There were times when I didn't find it a "real page turner" and there were times when I did. In the last few pages it all came together like a nicely wrapped gift that I had untied and now I can't stop crying. Absolutely love and recommend this book

Kristin has done it again! In my opinion it was far better than The Great Alone but not QUITE as good as Night Road or Nightingale but definitely still worth the read. Amazing! One of the best authors at creating full rounded characters.

I really enjoyed this book but I must say, the ending was so abrupt that I kept flipping through the acknowledgments wondering where the rest was. How did it end like that?! Like there were at least 20 pages left?! I feel like I have emotional whiplash that will never be resolved. I really enjoyed the book and want to give it a pick very badly but because of this ending I will give it a So-so

Im not sure how I feel about this book. I'm torn between thinking it's beautiful and hating the main character. I can't blame her for doing what she does because she never had a support system but still it makes me upset. I almost bailed a few times but I am glad I finished. Sorry for the lame review but I don't think I have words to describe it fully.

I love love love Sarah Dessen! I finished this book in under 24 hours which is my all time fastest record. (I'm a slow reader) Anyways, I love this book. Realistic with very likeable characters. It was one of those books that I could see and imagine very vividly on my mind-like seeing it as a movie. Highly recommend!

Reading this book somewhat felt like a chore but I kept going because I felt strongly that the ending would be mind blowing. The book had a ton of characters that I felt was difficult to balance in the first half of the book but after some time it wasnt as hard to remember who was who. I didn't like a single character. I will say, though, that I do see how someone would love this and the ending was not at all expected which was rewarding.

First time reading (okay listening this time) from this author. We are half way through the year, Littens, and I am giving this book the "Best book of the year so far" award! A mix of Fried Green Tomatoes, The Light Between Oceans and Where the Crawdads Sing. All of these aspects wrapped up together and placed in the Appalachian mountains. I'll be talking about this book for a long time!

Magical Realism is a genre I always wanted but I didn't even know existed! I really enjoy the subtle hints of fantasy in an otherwise normal world.

I won't lie, I have literally no clue how the mystery was solved. By the end I heard all these names I hadnt heard throughout the story and it really confused me. I can't tell you what happened, but I CAN tell you I enjoyed listening to all the weird side stories along the way. I'm sure my not understanding is a personal issue because I listened to it so I'll give it a pick anyway.

I've been avoiding this author for so long only because I think her covers are boring. Well, reading this has changed my mind on judging a book by its cover! (somewhat lol) This was such an interesting story with very unique and deeply developed characters. I laughed out loud many times. I can't wait to get my paws on more her books!

I enjoyed reading this story and watching the characters progress over time. For a debut novel, this was a great experience that is rich in Afghan culture and tradition! Loved every minute of it. I do wish, however, one of the more main characters had more depth to her personality but it didn't ruin anything for me. Overall a great pick 😁

The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah

I'm a HUGE fan of Kristin's work but I would say this is my least favorite of her books. I didn't feel captivated by it until somewhere near the end. After I finished it I was glad I had read it but getting through the first half for me was hard. I think i struggled because there didn't seem to be a clear goal for the characters at first (in my mind) and I had no idea where we were going. Its okay but I LOVE Night Road and Nightingale worlds more

The.Great.Catsby I totally agree. I felt like I was waiting for the story to actually start until suddenly it was almost over. 2y

It has been a while since I have read a book that I enjoyed as much I enjoyed this one! I loved the style of writing and fun old fashioned phrases I will now try to use in everyday life. I love Anne's vivid imagination and how she is always trying to make the best of things. It was all so simply romantic! (as Anne would say)

Tom Hanks did a fantastic job narrating this book! I don't know even know where to start describing this story so I will just use a set of words. Nostalgia. Bitterness. Curiosity. Searching. Needing answers. Growing up. Sibling relationships.
I loved the simple yet captivating style of writing. I'd give it four stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

On March 30th we found out very suddenly that my husband of seven months has lymphoma. He has been in the hospital for 21 of those days. This is such a challenging time and on top of that I can't visit him because of covid regulations at hospitals (once he's admitted)I've had to take him to the ER about four times since then. I'm now sitting here in a dark ER room waiting for him to be transferred to his normal hospital. Please pray for him 🙏💕

trazo I am so sorry to hear that your husband has lymphoma. My thoughts are with both of you, hoping for the best! 2y

Lean on Me | Pat Simmons

This book is based in my hometown, which I love, because I recognize all the landmarks and street names she uses and that makes it fun. I also love books about faith. However, this book is overly sweet and light for it to be about a painful and tragic diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. Very predictable. This book is more like a straight line than ups, downs, a climax and a resolution which makes it kind of boring. When will I find a book I LOVE?

I thought the writing style was really neat. It's about a restaurant that teaches a cooking class once a month. The students vary from an old couple, a new mom, a depressed single man, goth chick, etc. We watch them grow to know each other while also getting peeks into their private lives. I rated it a so so because I couldn't finish it despite the neat style. There's just only so much I can read about the passion of kneading dough like a lover.

Sometimes she's excellent and sometimes she just crashes and burns. Sophie often writes like every scene has to be a huge awkward moment or some sort of triumph which creates no contrast in the writing. It makes reading this feel like you're crawling through mud. Loved her book "I've Got Your Number" but bailed on this after three hours of audio book.

I knew I would enjoy this book but it exceeded my expectations. I love reading books that switches between different characters POVs. All of the characters are perfectly crafted and I'm not sure if I could pick a favorite. Although the topic, segregation, is not funny I constantly found myself laughing out loud at the honest and witty banter between characters or their inner monologs. This book truly deserves the the title of NY Times Best Seller

Eve: A Novel | WM. Paul Young
Bailedbailed

Oh goodness. This book is wild and not in a good way. The writing is awful and full of incomplete sentences. The writing jumps back and forth and is unclear. Above all the theology in this book is off and I think it would be confusing for a non Christian who is trying to learn about the faith-in my opinion it doesn't shine a good light on it.

I read this book because I loved The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns so I wanted to read about Afghanistan from the view point of a different author. The beginning was beautiful and had an interesting twist. However, by the end I felt like it was hard to read and I tolerated the last few chapters. I am so disappointed in the ending. It's not how I wanted the last page to be. Maybe some people could appreciate the cliffhanger like ending.

I realized after I started this book that it is probably written for a teenage audience but I don't mind because it was so adorable!
