Nine Perfect Strangers | Liane Moriarty

I have been in a major book slump lately starting with The Power that I will get back to but dnf'd for now. I am super excited to read Nine Perfect Strangers because I believe this will spin me right out of this awful situation!

Something in the Water: A Novel | Catherine Steadman

I almost ditched this book twice. I thought I was in a reading slump but this was the contributing factor. The characters weren't likeable, their actions made no sense and your questions aren't answered at the end.

Ibwanted to love this book because the summary screamed potential. I found it good but not great. There was alot to unpack in this story with all the complex storylines but felt like none of them got the full attention they deserved.

KateFulfordAuthor If you need another recommendation, may I point you to my People‘s Book Prize nominated debut? Sassy female narrative, laugh out dialogue and a pacy plot. Check the link in the bio for 2 free chapters, reviews and more. 1y

I was really psyched to read this before it came out. The story line was ok but it was so choppy that I found myself wondering if I skipped pages every once in awhile because I didn't follow very well. I did read it all but I don't recommend it.

This book was just a tragedy from beginning to the soul crushing middle and the end that implies everything will be fine but really leaves you with a deserted feeling. The end angered me for so many reasons.

The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah

This book was a roller coaster of emotions. I ran the gamut of emotions! It was easy to really get into their characters and feel what they felt whether it was the character or the setting of Alaska! It is hard to write a proper review without giving up too much. It is a solid 4 🌟 story.

Thus was yet another historical fiction piece that engaged me the whole way through. I found myself invested in the main character Magda. I cheered her on through the uplifting parts and sat reading anxiously through the horrific ones.

The build up was slower than I would like but I see why it had to be. There were lumps in my throat through the last half easily. I am not sure how I feel about the ending because I didn't feel like it was an ending. Hoping for more!

The Last Mrs. Parrish | Liv Constantine

This book had alot of the twists of a good thriller. The plot was very obvious unfortunately however, it entertained me along the way.

An American Marriage | Tayari Jones

This had a lot of thinking, feeling and inner turmoil. The characters were all mostly sympathetic but something was lacking and I can't pin point what that looks like. It may drive me crazy. 3 🌟

Bookdragon69 I feel the exact same way. I gave it a so-so too. 2y

This was a good book. At first it was a bit confusing when she was introducing characters and points of you but it kept you interested enough to find out.

I wanted to like this based on all the wonderful reviews but I have taken a week to get to 22% and usually I am two books in at the end of the week. I feel asleep after a few pages each time. I may try again one day but today isn't that day!

I enjoyed every aspect of this book. I got so caught up in the characters and was genuinely happy for them. It is historical fiction and though I was sad as hell that every character's story wasn't tied with a neat bow, I was simultaneously relieved that it wasn't. 4 🌟

This was better than I thought it would be. I heard a lot of bad things and saw 1 or 2 🌟 reviews but I read it in a day.... On my cruise to boot. It is a good book to read on vacation.

The Marriage Lie | Kimberly Belle

This was a thriller and a half. Even if I suspected certain characters, I couldn't narrow down their involvement. There was even an audible gasp made.

I thought it was a good book. I didn't love it and rave about it like a few others but I definitely think it is worth the read. There were quite a few spots where I laughed out loud and actually quite a bit of words that I had to look up. The characters were definitely engaging.

Practical Magic | Alice Hoffman
Mehso-so

I am glad I read this book to get the full picture of the characters but preferred The Rules Of Magic alot more. Where I was completely absorbed by Jet and Frances and Vincent, it took awhile to get who Sally and Gillian were. I did enjoy the portrayal of the three generations of sisters.

This was so engaging right from the beginning. I was invested in all the characters' outcome so clearly the character development was on point. I will read Practical Magic now as I am not quite ready to say goodbye.

I didn't like this book. I am surprised I finished it to be honest but I had intense feelings that the end would reveal great things. I was wrong on all counts. I haven't given a novel two stars in a long time.

I feel like this will be insightful and worth reading in the end but the end feels so far away. Anyone have guiding aspirations that will help me reach the finish line?

I really enjoyed the rich character development and appreciated the strong women characters. I liked the ideas and actions they put forth that went against their norms, but found that history repeated itself in a way that was frustrating and hypocritical.

This was quite a downer without giving any real insight into the characters. Each character had their own chapter that centered around Hattie and left much to the imagination. The characters weren't developed nor were they relatable to me. I usually enjoy a character driven book but unfortunately not this one.

This book was just as great as her first book. It is funny and sad in parts but always relatable. I recommend both of her books!

The Wife Between Us | Sarah Pekkanen, Greer Hendricks

I don't quite know how I feel about the book. There are so many twists and turns that they end up confusing the reader. It comes together with a bow tied around everything but the end of a book seems to be the wrong time to get to appreciate it all.

This book was definitely better than the Netflix special. I would rather depend on my imagination as the book gave you enough to be engrossed. I was left with alot of feelings.

This book was consistently engaging. It had woman empowerment without saying so, it had romance and it had history. I love historical fiction as it reads like a novel but explores the effects history had on people rather than a textbook chain of events.
This is one of my two favorites of the year.

rather_be_reading heard this one was good 2y
angieinwonderland It is one of my favourites now. The other is The Nightingale by K. Hannah. Have you read that one? 2y
