It's funny, had this book not actually been written in 1958, I don't think I would have gotten through it. It was just so quaint, and a little too...much, I think. But I gave it leeway because I guess that's what it really was like at the time?

I'd say this was more of a 4.5 star read, but not quite one that I'd want to round up to 5 stars.

I started this thinking it was going to be fluffy, but it really wasn't. It was actually pretty melancholy--there was a sadness that kind of permeated th

This is a hard book to review--I'd classify it as a good read, but it's not one I particularly enjoyed reading, if that makes sense.

The whole family dynamics in here were just so interesting, though. I loved the look at what brilliance can really mea

What a good read. It had everything I like--family secrets, complex relationships, intrigue, and all in an easy-flow style.

The "surprise" in here wasn't exactly surprising after reading Helen's first chapter, but that was perfectly fine. I don't thin

I'd say this was a 3.5 star read. It's a hard one to rate, because it really got under my skin and made me think--obviously a marker of a good book--but it also dragged to the point that after I got to the 300-page mark, I had to stop myself from ski ...more

This was another book that I put down a few months ago when I was barely a chapter in, and I'm not sure why it didn't hold my interest at first. Because when I re-started it, I loved it right from the beginning.

I loved the characters, and more specif

This book got 3 stars because I enjoyed the first half of this. But I didn't really care for the way it unfolded. I thought it was very predictable, and I was actually rooting for Kal to be the one who was a little unhinged. In my mind anyway, that's ...more

I actually started reading this a few months ago and put it down before I got through the first chapter. But when I picked it back up, I couldn't remember what my problem was. I'm guessing I found it hard to get into the first time, but this time it ...more

I loved this book! You go into it knowing that it was going to be sad because of the storyline, but it wasn't really a depressing book. Parts of it were actually kind of funny, probably because Daisy had an interesting turn of phrase.
