Poet X | Elizabeth Acevedo

Every year in English class I dreaded the poetry unit. My hat is off to this author who can tell a heartfelt beautiful story in verse. I listened on audio and followed along in the book. Book 83 5⭐️-for making me enjoy poetry.

Tracyantoon Very excited to get my hands on this one. The only other books in verse I have read have all been 5 stars for me. 1y

Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite authors. I am slowly making my way through her back list. This one features a newly divorced woman who goes home to help her family‘s failing restaurant. Just when I thought I knew where this was going I was pulled in a different direction. Loved it! 4⭐️book 79

Tracyantoon Ashamed to admit I haven‘t read any from her yet but I have lots on my TBR. What should I start with? 1y
TerriGreen @Tracyantoon my favorite is Winter Garden followed by The Nightingale both are historical. My favorite contemporary of hers is On Mystic Lake. All 5⭐️. 1y

I loved the style of this important graphic novel. I know this book is available in audio, but do yourself a favor and read an ebook or physical copy. It turned a little too political for me towards the end, but it is funny and touching. Book 71 4⭐️

Tracyantoon I have seen this on audio too. I will make sure I get a physical copy instead. Thanks! 1y

This character driven 22 hour audiobook covers the life span of a woman who becomes an expert in moss at the beginning of the nineteenth century. I know-sounds boring right? But it is not!! You are swept up in the historical time period, her family and friends and nature. Amazing book. Loved it. Book 67 4⭐️

Chelsea.Poole I read this several years ago and I still remember it. Loved it! 2y

The Identicals | Elin Hilderbrand
post image
Pickpick

I love Hilderbrand‘s books as they tend to be a little deeper then a cozy romance. They focus on family dynamics with a side of romance. This one is about twins with mommy issues. I loved that this story takes place not only on Nantucket as per usual but also Martha‘s Vineyard. Perfect beach read.🏝 Book 61 4⭐️

Tracyantoon I read this one last year I think and really liked it! I have an older one of her books on my shelf I got from you years ago that I need to read. Enjoy her style. 2y

Toes in the sand and a book in my hand. 🏝This book surprised me. I was not expecting a deserted island story from that cover. I enjoyed the relationship between the survivors with a 14 year age difference. A lovely beach read, just don‘t read it on a plane! Book 58 4⭐️

This humorous 3 volume graphic novel follows a species of crab that can only travel in one direction. We watch as they evolve and learn to turn!! They face discourse in their ranks and fight some enemies. Cute drawings. Loved the human characters too. I did feel some of the humor may have been lost in the translation though. Books 55, 62, 65 3⭐️

Tracyantoon Crabs! 🦀 never heard of this one till you started it. Love a good natureific graphic novel. 2y

I have trouble reading in a moving car. So when faced with a 10 hour car ride I decided to try an audiobook with a physical book. I could follow along and just look up to watch the world go by when I felt woozy. I certainly chose the right book for that. The full cast was amazing. Book 56 4⭐️

Tracyantoon I want to do the same thing. Just waiting for the library fairy to clear out a hold so I can add the audiobook to my holds list. 3 hold limit is tough! 2y

Informative graphic memoir by George Takei of Star Trek fame. I loved George‘s innocent childhood memories of living in the Japanese internment camps.

The premise really drew me in. However, there was lots of character back stories rather than crime investigation. I still really enjoyed it. I read these on Hoopla.

Another one of my challenges this year is to read one book from each author that I have 3 or more books on my TBR. If I keep adding their books to my list I need to start reading them. This one features a modern story of a woman who receives a painting of her grandma with a strange note and a WWII German soldier who is at a POW camp in the US. This one was emotional. Looking forward to her other books! 4⭐️ book 34
