Sourced: Snagged the e-book at my local library
Meows: 4.02 out of 5. While I didn’t fully love the story itself, the writing and capture of a moment in time was honestly so beautiful.
Author: Tarryn Fisher
Sourced: Snagged on Amazon, mostly because I needed it fast but first learned about this book from The Stripe’s Book Club list
Meows: 3.78 out of 5. Not quite a solid four because you really do end up hating every character at some point.

Author: Angie Kim
Sourced: Snagged from Book of the Month, for book club
Meows: 2.71 out of 5. Interesting read, but lacks sufficient closure. Condy’s picture kind of wraps up how I feel about it too.

Author: Liane Moriarty
Sourced: passed on from a friend, read for book club
Meows: 1.2 out of 5; the usual descriptive writing from Moriarty but you won’t get the same feels as you do from her other books. This book gets one full star for character development to the point that I actually respect the author for how much I hate some of the characters.
Author: Christine Romans
Sourced: purchased on Amazon for book club
Meows: 2.5 out of 5; great if you’re 26 with time on your side, sucks if you’re 33.
