Pretty Guilty Women | Gina Lamanna

Pickpick

Gina is one of my favorite authors! She‘s never disappointed me with a book yet! Everything she writes is truly magical! From drawing you in right from the beginning with a murder with 4 confessed killers! Keeping you guessing through out the whole book ‘who done it‘ and the awestruck reveal at just the perfect time! The characters felt like people you know and very relatable on many levels! 5 stars from me!

This book takes you on quite the adventure! I‘m typically a slow reader many times taking a week or two to finish a book...not the case here! I finished this one in 48hrs! I couldn‘t put it down! The cast of characters are not only likable but felt so real. The adventure that you go on with Livy is thrilling, breathtaking and daring! Definitely a 5 star rating from me!

I absolutely loved this book! First off I love all things theatre and old NYC! This novel was a beautiful mixture of both with a wonderful story of fierce friendship and how governmental paranoias can ruin lives and did during the post WWII era for the theatre world. A fabulous mixture of twist along with triumphs and loss made this a 5 star 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟 book for me! Definitely a must read!

Love love loved this book! 5 ordinary American citizens are recruited to become spies in Paris during WWII! You follow them from before they were recruited to several years later and this does not disappoint! One of my favorite WWII historical fictions of 2019! Definitely 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 from me! A historical fiction must read!

We started this book/course/plan last night with our church LifeGroup. So far it makes some really valid points and made us really look at our money/spending. It‘s definitely a change in thinking process because the word ‘budget‘ just sounds bad, but this puts a positive spin on things. We‘ve made our ‘zero-based budget‘ & will be ready to start this process when our checks hit the bank tomorrow! Hopefully this helps us! Extra money would be nice!

DavidDiamond We‘ve been doing his plan for a couple years now. Takes patience. Also, try their EveryDollar app...makes the whole budgeting thing a lot easier to accomplish. Good luck! 1mo
SassyBookworm @DavidDiamond thank you! We started on the app too! It really opened my eyes to things. It‘s gonna be stressful but I hope worth it! 1mo

I loved this second installment of this series. Such a fun twist on the classic Peter Pan. I love how the twist continue and the twisted world of Neverland continues to be such a scary wild place. Wendy is starting to grow into her own and find out who she truly is. I‘m so excited to continue on with the next book in this series!

I absolutely loved this conclusion to the Caraval series! It was as beautiful and magical as the first two books and I felt immersed back into the Caraval world. Although the Caraval game was not going on, I honestly didn‘t think it was needed. The story and conclusion were perfect for this trilogy, and it‘s on my top list of series! Most definitely 5 stars 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was a beautiful yet heartbreaking novel. It‘s goes between a few stories that eventually tie in together but mainly the past character Ines and current character of Olivia/Liv.

The Wartime Sisters: A Novel | Lynda Cohen Loigman
post image
Pickpick

This was a beautiful novel about the strained relationship between two sisters during WWII. Going back & forth between their childhood/adolescent memories to their current time of the 1940‘s. You also see the perspectives of two of their close friends & how their lives brought them to their place in the sisters lives. Parts will break your heart & others will have you smiling with pride. 5 starts for me 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was a wonderful novel! It‘s a much longer book than what I‘m used to so it took me a while but so worth it! The details the highs and lows for the characters and to find out the majority of them were real people...amazing! I am always amazed at the bravery of so many against such cruelty especially when their actions came with grave consequences. Overall a fabulous WWII historical fiction!

Really enjoyed this audiobook! What an interesting twist on the classic Peter Pan story. I loved how the focus was on Wendy and how little things here and there spoke true to the classic. It was such a different concept of Neverland not being a fun place but rather a place of fear, yet it worked well. Excited to start the next book in this trilogy!

So I still haven‘t felt 100% after my surgery last Friday. Only worked a 1/2 day yesterday and saw a doctor after work. She took some labwork (normal) and told me to stay home today and rest. So if I have to stay home I might as well snuggle with my baby Penny and read a good book right?!

Finished this wonderful book late last night. I wasn‘t sure that I would really like it as it didn‘t grab me right at first. But when it did I was hooked! Just a beautiful story set in WWII but not really about the war, more about the characters and how past issues can effect them throughout life and effect others. Beautifully written with characters you fall in love with. Great historical fiction!

I was hoping to already have this book finished but my minor surgery really messed me up. I‘ve never had trouble with anesthesia before but this time I was extremely sick coming out of it. To make matters worse my tongue had gotten stuck between the breathing tube & my teeth so my tongue is (still) swollen, it should be better soon. Hopefully now that the dizziness is mostly gone I can read a bit instead of sleeping all the time.

Mehso-so

This book was definitely not what I expected especially from the title. I really did enjoy it! I was looking for more what they spoke about in the end which was murder cases and the unfair treatment of blaming the victim as well as topics like rape culture. But it was more about the actual authors themselves than about the topic of murder. I did enjoy the book, but I think I would have enjoyed it much more if I was more aware of the actual topic.

On a Cold Dark Sea | Elizabeth Blackwell

This was a wonderful different perspective on the Titanic tragedy. This book took the perspectives of 3 women 1st class, 2nd class and 3rd class. The focus was more on how the events of that night changed their lives rather than the actual tragedy of the boat skinking being the main point. I loved how all three women were on the same life boat and how they stories all collided several years later.

This is a beautifully written novel. I literally could not put it down. Many books take me days even weeks to read...I read this in two days. Both the main characters Caroline and Celine were such wonderful characters to follow. You could feel their love, passion, heartache, confusion and fears come across the pages so clearly.

This is a wonderful historical fiction about Claude & Blanche Azuzello. Claude was the hotel manager for the Ritz Hotel in Paris before, during & after WWII. The story begins with the meeting of Claude & Blanche as their romance was kind of a whirl wind start. The story is told from each of their perspectives & I loved how you would seamlessly flow from each... Full review on Goodreads!

Really enjoyed the conclusion of this series! Still had a lot of good action and adventure that I‘ve come to expect from this series. Also it was wonderful ending to all the characters stories that you‘ve grown to know and love. So I was very satisfied with the ending and it just felt complete. Great series!

Wow! Just Wow! It‘s been a while since a read a book that was from the perspective of just one character, and it did not disappoint! Following Hanneke‘s story was just amazing! Everything made for a beautiful historical fiction, the love, the loss, the terrible war and the strength of those having to live through it. Absolutely loved this book!

This book (ATM) is my top 2019 read!!! Told from 3 different perspectives & yet as seamless as could be! I loved all the characters & the writing is so rich you almost become those characters & feel what they feel. This book has it all! Adventure, love, heartbreak, action & mystery. At times I wanted to jump through the pages & say ‘she‘s right under your nose!‘ most of the time where I was just anxious to see what happened next!

This is an EXTREMELY RARE sight! My oldest daughter unfortunately is not a reader (thanks accelerated reader 😒). But luckily she found a Stranger Things book at Book-A-Million today and I‘m hoping 🤞🏼she will love it!!

Sweetkokoro I hope she loves it! My daughter too is showing signs of not liking reading when she originally did like it. Once she was introduced the accelerated reading at school her interest took a nose dive, she hates falling the tests that go with the books. And half the ones she wants to read are not part of the lists of qualified books, It‘s rough. 6mo
SassyBookworm @jb72 exactly!!! And I will try anything to get her to love reading! @readordierachel I‘m crossing my fingers 🤞🏼! @Bookish_B thank you ❤️! 6mo
SassyBookworm @Sweetkokoro Alexa loved to read and be read to as a small child but the AR program killed it! She didn‘t like the books, she felt forced to read (I‘m the same way I don‘t like being forced), and she could easily read the 1pt books and make her quota. The high school has helped a little letting them choose books. But if she follows me it will be a while before she enjoys reading again. I was in my late 20s before I started to love to read again 6mo
Sweetkokoro Alanni is 10 & she loved being read to as well & enjoyed reading on her own. But she feels the same way as your daughter she feels forced to read & while she can pick what she wants the choices are undesirable. Her teacher doesn‘t allow them to gain points from grade levels below their appointed range and deletes points obtained by them, which makes Alanni super mad. I get the program but I feel it has the opposite effect on some kids. 6mo
Tamra I really wish it was open choice for students for so many reasons. 6mo
shellleigh33 My daughter is not a big reader either but she loves Stranger Things and graphic novel books. Graphic novels books don‘t get many points on AR tests though and this is very discouraging to her. 6mo
Paula3 AR has been proven to hinder readers. I hope she enjoys picking her own books and subject matter ♡ 6mo
SassyBookworm @Sweetkokoro wow! Deletes the points if they are below grade level! Goodness that‘s kind of harsh. I completely agree for many kids it has the opposite effect. I understand them wanting kids to read but when they are forced to read books they don‘t like, it just turns so many off of the joy of reading a book you love! 6mo
SassyBookworm @Tamra me too! I believe Alexa would lie to read more. Since in high school she was able to pick a book and found one she really liked. I‘m hoping this one she will as well. @shellleigh33 Alexa has found a few graphic novels but they aren‘t as popular around our area as many places. I‘m glad many parent are in the same boat as me with the AR struggles! @Paula3 it‘s sad they keep the program when hinders students. Thank you! She read 25p last nite 6mo
booksaremyfavorite My daughters were also like that due to AR. Thankfully now that they can read whatever they want they both love reading. 6mo
