I sometimes listen to audio books while I work or do chores. This is the first time I felt like I really wish I hadn‘t ‘multitasked‘ a book. I loved this story and the characters and the message so much, I wish I had given it it‘s proper full attention and read each word. I will probably read this one again ( which I never do ) so I can enjoy each and every word. If this is on your TBR pile/list. Stop everything and read it.

I really liked this one. Lots of twists. I predicted the ending, but was ok with it. I liked the anticipation of how the story would unfold.

Supermarket | Bobby Hall

I picked this book up ( or rather borrowed from the ebook collection at my library ) because it was set in a supermarket and I have worked in the grocery business for over 20 years. This book is not about a grocery store or the grocery business. It is about mental health and mental illness. It was not a very well written book, but it did provide a perspective on mental illness I had not read before. I would recommend but with low expectations.

Totally lived up to the hype. So good, a great pic for a creepy October book. I did not see the ending coming.

This was a good one. I predicted the twist at the end, but enjoyed it anyway. Amazon first read ( I‘ve been lucky with those, most I‘ve really liked )

I was really worried that this book would not live up to the reviews and comments I had read, but it did not disappoint. A page turner from start to finish.

This was a confusing book. I like some twists and turns but these weren‘t great, poorly done and anticlimactic.

Wow!! What a story. She has led an amazing life. Unbelievable bravery as a women in areas of the world where women are treated much differently. This is a very different read then what I usually choose and not sure a fully understood some of the references to geography and politics of war, but I‘m glad I picked it up. Feeling grateful for the luxury of the US.

Just finished this. Supposed to be an HBO series staring Kaley Cuoco soon. It was a good read, I think it would make a good movie, not sure about continuing material for a series.

I only picked this up because I was going on a trip to Paris. I didn‘t care for it.

Maybe I‘m crazy . . . But this book reminds me of To Kill a Mockingbird. The outcast, the prejudice, the trial . . .

This was a very strange book . . . Readable, didn‘t get bored . . . But very weird story.

Just finished this. Such a moving story with wonderful imagery. Makes you want to spend the day with your family making pasta and sauce from scratch.

This is a must read for parents with teenagers, athletes or not. While not necessarily entertaining, it was incredibly eye-opening . The struggle to transition from high school to college was surprising to me. The pressure these kids put on themselves is unbelievable.
“ One study found that an average high school student today likely deals with as much anxiety as did a psychiatric pastiest in the 1950s”

“People don‘t come into our lives by accident” Reading this one outside with my hubby ( he‘s reading Michael Connelly‘s The Crossing ) I love the ‘never give up‘ and ‘love always wins‘ spirit of this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Absolutely Amazing!! This is a smart, well written, memoir. This woman‘s childhood is unbelievable in so many ways and she describes her story with such honesty. Something that is appalling to one person, she describes how it can easily be the norm for another.

Devoured this book and I‘m not usually a fan of historical fiction. But the spy action and girl power vibe of this book kept me from putting it down! Highly recommend ( but not for teens, some explicit scenes I wouldn‘t be comfortable with my teenager reading )

CoffeeNBooks I loved this book! I can't wait to read her new book The Huntress soon! 10mo

“So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.” Just finished this sweet story, everyone‘s path is different. Things hit some people harder than others. What takes your breath away?

This was a surprisingly fun read. It was light and quick. I thought it was going to be super cheesy, but it was actually clever and funny. Not a lot of depth, but I wasn‘t expecting and didn‘t need it. Being from San Diego, I especially enjoyed the San Diego references. They were spot on. I think if you were expecting something more complex you might be disappointed.

“ The library is a prerequisite to let citizens make use of their right to information and freedom of speech. Free access to information is necessary in a democratic society, for open debate and creation of public opinion.”

This is beautifully written love letter to public libraries.

Acoleman Thanks, still trying to figure it out, but so far I like it 11mo
