Beautiful Day: A Novel | Elin Hilderbrand

Pickpick

If you‘re up for lots of wedding drama amidst the rich people of Nantucket, then look no further! I wasn‘t in love with these characters but the drama was compelling as always. EH has surely mastered the art of writing about dysfunctional families! 4⭐️

The Beach Club: A Novel | Elin Hilderbrand

This is EH‘s first book, and while I enjoyed it okay, you can tell her writing has come a long way. It feels a little clunky and I wasn‘t really a fan of any of the main characters, but if you like EH I‘d still recommend grabbing it from the library. 3.5⭐️

I‘ve been on a huge Elin Hilderbrand kick lately and I really think her books are best consumed via #audiobook — they are more character driven and it‘s easier to pay attention, since sometimes it‘s hard not to let your mind wander while listening and multitasking. I loved this one because we got behind the scenes experience of working in a super fancy restaurant in Nantucket. It‘s nice seeing how the other half lives and the food descriptions ⬇️

marleed I spent last summer working down my Elin collection. I have one of her books left unread - just for kicks. And if I ever did make it to Nantucket I think I might be disappointed to find the community of people I‘ve grown to love - and I‘m sure would offer me a guest room - are fictional! 1w

Oh man another crying ending but I loved this book. TW for sexual assault but it is only a brief bit near the end (I skipped over those few pages and could still keep up with the plot). Great beach read, even if you're not at the beach.

Nantucket Nights: A Novel | Elin Hilderbrand

Mehso-so

Now on the one hand, this book was so hard to put down & I listened to the 11-hour audiobook in one day. On the other hand, what a huge bunch of despicable awful people! Except for Kayla, who was a pushover also, there is not one single character in here who is likable. They are all awful. Also leaves you with a grubby feeling when a 40-something woman has an affair with her best friend‘s 18-year-old son. So gross, yet nonetheless compelling. 3⭐️

Although this was a little predictable, I still enjoyed it very much. I love spending time in Nantucket. I hope EH gives us a sequel to this one. This was the perfect beach read🏝☀️🥥

I‘m hesitantly giving this a low pick. I have very mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, it was a compelling listen & I devoured it pretty quickly. So in that sense it‘s a good book. But I have some pretty serious issues with the main characters that infuriated me and especially made me want to smack Jake upside the head. A lot of their decisions make zero sense but if you can overlook that it‘s still a decent book. Just frustrating. 😤 3.5⭐️

Here‘s another EH book that reminds me of her Winter Street series and the dysfunctional Quinn family. Here we have a famous chef with 2 ex wives and a current one when he suddenly drops dead and they all have to come together and find a way to get along. Another pick. 4⭐️

Listening to this kicked off a huge spree of Elin Hilderbrand audiobooks for me. I got sucked into this one pretty fast. We get to see a recently departed wife and mother watch the aftermath of her death from afar and make sure her husband and kids are okay. It‘s not as depressing as it sounds and there are some lighthearted moments. All set on the beautiful island of Nantucket. 4⭐️
