Sula - Toni Morrison

I received this book for free through a complimentary Quarterly Literary Box.

 

After hearing much about her, I have finally read a book by Toni Morrison. I really enjoyed this book. The way Morrison writes is so beautiful. She definitely has a way with words.

 

The story itself was interesting. Sula and Nel together were so interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a female friendship quite like that before. Sula had this ethereal quality about her that was really captivating.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Book 2 The Hammer of Thor - Rick Riordan

I LOVED this.

 

Magnus is such a precious little cinnamon roll. I love him so much.

 

Alex is my new favorite character. It was so refreshing to see a gender fluid/transgender character. I think I may have a crush on Alex because she/he is just that awesome.

 

Overall, I loved everything about this. It was funny. I loved the pop culture references. The story was good. I can't wait for the next book.

Living the Dream: A Novel - Lauren Berry

I received this book for free through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers.

 

First off, I don't see why a coffee cup was chosen to be on the cover. The main characters are constantly drinking alcohol not coffee.

 

I wasn’t blown away by this book. It definitely started a bit slow. It took a while for it to finally get interesting and for a plot to actually emerge. Once that happened I enjoyed it. I was also expecting this book to be a funny book but it wasn’t. On the plus side, I did enjoy the feminist parts of it.

 

Overall, it’s a good, but not super amazing, read.

Conversations with Friends - Sally C. Rooney

I received this book for free through LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers.

 

This book gave me so many feels. It was a roller coaster of emotions. For some reason I really connected to this book. There was something so captivating about it.

 

I felt like this book would make a great movie or miniseries on HBO. There's something really special and different about it that would translate well to the screen.

 

The characters felt very real and I think that's what I liked most about it. I loved Nick. He was so different from what I had expected.

 

Overall, I'm obsessed with this book.

Wreck and Order: A Novel - Hannah Tennant-Moore

I received this book for free through LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers.

 

I can see why many people abandoned this book. The beginning is quite aimless and boring. For me, it wasn't until Elsie went to Sri Lanka for the second time that it got interesting.

 

I don't quite know what to make of this book. I kind of see what it was trying to achieve but it lacked a clear direction.

 

Overall, this wasn't completely horrible but it still wasn't a worthwhile read.

Black Widow Red Vengeance (A Black Widow Novel) (A Marvel YA Novel) - Margaret Stohl

I know a lot of people don't like this series, but I enjoy it. In comparison to the first book, this one was much better.

 

The plot was relatively simple which I liked. We got a lot more Natasha which is always nice. Plus we also got Captain Marvel!

 

Overall, I enjoyed it and thought it was a lot of fun. I hope the series continues because the end sets up a sequel.
