Book Club - May 2020


I am so excited to get Book Club going again!  For May, we will be reading Untamed by Glennon Doyle.  Everywhere I have read about this book claims that it is a compelling read, so I am excited to see for myself.

During this crazy time, I am asking you to support one of our great local bookstores, Fiction Addiction.  We have to look out for the small bookstores that are so vital.  Please consider ordering this book and others through their store at https://www.fiction-addiction.com/ or through their bookshop.org affiliate link https://bookshop.org/books/untamed-9781984801258/9781984801258  I know some of you only read digital books, but there is a way to order digital books from bookshop.org too!

Oona Out of Order


Oona Out of Order by Margarita Montimore is a fantastic, fun read.  Oona starts out an 18-year-old girl about to turn 19 on New Years Day in the early 1980s.  As the clock strikes midnight, Onna finds herself in 2015 in her 51-year-old self.  Oona then lives her life as a 19/51-year-old until the clock strikes midnight at the end of the year and then....

 Onna struggles to fit the pieces of her life together as she lives her life out of chronological order.  This was a great read and an awesome escape from the current quarantine situation.

I purchased this book from my local bookstore, Fiction Addiction.  They were great and offered contactless curbside pickup.  During this time of uncertainty, shopping local is one great way you can help out the community.

A Good Neighborhood




A Good Neighborhood by Therese Anne Fowler is a well written, compelling book.  It is a story that needs to be told, but honestly, it was hard to read. The book discusses race and class in a way that is relatable but at the same time, you wish it were not plausible.  I will be thinking about this book for a long time to come.


 

The Family Upstairs




The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell is a fast-paced novel that keeps the reader intrigued until the very end.  Libby has just turned 25 and has inherited a house from her biological family.  The house turns out to be a mansion worth millions, but it also has a dark past.  Thrillers are generally not my go-to genre, but this book was fantastic.
