While I liked discovering the life and work of Graciela Iturbide, this graphic biography left me wanting for more...

This had quite nice atmosphere: there were some moments when I loved how I didn't know what was true and what wasn't.

Plot was really solid, no complains about it. But there were big holes in logic. The ending gave us a solution that didn't make sense if you ponder it a bit.

This was interesting and entertaining but didn't get me to bite my nails.

Thanks for for recommendation @WJCintron

The Shape of Mercy | Susan Meissner

Book 82

I listened to The Shape of Mercy by Susan Meissner. Lauren, a college student, is hired by Abigail, a retired librarian, to transcribe the diary of her ancestor, Mercy, a woman accused of witchcraft during the Salem Witch Trials. The story is engaging from the beginning and the characters are diverse and dimensional. I did occasionally feel frustrated by Lauren's decisions, which means I was invested in the story. I recommend! 4 🌟s

The Return | NICHOLAS. SPARKS

I've heard good writers should include nothing that doesn't add to the story. "Every word, every line, should be valuable, essential," type stuff.

But New York Times Bestseller (several times over) Nicholas Sparks is proof that the Hemingway isn't the only way. Half of this novel I'm reading is just descriptions of this guy dressing himself, performing daily tasks, cooking dinner, and repeatedly "letting his mind wander to Natalie" or not.

Christyco125 I also don‘t understand how he packs so much into so few pages and still manages to make you cry every time. (edited) 27m
Caitlin89 He's definitely a bestseller for a reason! 27m

Another quick summer read, a follow up to his previous book, The River. I liked it. It went off the rails at the end but it was entertaining and Heller writes beautifully.

I thought this book would be perfect for pool reading but I‘m kind of bored. Not sure if I‘ll finish or not.

When We Were Birds | Ayanna Lloyd Banwo

First author I‘ve ever read from Trinidad & Tobago! The story is set in the country and is a love story with plenty of mythos involved too. Also the cover is absolutely gorgeous. There is nothing particularly angsty or lustful in this love story. It‘s a curiosity, a being drawn to one another, an entwining of lives. Devoid of the western tropes that are often in romance reads. Felt refreshing and delightful. Also family stories are very present.
