Zowza!!! (I saw this word in a book I read this week, sorry I can't remember which to give credit to, but I love it!!
I loved this book!!!
It was filled with so many great characters. There were so many times that I just wanted to haul off and slap a couple of them. They grated my nerves so much, especially Lorraine. That was, of course, before I started shedding tears for those very same people.
The story was amazing, the writing was amazing and I'm still crying over it. Even after I took a break before writing this review. A story that was fraught with emotions and surprises that I never saw coming.
An excellent read that I thought was this author's best one yet! I will always say "yes, please" to Amy Reichert's books.
Thanks to Gallery, Threshold and Pocket Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
How did I miss that yesterday was Thursday? Oops!
I'm actually almost finished Tales of Ancient Egypt. And I've also begun reading The Knife of Never Letting Go. With any luck, I will finish the former this evening and be able to return it to the library tomorrow.
Next up, The Birdwatcher. Because you know that I'm a bird watcher, plus who can resist a murder mystery investigated by a policeman with murder in his background. I'm thinking this one will go quickly!
Then to Two Boys Kissing. It's for my February book club meeting, which I will be missing. I should feel bad, I guess, but I'll be bird watching in Taiwan, so not too bad.
Two non-fiction offerings as well, In the Land of Invented Languages (because I've always secretly wanted to speak Klingon) and Walls : resisting the Third Reich.
I must have these finished before January 28th, when I fly to Taipei. Fingers crossed!
Favorite book(s) of the month: Kakerlaken, Der Himmel in deinen Worten, Sündiges Spiel, Rotkehlchen
Books started this month but haven't finished yet: Elias & Laia - Eine Fackel im Dunkel der Nacht
I'm super happy with my december. I read lots of ebooks that I got from Netgalley. Just one book wasn't a review copy. I really wanna work on my pile of ARCs. I'm also just happy that I got back into reading and actually finishing books after last month was just a mess.
