's review

it was amazing

No doubt this will be THE book of 2020.

The Where The Crawdads Sing book of 2020.

I've never read Crawdads and I wouldn't have read American Dirt if not so kindly offered the opportunity by the publisher.

This is so far from my usual genre.

Give me a thriller any day.

I want to feel compelled to flip the pages while balancing on the edge of my seat.

I want to lose sleep because I can't put a book down, a heart racing, just one more chapter type of story.


This book was nothing like what I was expecting and everything I could ever hope for.

Cummins has written a gripping and compelling narrative that every American should read. Unfortunately, those that need this message the most will refuse this book out of spite and/or the inability to read.

If that statement offends you, then you are exactly who it is directed towards.

** Thank you Hachette Australia for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. **

message 41: by Nazanin (new)

Nazanin Wonderful review, Felicia! Glad it was an enjoyable read! 💚

message 42: by Mort (new)

Mort Ha - don't worry about offending people, in today's world it is impossible NOT to offend someone, so as long as it is the right someone, take comfort in the fact that they will most likely forget about it once they get their heads out of their asses...
Unless you're talking about my lysdexic brothers and sisters out there...then eeewwww, you should be ashamed of yourself!
See - I most likely pissed someone off by making that statement, because they think I'm being serious...or am I?

Felicia Thank you Nazanin 💖

Felicia @Mort I'm not too concerned about offending anybody on goodreads as I have found that the most offendable are on Facebook being offended by the offended.
