Part of Your World | Abby Jimenez

I loved everything about this book. I devoured it in a day. The hero is amazing (thank you Abby Jiminez for writing men who are awesome because they do exist) and the heroine is strong and someone I rooted for 100%. The kind of couple and story that was true romance in my opinion. New fave of 2024. ❤️

I really liked this book. LOVED Poppy and Alex and their friendship that leads to love. My only complaint was it was a little too long. 50 pages shorter maybe? 😬

This was a good, fast paced whodunit. I didn't have any idea who the murder was until the end. It's pretty gritty though and addresses abuse so - not for everyone.

I read this for book club and enjoyed it. Being in Molly's mind was certainly interesting but I will say I got to the end and went "wait...what?" I'm still processing how I feel about the ending, but I liked the writing and would read this author again. ?

A Man Called Ove: A Novel | Fredrik Backman
post image
Pickpick

This one was tough to get into. I got to about 150 pages and felt that it was all a grumpy older man with not much explanation as to why. I almost gave up on it but I'm glad I didn't. The writing is truly lovely and as soon as other characters came in and there was more given about Ove and why he was the way he was, there was humor and the story was endearing.

Get Lucky: A Novel | Katherine Center
post image
Pickpick

I do so love Katherine Center's writing. But much like Happiness For Beginners, this one was much less romance and more young woman on a journey. Which I liked! This one was sister focused with a super interesting twist. So I liked this a lot, just didn't love because her brilliance (and my favorite part of her writing) is dialogue with a hero and heroine. ❤️

I listened to this on audio and it was fantastic. What a lovely behind the scenes view of a true classic. Having other actors involved in the film, as well as Rob Reiner and William Goldman, popping in to share their memories made it that much more delightful. ❤️

I truly hate to not finish a book, and after LOVING Holiday Romance and Snowed In, I was thoroughly bummed to get halfway through this one and call it a bail. 😐 I just could not get myself to like the MC. I also couldn't fully grasp her reasons for being home in Ireland. #sadtogobutimust

The Good Part | Sophie Cousens
post image
Pickpick

I lied. I said Holiday Romance was my favorite book of 2023 but this one is-I LOVED IT! So many emotions, life questions...fascinating! The MC wishes herself from 26 to 42. And I like how the author didn't pit one version of the main character's life against the other. It was more of her seeing she didn't fully appreciate what she DID have in her 20's. She sees that there's a "good part" to all phases of life. She just needs to look for them.

This was a fun, quick read. The writing style of emails, texts, and group chats isn't normally my favorite, but worked well with this story and was done well. I found the humor of the chats between everyone more dominant than the mystery, but since I laughed out loud a few times I considered it a cute, enjoyable read. 🤓

I read this for my book club and loved it! Since it's Patterson I expected a mystery or crime story but it's really a sweet holiday story of family and a crazy way the magic of Christmas is brought back into their lives. There was a bit of mystery to it, and I even had vibes of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle (anyone remember her? 🙋🏻‍♀️). Overall just a pleasant, fun, holiday read. 🤓 #holidaybook #cutestory 🎄

I tried. I tried so hard. I gave it 160 pages. 🙈 And I WANTED to LOVE it. The author seems lovely - I adored her author's note. The writing is great. It was just...sloooow. The mystery moved slow. The relationships between the women moved slow. I couldn't slog through anymore. An unpopular opinion, I'm sure. And I'm sad about that! ☹️ But I DNF. #sadtoleave #dnf

My mom and I have a rule - give a book 100 pages before bailing. I made it to 100. And bailed. And I hate to bail on books. I do. I know reviews say it starts slow but... I just don't have any interest anymore. #sorrybutgottago

BarkingMadRead I loved this, but it definitely took some down. I almost nailed a couple of times. I‘m a firm believer that you should never read something you don‘t love, so i totally get your bail! A friend recommended it, so i was stuck 🤣 8mo

This was a really cute story with a librarian, a Sheriff, and a small town all trying to "help" him solve a case. I liked this one better than the first in the series. Mainly because it wasn't written in first person so you got to be in his head as well as hers. I prefer that. I felt the first half was better than the second, but it's a sweet and cozy romance which is my thing so I stuck with it. ❤️ #romance #sweetromance
