The Chicken Sisters | KJ Dell'Antonia
post image
Pickpick

A cute, fun, family dramedy. Liked it, didn‘t love it, but a solid 3.5 stars, and definitely a feel good read, perfect for when you want something lighter. I wanted to eat chicken the whole time...🍗🤷🏻‍♀️😂 Didn‘t have any chicken, so wine had to work. 🙃

Widowish: A Memoir | Melissa Gould
post image
Pickpick

I connected so much to Melissa‘s journey as someone who has also lost my SO, who had to make similar decisions about life support, and who has lived through my own grief journey. Although grief is an extremely personal and unique experience, it‘s nice to know you‘re not alone. Melissa‘s story was relatable, real, & beautiful. Her grief & love were palpable through her words. This was an incredible tribute to a beautiful relationship.

Eggs I read this too-it‘s authentic and shows that grief and loss is experienced differently by every individual. Sorry for your loss 💔😓 Lost my husband after 18 yrs of marriage and 3 daughters 8mo

Widowish: A Memoir | Melissa Gould

After just a few pages, I knew this one would hit home for me in a big way. Although completely different situations, there are some very spot on similarities between Melissa and Joel‘s story and my own story of losing my love and partner of 8 years, Rob. ❤️❤️❤️ Tissues and wine a must. #grief #memoir #loveisbeautiful

One of the best contemporary romances I‘ve ever read. Body positivity, dyslexia, fandoms, science, incredible journeys with self realization and being utterly comfortable in one‘s own skin, friendship, romance, literal laugh out loud moments, and steamy sex scenes, all seamlessly woven together into a lovely and fun story I had a hard time putting down. I loved almost every character, even the secondary ones...they all just felt so real. 🤗😍

4/5. I enjoyed this one well enough, but for some reason, I had a harder time really settling into a good rhythm with the writing. Ultimately, this was a creepy insight into our social media lives that had me guessing and WTFing until the very end. The story is told through multi-POVs which really helps round out the whole plot. #botm

The Guest Room: A Novel | Chris Bohjalian
post image
Pickpick

A fast-paced thriller that ramps up the intensity right out of the gates and continues to drop you tasty nuggets for the whole ride. There‘s a bit of everything packed in here...utter debauchery in the form of a wild bachelor party, complete with strippers, cheating, sex slavery, murder, blackmail, and family. What a great ride.

Optic Nerve | Maria Gainza
Mehso-so

The memories and anecdotes from the narrator‘s life interwoven with historical stories of artists and various works of art were beautifully stitched together, but I found myself wanting to know a bit more about our narrator. I enjoyed learning about the art, and looking up the artists and paintings while I read definitely enriched the experience, but I did find this a little hard to connect to sometimes.

This one started a little slow for me, but now that I‘m getting more into the meat of the story, I‘ve been enjoying it! It‘s a good spooky-light (really, not spooky at all...but there are ghosts and other supernatural beings) read for the season! 👻 Gatsby was enjoying rubbing his face on the corner and pawing at the pages last night too! 🐱❤️

JackOBotts Ditto to what @TheRomantiCate said. How does a BookCon work? Can anyone buy tickets? Do you have to buy all the books vs. are they being given away? Inquiring minds want to know! 😉🤗📚📚📚 3y

Soubhiville I have serious book envy right now! Wow! 😯 3y
Megnogged @JackOBotts Anyone can buy a ticket to BookCon! It‘s usually a good mix of books for purchase and ARCs/Galleys that they give away. A lot of times you need a ticket (handed out by the publishers, etc. at various times over the weekend) for the ARCs, but sometimes you just have to wait in a line and hope you end up being ahead enough in line you beat the cap. Cont. 👇🏼 3y
Megnogged It‘s definitely a lot of lines, but you also get to meet some pretty amazing book lovers while you‘re waiting!! 🥰 3y

A lightly thrilling domestic thriller that provides a peek into the sugar bowl (sugar daddies/babies) dynamic in New York. Immediately you know someone was murdered and then wind back through how everything went down. It was interesting how Harding wove everything together, and there were some decent twists. Overall, this was a nice light domestic thriller and a really quick read. Looking forward to reading some of her other books for comparison.

The Dispatcher | John Scalzi
Pickpick

Really enjoyed this! It was one of the options for the free Audible Original member benefits, and I‘m so happy with the selection I made! Such an interesting, dark, and gritty concept...and a bit sci-fy. This takes place sometime in the future and murder is basically not able to happen. People who are murdered find themselves back almost all of the time, safe at home in their beds (but naked). I didn‘t want my time in this world to end!
