The Maidens: A Novel | Alex Michaelides

Mehso-so

My first Michaelides book. Had high expectations because of the rave reviews his debut has gotten. Unfortunately, this book didn‘t work for me. Plot and characters were a little flat and ending unbelievable. Full review here: https://bit.ly/3daIBAE

I‘m a fan of the series especially the last two, but the finale didn‘t quite work for me 😭 maybe because I had high hopes. I felt the new characters a little underwhelming and the plot dragged on in the middle. Full review here: https://bit.ly/3xp3npt Thank you Simon & Schuster for the galley of the book in exchange for an honest opinion.

Soubhiville I always grab a bookmark out of my collection when I start a book, and keep them together, so I don‘t use unusual things. BUT I love buying used books, and I always get a kick out of things I find in those: photos, postcards, plane tickets, reciepts, shopping lists, party invitations, the list is long and fun! 2d

The Book of Two Ways | Jodi Picoult
post image
Mehso-so

I‘m ambivalent abt this because on one hand, like many of her books, I got to learn something abt subjects that are foreign to me; on the other hand, it was this factor too that made it difficult for me to enjoy the story. ⬇️

Or read a full review: hookedonbookz.com

Jee_HookedOnBookz Unlike w her other books, I skimmed this quite a bit & like some reviewers hv mentioned, felt quite textbook-driven filled w research abt numerous subjects esp Egyptology & quantum mechanics. ❤️Picoult‘s works, but sadly, this wasn‘t my fav. 1y

Betty: A novel | Tiffany McDaniel
post image
Pickpick

A heartbreaking yet most moving, powerful book I‘ve read this year! ‘Betty‘ is about a family who, despite their idiosyncrasies & dark secrets, learned to cope & survive with what they had. It also gives voice to all victims of rape & abuse; to all the Bettys who are told they don‘t deserve anything good in this world, that they‘re worthless, that they should just sit at the sidelines and watch the world go by. Full review: https://bit.ly/3h7NE4v

I was surprised by how much I loved it. The straightforward, clean writing style allowed me to focus on the story & almost immediately I was drawn to Ting and her family‘s life in Shanghai, & how they were living during & after Mao‘s Cultural Revolution, while Mini & her family on the other hand, were trying to survive the pre-war days of Shanghai in the 1930‘s.
A great debut indeed!

A book about the livelihoods of people struggling to find their footing in a country they call home, which keeps robbing them of their identities, freedom & independence, repeatedly. And they stood their ground, fought back, rebelled, & self-immolated as a call for the freedom of their people & to bring their Dalai Lama back home.This is the Tibetans‘ story of their long fight to freedom while trying to preserve their culture, beliefs & language⬇️

This book, to borrow a line from it, is a story ‘full of lyric and rhyme and hope and laughter and joy and pain…‘. And beneath all its wit and humor, beneath all the ugly truths about race and class is a poignant story of community and humanity, love & kinship. It just showed that no matter our race & status, lay our desire to live a life with purpose, to be significant, to leave our mark, to love & to be loved. Full review: https://bit.ly/2D2qZYM

Jivan‘s life changed for the worst when she posted a message on Facebook in response to a post about a train being attacked by terrorists, that burned and killed 100 people. Just like that, her dreams of working up her way to ‘just middle-class‘, turned to ashes. This 22-year-old Muslim girl was charged for working with terrorists and was incarcerated.

An absolutely brilliant debut! A must-read!

Sex scenes aside, overall, I thought this was an interesting & a daring ‘What-if‘ story. However, I was more fascinated by how Sittenfeld was able to weave fact into fiction to create a plausible plot for fictional Hillary, than the story as a whole. Did I regret reading it? Definitely not! It turned out to be quite an interesting & at times, amusing story! One that I'd remember for some time :) Full review here: https://bit.ly/2VqwDdU

The Starless Sea | Erin Morgenstern

This is a book about books about stories about stories, interspersing with one another, Zach‘s being the main, interspersing with stories of the pirate and the girl, Dorian, Fate & Time, Simon & Eleanor, Mirabel and the Keeper, the Moon & the Innkeeper & a few more others. I enjoyed them all, & seeing how they all came together was so satisfying & beautiful.

Might not be everyone's cup of honey, though.

Jee_HookedOnBookz If you pay attention to its words and the little details, you‘d be rewarded at the end. I think Kat summed up this book best: “Epic branching story that doesn‘t stick to a single genre or one set path and turns into different stories but it‘s all the same story.” 2y
Jee_HookedOnBookz But if you, like me, love dreamy, whimsical stories, then suspend disbelief, grab a copy and set sail across The Starless Sea and breathe the haunting air…May you be enchanted by its with magic and endless breathtaking stories… 2y

Dear Edward | Ann Napolitano

191 passengers died in a plane crash, including Edward‘s family. Edward was the only survivor.
This is a tough read on many levels. How do you deal with loss at such a young age? Loss of loved ones is unfathomable, let alone dealing with it. What happens to your life? How do you move on? And the constant question of ‘Why me?‘

arubabookwoman Adding it to my WL, especially since I enjoyed her earlier book so much. I'm still thinking about The Garden of Evening Mists.😀 2y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @arubabookwoman what's WL? So glad you enjoyed Evening Mists too! Did you know it has been made into a movie?? https://m.imdb.com/title/tt8434152/ 2y
arubabookwoman WL = Wishlist Books--books I'm on the lookout for at the Library, bookstores, etc., as opposed to TBR (to be read)---books I already own, on my Kindle or physical book shelf, waiting to be read. 2y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @arubabookwoman ahhhhhh! Got it! Thank you!💕 2y

Woah. What a thrilling ride this was! The novel was fast-paced, kept me turning the pages, and when I wasn‘t, I kept thinking about Jazz. She is unlike any other protagonists in all the psychological thrillers I've read so far, a reliable narrator for one, and not an alcoholic! She‘s tough, no-nonsense, smart, funny and one helluva bad-ass!

Mehso-so

I must admit this novel wasn‘t love at first read, but it grew on me especially towards the second half, where I felt the characters were slowly opening up, and the story became more fluid. I loved watching how Eve and Daniella changed over the years; how the changes in themselves affected their relationship and perception of each other. (Full review: https://bit.ly/2PLlSjL)

Jee_HookedOnBookz Spanning over 30 years, this novel covered numerous issues, from race to politics and feminism, homosexuality and sexual harassment, even anti-semitism, which in my opinion, was thoroughly researched and well done. 2y

The Dutch House | Ann Patchett
post image
Pickpick

This is dysfunctional family drama at best. Many tender moments between the siblings, their caretakers and stepsisters, but also infuriating moments with their stepmother, Andrea. Celeste was a close second. Elna surprised me most of all. And the ending was just the way I like it! Beautiful, just beautiful! And yes, I teared up a little. My first Patchett & won't be my last!

A book meant to be savored!

The Institute | Stephen King

Pickpick

The novel opened with Tim Jamieson, an ex-police officer whose life was about to change when he decided to give up his flight seat to a federal officer. Instead of New York, he ended up in DuPray as a night-knocker. We then meet Luke & his other friends at the Institute where they were abused & tortured for reasons only known to the staff.

Dark, disturbing & thought-provoking!👍🏼My first King! Full review on https://bit.ly/2DD5qLs

lele1432 I'm hoping to get to this one before the year is over! It seems really good! 2y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @lele1432 yes! I enjoyed it! Some parts were really brutal though, so be warned! I skimmed those parts 😁 2y

This wasn‘t an easy read. I was overcome w a lot of emotions–pained and saddened by what the survivors had to go through, perturbed & angry that there are monsters & serial abusers like Weinstein & Lauer, still among us, preying, attacking & silencing their victims with money & power; whose manipulation & intimidation made the victims doubt their own story & made themselves drown in guilt and depression.
