It's a rare lit fic book that catches and holds me and I've been lucky to read several of them this past year. This one, however, just wasn't for me, and I decided not to finish it just because I felt like I should if I owned it. Lovely cover, though.

I got this a long time ago in a Book Riot Book box, and I‘m finally getting around to reading it. I love reading about musicians 😊

JenP @tpixie thanks! We didn't buy the owl. it was at one of those outdoor stalls and we just took a photo of it then put it back. But she did get butterbeer and then candy one of the stores. And the wand 3y

#litsyAtoZ A book about mother-daughter relationships that has a fairy tale vibe. I was on the fence about whether this was a pick or not. Ultimately, despite my misgivings about it, my appreciation of the way in which the author weaves in folklore and magic tipped it to a "pick". This reminded me of The Snow Child but not as good and the ending bothered me.

In honor of #internationalwomensday, my daughters, whom we're raising to be strong willed even though it would make life so so (sooooo) much easier if they weren't.

saresmoore Amen to that. 3y

Reviewsbylola I have two other daughters, 17 and 4. The 4 and 2 year old are two peas in a pod and constantly egging each other on. They are currently wreaking havoc after removing all the couch cushions. There's just no dissuading them when they've set their minds to something. 😂 3y

This is another in the "Most people seem to hate it but I really liked it" category. Or maybe people didn't *hate* it but it has a pretty low rating here & on Goodreads. But I found it fascinating & kind of enchanting. I can see how it would not be to everyone's taste - it's got some mysticism/magical realism, and the time jumps around, but I love all that and felt it was done well. Stories about women in a family tree are my jam too ??4/5⭐

This book is far from perfect but I'm loving the way storytelling and folklore is weaved into the plot.

Bit of a late start to #24in48, but I just finished book #1. This book reads like a fairytale in some parts. A lyrical novel about mothers, daughters, storytelling, and the weight of family history, it follows an opera singer who has recently given birth to a daughter yet struggles with both motherhood and music.

This is probably one of the few magic realism books that I have read. While I didn't hate it, I think there a part that I just didn't get. The writing was beautiful but I don't think that this is my kind of thing.

Loving this, thank you @bookriot for such a great pick! The prose is truly luscious and im a sucker for the operatic extravagance. I was worried this was riding off the buzz of Alexander Chee's Queen of the Night but this is a stellar story in its own right. Big fan so far!

This book... or perhaps magical realism just isn't for me. There are too many books so DNF. Onto something different.

I am glad I didn't bail on it, because the second half of the book was much better. But I spent most of the first half of this book rolling my eyes at overwrought prose and thinking the book should have been titled "The Paternity of My Child Is Ambiguous and This Makes Me an Interesting Person." The second half was much better, focusing less on the narrator's marital problems and more on her relationships with her mom and grandmother.

Yay book ends and book mail! Got my @bookriot #bookmail box for September today and in addition to continuing Sorcerer to the Crown with my own copy, I just had to put these bad boys up. These are some of my recent reads/books I own and love plus some of my husband's favorites too.

Look what arrived! My book mail box from @bookriot is here! I read and loved Sorcerer to the Crown, so will hide that away for a Christmas gift to a fellow reader. I know nothing about The Daughters and that's the way I like it!! I actually needed bookends, so that was handy. 😀
