My 4 Star Reads:

The Book of Etta by Meg Elison

Post-Apocalyptic second book in The Book of the Unnamed Midwife series. This book was good, but it seemed to stray just a bit from the formula of the first book that I loved so much. Still worth reading!

My 3 Star Reads:

The Weaver by Heather Kindt

This was a highly anticipated read for me and it did not live up to my expectations. The writing left me confused at times and the had a lot of additional scenes or characters that were left without completed stories. Overall, a good read if you come across it.

What You Did by Claire McGowan

I didn’t love this one the way I have with other Claire McGowan books. It was a good story with a good premise, just didn’t do enough for me.

A group of friends from college have a reunion and one is raped. The book follows the aftermath of that incident.
