After loving and devouring Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers, I grabbed some of Jesse Q. Sutanto’s backlist from the library. Dial A for Aunties is a hilarious coming of age fiction. Filled with aunties and mystery. This immigrant Chinese-Indonesian family who will steal your heart. Come see why I enjoyed this first in the Aunties series.
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid has been on my radar since it first debut and with the new series coming to Prime I decided it was time to listen. Fascinating, addictive and brilliantly produced, I quickly slipped into this full cast narration and lost myself to rock and roll.
I was looking for fall reads and was intrigued by the idea of the Midnight Club and saw it was being adapted for a Netflix series. Narrated by Iman Benson, The Midnight Club by Christopher Pike deals with death as a group of terminally ill children meet at midnight to tell stories.
I was drawn to The Book Haters’ Book Club by Gretchen Anthony with it’s promise of book talk, humor and family. This women’s fiction story delivered a heart-felt humorous story about the Over the Rainbow Bookstore and what happens when one co-owners dies… the one who actually loved books.
Colleen Hoover delivers unforgettable feels from her contemporary romances to her paranormal stories and I dove into Reminders of Him prepared to laugh, cry and swoon… I wasn’t wrong. This poignant story touches on loss, motherhood, forgiveness and love.
Netflix bought the movie adaptation rights to Wish You Were Here by Jodi Picoult and so I chose to listen to the audiobook narrated by Marin Ireland because we all know the book is better. Relevant, poignant and deeply moving story that takes place during the pandemic. Grab a cup of coffee and check out my thoughts.
I’ve been given the chance to enjoy a few Literati Book Club boxes and my first selection was The Divines by Ellie Eaton. This was a book selected by Elin Hilderbrand -Queen of the Beach Reads. Grab an iced coffee and learn more about the boxed book club and The Divines.
Narrated by Antonia Beamish, The Last Goodbye by Fiona Lucas shared a realist, poignant look at loss and learning to love again. If you’ve ever lost someone you’ll see pieces of yourself in these characters.
