I recently read a book about Alva Vanderbilt and learned about how she fought for a woman's right to vote. This book is about her daughter, Consuelo, and her marriage to the Duke of Marlborough. It is an interesting and fascinating read. The picture I posted is of Consuelo and Winston Churchill who was a good friend to her and cousin of her husband.

Crazeedi I read a book about alva and I read this one too. Both very good! 7d
Crazeedi The clothes they wore though! I dont know how they did it. And what alva put Consuelo through, and what alva went through! Of course the millions were helpful 7d
litenthusiast @Crazeedi All the clothes and layers they described I found interesting, but I could not imagine wearing those dresses especially in the heat. 6d

I had a really difficult time getting into this book. That being said, I'm so glad I kept reading because I ended up LOVING this book. I loved the writing style and the character development. I found the story to be unpredictable. Now I can't wait to read book 2 in the series!

I loved this book. There was just something about her writing that hooked me, plus it is a fairytale retelling. She honestly seems to understand fandom and how it bonds people together. In her acknowledgments Poston writes, "There might not be real magic in this world, but there is the power of fandom." I am now a fan of this series.

GondorGirl I just started the sequel! The first book was so adorable! 4w

"Success often lies not in what happens but in what you prevent from happening."

I wanted to read this memoir before I watched the film. I found Stallworth's investigation interesting especially how he managed to go undercover. My only complaint about the book is it repeats itself a lot, I asked myself a few times "Didn't I just read that description?" Regardless, I'm curious how his memoir compares to the film.

Victoriahoperose I haven‘t read the book yet which is super unlike me, but I did watch the movie yesterday. I was really impressed with it all the way around. Hope you like it! 2mo

The Baker's Secret: A Novel | Stephen P. Kiernan

I would rank this between a pick and so-so. The first half of the book was wonderful and unique about Emma, a young baker in France in 1944 who bakes bread for the occupying troops and manages to also make bread to sustain her neighbors. Halfway through the book it started to feel like the same thing over and over. However, I kept reading because I really was invested in Emma and what happens to her.
