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 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.
I listened to Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt for two reasons. The first, it mentioned it was perfect for fans of A Man Called Ove, and the second reason was my curiosity about the octopus. This brilliant, moving debut hooked me as it connected lives and introduced me to an unforgettable character named Marcellus.
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.
