Reading Roundup : Week of June 19, 2021
What Could Be Saved by Liese O’Halloran Schwarz
- What Could Be Saved was the book that took me the longest to complete, by far. At times the story dragged, but in the end it was a very good novel. I enjoyed how the story wound through a childhood age, and the current years. It made me want to finish the book and find out the whole story. The dynamic between all of the characters made for an interesting storyline. I’d recommend this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 Stars
The Other Mother by Matthew Dicks
- The Other Mother took me a while to get into, but in the end I kept reading because I wanted to read how Michael’s story ended. The novel was a bit slow for me, but I did learn about a new disorder I’d never heard of before. Michael was likable enough – but I didn’t connect with him a whole lot. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3 Stars
The Marriage Lie by Ali Mercer
- The Marriage Lie was a book that I really wanted to love. The premise made me immediately intrigued, but I just could not find it in me to like any of the characters. Everyone was selfish, and self serving – each with their own hidden agenda. Maybe that was the point? It lost me though. At the end, it’s a story of the ultimate role reversal. Interesting story in some places, but I could only give this one 3 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
From The Moon I Watched Her by Emily English Medley
- From The Moon I Watched Her was one of the few on my DNF pile. I got through Part 1 (about 33%) and could not bear to finish reading. One star, only because it was not possible to give zero. ⭐️
My Place At The Table by Alexander Lobrano
- My Place At The Table was a book that I loved. As someone who is a wannabe foodie, the experiences that Alec takes you on in this book is quite delicious. I’ve never traveled outside of the US, but this book made me feel like I had a front row seat to some of the more intriguing foods of Paris. I’d recommend this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 Stars
The Beach House by Jenny Hale
- The Beach House would be the perfect beach read! I’m not near the beach, so I used it as an escape to imagine I was. I really enjoyed getting to know Melanie’s story and the history of her grandma, and her elusive first love. The love story that develops is only an added bonus. I’d recommend this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 Stars
And there you have it! The books that I have recently read, and the reviews that I left for them. Remember to leave me your thoughts in the comments. And remember that just because I didn’t like a book, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a try!
I’ll be back next week with a brand new reading roundup!
