It was pretty cute and sweet. I thought the family dynamic was interesting on the male mcs side.

I really liked this. It had some magical parts in it as well but a good kind. It‘s also dual perspective about twins who are colored but one is able to pass for white, never realizing the truth until her grandmother passes.

This girl wants to dig up bodies and move them somewhere else (later revealed to be a swamp) just for being colored. This book is set in the 50‘s but I hope no one actually tried to make that happen. Girl can‘t even let them rest in peace? 😡

“For colored girls, there‘s no such thing as happily ever after”. Yikes. I know this book is set during the 50‘s, but I‘m glad some things have changed since then.

Just finished it and it was really good and sweet. It was set during the holiday season, but I could see reading this anytime during the winter season.

The first book I‘ve officially finished in 2023, and I flew right through it. It was pretty good, first one was better but overall I liked it. I wish we got to see more of how death cast worked besides calling people to inform them of their imminent death

I always get confused about the shelved part. Does that mean 751 shelved it in 2022 or 751 shelved total

I finished this a lot faster than I thought I would. It was pretty good but I wish the last book was out because this book ends in a cliffhanger.

Just finished this and it was kinda meh. The story was interesting and kinda fitting for this time of year. We even get a small romance for Stella at the end, although I don‘t feel like it made much sense to me tbh.

Does it ever mention how Ellie got pregnant with poppy in the first place ?

5feet.of.fury I remember Noelle drugged her and …I gues turkey basted her… I don‘t think it went into specifics… with sperm she got off the internet. 4mo
BookishGirl06 @5feet.of.fury I just finished it and that just seems so weird to me. What did she knock her out again and insert sperm into her privates or something? I don‘t think she could sneak it into her food cause I don‘t think that‘s how it works 4mo

90ish pages in and I already have a theory. Don‘t spoil me if I‘m right or not please, but I‘m wondering if Poppy and Ellie are related somehow. Obviously not the same person but 🤔

BookishGirl06 I wonder if maybe Ellie is poppy‘s biological mother. Again don‘t tell me if I‘m right or not 4mo

It was pretty good. I thought the alternating chapters between mother and daughter was a good way to tell the story. I liked the the daughter for the first half of the book.

I might not be a mom myself but I feel like this is a pretty naive way to think and the 16 year old girl is showing her age lol. A baby isn‘t going to wait patiently to get his poopy diaper changed

Wasn‘t really a huge fan of this one as much as her other works. The story is pretty atmospheric and doesn‘t drag, but it just lacks something for me.

All the books I‘m unhauling tommorow. 1 is for the ones I‘ve read. 2 is for the ones I‘m no longer interested in. 3 is for ones I‘ve DNFed and 4 is for ones I‘ve decided to either borrow or do ebook/audiobook copies just to save one shelf space.
