Harriet | Elizabeth Jenkins

repost for @LeahBergen:

It‘s now December so that means it‘s time for one of our #PersephoneClub reads!

@Gissy ‘s pick for us this month is Harriet by Elizabeth Jenkins. This is a casual buddy read; read and comment on each other‘s posts and reviews as you see them. We usually aim to finish by the middle of the month but that‘s not written in stone. 😉 And anyone is welcome to read along with us, of course!

LeahBergen And we can start to vote on next year‘s books, if everyone is still interested? February is @jlhammar , April is @LeahBergen , June is @quietjenn , August is @rubyslippersreads , October is @Aimeesue , and December is @andrew61 . 3d
quietjenn I'm game for more #PersephoneClubbing! I'll start to ponder options, but won't post until a) we are sure things will continue and b) our first two months have been posted. 3d
rubyslippersreads I‘m definitely interested in an excuse to add to my Persephone collection. 😉 3d

Fidelity: A Novel | Susan Glaspell

Set in early 1900s Iowa, the return of Ruth to the small town she left years with another woman‘s husband, has unexpected consequences as everyone is forced to confront their feelings about her and her actions. This book surprised me so many times and although times have changes I found this more thought provoking than expected because of how sympathetically the characters are treated.

Reggie This was free on Amazon kindle. Sounds great. Thanks! 2w

DRAAAAAMAAAAA! What else can one expect from Olympians, honestly? While I admit I occasionally get tired of the 'will they, won't they' that is the backbone of this series, it continues to have relatable conversations about relationships, and there was an important confrontation I'd been waiting on, in this volume. For now, still interested in continuing.

I‘m still not completely comfortable with dark contemporary romance and would probably melt with embarrassment if anyone I knew IRL caught me reading it, but I loved this. Even without the steamy bits, and the mafia violence, this was well-written and engaging. There‘s a well developed plot and the relationship growth between the MCs is believable. It takes inspiration from Hades and Persephone, which is something I can‘t resist.

BarbaraBB Great review and confession 😃🧡 3w
DGRachel @BarbaraBB Thanks! I couldn‘t bring myself to review the prequel novella. It was sorely lacking in plot. LOL 3w
BarbaraBB Ha 🤣 3w

It's getting addictive... You just want to know what happens next.

Rachel Smythe integrates very smoothly phones and social media into her stories, which actually few authors manage to do well. It's really a plus for me.

A lot of interesting themes too: sexual violence, toxic relationships, boundaries, love, friendship, etc.

This is a cute book about Greenery Street, a lovely street with small houses, perfectly suited for newlyweds. Felicity and Ian do move there and we follow them through their first year of marriage. Set in the early 20th century it feels very old-fashioned but that‘s exactly the charm of the book. A light pick.

#WeeklyForecast 44/23

I am to finish Acorns, which I am loving! Next will be the tagged. Both others are for wrapping up some challenges. I started We Were Liars already and it is way too YA for me. We Came We Saw We Left is for #ReadingTheAmericas23.

Librarybelle Oh! We Came, We Saw, We Left looks interesting…hope it‘s a good one! 1mo
squirrelbrain I‘ve not heard of Acorns before and it sounds great. I too am in that ‘wrapping up challenges‘ kind of mood. 😃 1mo
youneverarrived Tagged book is a good one 👍 1mo
