Klune‘s mind is fascinating! Everyone is talking about fantasy these days and they‘re referring to faeries or dragons, but this is a different kind of fantasy. An interesting take on death, afterlife, and in between. Full of emotions from grief and sadness to hilarity and love, all leading to people connecting to one another. Book #50 in 2024

My second book by this author and it seems she has a niche….small town issue involving closing down a beloved building and the people rallying to prevent it from happening. Very cute with fun characters, but I was hoping for a different plot. Book #49 in 2024

Wow. I‘m not sure how I found this book, but it‘s amazing and full of great quotes and connection. My anxiety isn‘t as crippling as Aza‘s, however reading about someone who has it was cathartic. Maybe it‘s just turtles, all the way down. Book #48 in 2024

One of my favorite books in middle school, I decided to read it again 30 years later. I‘m not sure why I loved it so much back then, maybe it was my age and the idea that we‘re not all meant to be the same. The writing is choppy and the descriptions are lacking, but it‘s a good book. Book #47 in 2024

Eh, not sure about all the hype and I prob won‘t watch the movie. Lots of sex, if that‘s your thing you‘ll like the descriptions but I‘m not into super spicy books. Age gap romance✔️, full of lust✔️, and some wannabe feminism that doesn‘t quite land✔️. Massive heartbreak everyone sees coming but them. Book #46 in 2024

A very interesting take on the effect humans have on nature, set in 2042. The concept of nature fighting back in the form of “tree people” who live beyond the veil in an expansive cave system below ground is fascinating. The writing is slow, but the plot keeps moving. Book #45 in 2024

Dorothy is initially painted as a nosey, old bat but she quickly grew on me and I couldn‘t help but find her quirks endearing. A full cast of characters thrust together after several tragedies.

What a fun story! I love everything about Nora - her quirks, witty quips, her fun style and her independence. I liked how vulnerable Derek allowed himself to be. I really loved that there wasn‘t some big, stupid fight that forced them to realize their love for each other. I hate when rom-com books invent a silly fight, forcing lovebirds to reckoning.

I love unreliable narrators, and this book has two! A tragically disturbing story that stems from mean, errr psycho mean girl childhood trauma with turns that keep you guessing. I kept thinking I knew “whodunit” and at one point I came close but then said nah it couldn‘t be so I moved on and focused on other possible suspects. Feeney is great at crafting fantastic thrillers and I will read anything and everything she writes. Book #38 in 2024

An endearing book about how a bookstore brought people together during Covid in England, but it‘s quite sad at times. I loved the Book Pharmacy, what a fantastic idea!! Easy to read and beautifully written. I love my books and enjoyed reading about others who love reading also.

I wanted a GOOD rom-com and this hit the spot. Both Emma and Justin‘s characters were very complex. Their “relationship curse” brought them together and their humor made the sparks fly. It‘s very witty with lots of family drama, the baggage is deep and it almost overshoots the story of Justin and Emma, but it actually brings them together and helps them grow. Book #34 in 2024

I picked this up in a whim, not knowing what to expect. He pulled from all religions to make you really consider not only your own spirituality (not religion), but your place in the world and how it relates to everyone else on the planet.

I don‘t understand the hype around this book AT ALL. It had Beauty and the Beast vibes but with sub par writing. I like how witty Feyre is, although making her illiterate made no logical sense. Why try to dumb down your heroine?! The ending was predictable and the way Rhys looks at Feyre was a dead ringer for the ending in Iron Flame. Book #27 in 2024

The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller

Pickpick

The tale of Achilles, as told by Patroclus. This book explores the relationship that may have been more than just leader and henchman, as suggested in Iliad. While some scholars claim their relationship was not romantic, this book explores the possibility that it may have been and it feels like MM may have drawn some of her ideas from the Shakespeare portrayal about them being nothing but sexual. Book #25 in 2024

Allthebookclubs The rest of my review: An interesting read, but full of boring characters with no real dialogue or reason for living other than, he is a god and I am a prince and so on… (edited) 3mo

Heartbreak and Magic by Breanne Randall
What a fun book! I didn‘t expect much due to other reviews, but I‘m glad I paid them no mind. The magical details and recipes brought so much life. “River water is for moving on and sea water is for healing. Storm water is for strengthening, or if you‘re feeling ambitious, cures. Water that falls as lightning strikes will cause disaster sure as a cracked mirror or walking under a ladder.” Book #24 in 2024

I was really on the fence about reading this one. I‘m the same age as Britney, so I could relate to what was going on during her rise. It was very choppy, I felt like this was a diary written by a 12-year-old. It was hard to read, both because of the writing,and because of how traumatic her life has been. I hope she has found peace and will continue to fight for what SHE wants, she very much deserves the life SHE wants to live. Book #23 in 2024

A book club read, it was interesting and a great history lesson. I enjoyed the pictures of the women peppered throughout.

A very jacked up book that I wish I wouldn‘t have picked up. It‘s one of the most sick and twisted books I‘ve ever read and I‘m going to need a break from anything even close to dark, psychological thrillers, or anything even remotely close. Trigger warnings: kidnapping, human trafficking, sexual assault of a teen, descriptive torture, all around fucked-upness in the worst way. How can someone even write like this?! Book #19 2024

This started out very mundane with choppy writing, but I kept with it based on all the rave reviews and that a movie was made based on it. It reads as though Morgan Freeman is narrating like he did in the Lego Movie, very interesting but hard to get used to when the story starts boring. BUT I‘m glad I stuck it out because it weaves the lives of seemingly normal people together and in the end you feel part of their tapestry too. Book #6 in 2024
