I loved this audiobook 💙💙
I finished this early for our #LittensLoveRomance buddy read so I‘m not giving anything away. It was my favorite read/listen of last week. Such a great cast of characters.

Not my favorite by Miranda but it was a good roadtrip listen. This has been on my shelf for a long time so I put it on my #Roll100 list this year and chose it for April‘s #ReadOrDonate book. Another space cleared on my bookcase.

6th book read from the Women‘s Prize for fiction-long list
😬Sorry this one didn‘t work for me. I‘m not a fan of novels about sport even though the story has other topics. I wasn‘t interested in the story and I couldn‘t believe so decision made. 2.5/3⭐️

Another #readyourebooks off my TBR! I was in the right frame of mind to read this and enjoyed it. I seem to be in a fluffier place as I‘m working to get back to my everyday life and tasks. I‘m pushing myself with physical therapy and then enjoying some laid back reading.

5th book read from Women‘s Prize fiction long list. Mixed feelings, again🤷🏽‍♀️Maybe my expectations have been too high because they are books nominated for a prize. A HF based on true events and also based on previous
short stories. Maybe that it‘s why I felt disconnected in some parts.
The narrator in this story is working in a new project at her job, a nursing home in Korea. She will help the residents to write their own obituary⬇️

Gissy (Cont.)The narrator ask the persons to use 3 words in their obituary that describe themselves. Until she knew Ms Mook who will use 8 words, representing stages of her life. Story is about this woman, about the difficulties she lived in Korea at that time and her current life. A sad story. But as I said some parts were like disconnected to me or not well integrated. Maybe I had another idea of what the novel was about 3.75⭐️ 8h

(The Liar) First book in a trilogy. It‘s more like a suspense story. This man, Alex, sees an unknown man next to him..but is that man dead? Then he sees a stone in his own hand.., with blood...did he kill that man?...but he is not sure about anything because he wake up in a hospital and he doesn‘t remember anything. Fragments of memories come and go. And then, the story goes to discover what really happened, who is Alex⬇️

Gissy (Cont.) The story has some twists but some of them are quite predictable. In general I found it enjoyable, a little too long but kept my attention. 3.7/3.8⭐️

4th book read from the Women‘s Prize for fiction long list. Mixed feelings with this one. It was beautifully written but I didn‘t find a well integration in the story, specially the first parts. In some parts I just lost interest because I felt author was jumping from one topic to another🤷🏽‍♀️Let‘s see if it included in the short list. It didn‘t work for me as I expected 3⭐️

I read this book as part of #GabyReadsBookTroop (YouTuber) and I concur with their analysis that this is more like a HF because it is based/inspired in a true case but novel is from the victims POV😢It was interesting but sometimes I don‘t know what the author wanted to emphasize, the victims?, the main character? the legal process? In my opinion I don‘t see that integration so well but this is an unpopular opinion.⬇️

Gissy (Cont.) It seems that this book was well accepted in that book club🤷🏽‍♀️ 3.8⭐️

Interesting HF inspired by true event where a woman was sentenced to be executed in the maiden, a guillotine used at that time. The story fictionalized the life, affair and sentence this woman. Interesting but also a sad story. Trigger point, sexual and physical abuse. However I thought, why this novel was in the Women‘s Prize fiction long list? I‘m not an expert but author describes so well each character giving them an unique/different voice⬇️

Gissy (Cont.) I love this edition, so pretty! 3/3.5 ⭐️
