Needless to say, I think we rarely value our freedom to move about uninhibitedly until that freedom is curtailed.

Beautiful words. Need I say more?

BookwormM I have just finished this and I loved it 4d
fictionaddictbooks @BookwormM I'm yet to meet someone who doesn't love this one 4d
Ericalambbrown I absolutely adored this book! I loved it enough that I burned an Audible credit on it so I could hear Mr Noah read it. I‘m so glad I did! His performance - especially the story with his blind great grandmother and him not wanting to venture to the outhouse - is extraordinary! 💕 And his portrayal of his mother is glorious! (edited) 4d

The Guardians | John Grisham

" Death cases drag on for years at a glacial pace until there is an appointment with the needle. Then things get frantic, we work around the clock, and when a stay is issued we know that months and years will pass before the next scare. We never relax, though, because our clients are innocent and struggling to survive the nightmare of prison."

fictionaddictbooks I can easily relate to most of John Grisham's books. He never disappoints with his legal thrillers😉 3w

Into The Water | Paula Hawkins
post image

Paula Hawkins definitely outdid herself writing Into the Water! It makes her previous novel (The Girl on the train) look like child's play. I'm totally gobsmacked. The novel is so well written with so many intrigues and twists that you'll never see coming. The last time I raved about any novel this much was after I read Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl. Well written Paula 👍

By reading this book I'm learning stuff about South Africa that I never knew. A lot of it is painful just like segregation of blacks was in America. But apartheid in South Africa is a whole different ball game. Imagine, applying to be white? Pencil test? All just ridiculous.

SW-T His book was interesting and informative! Learned a lot. Welcome back to Litsy 🎉 @LitsyWelcomeWagon #LitsyWelcomeWagon 4mo

I totally found the letters between Trevor and his mother funny and interesting. I liked the fact that when his mother would write to him she would first quote a Bible verse to introduce what she had to say in the letter itself.

The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides

She's silent. She's mute. Mental care givers have given up on her. Many believe she did it- murdered her husband. But did she? Find out in this gripping psychological thriller. The suspense is equally gripping. There, I said it. Now go argue with your book😊😯

BookishMe How are you enjoying this? 1y
fictionaddictbooks @BookishMe I finished reading it yesterday and I'm pretty sad. I felt it could have ended differently from how it ended. Very emotional & deep. But it was a good read. 1y
BookishMe @fictionaddictbooks I was satisfied with the ending actually. It was obvious Celestial had moved on from being a wife. While I could understand why she went with Roy after the fight, her heart wasn't in it. So glad Roy could recognize she was merely obliging (out of sympathy/ pity?) 1y

Just finished reading this....

I‘m so lucky to have you, Leni,” Mama said, trying to organize her cards with one hand.

“We‘re a team,” Leni said. “Peas in a pod.”

“Two of a kind.”

Words they said all the time to each other; words that felt a little hollow now. Maybe even sad.
