A silly #debut novel, firmly in the #chicklit category. Holly Banks and her family have relocated to the village of Primm, and it's time for daughter Ella to start Kindergarten. Holly is annoying, her husband is a nervous wreck, her mother is an irresponsible addict, and the PTA president is just downright unbelievably over-the-top and mean. I'd only recommend to those who love this genre. #notforme #millenialauthor (maybe) #Booked2020

Cinfhen Sorry it didn‘t work for you!! But at least you checked off the prompt 😉 1d
cherinium @Cinfhen Well, as the saying goes, all books are not for all people. This book was a selection from #onceuponabookclub. I love the concept of the box, and have adored several of the enclosed gifts; but the book selections have mostly been books I would never read of my own accord. With that said, some of them were great, and I'm glad I had them put into my hands. 18h
Cinfhen That‘s the downside to a subscription service that chooses the books but at least you‘re enjoying the experience and extra swag!!! 16h

Marie, a black woman in 1970s nyc, works first for the fbi and later as a spy. The main political story in Burkina Faso is historically based. Marie‘s race and gender provide important context. While the suspense about Marie‘s mission and choices grew, the structure got in the way. Written as a letter to her sons the framing was distracting and unnecessary and would pull me out of of the story. #booked2020 #millenialauthor

I didn‘t think I was going to like this one but i actually did!!‘ By mid book I was drawn into the angst of the MC‘s and wanted to find out what would happen to their relationship. I loved the audio narration by Aoife McMahon, I don‘t think I would have been as engaged otherwise! #booked2020 #MillenialAuthor

Cinfhen Funny how audiobooks are really changing how we react to a book, I‘m feeling the same way. A good narrator can really add to the story 😁 3d

I‘ve tried, I really have. I have her a second chance. But no, I just don‘t like Rooney‘s prose. Nor did I particularly enjoy a repetitive plot, or the lack of any kind of development in the characters.

Book 6 for #JumpStart2020 @Clwojick @Lizpixie

This was my pick for #MillenialAuthor #Booked2020 @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage

BarbaraTheBibliophage Oh shoot. Good news, though. There are lots of other millennial authors to chose from! 3d
Cinfhen I found this book to be ok but I didn‘t get all the fuss 🤷🏼‍♀️oh well, that‘s the life of a reader ~ we can‘t all love the same book!! At least you checked off the challenge prompt ✔️ 3d
Cathythoughts I really loved it. So interesting to see all the different views on it 3d
sudi I liked reading it, it was a good book but not as life changing as people made it out to be. 2d

Setting up next week! Hoping for ❄️ so I can stay home & read. I'm almost done with SUCH A FUN AGE (#millenialauthor). Then I'll dive into tagged book which I pulled at random from my TBR Jar in an effort to #readyourownbooks. Tagged book also has seagulls on the cover so that will work for a #booked2020 prompt too! Finally I'll dip into FRIENDING bc making friends is hard but healthy & I want to be better at it. #weeklyforecast

mdm139 Love the Lightkeepers 5d
4thhouseontheleft We have a lot of rain in our forecast this week, which I prefer, since my daughter still goes to school, but I have an excuse to act like a hermit. 😆 4d

Gotta say, for the first 100 or so pages I did not get what the hype about this book was all about. But then I came around. A cute, easy, romantic, read, with a bit of sex but tons of heart. A bit of political spin, which I liked. All very happy.

Cinfhen I‘m going to be starting this soon ❣️I hope I find it charming like you did 😁 5d
4thhouseontheleft I plan on reading this later this month! I have it selected for #redwhiteandblue, but it's also on my #newyearwhodis list and my hold just came in at the library, so I'm reading that prompt now instead of in the summer. @cinfhen 4d
Cinfhen Im using it for Red, White & Blue type too @4thhouseontheleft plus a few other challenges too ❤️ (edited) 4d

Ready to start reading my latest selection from #onceuponabookclub. It will also be my last for a while, as I need to curb my spending for a while. Does anyone know if Julie Valerie is a #millenialauthor ? I can't find anything about her age on the web. I'd like to use this for #Booked2020 if possible. @4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage

Cinfhen I‘m finding it really difficult to find the ages of most authors too!! 1w
cherinium @Cinfhen Glad I'm not the only one. This author seems to be in the right stage of life based on her bio info that is available, but who knows? 1w
Cinfhen Good enough!! Just read it and mark it 🤫🤭 7d
