My first Lisa See book for #AuthorAMonth. While the story started off quite promising, a dead man found beneath an ice skating rink, there were parts of the story where I felt that the flow of the story was thrown off. Despite this, I enjoyed the book for the most part and may read the next book in the series.

Animal Dreams | Barbara Kingsolver

While I didn‘t love this Kingsolver as much as The Lacuna, it was still an interesting book and showed off Kingsolver‘s early writing style. There were some points in the story where I found myself missing that the timeline had switched from past to present and vice versa, but otherwise and interesting story. #AuthorAMonth

Today‘s move went rather well. The movers got all my heavy items (piano, bookshelves) moved with relative ease. The boyfriend decided that I should have my own library/reading room. Still have more books to bring over, and need to hang my literary pictures, but the library room is coming along. #personallibrary

The Lacuna | Barbara Kingsolver

I really enjoyed this historical fiction book not only for the decades it covered but also because of the inclusion of so many well known historical figures like Diego Rivera and Frida whom the main character was friends with as well as for the mention of Zelda Fitzgerald and her death. I love that Kingsolver included even the darker aspects of US history like the Japanese internment. #AuthorAMonth

Soubhiville I‘ve always been drawn to this one because of the name and cover. Your review tells me I definitely should pick it up. (edited) 4mo
Skygoddess1 @Soubhiville This was my first Kingsolver, I listened to it on audio while packing and found that the story held my attention the entire time and helped to make the packing more bearable 4mo
Soubhiville Are you moving? 4mo
Soubhiville Ah I just read your previous post. Best of luck with that! I hope it all goes smoothly. Moving is so much work! But also how exciting for you! 4mo
Skygoddess1 @Soubhiville Yes, I‘m looking forward to moving in with my boyfriend, but man how I hate the process of moving. The movers come today for all my heavy furniture, like my piano and bookcases. Also the address I sent you is my new address. 4mo

January and the year starts off with me packing up my belongings (aka hundreds of books) and moving everything to my boyfriend‘s. With that in mind my goal is to hike at least 3 times this month, get in 8 yoga workouts. As for reading, I‘m going to aim low due to the move and shoot for 10 books. #BFC2022

I rather enjoyed this historical fiction both for the story of Roser and Victor living in exile in Chile following the rise of Franco, but also because I learned a lot about this part of Spanish history that I did not know. I loved the appearances by actual historical figures like Pablo Neruda. #AuthorAMonth #BookSpinBingo

Out of all the Allende books I‘ve managed to read this month, this was my favorite. I love the love stories of Alma and Ichimei and Irina and Seth. Such a beautiful story that takes a look at the Japanese-American internment, racism, and anti-miscegenation. A beautifully written story that pulled me in. #AuthorAMonth #BookSpinBingo

I enjoyed how big of a role Amanda and her fellow true crime sleuths played a part in piecing together the crimes and figuring out that they were committed by the same person. I thought I knew who the killer was until my prime suspect ended up dead, so definitely enjoyed that the killer remained a surprise for me. #AuthorAMonth #BookSpinBingo #WinterGames2021 #MistletoeManiacs +216 pts
