Finished Chunkster number 2! I enjoyed some storylines better than others, but loved all of the endearing characters…and some of the not-so-endearing ones, too! I‘m looking at you, Uriah Heep! I think I his one will warrant a reread at some point!

Sace @TheBookHippie I just listened to a podcast today with a segment about overhyped books. This one came up. The presenters love this author but apparently the characters in her book usually go through a lot of calamities. 😂 I‘ve never read her though. 2mo

GinaKButler @Sace Thank you! I‘ll check it out! I listened to Anne Bogel‘s podcast and read her blog first ages, but the past couple of years I haven‘t cared for her recommendations. If you come across any that you‘d recommend, please share! 2mo
GinaKButler @AmyG There aren‘t many historical fictions set during Vietnam, so I am curious about that. My dad served in that war and has told me stories about what happened there, and how he was treated when he came home… 2mo
