Two recent reads, very different but loved both. My first book with each author, and I‘m a fan!
Loved this! Ghost story, murder mystery, and the power of friendship. Reminded me of Jennifer McMahon, of whom I am a fan.
I enjoyed both of these immensely. This is the 20th in Elizabeth George‘s Lynley series, and I agree with others that it felt like she went back to the original recipe I‘ve enjoyed in the past. This was only my second Kristin Hannah (after The Nightingale of course) and she‘s become a favorite author of mine as well. I‘m looking forward to working my way through her back catalogue.
When you want to buy lotion from Amazon and it would be criminal not to get a few books while you‘re at it
I read these three books during my recent vacation, but definitely saved the best for last. I loved The Fireman. After NOS4A2 my expectations were way more out there than this comparatively down to earth book was. It kept me guessing and engaged and I loved the shout outs to many of my favorite books, including some written by Mr Hill and Uncle Stevie. I won‘t wait this long to read his next book.
❤️💚💙 I decided to listen to the audiobook after buying her newest novel. I'm sad I waited so long to discover Ms. Ng! But perhaps I was supposed to wait, as I've realized my love of twisty mysteries and YA dystopia has faded and I am now digging familial drama. I loved it. Very excited to read Little Fires Everywhere.
This is the second McMahon book I've read, and I'm happy to have discovered her. I enjoyed it quite a bit, although the ending felt a bit rushed to me.
Man. This book is not very good. I'm a fan of this type of YA, and early on accepted that it's written like 80% of them. But as it went on, the dialogue got worse as the plot became predictable and nonsensical. I actually cringed a few times imaging how proud the author must have been as he wrote some of these lines. If you're tempted to read this, may I recommend Rainbow Rowell's Carry On instead? It's fantastic.
