The wife of an author who thinks she‘s the main character in his latest book sounded intriguing. Almost gave up on this a few times but persevered to see if it got any better, it didn‘t. I found the main character one dimensional and the whole book is boring and repetitive with a disappointing ending

This was quite an interesting story, I didn't love it though. I tending towards not really liking Mrs March, but at the same time sorry she is going through a mental breakdown. The husband isn't exactly all that nice too. Mrs March enjoys her lifestyle until someone comments that the main character who is a prostitute in the new book by her husband could be based on her. This turns her world upside down and she begins to unravel.

1. I am reading three at the moment, the tagged book, plus The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls by Anissa Gray. My nonfiction book is Maiden Voyage by Siân Evans.

2. I am enjoying all three.

This book reminds me of an Alfred Hitchcock plot. Mrs. March is unravelling & slowly losing her mind. Untethered & unreal, Mrs. March exists in a world of expectations never met, while living a surface life with her husband, a successful author & their son. The surface breaks when she hears that her husband‘s latest character-an ugly, unlovable, prostitute-is based on her. This book moves slowly. My issue is that I never cared. 3/5.

Mrs March has a mental illness. How entertaining!! What fun! Let‘s write a novel that reflects the banality and sheer tedium of life with depression or anxiety, but, just for giggles, let‘s give her no self-awareness, even when the most clueless are exposed to rudimentary bullet-points on mental health. How about people who don‘t have a mental illness don‘t write about mental illness-down with psychological appropriation?

“The truth is,” Zelda continued, “this is a game-changing book, one that appeals not only to his fans , but to everyone, no, hold on” —— she wagged a finger at George, who had begun to protest—— “and, I‘m compelled to say , is my favorite book of the last decade! And I HATE to read!”

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨⚡️

This book is cracking me up … & freaking me out , the tension is building…

Tamra I couldn‘t put it down! 😁 2mo

Imagine if Mrs Dalloway were written by Shirley Jackson but it‘s Mrs March you follow around, listening to her thoughts, wondering where the line between her reality and fantasy lies. Is she slightly unhinged or truly psychotic? It‘s not clear until the very end. Then you know. Absorbingly creepy!

Ruthiella Glad to hear you liked this! I have it on hold from the library. 3mo

I‘m not sure what blurbs I had read before reading this book, but this went in a direction that I didn‘t expect. Looking back now at blurbs and reviews they do all say ‘suspense‘, ‘psychological‘, ‘gothic‘ etc, but for some reason, I thought something completely different.

Still, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and I can see why it has garnered such praise.

Ugh - only just noticed the cockroach 🪳 on the cover! 😣

OMG! What did I just read? Pick it up and witness Mrs. March‘s slow and painful decline in to madness. Or was it? In the enduring words of Alice Cooper, “Welcome to [her] nightmare”.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks for putting this on my #ReadersRadar @britt_brooke 💚Completely compelling!! Super unsettling/ Mrs. March might be descending into madness or maybe she‘s more intuitive than this reader thinks. A fun audio - a debut author to watch 😍

I‘m back!!! {{Sort of}} Between jet lag, migraines and overall stress, I haven‘t picked up a book or listened to an audio since last Sunday!! So NO #BookReport this week but here are the two books I‘m hoping to finish before the month ends. Petal is for bookclub on Wednesday and tagged audio is GREAT but my headspace is 💩💩💩

Centique I‘m glad you‘re back! Hope your head space is getting better 💕 Poor old dad is out of hospital but they didn‘t manage to rehabilitate him to his previous abilities - so he‘s not coping well back in his new apartment - and it‘s still lockdown so no family assistance. I think he probably needs to go into a full rest home facility so a decision on that is the next thing. Hopefully he‘s coming to accept that idea too 💕💕 3mo
Centique And I hope your spirits will rise lovely one ☀️There is so much gloom around, I‘m determined to believe in sun light breaking through for all of us! I hope my news about dad doesn‘t depress you 💕💕 It will all get sorted soon I think. 3mo
Cinfhen Hi 👋🏽 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks what‘s new???? 3mo
Cinfhen I‘m really sorry to hear that your dad is having a rough time @Centique and the lockdown situation only exasperates everything. It‘s so upsetting to hear/ watch/see our loved ones get old and to realize they are losing their independence. I pray your dad finds peace in the coming days and begins to feel stronger. You too!!! Sending so much love your way. 3mo
Centique @Cinfhen thank you lovely - sending prayers and love back at ya ♥️💙💜 3mo
Cinfhen We can all use the prayers @Centique 😘😘😘 The Jewish New Year is next week so I‘ll use my Hebrew skills to wish you a Shana Tova U‘Metukah ♥️🍯🍎🍏🍾 A Happy & Sweet New Year filled with blessings, joy, comfort, peace and good health 3mo
Centique @Cinfhen that is the loveliest thing I have heard Cindy. Brings tears to my eyes! I will be so grateful for that 😍💕 3mo

Unsettling, in a can‘t-tear-your-eyes-away kind of way. This portrait of a woman unraveling before your eyes is compulsively readable and wholly believable- which, of course, is why it‘s so very disturbing. Very well done. Coming in August.
