If I had one complaint about this one is how the ending seemed harsh in how abrupt it seemed. This is #reesewitherspoon book club pick and I loved it. There was something so romantic and heartbreaking about how the first Oxford Dictionary came to be and How Esme found her place. Have Kleenex handy and settle in. #bookclubread #mayread

This has got to be one of the most charming stories I‘ve read in a awhile. All of the characters, to include the octopus 🐙 really come alive on the page for the reader. It‘s also a story that will remain with you after the last page is read. #bookclubread #washingtonstate #readingtheunitedstates

marleed I thought so too. A completely different reading experiences, but when I was done I was left with the fells I experienced last year reading the noted. And that‘s a very good thing! 2w
KristiAhlers @marleed yes! I read that book also and was so charmed by all the characters and storyline! I love discovering reading gems like these. 2w

I belong to 4 different book clubs and this is a book choice for one of them. I found this to be an emotional and amazing read. I truly enjoy how this author crafts her characters and her storylines in such a way you honestly don‘t want to put the book down. This is the second of her titles I‘ve read in two weeks. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ easy #bookclubread #readingchallenge2022

charl08 4 book clubs? Wow. I am in two, one online and one at work, and they *always* seem to clash, leading me to scrabble to finish on time! 1mo
KristiAhlers @charl08 I find if I dedicate myself to one book at a time I can normally get them all in. But, if a book doesn‘t speak to me I opt out for the month. That‘s happened a couple of times. 1mo

I adored everything about this book. From scenes from a dogs POV to Elizabeth and the lessons she learns as she goes through life. So many engaging characters. Seldom do I believe books deserve the hype some get when a new release comes out. This one does and more. You‘ll laugh, you‘ll cry and you‘ll smile. Serious subject matter but covered in a way that makes the reader feel good about time spent with book in hand #bookclubread

Not only is there a great story between the covers of this book but you learn as well. I think this is the one time an audible book won‘t be as good as there are pages of teaching. Took me a second to catch on that dialogue wasn‘t tagged with quotes but otherwise solid read! #bookclubread #reesewitherspoonbookclub #readingchallenge2022

So this is my book club selection and I‘m so glad I read it. It‘s a mind blow! So very good. So much creativity! This is the first time I‘ve read this author and I‘m going to hunt down her back list. Sci-fi time travel read and the ending makes the read totally worth it. #readingchallenge2022 #bookclubread

Another book club pick that is making me rethink book clubs to be honest. Katy the MC is obnoxious, unlikable and frankly unsympathetic. Oh and selfish to boot. I get people all grieve differently but this…and what should be a clever time travel trope is not executed well at all. This is my second time reading this author and my last. #bookclubread.

Have you read #valenciaandvalentine? I loved this book! It was both heartfelt and charming while giving an honest depiction of living with ocd/intrusive thoughts. With beautiful prose and a twist ending, this story will stay with you long after you finish it. 💙✨📚
