I don't see how this book has been called "incredibly funny" since it's about a girl healing from extreme trauma. Yes, there were parts that made me chuckle because of her weird quirks but I still wouldnt say it's funny. The first 3/4 of this book is a slow simmer but then comes all together in the end. It's not a riveting story but I am still glad that I finished it. If you start this book, at least see it through

ElizabethBoa I'm not done reading it but I agree. There is funny quirky bits, but I also feel sad for Eleanor 1mo
Margot0817 @ElizabethBoa Let me know what you think when you finish it 😊 1mo
April5 I‘m glad to see your comment! I just finished and was thinking this the whole way through. I would describe it as sad over funny. 1mo

I think this story would be better if I had read it instead of listened to it because the narrorator's voice didn't show much emotion throughout the book. However, I still recommend it.

Hi. Picture for attention. I'm new here and I can't figure out how to change the book I'm actively reading at the top corner of my profile. What do I do? Thanks! Sorry, I feel kinda dumb lol

chaoticgoodhufflepuff If you click on the books at the top of your page, you‘ll be taken to a list of the books you‘re currently reading. You can then select a book, go to its page and press the button next to the cover image to change it from Reading to Have Read. Hope that helps! 2mo
JamieArc Just tap on the book, and then tap on the glasses icon. It should then ask you to choose between reading, have read, or want to read. 2mo

I like books that make me feel and make me think but this book was just too depressing with absolutely no signs of hope or improvement so I stopped half way through cause I couldn't handle it. 🤷‍♀️

I think the material would be good but with the way it's written I found it really difficult to follow for some reason. Kinda felt like a jumbledess, to be honest.

"13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother‘s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." Psalm 139

The best kind of Chick Lit there is- a hilarious story with a bunch of awkward moments as well as sexual tension.

A true story of the illegal adoptions from the Tennessee Children's Society. An awesome story of loss, perserverance and staying true to who you are no matter what.

I think this story would have been better if the narrorator on the audible was a bit less monotone but overall a decent story. Not life changing but it was a good beach read.

Grab a blanket and some tea or coffee and get ready to take some time and sit and reflect upon each poem. Each one will hit you differently than the last and each sldeserves some time for proper reflection.

Harmony | Carolyn Parkhurst
Pickpick

Pretty easy to read but really hit close to home since my brother has aspeberger's. I cried when thinking about my mother being in the same position trying to find the best path for her child. However, its not all supposed to be deep and thought provoking. Harmony has a bunch of quirks that make her really fun to follow as the story progresses. You adore her and her sister. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

The Pact: A Love Story | Jodi Picoult

I really love Jodi Picoult books even though I can't read too many in a row before of all the law themes.
See how life long friends are slowly torn apart over a mystery that keeps you guessing until the last page.

The Kite Runner: Rejacketed | Khaled Hosseini
Pickpick

Aren't we all just chasing after love and approval from someone that matters to us? Do you know what it's like to live your life with regrets circling round the back of your mind? This story captures how painful that journey can be and it makes you feel like you are right there with him. I don't recommend this for anyone under 18 but definitely 10/10 ⭐

Reconstructing Amelia | Kimberly McCreight

I usually don't pick books like this, but maybe I should, because this book was phenomenal! I love seeing the perspective of both the mother and the daughter and how they kept misunderstanding each other. A thriller mystery with a little bit of drama. The characters were real and relatable. 10/10

And the Mountains Echoed | Khaled Hosseini
Pickpick

Brilliantly shaped characters that show how generations past still affect our today. Khaled is one of my favorite authors but this book takes third to his others - the Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. However, this is still a really amazing book. I think i rate it thrid because I did not quote understand how he wrapped it up in the end but perhaps that's my bad. But really. It's totally awesome and you should check it out! Very moving.

A Thousand Splendid Suns | Khaled Hosseini

A relationship between two women married to the same man starts off as hatred and jealousy and turns into friendship and alliance. Such a profound story filled with many many trials that shape these women. This is a heartbreaking page turner that will forever be in my top favorites ten. Go check it out!

Circe | Madeline Miller
Pickpick

Circe was a seriously awesome book with a bad ass main character. I really love Greek mythology and this book touched on so many characters and kept it exciting. However, I'm not sure why, maybe it's a personal issue, but I did not understand the ending at all and I felt like I was just left hanging there. If anyone has read this, can you please explain it to me? Thanks!

Fig | Sarah Elizabeth Schantz

What an incredibly odd little book. It was interesting for sure to watch this girl go through all these psychological rituals but after a while I grew tired and grossed out by how many times this little girl was picking at her scabs to calm herself down. I get it and I get why but it seemed a bit too much. If you likef it, that's cool, but I don't think I would recommend this to anyone.

It was a little awkward reading this in a coffee shop because I just could. Not. Stop. LAUGHING. This girl is a blogger and is writing about all the awkward things she does to avoid her anxiety and how it makes it worse. I wonder if my husband will ever find me with a racoon in the kitchen at 3:00?🤔😂

Hestapleton I listened to the audiobook with headphones on a family road trip to see relatives for Thanksgiving. I was CACKLING to myself in the backseat and I think my family was ready to leave me by the side of the road! 2mo
Margot0817 That's hilarious! I kept reading this in the coffee shop while trying to cover my face and stifle my laughter. Every once in a while I think we just need to read something that's hilarious and this was definitely it. 😂 2mo

I gotta be honest, I only finished this book because at the time I was in a book club with a friend and she picked this book. I thought it was boring and left out details that were needed and highlighted things that weren't a big deal. I don't want to tell you not to read it because my friend thought it was good but for me it was just "Eh, alright."

I Am the Messenger | Markus Zusak
Pickpick

An easy read with a complex story. There's not much I can say without giving away details but I will say that if you feel like you're worthless or you need a self confidence boost or a reality check I recommend reading this book. You'll see how greatly you may impact someone else's life and it may help you make a shift in your own life.

The Book Thief | Markus Zusak
Pickpick

I've never seen any author describe things in a way that Markus Zusak does and I think his writing style is just brilliant. If you lived The Nightingale you're definitely going to love this. This story kept me on my toes the entire time and it made me feel so many emotions so deeply. I'd recommend again and again.

The Art of Hearing Heartbeats | Jan-Philipp Sendker
Pickpick

The way this book is written gives us such beautiful imagery of emotions. This is about what unconditional love really is. It wasn't the hot and passionate romance book but instead tale of a sweet and innocent love. Sometimes I still wonder why the main character went about things the way he did but in the end after reflecting about it I don't think I would change it. A very beautiful tale.

I know I know. People can't stop talking about this book, but there is a reason why! This is my all time favorite book filled with so many themes and twists. Whenever I find myself nervous I embrace the characters bravery and move on. Such a wonderful story that made me cry so many times. I'd recommend to anyone
