  1. I adored The Storyteller. I was a little apprehensive before reading it because I’d burned myself out on Jodi Piocult novels. But I just… it made me cry and my heart feel a little too big for my chest. Glad you enjoyed reading it so much that it ended up on your list for this week!

    • I can definitely relate to burning out on Jodi Picoult books. I’d read a bunch of her earlier books, and then just couldn’t any more… until The Storyteller, which I thought was chilling and marvelous and so moving. Thanks for stopping by!

    • I loved it! I gobbled it up (it’s a quick read), but I plan to listen to the audiobook in the next couple of months to take it at a slower pace and enjoy the language and imagery. 🙂

  2. I loved The Storyteller so much!! I think Picoult’s books have been getting better and better lately! I cannot wait to read her new one later this year!

  3. The Fireman is the only one I have also read and it made my list too! The Steep & Thorny Way is still sitting in my review pile and I seriously have no idea why. lol Great list!
