You know what lots of books means? LOTS of quilting!!!
It's time for the #SundayBookReview!
The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jackson. I liked it. The heroine was a QUILTER!! Sad story with heartwarming resolution. 👍👍
Killing Lincoln by Bill OReilly & Martin Dugard. Very interesting. Lots of information I didn't know. I didn't love the audio book as it was narrated by O'Reilly and he seemed to be yelling at me the whole time. No Bueno! 👍 for Bills's reading, 👍👍 for the book.
Emerald Green & Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier.
Super fun time travel trilogy! 👍👍
My review of Firefly Lane and Fly Away by Kristin Hannah shifted as I read. This series was an in depth look into a life long relationship of two women. I ended up loving it! The books are long and tell you everything. Great characters! Enduring love, forgiveness and redemption. 👍👍
Up for review this week is Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella.
Honestly, I didn't expect to like this book, I'm not sure why. As it so happens, I absolutely LOVED it! It was funny and clever. The romance was good, the twists were good and the characters were ...(what's a word for enchanting and delightful that doesn't sound as stuffy and pretentious as either of those?)...I loved the characters. They were flawed with good hearts and kind intentions. I am a sucker for personal growth and redemption. This book had both in spades. LOVED it! Read it! 👍👍
(I am in the middle of #TheGirlWhoStoppedSwimming. I am enjoying it 😍)
I really enjoy getting away for a vacation, but I REALLY like getting back home and life. ...I must be getting old 😁.
This week I finished five more books from my (ever growing) list! Thank you, friends for adding great suggestions!
First up this week is A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. BRILLIANT! You have to go read this book right now, seriously! Funny, hilarious really, heart warming and so worth every second! Every person I talk to in the next while will be recommended this book. AMAZING. TWO (giant) 👍👍.
I also really enjoyed Cinder by Marissa Meyer. This was a fun twist on the tale of our beloved Cinderella. Very enjoyable with an exciting plot. Two 👍👍.
The Lake House by Kate Morton is a good old fashioned mystery driven by strong, smart women. Twists and turns and of course intrigues! 👍👍
Death Comes to Pemberley by PD James was pretty good. I liked seeing my favorite characters after Pride & Prejudice. The book was well written and the story good. ...I just liked the movie more...😁. I give the book one and a half 👍.
Yesterday I finished Still Alice by Lisa Genova. This book made me sad and reflective. It was so sad to see her watch and be aware as she lost her mind and herself. I felt so badly for her and her family. Genova did a beautiful job writing this book. 👍👍
