Generally a historical romance and an easy read. I am sure some sections of it ( especially the Lord Melbourne and Queen Victoria relationship) has been made larger than life but the book does follow the rest of history (or at least what I know of it) fairly accurately. This book is supposed to be what the television series is based on so am looking forward to watching that.

This was an impressive debut from Angie Kim. A riveting courtroom drama with authentic characters. The mystery will draw you in but it's the powerful, honest portrayal of parenthood, disability care, and immigration that will make you fall. One of my favorite reads this year!

Raw and compelling view on addiction. Made me start an open dialogue with my kids. Worth the read for every parent!

I resisted this story because I have a teen daughter. It‘s very well written, and a fast, intriguing read. Suicide trigger but the perspective is different because the narrator is a group of young boys infatuated with the Lisbon girls. I thank @annebogel and the #whatshouldireadnext podcast for the recommendation. Without hearing how good it was I never would have read this. Check off V for the #litsyAtoZ challenge! @BookishMarginalia

Ruthiella I listened to this on audio too- Dan Stevens - he did a fantastic job! 2w
Andrew65 @Ruthiella Yes it is the same narrator, and he is doing an excellent job. One of the best audiobooks I have listened to in a while. 2w
Tove_Reads Sadly, I was a bit disappointed 2w
Andrew65 @Tove_Reads Started well but fell off a bit in the second half. Finished it today. Certainly not up to the first book! 2w

I only got in 10 books this month (mostly because I spent three weeks on Middlegame) but four of them were 5⭐ and some of the best I've read all year!

Middlegame was just such a standout - I can't say enough good things about it.

Not so great with stats:
Goodreads - 131/100
#booked2019 - 0/6 (total 18/24)
#litsyatoz - 0/26 (total 24/26)
