Where The Crawdads Sing

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.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

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.

Star-Crossed

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.

The Nest

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.

Little Fish

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.
