Inspirational pep talk book would be a good graduation gift. I plan to leave it on my counter at school for kids to pick up and flip through while hanging around the desk.
A good Rowell read but not my favorite. The premise of the 'time machine' phone just didn't cut it for me and I like weird. But the character and relationship development follows suit. I also missed the humor found in her other books. I enjoyed the cultural references she is so good at. I don't think this will be an easy sell in my high school library because of the main characters ages and situations but for adults who want a more grown up Rowell story this is it.
Just a good beachy read. I wasn't impressed with how she wrapped it up but getting there was entertaining.
This is good YA. A good follow up to TFIOS, or any John Green. I read it with 2 other ladies and plan to discuss it later this month.
Our book club has mixed reviews on this one, and I can see why, but I loved it. It is slow, meandering back and forth in time and sad, tragic even. However the description of a multigenerational family and the struggles they endure is lovely and interesting. The wording and the unraveling of the story for me is satisfying. A good read for summer too, when not in a hurry, when we dream of the sea and the story is centered around a home made by the sea.
A good cozy mystery to follow reading Christie. A little heftier than usual modern cozy mysteries but I'll keep an eye out for more in the series and by this author.
I started teaching English and Spanish at Blancester in 1996. After getting my masters in Library Science, I moved into the library and I've enjoyed connecting people to books ever since!
