time period and the ending was somewhat unbelievable.
Audiobook was well done!

Life inside a convent when religion isn't the only thing on your youthful mind. A wonderful coming of age piece.

I finished my last selection for this season of #booked2018. Four girls named Guinevere end up in an orphanage run by a covent. Each of them has their own story of loss and abandonment and, desperate for love and a sense of belonging,they cling to each other as they keep their secrets and plot how to escape the convent. The writing is lovely but the pace is slow. Still I ended up loving it. #friendship

BarbaraTheBibliophage Sounds like a great pick! 👏🏻👏🏻 1y

Part of #freakyfriday and I forgot to review last month! It‘s a melancholy story and I found it hard to identify with the characters. That said, I was really invested and attached to them.

✨I think #theguineveres by #sarahdomet sounds so unique. I can‘t wait to read this one eventually. I have so many books on my bookshelf that I own or that I borrowed that I still haven‘t read yet. 😂😂 I need two whole days out of the week to dedicate only to reading or something! Lol! QOTD: What do you do that helps make more time for reading??✨

librarypoweruser I put reading on my "to do" list every day so it makes me serious about making time and checking it off :) it's been helping! 2y
Kaye I listen to audiobooks at times when I can‘t read a physical book, like driving, laundry, you know...all the boring stuff ? You can get some extra reading time in that way. 2y
jpmcwisemorgan I do what @librarypoweruser does. It helps that I commute by bus, though. And I do what @Kaye does too. I made a decision about 8 years ago to read more because while I was in school I rarely read unless it was for school. About 2 years ago I started reading almost every day. It‘s my me-time. 2y

AngelErin @librarypoweruser Oo good idea! 2y

So I got a little sidetracked with the photo here but it IS a book about teenage girls trying to escape a convent so it works, right? 🤷‍♀️ Their families have abandoned them to the convent, a War is happening, and the girls are praying fervently that four comatose, unknown soldiers will be their way out. I don‘t think this book will stay with me in a deep way but it‘s deft, funny and dark- always a good combo for me.

This is one of the best books I've read in 2017. Beautiful writing, a unique setting, and characters that are flawed in extremely believable ways. Definitely worth the read!

The story of 4 Guineveres who were dropped off by their families at a convent during different points of their lives. United by their names the four girls have a close bond as they navigate life in a convent. The main story covers a year of their life that changed everything. Lots of good quotes in this book and I appreciated the Catholic focus.
