message 8: by Aoibhínn (new)

Aoibhínn (aoibhinn) I finished Monday Mornings by Sanjay Gupta by Sanjay Gupta yesterday morning. I really enjoyed this novel. It is actually very similar to ER. At times during reading this book, I did feel like I was reading an ER script just with different characters! The plot was interesting, gripping, well-developed and well-written. The medical lingo was easy to understand.The characters were interesting, vivid and well-developed. My only gripe about this novel was that I would have liked to learn more about what happened to the characters at the end of the novel.

Now I'm a few chapters into What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty by Liane Moriarty. Great book so far!

Jane(Janelba) (janelba) | 769 comments I've just completed Room by Emma Donoghue . It was very interesting and thought provoking. I gave it a 4* rating. Intriguingly written with a five year old narrator.

Susana (susana32) | 524 comments I've read the novella I Love the Earl (The Truth About the Duke #0.5) by Caroline Linden it was a cute and sweet romance. Then i decided to give a shot to Jennifer Armentrout adult series, so i read the first Tempting the Best Man (Gamble Brothers, #1) by J. Lynn . It was okay, could have been better if the last part wasn't so face palming inducing, i guess...
Now i'm reading Shadows and Light Luz e Sombras (Pilares do Mundo, #2) by Anne Bishop although i love the author "black jewels" and "Ephemera" series, this one, not so much.
So i put that one on hold, and decided to finally read In The Forests of Serre by Patricia A. McKillip . Mckillip, has probably the most beautiful writing that i've ever encountered..

Regarding my reading resolutions for this year, i'm going to try to finally read, some series that i have been curious for some time now...like Stacia Kane series, Kalayna Price, Darynda Jones, Rob Thurman's, amongst many others.

~♡♥ April ♥♡~ | 8 comments I had some Virgin River books cheap from the Used Book Store where I live and I have to say I'm really enjoying the series. I've just finished Whispering Rock (Virgin River, #3) by Robyn Carr and starting A Virgin River Christmas (Virgin River, #4) by Robyn Carr . I love a series where you get to know and love the characters.

I've seen this group has a Virgin River Challenge which I may have to join now :D


message 22: by Aoibhínn (new)

Aoibhínn (aoibhinn) I've finished reading What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty by Liane Moriarty. I really loved this novel! The plot was very intriguing, compelling and well-written with an interesting and unique premise. I loved the author's writing style. The story was very funny and some parts were quite touching and made me want to cry. The characters were all well-developed, vivid and believable. I found it easy to relate to Alice and the other characters. I was unable to put this book down for long. I was desperate to find out what was going to happen next! I gave it 5 stars!

Vi | 2012 comments I finished the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher. It was an ok fantasy series - a little to clean and nice and it could have easily cut down a book. Just a bit disappointed in it, I guess.

I started The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski for the group read. It's going ok so far.

message 36: by Gwnhwyfer (new)

Gwnhwyfer | 266 comments Quick read of The Baby Swap Miracle. Caroline Anderson by Caroline Anderson (was alright, loved the British country setting, the female lead got a little annoying after awhile with her constant need for independence). Also started The Perfect Hope (Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy, #3) by Nora Roberts ; haven't read Nora in quite awhile, so it's nice to get back into her again!

Erin, "The viscount who loved me" is my favourite Bridgerton book. What i laughed with the scene (view spoiler)


message 42: by Aoibhínn (new)

Aoibhínn (aoibhinn) Yesterday I finished reading The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott by Kate Alcott. I really enjoyed this novel. It was very hard to put it down. I loved all the historical details about the Titanic and its survivors. I liked this unique take on the Titanic disaster. Not many books about the Titanic sinking feature the aftermath of it and how survivors try to deal with what happened and move on. I gave it 4 stars!
