I tried… almost bailed but hung on. I thought surely an almost 50 year old would enjoy this classic by Hemingway. Nope… lots of drinking and more drinking. A girl friendzones a guy…and there‘s a bull fight. I wish I knew what I was supposed to ‘get‘ from this book! So sorry to all the lovers of this one. #MarchBookSpin #bookspin

TheAromaofBooks When I read this one several years ago I noted that I never did run into a story 😂 4mo

This was was not your normal rom-com as friendship between Maisie and Willa took center stage. Willa is getting over finding her fiancé together with her best friend. Maisie desperately needs a bridesmaid and a friend. Willa is hired for the role. Such a sweet book where true friendships develop. And of course there‘s brewing relationship with Willa and one of the groomsmen!

Whew- squeezed in this November #bookspin! Fresh romcom with Mia, a famous actress in disguise, and Paul, an author, meeting one another in Paris. Not initially looking for one another but relationship develops. Left me wanting to read more books by Levy.

I‘ve read page turners- yet this is a page turner that I had to scream, walk away for a few minutes, and jump back in. Favorite Hannah book. 13 year old Leni moves to Alaska in the mid 70s, with her father with post Vietnam PTSD and mother who still loves the man she met prior to the war. Leni and her family learn how to live in the ‘Great Alone‘ with all the neighborly support it brings. Love, toxicity, and danger all around. #doublespin for Nov

The SEG Club follows the lives of 4 young women- 2 Jewish, 2 Italian, as they make their way through immigrant life in the early 1900‘s. Set in Boston‘s North End, you are immersed as traditional expectations meet an emerging new American lifestyle. Loved this fast read! #SeptemberDoubleSpin #finallycatchingup

Hard to read for content- one has to be in a place to receive this story. Organizationally I was unsettled between storylines and point of view. Worth a read, skip the audiobook as there are text features and graphics that you will miss. #julydoublespin #betterlatethannever

Tore through this audiobook! Such an interesting historical fiction account of Mileva Maric, Einstein‘s brilliant first wife. It‘s a little hard to personally reconcile how Albert treated her with his historical genius persona. Have to keep in mind that this is a fictional account of real people. Still an engaging read! #bookspin #Septemberbookspin @TheAromaofBooks

Initially I was looking for a copy of The Flatshare but substituted this one instead. Love O‘Leary‘s light writing style and her characters- an almost eighty year old grandmother from the Yorkshire Dales switching abodes with her workaholic 20 something granddaughter from London. Reminiscent of The Holiday…Love, friendships and adventures await! #bookspinbingo
