Providence: A Novel | Caroline Kepnes
Mehso-so

I picked up this book as part of #booksparks #src2019. As i read, i realized i should be very interested in this book as a Lovecraft and Frankenstein fan. However, i feel like this book tried to do too many things and succeeded at none of them. It‘s a love story without romance. It‘s a supernatural thriller without excitement. It‘s a mystery with no crime. Too much focus on characters‘ interior lives for my tastes. It‘s fine, but not great.

A Brightness Long Ago | Guy Gavriel Kay

Pickpick

A fantasy set in an era that evokes the Italian Renaissance told by the main character as a reflection back on a memorable time in his life. This is one of those books where the character development and focus on human nature is where the real beauty lies, but the plotline holds it's own here too. The inclusion of some Pride Month representation was a nice surprise, as well.

4 out of 5 stars. #booksparks #booksharks

1.28.19 Started The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides last night and flew through the first 100 pages. A psychological thriller that focuses on a woman who commits a violent act against her husband and has refused to talk since. I chose this for January‘s book of the month, who else picked this one? Let‘s talk 📖 #botm #bookshark #booksparks

1.6.19 Sunday came so fast 😭 Spending mine relaxing and reading The Birthday by Carol Wyer. This book has been interesting from the start. I have to say I have been impressed by the amount of great books as options for the kindle unlimited.
Anybody with ebook experience, I‘d love your tips!

jenniferajanes I read ebooks almost exclusively. Kindle Unlimited does have a great selection. Be sure to sign up for the Amazon First Reads emails. You get one (two this month) free pre-release book from Editors‘ Picks each month if you‘re a Prime member. If not, it‘s $1.99. I also use ereaderiq.com to track the cost of ebooks on my wish list. It emails you when the cost drops. 6mo

jenniferajanes I got a new Paperwhite for Christmas, and I love it! I have no room to store physical books anymore, so almost my entire library is on my Kindle. I think that book is on my TBR list. You can do it! Happy reading! 7mo
