Love my new Dune Exclusive Edition!❤
Good solid story about first love, mental illness, family, small town, bullying, and racism. The mystery about what's happening at that creepy house pretty much what pulled me in and with the added local tragedy mystery, completely engrossed all my attention.
The author's writing style is a bit different and I can see why it might not be enjoyable for some, but it was a fun and refreshing reprieve from those that contain emotionally charged storylines.
Kinda reminds me of Forrest Gump but with a 100-year old man instead. It has a bit of humor in it. Curious how it will turn out.
I'm enjoying this book very much. Primarily, because the focus is on the victims' lives and experiences rather than on the infamous Jack the Ripper. Secondly, the added historical narrative of the era paints a clearer picture on how vulnerable these women must have been.
Beautiful book and a nice graphic adaptation of some of his works.
Read this in less than a day. I got hooked the moment I started. Describes the story of a young deaf girl and how she struggles against discrimination and how she is countlessly misunderstood by the hearing community. I enjoyed this very much. I highly recommend it.
Love this series. I feel sad that it's over. It's not perfect but I enjoyed all the adventures and challenges Clare and Dorran endured. The series consisted of different elements including mystery, thriller, suspense, romance (clean), melancholy, humor, action, and drama. And compared to other apocalyptic stories, I was grateful that Darcy Coates included a solution with a hopeful note in the end.
1. Keep but donate the ones I have doubles or didn't enjoy.
2. Depends on the book but usually I can read an average of about 400 pages/day
3. Tagged. I rarely bail/dnf books but I tried reading this one a number of times but I could never get into it.
I've been cooking with this cookbook daily. I would've added more pics but then it would've been too small to see.
This is a great whole plant-based cookbook. It provides colorful pictures for each recipes, the ingredients are easy to find, and it tasted phenomenal. Even my daughter who isn't a plant-based eater is enjoying them. 👍
Tried a couple recipes from this cookbook and it's pretty good 👍
I just got this book and the recipes looks delish. I think today I'll go pass by the store and buy the ingredients.
Quick fun read. I love the quirky characters and the humor in some scenes. I found that there were some similarities between Harry and Lennox from The Bookshop on the Corner. It was an easy lighthearted story. But I think all the characters could've been more developed and the ending between Katie and Harry seemed forced, their relationship could've been more developed too.
Boyd captured the story of Eliza remarkably well. It was based on historical documents and letters and after reading this I admire her strong-will, perseverance, and pure heart. She knew what she wanted and she overcame societal expectations & gender biases. She was clearly a woman ahead of her time. The history was inspiring and I was keened to look it up.
It was also a fun trivia to learn that the state flag of SC is blue because of indigo.
I didn't expect to finish this in one day but I did. After reading that ending, I feel as if my heart just split apart. I love the story but I couldn't stop asking the hows, whys, and whats. As I read I seemed to keep adding on to a stack of questions. Lastly, I was confused about the main character's undetermined gender. Overall the plot was intriguing and captivating.
I received an email from UPS saying I had a package arriving and I wondered what could it be since I'm not expecting any package. I was surprised to see it was this ARC !
According to the publisher's date this book was published on 2011, so I wonder why are they sending out ARCs of this now 🤔
