A lovely memoir on a very modern topic -- commercial DNA 🧬 test results reveal a difference in family history than what was previously believed. The author, Dani Shapiro, took the test on a whim and the results have changed her life. She writes about the experience beautifully in her memoir. Also, the #audiobook was nicely done from #Libby. #readandlisten

Cinfhen Pretty photo!!! And I loved this memoir 22h

😢😭 oh my goodness. I thought this was beautiful, heartbreaking, inspirational, bittersweet, and so informative. Julie Yip-Williams was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer in her late 30s as a wife and mother with two very young girls. This is her memoir as put together from blog posts she authored while living with the disease. I cried and I am inspired. I see the world, my life, through a whole different perspective. #tearjerker

Blaire Interviews I heard with her were always inspiring. Very much want to read this. 1d

Look at my tiny baby Concord grapes! 🍇 I'm so into this book and would love to do nothing but read. Family life with my two young boys is always what comes first. If you're a #truecrime reader like me I think you'll enjoy this one. There's a series on #Netflix called Mindhunter based on the book with the same title by these authors.

Clare-Dragonfly I thought I had already stacked this. I love his books. 5d

A Swedish teenager is on trial for mass murder of her classmates. However, this book is much more than this explanation. An examination of wealth and privilege, "outsiders", love and obsession, and so much more about the human condition. Some of the text was a bit clunky, in the way that translated works sometimes are. Altogether, this was an excellent crime novel, from a different perspective. Also, a #Netflix series I plan to watch soon.

Thunderstorms ⛈ allowed me to slip in a few pages of this one. Also, listening to the #audiobook while I stain the kitchen floor. Quite a task, but a book certainly helps pass the time! I've read less that flattering reviews of this one, but I'm enjoying it. I like the Swedish-ness of it and intrigued about where it's headed.

You go, Granny Gatewood! What an inspirational tale! Emma Gatewood, from Gallipolis, OH (one county over from me), walked the Appalachian Trail 3 times in its entirety. The first 2 times were straight through. She did it with very little, no tent or big pack just a small bag. So much grit! So much determination. I am glad I read this about a regional heroine. She is world renowned & I feel proud that she's from our little corner of Ohio. #bookclub

So, after my last (very addictive) read, I'm ready for something similar. I want a super fast plot, something that keeps you turning pages. I'm in the mood for one of those books that makes you drop everything else for it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I read and was appalled by/adored YOU. Heard about this one and thought I would pass since most of the reviews warned against it. Then watched the Netflix series of YOU and my interest was renewed. Put Hidden Bodies #audiobook on hold and when it came in, almost returned it. Bit the bullet and began reading it. SO GLAD I DID!! I thought this was equal to YOU in all of the horror/insanity. Joe was the same crazy person I know and love/hate.

Chelsea.Poole P.s. -- recently heard the Kepnes is writing two more books in this series! I'm on board! 😳🤭 2w

For some YOU lovers, this one didn't live up to the excellence of the first time meeting Joe. I'm not far into it, but I have to say, I'm hooked! I'm hoping it keeps me entertained all the way through. I also just heard that Kepnes is writing two more books in this series!

I'm going to admit it -- I struggled. It started out slow for me, gained momentum and I was super into it, and then it plopped me back down as we plodded through tangents. I got lost somewhere in Zadie's brilliance. Really wanted to adore it as much as I should, but felt like I wanted it to end wayyy sooner than it did. I just don't know if I'm smart enough to fully "get it". Some parts the humor and brilliance came through for me, so pick it is.

Chelsea.Poole #audiobook was nicely done from #Libby. Also found the comparisons to John Irving to be appropriate at times. 3w

She's just as fabulous as I remember, and having been pregnant not long ago myself, I related to this one more than any of her others. She's the best! Can't wait to read more about "Pal's" early life and her adventures in parenting.

At first, I was skeptical. And then I started really getting into this. I liked the pacing and felt some major Ready Player One vibes with all the pop culture references. Also, the look at social media and how we use it to portray the "us" we want others to see is very timely. Listened to the #audiobook on #Libby. ? ?

I listened to the #audiobook of this #shortstory collection. There were seriously amazing scenes and writing throughout. I am not a huge short story fan, but I like the author and heard great things; it didn't disappoint. I also many of the stories relatable as the mothers featured in the stories often had two young sons, as I do. Also, Florida was such an intense setting in these stories, obvs! 🐊

Seriously loved this one. So thought provoking, and many talking points. We humans have so much to get right...What really gets me is how little we care for our Earth. This just makes me realize how greed for power and money drive everything and have corrupted so much. It's definitely not all doom and gloom; there are some hopeful bits.

Ugh. I hate when the writing is beautiful but the story itself is so lacking. I tried to keep an open mind, but I just did not enjoy this one, apart from the sparkling sentences sprinkled throughout.

Some things about this were just too implausible, but it did make me want to keep reading. I'm torn, I guess I'll say it was so-so. Therapist relationships, marital issues, and a bit of a mystery thrown in, but nothing really worked that well for me. It also felt a little long. But, the #audiobook was nicely done and I enjoyed some parts.

In theory I should have adored this book. It is "sprawling", historical fiction, "quirky", generational. All of my favorite descriptors of a novel. Didn't work out for me, though. ? I should have cared about the characters way more than I did. Something was missing for me, sadly. I did really enjoy the beginning, but it gradually went downhill until I almost regret reading it. ? #audiobook #libby

Our #bookclub loved it! I was pleasantly surprised because I feared that many would find it too challenging with the dialect. This is one of those books that I'll never do justice to in a small review space like this one. It simply is an American classic. One of self discovery, love, and struggle. 🌳

lynneamch We just read this for bookclub, too, and had such a great discussion. You are so right! Also, found out more about the author. What an amazing woman so far ahead of her time and so underappreciated then. 3w
Chelsea.Poole @lynneamch I agree, she was ahead of her time! I just happened to watch the film adaptation yesterday and it was fabulous. If you haven't seen it, I recommend it. It retained the feel of the book; many book to movie adaptations don't, in my mind, but this one did! 3w

This turned out to be about errors in ways of investigating fires, innocent people behind bars, the California innocent project, and Joanna Parks...the woman accused of purposely starting a fire which killed her 3 young children. It was heartbreaking. i was expecting more of a #truecrime feel with investigations and such, but I enjoyed it all the same. It's an important look into our justice system as well.

I forgot to post about this one when I started it a couple days ago on #Libby. I'm such a #truecrime addict, and I read an article that mentioned this title as a 2019 true crime, but I'm not so sure I would label this one as such. It is interesting, but not exactly what I was expecting. Hope to finish today so I can move on to my plethora of arrived #audiobook holds! 😁
