The Nightingale: A Novel by Kristin Hannah
Dramatic, Informative, Inspiring

Poorly Written, Pointless, Boring

Adventurous, Inspiring, Interesting

Graphic, Dark, Unconvincing

Interesting, Insightful, Fun

Beautiful detail of the inter thoughts of a young woman, yet the book was slow in story line and built too quickly at the end to be completely convincing. Many plot holes were left at the end.

Dramatic, Interesting, Graphic

Three words to describe book: interesting, informative, and a bit graphic.

Fun, Interesting, Adventurous

The book was slow, unconvincing, yet interesting in that it captured a culture that isn’t my own.

Inspiring, Unconvincing, Interesting

Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Brilliant, Boring, Addictive

Something in the Water: A Novel by Catherine Steadman
Addictive, Dramatic, Dark

My three words for the book: poorly written, unconvincing, and slow. I was expecting a lot more and the main character only made made me want to put down the book and never pick it up again.

The Great Alone: A Novel by Kristin Hannah
Adventurous, Dramatic, Addictive

The book was interesting and well written, but not as good as her other novel “The Nightingale.” I felt like it could have gone deeper on the subject of the Vietnam War” and day to day life in Alaska in the late 1970s.

Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
Inspiring, Life Changing, Optimistic

My three words to describe this book were: unconvincing, poorly written, and ultimately pointless. I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone. It was a memoir sold as a self-help book, but with no feel of authenticity. Rachel had no research to back up her arguments and little information to help people improve their lives.

This was a light read. Not very inspiring or interesting.

Magic Hour: A Novel by Kristin Hannah
Interesting, Dramatic, Insightful

Well written, yet slow to start and predictable throughout.

Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People by Mahzarin R. Banaji, Anthony G. Greenwald

Maybe it’s a good thing that the topics explored in this book are no longer new, but widely discussed. Unfortunately, it doesn’t cover any concrete strategies for using our knowledge of biases to improve the way we move through the world.

Inspiring, Adventurous, Informative

Well written escape into history not often explored by writers.

Insightful, Fantastic, Inspiring


Couldn’t finish. It was poorly written and wish it had actually used the writings of the saint.

Anxious People: A Novel by Backman Fredrik
Fun, Interesting, Insightful

Good book for interesting discussion. Not the author’s best book but still a worthwhile read.
