Bones of Paradise | Jonis Agee

This was so depressing but it also felt true. The family was a nightmare. Parts of this felt like overreaching. The Author described the landscape well.

Set amidst the revolution in China shifting the country out of its last dynasty, Peach Blossom Paradise follows the arc of the life of Xiumi, focusing a great deal on her childhood, then following her forward as she becomes a revolutionary, though in a more quiet way than I usually think of that word. This is based on real people and events. I liked it quite a bit.

May be an unpopular opinion, but while I loved the story, it was sooooooo drawn out for me.

My January #doublespin! I've had this book on my shelf forever, and even though I've seen the movie, I was surprised how much I liked this book. I'll admit that I find the relationship between Michael and Hanna "icky"...yet I couldn't put this book down.

I did not expect to enjoy this book, but I was immediately hooked. What a great coming of age story!

The Four Winds | Kristin Hannah

Mehso-so

I have not read a book by Hannah in years and years. The Four Winds is set during the Great Depression and dust bowl years. It is a hard, harrowing tale about a piece of American history that I haven‘t read much about. Even though it put me through the wringer I was mostly on board until the end. If it had been a physical book I would have thrown it across the room. Sorry for my unpopular opinion. #NewYearWhoDis

JamieArc I‘ve only read The Great Alone, but couldn‘t stand the relentless suffering. I may read some of her earlier books, but these type of books are not for me. 4h
ChaoticMissAdventures I live an unpopular opinion! I always place her in a chick lit - bookcluby books that are not my jam. Her books always seem so unnecessarily depressing! 2h
