Cemetery Road | Greg Iles

Mehso-so

I went into this with high expectations that turned to “meh.” The story itself was interesting enough to keep me reading, but I just couldn‘t connect with any of the characters. That, unfortunately, made the book fall flat for me.

Haul from Snowball Bookshop, 15 books for under $20. I got rid of four boxes of books last year in an attempt to declutter, but keep acquiring more. It‘s a vicious cycle, people! 😂

1) I do, and don‘t keep a journal. I‘ve been thinking of writing again, so maybe a dream journal might give me ideas. 🤔
2) A dragon, and I‘d name him Fitz.
3) Elizabeth Bennet from Pride & Prejudice
4) Currently the lands in The Priory of the Orange Tree.

When I first saw the format this book was written in, I wasn‘t sure if I‘d get into it, but it pulled me in right away. The Fleetwood Mac/seventies bands influence is obvious, but these characters stand on their own. And get under your skin. The ending was too open ended for my taste, but all in all a great story with lots of ups, downs, and emotional moments. A keeper.

4) No, the beauty of borrowing electronically is that your books automatically return on the due date. Plus, you get notifications when the loan is about to end. No stress no fuss!

I usually don‘t jump all over a book by an author unknown to me, but I‘ve been keeping my eye on this one for several months and took the plunge. I‘ve been looking for a big, epic fantasy, and this beauty is right up my alley. Fingers crossed that I like it!

I hadn‘t heard of this wonderful book until last year when my cousin‘s son was reading it. The main themes are empathy and kindness, which we need much more of in this world. Highly recommended for readers of all ages!

I love this book! I was expecting a fluffy holiday romance when I first started reading, and it‘s not. Even though it‘s labeled as romance and there‘s a central love story, I consider it more of a coming of age tale. Three friends navigate their twenties dealing with careers, relationships, and challenges. There‘s plenty of angst, uncertainty, and mistakes being made, but that‘s what makes it real. This is definitely a keeper and a reread!

I‘m really sad about this one because I was so excited about it. Started out well enough, an ancient manuscript in a library is total catnip for me, but it went downhill fast. The plot moves slowly and I slogged through 200 pages before giving up. Also, SO over vampire love interests, just my personal preference.

Favorite scary book is The Exorcist, even more terrifying than the movie. To this day I dislike ouija boards.

Couldn‘t put this down! It has all the fantasy elements I love, though the romance is a bit underwhelming. That‘s really not important though because the heart of the book is about a young woman‘s journey, with a little help from her friends. Big thumbs up for the strong and beautiful female friendship, loyal friends who have one‘s back (literally and figuratively here) are a blessing.
