Queenie | Candice Carty-Williams
post image

Not quite finished, and not quite sure what I‘m feeling about this one. Have you read it? What did you think?

rdkate In the middle and feeling the same as you, really struggling to like this story and character 5d
GirlMeetsBook @rdkate keep going. I found Queenie became more relatable later on. I feel like the story is an important piece of literature; own voices, perspective that‘s missing from the general offerings in publishing, and all that. So I think it‘s valuable but... she was a tough character to sympathize with sometimes. 5d
rdkate @GirlMeetsBook you were right! Right after I posted the comment I started to like it! Tough book, but agree with your assessment! 10h

The Bride Test | Helen Hoang

All around I really enjoyed this, and I enjoyed it even more than the Kiss Quotient. HOWEVER, I have a really hard time with the fact that the author uses them term “sex” to refer to the female characters‘ genitalia in both books. It was used less frequently in this story so it wasn‘t as bad, which may be why I liked it better.

MaggieCarr I wrote similar sentiments in my review yesterday. 📚 I enjoyed this one even more than 1mo

TBH I hate all James Patterson books. Not sorry. It makes it very difficult to curate a good library collection on a budget when his ghost writers are cranking these out every week, and people keep requesting them! It‘s not quality. He has enough money. Let‘s all just let it go. #EndRant #Day12 #30DayBookChallenge

Can I just do a 39 day audiobook challenge? These are my JAM!!! With that said, don‘t take this recommendation lightly— The Inquisitor‘s Tale is an EXCELLENT audiobook. It‘s kid friendly, but adults will love the woven tale just as much. Like on par with Harry Potter. Yeah, I went there. #Day7 #30DayBookChallenege

So I don‘t usually do “the classics” but I‘d say the one that stuck with me the most was Emma. It was a high school read and became something of an inside joke with a good friend. I even read Alexander McCall Smith‘s remake of it; and liked it! #Day5 #30DayBookChallenge

Well y‘all, it‘s been a minute, but I have been reading! I just finished this for a book club, and if you‘ll looking for a holiday rom-com, this is it.

SPOILERS FROM HERE ON OUT!

Personally, I wanted something different out of it, though. I was hoping for a story in which the love at first sight didn‘t win out, but that all parties continued to have successful and happy lives. When L and O got engaged, I was really rooting for them.

Bailed. Couldn‘t do it. I got half way through and the third “superhero” was too much for me. I really wish this had come together better for me, the idea was really exciting but I think it went over my head. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Has anyone tried this? Thoughts?

Lindy I haven‘t yet, although it‘s already in my “to read” list. I still plan to give it a go. 1y
GirlMeetsBook @lindy You should!! I don‘t think anyone should heed my advice on this book. I‘m curious to hear others thoughts. I want to know what you think after you read it. Are you very familiar with comic characters? (edited) 1y
