An American Marriage | Tayari Jones

Pickpick

The characters in this book were so real. I didn‘t like their personalities a whole lot per say, but they were written well. The author does a great job staying neutral between the conflict of the characters and the story was well written. Extremely thought provoking & a story that needed telling. Great book club choice. #lmpbc #litsybookclubs

Pickpick

Asides from the atrocious grammar mistakes (like did you even reread the book once you finished Yormark?!), this was actually a great story! Being only 220 pages, it was a quick, but very action filled novel. About a man who‘s wife is abducted, & he is hell bent on finding her. But, what he isn‘t prepared for is an alternate world that Mirrors ours, which is systematically kidnapping ppl #lmpbc

Coco @jillannjohn I found it!! Woot woot! Can‘t promise I‘ll make it to the post office today, but I‘ll try to get it out tomorrow 😉! 1y
jillannjohn Sounds great! 1y

It‘s over 😭. Oh but it was beautiful!! Even the times where the author ripped my heart out only to return it in parts and greatly bruised. This is the end of The Rebel of the Sands trilogy & it was epically done. Highly recommend the series. Often described as Arabian nights + Wild West. Action packed, love, in depth secondary characters, magic, heartbreak, mystery, surprise, and more. If you haven‘t read this series, go do it ❤️

TheBookishBarista I need to finish this series 😱 first book was amazing! I have the second but have yet to read it. Definitely need to get the third and binge it haha! 1y

Bailedbailed

So I have such a hard time bailing on books!! I never want to give up hope....BUT I have about 15 other awesome books on my bookshelf, so after 4 chapters and 60 pages in... this book just isn‘t for me. Too #chicklit for my personal tastes. I need more drama and adventure 🙃. But if you do like books about friendship and those type of storylines this one was highly quotable!

C.Perone It‘s always hard to bail 😕 1y
Becker It just doesn‘t make sense to force yourself through a book you‘re not enjoying. There are so many choices out there. Hope the next book is a great one. 1y
Coco @Becker I agree! And I tell my hubby this all the time haha but I have to remind myself to do the same 😝. The next book is amazing so far!!!!! ❤️❤️ 1y
Purrfectpages I agree with you here. I finished the book, but was largely unimpressed. 1y

Today marks the 1year anniversary of our adoption day! & just had to share that with all my littens 💕. Reading has been an integral part of mine and Ts bonding since the day he moved in. We truly connect any time we read together. We are always reading 2books, one he reads to me & another I read to him. I‘m so thankful for his love for stories and for the tool books play in our connection to one another ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Started this audiobook this morning on my drive, but thinking about switching to the print version. The narrator‘s voice/reading style just isn‘t clicking with me or the story for some reason. Have u ever quit an audio bc of the narrator?

Mollyanna Absolutely. To me the narrator makes or breaks an audio. I‘ve had print books that I thought were DNF and switched to audio where the narrator brought everything to life. 2y
Laylafinn I enjoyed reading this book on my kindle 2y
Christine11 Totally - I‘m listening to The Immortalists at the moment and the narrator is driving me crazy 😝 she puts on a weird super deep voice for the male characters and it just sounds silly ! 2y

bookwrm526 I haven‘t quit because of a narrator, but I have skipped buying a few on audio after I listened to the preview! 2y
Chrissyreadit Yes- a good narrator makes a huge difference. I love that there are choices for many of the classics. 2y
Kaye I‘ve listened to audiobooks for about 3 years now. The narrator can honestly make or break a good book. There are some that the narrator literally ruins ,and others that bring a good story to life and make it fantastic. 2y
xicanti Just last week, I bailed on a pretty short audio because the author-narrator's performance didn't work for me AT ALL. Sometimes, that's the way it's gotta be. 2y
Coco Ah so glad to know I‘m not the only one! I‘m definitely still interested in the book. Just bailing on the format. I‘ve read /listened to lots of audiobooks but this is my first narrator bail! 2y
KerriGreenwell What did you think of All the Missing Girls? 2y
Coco @KerriGreenwell I quit this audio bc I didn‘t like the narrator 😕. I‘m waiting on the hard copy of this book to come in from the library so I can enjoy it that way!!! 2y
sloanghost I somehow ploughed through ALL of ASOIAF despite horrible narration from Dotrice, but in fairness I was alone in a tiny concrete room with only geckos for company, for hours, so I was pretty desperate 1y
Shaila Almost! But I did end up finishing. I can't remember the title now, but it was a "stranded on a tropical island" romance. Her narration was so...CHIPPER! It was like she had a smile on her face the whole time! It was supremely annoying! ? 1y

Mehso-so

I liked the premise of this world & the characters are fun. But I felt like the authors foreshadowing was a bit over kill & I guessed all the plot twists early on. In fact I knew the end of the book cliffhanger almost halfway through 😬👎. I may try one more book in the series, but if it‘s just as predictable I‘ll prolly move on to other series. Any Lunar Chronicles fans out there with feedback? #bookreview #ya #lunarchronicles #audiobook

melyndarae I've had this book for awhile but haven't gotten around to reading it. Bummed to hear it's so so. I'm pretty good at guessing endings of movies and books and such so overdone foreshadowing is definitely no good. 2y
GypsyKat They get better as they go along. 2y
Coco @GypsyKat that‘s what I‘ve been seeing on ppls posts! Good to know! I really like the world and character so don‘t want to give up on them, but I like surprises in the plot 😆 2y
See All 20 Comments
Coco @melyndarae Me too and I really like to be surprised so I‘m usually bummed if I guess things way before they tell me! Lol I really liked the storyline and world tho so I‘m gonna give Book 2 one more chance! 2y
GypsyKat @Coco I mean, there‘s not a lot of plot twists, but I love fairytale retellings and the dynamic she builds between the different characters as the books go on are fun. If you‘re looking for a YA fantasy series that‘ll keep you on your toes a bit more, read the Throne of Glass series. The first book was a little slow, but after that they really pick up. The last book comes out later this year. 2y
[DELETED] 206653737 I enjoyed this book enough but Scarlet, which is next, is what really hooked me in this series and the rest were good. 2y
Cats-and-Tea For what it‘s worth, I absolutely hated this book, and swore off this series forever, but ended up reading Scarlet anyway and fell in love. I‘d give it one more try, but maybe take some time to cool off from this one first. If you don‘t like Scarlet then I‘d give up 2y
tonyahoswalt On one hand, I feel like some of the plot twists are meant to be obvious because it's a retelling of Cinderella so you know the basis of the story. But I still found it interesting and fun. I think the others may be right about it getting better with Scarlett though. 2y
croberts51 I just finished and other than the foreshadowing, I liked it. There was still enough of the story and the characters that I liked to keep going. 2y
vividandromeda Oh I absolutely adore the whole series, including Cinder! I'm not really sure if the foreshadowing was thaaaat bad, but I haven't read that book in a long time so I could be wrong 2y
Coco @GypsyKat thanks!! That series has been on my TBR shelf! I‘ll bump it up on my reading list!! 2y
Coco @bookish22 thanks for ur feedback! I‘m still excited to try Scarlet! 2y
Coco @Cats-and-Tea oh wow that is awesome to know!!! You get my struggle haha!!! Great advice and I think I‘ll read a few others while I wait on my library hold for Scarlet to come in! 2y
Coco @tonyahoswalt thanks for the input! 2y
Coco @croberts51 same!!! I adored all the characters!!! 2y
Coco @vividandromeda I‘m not giving up on the series yet, definitely going to read Scarlet bc I really loved the characters & interested to see what the author does with the world building she put into cinder. I think my big issue was that I guessed that Cinder was the missing lunar princess really early on & was frustrated that it was the big ending of book one. I wanted it revealed so much sooner haha! 2y
GypsyKat @Coco I love that series. But I can also highly recommend the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy. Sooooo good!!! 2y
Coco Yay thanks @GypsyKat !!!! I hadn‘t heard of that one!! ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
GypsyKat @Coco It‘s really great! I even got my hubs to read it, he‘s on the second book right now. 2y

Just finished this read with my 9 yo kiddo. He wasn‘t a huge fan, but I think it was mostly bc the storyline was a bit dense for his attention span prior to bedtime lol! & altering perspectives confused him a little. However it‘s a definite pick for me! The writing felt poetic (especially as a #readaloud), and I enjoyed the magical world! #raisingreaders #fantasy #litsyreview #prettycovers

Jessbell7164 I picked up memoirs of a geisha at our local goodwill. Read it years ago and it still has stuck with me. Just beautiful. Hubby is listening to mortal engines on hoopla and is loving it. I‘ve got to finish it before the movie comes out! 😬😳 2y
Coco @Jessbell7164 that‘s awesome! I love finding such good books for cheap prices! I only paid $1 for each of these 😍. I didn‘t realize a movie was in the making of that one!! I better move it up on my read list too lo!! 2y

Finished this short prequel around the Three Dark Crown series. I loved how it cleared up a lingering question regarding Katharine‘s gifts in the opening pages! Overall the story was insightful tho it left me wanting much more!

Coco @ReadingsByTheC I finished! I found myself surprised at liking Natalia more! 2y
ReadingsByTheC @Coco Me too. I can only imagine what would have happened to Kat if she hadn't been around. What did you think about Madrigal? 2y
Coco Madrigal opened up a whole slew of new questions. I didn‘t realize she was gone to the mainland for that long. Had they mentioned that in the other books? I liked her a little in book 1&2 bc she seemed so keen on helping Arsinoe but she seems malicious now! And poor Caragh 😩 @ReadingsByTheC (edited) 2y

EchoLogical @coco @ReadingsByTheC I just finished and I‘m devastated all over again. I definitely like Mirabella a lot more but I‘m still #TeamKatharine 😭 2y
ReadingsByTheC @EchoLogical @Coco Yes, Katharine definitely has gotten the short end of the stick all around. I just want her to have some happiness, poor thing. Maybe we can all do a buddy read when the 3rd book comes out in the fall. 😊 2y
EchoLogical @ReadingsByTheC I‘m in! I‘m not the best buddy reader though because I get ahead of myself and finish before schedule if the book‘s really good. 😅 2y
ReadingsByTheC @EchoLogical I totally know what you mean. 😅 2y
Coco Katharine‘s story is so much sadder knowing that she was never meant to be with the cruel poisoners 😩!! I‘m definitely down for a buddy read!!!! @ReadingsByTheC @EchoLogical !! 2y

Wow. You all were right, I did finish this book the same day I started it! Extremely well written and unpredictable, my heart aches for all the losses the characters endured. This is one of those stories that stay with you for a while. #bookreview #toughtopicstoread #worthit #quickread

Coco @FashionableObserver I finished! Such a rollercoaster read! Tomas by far captured my heart ❤️❤️ 2y
Coco @vkois88 I‘ve finished!! If this books on ur TBR pile I highly recommend it for a day where u can set aside time bc you will want to read it Cover to cover! It‘s a hard subject to read, so also pick a time that‘s the right mood for yourself and tag me when u finish it bc id like to know ur thoughts too! ❤️ 2y
Coco @Zelma I definitely support ur notion to be in the right mindset prior to reading this! Such a hard, but worthy story! Let me know when u get around to reading it yourself ❤️ 2y

Traitor to the Throne | Alwyn Hamilton
post image
Mehso-so

As w/ most series, Book1 was more favored in my opinion. The meat of this book took me a while to get thru &picked up towards the end. I loved Jin &Amani‘s relationship in Rebel of the Sands, but Traitor to the Throne left me wanting. I will say the ending was a shocker & left me💔! I think the last few chapters were the best of the entire book. Which leaves me hopeful that Book3 will be better. Who else has read this series? Thoughts? #bookreview

MarriedtoMrT I loved book one and own book two but I‘m waiting to read it until the third book is out. I‘m always worried about series where I had such strong feelings for the first book. I don‘t want to ruin them with crappy follow ups. 2y
Coco A few more thoughts I had... Hala is now a new favorite character of mine & absolutely loved how her and Amani are bonding & interested to see her take revenge for Imin, bc u know she will!! Also I kinda wish that Rahim & Amani would have bonded a bit more during her time in the harem to create a bit of a love triangle and friction. I just feel like her and Jins relationship is unfulfilling currently 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
Coco @MarriedtoMrT I think waiting for the 3rd installment would be a good idea bc now I‘m itching to know what happens next!! I feel like Book2s always struggle the most in every series, but I haven‘t lost hope in Book 3! (PS don‘t read my spoiler comment above lol) 2y

I listened to the audio version of this book and really enjoyed the full cast of narrators. I typically don't enjoy books with so many different perspectives and ones that lack a central climax, but this book surprised me! It takes place in 1970s Alaska, and tells the stories of local youth and their lives. Overall I found it to be a refreshing read. #historicalfiction #prettycovers #winterreads #audiobook

bookcyns I‘ve been debating whether or not I should read The Girl Who Drank The Moon, is it any good? 2y
Coco @arcyn97 I‘m really enjoying it! I find the authors writing lovely & descriptive! My son and I read each night at bedtime and this is our current book so I‘m going slower than usual to finish it. I think the story has a bit too much depth for him so he hasn‘t quite gotten into it.. But I really like it so far!! About 1/2 way in! 2y
