The Gifted School | Bruce Holsinger

Mehso-so

I was so excited to read this book. Multiple families, drama, suburban school setting, I‘m in. But you don‘t really end up liking any of the characters. They‘re all evil and weird in their own ways. But it held my interest enough for me to finish it hence the so-so rating. Thanks #botm for another mediocre pick.

This book needs an index of characters. I keep getting so confused. And he refers to some of the kids as letters like Z and Q. Dude I‘m lost.

I cannot day enough wonderful things about this book. I absolutely loved it. It does switch around POVs but that‘s not off putting. Such a great story. And the girl lead is not some push over powder puff. ❤️❤️❤️

marleed I loved it too. I think it could be adapted to screen quite successfully. 1mo

Summer of '69 | Elin Hilderbrand
post image
Bailedbailed

I could not get into this book at all. Not even 75 pages in. I just don‘t care. I typically enjoy all her books. Not today. And not in 69.

marleed I liked it okay but I think as historical fiction this was a fail. I think she needed to focus on one family being significantly impacted by one maybe two events of that historical summer. But retrofitting one fam into every event made the story hokey. 1mo

One of Us Is Lying | Karen M. Mcmanus

Started off strong, five students walk into detention and only four walk out alive. The brain, the beauty, the criminal, and the outcast almost like the Breakfast Club with murder...and less witty. But still interesting with a hint of YA romance.

I was finally able to put this rich family to rest. I enjoyed reading about the different families throughout the summer. #beachreads

The best book I‘ve read in a while. Different perspectives done right. Keeps you interested in all the story lines not just the hero.

Another just ok library find. Lipman tried so hard to pick up many topics but just couldn‘t thread them together. At then end I guess she was like okay almost 300 pages...that‘s enough for a book.

“An ordinary town transformed by a mysterious illness that triggers perpetual sleep.” This book is amazing, i was instantly transported to this town. I couldn‘t put it down over the weekend. It‘s not about the how or why of the virus so that maybe aggravating to some people. It‘s more about the characters and what they are going through as the town goes under. 📚 📖

BarbaraBB I had it stacked already but your review makes me want to read it even more! 5mo

I have mixed feelings about this book. I was drawn in and then it drags. I questioned not finishing this book multiple times, until it finally picks up and you start caring about the story again. I‘ll be reading more from this author just not for a long while...500 pages is enough.
