A Place for Us: A Novel | Fatima Farheen Mirza

Pickpick

This book was slow for me in some parts, but overall I enjoyed it. It‘s the story of regular family just trying their best throughout the years. It‘s beautifully written and it‘s very touching in a sad way.

We decided to go to the bookstore and had the happy surprise of finding out there was a book signing. We met the author, she‘s absolutely lovely and her book sounds like it‘s going to be just the juiciest drama. #canadianauthor 🇨🇦 #debutnovel #familysaga

Too many people have recommended this one so here I go! 😁👍 ...

(Even though I know it‘s going to end on a terrible cliffhanger which will make me angry since the next book isn‘t out yet. But hey... ✌️😫)

I give this one a solid 3.5/5 🌟 I found some of the expressions of human compassion touching. I‘m glad I read it, it‘s a different one for me, the fiction/fantasy merge was well done.

Neverwhere | Neil Gaiman

Question:
I have a free audiobook and I can‘t choose!
#helpmeplease
Neverwhere narrated by Neil Gaiman?
Good Omens?
Pet Sematary narrated by Michael C Hall?
✌️😫 #thanks

aloslibrary @Literary_Siren thanks I‘m definitely doing Neverwhere, you and my friend Tracy convinced me. Thanks! 😊 1y
Literary_Siren @aloslibrary you‘re welcome! It‘s a good story. I didn‘t listen to it on audiobook. Even though I have the dramatized version. But I always lean toward audiobooks read by the author. And Neil Gaiman is an absolutely fantastic narrator. 1y

KarenUK I love the BBC dramatized version too.... but Neil Gaiman‘s narration is always fabulous 👍💕 1y
Redwritinghood Anything narrated by Neil Gaiman would have to be great. 1y

It was a very satisfying read. Not a feel good book, but a satisfying journey. I enjoyed that the main characters were women who defied traditional notions of femininity. It didn‘t change my life but it definitely kept me interested. 3.5/5 ⭐️
