Got an advanced copy of this via NetGalley. One of the best books I've read in a REALLY long time. If you enjoy multicultural historical fiction, I highly recommend this one.

This was the next random pull off the shelf. Haven't been reading as much as I should lately. Serious case of writing brain 😨. But my novel should be finished by Jan. 31st, so there's that.

CherylDeFranceschi Yay! Go you! That's amazing! Fortitude! 3y

As someone with a music degree who's taught classical music for over a decade, this book is driving me crazy. (The number of bars will vary depending on the tempo of each movement and complexity of the thematic material.)

DitrieMarieBowie You follow the themes and structure not a set number of measures the way writers do with books. If anything, composers aim for time limits (5 minutes, 15 minutes, etc.) not number of measures. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Hahaha! Don't you hate when I book concentrates on something, but doesn't do it's research! 3y
DitrieMarieBowie @Riveted_Reader_Melissa it seems like he drew on his experience from piano lessons and playing cello. Some of what he references makes sense, but some of it is based on not-fully-informed assumptions based on limited experience. It's one of my biggest fears as a writer, which I guess is why I'm so hard on it when I see it elsewhere. 3y
Megabooks That's frustrating. I hate it when medical stuff is wrong in books. For example, The Mothers talks about titanium implants setting off metal detectors. They don't. 3y

Morgen's a fantastic British author, and you should check out her work. She's also a cat lover and a great friend.

Bilingual typos are the best. (She wound up saying "crates/boxes" instead of "balls".)

An abundance of imagined tech that doesn't feel dated. Weird plot structure and the ending was blasé. Some fantastic ideas, though.

Dated and hard to get into. Not a lot of action or forward moving plot until about two thirds into the book. The ending was satisfying, though.

The images in this book are gorgeous. Also, two books I'm reading are "The Last H--" I wonder if that's a sign. ?

Has funny moments but more than anything it's unabashedly honest. She holds a lens up to her life (specifically her love life) to showcase her flaws and makes profound statements on anxiety, aging, and feminism. (If you don't like profanity or reading about sex, this is not the book for you.)

If you're looking for erotic scenes, this book isn't for you. But if you like well-crafted historical romances with a dash of paranormal and a lean towards mystery, this is a great read.

Trigger warnings: abduction, confinement, fire

Been doing more writing than reading these days, but this book is way better than I thought it'd be. I might have to review it when I'm done.
