Less: A Novel | Andrew Sean Greer
Panpan

This was something that I normally pick up, but I did for a book club. I was not all that interested in the characters. Maybe because the main character was self sorrowful. I did like the places that he traveled, but he never really fully solved his sorrow. Then again that could be one of the lessons the reader was to learn.

End of Watch | Stephen King

This was a great end to this trilogy. I will miss Hodges and Brady. Would really like to see a story with Jerome and/or Holly.

JacqMac I love Holly. She shows up in The Outsider. 2mo
Kempfme Thanks. I‘ll move that one up on my TBR. 2mo

The Mother's Promise | Sally Hepworth
Pickpick

This read is a love story of a mother and daughter. There are some moments that are triggering, but they are crafted in the story in a way that they are not traumatizing.

If I Was Your Girl | Meredith Russo

This quick read shows the struggles of a transgendered young lady.

A Curve in the Road | Julianne MacLean
Pickpick

A surgeon's life totally changes after a car accident on a cold drive back home from having lunch with her mother.

This was my first read from Julianne MacLean that I read for Girly Book Club. Her writing is moving. Even though this was an easy read, there were moments that I had to stop and collect my thoughts. She really makes you think what would you do if you were in the same situation. I look forward to reading more from her.

The main character is a bit stuck up. She wants the finer things in life but inherited a haunted run down house.

This book has been getting a bad wrap in my bookish circle. I think a lot of those that really don't like this book, are those that don't have a lot of experience with someone with a mental illness.
This is a great description of how life is like when you are locked into your mind. The story is slow and nothing really happens for a little bit over half the book, but that is just to show the reader how the main character's life is like.

So Lucky: A Novel | Nicola Griffith
Pickpick

This was an interesting look into the life of someone that has just found out that she has MS. The writing was brilliant despite the brevity of the story. The character's were so relatable and there was really emotion that moved the story along smoothly.

House of Broken Angels | Luis Alberto Urrea
Mehso-so

This story is set in two days, one during a funeral and the other during the last birthday of Big Angel, who is losing the battle with cancer.

The writing was great. I think I did not have any connection with cultural references and lifestyles of the characters. The story does reference some of the issues that Mexican immigrants face that have been in the media recently.

Warlight: A novel | Michael Ondaatje
Mehso-so

This historic tale of the life of a young man that uncovers the mystery of why he and his sister was orphaned by his parents and was raised by what seemed like criminals.

The writing is thrilling like Agatha Christi. I would recommend this to anyone that likes historical fiction, especially World War 2 history.

This is a coming of age story of an Ethiopian girl that hangs out with a parking lot attendant, who gets her involved with a revolution. The writing moves the story along well and the characters are relatable.

This is the first read by Owens, but will probably won‘t be the last. I enjoyed the balance of humor and seriousness in the tale of a woman trying to find her purpose.

This is an interesting read of a young teen getting to know her aunt after her mother dies.

The Boyfriend | Thomas Perry
Pickpick

This is my first read by Perry, even though this is a second in the Detective Till series. This is one of those series that each book can stand on its own. This one is about a serial hired killer and how Till tries to track him down.

Lying Game | Ruth Ware

This is a read of a dysfunctional family trying to function in hard times.

KateFulfordAuthor If you need another recommendation in a similar style, may I point you to my People‘s Book Prize nominated debut? Sassy female narrative, laugh out dialogue and a pacy plot. Check the link in the bio for 2 free chapters, reviews and more. 13mo

Pretty Baby | Mary Kubica
Pickpick

It was a TW story about a lot of issues. I really did not like most of the characters, but thinking that was the intention of Kubica. I did like that it had a great flow that kept you guessing as to what was/did happen.

I got this Arc from #netgalley for an honest review. I was expecting more than a man's delusion of being in love with one of his companies suspect's wife.

After a workout of shoulders and rowing, I'm listening to this read and knitting on this beauty.

MrBook I like rowing. One of my favorite workouts. Should've probably joined a crew team at some point, lol. 3y
