This was a wonderful historical fiction written by two authors Stephanie Dray&,Laura Kamoie. It is told by Eliza Hamilton,starting from the beginning of the revolution her trials and tribulations not only with her husband but with the politics.Hamilton was a passionate believer in the foundation of this country and she stood by him in life and after his death. Wonderful descriptions,fact and fiction interwoven, seamless story telling.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Great garden, and I love this series and a few others for just that reason. We deserve some great fun. Side note: If you like this series, there is a spin off short story that happens next called Alpha and Omega, where Bran sends someone to investigate that odd pack Mercy heard about. I enjoyed that one too. 2w

I have read my fair share of YA novels, and most I have enjoyed, and some I didn‘t and unfortunately I really didn‘t enjoy this one. I did appreciate the setting,African historical and spiritual culture.The young characters were brave and the adventures are unique. I understand what the writer was trying to accomplish ,but to me there was just too much violence for a YA story.🤷🏼‍♀️

Did some planting this weekend 🌸🌺🌼
This was a story of a small town in Canada that revolves around one family but there are other key characters.It is a story of secrets that shaped lives in many different ways, but family is what binds them together. Part mystery, part drama I would recommend it.

”Through his grief I had begun to understand that loss and death were not twins. With time, loss could be understood; however torturous the path through it, it would soften. But death—it was inexplicable. That there was not even a second between life and death was what I could not comprehend. Trevor alive, then dead. Forever.”

Starting this today, I am halfway through Children of Blood and Bone, but not feeling it I can‘t put my finger on why. I think it‘s a good story, I like the characters for the most part,but there‘s a little more violence for a YA fantasy then I care for 🤷🏼‍♀️

“Its all a process,steps along a path. Becoming requires equal parts patience and rigor. Becoming is never giving up on the idea that there‘s more growing to be done”
I feel that I am better for having read this book.To see how every opportunity was always taken for the greater good of the people
And what progress had been made in so many ways.
I have hope that someday we will see that again.

I really thought I was going to be over the top for this story,but I wasn‘t.I couldn‘t really wrap my head around the different connections to why or if the son assassinated a senator,It was wordy to the point of skimming. I did feel the emotions of the father, and the rollercoaster ride he lived,but all in all it just was ok🤷🏼‍♀️

I read the first two books in the Witcher series, I loved the fantasy but didn‘t really get some it.So I finished the The last Wish which is a book of stories that definitely gives you an understanding of the Witcher,the world and some of the politics.I definitely will read Sword of Destiny and then go back and pick up the third book in the series having a better understanding of the characters,politics and the world 🗡⚔️

The plot was about the corrupt Italian movie industry. The characters especially the main character Oscar was despicable, and crude the others flawed,and unlikeable.With excessive long descriptions and somewhat predictable ending. I did enjoy how he described Rome and different parts of Italy and the all the descriptions of food !

This is a partial review of this book it‘s a chunkster. Just about halfway and really enjoying it so far.The start of the book I went back and forth with the map to understand the unfolding story of the people and places,and their beliefs,but once I grasped that,it took off.Ead and Tane are the two main narratives but there are others that branch from them.I love that the story is woven with mostly strong female influences and themes.❄️

Sat with this old man all day and finished
Where The Crawdads Sing.
This was a story of survival and loneliness,it‘s also a story of strength and resilience, and how nature wasn‘t vs nurture, but how nature was nurture for Kya. She became who she was because of nature,and how it shaped her life.The descriptions where beautiful and there where some surprises really enjoy it.

This book shows a futuristic United States, where your only allowed one child where food and water is scarce and the government is oppressive.It‘s a young adult science fiction,that is fast paced. I would definitely read the sequel.

"For thousands of years,societies have built walls to keep their adversaries out or their populations in.
But history tells us they all eventually fall. Stone,brick,wood,concrete,barbed wire,and tamped earth cannot keep a sharp mind and desperate determination at bay forever."

I didn‘t read the book, but I just watched the movie,what a powerful story. To me it was about a woman who wanted to write,but this was the 50/60s when like ever other industry woman were not taken seriously,and she did fall in love.I don‘t want to give the story away,but I think Glenn Close well deserves all the accolades she is getting for this movie.

John Irving has always been one of my favorites but there‘s so many great authors it‘s hard to pick just one.
