Based on true events and interviews, this book tells the story of the Soviet pogrom against the Baltic states via a young girl and her family. It‘s a hard read but knowing people died and survived thru these conditions the reader feels obligated to hear their story. There is an important back story, too, about the effect of communism on real lives. 4 ⭐️

(Available on Kindle Unlimited) This was definitely interesting and unique. It started out strong and I was enthralled by the story but it became a little silly and confusing. The variety of characters was hard to follow. It's written and paced well. I would have liked it more if the ending was better. Overall, entertaining and enjoyable. A solid 3 stars.

The coming of age story of a girl grappling with living the life she wants to live versus the life her parents want her to live, all while coming to terms with her sister's death and posthumously learning her sister wasn't who she thought she was. A good listen but nothing amazing.

Some good moments, but this would have been better as a short story. This is my second book by Green and frankly, I just don‘t get the hype. His brother‘s book was far superior.

Oh well, at least this gave me #Indiana (author from)! #ReadingUSA2019

Laughterhp Yeah, I don‘t really like John Green either, but I also don‘t read or like a lot of YA. 2h
Librarybelle I‘ve only read one of his - An Abundance of Katherine‘s - I liked it, but not enough to gush over 2h

Rashad is absent again today.

This book had been on my tbr forever! I'm so glad I finally got around to reading it. It is right up there with The Hate You Give. It should be required reading in high school. Another great example of a story told in alternating perspectives, it tells about Rashad's brutal treatment at the hands of a white police officer.

Reading_in_the_meadow My son has a few years before he will be able to process this, but it is already in the stack of books I've set aside to share with him. 3h

I wasn‘t sure what to expect with this book, but it was amazing. There‘s some dark stuff in there, and it‘s not all realistic, but the mystery is great! Definitely recommend.

After taking a day off from reading yesterday due to a headache & not feeling the best, I‘ve finished my 2nd book of #24b4Monday & #SummersEndReadathon. About 1/2 through my 3rd book too, so making decent time due to the extra day. Loved this book. One of my faves of “Twisted Tales”. Really enjoyed the tie in of Chinese Underworld Mythology & hoe of kept with the thematic spirit of Mulan.

Clwojick Sounds great! I‘m stacking 📚 1h
Jess_Franzino @Clwojick I clouldn‘t put it down! I love Underworld mythology and Mulan as a whole. So, was a total win ♥️ 1h
