The Hunger | Alma Katsu
post image
Mehso-so

The Hunger is a fiction book based on the Donner Party which was a group of pioneers that migrated to CA in wagon trains and were forced to cannibalism after being stranded in winter on mountains of the Sierra Nevada. Supernatural events were added to make this story super creepy. / The Non fiction book based on true events was horrifying and heartbreaking and a terrible tragedy in the history of the pioneers.

Growing up in a Mexican household I was able to relate to this story. The traditions and culture shock a girl has to live with is told in a very sensitive and funny way. The main character is complicated and although at the beginning hard to swallow towards the end you feel for her. I really enjoyed this book..⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is the story of Mary Anning, a young woman in the 1800‘s, who at the age of 16 discovered a fossilized ichthyosaur skeleton and although she never received a proper college education, became the worlds first paleontologist and most respected female fossil hunter ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This long 600 page novel is about heroines, botany, the historical discovery of science, philosophy, love triangles, lust, exploration, adventurous journeys and interesting characters. I love historical fiction and I love botany so I enjoyed all the detailed descriptions. In some parts I felt I was reading a science textbook. Overall I enjoyed it and found the research the author did to put this book together simply incredible. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

AmyG I was so surprised by this book. I loved it. 1mo
NenaB It was amazing! I expected a historical romance type of book and I got a world of knowledge in botany and early science 1mo

The Wonder | Emma Donoghue

This novel inspired by the fasting girls of Europe and North America who claimed to go for long stretches of time without food. This story is all historical fiction and a bit gothic also very heartbreaking a definite page turner. A19th century psychological thriller ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ same author as The Room

Promise of Stardust | Priscille Sibley

I really enjoyed this book. I found it touching and compassionate. A heart wrenching love story. There are a lot of moral dilemmas regarding life and death which would make this book perfect as a book club choice. Also from a medical point of view you can tell the author did great research. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Commonwealth | Ann Patchett

I liked this book...I didn‘t love it but I liked the way it was written. Lots of drama. This book is about two families that go through difficulties and tragedies. Talk about dysfunction..destruction and loyalty. It bothers you all the chaos the characters go through but sometimes that‘s life. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Black and Blue | Anna Quindlen

This book was inspiring and with the strong subject of domestic abuse and alcoholism. It was depressing to me but the author did a wonderful job putting a face on physical spousal abuse and perseverance. 🌟🌟🌟

Gingerbread: A Novel | Helen Oyeyemi
post image
Mehso-so

Ok I gave this book 3 stars. After reading the 1st chapter I realized I was lost. It was too quirky for me and although some parts were ok with great writing there were too many different timelines..magical realism..fairytales and multiple characters. I can say it was a unique book but just too complex for my taste. This is my opinion and I hope someone reads it and explains it to me.

Boy Erased: A Memoir | Garrard Conley
Mehso-so

Well to be honest I found this book to be sad...I did not agree with what the boy went through it was heartbreaking and harsh and for what? I don‘t want to spoil it for anyone. The book was well written but I did not agree with what went on. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

MicheleinPhilly I‘m reading this now and it is very difficult to get through. I just keep wanting to shake the parents like “He‘s gay, he‘s not a serial killer. Calm down.” 4mo
NenaB Exactly! He was born that way..you can‘t change him..the parents I mean there were gays way back in history why were the parents not accepting? Poor kid! 4mo

Finished Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield. It was such a magical story full of characters and romance and overall great storytelling. So magical it reminded me of Like Water for Chocolate or House of Spirits. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. My next book is Boy Erased..the movie is coming out soon with Nicole Kidman!
