I picked this book up because it fit one of my reading challenge prompts (a book translated from an Asian language) and because the cover caught my eye. Never let anyone tell you that covers don’t matter. This was a fairly quick read and felt more like various vignettes than a novel but there was a uniqueness to the story that I enjoyed.
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.
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.
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.
I read this book as part of the 2019 Pop Sugar reading challenge but it had been on my radar for a while. A few friends read it and enjoyed it and I was looking for something light and fun to read. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised I enjoyed this book as much as I did and think that anyone looking for quick, fun, romance would like it as well.
I am always on the lookout for new graphic novels by authors I haven’t read so I was excited to read Sleepless. I didn’t know much about the story beforehand so it was a nice surprise to find out that I really enjoyed the story and the characters. I can’t wait to read volume two!
I have a lot of thoughts and feelings about this book. There were times I really wanted to stop reading but kept on because it was my book club pick and I wanted to be able to discuss it. Then something strange happened…about 40% of the way through the book I ended up really liking it and actually found myself crying at the end. Suffice to say, there were things I really liked about this book and things I did not.
This book had been on my radar since last year when it started popping up on some best lists and when I saw how much it was being checked out at my library. I had heard mixed reviews but was looking for a quick, fun read that would fulfill one of my reading challenges. There were things that I loved about this book but I can’t say it was the best romantic comedy I’ve read. The writing was good though and I liked the characters enough that I enjoyed this book in the end.
