Haven‘t read fiction in almost two years (thanks to grad school). I‘m not sure how I feel about this one but I keep going back to it. 🤷🏾‍♀️

rachelm It was fun I thought. I‘m going to check out her second one 11mo
LeahsBookNest @rachelm more of a reason to finish it! Had no idea about the second book. 11mo
Reggie The male in here, Drew, really got on my nerves. I can‘t decide if he was written bad or if he‘s just emotionally crippled. 11mo

*UNPOPULAR OPINION* I won't say much, but, the WTF ending was so disappointing! There's no way possible that anyone can predict it so don't even try. I wanted to throw this one across the room.

MicheleinPhilly I'm with you. I LOLed. It was completely ridiculous. 3y

I've had such an amazing V-Day! My secret Cupid did an awesome job choosing the perfect books for me. I've had Swing Time on hold at the library for WEEKS and now I own it. Just finished Kindred and I plan on tackling all of Octavia Butler's fantasy novels. The Jane Eyre novel journal is my personal favorite, accompanied by the book. I have yet to read Persuasion but now I must. @EmilyChristine thank you so so much for your effort! You rock!

EmilyChristine Yay! I'm so glad you like everything! 😁 3y

I can appreciate the Indian dishes, customs, and traditions mentioned so it's a 3 star book for me. The romance made me roll my eyes one too many times but I'd be open to reading book #2. Most of the book takes place in America; you will also visit Mumbai and Rajasthan too. I think I'm going to watch my first Bollywood film. 😊

RealLifeReading Haha so much eye rolling in this book!! 3y

2.5 stars A few of her satirical short stories were engaging and others were just okay. As an African American housewife and military spouse, I can't relate. This book isn't for me.

YA fantasy/historical fiction. I've been looking forward to reading this one but I'm not enjoying it and I don't want to waste any more time. Going to pick up another and try to come back to it later.

Chessa It took me to almost the 70% mark to start really enjoying this one. The pacing was super slow, but it did come together in the end (for me anyway!) 3y

In the Woods | Tana French

Pickpick

There is more here than meets the eye, folks. Wouldn't consider this a fast paced mystery/thriller, however, Tana's writing is superb and you'll want to take your sweet time savoring every word. Forensic psychology lovers will appreciate this. Not in a rush to read the second book in the series but I definitely recommend In The Woods.

AGirlAndHerBooks I read this book last summer (my first Tana French) and was very impressed! It was excellently written, far exceeding my expectation of a "murder story". I'm hoping to read another (or two) of hers this year. ????? 3y
Suzze That's how I felt about it. Great writing. But I read it when it first came out and her next one (which I own) hasn't been calling me! 3y
tammysue Great review thanks! I'm just now starting on this series. 🤓👍🏻 3y
SonjaYoerg I've heard such wonderful things about her stories. Adding to the stack! 📚😊 3y
respekt1111 I've read the first 3 in her Dublin Murder Squad series and the first was by far the best. French is definitely an above average murder mystery writer. Her dialogue is on point👍 3y

Happy New Year everyone! On my way back to El Paso 😔 with my family. Challenging myself to read 60 books this year. First book to read in 2017 is In the Woods by Tana French. If you've read it, what were your thoughts?

MicheleinPhilly I loved it and knew afterwards that I would read everything Tana French writes. Really solid literary thriller. 3y

Scythe | Neal Shusterman
post image
Pickpick

Neal Shusterman is an author that I want to explore in 2017! So I haven't read a lot of YA dystopian novels but I do know that this one was GREAT. Two young adults chosen to help control population by "gleaning" and giving immunity to other citizens in MidMerica. They become apprentices to the most powerful scythes and their loyalty is tested. To be honest, I can't summarize the book well enough so just read it lol. 5 stars from me!
