I love Marian Keyes. Her books never fail to suck me in. This one had me feeling all the emotions. Great read!

I‘m trying to put a dent in this one. I like it, but it could be shorter. There are unnecessary bits. Maybe her editor was having a bad day.

This morning‘s start time. This is outside my kitchen window. Only 20cm of spring snow. 😑 But we don‘t have to go anywhere today. It‘s going to be another great day for some cozy reading. I‘m on chapter 17 and I really want to smack Hugh upside the head.

Lots going on here! Depressed Hugh needs a break to sort his head out, a break not just from daily life, but also from his marriage. Amy is left to cope with normal life, though how it can be normal when your husband‘s on a break & you‘re not?

I loved the complicated relationships, especially with her 3 girls, the humour, & the side-storylines. It dragged a little in the middle though - I expect I could find others by MK with plots I enjoy more.

Drizzly & foggy today, but half way through my #litsywalkers walk, I discovered how to log individual walks on Fitbit 🎉. So it was over 2 miles, at least.

Here are some of the more interesting store signs around - a newsagents and a (very nice) bakery, if ever you need cheese straws or an uglibun.

And yes, I‘m still on the same audiobook. But no, I don‘t have much to say about it. I think I‘d read MK again, in print, perhaps... (Faint praise!)

Cathythoughts Looks fab ! My daughter just got a Fitbit ( I got it for her for her birthday) they are great yokes ♥️♥️ 5mo
RachelO @kaye Cheese straws are cheesy flakey pastry strips (very 1970s!). The Uglibun is unique to this bakery - it‘s a huge lumpy sticky bun (sweet bread roll) packed with dried fruit and cherries- guaranteed to counteract any walking you may have done that day! 5mo
RachelO @Cathythoughts I‘ve only had it a couple of weeks but I‘m quite liking it. It certainly makes you aware of how much you‘re not moving! 5mo

Forgot to post yesterday- too busy walking - but here are some flowers! The crocuses are out. #litsywalkers

Wanted to say thank you @kaye for making going to the gym seem almost normal (in my world it‘s not!)- I went yesterday (walked there & back ✅), first time as a ‘real person‘ rather than with the ‘health issues‘ group, & I actually enjoyed it. Apart from the weights. (Enjoying weights = never gonna happen!) Your ‘get on it‘ posts are fab 😘

Kaye Rachel. I‘m glad it‘s helping you. It‘s actually helping me too, as I really have to force myself to go to the gym. I don‘t mind walking outside but the gym is so boring. If I tell you guys to do it , I‘m better at going myself. 5mo

Flags outside the year-round outdoor cafe (for all the hardened dog-walkers in these parts!) - the middle one‘s a Devon flag. And I‘ve walked further today than I have in the last couple of days, so yay! Also it stopped raining, just as I headed out!

The book? I may be ramping up the speed on it fairly soon. I enjoy it when I‘m listening to it, but have no particular desire to actually hit play. Which isn‘t the best sign... #litsywalkers

Kaye Neat picture. I know what to mean about ramping up the speed. The book I started today is a bit of a sleeper. Good job on the walk and the flag ! 5mo

Short-but-fast #litsywalkers walk today, with some railway bridges for a view. I wish I was one of those people who could read a print book while walking down the street (they‘re out there, and they‘re quite scary - I‘d fall down a manhole or something 🕳 !). Hope you have sunshine for walking today! 🌞

kathedron Daughter and I used to pass a man read-walking every day on our way to school. He'd always look up from his book to say "good morning". Never knew his name: we called him Dan Brown because that's who he was reading the first time we saw him. (The next week it was Stephanie Meyer, so...) 5mo

RachelO @kathedron 😂😂😂 To be fair, they‘re books you need to read in one go. And maybe they leave enough brain power free to be polite/avoid cyclists. I‘m still fairly sure something catastrophic would happen if I tried it though! 5mo

Had a lovely #litsywalkers walk this afternoon in drizzly, mizzly, foggy misty stuff. But glad I actually ventured out - was absolutely planning on staying inside today.

And back to The Break on audio. Marian Keyes is funny. We‘re currently at a hipster storytelling event. With beanbags. And hot chocolate. And vodka. It sounds great!!

Today‘s #litsywalkers weather report: it‘s a bit wet, & a lot windy. Apart from the times it‘s a lot wet & a bit windy. But got a mile and a half in before the need for hot tea got the better of me.

Finished the Jan Morris audiobook & back to The Break, which I‘m still enjoying, but flip, this narrator! She has a lovely Irish accent, but can NOT speak Geordie for toffee. As one of the appeals of said Geordie is his accent, this is A Big Problem!

Kaye Beautiful view , even if the audio is a bit bothersome. Great walk ! 6mo

Started listening to Marian Keyes‘s newest on today‘s #audiowalk. I haven‘t read her before, and I‘m quite surprised actually. Having seen her on TV, I assumed she wrote silly light stuff. But here she is writing about grief and depression - but still making me splurt with laughter in the post office queue. Think we‘ll get on just fine!

RachelO @Reggie So. We were on a hunt for admirable Rachels in literature (as you do). I‘m guessing this one isn‘t going to make the mark either??! @mrsmarch (edited) 6mo
Reggie Well, that Rachel comes out of it being a better person. So I think that‘s admirable. Plus it was funny. 6mo
RachelO @reggie @lindy It‘s really good to hear you‘ve both enjoyed her stuff though. If it continues like this, I‘ll definitely be reading more. I think she may be a victim of not-entirely-appropriate cover design. 6mo
Kaye I can‘t recall ever reading anything by this author. I probably figured it was chic-lit type stuff and I‘m about as into chic-lit as a 300 pound truck driver that sumo wrestles for sport. (edited) 6mo

This isn't the sort of thing I usually go for but I was looking for an easy read novel to go alongside reading the very heavy This Changes Everything and Marian Keyes kept being utterly charming on my favourite podcasts so I thought I'd give her new book a shot. I couldn't put it down it was completely absorbing and Keyes writes love, sex and relationships so well. A heartwrenching and enjoyable read #mariankeyes #thebreak #sex #irish #love

Although I wasn‘t taken with the narrator of this audiobook, the story itself was really enjoyable. The Break is the story of Amy and Hugh and how death and depression impacts their family dynamic. Serious in places but with a good amount of humour and a very modern feel to the writing. The plot was insightful and the characters were likeable. I had a particular soft spot for Amy‘s mum and her unintentional comedy. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

It‘s been a slow reading weekend for me (life has got in the way) but I managed to start this earlier. I‘m not mad about the narrator but the story is unfolding nicely.

Side note: I wish the #Bookchoice app displayed the amount of listening time left in the whole book and not just what‘s left in each chapter 😕

Started listening to The Break by Marian Keyes as my commute book. Love Marian Keyes books and they usually make great audiobooks. Interesting concept, but a boring cover!

AlaMich Should I be embarrassed that I have never heard of Marian Keyes? 😬 (edited) 1y
Andrew65 @Ms_T I do like the narrator as she has read one other Marian Keyes book. The woman Who Stole My Life? For some reason Marian Keyes books always work very well as audiobooks for me, some books do not work for me as audiobooks. Will let you know what I think. Like me did you buy it as a deal of the day for audible. Last year sometime I think. 1y

Really enjoyed this. It was so easy to listen to. Funny and serious at times, in just the right mix. Am flat on my back at the moment having done something that means lots of pain and very little movement so spent a lot of time listening over the last 24 hours. Marian Keyes is a great writer and I‘ll look out for a few more of hers soon.

I had never read Marian Keyes until I picked Rachel‘s Holiday in November and I now I can‘t stop reading her work. The Break is her most recent novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it listening to it. However, I would say certain passages are a little cringeworthy, I think more sonic if you‘re listening to it but definitely one to read or listen to. #bookbloggers #booktube

Out loud laughing at this, although not sure if it will travel ...

jpmcwisemorgan Ha! It's true though, why do people have to be so tall? 2y
DGRachel As a woman who is 5' 10", I have to say that I appreciate tall men. 2y
RachelO 😂Almost had a tea-laptop incident there. It's true - he's *never* Ashley Banjo. Also, didn't realise he was that tall... 2y

charl08 @jpmcwisemorgan As the shortie in my family, I agree. @DGRachel I guess it's a *short* woman's perspective (no pun intended) then? @rachel0 she's not lost her touch: the urge to highlight everything that makes me giggle means my digital copy is practically colour coded. 2y
batsy "absurd heights" As a short person I'm snorting at this 2y
charl08 @batsy she's a great one for making me snort-giggle. 2y

I love the idea of a carer being the equivalent of KM.

Absolutely loved this book. I love the O'Connells and hope this is the start of a series like the Walshes. I loved Amy and eventually Hugh. I laughed, cried and got angry along with Amy. You could feel every emotion along with her. I really want to know more about Ma O'Connell she was brilliant and deserves her own book we need her story. Definetly in my top 5 for the year and it will take me a while to get over this one. Loved it!!
