I‘ve been devouring the books on my iPad that I have from the library but decided that it‘s time to switch to a paper book while on vacation. Easier reading on the beach. I‘ve had this on my shelf for a while but never realized it was set in Positano which is one of my favorite destinations.

I'm going to give this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, but not because I loved it. I admire the story this author crafted and it upset me SO MUCH.

Carrie Soto Is Back | Taylor Jenkins Reid
post image
Pickpick

I was SO excited when I discovered a new book was coming from Taylor Jenkins Reid. Then, when I saw the title, I couldn't place Carrie Soto in my recollection for previous novels. It turns out that she was only a mention and a side character in “Malibu.“ But she becomes a full and memorable character quickly.

marleed So much fun. I went back and read about Mick Riva in Evelyn Hugo to prep tor Malibu Rising. Then following TJR‘s upcoming book announcement went back and read who Carrie was to the Riva siblings in anticipation of the August release. It‘s so fun to get those Easter eggs! 4mo

Other Birds: A Novel | Sarah Addison Allen
post image
Pickpick

I would like to live in a world imagined and written by Sarah Addison Allen. There's a little shimmer of the mystical and magical that offsets the ordinary and it is lovely.

In this new novel, we spent time with a cast of characters that are brought to the Dellawisp Condos by chance...or is it?

Damnation Spring | Ash Davidson

This is one of those books that leaves you feeling like you've been somewhere. I have been in this town, driven these windy, washed-out roads along the cliffs, sloshed through creeks and looked upon a ridge filled with redwoods. I've mourned their losses and worried along with these people. #LMPBC Round 14, Group B

I really like Emily Henry‘s books. This #ARC is awkward to read on my iPad because I can‘t adjust the font size so I‘m having to pinch it out and back in again, BUT — that‘s a small price to pay to read this goodie. ⭐️📚

I haven‘t been on much so I don‘t know if this topic has already come up. I joined this new book group #Literati that seems to get its inspiration from #BOMC a little bit. The premise is neat, different book influencers choose a book each month & you can have it shipped to you or buy it on your own & participate in the conversation w/ the book group online. I joined Elin Hilderbrand‘s but you can switch each month. https://literati.com/book-clubs/

That Summer: A Novel | Jennifer Weiner
post image
Pickpick

THIS is my favorite Jennifer Weiner book. There are important topics tackled in this story about two Dianas - rape, family dynamics, homosexuality, teenage angst & more. There is Diana A, or "Daisy" as her husband has renamed her; & Diana B, whose identity has also been taken away but in a very different way. Both Daisys' inner voices becomes louder & by the end they are able to speak up for themselves, for teenaged daughters & for friends.

vlwelser I'm even more excited to dive into this one now. Great review! 2y
