11/22/63: A Novel | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️: This doesn‘t read like your standard King novel at all. For me that‘s what made this one so readable. Pick this one up! #Tome #TimeTravel #AlternateHistory

keithmalek I felt like he got lazy at the end and wanted to wrap it up too quickly. 3mo
BritanyA @keithmalek yes, I did wonder how he was going to wrap it up with less than 200 PGS to go. I still liked it. Did you? 3mo
keithmalek @BritanyA I was loving it...until then. The rapid ending ruined it for me. 3mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️: I‘m a die hard Bachelor Nation fan! This book was surprisingly nothing to write home about. Most of the secrets she‘s spills are already out there. She also comes off a tad bit of a bitter Betty.

The Virgin Suicides | Jeffrey Eugenides

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was an odd book. It was an adorable picador modern classic edition which was tiny and for in the palm of my hand. The story of the Lisbon sisters was strange and like looking into a thick coke bottle. Still not sure what to make of it.

Twocougs It‘s certainly a different read. Felt so odd when I finished it. 4mo
BritanyA @Twocougs yes! Hard to describe how I felt about it. 4mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2: Thus was a delightful snack! I loved the snark and relationship between Alexa & Drew. Light enough for a summer read yet enough meat to keep me interested.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️: This was pretty good. Complicated familial relationships and a suicide that could be a murder? Sign me up!!

Scorpioseah I left last 50 pages of the book. My first book from this author. 5mo

Scorpioseah I gave a 4-star too, will be finding time for her other novels too. Just started listening to the bride test by Helen Hoang from the library. 5mo
BritanyA @Scorpioseah nice!! Thanks for coming back to let me know. Did you guess the ending? 5mo

⭐️⭐️: I love WWII historical fiction so this should‘ve been a slam dunk. I didn‘t like this one, it slogged along and created characters that I struggled to connect with.

Mrs. Everything | Jennifer Weiner

Mehso-so

⭐️⭐️⭐️: meh— was a bit bored with the middle and damn, could the author throw any more plot devices at this novel?

Hazel0303 I agree with what you said here! I did I give it a higher rating because the end helped the bad-ish taste in my mouth that I had through most of it - but YES. I totally agree with you. Everything, but the kitchen sink was in it. Most of the time it was unsettling to read, but after the middle section it turned around for me enough. 6mo
BritanyA @Hazel0303 YES!!! It would‘ve been even lower had it not engaged me towards the end. 5mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2: I‘m in the minority on this one but didn‘t love it as much as I had hoped. Still love me some Jane Harper though. ☀️☄️🔥🏜

JennyM I‘m with you! This was my least fave of hers. Not sure why, but I was kinda bored & guessed the ending a mile off. 7mo
JoScho I agree. It wasn‘t as strong for me as the Aaron Falk series. 7mo
BritanyA @JennyM Yes, didn‘t quite guess the ending but it wasn‘t as compelling as the Dry. Have you read Force of Nature yet? 7mo
BritanyA @JoScho 😀 need to pick up the second one in that series. 7mo

Beneath a Scarlet Sky | Mark T. Sullivan

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️: Based on a true story of Pino Lella- an Italian young man who rescued Refugees out during the height of WW2 and drives around the top general under Hitler. I don‘t believe everything as the author write this as historical fiction, so have to just go with it for what it is.
