Grapes of Wrath | John Steinbeck

One of those long books that you don‘t feel it long at all because you want to know more about the story, about this family. A good book with a sad story. Difficult social-political times. That ending, trying to go on. The mother, Ma, is a strong female character in this story. 4.5/5⭐️

I received this book and bookmark in 2020 from @Endowarrior21 during #LittleChristmasSwap hosted by @bookish_wookish
Beautiful middle grade story with splendid, stunning illustrations. At the end of the book, the author explains what motivated him to write this story. I recommend also to read it in conjunction with the book. 4.5⭐️

Thank you @Endiwarrior21 🥰

Clwojick Great job! 13mo

I think most of you know the premise of this story. Finlay is talking with her editor about her novel and someone heard words like contract, kill him, payment, and thought they were talking about a hitperson and now wants to hire Finlay. This is an absurd, unrealistic contemporary adult cozy mystery for me. So funny. I was laughing on all the time. It was good after all my busy month and after serious books. This is for laugh. Don‘t expect more ⬇️

mabell It does sound fun! 13mo

The cup was a gift😍unpopular opinion here but it was me because I couldn‘t stand the main character. But if you like family drama with dysfunctional characters, this is for you. Usually I like that type of stories but I don‘t know what happened with this one. Sunday left her home, town, away from her family after a traumatic experience, no support to manage it. Then, one day decided to go back.⬇️

Gissy This is a type of person that with the word “sorry” in her mouth and “you are right, I shouldn‘t do it” can destroy your life. I saw this person so selfish and opportunistic, no introspection, only thinking in herself. Well, something that you can expect in this dysfunctional family. They can destroy others just to be together as a family, dysfunctional but together🙄 2.8/3⭐️

EclecticBookLover I had similar feelings while reading this one. I dont understand the hype. I didn't like any of the family members. 13mo

Gissy @EclecticBookLover Terrible characters and the novel was a little bit repetitive for less than 300 pages. I read Sunday‘s story in each chapter🙄 13mo
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 13mo

Another slow pace reading, character driven story. Set part in London and part in Ireland. Two time lines. Olivia inherited her grandfather‘s bookshop and there is a photo of two girls and a manuscript that connect these girls with her grandmother who has now Alzheimer. These girls claimed that they saw fairies. Olivia will search the truth behind the photos. Also about family relations/secrets, second chances and what is home for Olivia⬇️

Gissy The story is so pretty but I can understand that is not for everyone. I really enjoyed it. Love the audiobook because of the Irish accent and traditions mentioned here. This book has been in my tbr forever😳but I finally I read it. There some gifts I liked in this box. 3.8/4⭐️

First book read by this author and it was perfect for me. A slow pace character driven kind of mystery. Cal hooper an American retired cop decided to move to a small place Ireland. There, he will be involved almost by accident in a search of a missing person. This novel will be perfect for a sequel. I really enjoyed it but it is pretty slow in case you like more action 4⭐️

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 Love the colour coordination of the book cover and the cover. Read this book a long time ago but cannot remember too much about it. 13mo

No BINGOs on any cards this month😔 It was a bad reading month, that‘s for sure. Couldn‘t focus.
In total, I read 3 books, listened to a short podcast & 31 short (under 200 pages)🌶️🧠🍬. Hoping for a better April.

Thanks so much to my cohosts as well as everyone who took part in the Readathon. It was a blast seeing everyone‘s posts!!

TheSpineView Great job! 13mo
