Nothing to See Here | Kevin Wilson

Pickpick

Hilarious! I am kicking myself for not getting this #BOTM pick, but now I'll get it as my bday freebie. I loved the MC, Lillian. Her humor was just what I needed! Bittersweet at times, this quirky novel showcases a wide variety of bad parenting lol, but ends on a hopeful note. I never knew combustible kids could be so fun! If you like quirky humor with a side of absurdity, I don't think you'll be disappointed. The #audio is fantastic! 4.5⭐️s!

Rachel.Rencher I had reservations about this one but now I think I need to grab it! 1w
Lynnsoprano Just read the review of this in the Washington Post this morning. Hi definitely need to read it! 1w

lele1432 @Rachel.Rencher I know what you mean. The description sounded so...out there lol. And I typically don't do magical realism. But I have to hand it to Wilson, his writing made everything seem so normal! I hope you like it! 1w
lele1432 @Lynnsoprano I was so pleasantly surprised! I've never read him before, but I actually have his other one from BOTM and just never got to it. Now I want to bump it up my TBR! 1w

Dear Haiti, Love Alaine | Maika Moulite, Maritza Moulite
post image
Pickpick

Absolutely♥️this! A tale of human nature where nothing is quite what it seems. Alaine is a hilarious, snarky MC who must come to terms w/ complicated family dynamics & a life that will never be the same. Steeped in rich Haitian culture & history, family curses, a charity start-up, & commentary on sometimes problematic foreign aid, this was a most enjoyable reading experience. The Great Bahni Turpin narrated & I highly recommend the audio! 4.5⭐️s!

Sleepless Nights | Elizabeth Hardwick

Pickpick

Just realized I never reviewed this. Probably between a pick and so-so, but I'm going with a pick because the parts I enjoyed were pretty luminous. Other sections were less engaging, but overall I found this group of memories that go back and forth through time to be interesting. I appreciated Hardwick's eye for acute observation! 3⭐️s #NYRBClub #NYRB #Classics #PopSugarReadingChallenge #PopSugar2019 #Pop19 #BookWithUnconventionalChapters

Recursion | Blake Crouch
post image
Pickpick

Wow, I think I liked this even more than Dark Matter! The 1st half was a little bogged down by the science of what created FMS, but around pg 200 the action & suspense ratchets up & this mind-bender ultimately shows how humans can take a good thing & use it for cataclysmic disaster. Face-meltingly scary stuff. How willing are we to accept pain in life with the good? Are we really living if we have "cheat codes"? This needs to be a film! 4⭐️s!??

lele1432 I will say I had to switch from the audio to print. The male narrator, who also did Dark Matter, was good, but the added female narrator was almost robotic and really took away from Helena's POV. I flew through the pages once I switched. 4w

In Florida for a race weekend and a tropical storm hit! Luckily the big race is tomorrow, tonight is just a 5k and the rain stopped. But I finished this but of fluff, and crossed of a book with sugar in the title for the #popsugarreadingchallenge

The Chain | Adrian McKinty
post image
Mehso-so

This had a great premise, but as other reviewers noted, kind of fizzled towards the end. The idea of an organization forcing child kidnap for ransom was intriguing, & I even liked the background on who was behind the chain. But I wasn't drawn in by any characters except maybe the kids, the bad guys were a bit cartoonishly evil, & by the end the chapters were too short & jumped around too much. Lots of suspension of disbelief required. 2.75⭐️s

Dancing with Myself | Billy Idol

I enjoyed this memoir as I was a huge fan of his in the 80s. I learned a lot about Idol that I didn‘t already know.
