I was worried that this series would falter without the war. Clearly I underestimated Bess. This was solid.

Louise I haven‘t heard of this series. Do you recommend it? Right now, I‘m about 6 books into the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear. 13mo
CGeorge Maisie Dobbs has been on my TBR pile. Would you recommend it? I definitely recommend the Bess Crawford series. Some books are stronger than others, but she‘s a fantastic character and gives an interesting perspective. 13mo

An interesting story, but I feel like I missed something early on and was out of step for most of the book.

I wasn‘t sure about this one at first, but it had some unexpected twists and turns. Reminded me of Pretty Little Liars.

I wanted to read the book before I saw the movie. I fell utterly in love with these characters and their story. While the casting of the movie was spot on I will not forgive what was done to the story.

Take a potshot at librarians and your book gets panned. I don‘t care how much I loved Blackout and All Clear.

I hadn‘t heard anything about this book and then suddenly it seemed like everyone was raving about it. For good reason. It‘s fantastically written and wholly engaging.

I was drawn to the portrayal of Eleanor Roosevelt in this. It was interesting to read her as Eleanor the love interest, rather than just Eleanor the do-gooder.

Hands down the weirdest—and I do mean weirdest—book I‘ve read in a while. Incredibly well-written though. I think I enjoyed it? I‘m still sorting that out.

Completely engrossing and at times utterly heart wrenching. Lawhon did an amazing job with this story.

I love the premise but don‘t think that it was executed well. Still my love of all things Mitford means I‘ll read the next one when it comes out.

It‘s observations like this that really make me wish I could be besties with Annie Spence. Also the shared horror of having to explain Fifty Shades to a geriatric.

How to Stop Time | Matt Haig

Pickpick

I follow Matthew Haig on Twitter and have seen so many people raving about this book that I almost didn‘t want to read it and risk not liking it. But... it was such a beautiful read. It seemed a bit rushed in the end, especially since I wanted to stay with the characters a bit longer.
