This was a wonderful, better-paced sequel that I was excited to receive from #netgalley! This book focuses on the fighting front in World War I and how our protagonist Robert, the first male philosopher rescue flier in this alternate history/fantasy, fares along with his squadron. The author really did his historical research to ground the fantastical elements in reality, and it shows. Out on July 16th!

The Night Before | Wendy Walker

Pickpick

Plot twists galore, misdirection, unreliable narrators . . . Wendy Walker deftly employs them all without making the result gimmicky. You'll be turning the pages quickly as you try to figure out the truth. So settle in . . . you'll be reading for awhile. I was! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Nothing to See Here | Kevin Wilson

Pickpick

This book might sound like The Sound of Music: a governess to children in a household run by a wealthy but distant father who is influential in politics.
Except instead of singing pleasant tunes, the children LITERALLY CATCH FIRE.
This premise could be played for easy laughs, but Wilson refrains from cheap thrills. He uses humor, wit, and heart to meditate on attachment, parenting, and children healing from trauma. Thanks #NetGalley for the #ARC.

Memory is a tricky thing no-one remembers the same event in the same way so whose memories are nearest to the truth.

Great look at OCD.

Mehso-so

Just remembered, I forgot to review this #ComingOfAge story of two sisters growing up in 1950‘s Detroit. Unfortunately this story fell flat for me. It was too long and the author threw so many cliches and hot-button topics into the plot that this book felt overplayed. It lacked subtlety and authenticity. Some plot lines dragged and others were introduced and resolved in a paragraph. Not my favorite by Ms. Weiner. #NetGalley #ARC #MorningRead

TrishB It lived up to its title then! 23h
Cinfhen Hahaha!!! Yes @TrishB I wanted to include that somehow in my review but ran out of space😂🤣😂This is definitely a #BorrowNotBuy 23h

Set in the Great Depression in San Francisco, Willa McCarthy grows up watching the building of the golden gate bridge in the shadow of her four older brothers and a tragic family secret. Living with a strict Irish Catholic family she is the ever dutiful and obedient daughter who will promise her life to the church to fulfill a family tradition. ****rest of review in comments****

Jenken1998 That is until she stumbles upon another career path that leaves her questioning her beliefs, values and own desires. Will Willa risk losing her family and everything she has ever known to follow her possible true calling? I enjoyed this quick read with well developed characters, bits of history and a satisfying ending. Thanks #netgalley for allowing me to read this book. Pub date November 2019 1d

Up at my future in-law‘s place in New Hampshire for the three day weekend! Relaxing with this arc from #netgalley out by the fire pit after a long day of Home Depot sales, craft fairs, and yard work 🔥

DGRachel I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the first book. Excited to see there‘s a sequel coming soon. 😊 2d
danimgill @DGRachel Yes, it‘ll be out July 16th! And I‘m actually enjoying this sequel more than the first, so hopefully you‘ll find the same when the time comes 😁 2d
