Daisy Jones & The Six

I loved Taylor Jenkins Reid’s previous release, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. I loved Evelyn because it focused on a time period I’m fascinated by (old Hollywood), it had a great romance, and the twist caught me by surprise at the end. It just worked as a great novel. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn…

Homegoing

This book has been sitting on my shelf for at least two years. Everyone praised the book when it came out, but I never felt the urge to pick it up because I knew it would not be an easy read. And it wasn’t, but it wasn’t supposed to be. Homegoing discusses the slave trade,…

The Immortalists

A few months ago, I picked this up, liked the first chapter, and then put it down because I became too busy. Earlier this month I picked The Immortalists up again, and I regretted it. Not because it was horrible. I simply did not get along with it at all. Why? Well, it’s definitely a…

The Thirteenth Tale

This book is another one that has been sitting on my shelf for so long that I forgot what it was about. Upon rereading the summary I was re-intrigued. It mentions ghost stories, mysterious authors, references to Jane Eyre, and old mansions. I also remembered that The Thirteenth Tale got some acclaim when it came…

The Muse

I love this cover. I love it so much that I kept it on my shelf for a year and a half. OK, I’m joking, obviously. I have a lot of historical fiction on my bookshelves, but I never seem to be in the mood for one. But, when I finally pick one up (usually…
