#JoysofJune
Update and revised goals.
1. I am happy to say that I am quickly catching up with #BibleBuddyRead. 😃
2. I know our #LMPBC round 14 group is a bit behind, but I got “These Violent Delights“ in the mail this week & and am scrapping “The Proposal“ for a while.
3. I am happy to say that I am over half done with “Forever Pucked“, maybe will even finish it before weeks end.
I am so happy I am out of my May reading slump! 📙 💖

This was just so-so for me I liked that the author gives you a glimpse into Shanghai China in the 1920 and the Romeo and Juliet retelling it creatively revolves around two rival gangs , I didn‘t mind the scifi element, I think it lays out a good story but because it was the first book in a two book series it just dragged for me I think I will read the second book and hopefully enjoy it more

I loved the setting of 1920s China and the author‘s efforts to make the city feel real to the reader but I didn‘t care for the monster plot or the main characters really or the writing style. Still, a great first novel with good observations about colonialism and identity, so I‘ll look out for what she publishes next.

I am reading, but I‘m really awful at posting these days. I had my booster last night, so most of my day is going to be spent with a heating pad and I this book my daughter bought me for Christmas. And I‘m really going to try to post more.

Andrew65 Lovely cover. Hope the effects of the booster aren‘t too bad. 6mo

I got a few hours into the audio and just wasn't feeling it. I was never a big fan of the original Romeo and Juliet so maybe that's part of it.

Really enjoyed this one! 1920s Chinese take on Romeo and Juliet. I liked the setting and seeing how the author made this work! It was fun #bookspinbingo

@BookishMarginalia was asleep this morning when I woke, so I grabbed a random T-shirt. Imagine my delight (😏) when I saw that I had picked a souvenir from our visit to The Globe two years ago (you know, back when travel was a thing) and that it matches my current read!

ID These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong rests atop my black T-shirt. Shirt has an illustration of an anatomical heart & the words “These violent delights have violent ends.”

kspenmoll I love this! 1y

I am always down for a Shakespeare retelling. 1920s Shanghai is def a unique setting

BacklistReader I‘m excited to hear your thoughts on this one 1y
SassenachTheBookWizard @BacklistReader pleasantly surprised actually. There wasn't anything I disliked. Everyone I knew said to expect a big twist ending but I was still surprised at how it ended 1y
BacklistReader @SassenachTheBookWizard I‘m glad to hear. I keep being pulled in my the cover 1y
