Another book borrowed from Kindle Unlimited, and a new-to-me author. We‘ll see what happens!

Bklover I‘ve read a few of his books and loved them all! 1d
jenniferajanes @Bklover Thanks! That‘s good to hear. I also have Dark Matter on Kindle. I picked it up on sale a while back. 😊 1d
Bklover I liked that one! He also wrote the Wayward Pines books. They were a tv series. 1d
jenniferajanes @Bklover 🤔 Seems like I‘ve missed out on a lot. I‘ll do what I can to catch up! 📚 1d

I Know Who You Are | Alice Feeney

Mehso-so

#unpopularopinion This “thriller” fell flat for me. I was very interested in the beginning, and I didn‘t mind the varying points of view. But somewhere along the way, the main character‘s doubting her sanity and the possibility of her being an unreliable narrator got old. About halfway through, I considered quitting. The twist at the end was unexpected, but by then I wasn‘t invested in the story enough to be appropriately shocked. ⭐️⭐️/5

The Gown: A Novel | Jennifer Robson
Pickpick

I really enjoyed the June #mmdbookclub pick! The story was told from the perspective of three women: two of them worked on Queen (then Princess) Elizabeth‘s wedding gown, and the other is the granddaughter of one of the women. The book was about the royal wedding, but it was more about the lives of people in Britain after WWII. I enjoyed the story and all the little details thrown in that made my history nerd‘s heart happy. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Monday's Not Coming | Tiffany D. Jackson

I read this book at the end of 2018 or early 2019. I was so shocked and upset that I gave it 3 stars. I liked it but couldn‘t “really like it.” However, I find myself talking about and recommending this book over and over again. The message is so important. I‘m revising it to a 5-star book.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Cool. I loved Allegedly. Stacking. 5d
jenniferajanes @JanuarieTimewalker13 Awesome! I need to find Allegedly. Monday‘s Not Coming will not leave my brain. 5d

jenniferajanes @JanuarieTimewalker13 You‘re welcome. I guess I should amend that to say that I was completely devastated by that book. I just added Allegedly to ereaderiq.com so I can see when it goes on sale for Kindle again. I‘m also going to check out interlibrary loan. 5d

One Small Sacrifice | Hilary Davidson

Amazon says this is “Book 1,” and I‘ll definitely be keeping an eye out for future installments. The story was a roller coaster ride from start to finish with so much confusion about who the villain was. There were multiple revelations along the way, and lots of character growth as well as action. Well done, Ms. Davidson! (Note: This reads like a stand-alone. No cliffhanger ending!)

I enjoyed my time with this book! The romance was sweet. Although I knew there was something dark going on in that house, I didn‘t quite piece it all together before it was revealed. The ending was satisfying too. I haven‘t read anything by Jamie McGuire before, but after reading this book, I‘ll give another book by her a try!

Wow! This book about Nazi hunters who are tracking the former mistress of an SS officer (“The Huntress”) was an excellent read. The characters were well-written, and the plot, with its twists and turns, was never boring. I‘m glad I took the time to read this one. Maybe I can read The Alice Network soon! #blameitonLitsy

***I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley, courtesy of Waterbrook and Multnomah.***

Each chapter is about a different time in Mike Donehey‘s personal or professional life. It‘s mostly about surrendering to God to allow Him to live His plans and purposes through you. There is a lot of wisdom in the midst of Mike‘s humor and stories of failures and successes. I also enjoyed the sneak peek at life behind the scenes of Tenth Avenue North.

There were aspects of this book that I didn‘t care for. Overall, I liked it. It was full of twists and turns. Some I saw coming, and some I didn‘t. The ending was satisfying, with everyone getting exactly what they deserved. I also like the teaser on the cover: “Some women get everything. Some women get everything they deserve.” Thanks for the recommendation, Littens! #blameitonLitsy

I loved this book! Following Eleanor‘s journey as she learned to open up, allow others to befriend her, and care for others was emotional and heartwarming. Eleanor‘s story is one I will be thinking about for a long time. This was my “book to movie” for #Booked2019.

This was my “book about addiction” for #Booked2019. I borrowed it from Kindle Unlimited. It has some Bible references and a Christian worldview, but it‘s not the main focus of the book. This is a story about a single mom fighting for her son‘s life - she fights on multiple fronts, and the end is hopeful. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

This was an interesting story about Godfather Drosselmeier and how the Nutcracker came to be. It was steeped in both the real world and the world of dreams, myth, and imagination.

I debated for a long time whether to give this book 2 or 3 stars. I give it 3 stars because the psychological thriller aspect had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It‘s not higher than that because the language and excessive amount of intimate details are not my cup of tea. They kept me from enjoying the book as much as I might have. I‘m still mulling over the ending. Wow!

This was my “Muslim author or MC” book for #Booked2019. It is a beautiful and moving story of a family broken by time and circumstances, and it is full of hope of what might be and of how people can change given the time, space, and love to do so. It didn‘t have the happy ending I desperately wanted, but there was so much love and hope at the end!
