Mad Honey | Jodi Picoult, Jennifer Finney Boylan
post image
Pickpick

This was a stirring emotional book of hurt and hopelessness but also love, and resilience. What I love about J.P books is that you are pulled in there is always something unexpected and she uses wonderful symbolism. I think Boylan also added so much. This story makes you think, gives you not only perspective on topics that are important and wraps it all in a suspenseful intriguing story

Fahrenheit 451 | Ray Bradbury
post image
Pickpick

My plan for my reading this year was to read more diverse and thought provoking books ,this book was very much that.This is speculative fiction,Bradbury tells a tale of what the future would look like without books,how as a society we let it happen it shows us how books might not give us all the answers but makes us ask the questions,they challenge you and make you think.#joyousjanuary

This took me a long time to read between getting Covid and the holidays and some other stuff took me forever! But I enjoyed it, it was a little long but I really like the characters so spending time with them and they‘re adventures was worth it,and the story is just fun looking forward to the next one!

This was just ok for me what I did enjoy was the atmosphere and the short chapters ,but the characters even the main character Elin just were lack luster and the plot tried to be clever and surprising but in the end it didn‘t work for me.

The Change: A Novel | Kirsten Miller

This was a book of magic mixed with feminism, three woman each with different gifts come together to solve disturbing disappearances of young girls in a beach town, definitely some trigger warnings for violence, but overall a good book
I had planned different books for #outstandingoctober but this was a audio so it worked , two books read !

Hello Beautiful | Ann Napolitano
post image
Mehso-so

Probably a unpopular opinion but this story fell flat for me, four sisters close together in so many ways and yet they get pulled apart in a very family drama way. This starts in 70/80 moves to early 2000 and has nods to Little Woman,but something was off with the feel of the story I can‘t put my finger on

This was a wonderful historical fiction, set in the 1853 on the Oregon trail Naomi a recent young widow travels with her family to California to start a new life. John who is part Pawnee and part white called a two foot is a mule handler and decides to take this trip and the adventure begins. If anyone like 1883 the prequel to Yellowstone you would like this book. Also some of the characters are based on true people.I will read this author again

AnnR Thanks for posting. That's a thoughtful review. I have this one sitting on my kindle. I think I need to refocus on my tbr in 2024, but the Litsy buddy reads are always so tempting! 5mo

Set in Vermont this is a creepy story with dual time lines from early 1900 to current time, a mystery that unravels a story about a woman and a diary that alters lives in the past and present. It was just ok for me

This was an interesting,thought provoking book and I really enjoyed the writing and the creativity. I was invested in all the characters and their stories ❤️I also liked how the author put a spin on how politics played a big role in this story and I felt like there were messages of how politics can create division under times of uncertainty

Fourth Wing | Rebecca Yarros

Pickpick

Fun fantasy different and creative loved the way the author arranged the story.Violet the main character tells you the history and the world building through her voice she recited these facts when she‘s nervous,she has always thought she would be a scribe but trains to be a rider.loved that it was not 1000 pages and there wasn‘t a lot of baseless dialog to fill pages it did read a little more YA then adult but doesn‘t take away from the story ❤️

5feet.of.fury I like the way Violet told the history too. I thought that was neat, instead of the author info dumping 9mo

I have been part reading slump part busy.
I have read Gideon before but the audio is much better, and I wasn‘t going to continue the Nightborn series,and here I am on chapter 14 ,I do like this story , I just am not a fan of the whole vampire thing 🤷🏼‍♀️
26 chapters read for 20in4 hopefully by the end of the day I will get a few more done

Ruthiella The audio by Moira Quirk of all the 9th house books is awesome, I agree. Currently I‘m listening to and reading 10mo
Areader2 @Ruthiella Muir‘s writing is so descriptive I just didn‘t get everything out of the book reading it,so you read Harrow the ninth too ? And you liked it?, I will definitely continue with the audio of this series 10mo
Ruthiella @Areader2 Yes, I‘ve read the first two books. Love the details and the confusion! The books come together by the end, but the first half is always a bit of a mystery. 10mo
