Not as compelling as the first book, but still makes you think about what you would do in his shoes. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cinfhen I haven‘t read this one, even though I‘ve read and re-read NIGHT many many times. Thanks for reminding me to continue on 💔 4mo

All done with this beautiful story of a reclusive man who cares for birds ,develops a friendship with a young girl who brings an injured goose to him. When Dunkirk needs boats he goes to save many lives + a legend emerges of a boat + goose. With another short tale equally moving I was wiping my eyes.
I love a 2nd hand bk with a message, but wonder who Eric was !

A novella about a family who has newly come into wealth. It tackles topics such as capitalism, corruption, marriage, women's standing in society and money within this slim volume.
Read for #booked2021 for #under150pages and #india for #readingasia2021

I know this is a dramatic classic, and there's some deep meaning, but I just didn't get it, and honestly, didn't care to get it. Maybe if I actually watched the play instead of reading it, I'd have a different opinion?

Another #Booked2021 prompt completed: #under150pages

Ummm. I thought there would be sex.

This was a quick-listen novella, that was cute enough, I guess, if you like those perfect-people-fall-for-other-perfect-people kinda romances. The narrators were good.

I guess I thought there would be sex, though.

This was my #BookSpin for July, and also my #Under150Pages book for #Booked2021, even without sex. At all. Like none.


Daisey 😂 😂 Based on the cover and description, I would have expected the same. Nice of you to enlighten any future readers with your review. 7mo
BarbaraBB Great review 😂😂 7mo
julesG 😂😂 I think this is a one off by this author. 7mo

Still trying to play catch up from the books I read earlier this year. I am in love with this series. This is a very short prequel but a good one. I bought more of the series on audible for super cheap on Prime Day! Can‘t wait for more! #seriesread #booked2021 #under150pages

TheSpineView Great job! 👍📖 7mo

Published in 1918, a soldier returns from war shell shocked causing him to forget the last 15 years of his life. The women who love him- his wife, cousin, and first love each try to deal with what the changes in his reality mean for their own. This book may be short but it does not lack impact, especially in its strong ending. Very much enjoyed this one.

Is there anything more disappointing than being told your Kindle story is 96 pages and discovering it‘s actually only 38 with a preview of the next book? Can I even count this for my #under150pages for #booked2021? 😭. Ok. Review: I love this series and I love X and Joey and this was a nice short story in between the big books and I can‘t wait to read book six in this series. Hurwitz writes a great thriller.

Cinfhen Totally counts!!! But that‘s annoying!! Hope you didn‘t pay $12.99 for that one 😁😉😘 9mo
DGRachel @Cinfhen Thank you! I think it was $2.99, but maybe only $1.99. I can‘t remember. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I‘m just glad to be able to use if for a challenge. 9mo
