One of my favorite reads so far this year. Beautiful, heart breaking, and honest portrayal of complicated and flawed family relationships. Very much a 5 star read for me!
My favorite local bookstore! I‘m so in love with this book wall!
Like it‘s West Texas setting, this is a gritty debut novel of survival, courage and how women support each other. The descriptions of Odessa are completely vivid and like another character in the book. The audiobook narration was really good and kept me engaged enough that I finished it quickly.
Favorite books of 2020 stack ... missing The Water Dancer and The Dutch House.
This was a good one to listen to while cleaning. Some parts I probably would have connected with better if I was younger (20s-30s) but overall it made me pause and consider my relationship with spending.
About half way through and it is already one of my top three reads this year!
Current audio book ... already nervous because I know it‘s going to get really, really bad for the main character. The Underground Railroad was one of the most impactful books I read this year and feel like this is going to be hard to shake too.
Best fiction book list for 2020 from I love libraries...what were your favorites? I‘ve only read three, with Transcendent Kingdom as my fav...A Burning is on my TBR pile.
Picked this one up after loving The Vanishing Half (and being drawn in by the cover!) I didn‘t read any reviews so I guess I assumed something totally different from the title. I kept thinking this just wasn‘t the book I wanted. Putting that aside, I did find the story and characters interesting and appreciated the complexity and reality of the relationships.
Uncomfortable, raw and fascinating- I could not put this one down. Some sentences left me breathless and I had to reread them several times because they were just that good.
