The Overstory: A Novel | Richard Powers

I thought the first part was really good. The introductions to the characters and how trees played into their individual histories had me like 😍🌲 But then the rest was very up and down for me. After their great set up, I thought the characters felt pretty meh after that and things moved at a pace that felt too slow in some places and too fast in others. ⬇️

shadowspeak17 I‘m using this for #booked2019 #RemindsYouOfYourHappyPlace because I love being around trees. 😊

Cinfhen Exactly how I felt about this book!!! After such a careful and beautifully crafted introduction (about 200 pages) this book became a CHORE to get through. Our bookclub all felt similar. 3mo

A distance swimmer and a lost baby whale. Set near Seal Beach and Catalina Island, Ca. 5⭐️. Such a feel good read. If you love the ocean and marine mammals, read this.

A beautiful little book about love and friendship in later life. And other people. Other people are the worst 💔

Thanks for sending me this @kaysworld1 - it was lovely to read it again.

After 4 years at Tulane I will always hold New Orleans #closetome 💚💛💜 My Mom ( @Mdargusch ) went to High school and Tulane with the author of this book! So I chose to read it for #booked2019 #remindsyouofyourhappyplace. Savic really captured the peculiar essence and eccentric personalities that make up NOLA but the story left me wanting more... #anglophileapril

Reviewsbylola I didn‘t know about this one but I recognize the name! 10mo
Mdargusch It‘s also a debut novel if you need a book for that prompt. 😁 (edited) 10mo

I read “The Truth About Forever” for the first time when I was seventeen. I loved it just as much then as I do now, on the eve of my 30th birthday.

I love the writing style, the well-written characters, the emotion behind the storylines and romances. Wes is still one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends. Most of all, I love how reading any of Sarah Dessen‘s books is just like coming home.

Piano Tide: A Novel | Kathleen Dean Moore
post image

Okay so I've never been to Alaska (where this book is technically set) but I do love the Pacific NW. Plus, Moore is my favorite nature writer so I'm going to go ahead & pick this one for #remindsyouofyourhappyplace. It's filled to the brim with nature. Forests, oceans, storms, animals. Toss in a few quirky characters, a piano, and I'm happy as a clam. #booked2019

Cinfhen No, but I‘m highly intrigued 10mo
valeriegeary @Cinfhen a mysterious woman shows up in this small seaside town and the first scene she's dragging this upright piano off the ferry.... That's trouble waiting to happen, if you ask me. 😄🎹 10mo
Cinfhen I‘ll say...and how‘d she get that piano onto the ferry??? That‘s some heavy lifting 😉😂 10mo
valeriegeary @Cinfhen they tell you how she gets it off the ferry but not how she got it on...... 🤔 10mo
