I gave this a good 100 pages but I couldn‘t finish it. It wasn‘t cohesive for me to continue. I am probably in the minority‘s here 😟
I have had this on my radar for quite some time. I was enthralled with it. Set in NYC, with different decades jumping around, it was a well rounded novel with great characters. It delves into the HIV/AIDS epidemic the city went thru & gives a history which I appreciated as well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I want to say this was above so so but not super great! I had issues with it such as the supernatural aspect of it but I couldn‘t put it down one sec cause I just felt horrible for the kids & wanted after every chapter for them to be OK!! Jeez what a horrible person their mom was! She pissed me off totally!
This was an enchanting stroll! Recently there have been some heavy life situations I needed to get my mind off & this book did it! Lillian takes a walk down memory lane literally, she's so witty I loved every piece off her! You felt like you were in Manhattan with her! So good!
I was enthralled with this book! I liked the sense of magical realism thru out, I thought the writing was great, at one point there was too many lines to keep marking! No it's not for everyone since it involves cruelty to children but i found it was a book of love, hope, survival! #justread #Januaryreads #read #
I can't put this down!!!
Waited patiently 3 mths for my library hold to be available & started it the day Mr. Whitehead got his honor of winning the National Book Award! Hands down a modern classic with a great heroine Cora-oh Cora! Beautifully heartbreaking journey of a runaway slave escaping on an "actual" Underground Railroad & being chased by a slave catcher, the suspense was unreal & gut wrenching! 4 ?
Finished this in two sittings..this was beautiful! Was immersed in the lives of Aubrey, Nadia and Luke. The writing was just mind blowing from a debut author. I'm one in the LOVE this book gang!
This is me...hugging this book! Guys I just ADORED this book! It's a simple plot, not much drama but the writing & the characters! Count Rostov will go down as one of my fav literary character's-he made his confined situation, that could of been a slow suicide, into something wonderful, doable, hopeful!
Finished my reread and it was just as great as it was when I was a kid! I love a story of perseverance thru so much hardship and making the best of what you have even if it is so little...❤️❤️❤️
Holy cow was that a ride! Just finished this in one sitting-page turning thriller completely had me at the first few pages, I think cause I've been watching too many JonBenet docs, I was trying to compare notes but this story with the twists left me stumped to the end!
