The Goose Girl - Shannon Hale

The Goose Girl  (The Books of Bayern #1)The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Princess Ani knows that as Crown Princess she's destined to be queen...until that all changes.
I really enjoyed this book. Can't wait to do a read aloud with my kiddos. Princess, action and adventure, strong characters. It's a good one. And apparently the first in a series. I'll be reading the next one.

The Dry & Force of Nature - Jane Harper

The DryThe Dry by Jane Harper
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I always enjoy a mystery that I can't figure out quickly. And this book delivered that.
I enjoyed the characters of Falk and Roco. The pacing was good. The author left some loose ends, but I'm okay with that.
Going to read the second.

Enjoyed this one even more than the first. The story line developed a bit slower, and I think that was good for the mystery. I liked the additional character development of Falk. I hope she writes a third.

Lilac Girls - Martha Hall Kelly

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So, so good. I've read a lot of wwii/Holocaust historical fiction. I always enjoy (? not sure that's the right word?) one that teaches or shows me something new. This book did that. And had all the feels throughout.

The Wife Between Us - Greer Hendricks

The Wife Between UsThe Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I didn't like this book. But I don't know if I disliked it enough to say I hated it. Twists on top of twists just for the sake of a twist. I had told a friend that it had absolutely zero likable or sympathetic characters. That's when she reminded me of Aunt Charlotte. Okay, Aunt Charlotte was likable...but clearly not memorable. The redeeming quality is the fact it was a quick read.
