Gregory and the Grimbockle - Melanie Schubert

I received the book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

This was such a cute story! I loved the idea of threads connecting everyone together and how important it is to strengthen those bonds.

 

I also loved the soundtrack! It’s such a creative idea to add a musical score to the book and it really added that extra special something.

 

Overall, I adored this book. I just wished it was a tiny bit longer because I didn’t want it to end.

Ultimate Courage - Piper J. Drake

I received this book for free through Goodreads’ First Reads.

 

This book was good up until the end. The ending was a little far-fetched and unrealistic given how the characters had previously acted. On the positive side, I did love the dog and the connection he had with both Alex and Elisa.

 

Overall, it was a good romance novel, but not the best.

The Travelers: A Novel - Chris Pavone

I received this book for free through Bookstr’s (formerly the Reading Room) giveaways.

 

When I first started this book I didn’t find it that interesting. It was a bit of a muddled mess. There were so many characters’ perspectives it was hard to keep track of it all. About halfway through, the book finally started picking up. The story finally started making more sense and had the action I was looking for.

 

Overall, this wasn’t the most perfect thriller but it was still entertaining.

The Chilbury Ladies' Choir: A Novel - Jennifer Ryan

I received this book for free through Bookstr’s (formerly The Reading Room) giveaways.

 

I really liked this book. It is told entirely in letters and journal entries which I absolutely love. Plus it even has a map of the town which was super helpful to have.

 

I loved how the book showcased the women and how their lives were impacted by the war. It told such a range of stories, from the good times to the really bad times, without ever losing its optimism.

 

Overall, it was a book with a lot of heart.

Rutherford Park - Elizabeth Cooke

 

This is your typical historical fiction novel about family drama caused by secrets. I happen to like books like this so naturally I liked this. It wasn’t the best one I ever read, but it was still good and entertaining for the most part. It took a while for the story to actually get going. What I really liked was how it took place just before World War I broke out. It captured a really interesting time in England and France.
