Fighting Silence | Aly Martinez

Pickpick

4/5 ⭐️

I‘ve had Aly Martinez on my radar for a while and kept putting her off for some reason. #bookbonanza19 brought her to the top of the list now. I‘m enjoying this series more than I thought in the beginning. I‘m looking forward to starting the next book.

It was good, but I really struggled to get into it. I‘m not a fan of romance novels where everything is based on a lie. #romance #romantsy

I‘ve been sitting on this review for a while. I read the 4th book in the series first and liked it enough to try the series from the beginning. This first one though, you can definitely follow the 50 Shades fandom. There was also character mixup, 2 different guys being called Jake, when one was supposed to be Jack but you only knew that if read the series out of order.

Since I liked the 4th book but not the 1st one I‘m giving it a so-so.

So far I‘ve only read her Sinner‘s Tribe MC series and enjoyed them so I thought I‘d read another series by her :)

The woman in white | Wilkie COLLINS

Pickpick

This Victorian mystery about a cunning conspiracy with elements of Gothic and suspense really held my interest. The carefully crafted plot, fascinating & memorable characters, & the oppressive settings really work well. Marian is intelligent, loyal & resourceful, a woman with a #fighter spirit during times of women inequality. Count Fosco is devilishly charming & uncanny. Told in multiple narratives,it‘s mesmerising & witty at parts.Definite pick.

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover

#GetMovin #Fighter

Can't say I enjoyed listening to the audio book of this powerful memoir-it's painful, disturbing & often frustrating-but it's also compelling & Tara Westover is a fighter-going from no education in a fundamentalist family rife with mental illness & abuse to a Ph.D. Memoirs are tricky as they're based on the POV of the one remembering & writing-but even if only part of Tara's story is what really happened-it's more than enough.

DebinHawaii The audio narration by Julia Whelan was excellent too. 👍👍 2y
Cinfhen Great review!! And as much as I found this hard to believe, I believed her 100% !! Awesome choice 2y
DebinHawaii @Cinfhen Thank you! I believed her too. I was looking up her family online and reading a bit about about their responses and still believe her. 😱 2y

Mildred Pierce | James M. Cain

Pickpick

This is such a great classic about family tragedy. Cain wrote and developed dislikable and despicable characters well. Mildred is a single mother trying to make ends meet in the 30‘s and must take a job that she and her nasty daughter feel is beneath her. Mildred becomes a success but spends much of her time with loser men or trying to win the love of her hateful daughter Veda who is one of my least favorite characters ever!
