Iris finds out that she has a terminal cancer at the age of 33. This book is about the blog she has left behind and the important people in her life.

I love finding a novel I can gobble up easily, while feeling so much. I was dubious about whether or not the communication between Iris' sister & former employer would feel forced, but I thought Adkins did a great job building up the lives of each, slowly revealing details to the other & still keeping Iris as their focus. Iris' blog posts, incorporating memories, illustrations and brutal, heartrending truths, were what really kept me going. 💔

MrBook Great review! As always! ☺️ 4d

How is this book not flying off the shelves?? Iris has already died by the time the book starts, but her voice is still present as she comes to terms with her cancer through her blog. We also get to see how a few of the people closest to her (her sister, her boss, and her boyfriend) are responding to their grief. Told through blogs, emails, and texts. This story is funny, raw, and wholy beautiful. One of my favorite reads of the year so far ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Hey Ladies! | Michelle Markowitz, Caroline Moss
Panpan

I can't believe I'm panning an epistolary novel, but I am. There's the bride, and then there's her alpha MoH. All about the bride and wedding. Didn't care if anyone had financial problems with any of the events, or in general. My favorite charger was Grace. Possibly followed by Morgan.

Kill me now, these women seem so self centered, how did they even end up as friends?

Meet Me at the Museum | Anne Youngson

Right now, #Paradise for me is an epistolary novel. 😁📝

Paradise the episode, is anything but paradise. A woman falsely makes electronics not work on a planet, in order to trap people there. There‘s also some questionable treatment of a man who is probably mentally ill, which I don‘t like. #StarTrekSummerJune

Crazeedi I ❤❤❤❤ meet me at the museum, a 5 star from last year! 2w

I read this on June 8th and gave it 3.5 ⭐️ on Good Reads. If anyone questions how we can form great friendships online with people we haven‘t met, refer them to this book. It‘s a collection of letters between Helene Hanff and the staff at a bookstore in London that starts in 1949 and lasts for 20 years.
