The River | Peter Heller

4.5 stars for this tense and riveting story! The writing is character driven and its surroundings depicted so realistically it transported me on an epic heart-racing adventure down the Canadian Maskwa River. A canoe adventure, thriller and mystery all rolled into one. I highly recommend reading it. #MMD #summerreadingguide

Bklover Looking forward to this one! 1w

4.5 ☆ A quick, fun rom-com about twins that pull a switcheroo at a Miss American Treasure pageant. Charlotte puts me in mind of a very bookish Grace Hart in Miss Congeniality. A shy school librarian, no makeup, Harry Potter nerd, loves Pride & Prejudice, not Fifty Shades of Grey like her twin. She finds her own Mr Darcy but can it last w/her posing as Miss Texas? Discovering oneself is the big picture here and I loved that about this book. #MMD

The Almost Sisters: A Novel | Joshilyn Jackson

Pickpick

This was my first Joshilyn Jackson book, but I don‘t think it will be my last. This book handles tough issues with sensitivity and even some humor. It‘s an important story that is very well-written. There‘s a lot happening with all the secrets that are uncovered. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

I have now completed the 2019 #mmdchallenge ! This was my “book recommended by someone with great taste.” #modernmrsdarcy #mmd

ItsAngel I love Joshilyn Jackson! You should try her on audio if you are an audiobook fan. I loved 2mo
jenniferajanes @ItsAngel Thanks for the tip! I do like audiobooks. I‘ll add Gods in Alabama to my TBR! 2mo
ItsAngel The Opposite of Everyone and Someone Else‘s Love Story are also fantastic. 2mo
jenniferajanes @ItsAngel Thank you! I‘ll add those too. 2mo

The Poisonwood Bible | Barbara Kingsolver

I first read The Poisonwood Bible in 2011. At that time, I struggled through it but my heart wasn‘t really into it. I rated it 3-stars. I re-read it for the #MMD Book Club in April 2019. I can‘t tell you what the difference was but the second time around, I adored it — 5-star adored it. Some books absolutely deserve a second chance. I will never forget this book and how it taught me that there are many levels of what society calls “privilege”.

cherinium I loved this book when I read it many years ago. I've often thought about a re-read, but I'm afraid I would have the opposite experience you had. I would hate to read it again and be disappointed. It's so true that sometimes, how we feel about a particular book is all about where we are mentally when we read it. 2mo
suvata @cherinium So true. I am so glad I gave it a second chance. 2mo
Sward7 I‘m going to give it a second chance now. Liked it the first time- bet I‘ll love it the next time. 2mo

#MMD Book Club April 2019 pick

After being converted to Catholicism by missionaries as a child in Nigeria, Eugene grows to be a religious zealot and a very violent man. The story is told through the 15-year-old Kambili and her older brother, Jaja. There is hell to pay at home for any indiscretion But Kambili and Jaja enjoy periods of rest and peace on frequent trips to stay with their much more level headed and non-fanatical Aunty Ifeoma.
