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.
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
Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid has been sitting in my ‘to be read’ pile for quite some time, not because I did not think I would enjoy it; rather, I tend to be apprehensive to hyped books. However this book was nothing short of wonderful! 4.75/5 Stars
