The Alice Network- The Forgotten Women of The First World War

Today I am reviewing this month’s buddy read pick The Alice Network by Kate Quinn!Full disclosure, I LOVE historical fiction; it is my favourite genre. So I had really high hopes for this book; the story sounded really interesting and I loved that it included a strong female narrative. However, having completed the book, there was much left to be desired.

The Glass Hotel- Mandel Does It Again

My favourite read during quarantine has been Station Eleven By Emily St. John Mandel. Station Eleven is a timely novel (it is about the aftermath of a global pandemic), that explores the idea of what would become of civilization. The novel is beautifully written; Mandel is a master at seamlessly jumping timelines and POVs. In finishing this novel, I was eager to read more of her work- thats when I picked up The Glass Hotel with high hopes in it being as good as its predecessor. 4/5 Stars
