One Life | Megan Rapinoe

Wasn‘t sure what to expect. About 2/3 through and really like it. Soccer games and behind the scenes, politics, family, activism, dating… are all threaded together. She has long been one of my favorite players. I have no idea how I missed when this came out! Audiobook so I could hear her words in her voice. 👍

Run, Rose, Run: A Novel | James Patterson, Dolly Parton

Mehso-so

Ehhh. Extremely simplistic writing. Characters weren‘t well developed, even mildly irritating in their one dimensionality. The thriller elements were sort of scotch taped together and didn‘t always even make sense. I love Dolly, so I finished. All the song writing was phenomenal. The rest was barely tolerable. Sorry to say!!

Bren912 Sadly, i am led to believe this author has people penning under his name and tutelage. Feels like such different writing than in early years. 3mo
MMFinck @Bren912 I don‘t read a lot of him. I did read his women‘s fiction way back and enjoyed it. I really wanted to like this one. Oh well! Onto the next book! :) I‘m reading The Paper Palace rn. Phenomenal! 3mo

I found the depressiveness in this one draining, but that didn‘t stop me from reading every single part of the series. I love Charlie and Nick.

Beyond a doubt one of my favorite novels I have ever read. All the stars. Ended the last page, eyes a little welled, nose a little runny, heart very full. ❤️ Put this on your TBR.

So good. I know the ending wasn‘t a twist, but this book was very good from beginning to end. Didn‘t love the Stuart plot line, but still. ❤️

I‘m not a huge fan of multi-verse stories in general, so I‘m not opining on that part. All the rest was deep, very deep, and well done.

HUGEST CONGRATS TO YOU GUYS FOR YOUR INCREDIBLE READING STATS!!!! I saw three friends who'd read over 200 books this year! WOWZA! I bow at your feet. :) Happy New Year, everyone! xx

HNY to you all, my beautiful, much treasured friends! I love you. ❤
For the past 5 yrs, I've aimed to read 52 books in 52 weeks, a feat to me that seems impossible every year. I also love film, tv, puzzles, music, family time, and I refuse to give any of that up. This yr, I didn't I think I'd made it, but somehow I exceeded my goal. 61!! (not 62 as it shows. I think goodreads is too overwhelmed by other NYE partiers for correction bandwidth. ;))

Went into this with low expectations, came out blown away. I had no idea about this moment in US history. I am forever changed by reading this one. So good. High stakes. Such courage and humanity.

Absolutely perfect. A perfect gift book because I honestly can‘t think of a person who wouldn‘t enjoy it. I didn‘t know it was the prequel to The Hate U Give until halfway through. It‘s wonderful that it is, but it stands alone just fine.

TheLudicReader I love Maverick. Have you read The Hate U Give? If not, it‘s worth the read. 11mo
MMFinck @TheLudicReader Me too. You know, I haven‘t. I saw the film and thought it was phenomenal. I have a hard time reading books after I‘ve seen the film. I wish I‘d gotten to that one. 11mo

Read 3/4 before. Finished this time! Yay. (Spoiler: I really don‘t enjoy suppressed memories as a plot device, especially not as the last twist. It doesn‘t come across as a “gotcha” for me; more like an easy out. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
