Eden: A Novel | Jeanne McWilliams Blasberg
post image
Pickpick

Eden is a beautifully written debut novel that centers around a family's summer vacation home throughout the generations and all the family drama that goes with it. At first it was hard for me to keep all the family members straight, but thankfully the author included a family tree at the beginning of the book. I highly recommend this one! 4.5/5⭐

"And she'd realized there was something worse than being ignored; there was being a target."

This was just a so-so read for me. I finished it just over a week ago and I feel like I've already forgotten about it.

Could you imagine walking away from modern life and living alone in the woods? And I'm not talking about living in a cabin with the comforts of a roof and walls, but in a makeshift campsite built off of stolen items. Well, Christopher Knight did just that. For 27 YEARS.

For it being a short read, I recommend it, but I do wish the author could have gone deeper into the background story of the Knight family to give the reader a complete picture.

Mommamanzi I just started to read it and so excited to see so many positive reviews on it! 2y

I always get excited for the last day of the month because #bookofthemonthclub releases the next month's picks. And of course I had to pick right away. What is everyone selecting this month? I went with Final Girls and added American War (a previous month's pick that I passed on and regreted).

bridgetann I picked The Windfall, The Child, and Final Girls. I really had a hard time between Final Girls and Goodby Vitamin. 2y
Cassidys.Bookshelf @Reviewsbylola All five? Wow, I'm jealous! Happy reading 😊 2y
Cassidys.Bookshelf @bridgetann I was debating about The Child, but decided to just put that one on a library hold instead. 2y
bridgetann @Cassidys.Bookshelf I put Goodbye Vitamin on hold. I have her first novel, nut I have not read it yet. 2y

"Everyone has a thousand wishes before a tragedy, but just one afterward."

This is a book that I will never be able to forget. I can forsee my mind wandering off thinking about this gut-wrenching tale for weeks and months to come. Read it.

[DELETED] 1270140328 I was debating it, but now I feel like I need to read it! 2y
Cassidys.Bookshelf @heytheredeonna I highly recommend it! Comparable to the show Friday Night Lights, but with small town hockey instead and more depth. 2y

Little Black Lies takes place on Falkland Islands and it is about a mother's worst fear - losing her children. In a careless accident Catrin's best friend Rachel is to blame for the death of her two boys. 3 years later and 3 missing boys later, you follow Catrin, Callum and Rachel's story lines during the disappearance of the latest missing boy. Full of twists and secrets, a good read for fans of thrillers/mysteries.

It Ends With Us | Colleen Hoover

I wasn't really sure what I was getting myself into with this book when I started it or really even halfway through, but I'm so glad I read it. It deals with tough life situations that will pull at your heartstrings and make you ache for the characters.

If you love historical fiction and can take the time to really slowly immerse yourself in the story you will find this book truly magical. It is slow at times and for me, lacked an extensive plot, but you cannot argue with the depth of writing and dedication to the time.
