This book has been EVERYWHERE recently and its popularity seems to have come out of nowhere. It has appeared on a bunch of best of lists and has been the pick for numerous book clubs. My library currently has 30 people waiting to get their hands on this book so the hype isn’t going anywhere. I usually steer clear of books that are popular just because they are but I had heard good things about this one. I am so glad I read this book because it was a beautiful, haunting read and I can’t recommend it enough.
This was a book I read for one of the many book clubs I am in and I am so glad I got the chance to finally pick it up as I had heard great things about it since it was published. This book did not disappoint and in fact exceeded my expectations. This is a highly recommend book for me.
This is the second Taylor Jenkins Reid book I’ve read in about 3 weeks and she has quickly become a must read author for me. This book didn’t grab me as quickly as Evelyn Hugo did but once I got into the story, I couldn’t put it down. This is another great book that I would highly recommend.
This was my first time reading Amanda Quick and I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed not only this book but the way she writes. This will not be the only book I read by her and would like to continue this series.
Oh Evelyn Hugo, I adore you. For a while now, I have had friends whose book tastes I trust tell me that I needed to read “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.” So when my book club chose it for their monthly read, I was excited to finally have a reason to pick it up. I expected a quick, light read about a Hollywood starlet and her various relationships and scandals. What I didn’t expect was a heart-breaking, humorous, intriguing story that left me thinking about it for days after I had finished. I cannot recommend this book enough.
Historical fiction is a genre that I don’t normally read. I have found that I prefer reading about the actual history event as opposed to a fictionalized telling of it. There are exceptions to this of course but I struggle to find historical fiction books that I love. This book hasn’t changed my mind on the genre but I did enjoy the mystery of the story and the writing was well done.
There were things that I really enjoyed about this book and found myself wanting to find out how everyone’s lives were affected by the horoscopes. There were other things that annoyed me and prevented me from giving this a higher ratting but it was a quick, fun read and I would recommend it as a summer read.
When “The Nest” was released in 2016, I remember it being on every “must read” or “best of” list I saw. It seemed to be the hottest book that year and it immediately went on my list of to be read. And that’s where it stayed….until I needed a book about a family for one of my reading challenges. I am so glad I finally read this book because it was like nothing I expected it to be and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.
This book was on my radar because I was looking for something to meet a reading challenge prompt of: a novel by a Trans or non-binary author. Thanks to Goodreads, I found this book and saw the amazing reviews it had. It ended up being a tough, emotional, absorbing look at what it’s like to be Trans in the world today. I would highly recommend it.
