Although I didn't enjoy this anywhere near as much as Foe, this novella kept my attention (for the most part) and actually gave me some pretty funky dreams. I'm curious to see how the Netflix movie turns out! #justfinished #horror #review

Managed to squeeze in The Mountain Story as one last read in 2019. Four hikers get lost on a mountain and as much as it is a survival story it is also focused quite a bit on the characters themselves (especially Wolf's backstory). The first 1/3 of the book was hard to get through but it picked up from there and although not my favourite Lori Lansens book I still enjoyed it.

A book about three strangers who come together through the local small town library. There are some interesting less developed characters that we meet throughout the read. This was a cute, easy read that was enjoyable. Well written and the characters were interesting but nothing overly special. Lots of love life talk in the first chapter but it dies down (for the most part) for the rest of the book.

This book did not disappoint. The highs and lows of the Marsh family were beautifully constructed. Looking forward to the newest film adaptation 🎬 #currentlyreading #justfinished #classics #fiction

Brave New World | Aldous Huxley

Just finished reading Brave New World and I enjoyed it as I enjoy most Dystopian books. Not my favourite Dystopian book but it was still a good book that holds up today. It was the middle portion of the book that I found a bit harder to get through but I truly liked the beginning and end. None of the characters are likeable, but I enjoyed that fact in this book.

This was a great “no holds barred” read about an absolute legend written by an absolute legend. Gazza is a truly remarkable and troubled individual, I couldn‘t put this one down. #justfinished #gazza #paulgascoigne #livinglegend #autobiography #readbooks #drinkbeer #upthebooknerds #punkswhoread #football #footballlegends #soccer #newcastleunited #spurs #england #lazio #locallegends

This book was gorgeous in so many ways. The characters were fully fleshed out and incredibly multi-dimentional. There were a couple of typos/changes in font size here and there, but then again, I've never read an indie book before, and the pure human joy of this novel makes up for all that! #justfinished #lgbt #lgbtfiction #peterpan #fiction #queerfiction

For those of you who love nature, the outdoors, environmental science or ecology, Robin Wall Kimmerer writes beautiful essays about her relationship and the relationship of indigenous peoples with the land. #justfinished

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek | Kim Michele Richardson

I read this in 2 days, so clearly I enjoyed it!

Parts of the story were predictable, but that didn't diminish the charm of Richardson's novel. It beautifully portrayed the power of books, and served as a reminder to take nothing in life for granted. 4/5 ⭐

The JFK assassination has just occurred and is the backdrop of the story as a mobster is on the run and a housewife who needs a change. The book is is well written and jumped from different characters story lines seamlessly. The characters were well developed and intriguing. The book is a page turner that kept me wondering what will happen next.
