Another read making it to the top of my recommendation list. An honest, well-written memoir that is eye opening and promotes a need for critical reflection. Now, time to tune into Maid on Netflix!

The Great Believers | Rebecca Makkai
post image
Pickpick

While not the most well-written or attention grabbing, The Great Believers sincerely tugged on my heart in more ways than one. A dual storyline jumping between Chicago and Paris covering the AIDS crisis in Chicago, love, family, grief, and loss. A slower read but one that is still very much worth it in my opinion. 3.5/5 stars for me 🌟

Louise Penny does it again. The Nature of the Beast ranks high up there as one of my favorites in the series. Excited to keep reading! 📖🤓

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟

I am so very torn. At first, I had nothing but positive and exciting thoughts. But somewhere in the middle, something changed and suddenly I felt as if the author was getting too crazy, trying to fit in too much, and dropping some completely unexpected bombs. Ultimately, I liked this one but felt the writing could have been executed in a more organized fashion.

wanderinglynn I felt the same. I thought she tried to cram too many issues in and then could only deal with them superficially. It lacked balance. (edited) 2mo
corireadslife @wanderinglynn lacked balance. Yes that is a great way to state it! 2mo

I am slightly, if not, completely obsessed with TJR. What a great read. I loved the dynamics of all Riva siblings and wish I could be sitting amongst them, feeling the family love that is so evident. My only complaint is that I had a small doubt of everything happening in that one, wild night but hey, I‘m definitely not a celebrity so what do I know lol

Rating: 3.5 🌟

I will preface this review with saying that this is not my usual genre so I have no way to gauge if it was amazing or not. That being said.. I didn‘t hate it! The first half was a little slow but at about 50% the book really picked up and had me listening, wanting to know how it would end. Overall, a good middle school, fantasy read!

I have been slowly working through No Visible Bruises for a handful of months now. A heavy read but so worth it!

Okay I have to admit that I switched from kindle book to audiobook after a few chapters because I wasn‘t in the “reading” mood. BUT THIS book right here is amazing and the narrator is fabulous. Hands down, one of my favorites this year. Highly recommend!

UGH my heart is literally gushing!! I thought I was picking up a book about unwanted family secrets riddled with Hollywood drama but instead I found a story of love, romance, family sacrifice, passion, and so much more. A true summer read that kept me up way past my bedtime with zero regrets. I cannot recommend enough!

Seriously!! So. Stinkin. Good. What a fun, light-hearted, comical read with a hint of romance in the air. I read through Dial A for Aunties in one day and don't regret a single moment. The family dynamic is truly hilarious and had me literally laughing out loud. The storyline is a little over the top but honestly I think that just adds to the fun! Plus, Nathan and Meddy are to die for! UGH.

Not the worst of the bunch but not the best in my opinion. Good opener with a few heart thumping moments spread throughout. That being said, I found the story to be a bit predictable and the friendship drama was repetitive. Trigger warning of sexual assault.

Rating: 3.5 Stars 🌟

First of all, this book needs to come with a giant trigger warning. Sensitive topics woven in the timeline that are necessary for the story but very intense to read. I enjoyed the character development and felt that the ending did a good job at tying everything together. Overall, not the best but not the worst.

I. AM. OBSESSED. People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry is a well-written, fast-paced romance that had me literally laughing out loud. I loved bouncing back and forth, reading through the evolving timeline to understand how Poppy and Alex ended up where they were. Their relationship was every bit of amazing that had my heart pumping, both with love and heartache. Highly recommend.
