How dare my library display this book on their holiday table? This is not a light-hearted Christmas read! Imagine my surprise when I bawled through the last 60ish pages. It was SO good but don‘t make the same mistake I did in thinking it was a cozy Christmas story. 🤣🤣 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ / 5!

Insearchofbooks I‘m glad you like it!!! Also, is case you didn‘t see the instructions on the hot chocolate (they‘re hidden in tiny print at the bottom of the back label lol), you need to add your milk or water while it‘s boiling. Then you get a super thick, almost-almost-pudding italian-style hot chocolate 💜 (edited) 13mo

With so much buzz around this book right now, I wasn‘t sure how I‘d feel about it, but man. In this case it‘s worth the hype. I loved it and I really appreciated that there wasn‘t some mind-bendy twist so many thrillers seem to implement. This was really solid from start to finish and really made me wonder how I‘d handle things if I were in this situation, especially considering my child is the same age as Hanna. Everyone needs to read it!

I‘ve been spending my summer reading through Elin Hilderbrand‘s backlog and it‘s been wonderful. Taking a break from Nantucket for this quick thriller, which is my book club‘s August pick. Have you read it? What did you think?

This one‘s a slow burn (heh heh) for me but I‘m intrigued and hoping it sparks (there I go again, zing!) good discussion at book club. 🔥🔥

What I love about her books is the slow burn. This is not a fast paced novel, but more of an unraveling, which is perfect for these humid, never-ending summer days.

KateFulfordAuthor If you need a different 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. 1y

There‘s just something about being midway through a thick library book that makes me all swoony. When it lays flat without needing to be held, I hear angels, y‘all. This evening‘s tiny joy brought to you by Curtis Sittenfeld‘s American Wife, which i have been thoroughly enjoying. 📖

“Writing this now, I‘m struck by two incompatible truths that pain me. No one would have taken more joy from this book than my mother. And I probably wouldn‘t have felt the freedom to write it until she was gone.” I have a complicated relationship with my mom too so this struck a loud chord for me. 💕

This book was so good. I find that I love so much to read really big books about a character's life from beginning to end. Big, meandering stories where there are 800 characters but they're all pertinent to the story and they all circle back over the decades. Getting lost in their goings-on is just so damn pleasurable. This is one of those reads. Cyril Avery, I wish you were real. It was such a treat.
