This is the most engaging and inspired history book I‘ve ever had the privilege of reading. I couldn‘t put it down. The story he documents is incredibly heartbreaking and an important sequence of events we should all be more aware of. Highly recommend!

Gentleman in Moscow | Amor Towles

This book dragged on and on forever. I don‘t see what the appeal is. I‘ve heard of this book being book club picks and I don‘t get it. I was so bored it took me a year to get through.

CarolynM I get why people love it, but I also completely get why you were bored. I was somewhere in the middle 😆 12mo

Good read

The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides

I loved this and especially the audiobook version. It was paced very well, fast enough to keep me interested but slow enough to develop the characters. I really enjoyed it.

I can‘t think of anything I like about this book other than the cover 😂 In all seriousness, every short story is extremely depressing, so maybe if your life is going really great, you might enjoy the reality check. I personally didn‘t want to think about death for the 2 weeks I spent trudging through this book.

It was more of a personal memoir than what I was expecting, but the stories and experiences she wrote about will definitely stick with me.

Very cool. Kept me guessing. I love how you get to know each of the female characters from the first person perspective. Loved the ending.

Good idea for a story, it was a little interesting, not terrible.

I loved this history book. It really took a look at anthropology and philosophy in the context of history and covered such things as religion and morality as well. I really enjoyed it.

Pieces of Her | Karin Slaughter

Karin Slaughter‘s writing is amazing. This had great character development, great pacing, super intriguing. A bit violent at times for me, but it added to the intensity for sure. I loved it and I‘m looking forward to reading the rest of her books.

Really love her writing style. This was a good read. Gone Girl was better in my opinion.

Beautiful mix of autobiography and life coaching/inspiration. I could re-listen to this several more times. Sooo many good points and perspectives. She values hard work, commitment, and dreaming big!

The Great Gatsby | F. Scott Fitzgerald

Very short read for a classic novel (pleasantly surprising). Felt like a short story, but to the point. I would have liked for it to be longer to allow for some more character development.

A cute coming-of-age story. A little slow for my taste but I do like the setting it takes place in.

A take on one person‘s experience of therapy. Personally I found it to be a bit boring and dragged out.

The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah

A little too much detail for my taste, but a good family drama overall. I liked that the story was set in Alaska. That made it unique.

Literally like the first 2/3 of the book seemed totally normal, and then shit just got wild. Sci-fi/fantasy

Great autobiography. Read like a fiction book. Reminded me of some of the themes in Educated.

Gone Girl | Gillian Flynn

I liked how this was written a lot, and how you got to hear a first person perspective from both the husband and the wife. Definitely a book I‘d like to read a second time around to catch more of the details as the story unravels.

This book was so eye-opening. I feel like I learned a lot of history I never knew before and it was truly appalling. Not for the faint of heart, but information we should all recognize.
