Tower of Dawn | Sarah J Maas

Pickpick

I read Tower of Dawn and Empire of Storms at the same time and while it felt a bit tedious, I‘m glad I did it this way. It helped me have a better understanding when events that happen in TOD were going on during the events that happen in EOS. Overall I thought this was a solid installment in the TOG series.

Alfrazier21 No worries!! The storylines take place at the same time..so to get the whole picture at once, some fans suggested reading them together. 1mo

The Beach 🏖

In the summer I like snacks that are light and refreshing. I love fruits and sugar free popsicles 🍉 🍦

Water, but I also like to make a gallon of caffeine free iced tea! Lipton has some nice summery flavors (watermelon, mango) ☕️ 💧

Sunscreen haha I‘m a redhead so I‘m not leaving the house without it 🧴

The pool! I‘ll spend a whole day swimming, lounging and reading. 🏊‍♀️ 📖 ☀️

This was an ok read. Definitely did not live up to The Couple Next Door for me. The story felt slow and too drawn out. The book seriously could have been 100 pages shorter.

A Spark of Light | Jodi Picoult
post image
Mehso-so

I don‘t read Jodi Picoult books often, but when I do, I expect an emotional roller coaster. Unfortunately, for me, that wasn‘t what I found in this book. A Spark of Light is obviously a well researched and thought provoking story; however it almost felt like facts were being thrown at me so often that I couldn‘t develop a connection with the characters. I‘m also not quite sure how I feel about timeline. Overall, this was an ok read for me.

Purrfectpages I bailed on this one for similar reasons. 3mo

The River at Night | Erica Ferencik

This book fell flat for me. The story started off slow and while it picked up when the ladies were on the river, it just didn‘t have that thrill factor I was looking for. I didn‘t connect with any of the characters and found the ending to be a bit of a let down.

I‘m not one to read romance. I typically avoid it at all cost, but when I heard that this story was about a woman with Asperger‘s who wanted to get better at intimacy, I was intrigued. To my surprise, I couldn‘t put the book down! It was funny, sexy and romantic, albeit a little far fetched at times, but it was cute so I could forgive some of that. The characters were well developed and the story was captivating. Overall this was a very fun read!

I liked this one, but didn‘t love it. While it was thought provoking, I didn‘t connect with any of the characters. I actually felt myself more drawn to secondary characters (Olive, Big Roy, Carlos) than I did Little Roy, Celeste or Andre. I understand that the situation was difficult no matter which way you looked at it, I couldn‘t for the life of me understand Celeste‘s actions at the end. Overall, it was a good engaging read.

A thrilling finale to The Illuminae Files trilogy! For some reason I didn‘t love this story as much as the first two. Maybe it‘s because I waited so long to pick it up? I‘m not sure, but I wasn‘t as invested in the characters and at times the story seemed to drag a bit. Overall though, I have to say it was a solid ending and I still highly recommend the series!

I seem to be in the minority on this one, but I found #TheSilentPatient to be just ok. I didn‘t connect with any of the characters and while I typically love psychological thrillers, this one really dragged for me. It did have a few decent twists and turns, but overall this one was just “meh”.

While I enjoyed #Voices , I didn‘t love it as much as #Bull 🤷‍♀️ I feel like if I would have known more about Joan of Arc‘s story going into the book, I would have liked this one more. I did think the format of the book was lovely. The story was told in different formats of verse by Joan as well as other people and objects she encountered in her life. At times the verse on the page was even in the shape of the object telling the story.
