Here‘s my progress on my #readyourkindle picks. I read all of my picks. #3 was a mood read prompt and for that, I read Dark Ride by P.G. Kassel. #7 is the 3rd book in a trilogy. I DNF‘d the first book and decided not to continue with the series. #9 was a Kindle Unlimited prompt and I read Andersen‘s Fairy Tales for that. #20 was a mafia romance and I just finished reading it. It was my first mafia romance and I enjoyed it. It won‘t be my last one.

Here‘s my #readyourkindle picks. #3 is a mood read. #7 is the third book in a trilogy. #9 is a Kindle Unlimited book but I don‘t have a book for that one either. If I finish the trilogy and have time, I‘ll start another trilogy that‘s a continuation of The Story Of Us trilogy. The next trilogy is on KU. #20 is a book with steamy chemistry and a mafia boss storyline. Is it a romance? I don‘t know but I think I would enjoy reading it anyway.

Looking forward to my #readyourebooks choice this month as I‘ve shockingly not tried a Jodi Foster bk yet tho they seem right up my alley.
Tagged is #bookspin and #doublespin is Wide Sargasso Sea (which I‘m happy to finally be reading with the #hashtagbrigade)
#aam is giving me the excuse to pick up Station Eleven
So it looks like a game of catch up all round, and not least in #roll100
Hope y‘all having just as much fun this May!

7th book read from Women‘s Prize for fiction Long List
Unpopular opinion but this time, I really liked this novel. In a peculiar, unique sarcastic tone, the author narrate different topics: (social, political, cultural, etc) through this man who visited his country after 26 years of exile.I think it was so creative. Character has a fragmented thinking process, thinking about what he is thinking/observing/doing. ⬇️

Gissy (Cont.) it was funny but in a surrealistic/existencial narrative. I know it is not one of the favorites novel in this list but I enjoyed it because it was different. 4⭐️ 1mo

Gissy @BarbaraBB It is different and mine is an unpopular opinion. I don‘t think this novel will be in the short list.

The experience in reading these novels from the long list have been so interesting, trying to see why the judges selected them😃

I watched a couple of videos about long list predictions and various interesting novels were mentioned that were not selected. I wish I could read them later. But too many books, too little time

Thanks @dabbe for the tag and Thank you @Cupcake12 for creating this play~tag~share card.

1- tackle some errands.

2- Chinchilla...they're like little cuties from a cozy cartoon.

3- There is a bunch of different creatures I would love to be...a surprising pick for me would be the Jaguar. Surprising, because the feline comes in around #20 on my “favorites“ list. Yet, over the last 2years, the Jaguar has been catching my attention for some reason.

AnnCrystal 4- tagged. Started reading this during the winter season...then decided to pause, because the storyline in based in summertime. About time I return...soon. 1mo
AnnCrystal P.S. chinchilla pic is from a book. 1mo

Third in the newest bunch of Munsch. It's still not as intricate, but I'm not complaining. #20-2024

Last book completed during the month of March. I couldn‘t finish another book. Second book read from the Women‘s Prize Fiction long list.
A family saga during Sri Lanka war. So hard and sad. I searched for some information about this time and it was terrible, so many people died, so long this war lasted😢 💔
Beautifully written but hard to read. 4.5/5⭐️

BarbaraBB Great review. I am reading this now as well. 2mo
Gissy @BarbaraBB Looking forward to read your reaction. I haven‘t read the other books in the long list and I don‘t know what judges are looking in those novels but I think this one pass to the short list. 2mo

Mehso-so

Unpopular opinion I guess. I didn‘t enjoy this story. It started so well and there were intparts but sometimes I felt disconnected with the story with details. In my opinion it was not well integrated. I have a couple of books by this author 😬2.5⭐️

Book read I. February 2024

This is about 4 women that became friends, these are their stories about their infidelities. I think they justified their infidelities instead of being honest with their spouses and the May, lack of communication. But it is also about friendship and at the end of the novel, each of them grew as a person. 3⭐️I almost DNF in those first chapters. Nominated in the Planeta Prize🤷🏽‍♀️
