Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney #sallyrooney @librofm @MacmillanAudio #fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer

Susanne’s Review: What can I say?:  Sally Rooney has something that I don’t believe that many other authors have and what is even more spectacular is that she can put it down on paper.  She has a deep, innate understanding of life, love, friendships, and relationships, and that is intangible.  “Beautiful World, Where Are You”Continue reading “Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney #sallyrooney @librofm @MacmillanAudio #fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer”

Susanne’s Review: Oh, Drat!  How I wanted to love this and count my lucky stars, but alas, Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandra Bellefleur was not quite for me.  Stop the presses, however, as it wasn’t the plot or the characters I didn’t love, it was something else altogether..
