Half a Century

49 The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff

I found the premise very interesting, especially because I didn’t know much about the topic. However, I enjoyed the modern day story component so much more than Ann Eliza’s. I felt the writing style and tone was very accurate, but I found her to be downright annoying. I assumed her boss at times.

50 Jumpstart the Work by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Read this one so fast, didn’t realize it was YA fix. I loved the story, although I wish Wilbur wasn’t gay… I wanted him and Elle to end up together.

51 This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz

I liked it, I liked how it is set in Jersey and I knew a lot of the places he was writing about. I didn’t realize at first it was told from a few different characters’ perspectives, so that was a little confusing.

52 Heads or Tails by Leslie Gordon

A woman takes her friend’s baby while she recovers from postpartum depression. Chick lit for sure, I liked it except I felt the author was repetitive at times, and talked about stupid stuff way too much.
