Don't Cry for Me | Daniel Black

This was a heartfelt letter from a father to his son. It was an emotional read as they had an estranged relationship. The author writes this book as if it was his father writing to him. It‘s how he imagined his father would have written to him, had his father not forgotten things with Alzheimer‘s. This book was good, took me a while to read because I‘ve been in a reading slump, but good nonetheless.

This was a really cute audiobook, and the narrator did a fabulous job. This was a feel good listen.

Really fast paced book, definitely prepare yourself for the graphic nature, but really good all in all. I wouldn‘t exactly call this a thriller, more like a graphic drama I guess. It was good though.

Debated on giving this a pick or so-so rating and went with so-so. This audiobook was okay, I liked the ending and didn‘t mind that it was predictable, but all of the lives and options the main character had for her life got jumbled for me. I wanted to like it more, just found it lack luster.

Enjoyed listening to this one. If you can get past bad “country” accents, it‘s a good story of women empowerment and resilience in the 1930‘s. Also based on a true events, so that‘s cool.

What a wonderful book and story this was! This book gave me a new perspective on HIV and those living with HIV. I couldn‘t put this book down on several occasions because it kept me wanting more, but bedtimes and such… haha. Definitely recommend!

Becoming | Michelle Obama

Really enjoyed listening to Becoming, and especially loved that it was read by Michelle Obama. This book gave me insights that I hadn‘t known or thought about, and honestly made me miss the days when she was First Lady. Definitely recommend, even if you don‘t agree with her politics.

Another great thriller/mystery to add to my list. I enjoyed the twists and turns in this one more than I thought I would. Just when I was starting to figure things out, something else came and surprised me again! Definitely recommend this one if you like twists and turns that you don‘t see coming… for miles and miles!

Listened to this audiobook and as much as I enjoyed it, it also frustrated me to no end. lol. The misogyny in the fire department was just so much, but the good moments made up for it. Would definitely recommend.

This one was just okay to me. It wasn‘t bad, but also wasn‘t really a favorite. Nice story of friendship over time, just so so for me. I enjoyed the short stories aspect of it, showing me different times in the characters lives over decades.

marleed I was kind of the same way. It‘s an okay story, but not particularly memorable. I‘d wished I‘d chosen The Maid for my botm instead. Actually, I think that was part of my issue - about half way in I started regretting the books I could have chose instead. 3mo
Lizthewiz @marleed same! I thought the short story aspect of this book seemed cool, and I‘ve been trying to get more diverse books. This one just disappointed. 3mo

Wow. What an amazing book. I cried for most of the last 100 pages, so many emotional moments of sadness and joy. I loved seeing the development of all the characters, especially their relationships with one another. Evangeline‘s story of discovering love and the fact that she deserved love was so moving. 10 out of 10 would recommend the read.

I knew this book had a twist and I was looking out for it the whole time. It wasn‘t until I was reading it that I figured it out. Very good book and super fast read. I couldn‘t put it down because I was so invested.

“Let go of the life you‘ve planned and accept the life that‘s waiting for you.” Read this book in 2021, but have since discovered Litsy and wanted to share. This quote spoke to my soul and maybe it will speak to you as well. ❤️ I loved this book so much. You can feel the relationship struggles throughout but love and forgiveness win in the end.

This book was a great read. Probably a new favorite. More violence than I usually read, but the rest of the storyline more than made up for it.

Another audiobook! If you‘ve ever seen the movie Misery, this book is basically the same storyline. Sort of. It was a fast audiobook for me because I was so invested, and I would definitely recommend.
