This was a good thriller, but it was also a bit predictable.

What a fun book! This non-fiction book describes the author‘s seven month trip around the world via a series of trains. She describes her observations of the cultures she visits and her adventures along the way. The majority of the book covers her time in Asia but she also went through Europe, Canada and the US. Great choice for anyone interested in travel, trains and/or international cultures.

So I‘m a bit obsessed with national parks...and therefore I loved this book! It gives a great behind-the-scenes perspective on the life of a park ranger and the wildlife in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Anyone who enjoys the outdoors or who appreciates wildlife will find a kindred spirit in this author. 💚

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society | Annie Barrows, Mary Ann Shaffer

What a surprise, the book is better than the movie! 🙂 I watched the Netflix version (which is also good) and then read the book. The book is written entirely in the format of letters between two people (multiple combinations of different people), which I really liked. It also has a significant character that the movie didn‘t have. The story is endearing and sweet and totally makes me want to visit Guernsey. Fantastic historical fiction.

What a sweet book! It tells the true story of a journalist who interviews a series of people all 100 or older. Every chapter is another interview with another centenarian. It‘s a great reminder of the importance of relationships and it will make you want to hug a senior citizen. Loved it!

This book is a memoir by Betty Reid Soskin, the oldest living National Park Service Park ranger based at the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Homefront National Historical Park in California. She became an interpretive park ranger in her 80‘s. Isn‘t this attitude just the best? Fascinating read about a fascinating woman.

LOVED this book!! I wasn‘t sure about it at first...slow start...but then it reached the point where I couldn‘t put it down because I HAD to know what happened. I cried, I gasped, my mind was blown. I‘ve been done with the book for three days now and I‘m still processing it. Definitely worth all the buzz.

I‘ve always enjoyed Agatha Christie books, and this had a very similar feel but a very different setting. This book is set in Calcutta, India immediately following WWI which was part of the appeal for me...I‘ve read very few books set in India. The twists and turns of the mystery were artfully written. The issue of racism and colonial life was handled well. There‘s a reason why this has won awards for mystery writing. Definitely recommend! 👍🏻

Loved this book! It drew me in right away; I found it difficult to put down until I reached the end. It‘s got twists and turns, fascinating characters and just the right amount of suspense. Excited to read some of Lisa Jewell‘s other books now!

The Beautiful Strangers | Camille Di Maio

I started reading this book and then realized that its setting was Coronado Island in San Diego...same location I was headed to for spring break vacation! ❤️😮 I thoroughly enjoyed the dual story line of the beautiful strangers and was drawn in right away, but it was even better to then see Hotel Del Coronado in person! Definitely recommend a trip to Coronado while you‘re reading this one 😉

What a fun book! This was a great light read that drew me in right away and became a book I couldn‘t put down. I found it in a used book store in Breckenridge Colorado, recommended by the owner when I asked for a book by a Colorado author. Love finding a gem like this! ❤️ 📚

I loved this book! ❤️ It‘s a fast read that‘s both funny and poignant with characters that are easy to pull for. The author makes an important statement about life on an Indian reservation without seeming preachy or political. There‘s a reason why this book won so many awards. It‘s great!

My favorite memoirs are the ones that leave me appreciating and liking the author more at the end of the book...but that actually didn‘t happen for me with this book. It was a good light read that took me back in time though. And he did have a few interesting stories. So there‘s that...

Just finished reading Tolstoy...this is the perfect follow-up to lighten the mood a bit! Dick Van Dyke had me laughing right off the bat! 😂

Tolstoy has such a beautiful way with words. This book is long and the story has many twists and turns, but it‘s this captivating use of language that keeps me in love with it all. Indeed a classic.
