A group of women that all have writing in common come together for a writing awards ceremony. They are all facing difficult situations and possible failing writing careers. These women become supportive of each other as they come to understand the challenges that each other face.
Ten Beach Road and Ocean Beach just because it discussed the lives of four completely diffferent people.
Perhaps looking into the life of the character that lived with her mother and children.
Not as much as I did the other books.
I was slightly disappointed in this book. Perhaps because I had high hopes compared to the other two books I'd read. It is still a good read and I would recommend it, just not as highly as the other ones.
YES! I had always heard references to this book & never knew what they were talking about. I am so glad I read this book!
The description of the relationship of the family.
The main character by far. I expected blood & gore, but it was not that by any means. The language was not that bad either, which I was glad about.
This was a long book. I had to take breaks, but it had me thinking about the story in between sessions of listening.
Much better than I expected. Hint: the next two don't hold a candle to this book.
This book is a good book, and I'd probably place in the top quarter to middle.
I didn't really have a favorite character.
They were all performed very well. I couldn't really say which one was the best.
Tammy. She is able to see what is going on pretty much all around.
This was pretty much up front and honest about two boys being cared for by their grandmother living on a restricted income. It made me realize that what they referred to as "the hood" was really just a normal community with people working hard just trying to get by the best they can.
I have recommended this book to all my friends. I teach middle school Language Arts. We talk about characteristics of Southern Gothic all the time. (I realize this does not fit entirely into this genre). My husband and I go to Charleston frequently.
I loved the history of the old house. The characters were well flushed out.
Melanie Middleton. There wasn't enough description of Jack to know his entire personality.
Yes, or I sure tried.
It would be interesting to perhaps write from Jacks perspective, or maybe from one of the other characters (after you've read Return to Tradd Street.) if you've read this, read Th e Girl from Lagare Street and THEN Return to Tradd Street. Happy reading.
I really liked Aimee Bruneau's narration. I drive a great deal and I also listen to audible before I go to sleep. I would say this is better than the print version.
This series reminds me almost of southern Gothic. I can't think of other books like this, but I can tell you I really enjoyed this. I just wish I knew to read Girl From Lagare Street before I read this one..
I loved her accent. She was spot on.
Yes!!!!! I love this series. I have one more book to read from this author in my library.
I wish I had known ahead of time to read The Girl From Lagare street before reading this one.
I love the fact that this story has some substance to it, I was familiar with the characters AND the locations. I like books that I can listen to on my way home from work and I can escape into something I enjoy. I think I have a familiar background to Ms. Wax, since we are from the same area. I hope that more books are written using these characters. I LOVED reading about Max and the Millicent. I've been through those awful hurricanes.
Ten Beach Road- this is book is the reason why I read this book.
Yes... I like her voice.
Any of them. I probably could relate to Maddie the most, being a parent.
I loved Max's personality and the fact that he was so attached to the baby. I felt Kira was sort of a brat.
Probably not for a while, however I would like to read the coffee house series
The main character, however her name escapes me. I enjoyed the part of her going undercover.
I never knew that much about coffee & all the flavors.
No, but it was an enjoyable book for a ride home from work.
I liked the narrator's voice. That's a HUGE determining factor of when I choose books- plus reading the ratings to see if the story interests me.
It is easy for me because I drive 40+ miles one way to work. I like having easy reads to listen to on the way home from teaching. The only drawback is the voice level seems to change with each chapter.
easy read. It was slightly predictable, but I enjoyed being able to get to know the characters. I like the fact that these stories aren't all about 20 something people & women who are in middle age, facing similar struggles as myself.
A different voice, adds another personality. Great Yiddish interpretation!
I will have to think about this. Its not about dancing. Its about a family coming together through trials. Melanie was much more forgiving than I would have been. However, that's a good thing. The mother was a witch.
I think Ms. Wax needs to write a sequel. It also took me a bit to figure out why it was called Magnolia Wednesdays. When I realized, it was a silent " oh! I get it" ( aha moment).
At first I wasn't sure, but as I listened, I became more interested in hearing about Avery, Nicole & Madeline. I am familiar with all the locations in the book.
I would like to read more of her books.
Yes, it was interesting!
I could relate to Madeline. I am in the same age group & can relate to her circumstances.
