Other Birds: A Novel | Sarah Addison Allen

Pickpick

Reading a SAA book takes me to my happy place. My comfort food without the calories. This one has all my favorite features: quirky characters, a unique setting, ghosts and a heartwarming story.

I want to visit Mallow Island, see the dellawisps, eat a meal at Popcorn and revel in the new friendships. It would have been a 5 ⭐️ read, except for an unnecessarily long detour to California and the last ¼ of the book not quite up to par with the rest.

1. I love words.
2. I am interested in the different meanings of words & I started perusing the OED when in high school.
3. I enjoyed Simon Winchester‘s book about the making of the dictionary when I read it years ago.
4. I ❤️ historical fiction.
So, one could say I was predisposed to like this book. Lol

I didn‘t like it. I LOVED it. Thought provoking and beautifully written. It exceeded my expectations. This one will stay with me for awhile.

I haven‘t read a lot set solely in ancient times, but I have several on my TBR mountain. Lol.
I seem to read more ‘time spanning‘ historical fiction that starts BC and often goes up to the present day (or close).
The tagged is my favorite.

Also enjoyed Hawaii by Michener and loved both Sarum and London by Edward Rutherfurd.
I also enjoyed Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Auel

Run, Rose, Run: A Novel | James Patterson, Dolly Parton
post image
Pickpick

I admit it, I am a Dolly Parton fan! Love her music and love her as a person. Always upbeat, kind to others, a philanthropist…I picked up this book solely because she was involved in it‘s writing. I‘ve never read a James Patterson book. On it‘s own merits…it‘s a ‘so-so‘. The mystery isn‘t compelling and it feels more like a Hallmark movie. However, Dolly‘s voice and personality come off the pages and I truly enjoyed it.

I couldn‘t resist the intriguing premise: Couples from across the Austen universe come together for a house party at Donwell Abbey & evil Mr W gets bumped off! Initially I had trouble wrapping my head around all these characters in one place. Once I got past that, the story started to drag. I almost gave up 😱 Glad I didn‘t! The pace picked up in the second half and had a satisfying ending. For diehard Janeites

I read the 3rd book, Master of the Senate, ~15 years ago because I‘d always been interested in how Congress worked (thank you Mr Smith Goes to Washington) and knew Johnson was instrumental in getting a lot accomplished during his tenure. I went back and read the others because I loved Caro‘s engaging writing style and his thorough research. I both love & hate LBJ: A brilliant strong leader…A despicable controlling man! Caro holds nothing back!

Bluebird This book spans the years 1959 to 1964. LBJ goes from the height of his power as Majority leader of the Senate to holding the ineffectual and ridiculed role as JFK‘s VP to being thrust into the Presidency after the assassination. Another fascinating look at this brilliant but flawed man. 1mo

5th book in the Inspector McLean series. I enjoy this series because each book has a paranormal element that makes it unique from the other police procedurals I have read. Oswald also created such memorable characters that I was able to jump right back into the series despite it being 2 years since I read the last one. This was my least favorite to date because although the story started and ended with a bang, the mid section was slow.

Bluebird Nevertheless, i won‘t wait another 2 years to read the next one. I look forward to finding out what is next for McLean and company 1mo

I just started the next book in the Inspector McLean series.

“He kneels before me like a penitent, face to the stone wall. The bag over his head means he can‘t see the indentations in the rock face…”

I get hooked by the first sentences. The first chapters are always intriguing and a great start to a compelling mystery. This one is no exception. I‘ve no idea where it will take me. I love trying to solve Oswald‘s murder mysteries!

A favorite author! He blends my two favorite genre—historical fiction and mystery. This one is set in the 1720‘s as the South Sea Company collapses. William Spandrel, an innocent London mapmaker, becomes a pawn of the rich and powerful who are trying to protect themselves from scandal. While I did not think this one of his best works, I enjoyed this adventure story filled with suspense and intrigue.

I adore other books by the author and I‘m a fan of her descriptive writing style. She excels in setting a scene and describing artisanal work. As in Shoemaker‘s Daughter, she weaves details of a craft into her story—this time it is gem-cutting for jewelry. I love it! This book spans 3 generations of strong Italian women, and that is part of my problem, it jumps around from generation to generation and feels disjointed at times.

Bluebird I absolutely love parts of this book. I think with better editing this could have been great. As it is, i can only rate it ‘so-so‘. However, as a Trigiani fan, i‘m glad I stuck through to the end. 2mo

I‘m a devotee of Jane Austen and enjoy Georgette Heyer‘s works, so decided to give this a try despite my initial skepticism that it might be too ‘campy‘ for me. I was pleasantly surprised! This is a light, fun read with a delightful narration by Emily Tomlinson. I‘ve no doubt the audio version enhanced my enjoyment.

I went into this cold-I only knew it was a mystery about a 1960‘s film star who goes on an African Safari with friends. I was enjoying the characters, story and narration of the audiobook but soon got bogged down by the frequent changes in POV as well as time changes from the Safari to earlier days. The transitions weren‘t smooth enough for me and I got confused about who was who. As the story turned uglier and uglier, I couldn‘t wait to be done.

Bluebird Perhaps I would have done better if I read the ebook instead of audio—but i don‘t think so. Quite disappointing since I enjoy this author and the first part of the book was so good (edited) 3mo

Toni is being released from prison after 16 years locked up for the murder of her younger sister. She says she didn‘t do it. The question: who did? The book alternates from present day to the weeks leading up to the murder. I often find this technique makes a story feel disjointed, but it worked well here. And although I never liked Toni, I still found myself turning the pages to find out what happens next. A satisfying ending!

I never imagined i would read such a long series, but I just finished book #34 and have the next in my queue. I love the story arcs of Eve, Roarke, Peabody, etc. I did not find the murder mystery as interesting as previous books, but my dislike of ‘celebrity‘ may have jaded my read. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Plus—I was happy to learn Eve may finally have found a hiding place for her sweets that the Candy Thief is unable to find!

Viji I love these books! I‘ve listened to them all on audio, not sure if I would have stuck with them in print. The characters are definitely the draw for me, not the plot. 1y

Peter May is one of my favorite authors. I love his evocative writing style and the way he brings the Outer Hebrides to life. This book was no exception and I did not want to set it aside-I finished in two short days. Why the So-So rating? I didn‘t connect with his characters and never really cared about most of them. Plus, the ending was unsatisfying. I still think it a must read for his fans, but do not recommend this as an intro to the author.

Not a conventional pick, but my list wouldn‘t be complete without it. This history series blew me away. I started with book 3 about Lyndon Johnson‘s Senate years and got sucked in. Robert Caro is a meticulous historian. He spent years researching primary sources and obtaining first hand accounts for each book. He then put it together in an incredibly readable manner. A fascinating subject and a fascinating read.
