This Must Be the Place | Maggie O'Farrell

What a great #BeauTEAfulBooks selection!! Thank you, @debthmpsn @TerriGreen - this was one that was already on my TBR and I could hardly put it down! O‘Farrell does an amazing job with these characters and the different timelines all meld together so well! I loved every page!

H is for Hawk | Helen Macdonald

Mehso-so

This book came highly recommended to me, and I think that I may have had my expectations raised a bit too high... still, it‘s a fascinating and genuinely interesting mashup of memoir, goshawk raising and a lot of T. H. White‘s biography. Read by the author, this made for some good distraction while cleaning for Memorial Day company (and some #AudioColoring too!)

The Grand Dark | Richard Kadrey
post image
Pickpick

I‘ve been a fan of Kadrey‘s since reading Sandman Slim in 2010. This standalone fantasy novel spends a lot of time world-building which impacts the pacing, but there‘s plenty of action & excitement! It‘s set in, as the title suggests, a dark city reeling from a Great War (parallels can be drawn to our own history here). Largo receives an unexpected promotion as the head courier of the city he knows so well changing his life. Thanks, #NetGalley!

The Ditch | Herman Koch
post image
Mehso-so

This is the third book of Koch‘s that I‘ve read, but, unfortunately it‘s probably my least favorite. The mayor of Amsterdam narrates here, but he‘s an odd man... and convinced that his non-Dutch wife is cheating on him. There are lengthy side tangents, odd subplots and an ending that‘s too vague to be satisfying. But, I think discussion groups will find this to provide a lot of fodder! Thanks, #NetGalley!

erzascarletbookgasm I‘ve read two of his books and liked them. Always provide lots of debate with unlikeable characters. Curious about this one. 6d
TorieStorieS @erzascarletbookgasm I loved Dear Mr. M- but this one will definitely be another good conversation starter! 6d

Sandstorm | James Rollins
post image
Pickpick

It‘s been a very long time since I last picked up a book by Rollins- but this month‘s #ReadAroundTheWorld challenge country is #Oman and I was delighted to see this title on a list of books set there since I had started collecting the Sigma Force series years earlier in preparation to binge it! So this fun thriller fulfills the challenge and marks my 40th #MtTBRChallenge read! It‘s a bit far-fetched, but exciting nonetheless!

Secrets She Left Behind | Diane Chamberlain
post image
Pickpick

Well, I think this sequel to Before The Storm is even stronger!! All of the same characters are back- though a year has passed since the events of the first book. This one focuses more on the Westons but the Lockwoods are still main characters too as the book covers multiple perspectives. I both listened and read it- #unputdownable for sure, as this ended up taking up my whole evening- in the most pleasant way!! 😄

Before the Storm | Diane Chamberlain

Diane Chamberlain‘s books are always a guaranteed good time- whether reading or listening to do some much needed #AudioCleaning (followed by some relaxing #AudioColoring) - since discovering her, I have tried to slowly parse out her backlog... this one is the first in a duology so I‘m excited to have a little bit of a binge! Set in #NorthCarolina, this family drama surrounds a church fire that acts as a catalyst for secrets to be revealed!

This #BookAboutBooks is between “so-so” and “pick” for me, but the subject matter made me round up! 😊 Thanks, #NetGalley - this book is a collection of little anecdotes about writers, books, publishing and the lives of authors. It‘s more UK-centric, but there‘s some efforts to include facts from around the world of writing. I wish that there was a clearer age for the audience and it felt a bit more up to date (the book lists are all quite dated).

When We Were Lost | Kevin Wignall
post image
Pickpick

This YA thriller is a survival story post plane crash in the jungle- there are plenty of natural dangers, compounded with the drama that the group of survivors are all in high school! It‘s a #OneSittingRead from James Patterson‘s publishing imprint. It‘s lacking some supporting detail that would make this more realistic but doesn‘t want for page-turning excitement! #Bookwear

How Not to Die Alone | Richard Roper

I really enjoyed my May #BOTM pick! It‘s pretty hilarious- but also deeply sad at times, too. And though Andrew may not have been shouting #SaveMe in words, he manages to save himself here in a story that is charming, funny and heartfelt. It‘s an impressive debut and I definitely am curious to see what Roper will write next! #MayMovieMagic

Clover Blue | Eldonna Edwards
post image
Pickpick

I‘ve been looking forward to reading more from Edwards since finishing her debut novel, This I Know, last year. I was thrilled to have my #NetGalley request approved! Spanning thirty years, this coming-of-age novel opens with a birth in the Northern California Saffron Freedom Community that incites the titular character to start asking questions about his own identity. Heartbreaking, completely wonderful and unputdownable! Can‘t wait for more!

Waisted: A Novel | Randy Susan Meyers
post image
Pickpick

I thoroughly enjoyed Meyers‘ debut novel so I was thrilled to have received this ARC through #NetGalley! This is a discussion starter of a book, for sure! I think that anyone who has felt less than perfect when looking in a mirror or on the scale will find something to identify with here. The second half is stronger than the first (it gets a little repetitive and isn‘t as fresh) but the character arcs work well and that‘s the strongest part.

I‘ve been looking forward to listening to Feeney‘s second novel since my book club read her first book! This is another twisty thriller (though I did see some of the plot‘s turns coming!) that is well-performed on the audio version. There are some really horrifying moments- so beware! #AudioColoring

Drawing Home | Jamie Brenner

This is my second experience with Brenner‘s beach reads and this one set in Sag Harbor is light-hearted and fast-paced. Great for a weekend trip, I enjoyed this despite the predictable plot. It‘s almost sweetly satisfying and great for a quick escape into imagining what you would do with a windfall like Penny‘s!

Romanov | Nadine Brandes

I‘m not really sure when my interest in the Romanovs began, but I‘ve been looking forward to this one since I heard about it! This YA novel tells the post-abdication story from Anastasia‘s POV. Nastya also has an interest in magic as she works to do everything she can to save her family. The pacing is a little uneven, and the characters may seem a bit too good to be true, but the research is evident. Thanks to #NetGalley for my copy!

This ninth addition to the D. D. Warren series isn‘t the best in the series... the ending though unexpected was actually pretty depressing and though I was thrilled to see Florence again, even she wasn‘t quite enough to make me love this... But, it‘s certainly a fast-paced read and one that I still had fun reading!

If I had been less than impressed by the seventh book in the D. D. Warren series, then this eighth book more than made up for that! I thoroughly enjoyed every page!

My #BookBinge of the D. D. Warren series continues with this 7th installment. So far, this is probably my least favorite of the series... it‘s not a bad book (twisty plot, exciting events), but the new characters don‘t feel quite as fresh or original and D. D. grated on my nerves a bit here...

This novella is a nice transition that actually covers some key points for D. D. Warren- I was hoping that there had been a little bit more coverage of her conversation that was hinted at in the end of the fifth book, but this opens up about six months later. Still, though the novella format isn‘t my favorite and thus feels almost like the Halloween special Scooby Doo episode of the series, I am glad that I gave it a listen! #AudioColoring

This fourth book in the D. D. Warren series is the most emotionally taxing so far! #Saved or maybe spared is a better word, one of the main perspectives is a psych nurse for the pediatric ward who is the sole survivor of her family‘s annihilation... as the 25th anniversary approaches, more families are turning up dead... And finally, in my re-reading of this series, I sort of remembered it!! #SpringIntoReading

This is the April selection for my book club... and though I voted for this one, I ended up not really enjoying this #Audiobook as much as I had hoped! It‘s well-researched and certainly detailed but I never felt the characters really come to life or feel genuinely connected to them. Alva led a fascinating life, but I wish the focus here had been less on romance and high society... #AudioColoring

I have been a fan of McMahon‘s for many years now, so I‘m especially thankful to #NetGalley for the chance to read this one a bit early! It‘s an atmospheric and spooky read told in alternating perspectives with interesting characters- all revolving around the local legacy of Hattie. Some aspects of the plot are easier to see coming but it doesn‘t detract from this fun and spooky read!

The Rosie Result | Graeme Simsion

After thoroughly enjoying the first two installments of this trilogy, I was thrilled to be approved by #NetGalley for the third “Rosie” book! But the focus here isn‘t on Don and Rosie‘s relationship - instead on their now 11 year old son, Hudson, who seems to really take after his father. This causes problems in his new school... But though this is a quick read, it was missing a lot of the charm and humor of the earlier books... disappointing!

This was one of my #MostAnticipated2019Reads - but I frankly struggled finishing it! I found the pacing to be slow, the characters to be not only unlikable but also unconvincing in their motivations and the plot to gloss over what seemed like the more interesting parts! I am not sure if this is a case of going in with too high of hopes, but I very nearly bailed on this #WWI novel! Maybe someone else will find a connection to these characters!

I thoroughly enjoyed this #nonfiction look into the world of service dogs- focusing mainly on psych services. It‘s an uplifting (though at other times rather tearjerking) listen that made me even more thankful for dogs in general! It‘s a fascinating listen read by the author herself- great for #AudioColoring but even better for #AudioWalking with a four-legged friend!

I absolutely loved this! I laughed, I cried... I didn‘t want it to end (but I hastened its ending by staying up way too late!). Set in 1992-94, this book is both meticulously and yet effortlessly researched, culminating in a biopic of Jackie O‘s time as an editor through the lens of a new author working not only on his semi-autobiographical novel but also in his own relationships. This is my first experience with the author, but won‘t be my last!
