The Nix | Nathan Hill
post image
Pickpick

Wow! I love how this book all came together at the end.... well worth reading 600+ pages to get there. Hill has A LOT on his mind and much of it comes out in these pages. I laughed, I cried, I nodded my head in recognition, and gasped in amazement at the 13 PAGE sentence. This was a read/listen combo for me and the audio narration is outstanding. The Nix is the best book I've read this year! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Winter Storms | Elin Hilderbrand
post image
Pickpick

Women's fiction isn't usually my thing, but I've lost myself in Elin Hilderbrand's Winter Trilogy this week. The final installment seemed a little rushed and, if this is the end of our time with the Quinn family, ultimately unsatisfying. I'm wavering between a pick and a so-so here... guess I'll go with the pick😐

Sarahreadstoomuch When she came to my library last month she said there will be a 4th book in this series! 3y
Lakesidemusing @Sarahreadstoomuch Hooray! Not sure where I got the idea this was a trilogy, but I feel better about the ending knowing there will be more... 3y
Sarahreadstoomuch It was supposed to be a trilogy, but her editor asked (and paid her) for one more. So you're not crazy! 😜 3y

The Emperor's Children | Claire Messud
post image
Pickpick

Opinions vary widely, but I adored this book! Messud's writing is exceptional. Her characters, though not especially likable, are interesting and real. And she positively nails the setting - NYC and especially Watertown, NY. I was reminded of The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer, a favorite from a few years ago. The Emperor's Children is a strong contender for my favorite novel this year! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
