Anyone else crave a good mystery in the summer? “A Slow Fire Burning” was pretty good. There are three deaths, two of them closely connected. The reader finds out the premise and murderer of each. This book definitely engaged me, and it was a quick read, it was just a bit confusing. With five perspectives and three murders, it was hard to keep track of at times. Overall: 3.5 stars

5/5

I really loved this. It had several timelines and characters, and all connect unexpectedly with the ancient tale of “Cloud Cuckoo Land”. The writing, however, made this book amazing.

Cloud Cuckoo Land | Anthony Doerr

“Why can‘t healing happen as quickly as wounding? You twist an ankle, break a bone- you can be hurt in a heartbeat. Hour by hour, week by week, year by year, the cells in your body labor to remake themselves the way they were the instant before your injury. But even then you‘re never the same: not quite.”

I received this novel in a Goodreads giveaway, and I was blown away. This book made me laugh and cry and really connect with all the characters. It‘s a really great narration of motherhood, adoption, sexual assault, and immigration. Highly recommend!

OwlCrate January pick! I loved the characters in this one and the family dynamic. However, I would have loved more context into the history of the world, Ashoka. Details were just sprinkled throughout when relevant, and it got confusing. Overall, I‘d give it 3/5 stars, and it was one of the better OwlCrate books I‘ve received.

I finished this one a couple days ago and loved it! It had such a good winter atmosphere and it was really easy to get through. Kinda creepy and mysterious, and I‘m proud to say I figured out the plot twist💁‍♀️📚

Brewychock48 I loved it. Lots of twists. It was a fast read. What an ending! 7mo

I was honestly really disappointed by this. I just felt like the characters were very undeveloped; I felt no connection to them. The concept was really cool though.

I just started reading this for school. Holden‘s character is very controversial so far, but I actually like him😂

The American Royals series is so fun and I wasn‘t sure there was going to be a third one. I usually stick to standalones, but this series is one I will keep coming back to. 😝😝

Out of Love | Hazel Hayes

This book was great but hard to get used to. A relationship is narrated from the end to beginning, so the structure is a bit confusing at first. Besides that, amazing read. Even more entertaining than the romance between Theo and “Angel” was the exploration of a parent‘s influence on their child‘s relationships and trauma. Learning about the MC‘s background and then connecting it with problems in her relationship was really eye opening.
