4/5🌟
Great for fans of Educated by Tara Westover; very similar. Would love to see the movie.

3/5 🌟
This book was a lot different than I expected. Although I loved the idea for about childhood stories being real, there were some things that brought my rating down. It‘s nicely written, but I felt it was a bit too long. The first half was very slow, and I almost DNF. However, if you stick with it, the second half is great. Also, it reads more like a YA novel than a middle grade. But it‘s a good transition book.

Beautiful story that nearly brought me to tears. The Audible version has fantastic narration. One of my favorites this year. ❤️

3/5🌟
Romance novels aren‘t really my thing, so it was a bit much for me. I feel like the whole Groundhog Day feel of the book really went off course midway through, like it was just a jumping off point for the story and not the focus. I felt kind of cheated. Also, people lift their chins a lot in this book, enough to make it feel weird. #readtheusa2020 #utah

Two books in one - the first story wasn't remotely Christmasy?? It didn't even take place in the winter!! I think an editor must have decided that "Gabriel's Angel" sounded like a Christmas story and plopped it in here ? Book two was okay, but I hate the trope where a woman's like "oh teehee I had your baby nine years ago & didn't bother telling you!!" But it was short so I powered through, mostly because I was excited about checking ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Oh boy! Your favorite trope and a non-holiday story?! At least it earned you some points and checked some challenge boxes. 💚 2y
TheAromaofBooks @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick - Right?? I couldn't believe it! Nora Roberts let me down this time! 😂 2y

When I checked this out, the librarian said it was a cute story & that I would like it. She was right. I haven‘t read this author before, but my sister just bought her new book. Loved the characters, esp Jack. Another sweet story. #readnosedreindeer @StayCurious #wintergames2020 26pts also, #readtheusa2020 for Alabama.

PaperbackPirate I loved Fried Green Tomatoes - she‘s such a good storyteller! 💚❤️ 2y
StayCurious I'm glad you liked it! 2y

This is a quick, sweet read about finding a family. Romance but also a little girl who loses her mother & asks Santa for a mom. Group read for #readnosedreindeer & #wintergames2020 @StayCurious This also knocks off Washington for the #readtheusa2020 challenge.

It was an okay read just really not my type of book. Abit of an anti climax to such a great reading challenge 🤔
