I wasn‘t a fan of the narration and not really sure what I think of the book. I‘m glad it was short or I probably wouldn‘t have stuck with it.

Fantastic narration! Thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. It was even better because it was inspired by true events, based on the packhorse traveling library in the mountains of Kentucky during the Great Depression. I wasn‘t aware of the history, but a great read for all book lovers!!! I highly recommend the audio version.

Outfox | Sandra Brown
post image
Pickpick

Sandra Brown is a great storyteller. Her books keep you interested without lags and drags. This one did not disappoint. I thought the storyline was great and even liked the unexpected twist near the end. However, there were several typos that distracted me while I was reading. And, while her books always have a steamy romance in them I thought this one seemed to be a little more explicit than others. But a good solid pick for me!

I love Sandra Brown. I have most of her books in my library. This is a very early book first done under another pen name. I‘ve had it on my shelf for a while and finally just read it this weekend as a #birthdayguiltypleasure read. It took me back in time to the 80s. My reading tastes have evolved over the years as has her writing. I feel like I have grown with her thru the years. I‘m looking forward to reading her new book, Outfox, next weekend.

RenePenn This would‘ve been a Pick for me in the 80s. ❤️ 2mo

A Thousand Splendid Suns | Khaled Hosseini

This one had been on my TBR list for a while now. I‘m glad I finally got around to listening to it. It‘s a heavy, emotional read so it‘s time for something a little lighter.

Louise_Lulu I know, Khaled Hossein's books are emotional and captivating. I bought A Thousand Splendid Suns and Kite Runner but I've only read A Thousand Splendid Suns, you need a book of laughs to lift you out of that dump 3w

While the ending of this book left me saying hmm, I thought it was a great read. Parts of the book were fantastic. Other parts seemed to drag along. It reminds me that life is messy. Things aren‘t usually tied up in a nice tidy bow. Peoples choices carry consequences for themselves and the people they wrong. Endings aren‘t always what we chase after. But in all the messiness of life we can still find purpose and love.

I listened to the audio book. The bonus was it is author narrated. She has amazing passion for her platform/mission and I very much enjoyed listening to her on my way to work each morning. It was like having my very own motivational coach! I will miss the encouraging words coming through my speakers every morning. With that said, she has so much helpful information that I now intend to buy the book. It‘s one of those you want as a reference book.

marleed I listen to so many great books that I find purchasing my 5 stars the right thing to do! 4mo

I finished the audio version of this today. It‘s been awhile since I‘ve read a crime fiction. The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life. My only complaint is the retelling of the same events throughout the book. A new tidbit was added during each retelling but it seemed like a little too much of the same thing over and over again. But, all in all I really enjoyed the book!

I absolutely love the show This Is Us so I was interested in learning a little about Chrissy Metz. While her personal stories about growing up, hurdles she had to overcome and “paying her dues” before getting her big. break kept me interested, I was not really a fan of her writing. Glad I read it - she seems like a genuinely good hearted person.

I thought the characters never really fully developed. I felt a little disconnected. The storyline was good but it lacked depth to me. I did get a little teary in a couple of spots but it was a story that should‘ve taken me to full-on crying.

I bought this book series for my granddaughter and she is loving it so I thought I‘d at least read the first one to see what it is all about. First book was pretty good so I‘ll read book 2 at some point. I can see why it appeals to teen girls. My favorites as a teen were Barbara Cartland romances.

While some of it was a little bit predictable, I enjoyed the twists and surprises. It was a nice change up from the last emotional roller coaster book I read. Not too intense, but enough so to keep my interest and curiosity going.
