Life has been hectic & I haven't had much reading time, so today all I wanted for Mother's day was my hammock and my book. I found this paragraph fitting for today. ❤ Happy Mother's day Littens!

I've been listening to this one with my 13yr old and it's taken us a while to finish, but that isn't because the book wasn't compelling. Our time in the car together these last few months was rare. We were both on pins and needles as the main characters finally made it to winter conclave. This was an awesome ride of a book. ☆☆☆☆☆ I've already bought book 2!

I love listening to books narrated by the author. This one was a win for me ☆☆☆☆☆. I didn't know who Rachel Hollis was before this book, but man I'd sure like to hang out with her.

Well it took me a while. I've read mixed reviews, and I must agree that there was a significant slump in the middle of the book. By that point though I was already invested. This was a solid ☆☆☆ for me. Not bad, but not the heart pumping thriller I'd been after.

Spark of Light | Jodi Picoult
post image
Pickpick

This book took me a long time, much longer than most. I'm a huge fan of Picoult primarily for the fact that she explores topics most of us don't bring up in polite conversation. I have always been a staunch Pro Choice supporter. I visited Planned Parenthood regularly in my teens and 20s for birth control and pelvic exams. This book took me out of my comfort zone. It forced me to look at things from all sorts of pov's. I give this ☆☆☆☆☆

dalma_st_paul Very true. It's all about reader expectation and satisfaction. Which is why it is a great summer read, but I don't think I'll reread it. Not like 5mo

This was a bit heavy for me. Painful, illuminating, and terrifying. Being the parent of a teen is hard and words like these can stop you cold. Of course any book that gets this type of reaction is a ☆☆☆☆☆. It hurt so good.

Jensol77 This book is the 💣💣. I can think of all the names right now but I was so torn between both mothers of the baby. The birth mother had such a longing for her baby and the adopted mother wanted a baby so bad after so much defeat TTC. I changed alliances several times and on the end I just couldn't decide who I sided with 6mo

I can't say enough about this trilogy. Set in the mid 1800's this tale will take you on a wagon train (the Oregon Trail) from Georgia to the wilds of California in search of gold. Lee is a head strong "gifted" heroine who perseveres in spite of tragedy and living in a time in our history when women had no true rights. I just finished book 3 last night. What a ride. I highly recommend ? ?????

I love this series. Set in the early Gold Rush days of California this paranormal/historical fiction/YA book is perfect for me (a CA girl living in an old gold rush town) ♡ Let's see how this trilogy ends.

The only resolutions I make are reading resolutions.
📖 Read books I already own
📖 Buy used when I can't fight the urge
📖 Use the library for at least 3 books
📖 Read a few more non fiction

I enjoyed Legendary a bit more than the first book mostly because Tella is headstrong and adventurous. The addition of The Fates beefed up the magic and mystery I was worried wouldn't be there in book 2 since I knew all about the Game going in. Great sophomore to the series. Look at that cover!!!!😍👀 book 3 is due out in May.

Too Late | C Hoover

Verity by Colleen Hoover isn't yet it the database so I had to tag an older book. Verity! This is an indie published thriller, which is not the typical CoHo genre. I read it in 4 sittings. I had to....you will too. Reminds me of how I felt after reading Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. ☆☆☆☆☆ and since it's indie it's only $4.99 on Kindle.

Finishing this book brings me to the end of my 8 book adventure with some of the very best fictional friends a girl could ask for ❤. A series of considerable size is bound to emotionally wreck me because it... well it's the End. Sarah J. Maas grabbed me with the very first TOG book and has since made me invested in ACOTAR just as much. Excellent writing, Excellent characters ☆☆☆☆☆

Nute Wonderful review! I, too, have left fictional friends behind, because it's the end of the book/series. It can almost be called 'grieving ' and it takes a moment to get over. 7mo

I love this A Love Story series. They are each stand alone stories so you don't need to worry about a reading order & they are well written. If you get the chance to read anything written by Tracy Ewens do it! ☆☆☆☆☆ Really enjoyed the chemistry between Grady & Kate.
