#StoryGragh: fiction contemporary challenging emotional reflective medium-paced
560 pages | first published 2022

This is a reimagining of the Dickens classic, David Copperfield. Set in modern-day Appalachia, this coming-of-age story takes a dogged look at poverty and the opioid epidemic. If you liked Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance, I think you will enjoy this book as well.

Crazeedi Definitely want to read 1mo
Kangaj1 I started this one yesterday and it is so good so far! 1mo
suvata I really enjoyed it, but I think it was a little long. Still, I give 4.5 stars. 1mo
lynneamch I'd recommend, if you haven't read Hillbilly Elegy, read this instead. 1mo
suvata @lynneamch It‘s a tough call. I pretty much liked them equally. I say, read both. 🙃 1mo

401 pages | first published 2022

In this one-of-a-kind novel, two friends—often in love, but never lovers—come together as creative partners in the world of video game design.

5-stars from me. 😎

jlhammar Really looking forward to this one. Hope to get to it in September! 6mo
suvata @jlhammar I was never really a gamer but this book was so good I could still relate to the characters. Hope you enjoy it. 6mo

This is the fifth book in Chanel Cleeton‘s Perez family saga. Alicia and Isabel's lives intertwine, and the past and present collide, as a mother and daughter are forced to choose between their family's expectations and following their hearts. The entire series was exceptional.

#StoryGraph: fiction literary emotional reflective medium-paced

In the vein of Jesmyn Ward‘s Salvage the Bones and Sue Monk Kidd‘s The Secret Life of Bees, a coming-of-age novel told by almost-eleven-year-old Kenyatta Bernice (KB), as she and her sister try to make sense of their new life with their estranged grandfather in the wake of their father‘s death and their mother‘s disappearance.

From the Publisher:
This was how things began: Boston on the cusp of fall, the Sackler Museum robbed of 23 pieces of priceless Chinese art. Even in this back room, dust catching the slant of golden, late-afternoon light, Will could hear the sirens. They sounded like a promise.

This debut novel is told over 70 years from the shifting perspectives of Hazel, her daughters‘, Miriam and August, and Miriam‘s daughter, Joan. The book jumps back and forth through time as it slowly unveils the legacy each generation passes down to the next.

I really like this author‘s style. Most of the time I couldn‘t decide whether I even liked the characters. They made me laugh, cry, get angry, and reflect my own relationships. Ultimately, I adored them. In any event, the book was thought-provoking and entertaining.

I am not a hardcore Sci-Fi fan but I did enjoy this book. I didn‘t love it, but I certainly liked it enough to give it 3 stars. I would recommend to the right person.

Fleeing her old life, Rosemary Harper joins the multi-species crew of the Wayfarer as a file clerk, and follows them on their various missions throughout the galaxy.

Fantastic crime investigation about an investigation by an “average” woman who helped expose a major college football team sex scandal. Part memoir and part literary true crime, Tell Me Everything is mesmerizing story.

EvieBee Oh wow, didn‘t know she included it in her guide. It‘s such a great book! 8mo
suvata @EvieBee it really was a page-turner 8mo
