Little Souls: A Novel | Sandra Dallas

Mehso-so

Set in 1918 during the influenza outbreak, this novel follows Lutie and her sister Helen as they navigate a changing world, filled with war, murder, heartbreak, and child trauma. There are so many dark layers to this novel, so definitely not a light read. Lutie‘s naivety was at times very distracting to me, and as I listened (the narration is great!), I would roll my eyes.

Thanks to #NetGalley and the publisher for this ALC!

Aims42 Thank you for the honest review! Sounds like one I can hold off until Mt. TBR dwindles down lol 2mo
Librarybelle @Aims42 You‘re welcome! 😂 I‘ve seen a ton of very positive reviews for this, so maybe I‘m not the best judge for this one. 2mo

KristiAhlers Sounds like they tried to cram too much turmoil to do much justice to any of it. 2mo
Cinfhen The cover definitely draws me in. But like @Aims42 said…. 2mo
Librarybelle @KristiAhlers Admittedly, every time one of these elements was added to the end plot, I thought “okay…so the characters are tackling that too.” 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2mo
Librarybelle @Cinfhen I really like the cover too! 2mo

I really wanted to love this one. I had never heard of Elizabeth Blackwell (the first woman to receive a medical degree in the United States), so I thought I would be so interested in this book. I just found it hard to keep picking it up. The Information was good, but something was missing #aboutsisters #booked2022

Cinfhen Cool choice! I wanted to read this one too, but I saw other reviews who felt the same way as you. 2mo

#BookReport

It‘s been a while since I picked up a Walt Longmire book, but I enjoyed book 7 so much that I read the short story between and book 8 this week.
Kira-Kira is for #Booked2022 #aboutsisters and I enjoyed it.
Calvin, I Eat Poop, and The Library Fish are children‘s books and all are picks. Calvin made me tear up a little, but I Eat Poop was my favorite.

Cinfhen The children‘s books look fabulous!! Love your background 😍 3mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen Thank you! 💗 3mo

A little draggy in parts but overall a pleasant read.
I loved joining the author on this book of the overlooked Bennet sister.
Read for #pemberlittens but also considering this for #aboutsisters for #booked2022

17/22 This book was silly but fun. It took me a little while to get into it but I definitely wanted to know how it resolved. As a book riot listener it did suffer slightly from being over hyped for me. But in a challenging month easy listens like this were exactly what I needed. 3⭐️ #roadtripUSA2022 #California #booked2022 #aboutsisters

Cinfhen I totally get what you mean!! Sometimes our brains don‘t want to work so hard 😜 3mo

A few years ago on Indie Bookstore Day, I chose this ARC as my gift for making a purchase. Finally pulled it off the shelf for #booked2022 #aboutsisters When Rose and Ivy‘s father dies, the sisters travel from Albany to NYC to search for their mysterious brother. A Speakeasy, bobbed hair, anarchists and flappers. Love a NYC setting. Quick easy read. A few tears. If you love the Roaring 20‘s, this one‘s for you.
⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Cinfhen Great cover!!! 3mo

This is hard to describe without spoilers. It was extremely powerful and emotional. The audio version lets the rhythm of the verse flow flawlessly. Another great read. #Booked2022 #AboutSisters @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage

Clap When You Land | Elizabeth Acevedo

Pickpick

As usual Elizabeth Acevedo has written something that matters. This novel in verse is inspired by the AA587 plant crash on Nov. 12 2001 which was the second deadliest plant crash in US history, but since it wasn‘t caused by terrorism and almost exclusively affected the NY Dominican community, was all too easily forgotten. It explores the idea of relative privilege when everyone around you is suffering to some significant degree.

4thhouseontheleft Excellent review! 5mo

The Sweeney Sisters | Lian Dolan

I am all about the family dramas this month!

The three Sweeney sisters‘ famous author father has died. He was keeping hidden from them his knowledge of a fourth sister born from an affair AND a tell-all memoir he wanted posthumously published. Of course, there is drama and a bit of romance in each sisters lives separately while trying to get along in extenuating circumstances after being spread out for years. A definite lighter fare pick!

KellyK I ❤️ family drama as long as it‘s someone else‘s family. 😬 5mo
Cinfhen Sounds fun!! I‘ll look for it on #Scribd 5mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I think you‘ll like it when you want some 🧠🍭!! (edited) 5mo
