4⭐️. Totally sucks you in and takes you on a ride. Really enjoyed this one . It was a fun pick for #LMPBC

3.5⭐️ What did I just read? I went into this book knowing nothing but that there is a ghost. Ended up being the weirdest reading experience I‘ve had in a while. Fast paced and entertaining enough to suck you in but with characters and situations that have you questioning whether or not you like them.

Wall of Winnipeg and Me | Mariana Zapata

3.5⭐️ Decided to try another Zapata book as I loved Kulti. I didn‘t like this one as much, probably because the first half seemed like all the main character did was complain. I stuck with it though and ended up enjoying it. The characters grow and the football background is fun. I did like Zac. He made me smile every time he showed up in the book.

Secret Santa | Andrew Shaffer

4⭐️. This little book was fun. I wanted to end the year with something easy and fun and this delivered. A secret Santa gift turns out to have supernatural powers. The book had humor, pop culture references and just enough horror to make me read it cover to cover in just a couple hours.

4.5⭐️ I really enjoyed this book. The themes of identity and figuring out who you are hit hard. Great #LMPBC pick as it sparks many discussions. I hope you ladies enjoy this as much as I did.

3⭐️ interesting history of the women within the Pinkerton agency. I found some of the stories to be quite intriguing (particularly the history of the submarines and ironclads during the civil war.) Read a lot like a history textbook so got a bit dry in parts.

4⭐️. What a weird and wonderful little book. Although I had no clue what was happening for the first third of the book, I was able to relate to the main character in being thrown into a world where nothing makes sense anymore. Can‘t wait to find out more about these boys and girls and what happened when they went through the doors.

4⭐️. I enjoyed this story about the daughters of classic scientists like Frankenstein, Dr Moreau, and Dr. Jekyl. Mix in some Sherlock Holmes and you‘ve got an interesting mystery full of cameos from classic stories.

3⭐️ Cute story but not anything great. Listened to the audiobook and wasn‘t feeling the narrator‘s voice so had a hard time staying focused. Thought the fibromyalgia storyline was handled well.

RedxoHearts I will have to recheck this one out. It's refreshing when they actually do a good job handling the topic of Fibro or other chronic illness. 2mo

3.5⭐️ Entertaining story about what happens when the lights go off at an IKEA like store. I loved the references to pop culture ( especially naming EMF detectors after ghost hunting show hosts). Definitely had its gory moments but this was a good read for Halloween time.

Anxious People: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

4⭐️ I enjoyed this book so much. It is the first one by Backman that I have read but I am definitely going to read more. As the author says, this is a story about idiots but it is so much more than that. Hilarious and deeply poignant at times.

3⭐️. Just okay. I could not connect with any of the characters and was just annoyed by the party scenes. Give me more surfing and more family and I think I would have liked it better. The book did make me laugh out loud a couple times though so that‘s good. Not sure if this is an author for me as this is the second book of hers that I found to be just ok.

4.5⭐️ What a beautiful book. I went into this trying to keep my expectations low since it has been such a hyped book. The first 100 pages were slow for me but then these kids captured my heart and the rest of the book few by. Beautiful reminders of self worth and looking more than skin deep to find out who a person is are sprinkled throughout this book. I ended up loving Linus and Lucy became my favorite child. Highly recommend.

Grown | Tiffany D. Jackson

4⭐️ Flew through this book in one night. Jackson is a great storyteller. I liked that this book touches on different themes like victim blaming, black vs white , and the tendency to not believe women. I have been thinking about this story all day and have a feeling it‘s going to hold on to me just a little longer. I recommend this book but lots of triggers.This was the first book I‘ve ever read that had an actual trigger warning in the book.

Kill Creek | Scott Thomas

3.5 ⭐️. This book takes you for a ride. What starts out slow and almost philosophical turns into a fast paced tale after 4 authors spend the night inside the house on Kill Creek. With a big focus on the power of storytelling this book was a quick and entertaining read for me.

3 ⭐️ A teenage girl gets taken while on vacation with her family. The book deals with the emotions and aftermath of her disappearance. A slow start and a writing style that wasn‘t my favorite made this a slower read for me but the last 100 pages flew by. this was #LMPBC pick and I just put it in the mail today. Should get to you by Friday @magyklyXdelish

Lauranahe I agree, the last 100 pages were the best. Made it worth it to get to that point. 12mo

5⭐️ I was given this book for Christmas and told to read it to my baby as he grows up. We read it for the first time tonight and although the message currently goes over his head( only 4 months old), it didn‘t go over mine. This book has such wisdom and some of what mole and horse teach the boy hit home with me too. I highly recommend and will read over and over again as my son grows up.

The Deep | Rivers Solomon, Daveed Diggs, William Hutson, Jonathan Snipes

Pickpick

4.5⭐️ I don‘t know how to sum up my feelings for this book adequately except to say that it is a heavy, thought provoking look at the importance of history and belonging. Carrying the weight of a painful history and the struggle to not lose your identity in that pain but to share and use it to push forward. This short book captured my attention with the premise of mermaids but kept me reading with its message

This was one of our #LMPBC picks and although it wasn‘t my favorite, It definitely brought out my emotions and gave me a lot to think about. I laughed, I cried, and I became furious at characters. Even though I hated parts of the story, it‘s a story I can‘t stop thinking about for better or worse. Curious what the rest of you will think

4⭐️ Finally finished reading/listening to this book. Overall enjoyed the story and the idea of killer mermaids. I liked the heavy science focus and the inclusion of three characters who spoke sign language. The amount of chapters made it easy to get confused as to who was who, especially when listening to the audiobook. Felt like the big reveal at the end could have been done better but overall a good read.
