2019 Book 30: If you need a good cry, here‘s your book. Beautiful story of God‘s amazing providence. God works in ways we don‘t always understand. Especially when it‘s a tough thing we have to go through. But He is always good. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

2019 Book 29: I love a good psychological thriller, and this one was great! I read their second book before I read this one, and I have to say they are masters at their craft. The opposing viewpoints (the creepiest one written in second person) made this story chilling. Highly recommend!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

2019 Book 28: I stayed up waaaaaaay too late trying to finish this last night. 3 am. I never do that, but just could not stop reading. Very interesting story with cool settings like Bora Bora and London. I really enjoyed the twist ending although I did guess that might be the case. Still a great read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I went to the first annual Strawberry Full Moon Book Swap tonight at Watermark Books in Wichita. I chose Less. They also gave each of us a wrapped ARC. I scored with The Guest Book! I think I‘m more excited about that one than the one I chose!

mdm139 I am so jealous. Watermark is my favorite indie book store. I went to a book club every week there when I lived in Wichita. 1mo

2019 Book 25: Hmmm... where do I begin? To start with, it took over half the book to grab me, but once it did, I couldn‘t put it down. I had to know what was coming. And I didn‘t see it coming. There is a pretty big plot twist to this book that I kept waiting for. I have to say it was worth the wait. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

2019 Book 24: One of the few times I‘ve watched the movie before reading the book... I liked this book a lot although found myself a little annoyed with all the designer names and brands. I definitely couldn‘t live to only care what other people thought of me. Great story about a place I don‘t know much about, so I feel like I learned something and expanded my horizons a little. I think I‘d like to visit Singapore someday. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

2019 Book 23: If you don‘t know anything about the Middle East, this book will enlighten you. Reading books like this makes me so thankful to be a woman born in the United States. My heart breaks for the oppressed women who are still suffering this type of abuse, although I am glad to know there are men who value women in those countries. Highly recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

2019 Book 22: As expected, a WWII story isn‘t going to leave you with a necessarily happy ending. This one is no exception, although the people who worked with the resistance during that time were true heroes. Ruby, the mc, and her friends risk their lives to make the world a better place. Definitely a bit of a soul crusher ending, but overall, a wonderful message of hope in times of darkness. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had to bail on this book. I‘m not connecting with the characters, and I find myself not caring whether they make it big. Life is too short to read books you don‘t love.

2019 Book 21: well I‘m not quite sure how to review this book. I did like the plot twist. I have to say I didn‘t see that coming. The characters were creepy though, and I don‘t like the subject of torture, so that was a bit off-putting for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

2019 Book 19: I usually judge a book by how easy it is for me to put it down. This one drew me in and here it is, 1 am, and I had to finish. The characters, although not always likable, were captivating. I feel a little sadness at the end of this book because it doesn‘t end with the usual happy ending. Just don‘t make yourself learn lessons the hard way—good advice from this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

2019 Book 18: There‘s nothing much “normal” about these characters. I have to say that I don‘t really get the point of this book. There was no plot really, no climax. Just a long story about two people that I found myself not caring about. The lack of quotation marks throughout the book also makes the reader feel detached from the characters. This isn‘t one I‘ll recommend or remember much about. ⭐️

2019 Book 17: GO BUY THIS BOOK. If you haven‘t read it, go get it, open it up, and read it now. This book is not only a beautiful story, but written beautifully. Her use of vivid details, descriptive imagery, and metaphorical language wrapped around my English teacher heart. I‘m telling you, this book is beautiful. Not to mention the characters and the relationship you build with Kya as you read. Best book I‘ve read in 2019 so far! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

2019 Book 16: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Absolutely beautiful and at times, heartbreaking story of WW2 Italy. Pino Lella might be one of my favorite characters, even though he‘s an actual person! The images of the atrocities of war blended with his love for Anna made for one of my best reads this year.

World War II stories always intrigue me, and this is no different. This story takes place in Italy, which is different than any other novel I‘ve read, and is based on the true story of a young Italian man. It started out a little slow but has gotten to the point of being un-put-downable.

2019 Book 14: this is a reread for my high school book club but it was just as good the second time. I adore this book, the characters, and the lessons behind it. I‘ve never quite understood how a person‘s color makes them less. Sadly things haven‘t progressed in the US as much as they should have since the setting of this book.
My students have been loving the book, so I think the success of that speaks for itself.
