The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah

This book just landed in my top three reads of 2019. It was channeling many “Where the Crawdads Sing” vibes for me. I loved the characters and the way the author portrayed the wilderness of Alaska. “The Great Alone” is a memorable coming of age story focusing on the complexity of love and how it can be used to overcome the darkest of times.

I would classify this as a “guilty pleasure” read filled with love, deception and lots of drama. Honestly, reading this made me feel like I was watching a season of “Days of Our Lives,” BUT... I‘m not ashamed to say I liked it! Looking forward to book #2! 😁

I loved this book! Keane is a master storyteller. I was captivated by all the characters and their perspectives. Such a great book about love, forgiveness and the importance of family.

The Bride Test | Helen Hoang

The Bride Test was a quick, easy and fun read. Definitely needed after tackling the Goldfinch. I enjoyed the interweaving between this book and Hoang‘s other novel, The Kiss Quotient. Her perspective as a Vietnamese American is refreshing and adds a lot of fun elements to a typically predictable and cliche genre. A great summer read!

Although The Goldfinch was a very slow read for me, I‘m extremely satisfied with the entirety of the story. If you asked me what I thought as I was reading, I would have no answer for you. I truly developed a love for this book during its final pages. Tartt posed many heavy questions for the reader and I have no doubt I‘ll be thinking about them for a long time. Also, bring tissues to the upcoming movie!

This was my first Hercule Poirot mystery and I was not disappointed. Can‘t wait to read more of his adventures!

Taylor Jenkins Reid is a master story-teller. I could not put this book down. I think Evelyn Hugo beats Daisy Jones by a long shot!

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie

I now understand why they call her “The Queen of Crime.” I can‘t wait to read more Agatha Christie! I honestly couldn‘t stop listening to this Audible.

This book was the epitome of a beautiful tragedy. You will love the characters and the story. A great pre or post Circe read!

I won‘t lie, it took me a long time to get into this Audible listen, but I am so happy I endured. I fell in love with Eleanor‘s character in the last parts of the book. I haven‘t felt true empathy for a character like this in awhile!

The Winter Sister | Megan Collins
Mehso-so

This book was just OK. I wasn‘t a fan of the main character and the ending was fairly predictable.

hyperashley Glad I'm not the only one that felt this way! 3mo
